John is away for a few days after leaving post breakfast. Noms!

I love my bagels. They never taste the same at home, even if I buy them at the place I eat them. Must be the atmosphere.

I had ridden to breakfast. John drove and left town right after and I continued my usual Wednesday ride.

When I got my iPhone, I thought it would be interesting to see my daily steps. Of course, I don’t have my phone on me all the time, but it’s a good guestimate. It does not record biking and it doesn’t record any steps while I ride. However, it somehow translates my biking into floors climbed!  It’s about 1/2 a floor for every mile biked.

I did 13 miles this morning and it said about 6. Then that time at noon I did a couple flights of real stairs.  I wonder if it senses the up and down motion of pedaling and interprets it as climbing stairs? Anyway, I find that very amusing.

I did my monthly volunteer work at the Chapman Museum yesterday and they have a mini exhibit called Help Wanted: Female. It’s a look at women entering the workforce.  Here are some interesting notes:

It’s amazing how they put it right out there that women would be paid less. Of course, that still is true now, but earning less money ended up being how so many women were able to enter the workforce because companies were hiring. Interesting and still discouraging.

There’s your history lesson for the day!

    I remember my very first job out of college… I was one year younger than the guy who was also hired as an Intern. However, we started with a slightly higher salary and got slightly better raises every single year because (of course) he had a family to support and I did not. I guess in some people’s minds that still makes a difference.

    I love my iPhone but don’t usually carry it when I walk so I rely on my Fitbit for steps.

    Yay! Photos in my email again!

    The salary differences upset me … except I’ve been retired for 9 years now so what I have is what I have. I need to get over it.

    The pictures showed up in my email! Yay! 😀

    That is interesting history about women in the workplace. My grandmother used to be a transcription its at an office. I never thought about the reason so many women and girls were typists included the fact they were paid less.
