I got that email too. Damn shame. Once you get outfitted with gear it does not need to be replaced all the time. Not like Blake's bikes.

I can appreciate that! 24 years as a science teacher, this year due to "budget" cuts I had to teach a writing class. Last language arts class I had I was 19 years old! Just turned 49 weds. After a month of teaching, the lead teacher told me I was doing it all wrong. I needed to do it her way. I stuck with what I was comfortable with, we concentrated on vocabulary, sentence structure and spelling. Diagrammed sentences and all the old school stuff that worked for me. On the district writing test they all scored at least a proficient, with 6 of the 18 advanced! They just finished their TCAP tests this week, they all said they thought they did well. I will stick with old school! But next year I do not have to teach it!Now, including spring break and weekends, 61 days until vacation! Can anyone say Dino ride time!

I'm guessing you'd get into trouble wearing that to class?
Some wouldn't get the difference.

Dino Ride

I considered it last Friday. I rode over into UT on 318 and it was really a nice day.

It was 71 in Browns Park and there was no snow down in the bottoms along the Green. I even swatted a couple of flies!

I'd bet that the Bench Road was rideable then, although it's been snowing most of the day over here.

It won't be long now!

Happy Birthday Norm! Love that "Jethro" coffee cup.

We rode it the same weekend. I got done with school at 4, and people started showing up at 4:30ish. This year I am done on the 23rd at 3:40 pm! Then it is six left!

I have a couple of things to confirm - but it'll most likely be the weekend of the 27th. - i.e. 23rd through 27th or 24th through 27th.
