The Aldi chain does that. You get your quarter back when you return the cart to the corral, that way they don't have to pay someone to go out and retrieve carts from the parking lot.

Yes I have to put a pound in then I get it back when I put the trolley back but a lot of the time I need that pound for shopping so I dont bother getting one, just use a basket instead.

Its to stop people taking the trolleys home with them or taking them half way and dumping them everywhere.

I should have the originals (digital) soon... this was a picture of one of the prints so has some reflections.

My friend came out to the frame shop one afternoon when I was building up the fork for my P20 and I did not even realize he was taking pictures and he took a lot of great shots that day.

It's my favorite time of year in FL.
My dad and I decided to try and get a beehive going this fall, he built this little hive up and so far they seem to be doing good. Looks like the queen took to her new home well


Fishing is great this month


Vegetables are coming in nicely

My dog Jasper loves to cool air

and of course the bike riding is nice too

Cool pics of bees, veggies, dog & Rockhopper.

At first I thought you had put a wreath of flowers around the Rockhopper seatpost.

I expect the bees are liking those blooms.

Nice.

Here's the "observation hive" my dad built this summer. He has a larger one from which he'll collect honey. He'll leave the honey in this one alone as that's what will keep the bees through the winter there in western Kentucky. After about May there's not enough flowering plants around naturally to sustain them, so my mom gives them simple syrup daily. They're planting some flowering bushes for next year.
