Stop Signs Could Be Replaced By Yields

There is a large STOP sign for traffic exiting the Entomology Station. The smaller stop signs on the Rec Path could be replaced with Yield signs, since the bikes, runners, and pedestrians are the higher volume of traffic, and the exiting cars have to stop before entering Spear Street turning right or left. Traffic entering the Entomology Station have good views of approaching bikes and runners on the path.

I saw a bike heading south (downhill from the left) when I was taking this photo. He pulled to his left to get a look around the corner and to be seen, slowed, and then rolled through the small stop sign when he saw that the intersection was clear. This behavior seems appropriate and would be recognized as legitimate if we put small yield signs for the path users,

Jiri's Photos from Brazil

Son Shadow

This kid's family was playing music at the Art Hop behind the Steele Building where Local Motion has the Trailside Center. His dad played fiddle and also put out the food. I really liked how his shadow played against the rich color of the late afternoon sun on the wall.

Fresh Ground Coffee House

The Fresh Ground used to offer a Beggar's Banquet -- soup and a slice of fresh baked bread -- for $1. They also had Apple Incredible Cake. Linda still has the recipe. (Citation: Vermont Vanguard. Guess at the date. They went out of print in 1984.

The store is now a pizza shop:

Hat Trick

Can you find the teapot?
Carolyn, Linda's sister, knitted some tea cozies and a winter hat for me. We set them all out and you get to guess which one hides the teapot.
