Every Halloween, the Great Pupkin rises out of the most sincere pawpaw patch and spreads Joy and Diet Pepsi over all the outraged babies of the world.

And every year mon petite plantains are passed over. Why do my tiny bananas always disappoint?

Good grief.

Those of you who put up with me being here know that I normally only post from work. I am about to be on a week-long hiatus (thank you SWEET BABY CHEESES) from work, which could possibly mean I won't be around until I return back to work. If that happens to be the case and I don't see all you lovely mentlegens and lady before Thanksgiving, I would like to wish you all a happy holiday! I hope you all have wonderful eats and get to spend lots of time with your families and frens. And if you are travelling, be safe!

Ha! I had forgotten about Thanksgiving... he he he another excuse to make pumpkin and walnut muffins.

We have a new lady starting at work on Tuesday, and we found out it's also her birthday that day so I'm going to make a cake for her... lol can do vegan but I really hope she doesn't have a gluten allergy or anything.

Usually I do muffins or something like that if I bake for work as they can go in a lunchbox in my backpack (cannot cycle with a cake in your backpack and still have a cake when you get there!) and it's a small team where not everyone is on an office day at once, but everyone is in on Tuesday and as it's a burbleday lol well I can walk in with a cake.

It's hard for most Yanks to imagine a society where so many people don't drive cars. And I'm not putting it down; there are obvious advantages. What's the percentage of Brits without wheels, do you guess?

It wouldn't surprise me if it's about the same as in the US... motoring is a lot more expensive here though and with the ongoing economic whatever it is, increasing numbers of people are cycling.

Also, the last time I showed helmet cam footage to a dude I know in Florida... he asked me if all of our cars were that tiny! lol I had never thought about that although I guess we have narrower roads and this is quite a densely populated country.

It would surprise me. All the Brit ex-pats I know here say more yanks than brits drive. Unless you live in one of the biggest Merkin cities, mass transit is pretty sucky. Elsewhere, everything's just too spread out.

The ex-pats also marvel @ the percentage of ordinary chaps who're homeowners.

They also laugh @ the fact that so many yanx have never visited another country.

And they talk funny. But we like it.

To give one example in my last UK visit, I would definitely not want to drive through the center of Bath England with one of the giant American SUVs you so commonly see over here.

By my best guess via the Interwebs, the % of people without a car in the UK is indeed higher than the US (about 25% vs. about 10%). However, a trend among these young urban hipsters is to move to cities with enough rail, bike friendly paths, etc. that you don't need a car. The US % without a car was around 6% two years ago. The opposite trend was happening in the UK in 2008, car ownership was growing... but who knows what the financial crisis has done to this. (US source; UK Source)

Cycling to many things would be awesome, to be honest, much cheaper. But cycling is flat out dangerous the way many US cities are designed.

At first I was like: Wut, u mean some app where you travel about the virtual landscape by thumb pedaling?
But then I was: Oh I think u mean an actual bike powered partially by E.

That actually sounds pretty cool. How fast will it go?

I'm not looking for speed, just something to help me up the hills so I don't arrive at work a sweaty mess.

The one I'm looking at has a top speed of 25kmh, but that doesn't really make sense as you could do MUCH faster than that going downhill.

Whoo hoo!


The biggest part of owning car to me, is being in debt to it. I don't mind driving. If I didn't have kids, I'd opt for more and better public transportation though.

I have two cars, and a car park at work so in that sense it's hard to motivate myself to ride in.

I have never taken a loan for a car - always pay cash. I can't stand the thought of paying interest on such a rapidly depreciating asset.

That said.....I have pretty crappy cars :-)
