Lincoln 003-hdr…and What They Say About You

Sunken Gardens You are romantic and thoughtful. Walk slowly and stop at least once to sit on a bench or planter edge. There will be bugs; react to them with patience or indifference, unless your date likes the vulnerable, weenie type. Find an opportunity to surreptitiously snip off a flower that you can slide behind your date’s ear. Playfully pretending to push your date into the water says you are fun; actually pushing your date into the water says you take things too far.

It gets better from there. Check them all out on

I received this e-mail this morning and I figured it’s wasn’t a problem to share. Please only respond if you’re a resident of Lincoln, NE.

Dear Michael,

The Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization needs your help! We’re working to improve your transportations options in the Lincoln region. The purpose of this project is to develop strategies and programs to support individual travel choices, and encourage sustainable transportation – such as biking, walking, taking transit, and sharing rides. As a first step in this process, we’d like to better understand current interests, issues, and barriers to using sustainable modes of transportation.   

Please take a minute to complete the “community travel preference survey” by February 1st. Contact Mike Brienzo if you have any questions,  (402) 441-6369. 

Your participation is greatly appreciated!
