What A Cool Treehouse!! Has its own slide and two swings attached. This beauty was recently erected and I could hear the laughter of children as I rode by. Made Me Smile

However, if you were ever considering riding a bike, this would be the ideal time to adventure on. There are fewer automobiles on the road and under less polluted conditions. And courteous?? I have experienced a number of drivers waving me on or a least acknowledge me at intersections. Before Corona Virus ( BCV ) my commuter bike's saddle bags were too small to see, my rear bike light wasn't flashing bright enough, and countless times I have almost been clipped by motorist distracted by who knows what these days. Not these mornings, granted I am not riding the commuter as often, smooth sailing and friendly drivers. GET OUT AND RIDE
The River Trail at night is something really special. Particularly now that Mr Moon is making an appearance. Even though its less than half full, the trails characteristics stand alone under minimal illumination of moonlight. Sliding on that double edge sword, the twinkling stars are not quite washed out and the constellations are very recognizable. Orion when I ride west and Pegasus hangs in the eastern sky during my return trip. Venus is way A$$ bright right now, Jupiter is rather noticeable, and Mars is there if you look closely. Riding At Night Rocks
I will admit that nighttime activities lack one aspect for me. During the day, I can check out. Evening rides require a little more intensive focus. But on the up swing, enjoying the audible sounds of darkness. No Earbuds Needed
THIS IS MY OWN OPINION HERE. KAFM locked their doors to all volunteers and went 24/7 computer programmed automation. I sure as hell do not agree with this for a number of reasons. At least one staff member should be on air from 9am to 6 or 7pm. Not hosting a show but simply being a presence on air. "Your not listening are you?" I am asked. "Absolutely not." has been my response. I don't believe in automated shows EVER.
Again, in my opinion, KAFM is essential to community outreach, updates, and reassurance. A number of us in this Valley don't own TV's or prefer to NOT turn on that idiot box these days. We rely on the radio for entertainment, regional updates, or quite possibly a daily soundtrack while we work, house clean, or prep meals. I am aware of MY first world problems and there ARE bigger issues taking precedence. Like parents realizing that teachers AREN'T the problem. AGAIN, just my opinion here.
Before the doors were closed, the Program Director was sending out updates via e-mails. The PD even made statements about how listeners have really enjoyed the shows during the beginning of the pandemic outbreak. How the programs were the perfect distraction from these current events and complete BullSh*t updates from mainstream media sources. For me, its just really frustrating. If one staff member is in the building, opens the disinfected door for the ONE volunteer, guides them to the studio so both parties know nothing extra was contaminated, the program host the 9-noon time slot, escorted out, and this is replayed two more times. The 1-3pm show and the 3-6pm time slot. To me, THIS IS Essential to the community. While box store are open, no Phuc-N way can they sanitize everything touched. KAFM sure as Phuc should be broadcasting live. Again, this is my take and my rant. What Do I Know
This was sent to me and its gotta be the worst one yet or at least the most difficult of ones. I guarantee you can't solve it. My friends know I enjoy solving picture puzzles and that I am a game nut. Playing cards, board games, a brain teasers etc are highly entertaining to/for me.

Well, hope my overall attitude shifts for the better in 30 days. April has been a rough start but confident that April will end on a high note. Again, remind your loved ones why you love them. It Helps To Hear! Feels even better when a little gratitude is expressed and received.
