You aren't as anonymous as you think.......

Just gotta say thanks to the asshole from Atlanta who put up a rather disturbing comment yesterday............. I've sent an e-mail to your ISP's abuse department. That wasn't very nice. You're not as anonymous as you think you are.

Interesting story about the dockworkers union. Where I work is non-union with the exception of 2 stores in our chain. The folks that work at those 2 stores make less money then the rest of us, so sometimes unions ain't such a good deal.

I think I have said before that people should leave Britney opinion is still pretty much the same, but you have to wonder what her publicists are thinking. I like the dark hair though...........

I like this car, if I had one, I'd have way more room in the garage for bikes.

I guess Titus ain't gonna be selling a whole lot of bikes to woman.

Nigerians sure are good wood carvers.

Checking out the voice posting........

Under construction.

Not sure where the heck my links and stuff went when I was screwing around with my template the other day but I'm working on some new stuff. At the rate I'm going, it's gonna be at least a week until I put up a new site.

As good as I am making donuts..........I'm that bad at designing templates, so it's gonna be awhile.....It's not at the top of my priority list at the moment.

I want to include a separate section for podcasts as well, so folks can click on a link and go to the homepage of some of my favorite podcasts.

I am on my summer schedule now, so that means I will be posting less because I get to go to sleep earlier in the morning. No school runs until the end of August means I can hit the sack as soon as I get home in the morning most days.

I think I'll print this article out and show it to my friends at work that smoke.

They're pissed because the smoking area was moved the whole way to the end of the parking lot. Some smokers were standing in front of our store right at the entrance lighting up and puffing away.

.............. somebody must have complained.

Not sure who would have did that....since I quit smoking over 5 years ago, I've turned into one of those "asshole" former smokers. If someone lights up near me in a public place, I don't make funny little coughing noises and act annoyed, I just ask them to put out their cigarette because its smell makes me want to puke on their shoes.

If they have a problem with me asking them to snuff out their butt, then it's asshole time.

This is our local weather map.

I live in York. We are in store for a whole bunch of rain, the flood watches are in effect. I am glad we live at the top of a hill and not the bottom of our neighborhood where it floods everytime we get huge storms.

Much respect to these folks. That is seriously cool that they are going to devote the majority of their fortunes to helping other people.

Daniel and I were out at the bike shop trying out a couple of bikes for him since he has outgrown his current ride. We were looking at the Electra Townie style of bike since it's bottom bracket is placed forward in the frame. This appeals to Dan since he can put both feet down and still keep proper leg extension.

My dad would love this style of bike, if I could ever get him to pry a few dollars loose from his wallet, he'd be digging this bike.

I don't think the "privacy" thing worked out too well. I know lots of folks like him, I think he's an overpaid buffoon.

More proof that I'm never gonna grow up. I like this commercial.

Today's science break....Earth ain't as big as you think.

1 in 100 aren't very good odds if losing means you pay with your life.

Hell might possibly freeze over.

This weekend is the July 4th weekend and that means as my role as the "crazy" uncle, I'm gonna invite all my nieces and nephews over to light off some fireworks. None of the stuff I bought goes "boom" all of it just shoots smoke and sparkles for the most part. I can hardly wait to see how my 4 year old niece reacts when my son helps her light something. I'm sure my brothers and sisters in laws will be pleased.........I'll have pictures for sure.

I wasn't paying attention..........

Just realized from my stats is that I recently reached 500 posts.


Granted, not every one of the last 500 posts have been literary masterpieces but I don't do them for you.

I do them for me.

Sounds kinda selfish but I like to write and document stuff as it happens to me. Who knows, maybe 40 years from now, my grandkids will be able to read about what their grandfather did when he was bored.....or maybe catch a video of their dad putting Mentos into Diet Coke to see what happens.

Anyways, my wife and I are getting ready to drop some large coin on our house. We plan to replace the windows, doors, soffets, siding and shutters. Currently our house has pink siding and pink shutters.

It doesn't look as bad as it sounds, but it's pretty damn close. We had the roof redone a couple years ago in a lighter color gray which makes it even more ugly, but the roof was done with this current work in mind.

