Cyclists, presidential and chocolate ganache tart

- A sign of the times - a few workers in this office building in midtown Atlanta bicycle in. I've seen more and more of this lately with rising fuel prices. Just last week at different times - two women in business attire on motor scooters.

- A coworker gives birth to a 9.1 pound baby boy and gives him a rather grand name containing three names of former presidents of the United States, including his already Presidential last name.

- An individual dark chocolate ganache tart containing a surprise center - a fresh strawberry. Cheers to client Jenn's birthday and whoever made those for her.

My sister-in-law named all her children after presidents. :) Chocolate and strawberry, yum.

Granny Annie said...

So is the child "Jimmy Bill Barack Johnson" or "George-George Ronald Ford"?

You had me from "chocolate ganache tart".

Motor scooters are definitely the way to go if you can't do a bicycle.

happygirl -

It was yum. :)

Granny Annie -

She probably wouldn't want me to post her baby's name, but all three names came from presidents who took office prior to 1850. :) It was purely unintentional on her part - when I remarked upon the name when she announced it a few months ago, she said one of her friends said the same thing - a presidential sounding name.

One woman was in the pouring rain one day, wearing a slicker over a business suit and high heels - riding a Vespa.

Yay for the cyclists!!

I bike into work about 2/3 of the time during the summer - it's great exercise!! (and...I've just got in from a 10 mile ride this morning!)

That tart sounds divine!

TALON said...

Yummy on the tart! And it sounds like that baby has a lot to live up to :)

It's great to see the bikes though I'd be scared to bike in heavy traffic - people don't seem to respect bikers at all!

I need money for a new bike. Scooters are a bit expensive to buy here. I would too- not great in the rain or snow tho-
Hope the baby thrives n lives up to his important name!
ooo I want some chocolate- Lucky you!

Lance -

I think you're an exercise machine! I am impressed about the 10 miles.

Mama Zen -

Two bites of divine-ness. :)

Talon -

That area is particularly congested with traffic - maybe that's why there aren't more.

Cloudia -

Hawaii would be a wonderful place for that, I would think.

Riot Kitty -


Snaggle -

The baby has two great parents, so I'm sure he will thrive.

How did I miss this? Fellow bicyclists!

That's right - I had forgotten that you bike now.
