I arrived at the hospital without my phone as I jettisoned it somewhere on the way and with the solar panel flapping off. While I was having imaging done over 8 hours including a relaxing two hours lunch break on a sunny grassy area the Director of Nuclear Medicine sciences and Kirsten Hurst a Senior Nuclear Medicine scientist scraped off old glue and re solasticed on the panel. Hows that for service !

This is a comment lifted from the Youtube page:

I made a comment about 10 days ago, hoping for 100,000 views for her 80th Birthday being 23/10/14. 3 days after that it seemed it ‘might exceed 300,000. Now it seems quite possible (with 2 days to go) it might even make 500,000 (half a million) thanks to all you wonderful people viewing, sharing and being so appreciative of her unique talent. All you people ‘are’ the world, and the world is listening. Natalie and myself thank you all.

No Tykes on Trikes

T.J. Mckeown, a 57-year-old retired massage therapist from Palm Bay, Fla., fell and hurt his shoulder while riding a conventional bike last year. He bought a recumbent trike and says he’ll never go back to an upright. Mr. Mckeown rides up to 200 miles a week, including the Sundays he spends with a group of buddies called the Recumbent Rangers.

On regular bikes, “you start noticing pain in your wrist and your neck and certain areas of your anatomy that we won’t get into,” Mr. Mckeown says. “The trikes, there’s none of that.”

Penn Jillette, the speaking partner in the magician duo Penn & Teller, says that riding his recumbent trike around his Las Vegas neighborhood is like wearing leather pants: “You feel like a superstar, but you look like a dweeb,” he says. “People aren’t used to trikes, but I love mine. I feel like [Jimi] Hendrix when I’m riding it, and I don’t care what I look like.”

Recumbent trikes are a tiny fraction of the $6 billion U.S. cycling industry. But trike manufacturers and sellers say business is booming, driven by baby boomers who have discretionary income and are unwilling or unable to weather higher-impact activities like running. Many trikes cost $1,000 to $3,000 or more.

We need this here too.
What struck me was that Americans have a missing childhood developmental stage of being an infant, a toddler, and a child on a bike before they get on a bike independently. And even though little Americans are propped up in a baby trailer or behind the rider’s seat, they still miss what parents in Belgium and the Netherlands teach their kids.The difference is in plain sight: the child is up front on the handlebars or on a cross bar. When the bicyclist enters the traffic pattern, the child bobs and weaves and tilts with the parent. The kid gets imprinted with confrontations on the bike, slow-downs for intersections, people passing, people stopping, all that stuff that experienced riders know after years of riding. All that experience helps develop two key traits for a life of civilized cycling: anticipation and courtesy.If you spend a year and a half as a preverbal kid riding on a bicycle, that’s something you don’t get later. That’s a hard wiring..
