Who's your cabbie?

Met two Ace Taxi cab drivers today at the Bus Place, Dave (pictured) and Pat, who filled me in on prices... $4 anywhere in $4 extra per extra stop, and $2 per 5 minuetes if driver must wait. Also, passengers don't have to double up.

These prices are "introductory" through Summer.

What really impressed me about the 4 Green fleet vehicles is how clean they are ... and the drivers have all their teeth! ;-)

Go Green!

Giving it the old collage try

Yesterday, I went to Marberry Arboretum and snapped a few photos. There will be chapter on the Arboretum and other local green spots in my blook, Karmadale After Blog.

Does anyone know who Douglas N. McEwen is? The bench where i was sitting when the tree-sky photo was taken is dedicated to him.

I'll be uploading more collages and slideshows to this blog as the blook progresses, using my "SuperSlip 257" and Picasa.

Peace out.

Where's the tea?

About 75 ppl showed up for the #teaparty in C'dale, including... on TwitpicThe local "Tea Party" was pretty well attended by mostly older people. Jeff Trexler, Secy of the local (newly formed) Constitution Party, opened the gathering with a prayer, the everyone took their place in line. I was hoping to find Shawn the Beer Philos'pher there, since it was he who tipped me off (on Twitter) about this event, and he and I expressed a difference of opinion about it's importance: I called it "sour grapes in a teapot" but Shawn said he'd rather have sour grapes than kool-aid... (Maybe Shawn should trying selling sour grapes at a sidewalk stand this summer to see which beverage washes down better with the public).

Also in the crowd, my house manager (who intensely dislikes Obama) and local blogger "Greener Than Thou" who handed out flyers of her own: about spending tax money to kill children and save bankers (and writes about the experience "At the Mad Hatters Tea Party" in her blog).

Also old friends Mark and Lynn (who spoke against Obama "spreading abortion" throughout the world with his policies).

Didn't see any tea, though... Click on the photo for more detail.

Bye bye (buy) Bytelife

Yesterday, I pulled the plug on Carbondale Bytelife since no one was posting to it, and my hands are full with other projects and blogs.

All 839 posts have been archived, and will be published in the DVD version of the blook Karmadale After Blog (now due in Fall 2009). Meanwhile ... individual posts will cost 25 cents, with a discount for multiple requests. For instance, all 839 posts could sell for 5 cents per post (about $40).

A chronological title and author list of all the Bytelife posts will be placed on the redirect page.

Better idea?
