I meant to post this a few days ago ...

But there is a long story involving me hating my Macintosh and Quicktime Pro and i-movie and much gnashing of teeth ...

Anyway, Friday night we went to see Scene of The Crime Rovers debut:



Also there are Flickrpix:

Also, we went on a bike ride Sunday and in the process of trying to find a trailhead for a greenway path that supposedly exists in north Durham, we discovered a brand-spanking-new bit of street (so new it's not yet shown on any of the online map apps) that could have easily been built with bike lanes but wasn't. This really makes me think that the city of Durham's supposed committment to becoming bicycle-friendly is really a giant crock of shit. Oh oops, that's right, we can't build any bicycle friendliness until we are done drafting, re-drafting and revising our bicycle master plan, and that could take years! It would be better to keep building roads without bicycle lanes and then later, when the master plan tells us that a route between two greenway trailheads should probably have bicycle lanes, we'll go tear up the curbs we just built and put some bike lanes in!

Maybe you're thinking of the Ellerbe Creek trail? I just have to go down to the dead end of my street to get on that one.

We were looking for the Warren Creek Trail, which we probably would have found if the brand-new street (actually an extension of Stadium Drive) hadn't thrown us completely off-track.
