3 MILE RIDE

If you’re considering commuting through the darkest months, take a leaf from Mark’s survival guide. After all, conditions don’t get more bone-chillingly frigid than mid-winter in the Twin Cities, Minnesota. In January, the average recorded highs are just 7°f (-13°c). It takes a certain amount of grit to pull this off… so who better to talk to […]

The Jewish people, like Amundsen, have had to work pretty hard throughout our expedition through history and we are pretty lucky.

3 MILE RIDE

Images and words by Mike Hayes.  It took a whole year of procrastination and the opportunity to acquire one at a somewhat reduced price, but on reflection I think it was inevitable that it would happen; the possibilities for grin-inducing adventures aboard a fat-tyred, off-road cargo bike, not to mention just not having to use […]

What You Bring To The Table

  I didn’t know that racecar driving was something people actually got excited about until I met Mikail. NASCAR, cricket, and knock-knock jokes are topics that he knows an unholy amount about and he’s enthusiastic enough to make other people excited too. There’s something infectious about his unrestrained energy. At 22, he’s working on his […]

VALLEJO — Kudos to Bay Area Stage for presenting a lesser-known play like “Greetings!” during the Christmas season. I remember one year when no less than four local theater companies were putting on some variation of “A Christmas Carol.” I applaud their decision to go with “Greetings!” but I applaud the show even more as […]

I so remember this tour. It came out of nowhere and no one knew what to expect, before or after. ha. It really was an old-style ‘review,’ with an ever-changing cast. It was at Toronto’s Maple Leaf Gardens, notorious for bad sound and even worse sight-lines. It lived up to its reputation for the Review […]

For 5 years Ukraine has bamboozled supporters by using” independent” researchers like Bellingcat that work with Ukraine’s Intel to fabricate its innocence. On November 25th, the Kerch incident happened, worsening the West’s relationship with Russia ahead of the G-20 Meeting in Argentina. Seemingly right on cue, Russian planners couldn’t find anything better to do than […]
