CA Itinerary – Thursday

Following the Go Karts on Wednesday I was feeling a little tired and, frankly, sore. I also had a test on Friday (I was here for a class after all) so I spent Thursday after class studying:

Thursday-Jan 23

7:00 Breakfast
8:00am – 5:00pm Light Brigade Class
6:00pm Order Thai food delivery
8:00pm Wander over to the gas station next door looking for dessert.  I ended up with Pecan ice cream bar

CA Itinerary – Monday

As mentioned here I was in California last week.  This was a trip paid for by my employer with the main purpose of Fiber Optic training.  For purposes of my own records and in case you all are interested, I’m going to post some of what I accomplished based on my google calendar and memory (the difference being obvious because of where the exact times are). This was Monday:

How public transportation can reduce congestion

I found this on the site i love charts and it was a eureka moment.  One of the best explanations I’ve seen as to why buses help traffic issues, not hurt.  At least, if they were embraced and all the seats were full.
