Two dozen steps from bedroom to coffee pot to office. Double that on mornings when I make a side trip through the garden.
My husband takes the Metrolink to work - 2 hours up and 2 hours back. It's really not a good way to live. We made a lot of mistakes. He should have not been so scared when laid off in 2007 and waited a few more months. He was able to get a job right after President Obama was elected, but it was up in Burbank. More positions were opening up nearer to us, but I think he panicked. People can also cause a great deal of pressure when they say insensitive things to those who are unemployed. A friend said to us, when we received an extension of Cobra benefits so we could pay our health insurance, "I wouldn't take a government 'hand-out'". So lesson here - Be gentle and understanding with people who are laid-off. (Not that this question was meant to invoke a lesson, but I threw it in, free of charge
My daily commute from home to office to and fro is 80 minutes with traffic.I use to go to my office by bike

BIG KUDOS to everyone who has responded thus far! It seems like being able to have flexibility and in a sense "call your own shots" are very positive reasons to love your job and boy, do I agree with you! It's great on a Friday (the 13th for those who cross your fingers) to hear such...

Hi all, I need to buy a bike for my daily commute of around 8 km. The bike should be light and quick as I am of small build and require a nimble bike. My budget is around 25,000. I fancy the Schwinn Sportera Comp.