Our store has a nice display of floor fans for sale, I appropriated a display model for my work area. It already had a dent in the base of it, so it wasn't going to be sold anyway and I needed to do something before I died of heatstroke. I don't perspire-I sweat.

RIP Harriet. I had previously linked about her in one of my science breaks....

I can't tell you how damn happy I am that this guy ain't my neighbor.

I'll be getting one of these for our DS Lite. I expect to go blind from trying to read web pages on a 2 1/2 inch screen by the end of summer.....

Daniel, Diet Coke and Mentos.......

I don't think I'm ever gonna grow up. At least I hope I don't. When our son wanted to drop a couple packs of Mentos mints into a 2 liter bottle of Diet Coke to see what would happen........I said "Sure, why the heck not?"

This by the way, is the most artistic Diet Coke and Mento video ever made.

I went out and bought a Nintendo DS Lite for the family to use and take on vacation. Our son already has a regular DS and he'll no doubt be using the new one most of the time, but I or Katie get first dibs on it when we want to play with it. I'm not a huge video gamer but I like playing Brain Age and Suduko will be out for the DS next week.

I got an e-mail from the owner of one of the LBS's I go to........he's taking part in this. Looks really crazy. Jay is on team #18, go to the "teams" tab and go to their web page and sign their message board. I sure hope he doesn't hurt himself.

"You sweat Crisco" Not too sure about that ad's pretty damn unkind.

Amazon is doing groceries..........mmmmm, I don't see any donuts on there anywhere-my job is safe for now.

I wonder if I can get my Camelbak bladder in one of these.

I dunno, I think I am gonna wait until they come out with free cars. Since all of the Big 3 sales are in the toilet, it shouldn't be long.

Not sure how I did it but I ripped the "B" limit screw completely off the derailleur on my mountain bike....Maybe I shoulda put one of my road bikes up for sale instead of my singlespeed.

Fixing something like that is a little bit out of my league, so into the bike shop it went. I maintain my bikes fairly well but out of all the bikes I have, I beat the living snot out of my hardtail the most, so stuff falls off of it once and awhile. It's one of the Schwinn Moabs made right before they went broke the 2nd time. I dig the way it handles and it'll be a sad day when I break it for good. know I will.

Things that piss me off. Saw this on Growabrain. One that really stands out for me is the stupid cup sizing at Starbucks. Whenever I go there, I never use their term for a large; I just ask for a "large". Works for me.....

An air-conditioned shirt. Give me a 1/2 dozen.

I haven't been much of a NASCAR fan since Dale Sr died at Daytona but I like this commercial for Budweiser. Too bad their beer doesn't taste very good. I kinda wish Tim Richmond was still around too. I never agreed with the way Bill France handled Tim's illness.

I like this. Our company sends me "opportunity" associates to retrain once and awhile. Translation........they washed out of all the other departments and I am the last stop.

If you're not into cars at all, this link ain't gonna mean a whole lot to you. I used to hang out in garages a whole lot when I was a kid and met him at Dave Stricklers garage when they both used to race at York US 30 on their off weekends....I spent lots of Saturdays sitting in the stands there. Good times for sure.....

Working for a living truly sucks....

Hey kids, here's a tip from the Donut Guy.........

If you have the chance to go to it because making donuts in the summer is a really hot and sweaty way to make a living.

After having 10 days off, I forgot how damn miserable I am when my face is 2 feet from a vat of 375 degree shortning.

Not that I'm complaining or anything.........

Buy my bike..........

Whew. It was pretty darn hot around here yesterday. I'm guessing upper 80's with a nice serving of humidity. Not that I'm complaining, I'll save that for when I go back to work tonight. I was really lucky with the weather last week-I think it rained one time the whole week I was off......good times for sure.

Looking at adding another bike to the stable. My wife say's I gotta sell something before I buy another one..........Anybody wanna buy a singlespeed????

This is almost hilarious. She's the first mom ever with 3 kids. I wonder how many nannies she has. I do admire the fact that she gives a third of her income to charity, so that counts for something.

This ain't good. If the thing blows up, people are gonna die and we won't have a manned space program. Not sure what the answer is, but if the top safety officer at NASA is being overruled........if I was gonna be strapping my ass into that thing-I'd have second thoughts.

