A quiet day planned, and the Feed

I don’t have much on the agenda today, a little plumbing and hanging around the house after I finish the blog post. Yesterday we had a nice Full Moon service, and tomorrow I do the last service of 2012 which is going to be about being prepared for change in 2013. I’m going to try to get people to make positive changes for themselves and society at large, but I’m not going to browbeat them over it. The big part of the message will be that most of the positive change that people like us can do will be because of random events, and to make those positive changes we must be prepared to take advantage of those random events. Taking advantage of random events requires some forethought. Beyond that I’m not going to say until after the service, because several of my readers also attend my church.

The only link I have today is from Jamaica. Pedal cyclist killed in crash Hit-from-behind wreck made worse by throwing the cyclist in front of a car in the oncoming lane. There is only one way this could have happened, the cyclist was taking the lane and the driver of the Honda either ignored his presence or hit the cyclist deliberately. Look at the weapon vehicle and remember that they drive on the “wrong” side of the road in Jamaica. The weapon vehicle hit the cyclist directly in front of the driver as demonstrated by the dent in the front of the car and also by the cyclist being moved to the other side of the road. There is no other mode of wreck that explains the damages and the cyclist ending up on the other side of the road. Also you can see the road in this case is quite narrow and not a safe place to pass a cyclist, especially passing a cyclist on the wrong side (passing to the left is illegal in Jamaica).

That’s all I have today. I expect to be getting the end-of-year summary from WordPress soon, so I can share what we have done on the blog. I use the “we” in this case because this is not just me, your comments and links also help make this blog work.
