Church On The Beach


Church On The Beach, originally uploaded by Mozul.

We went to Church On The Beach today. It was great fun. Our church holds services on Torrance Beach from the weekend after Memorial day to the weekend before Labor Day. One of our highlights of the summer.

Electric Scooters

I have been reading about some pretty cool electric scooters lately.

This one is pretty inexpensive:

It is only $1999. But it has a 40MPH top speed and only 45 mile range. It uses Lead Acid batteries.

Edit: 2-24-2011

The previous model was no longer there.  It is now replaced by the R30 at EVT America that costs $2890 and has a 45 MPH top speed and a 30 mile range.

 

This one is better, but a lot more expensive:


$11,000 but Max speed 62MPH and 68 Mile range. It uses NiMH batteries and a brushless motor.

Asian-Pacific American Heritage Picnic

Today at work they had the “Asian-Pacific American Heritage Picnic” in the central mall at my company. It was great fun. I chose one of the Vietnamese Sandwiches for my lunch.

They had musicians and a martial arts demo. Raffle prizes too, but I didn’t win anything.




I had my name written in Chinese calligraphy and got a piece of origami too. Fun times!



Bike To Work Day


Me at the Bike To Work Day Pit Stop at the Nash Green Line station

All the loot I got today!

Today is Bike To Work Day during Bike To Work Week. I fixed my tire that went flat last night, and rode my bike in today as well. I have ridden in three days so far this week. I saw several other bike riders, mostly when I got close to my work in El Segundo. They had a pit stop set up at the Nash Green Line station near my work and were giving out goodie bags and bagels and drinks. I of course participated! Free stuff and Free food! Who can beat that! I had someone take my picture next to the sign there and they also took my picture for the Los Angeles Metro system with their camera. He was a volunteer for the LA Metro. Did you ride your bike to work today? If not, why not?not?
