I hear you on kids and bikes. Not sure if I'd let my daughter ride a dirt bike. Although I have to admit, I'd prefer her riding dirt bikes over ATVs. Injuries may be more common with a bike, but it seems around here ATVs kill 1000% more people than bikes and snowmobiles combined.

Around here everybody seems to have either an ATV or snowmobile or both.
Seeing them always leaves me unsettled but better to learn young while you have some control because its happening regardless.

And three wheelers are killers but you don't hear about them as much. My nephew who was like a son to me and worked with me for 22 years was killed on one when the rear wheels locked, threw him over the handle bars and the machine fell on top of him, the handle bars went threw his head.

Sorry to hear that Jim. As usual, it isn't falling off that is the problem, it is when the machine lands on you that the real damage occurs.

Creeper, happy to see the little guy wearing boots.

Sorry to sidetrack the thread.

On a much happier note. Its Fat Tuesday, aka Shrove Tuesday, aka pancake day, aka Mardi Gras

Pancakes for 150 and a mini parade

Ahh yes, daughter was having pancakes at school today.

What a comedy of errors!!!

That line of griddles that you see did not last. Our little country school is over 100 years old.
We kept tripping the electrical panel. We each took a griddle and scattered. I was flipping pancakes in the office then moved to the grade 1 classroom and ended up in the kindergarten room

Plus we follow a strict nutrional guideline so all the batter was homemade on the spot...blenders for homemade smoothies and mixers for batters whiring all over the place.
