    Lots of wooly/furry caterpillars crossing the road. I lost count of how many I saw in 5 hours. Isn't it a little early for them to show up?

    Red Tail Hawk

    I was riding in Fort Ord and looked to hear a red tail Hawk screeching.

    A big screen tv. Seriously. I suppose it's better than roadkill (but there was lots of that too).

    Does walking the dog count?

    On our walks over the last few months about 400 lotto scratchers. I entered them into the "2nd chance" drawing online.

    Excellent idea! All my Christmas candy is gone. I will wait until it goes on sale, though.

    Reviving this old thread because I found something fun on a Memorial Day ride: a grand piano under the Brooklyn Bridge. I sent my photos and video to Gothamist, and it went on to become a fairly big story.

    This link appeared today in my Youtube comments -- now I know what they were shooting!

    The origins of the piano remain a mystery.

    They staged 88 pianos around NYC last year as a sort of performance art exhibit. They were all outside but not in such good condition. My guess is that this one might be one of them.

    Piano project in NY - 88 pianos scattered around the city for anyone to play, now until 6/16/13

    More here:
    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/07/ar...s-project.html

    see also the links for video and slide show.

    Pretty cool but I can't help but wonder about the rain?

    I found info about the 88 pianos when I was searching the origins of this piano (but not the NYT story -- thanks!). I didn't know about that project, but I'm fairly sure this one did not come from that source. It's on a little beach where people aren't supposed to go, and it's not painted as the 88 pianos were. Well, it wasn't painted initially -- by now it has graffiti, and someone brought the piano flowers.

    There have been news stories speculating that the piano was placed under the bridge for the video shoot -- which I assume would be illegal. The person who made the video put the Vimeo link in the comments on my Youtube video -- but then the link disappeared. Maybe he feared legal action?
