Today is a bit of a ROSEville potpourri. First off, did you get a chance to read my Pokemon Go post last week? I sure had fun writing it! AND I have three interesting updates to it!
1. Pokemon Go Has Lost Over Twenty Percent of Its U.S. Userbase! Of course, there are still plenty of people using it and the creators, Niantics and Nintendo are most likely still making quite a bit of money. But still, rather intriguing.
2. While at a neighborhood meeting at one of the Martha Riley Library rooms at Mahany Park, we had a good view of several people Pokemon Go-ing around our room again. BUT there were considerably fewer than the last time. I’m not sure if that’s because most people have already caught the Pokemon critters there, there are fewer peep in Roseville playing, or what.
3. As we sat in the meeting, I kept hearing creaking above us – almost like someone was crawling around on the roof. When I left, I spotted a couple of teens playing so I asked if there were ever Pokemon critters ON the roof at various places. “Sure are,” they replied. “Does anyone go up on the roof to capture them,” I asked. “Yup, we have a couple of crazy friends who have!” Yikes! Parents, best to warn your kids to stay OFF roofs – due both to their safety as well as any liability they might incur (that would most likely come back and bite you) by accidentally damaging something up on the roof! 😉
Sacramento International Airport
Second today are some tips about the Sacramento International Airport. Last week I headed out there to take a loved one to her flight back home. I hadn’t been out that way in months so I was surprised (tho don’t know why since I do know that road work does take a LONG time) to realize the i80 is still divided with the slow lane separated from the other two faster lanes. I couldn’t remember if there was an option to exit for the airport (there was) from the faster two lanes. (They don’t have off ramps for several of the exits.). I decided to play it safe and stay in the first lane and oyyyyy, there was a traffic accident that brought just our lane to a standstill. It was cleared off quickly so we were only stuck at stop and go for about 20 minutes. And since I always make sure we head to the airport plenty early for just that reason we were ok! Still, it definitely added stress to the trip! All’s well that ended well, though, and we got there right on time. We even had time to enjoy a lovely lunch together at the tables on the 5th floor with the Panera salads we had brought with us. (My current fave is their Strawberry and Poppyseed Salad! It’s SOOOO good relatively low in calories! Makes it easy to have an enjoyable lunch out and stick to my healthy eating diet! I’m so happy since I’ve lost 35 pounds in the last 3 months with that diet. Yay!
I must say, though, I’m really glad I can take my normal route to the Sacramento International Airport for my next two trips with more loved ones. Usually, I just head West on Baseline to the 99, then go South on the 99 to the 5 North which then drops me right at the airport. Much easier, less traffic, less stress! Very cool! Gotta love the back roads and side roads in Roseville and the Greater Sacramento area, right! 🙂
