“Blanche” extols the virtues of Round Rock Honey and its new online store.

“Hello beautiful people if you’re wondering why my beehive is all askew

Well I’ve been busier than a little bee.

Doing what?
Packing up this Round Rock honey and sending it to my friends all over the

Why? Because they love it!

Frankly my dear I’m exhausted!

But I heard some wonderful news today.

Do you know that Round Rock honey has one of those little
online gadgets? a dot-com!

Round Rock honey dot com.

You can open up your computer, 

type in:  Round Rock honey dot com

And you can send Round Rock honey to yourself or your friends all over the country it’s as easy as that.
I’m so excited and now Blanche can getback to doing what she does best
drinking tea on the veranda.

Sweetened by Round Rock honey of course”

Post Production was done at mattkprovideo studios in Austin, Texas.

Round Rock Honey is justly proud of it’s high quality, naturally grown and delicious Honey products.

I am so happy to be a part of letting folks know about this great product.

Shot with a Canon DSLR on a slider, and edited with Adobe Premiere.  I added the “Lumetri” effect to make the footage seem more cinematic.

The logo animation was created in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects.

I didn’t design the Round Rock Honey Logo. I traced it in Adobe Photoshop.

( How to wrap text tutorial )

I drew the honey combs using the Adobe Photoshop Pen Tool. I colored it with the paint bucket tool.

The honeycomb image was imported as a Photoshop layer into Adobe After Effects.

( Import>  Name> Import as layered sequence)

The layer was made into a “3D Space” image. Then the image was duplicated and “nudged up” one line. ( The layer was selected then the keyboard UP arrow was tapped once) Then this was repeated 150 times. ( Copy the 3D  layer, select it and move it up one line. Repeat).

The honey jar image was added and made a 3D layer.

It was duplicated and at 8 seconds in the under layer darkens and has RADIAL blur added. Then a third copy occurs above and has the Stylize / GLOW effect applied to it.  An elliptical mask moves over it.

you know you’re  a pedicabber when

You know you’re  a pedicabber when

you think agreeing to be somewhere at 11 am constitutes getting up really really early

you don’t own one pair of “mom presentable” underwear

you thought the ventriloquist guy was funny…. at first

there isn’t one spot in the 6th street alleys you haven’t peed

you often find yourself driving a car like a pedicab…. stopping for yellow lights a car could daily beat but a pedicab couldn’t.

if you see someone on a bicycle you have to stare at them to see if you know them from pedicabbing…. and a weird percentage of time…… you do…

you have the set list of the SPAZZMATICS memorized even better than they do… And you’ve been pedicabbing way too long if you can tell if its the A team Spazzmatics or B team replacements.

as much as you claim you’re broke all the time. every once in a rare while, Santa Pediclause will often leave you  a fistful of cash in random sock drawers

the impossible has happened: hot UT coeds grabbing your ass is something you want to avoid happening

you tried getting along with Roman.  Once…..

If you’re just riding your bike and see someone who looks lost , you offer them a ride…..

“On what?”

On….. oh yeah… D’ow!”

you bitch that pedicabbing isn’t as good as when you started. Whenever that was.

ok- keep it going

Pedicab hero

A Good Samaritan honored in Austin for stepping in to stop a sexual assault in progress downtown.

APD to honor vigilant pedicab driver who stopped downtown sex assault


AUSTIN – A pedicab driver, who helped stop the sexual assault of an unconscious woman and identify the suspect in the incident, will be recognized with a “Distinguished Service” citation by the Austin Police Department Thursday afternoon.

“It’s humbling, I didn’t expert any recognition,” said Palos.

During the early morning hours of May 19, 2016, Pedicab Driver Luis Palos stopped his vehicle after hearing moaning and the sound of a distressed woman near the United States Courthouse on 4th Street. There, Palos said he saw an unconscious woman being sexually assaulted by a man.

“I knew that I had to step in and help,” said Palos.

When Palos asked the man, identified by police as Said Yarrow, 19, if he knew the woman, Yarrow claimed she was his girlfriend – even though he could not tell Palos her name, Austin police said.

Original Story: APD: Pedicab driver stops sexual assault, chases suspect

When Palos offered both the suspect and a victim a ride in his pedicab, the suspect initially accepted, but later hopped out of the vehicle and began to run away.

Palos chased the suspect and requested others on the street to call 911. Police were able to find the wallet of the suspect, containing his identification card. Palos positively identified Yarrow through a photo lineup.

“I thought of my wife, and my sisters, and my mother,” said Palos.

Austin police said Palos’ efforts in the incident were crucial for police to find and arrest the suspect.

“Officers are overwhelmed, and there are many many capable people who are always willing and ready, and I would like to consider myself one of them as well,” said Palos.

The ceremony will take place during the APD Violent Crimes II Meeting in the Old Motorola Building at 2 p.m.
