THE GRIDLOCKSMITH, traffic safety activist, "Roads Scholar," former "Road Warrior" who lost a brother (aged,15) on the road in 1969, has compiled many observations and ideas about traffic safety after 3 decades of driving for a living. "Are you part of the problem, or part of the solution? Set a safe example in traffic." You, too, can be a gridlocksmith. "Road-Peace is a step toward World Peace." - Earl Shoop

Looking for what's logical, efficient, kind and fun... Traffic safety became a personal issue when my youngest brother died on the highway. I observed traffic unsafety while driving for a living(30yrs). Spread the word about "Road-Peace" as a step on the road to World Peace. Since those wise and gentle enough to create World Peace will not treat each other as we now do, in traffic, the road is a good place to focus our efforts. see

And just what makes one a Mother?  Kids, of course. 

Check out for some great tips on keeping the kids safe. Highly recommended.

We are spending time with our daughter and son-in-law, who are expecting our first grand-daughter, soon. (Due next Friday, the thirteenth - hey, I never understood that "Friday the thirteenth" stuff - at least it is a Friday... Monday the thirteenth has to be worse.)
