This week, our thoughts turn to travel. The car. The bicycle. The pogo stick
All noble and historic forms of transportation. But it’s the 21st century now.
So we ask, can’t we find a better way to get around? You tell me.
Leave your name in your answer, and we’ll link back to you next week. But do it before 27 Sept, because that’s when this one ends.

And until next time, enjoy this. Eddie Izzard’s bit about the Death Star cafeteria.
If you haven’t seen this before, you’re in for a treat. If you have seen it, then you know it will be fun to watch again!

Ok, I’m finishing this up at 0055 EST. Because sometimes WP likes to eat the posts.
So I hope y’all have a fun weekend, a great week, and I’ll see you when I see you.
