Found an interesting article today...
Ripon College, in Wisconsin, has started offering free mountain bikes and helmets to freshmen, who vow not to bring a car on campus. Private donors have driven the $300-per-student program. Ripon’s initiative represents the rising concern for skyrocketing oil costs.

I have a smart phone that incorporates, among other things, internet explorer. I recently ran across a couple web based applications that can be run from my PDA. The two great applications work with Windows Mobile for mapping and finding locations, and both work with or without GPS.

Yesterday marked the 75th anniversary of the repeal of prohibition! Historians note that Prohibition officially ended on December 5, 1933, with the ratification of the 21st Amendment. But earlier that year, newly-elected President Franklin D. Roosevelt took steps to fulfill his campaign promise to end the national ban on alcohol. He spurred Congress to modify the Volstead Act to allow the sale of 3.2 percent beer in advance of the Twenty-first Amendment being ratified. Thus on April 7, 1933 there was legal beer once again!
