"But smoking looks stupid, whereas helmets (at least some of them) look cool.  And when your smoking friends get to middle age, they will look and feel much older than the rest of us...even if they don't get the big C. "

"My main reason for wearing my helmet all the time is that it quadruples my visibility. It's got just enough white 3M reflective tape to turn it into a 4-way torch, brighter than my lights and placed higher. Put some of this shit on your helmet,…"

Hey April! I've been busy for the past several weeks, but was wondering if yoga is still going at Stone Soup on Wednesdays? Didn't see it on the calendar last week when I checked and just curious if it's still going.

Hope you're doing great!

Shelley
