Why Aren’t You Riding Your Bike?

I don’t have a bike. Not a bad point. You should acquire a bike. In many cities, some our size, health insurance companies (and other companies) sponsor racks of bikes all over cities. Check out this program in Chicago https://member.divvybikes.com/stations Here are 119 cities. https://ggwash.org/view/62137/all-119-us-bikeshare-systems-ranked-by-size It’s too hot. Not anymore.

Baking, Books, and Hot Chicken

I’ve been all over creation this past month. And by “all over” I mean I went to Birmingham one weekend and Nashville another. Oh, and I popped into Prattville Pickers too. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind month. One of my absolute favorite places to go while I’m in Birmingham, besides PF Changs and […]

A Renter’s Hunt for Home

A Renter’s Hunt for Home

By on 30 August, 2017 in Lynne Schneider, Real Estate with 1 Comment

We’d been saving newspaper for about six weeks, and it was time to take it to the shelter. Sometimes the stack of newspaper gets large enough that you worry about the perceptions that visitors might have. The shelter always wants newspaper to line the puppy cages with, so we loaded up the dog (because she […]

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” – Socrates People who know me well know that I’m a bit of an artistic enigma. Perhaps it is something to do with my Leo/Virgo cusp birthday? Whatever the cause, I live my life […]

How to Watch Football 2017 – Montgomery, AL Edition

By on 21 August, 2017 in Fun, Kate and Stephen with 0 Comments

Let’s make a couple of assumptions together: 1. There is a better way to consume football than to just slavishly follow every single game of your favorite team. We already accept that we are essentially cheering for a collection of colors, songs, phrases and gestures. So while you might know the names of the unpaid […]

By on 17 August, 2017 in Historic Midtown, Karren Pell with 0 Comments

School has started, and so I thought I would review some history on Capitol Heights Elementary School. Carole King and I did a presentation at Old Alabama Town in July on the school, and it seemed interest in school remains strong. My interest in solving my history mysteries about schools in Capitol Heights remains strong. […]
