Bruise the Movie ~ Motorcycle Riding in LA ~ Salad ~ Turkeys ~ HB Harley Dude


Good 44Âș raining raining morning. A "stay inside" day for sure!

 
Keep your chin up, only the first 40 years of parenthood are the hardest..


LOL, I made a movie of Bruiser laying on my desk. Sorry about the audio, don't know what that buzzing sound is...
He just takes over. When I say, "good boy" he flicks his tail!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Here is some good news for those of you who ride motorcycles on the Los Angeles area freeways.... thanks to Jim Hoffman and his sister Judy Duvall for reminding me to post this....

Motorcycles no longer need FasTrak transponders to use ExpressLanes

The ExpressLanes on the 10 freeway are scheduled to open at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, weather permitting. There is a press event Friday morning at the new El Monte Station — adjacent to the ExpressLanes — but I wanted to put the word out early that motorcycles no longer need FasTrak transponders to use the lanes; motorcycles use the lanes for free.
Those who have opened motorcycle only accounts will be notified by email and issued refunds when they return the transponder.
Why do motorcycles no longer need transponders? The toll system on the ExpressLanes is automated. A software update to the system now allows cameras to recognize standard motorcycle license plates — thus ensuring they won't receive a notice for not having a transponder.

Salad was breakfast/lunch yesterday. I cut up some cabbage, tomatoes, avocado, and steamed some broccoli for 5 min in the microwave and put on the salad warm. Topped all with Ken's Steakhouse Honey Mustard Dressing (Thanks Deb for turning me onto this dressing! OMGOOD)


 

The turkeys are out in full regalia for the mating season.

 
They always remind me of the song from West Side Story...
