Bicyclist hit by car
By Rob Scott The Daily Item MILTON -- A 22-year-old man suffered a severe spinal injury when he was struck by a car while riding his bicycle along Route 405 at 4:15 p.m. Sunday, authorities said. Adam Kahler, of Millmont, was riding his bike south near Robbins Marine in West Chillisquaque Township, Northumberland County, along with 19-year-old Jeffrey Salvitti and 21-year-old Michael Chauner, both of West Chester, when he was struck by Betty Hackenberg, 82, of Winfield, while she was driving south in her Chrysler Cirrus, according to state police at Milton. The collision forced Mr. Kahler's bike to strike Mr. Salvitti and Mr. Chauner, a report said. A helicopter landed in a nearby parking lot and took Mr. Kahler to Geisinger Medical Center, Danville. His condition was unavailable Sunday night. Mr. Salvitti and Mr. Chauner suffered minor injuries and were not taken to a hospital. Ms. Hackenberg was uninjured. State police were assisted at the scene by the Milton Fire Department. Traffic had to be directed around the scene of the accident for several minutes while officers gathered information. The accident is still under investigation, police said.

These lovely MENTAL hats caught our attention. Last weekend we decided we need some sort of bike helmet cover for the NYC 5 Boro ride or even the Fanny Brrr Polar Ride at the crack of 2008. There are MENTAL HATS which are ski or multi helmet covers. I really like the ones that you can bend different ways.
We made our way to the Headquarters of Mr Sticky for lunch and dessert. One of their sticky buns is a necessity at the local fairs where we live. The temptation was there to get a half dozen to take home. We were good and split ONE!

There are some really dumb people in this world...I EAT DUMB PEOPLE...stop & observe!
I often wonder how life would have been if.....
What do I want to be when I grow up?
Looking forward to whatever Twisteruterus has up her sleeve next week when her friends come to town.
I hope I don't break down at work like last month..I get beat to a piece of orange pulp.
I wish there was an endless stream of money so I could donate, volunteer, travel and do whatever my heart would desire on a given day.
