Motorcycle Safety

Motorcycle season is upon us please be mindful of the bikers on the roads. When you hear them stay where you are and they will move around you.  Every year many bikers are killed some as a result of their own error, some accidental, but many because drivers fail to see them.  My sweetie is a rider and last year he attended quite a few memorial rides for a fellow motorcyclist who went down and well... never came home.  I must keep my biker safe, this one is ALL ME!

What will you leave behind?

Today I attended the memorial service for Mr. Paul S. Devrouax Jr. he was a principal in Devrouax & Purnell, one of Washington's largest black-owned architecture firms. He and his partner, Marshall Purnell, designed the Frank D. Reeves Municipal Center, the first major building to rise on U Street in decades. It was at the vanguard of an entire neighborhood's revival... For more than 30 years, Paul S. Devrouax Jr. helped weave the urban fabric of Washington. He and his firm worked on some of the region's largest and most significant buildings, including the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, the Pepco building, what is now Verizon Center and the Freddie Mac headquarters in McLean. Along with HOK Sport of Kansas City, Devrouax & Purnell designed Washington's Nationals Park, which opened in 2008.
