How Not to Destroy a Cell Phone

Step 1 - Don't give it to Eric
Step 2 - If you do, make sure it never leaves his handy belt holder
Step 3 - If that fails make sure he doesn't put it on top of his car
Step 4 - If he does, try to stop him from driving off with the phone still on his roof
Step 5 - If all this fails, grab a chair and watch for the Mini-Van to run it over in the street and have a good laugh.

Driever has showed us that cell phones aren't able to stop moving vehicles.

Mr. Fix It

I thought it might be nice to share some helpful hints on how to remodel and update your home. These pics are some of my proudest moments as a do-it-yourself Mr. Fix it. I would be happy to share more or you can wait for my first published 'how to' book on around the house handy work entitled "This is Why My House Burned Down."

The Ellusive Paddon Spotted

Rarely seen in the wild, the Paddon was spotted around 16th and J in Midtown a few weeks ago. Remarkably I caught him during the 14 minutes he was NOT actually riding his bike during the month of May. Funny thing about this picture... I was sitting in a restaurant across the street, snapped a photo with the flash and everyone looked outside as if there was some celebrity out there. Looks like Jack is even more of a local celebrity now.

May is Bike Month - Finale

I see there were a lot of miles logged over the weekend. Great Job! We so far have been able to hold off the competition but not by much. They are a little more than 200 miles behind us. The web page will allow logging of miles that were completed during may for a few more days. If you rode during may and did not log your miles please do so.
W+P has 6 people over 500 miles and to even think about getting into the top 10 you need to have ridden at least 200 miles. That is amazing! Great job all around this year W+P. Below is a list of all those who rode at least 100 miles. Thank you to all who rode and made it a successful event. You are all healthier because of it.

Here are a few very honorable mentions. This is our 500 club

Jack, 857 miles? WOW! And you were gone for a week? I am thinking 1000 next year.
Mark, You damn near made it to 700. Awesome!! How are your knees?
Jaggers, You edged out Robi who I know was gunning for you!
Robi, Absolutely no shame in 526. That is more than I have ever done. I am simply stunned!
Terry, You edged out the monster Robert who tried to catch you by simply riding a Century Friday. In the heat no doubt.
And Robert this is the first year you made it to 500 and your first Century. Amazing! Great Job!

Not so far behind are our 300 Mile members

Tom… His first outing for us and Rookie of the year!
And Jim, Wow 300 miles? Top Notch! I am in for your announcement that “June is Golf Month”.

Mark and Robi's Ride

Ahhh...finally they're done!

A tired and full bunch of riders.
Finally, Jack's bike got a rest.

Well Saturday morning was a beautiful day to ride and that is just what we did. We had 11 riders show up at Mark and Robi's house. At 9:30 we were off for a 20 mile bike ride through the Rocklin and Lincoln countryside. Thanks to the following riders for showing up: Jack, Terry, JTW, Dianne Williams, Linda Green, Ryan Culver-Engler, Justin Engler, James, Tom, Robi and Mark . We even brought our next door neighbor, Ronnie along with us. Terry road to our house from his Mom's and put in an extra 20 miles before we started. Jack road from Newcastle and also had 20 miles in for the day before we started. After the ride and lunch Jack put back on his riding gear and once again headed off on his bike......we think he stopped riding some time on Monday. :)
Together we logged over 200 miles for Team W + P. Way to go!

Oakmont H.S. Wins Architectural Design Competition

A few months back 3 young aspiring architects from Oakmont High School stopped by for some help on a design competition they entered. They were a little nervous at first. Really...who wouldn't be nervous in the presence of such a 3D graphical genius as Jeff? The competition was a Re-Use of an existing building (old pump station between I-80 and the river near Old Town) turning it into an Aquarium. They had the design figured out (which included a green roof and solar panels) they just needed help making it come to life on the computer. We gave them some insider information, special cheat codes and gave them the secret handshake and sent them on their way. Well, just got an update. They won 1st place out 12+ schools!
