Driving, traveling 2014
(All photos ©BlueJessamine.)

I taught both of my sons to drive with an automatic. This summer I have been teaching them to drive a stick shift. The first ten times or so of them popping the clutch and the small car hopping was funny. Both have caught on pretty well. We have been using a rural area to drive in.

Driving a convertible helps both the teacher and the student.

Have you ever taught someone to drive? If so was it in an automatic or a stick shift? Did it make your nervous? ;D

Welcome to the Wednesday Coffee Hour here at Street Prophets. This is an open thread where we can talk about what’s going on in our worlds.

Everyone is welcome to discuss all topics of conversation and to post photos.

Aloha from Hawaii! My family and I are here trying to make our way home as two Hurricanes are headed towards the islands.

Hurricane Iselle continues to churn menacingly from the east, weakening as it encounters Central Pacific wind shear and cooler waters but still is expected to be capable of unleashing flash flooding, tropical storm-force winds and ocean surge starting Thursday afternoon in Hawaii.
UPDATE: The cable has gown out. The internet may be next. People are rationing water, gas and foods for a seven day supply.

Should I go silent it is because I have lost my internet.

A few photos of one of the performances we have seen:

While grocery shopping in Waikiki we came across "Lemons Zebra". They are pink on the inside.

Outside the grocery store was this cutie. He was sad while waiting for his human.

What's for dinner?! :D

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
