Trying Hard to be Green

I've been talking about getting a Vespa for a long time--well, I finally did it. It is a used 2001 model ET4 with less than 500 miles on it. Yeah, I know--crazy. We've been a one-car household for a while now and although I really like riding the bicycle/bus/train sometimes I want something that I can run some errands and get me to/from work a little quicker.

Well, it turned out that riding the Vespa around town was such a blast that it has become my main transportation. I even took Rosie out for a 2-up ride and she loved it.

Oh yeah--the one car we settled on was a new Prius. I've heard the arguments for and against it, but for our needs it seemed to make the most sense.
