A Tosa resident since 1991, Christine walks the dog, cooks but avoids housework, writes and reads, and enjoys the company of friends and strangers. Her job takes her around the state, learning about people's health. A Quaker (no, they don't wear blue hats or sell oatmeal or motor oil), she has been known to stand on both sides of the political and philosophic fence at the same time, which is very uncomfortable when you think about it. She writes about pretty much whatever stops in to visit her busy mind at the moment. One reader described her as "incredibly opinionated but not judgmental." That sounds like a good thing to strive for!
Driving roundabouts is fun--if you don't get killed by some besotted soul driving the wrong way, as I nearly did tonight. Or one who gets confused and slams on the brakes for no particular reason, as seems to be happening with more, not less, frequency.
So I will help you prepare for your trip on Canal Street to the new Harley Davidson Museum (and La Fuente) this spring.
How to drive a roundabout
1. The most important rule: yield to traffic that's already in the circle if you are entering it. If you're already in it, yield to traffic on the left.
2. Get in the lane you need to be in and stay there.
3. Semis are gonna need both lanes, and they are bigger than you, so be gracious.
