Jeff Frishof, Golden Gate HOG director, presented a $1,000 check to Glynis Carreira, the medical center’s volunteer coordinator, along with a separate $100 check donated by one of the HOG members. During the last 25 years, the Harley Owners Group has donated more than 20,000 toys and more than $15,000 to the medical center. In turn, Frishof received a proclamation from the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors in behalf of the Golden Gate Chapter Harley Owners Group, which was honored for its 25 years of generosity to the children of San Mateo County.

Uh, about that last one? Sorry, but that’s a myth. Camels have humps, and they can go for a long time without drinking, but the hump does not contain water. Camels are able to fight off dehydration because their red blood cells are oval-shaped instead of round, and their kidneys and intestines are so efficient that every bit of moisture is used by the body. That’s way it goes sometimes. We grow up believing things that turn out not to be true. I asked readers to send in some of their beliefs about animals and insects, then I put them to the test. Myth or reality? Here are some of my favorites.
