2WHEELS 4 MEALS MOTORCYCLE/SCOOTER CHARITY RIDE


2 Wheels 4 Meals will be held on Saturday, June 12, 2010, to benefit emergency feeding programs. Last year, the Lehigh County Conference of Churches served 55,000 meals free of charge to the hungry, the homeless, people with mental illness, and the working poor. Every $25 raised will buy 100 meals. In May of 2009, Scoot for Food attracted 40 riders but the name caused some of our higher displacement cousins to avoid the ride. So this year, it's 2 Wheels 4 Meals. A loop of about 55 miles is planned, starting and ending in Keystone Park (Route 329 and Green Street) in Bath where there will be a live band and burgers and dogs, included in the ride registration. Two rest stops have been arranged. One stop will be at Blockers Enterprises, a huge Harley/Yamaha/Kawasaki dealership (http://blockers.com). The other will be at the country estate of an avid motorcycle collector who will allow the use of his swimming pool and hot tub! You can check out a part of Biker Bill’s collection of Harley’s that’s up for sale at http://www.bikerbill-hd.com. The Miller Blood Center van will be on site for donations. Respond to this posting or call the Scootdude at 610.762.7210 for a registration form or a flyer. $20 per rider includes the ride, the ride tee shirt, and BBQ. $15 for just the ride and the food without the shirt. Below are some pictures from last year's ride.

RESTAURANT ETIQUETTE IN FRANCE: SIMPLE PRIMER (WITH TONGUE IN MY AMERICAN CHEEK)

My recent reading of a poor internet review of a favorite restaurant of ours prompted this post. Some people simply should not be allowed internet access. Speech may rightly be free, but it shouldn't be worthless. From reading the review, I could determine that the reviewer was a tourist who started out in a bad mood because he had to pay extra for parking a camper van that exceeded the maximum height for parking in the free lot. His party arrived at the restaurant at the end of lunch and without a reservation. At first, he was told that an empty table that he pointed out was reserved. When he persisted, he was informed that lunch was over. Since none of the other restaurants in town were still open, the reviewer had to miss lunch. Let me count the ways... RESERVATIONS ARE NECESSARY. Maybe not at Burger King, maybe not in a touristy restaurant in a touristy destination. But if you are really hungry, if you really want to try that restaurant that everybody's talking ab

FINDING A HOUSE IN FRANCE: FIRST STEPS #2

  First, be advised. I am not an expert in anything except my own experiences. And my experiences are confined to a particular time and place. If you have issues, I welcome them in Comments. We've been house hunting in Herault on several occasions since 2003. (Herault is a French department, somewhere between an American county and a state.) We twice visited to find a holiday home from which to learn about and explore the region. After deciding that this region of France was where we wanted to settle in our retirement, another search led to our current home of seven and a half years. And recently, we searched for a home with broader, gentler stairs given the state of our old bones. So I do speak from experience. As always, my advice is free of charge and worth every penny. There's no multiple listing service in France. Each agent has their own website and, while some agencies do cooperate with partner agencies, it can easily be the case that there is a house for sale next door

ARCHIVED VIDEO CONCERNING APRIL, 2021 LOCKDOWN

 I made this video a few months ago, but things moved so quickly that I never published it. Now that France is experiencing the fourth COVID wave, I thought that it might be interesting to revisit.
