WEST TISBURY, Mass. >> President Barack Obama says he's having a "great time as always" on vacation on Martha's Vineyard.

Obama took his wife, Michelle, and daughters Malia and Sasha on a late morning bike ride today through the Manuel F. Correllus State Forest in West Tisbury.

The president made the comment during a brief portion of the ride that the White House allowed the news media to see.

In the evening, the family went to Oak Bluffs for dinner at senior adviser Valerie Jarrett's rental home overlooking Nantucket Sound.

Oak Bluffs has fireworks Friday night.

The White House says Obama was briefed earlier in the day on the violence in Egypt by national security adviser Susan Rice, who is traveling with the president.

Obama is scheduled to return to Washington on Sunday.

For Mr. Pua taxpayer, we do laundry, got to Long's to buy toilet paper (oops sorry, only paper towel on sale this week), then get two plastic bags of food amounting to $60, used to go to COSTCO but at $120 a copy it's only for rich people with CASH, then what...mow the weeds maybe, wash the car after 3-weeks cuz water bill is a killer, go to McDonald and see ups cooking on their "$1 menu"....and then, it's Sunday..and back to work. My Federal Taxes take a huge portion of my taxes but it must go somewhere??
