Of Taxes Taxis and Taxonomies

A commenter to my previous post "Doug Law" asked if I paid taxes. Of course! I also have proof of insurance and registration, and valid license. But since I usually always ride bicycle, the license plate renewal 'scaped my notice. It's taken care of now. ... It would be cheaper to just sell the car, and take a taxi around town.

Not with Moonlight cabbie Rob Taylor though. It's reported in the Daily Egyptian, that he's quitting the business at the end of the semester, since fares have already been down, even before new taxi service came to town. I wonder who owns it. Someone with a business degree.

Taxonomies. Using TweetDeck for Twitter allows users to group the folks they're "following" into user-created categories. My categories are Folks and Friends ... News .... Geeky ... Marketing ... Entertainment.

If you aren't on Twitter yet, you should be! If you follow my updates, you'll be the first to know about tomorrow's meeting w/ Mayor Cole about this year's Bike 2 Work Day, or my YouTube video about it. ... Or the name of the owner of Ace Taxi. And more good info.

Is it time to buy & install a basket to carry groceries on your bike?

No basket, but could use a rack on the back.
