IONTW – September 18, 2016

Somewhere in Grammarland: Following a rule you didn’t even know was a rule.

Shake it!

Claude, the albino alligator at the California Academy of Sciences, is old enough to drink! Well, he turned 21 anyway.

Speaking of time, should you choose time or money?

And, sometimes 3 minutes is forever. Sadly, a cyclist was killed during a Sonoma County fundraising event last weekend. A motorist traveling the opposite direction on a two-lane road pulled into the cyclists’ lane to pass a slow-moving truck. There was a flurry of chatter on the local club’s chat list on various aspects of the situation, one thing that really struck me was that the driver was apparently a half mile from home. Someone pointed out that even if the truck were only going 10 miles an hour, that distance would have taken 3 minutes. 3 minutes. What was so important?

The 2016 Napa Valley Ride to Defeat ALS is coming up October 1. I will not be riding this year, but Colavita has a team again, please consider making a donation in memory of Paul Stimson.

Book news – got to the top of the library queue for Hope Jahren’s Lab Girl.

Last (or at least I’m stopping here), and certainly not least – today is SFCB’s Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival 2016

Oops, spoke to soon (about that stopping thing) – realized that next IONTW will be after the following events, and they both sound like good ones!
