Pedal Power business first: Thanks to the generosity of Barbara Lyon of Newport Beach, I was able to restore a fabulous, girl's mountain bike. It looks great and rides like new. If you know of a girl, 8 to 14 years old, who needs a bike but cannot afford one, please send me an e-mail at email@example.com. The bike is free and so is delivery anywhere in Orange County. The higher gas prices will continue to affect us all in many ways, even if you don't drive or don't really care how much you pay per gallon.
