    Jonathan began riding Vespas in 1983. Since then a wide variety of stylish transportation has taken him in a big full circle all the way back to riding Vespas in the San Francisco Bay Area. This time it is a veteran software developer's means of getting out of the city, with the wife to the beach (in shortest time), to and from the office downtown (in shortest time).

Weather Maps lets you view real time weather information on a map. This can provide some very interesting information, particularly in areas with microclimates, such as San Francisco.

Each temperature tag bubble sports a tail indicating wind direction and, like eighth- and sixteenth-notes in music, wind speed.
