I cooked a lot more when I was still RVing. Living full time here in La Mesa CA, close to my favorite restaurants, it's a strong temptation to eat out.
That's a pic of sweet David next to my plate. Miss him! Yes, I have another kid. We have a challenged relationship. But I still have hopes that one day........

New bike battery
Tomorrow FedEX is delivering to me a present! A new bike battery!
My Prodeco Tech electric bike was engineered for a 9Amp Hour-LiFEP04 lithium ion battery. And for about two years, my 9Ah worked OK. But batteries do not last forever. I had my 9Ah battery capacity tested when it was two years old because it was getting discharged faster and faster.
I came to the conclusion from my experience with my bike's battery, that 9Ah was under engineered. So, when I phoned Prodeco Tech to order a replacement, I ordered a 12Ah battery instead. The 9Ah costs $399. The 12Ah costs $499.
For $100 more, I am gambling that I will have a zippier and farther-traveling bike for the next 5 years!
Rosalie views Dora 100 year tribute video
At the Guava Gardens Christmas Party, I asked Rosalie if she would like to see the YouTube video of Dora's 100th birthday tribute. She told me, "You bet ah wanna see da video!" Rosalie has lived in the United States for over 50 years and still has a thick Sicilian accent that I adore.
I went over to Rosalie's apartment this evening to show her the video. Afterwards. Rosalie told me of the events of her life that led her to live in Guava Gardens. Rosalie and I have gotten to be good friends. Not boy-girl friends. We are friend, friends.
Rosalie does not get out of her apartment much. Her eyes are not good for sight seeing. But she still likes to go out! I asked Rosalie if she would like to go out to lunch with me some afternoon. She told me, "Yes!"
Pretty neat, huh? :)
Dora and Rosalie out for lunch
(I am taking this pic)
The pic above of Dora and Rosalie was taken about 6-weeks before Dora passed on at age 104.
