On the way to STAR, or after STAR, you could ride 150 miles to Bloomington, MN and visit the Mall of America, MOA.  MOA is the largest Mall in No. America.  If you have never been there, check it out.  You can spend hours or days if you would like to see everything, from shopping, great eating places, ride simulators, a roller coaster that is so quiet when it flies above you, that you don't even notice it.  Also a log flume ride and music in the court as well as play some golf.  If you decided to stay overnight, there are two hotels connected to the Mall.


They just finished with the Super Bowl Media Spectacle Row area where all the reporters were located for the Super Bowl for over a week.  First time in history of Super Bowl that anyone and everyone was allowed to see the behind the scenes of the media people.

STAR 2018 / Lunch
« Last post by hhemstreet on Yesterday at 09:42:34 PM »
For those that would like to know what is on the menu for the Lunch Ride, it is: Pulled pork sandwich, 2 sides, cookie and drink.  Be sure to add the Lunch Ride to your registration.  The Lunch stop is only 26 miles from the hotel.  There are 4 choices of routes and lengths.  You can take your choice of routes to the Lunch Stop, with the shortest of 56 total miles or 300 miles total, and the others are in between.  More details coming in STAReview and on the forum.  Check back later.  See you in La Crosse in less than 4 months!


Carl - not sure if you are coordinating the lunch menu, but be sure to arrange for vegetarian and vegan options too. Some of us are on pretty strict diets  ;D [size=78%] [/size]

Next thing you know, many of the kids that popularized Facebook will abandon it because their parents and grandparents have started using it.

That is already happening.....the group of FB users that is seeing the greatest growth are those people that are 55 and older!  Younger people are moving to Snapchat and tinder, where their posts disappear quickly and are generally not seen by parents and other adults.

The media and politicians seem to be drawn to Twitter......opps!  Is that a political statement?  😜.   I don’t make political statements.  I live in Kentucky!  We have HONEST politicians here!  Once they are bought , they stay bought!   Vote early and vote often!   😂
Umm, I don't use it, so not sure, but from what I've heard tinder is  just a hook-up app. It's Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram that the younguns are all using. :)

This may be drifting perilously close to becoming a politic discussion.  :-(

I generally try to avoid popular abbreviations of common terms, but I happen to like po po. I just did a Google search on the term and...


Police officers that patrol certain beaches on bikes wore a vest that said PO in huge blockletters on each of their chest. which means Police Officer. they usually ride around in group of two's. When you see them coming by, you see the word "PO" "PO" when they stand next to each other.

I find that rather amusing.
Its a term I've heard used mostly by urban city youths, gang bangers and such. Hardly how I think of you:) Digging a bit more I see the info you posted on its origin, and that slang term originated with California Asian gangs. It later spread nationwide and some think it has origins with African Americans.
