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?

This is Bike To Work Week. Today is the Bike To Work Challenge. It is a contest amongst the local companies in El Segundo to get the most number of people to ride their bikes in to work. When I signed the form as I rode in, I was number 60 for our company. It is a good day to do it too since they give away a t-shirt and goodie bag to each rider that comes in. They also have bagels, coffee, and other food to eat for breakfast too. They will let us know later today who won the challenge.nge.

Christmas 2006

We had a good Christmas time this year. Spent it at home with family. Here are some pictures from the time:

Christmas Eve Dinner
We had Christmas Eve Dinner with my family at my sister’s house in Seal Beach. We always have beef fondue for dinner.

Christmas Eve Service
After dinner we went to the Christmas Eve service at my sister’s church, Grace Community Church in Seal beach.

Jeffrey Up Front
Jeffrey got chosen as one of the volunteers to help with a portion of the service.

Duet
This is my mom’s favorite part of the service. The pastor and choir director do a duet of "Oh, Holy Night" together. It is great!

Stockings
Our Christmas morning is pretty chaoitic at first. Everyone is allowed to open their stocking when they get up. The presents wait until after breakfast.

Christmas Breakfast
Christmas breakfast was great! Eggs and lots of extras.

Boys and Forts
Jeffrey and Bradley made a fort from all the gifts.

Family
My sister’s family plus my mom.
