There are many planned events at the Rainbow Center that have been canceled because of the continuing cold wave of - 4 air temperature and - 3 wind chill.
Tuesday, December 26, 2017
It is better to close the Rainbow Center and keep senior citizens and center employees safe at their homes and apartments, rather than to risk their health going out in such cold weather.

This part of the Lakewalk was hit hard, washing away the wooden deck, which I expected from a powerful storm. But the concrete foundation strengthened with reinforcing bar for the deck was also washed away, which I didn’t expect.
A different view of the same ruined foundation. I am amazed at how much force it took to bend the reinforcing bar like that.
Image was taken looking towards the Aerial Lift Bridge, with another Road Closed sign in the foreground.

This is what was a wooden platform and concrete footing for an interpretive sign.
This is a closer look at the power of moving water. Please notice the striped patterns created on the deck support beams, made by sunlight shining through the deck boards.
The sturdy metal sign, constructed to resist mindless vandalism and metal theft as it was in the winter of 2014. You never know when a photo you took years ago will become useful to you.

A strong October 2017 storm ripped up the boardwalk and covered the bicycle trail with sand and rocks.
I suppose the city doesn’t have “sidewalk closed” signs available.
This sign is nowhere near an actual road.

The streak of light is the Pier B Resort’s Christmas wagon towed by a tractor.
The Biggest Christmas tree I have ever seen with my own eyes!
Nice reflections on a Bentleyville micro-truck back window.

Here is my proposed bypass that would save the Munger Landing to Steelton route for future generations, while bypassing any of the toxic cleanups in and around Mud Lake. In the future, this route could add variety for Lake Superior & Mississippi riders, as their train could use the lakeside, Mud Lake route southbound, and then take the inland, Steelton route northbound.

Linda Erdahl had her support staff at her office make really nice color, 11 x 17" laminated posters - 4 copies. The dates can be written on it each month with a dry erase marker. She gave my club a marker for adding new dates each month.
I ran out of black ink in my printer. So, I had handwritten this poster for the King Manor Buy a Basket Co-Op.

This is a heart-healthy fruit basket.
This is a heart-healthy vegetable basket.
Here are the photos that illustrate what five dollars per basket can buy in 2017 dollars.

This is a very good meal for one dollar!
And now, here is a photograph with the fork on the left side of the plate, for my left-handed audience.
The only thing that I can think of that would make this meal even better would be to eat it while watching a new episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic! But, I must wait several more months to watch the start of season eight of Hasbro’s greatest cartoon!

I found this other semicircle of Kindness Rocks around the south column of the front entrance to the UMD Kirby Plaza Transit Hub.
Was creating these Kindness Rocks a class project or a club project?
I’m amazed that the smaller things in life often have the biggest ability to improve the quality of your life.
One of my favorite quotes, not shown here, is “You don't have to be perfect to be amazing.”

I found this semicircle of Kindness Rocks around the north column of the front entrance to the UMD Kirby Plaza Transit Hub.
This entrance is located between the Street Level Stores and the Food Court.
Someone must love tacos to place their love for these crisp fried corn tortillas upon their Kindness Rock.
Here is the address to the “The Kindness Rocks Project”, http://thekindnessrocksproject.com/
