I’m watching a copy of The Corporation, a film about corporation and its effects on us. So, if you see a few anti-corporate rant or two in the near future, this might have been the catalyst. But, it might not be, as I’ve pretty much already made up my mind.
There was a 3 car accident at the intersection of Maple and Westmorland bridge. The intersection had to be closed down to be cleaned up and I believe there were injuries. I hope that it wasn’t too serious. The cars were really smashed up, leading me to believe that somebody was going way too fast through there, which is normal. The speed limit is 50kmh but many sail through at 80-90kmh (or faster), and the intersection is rough and bumpy.
I got the tires patched on a bike I got for Abby (for free) and a new tube for Caleb’s front. Now the kids both have bikes (and yes, we bring them inside at night now). Abby is loving her “big bike”, although she’s just getting onto pedaling. I remember when Caleb first learned.
Interesting fact about me: I was not taught how to ride a bicycle and never used training wheels. I was visiting my cousin one weekend and tried her two-wheeler, which had either 20″ or 24″ wheels. It was a full sized bike, really. The only reason I, as a child, could get on it was that it was a girls bike. I had no hope of sitting on the seat. I got on and started to ride – just like that! I wish that I could do that with learning to make oodles of money!
Its a nice day. Maybe we’ll take the phrase, “Go fly a kite!” to heart.
