From what I have seen, we pie lovers have thick skin and a sense of humor. Bash away.

Certainly won't be anything to compare with your CO trip.

Have you bought your new pencils yet?

Yes, the pics. I still have enough pencils from last year for the time being, but that won't last. I'll be hitting the pencil store soon enough. First day quote of the day: I need Juliana Dick to report to the office immediately. I love my school.

BTW, I did ID that road cut as McAdoo. Good spot on that other fellow's part. There is some great singletrack right on top of that road cut.

There is a contractor who comes here to check the cathodic protection system, his name is Mike Hunt, no joke.

The other day the security guard announced him over the radio as "Michael Hunt coming in the gate".

So consider yourself lucky.

Yesterday was fantastic.

I mowed under threatening skies for about five hours and got a lot done. The weather was too good not to ride and I hadn't been out for a while. Still a little gray, but the forecast said nothing about rain; I'm off.

I've been riding by this poor old Gold Wing for at least seven years, it has never moved.




Yet another miraculous turtle rescue! You eyeballin' me, boy?




It's breaking up...

I took my Panasonic Lumix camera with me instead of my older Cannon, time to stop babying it and get some use out of it; I know it takes better pictures.




I like Sheds, Shacks and Shanties as much as the next guy.

Hey, I wonder where this goes?

That's the theme for most of my rides when I get a chance to go solo these days; I could only say generally where a lot of these were taken.






This pleases me...




Contrast!

In any case, they appear to have been debunked when it was found the lobbying by the FRC was being twisted to appear as though they were doing something they really weren't. If there were any substance to the whole thing, I'm confident the major media would have been all over it; but it's on the fringe.

I have a lot of trouble believing the Cathy family would advocate for the murder of other human beings and the effort to paint the US as a hotbed of murderous homosexual hate simply does not hold water.

On the other hand, I found this little tidbit during my research;

http://www.rferl.org/content/arab_st.../24508579.html

It seems the homosexual community around the world has a lot more to worry about than what my avatar looks like. Talk about (yet another) reason to get the US out of the UN...


Hey, while you're over here, check out my pics, I try to provide a little entertainment when I can. It's not all hate and discontent.
Just read more on the Uganda subject. It does appear a little spun. I am still uneasy with his views.

There are a lot of things to be uneasy about in this world, my friend.

Please consider the off-topic stuff going on here closed.

Apologies for the cross post.

Back to pics and day tripping.
