These Are Some of My Favorite Things

Multi-Hull Sailboats That Are Actually Sailed-

My "new" non-folding Folbot sailing kayak with hydrodynamic outriggers

My daughter playing in the surf

And, of course, bike racks...

My favorite Bar in Norfolk, Crackers, has installed a bike rack right on the front sidewalk!
Let's hear it for tapas, cocktails & fixies!!

I've added links to, the website for posting pix to Google Earth. One way to help the cycling community grow in Norfolk is to publicize the location of sturdy bike parking. Not all bike racks are made the same-

Those all-too-ubiquitous cheap-ass bike racks can be busted with a monkey wrench. A thief doesn't need to bust your bike lock, just the rack. Then they can take the bike home & bust the lock at their leisure. So think twice before you use a bike rack that's already been defeated...

Gerber Clutch vs. Gerber Clutch

If I was in a clutch, I know which one I'd rather have in hand...

Gerber Clutch Mini Pliers

Gerber Lil' Clutch Security Blanket

Then again, I think I know which one my daughter would rather have, too...
