One of the problems with being a daily blogger (well close to daily) is that it is easy to forget some of the posts you’ve written. Because of that, I have been going back through my posts from the beginning. (LORD there are a lot of typos in the ones I composed using the iPad.). Some are pretty good, some are just ok.
The good news, I guess, is that I am enjoying reading them. Its fun to see what has warranted a blog post in the past. One of them involved the use of an iPod and listening to music while riding. Its kinda funny that I would read this now, since last Thursday I had an iPod epiphany! Continue reading
Have you ever been sure of something? I mean, deep down, where it matters, you are so sure you are right it’s just not feasible that you could be wrong? There are a few things that I feel that way about. For instance, just given the number of galaxies in the universe, and the number of stars in each galaxy, and the number of planets around each star, there just has to be life out there somewhere.
So, assuming you are that sure about something, ever have someone come along and give you actual data that you are right?
That happened to me today! Continue reading

This was a bit of a surprising day, after a surprising weekend. We woke up to driving rain this morning, but unusually warm. Surprising mostly due to the fact it snowed hard Saturday and was butt cold most of the weekend. But we woke to 50 degrees and serious wet!
We had heard it was going to rain, so I packed all the gortex I had for the ride home. I planned on warm and wet. What I got was the second surprise of the day. Continue reading
If you read yesterday’s post you know it was an interesting Saturday in Strohville. Snow, treacherous roads, and a fender bender all combined to make it a memorable day. Today, it rained, the roads were clear and Manchild and I headed south to home.
But as I ran around and got errands down today, I was struck by some of the other parts of the weekend. Namely the hanging out with both boys. With Math Major in college, and working, 90 miles away from us, we done see each other too often.
Manchild comes up, takes over his man cave and just enjoys relaxing and being with us. Sometimes we sit and talk others, we go hours and don’t speak. It’s home, and no need to “visit” when you are home.
This weekend, though, hanging out with them, I noticed some things… Continue reading

Well it was an interesting day… The Manchild wanted to go to a Nintendo Smash Tournament in Bellingham. This seemed like a good idea, since he would get to compete, I could visit with The Math Major who is going to school up here, and Manchild and I would have some time together.
Yep seemed like a great idea, till it snow… Continue reading
Well folks, I think its time I come clean and make a confession. Over the last year, y’all have found out many things about me. Overall I like to think I am pretty much an open book, and I am happy to give me opinion to anyone on almost anything. Yep it has gotten me in trouble a time or two, but I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t.
Today, though, I decided it was time to confess something to y’all. It’s hard to admit, but yes I have a scrap-book of myself! Continue reading
One of the things I have learned over this past year of “Racking Up” posts is that each month is its own month. And the miles you ride may or may NOT have anything to do with the month before. Schedules, weather, work and many other things can affect how often you get on the bike.
A prudent reader might think “Hmmmm, did he not do so well this month?” Well, let’s talk about that… Continue reading
