Lunging rottweiler

Tuesday, March 27th, 2007

What a day for a ride! It was just under 60° on the way to Presbytery, and around 65° on the way back. Negligible winds too. Oh, and relatively sunny as well. I took the long way in both directions. Leaving here I head downtown, pick up the Riverway south to Genesee Valley Park, where […]

Bad news, good news

Monday, March 26th, 2007

What a roller coaster of an afternoon. First, it was raining with embedded thunderstorms. The splat of raindrops and the hiss of tires on the road probably explains why I was oblivious to what happened next. I had an appointment at Full Moon Vista to have Yellow Bike worked on and to get my new […]

Week in review

Sometimes life gets in the way of posting things here. Long time readers know it takes me an agonizingly long time to turn out an entry between my dyslexic poor typing and ADD. There’s no such thing as dashing off a quick entry for me. So when life gets busy, entries stop. Snow tires off, […]

He told me about you, because I said that anyone who rode in the Rochester winters was really dedicated. Then I reviewed your [bike]journal. You, sir, are more than dedicated, you are demonstrating what it […]

Will someone please explain to me how energy is saved by moving the hands of a clock. And if moving a clock’s hour hand 30° saves X amount of energy, why don’t we move them 60° and save 2X of energy? Or would that collapse the oil economy? The silliness of this whole idea of […]

Thinking of summer

Tuesday, March 6th, 2007

Winter’s back again and this time, I’m feeling it. I’ve spent the last few days holed-up in the apartment wanting to be anywhere but here, yet not wanting to go outside to do it. Fortunately, it’s supposed to get almost to freezing tomorrow and the wind finally quit today. It’s still in the single-digits tonight […]
