Jane Healy replied to h' 1.0's discussion Air conditioner poll-- who's getting by without?
"We turned our a.c. on for a few hours yesterday, but have not used it this summer otherwise. We have ceiling fans in most rooms, as well as a whole house fan that is well nigh miraculous for pulling the cool evening air in at night."

Major Taylor Trail tree watering workday at Major Taylor Trail, 127th St. to 124th St.

Hey Jane,

I got your phone message about the Bike Winter meetings...but I must have copied your phone number down incorrectly. Right now we do have Oct 24th available. If you wouldnt mind, send me an email and I can get you the forms that I will need filled out to reserve the room.

Hi Jane!  Um, I hope this is ok to post, but I attended a cycling sis workshop at Blackstone Bikes in 2007, and snapped a photo of you showing us how to repair a flat.  Well, anyway, I submitted the photo last year to the APBA, the Association of Pedistrian and Bicycle Professionals, and the photo has won a contest and will be featured on some of their pamphlets and such.  Just wanted to give you a chance to tell me otherwise.  Thanks for all that you do, Suzanne
