Yes, car pools ARE great. Cars are great, who can deny that. In Bristol there are now lanes dedicated to sharers in peak hours. Its a great idea (how it works in practise I'm not sure).

I like what Vera said about not looking back but looking forward to a new and improved idyl of a world. Technology is great and I don't think being green means less =jobs (infact it was the industrial revolution that did away with jobs lol) but I believe that the key is to find the right balance of what we can do and what scientists and industry need to do to help.

Verablue, bless you for this thread, getting all of thinking....and of course you can have a go with my horse and cart WHEN I get one, lol. (Does that mean you are coming over in the future?).

We have two. Paul's truck and my Impala.
We live over 8 miles from the nearest bus stop...
so both are used a lot. We do car pool to work sometimes...but it's hard because I
have to be there between 7 and 8 but Paul doesn't have to show up until around 10:00. If we do carpool he catches the bus from my Microsoft office to his ( about 35 minutes away.)

5:20AM????? that must be the very first bus of the morning.

i'm way too lazy to get up that early. i usually catch the 7:15, which swings by mockingbird lane around 7:30-ish.

one of these mornings, i'm gonna catch that early bus just to meet you.

the 5:20 is the first bus. By 7:30 I've already overseen breakfast, made two soups, one chili and am well into entree...

But, if you ever do decide to ride my bus, you have to let me know.

It's easily removed of course

Ok where is that basket pacanis???? Is it that groovey thing that mounts nicely on the back of your COOL bike? You absolutely can not look like a dork on that even with the basket.

I'm thinking bicycle.... with the little bell and goofy lookin wire baskets!!!! Heck, maybe I can put some cards in my spokes and really dude it up!
