Lock him up

Senate Subpoenas Records from Mike Flynn's Companies 

... Flynn Intel LLC and Flynn Intel Inc ...


The way I see it: There's no legitimate reason why you would have two companies doing the same thing, with the same owner, and practically the same company name!  Unless you were doing something deceptive, immoral, or simply downright illegal.

Bike ride to the Brewery

Attempted to get to Golden State Brewery using creek trails.

Full Size | Google Maps

Involved some spots on surface streets, but most of the journey was on trails/cycleways.

Had to pass thought quite a few homeless camps on the San Jose side.

Loop around the airport could have been a bit quicker - there is an unused stretch of airport blvd that is still open to bikes, but not advertised.

Got to the brewery in 90 minutes - couple of stops and detours finding the way through Guadalupe River Park.

Unfortunately the brewery was closed when I got there. Arrived at 4:15, and according to Google they should have been open to 5pm! I can only guess they closed early for mothers' day.

Washington weed

After spending a couple of days in Seattle, I have to conclude that the state's decision to legalize marijuana was a bad move.
