Rosa Parks’ pancake recipe. Yep. Of course she’s a Person of Historical Significance, but she was also a person. With a pancake recipe. Warms my heart and makes me feel good about the world. (No, I havne’t made them yet.)
May is Bike Month, and the 11th was Bike to Work Day, which I have mixed feelings about – I appreciate efforts to get more people out of their cars and hate to be a downer, but it always seems a little artificial, and, at least in the Bay Area, to be focused in areas that are more affluent and/or already have a greater number of bike commuters (OK, so maybe recognizing existing commuters is a nice touch) and I’m not sure how much actual long term effect it has. Marketing/feel good window dressing is always my first reaction when I see that it’s coming. Anyway, here’s a good read on people who do ride their bikes to work. Every. Day. And not to their tech job where they have bike lockers and showers.
