Thank you Copenhagen Girls on Bikes!

What more can I say, other than, I am madly in love with you and want to bear all your children.  If it is possible to be in love with a blog, that is.  

A great big thank you to the lovely and uber-stylish people at copenhagen girls on bikes for posting my submission.  If I can't make it there in person, a photo will surely do!  Hello to all the new visitors that have found my humble little blog because of them.  I hope that you continue to visit here to follow up on my "green experiment", and in the meantime and in between time I am sure to do some very embarrassing things which I will meticulously document for your pleasure and my pain.  

Thank you all for the kind and helpful comments and emails, I know your faces not, but I like you already!

Later posts today will include a vignette on Mississippi.......mmmmmmissippi, or Sippi as I like to call it.  Because, I'm ALL about brevity.

And, because I can't include songs here, but wish I could, if you click HERE you can hear a song that I wish to be the constant soundtrack to my life...or at least until I can't bear to hear it one more time.  How was that for one really long, grammatically incorrect sentence.  Oh, Faulkner would be proud!

It's very hard to read your blog given the lack of contrast between black text and a black background. Please change something.

@anonymous: all is looking peachy here. No 'black background'. Maybe check your browser setting, maybe it's blocking scripts.

Yes, I'm sorry you're having a hard time reading it. There should be a white background.

The bike looks great. Some comments:

* Have you thought about how you're going to lock it :) In Denmark we use little bitty locks through the rear wheels that would only stop a US bicycle thief for the time it took them to pick themselves off the ground from laughing.

* In the child seat, the child will be as safe as you are. The conventional wisdom here is that that is safer than a trailer (hanging out behind you into traffic where it's less visible). Riding in the US, that means that visibility to cars is very, very important.

* You should decorate your bike basket with plastic flowers.

I have only given a little thought to securing it. I considered getting a lion to guard it while I am away from it, but with the rising cost of food and all...

Hey Jillian - you have a very bright and cheery blog here. : )

Congrats on your experiment with going green, it's the only color to be and contrary to any advice you get from certain frogs, it's quite easy being green.
