Hey, how ya'll like my new header picture?

It's 4 pictures I stitched together. I took it on my ride up at Rocky Ridge on Sunday. It is from the northern overlook looking north. If you look very carefully, you can see Three Mile Island cooling towers to the right of the powerline support. I have a few more on my Flickr account.

I was planning on a road ride on Monday but since it started raining just about the same time I was ready to go out........I had to hit the "No" buzzer and pack it in for another time. Yea, I'm a fair weather rider- sue me. I don't like getting wet and I'll only ride in the cold if it's a big social ride so I can share the misery.

And now for something completly different. I'm sure it it's fun to ride, but not in traffic.........could you imagine having a few beers and then hopping on? Not me.

People like this scare the crap out of me. Since I live in Pennsylvania-there are plenty of them.

Unfortunately Mitch Hedberg ain't around anymore, too bad-he was funny as hell.

I'm not sure what this is all about, I'm one of these. Except I'm really shitty with tools.

Another religious joke........

How many Christians does it take to change a light bulb?

Charismatic : Only 1
Hands are already in the air.

Pentecostal : 10
One to change the bulb, and nine to pray against the spirit of darkness.

Presbyterians : None
Lights will go on and off at predestined times.

Roman Catholic : None
Candles only.

Baptists : At least 15.
One to change the light bulb, and three committees to approve the change and decide who brings the potato salad and fried chicken

Episcopalians: 3
One to call the electrician, one to mix the drinks and one to talk about how much better the old one was.

Mormons : 7
One man to change the bulb, and six wives to tell him how to do it.

Unitarians :
We choose not to make a statement either in favour of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, then you are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your light bulb for the next Sunday service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, fluorescent, 3-way, long-life and tinted, all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence.

Methodists : Undetermined

Whether your light is bright, dull, or completely out, you are loved. You can be a light bulb, turnip bulb, or tulip bulb. Bring a bulb of your choice to the Sunday lighting service and a covered dish to pass.

Nazarene : 6
One woman to replace the bulb while five men review church lighting policy.

Lutherans: None
Lutherans don't believe in change.

What's a light bulb?

Hey, don't blame me, I didn't write it-I just stole it and posted here.

Just started experimenting around with Bit Torrent, I downloaded a couple of TV shows I missed this summer.............pretty cool stuff. If my computer had a DVD burner, I could burn stuff to a DVD and go watch it on TV instead of my computer. I no expert at it but it can't be rocket science if I figured it out..............just look around on Google, you'll find everything you need if you're interested. I guess you could also download just about any song or piece of software written if you can find at least one seeder, but I suppose we won't get into that right now.......

This is well done video concerning Critical Mass. For those of you that live around here in York, do you think something like this would go down? I would like to say it would be successful, but I have my doubts. I don't really think that many riders here would be interested in trying it. I'd sure like someone to prove me wrong though.....

I read a lot of cycling related stuff. Mostly magazines and good books on the history of cycling when they are published. I usually only run into this problem with some of the British magazines but sometimes they will print the text of an article over a picture and it's hard as hell to read........thing is, the British mags are far and away better then 90% of the stuff written here in the USA. Dirt Rag rules. I guess I better get better bifocals.

Pussy Wagon. Get your mind out of the gutter already,huh?

Thanks for reading.

re: sideways bike

I've seen that guy around town a lot, and it doesn't really look all that comfortable. It looks more awkward than anything else. But I guess looks can be deceiving.

I want to get one of those suckers and pedal it past bars as they're closing down and drunks are coming out, just to see 'em look at their friends and say, "Holy shit, I'm drunker than I thought! YOU drive."
