Some Miscellaneous Items...

Great profile article in the Post and Courier of Tom Bradford, acting director of  Charleston Moves which is a local advocacy group for bicyclists here in Charleston.

Charleston's Green Fair is on September 26th.

It's official! Meteorologist Bill Walsh  WCSC Channel 5 meteorologist and the NOAA confirmed this summer was the warmest summer in recorded history here in Charleston. No big surprise to those of us who walk, ride bicycles, or work outside. We had a bit of a break in the temp and humidity over the last couple of weeks but the humidity seems to have returned. Lower high temps are being predicted later in the week. Meanwhile it's time to look ahead to the winter months. Last winter was colder than normal, with an unusual snow storm. Time to look at cold weather gear to prep for another winter of bus-hopping around Charleston!

Our local Farmer's Markets are still open, we should be seeing some fall produce before long.

While this blog is primarily to promote/discuss the benefits and difficulties of public transportation in Charleston, I also like to promote local businesses and events. Occasionally I may also promote or highlight people I know....for example I plan to post a book review on "Love at Last Sight" written by my former Pastor Kerry Shook in Texas...once I get my free copy that is!

I would like to thank Lowcountry Bloggers for adding me to their big blogroll!

Kudos to Northwood Baptist Church for raising money to assist AC Corcoran Elementary School with awnings to their portable units. The Hope for Students fundraiser featured five local christian bands and raised $2500 on 9/11/10. Way to go!
