Today my Mom tagged along on my medical appointments; so some paperwork sorted out.
I celebrated a weight loss by treating for lunch at Fatburger’s.
The first stop at the Bentall Complex revealed some changes, the car washing service and handicap parking have been replaced with an electric car sharing service.
So had to park on 9 instead of the ground level. It feels insulting to have to pay to drive around to find a space and driving out again.
At the second stop, I got metre street parking right in front. woot woot.
Then, it was the hell outta dodge and away from the downtown core.
Soon to be taxis and cyclists only, as cars continue to be taxed at the pump and on property at home garage. Meanwhile, Vancouver City is competing with private business in offering ride sharing cycles.
And taking away car paid for roads for bike lanes, which pay no insurance or license fees. Often they fail to understand road violation ticket apply and they rarely get to ride away from motor vehicle accidents that they cause by failing to obey the rules of the road.
The known, the one who takes up more of the road rules, since most collisions are dead bikers evading legal responsibility and cars at blame.
The constant rain made driving conditions with lesser visibility and I was very glad that I noticed one of the tires on my vehicle was low and I stopped at a station in Surrey to re pressurize the winter tire, which can now be checked when the seasonals go on shortly.
I am not sure why I was surprised there was a coin slot on the tire air machine, the car wash vacuums had have it.
Anyway, the machine was crappy and did not hold a seal, but I got it from only 15 ppsi to at least 33, the gauge was not what one could call accurate.
I joked to my Mom that I felt butch again.
I drove the illegally tolled port mann crossing both ways.
The Patullo needs to be addressed and they need to ban the commercial trucks that all these other roads were built for, eh.
after the weeks of snow and salt, now rain rain rain
there are many potholes big enough to break axles
and the change in temperature, affects pressure systems
even those contained in rubber tires

Rep. Steve King: what Republicans stand to lose by chastising him
Age of Reason Thomas Paine get real!
Canada’s Progressive Conservative party 10 years ago is the American Republicans this term. Imploding.
King is a repulsive racist
as opposed to the rest of the republicans?
the sad thing is the list doesn’t stop there, misogynist, anti-queer but more obsessed with buttsex than out gays and the anti-science most genocidal-y of all.
I forgot the anti-arts, because they are just that literal – lack of humor being the key to their mental illness; which connects back to sexual minorities and other non conformity
‘He did not stop at threats’: Dutch court sentences man also linked to Amanda Todd extortion case
Globe editorial: The troubling case of Don Meredith, and senators who just won’t quit: By any objective measure, it’s a bit of an understatement to say that Senator Don Meredith behaved badly when he began pursuing a teenage girl when she was 16, and eventually had sexual intercourse with her just before and after her 18th birthday.

In the age of Trump, there is no shame or morality anymore. These guys think they can do anything they want with impunity. Sickening.
Entitlement is addictive and Predators do not understand the concept of wrong
- and we know, the more pure in public, the bigger the perv in private, it’s a permission thing, see also entitlement:
