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.

FRENCH VISA AND HEALTH INSURANCE FOR AMERICANS

The most expensive item in an American family's budget may be health insurance. But many Americans have no understanding of the true cost of their insurance because it's included in their employment package. Folks simply don't think about how much their employer may be reducing their salaries when factoring in insurance costs.

Before I retired, my employer paid for my health insurance but I had to pay to insure my wife. The cost, taken out of my every paycheck, came to about $6,000 annually. And even with insurance, there were co-pays and other out of pocket expenses. We were reasonably healthy (and still are, knock wood), but we each take a few common prescription medications - for blood pressure and cholesterol and the like, nothing exotic or costly. Even so, with regular visits to the doctor, periodic lab work, the drugs, and the occasional illness or injury, we normally spent an additional several thousand dollars annually in the States over and above the cost of the i…

ASIA MARKET, BEZIERS: WORTH A VISIT

The Southern Woman That I Married is an accomplished, multi-cultural cook. Over the years, our table has been graced with examples of authentic fare from the world over. If there is one limitation to the diversity of the menus that Cathey can create here in the south of France, it's the availability of proper ingredients. Sometimes, it's the simple things. I've spent my entire life enjoying lox on a bagel smeared with cream cheese for breakfast on a Sunday morning. There's fine smoked salmon on display in just about every supermarket here, but even though the packaging of Philadelphia Cream Cheese looks the same as in the States, the formula is clearly different. It just doesn't taste the same. And a bagel? A real, honest-to-goodness, Brooklyn-style bagel? In the rural south of France? Fuhgeddaboudit.

For Cathey's cookery, more exotic fare than bagels and cream cheese is required. Almost immediately after our move here four years ago, she lamented the difficult…
