Link Twelve Tribes, the Commonwealth of Israel remote url Link 2003-07-07 2006-02-09
  This is a spiritual communal community to watch. They have communities all around the world with over 2,000 members. Most of us will not accept some of their views (anti-gay; "we are the only chosen ones" ideology; corporal punishment of children; women submit to male authority) but their success and growth has lessons we can learn from... In particular, perhaps, the importance of authority, leadership, and vision. Don't forget to check out "twelvetribes-ex.org":http://www.twelvetribes-ex.org/ as well. The twelve tribes seem to be well-run and well publicized. Here's a "story of my encounter with them on the Washington DC mall":../12tstory/.

Link Reynolds Weld Labs remote url Link 2003-06-23 2008-03-04
  Purveyor of my current cycle: the Wishbone RT. The new T-bone looks like it addresses the boom flex issue of the RT. Comfortable, fast, durable, light. I do get toe numbness, and wimpy arms, but as recumbents go, it's one of the lowest you can get that is US made. I've ridden mine in San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, Monaco, Geneva, Paris, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, New York City, Washington DC. Long rides: SF to San Diego; San Remo, Italy to Malmo Sweden; New York City to Washington DC. If I were getting a bike now, I'd get a Thys Rowing bike. Though I suppose I'd prefer to row, walk, or swim than cycle on roads with cars. Pictures of me on /near the bike in: o "College Heights, San Diego, June 2001":http://experienceart.org/cleath/images/2001-06-07-recumbent_1.jpg/view. I now wear dark shorts, and light shirt. o "Earthaven, NC, September, 2003":../ehhouseclose/view o "Earthaven, NC, September, 2003":../ehhousefar/view o "Gay Hill Texas, October 11, 2003":../colinGayHill/view o "Laguna San Marcos, Mexico, November 1, 2003 (resting)":../colinLagunaSanMarcosRest/view o "Laguna San Marcos, Mexico, November 1, 2003 (with sign)":../colinLagunaSanMarcosSign/view Note that the last I've ridden that thing was Earthday 2004 to get to Balboa Park (San Diego) and back... Now I go by foot. It is easier to find pleasant places to sleep and to walk away from traffic that way. and here's Google on "Reynolds Weld Labs":http://www.google.com/search?q=reynolds+weld+labs.
