A quick post just to commemorate our day-trip to Santa Barbara. The photo is in front of a former hotel converted to freshman dorm about a mile from campus. At least 75% of residents ride bikes; others skateboard. This was a mere sliver of the bike racks.
Also on our visit we heard NY TImes columnist Thomas Friedman speak about his latest book — Hot, Flat, and Crowded. What an amazing speaker and thinker! I wish he could be Energy Czar, or Czar of anything to lead our country. The lecture we heard live is also at http://www.thomaslfriedman.com, right sidebar, you’ll need to download Silverlight..
No knitting content: somehow I couldn’t really knit in the car and we were otherwise really busy.
