New breakfast and lunch place--First Watch

Always on the watch for new breakfast places in our area led me last week to First Watch.  It is located across from the Ale House off Dobbin Road in Columbia.  This is the first location in Howard County for this chain.

     It is open from 7 am to 2 pm for breakfast and lunch

   Their lemon ricotta pancakes were different with the lemon curd spooned on the top.

    The Rainbow Fruit Toast was a nice item with a thick piece of sweet bread, yogurt, fruit and nuts.

Collusion in public takes chutzpah

   So you meet with Putin with no Secretary of State, Director of the CIA or National Security Director.  Just you and a translator or two.  Smells like collusion to me.  Sounds like you only feel comfortable to meet this way to find out what you have to do next to prevent Putin releasing the information he has been using to blackmail you.  You really think that Trump wouldn't sell out our Country to protect himself?   When Russians look to compromise a person they look at someone who is in financial trouble.  This is where they started to compromise Trump in the 1980's when the banks wouldn't finance his buildings because of his bankruptcies and he seems to have turned to Russians interested in places to launder their dirty money.   Just take it from the mouth of Eric Trump  There is a strong possibility that Trump laundered Russian billionaire money. 
    So are you still surprised about the private meeting with Trump's Russian handler Putin?

      Trump fingered the wrong person who stopped more aggressive responses to the Russian hacking before the election.

Bicycle Heaven in Pittsburgh

     Having finished the bike ride into Pittsburgh on the Great Allegheny Path recently, our bike group visited Bicycle Heaven a combination bike store and museum.  The old bikes from the past made for an interesting experience.

There were bikes everywhere you looked!

   It was fun to remember how many bikes of the 1950's were made to resemble the cars of that time.

           Remember the banana seats?

Girls had pink bikes.  I don't remember blue ones for boys.

Parade bike!

These are "commuter bikes" that covered all the parts that would get your clothes dirty.  They are now priced each at $48,000 because of their rarity.
