Nice day for a ride and probably the last one until 5/11
More from Bloomberg: “Republicans have said they want to cut $100 billion from the federal budget as early as January. That would amount to 21 percent of the government’s so-called discretionary spending and target programs such as college loans for low-income students or medical research at the National Institutes of Health.
“Less than one-third of poll respondents — 31 percent — say they support cutting federal spending in areas such as education and health care, excluding Social Security, Medicare and defense.”
After a ten-day hiatus I was able to go out for a long ride today. Having guests for several days and a couple of road trips kind of cut into my riding time. Since this is my first summer with the scooter I don’t like to go too long without riding, I want to keep expanding my comfort zone.
The temperature is about 25 degrees cooler than it was the last time I rode but it was exhilarating to get out again. The ride took me past the apple orchards where I could see the apples have turned a bright red in the past couple of weeks and was glad to see some of the farms still had blueberries for sale. I need to get back out there tomorrow - no cash with me today so I couldn’t buy any. Several of the farms around here just put their berries out and people pay on the honor system, making their own change and depositing their money in the drawer. It’s good to see some people still have that sense of trust.
