Scooter Craze ~

Lighten up, just enjoy life, smile more, laugh more,
 and don't get so worked up about things...

Birds mission is to make cities more livable by 
reducing car usage, traffic, and carbon emissions.

Bird is a clean, affordable, convenient, car
reducing alternative to making cities more enjoyable. 

Bird is a dockless scooter-share company based in Santa Monica, 
California. Founded in September 2017, Bird operates electric 
scooters in over 100 cities throughout North America, Europe,
 and Asia, with 10 million rides in its first year of operation.

In 2018, Bird was named one of Time Magazine's 50 
Genius Companies, and one of the most sought-after 
startups in the United States, according to LinkedIn.

Bird Scooter together with some others (Lime) are
 super popular all over town.  People just rent them and drop 
them off in any given spot.  The other day we were at our 
brokers office, and to get into the parking Arvid actually had 
to step out of the car and move one of the scooters out of the way.  

People leave them anywhere.  Even in the middle of the streets, 
parking lots you name it.  Very convenient, but also can become 
problematic if people abuse them (like with everything).

Unfortunately there is a also a lot of vandalism
 that goes with this scooter business.  People fed up with
 the clutter of scooters all over the city have started to
 burn them, throw then into the ocean, canal or river. 
 There is some "wicked" person everywhere 
just waiting for a chance to to be wicked. 
It's life.  You take the good with the bad.  A beautiful day to all.

Good and bad ideas both come from the same
 fountain of speculation and experiment. Live life 
to the fullest, and focus on the positive..
