CoVID-19: Kids Scared, Frustrated At School Amid Surge | Omicron Symptoms | Saturday: Donate Used Bikes For Kids |

 My Friday email was so cumbersome that when I finished last night's post, I still had a ton of unread email, so after getting through them all, I am sharing some of the more interesting reads. But I especially wanted to share that there's a bike donation thing happening at 5 regional Trek shops on Saturday from 10am-3pm. If you have used kids bikes that your kids have outgrown, in any condition, you can drop them off, they'll be serviced and refurbished, and then donated to kids in need. Pretty cool. 

I also wanted to appreciate that after sending my work newsletter on Friday, I got zero responses complaining about our COVID-19 policies, but in fact asking that we get stricter and require booster shots to be considered "fully vaccinated." I would love to set that kind of restriction universally, but it's just not realistic or feasible at this time, though San Diego has a pretty good booster rate, it's not enough yet.

And let's be honest, I'll use any excuse to post more pictures of a sea lion because it's still on the brain. I reached out to Sea World's media department to ask for updates on the 94-crossing sea lion's condition, so we'll see if they respond. 

Stay safe out there.