I was riding with a buddy of mine on Saturday, the same guy that built his own chopper last year. We were discussing MP3 players and how Apple has nice players but he went with another brand because he can replace the battery and not have DRM on everything. I totally see his point, I wish Apple would come up with something like that.

I wish I woulda had my camera, I was totally digging the homemade airbox he had on his Golf.

Looks totally factory and makes really cool noises when you hit the throttle, I'm betting he would dig this Beetle since he likes Volkswagens.

Katie never had a pinata of her own to break apart when she was youger, so her boyfriend bought her very own to destroy as she saw fit.

World's ugliest truck is for sale.

Remember the recording I had of the guy trying to cancel his AOL account? The AOL dude got fired.

Had an awesome evening ride last night with a couple of buddies. We rode down to the Susquehanna and back on mostly back roads. Best part of the ride was stopping at Jim Mack's for a chocolate peanut butter milkshake. I probably broke even on calories burnt and calories consumed-but it was worth it.

This one is my favorite....

That is so true. I see people with no special plates or windshield tags park in handicapped spots all the time. I say tow the car away or put a boot on it.

I went to Gabriel Brothers to buy a new pair of shoes for work and ended up getting a bunch of new shirts and shorts. Happy Father's Day to me. It's not the most upmarket chain of stores out there but I got a nice pair of Nikes, 5 new shirts similar to Under Armour shirts and a couple new pairs of shorts for 75 bucks. 75 bucks would buy me 2 of these.

The way I rip up shirts when I go mountain biking-I'd be pissed if I tore up a 35 dollar shirt.

Sometimes, people act like sheep. While I have no problem buying a set of tires for my bike that cost as much as car tires........I have a problem with a 42 dollar t-shirt for a baby that's gonna outgrow it in 6 months. I guess it's a matter of priorities.

A George Bush joke.........

George Bush goes to a primary school to talk to the kids to get a little PR.

After his talk he offers question time. One little boy puts up his hand and George asks him his name.

"Stanley," responds the little boy.

"And what is your question, Stanley?"

"I have 4 questions:

First, why did the USA invade Iraq without the support of the UN?

Second, why are you President when Al Gore got more votes?

Third, whatever happened to Osama Bin Laden?"

Fourth, why are we so worried about gay marriage when 50 million Americans don't have health insurance?

Just then, the bell rings for recess. George Bush informs the kiddies that they will continue after recess.When they resume George says, "OK, where were we? Oh, that's right: question time. Who has a question?"Another little boy puts up his hand. George points him out and asks him his name.

"Steve," he responds.

"And what is your question, Steve?"

"Actually, I have 6 questions:

First, why did the USA invade Iraq without the support of the UN?

Second, why are you President when Al Gore got more votes?

Third, whatever happened to Osama Bin Laden?

Fourth, why are we so worried about gay marriage when 50 million Americans don't have health insurance?

Fifth, why did the recess bell go off 20 minutes early?
And sixth, what the hell happened to Stanley?"

Gotta thank my mom for that one.

Ann Coulter ain't one of my favorite people. Let's hope she doesn't breed.

My wife and I were talking about new cars and while I'd love to have a new vehicle-I also like buying toys and assorted bike stuff and to be able to pay for it every month when the bill comes. So I'll be driving my "paid for" minivan until the wheels rust off of it.

Since my lovely wife is a nurse and has to drive quite a bit for her job, I think we'll be getting her a new vehicle sometime in the next year and giving our old one to our daughter to drive. Since she's been driving Subarus for the last 15 years-I'm sure that's what we'll be getting.

Comparing my Chrysler minivan to her Outback..........I wish I woulda bought an Outback when I was shopping for a vehicle. My minivan rattles, shakes and vibrates and her Outback feels like it was carved out of a single piece of steel even after 70,000 miles. At least her car was made here in America.

My van only has 40,000 miles and it will be the last Chrysler I buy no matter what.

Saw the following post on CycleDog's blog.......I think Ed handled it very well. Drivers of commercial vehicles sometimes forget that their companies name is painted on the side. My pop is the safety director for a tire wholesaler that has a fleet of about 25 trucks. They are all equipped with GPS and my dad can pinpoint each one and see how fast they are driving in real time. He observed one driver going over 90 miles an hour. Not sure what happened to that guy but damn.......

Here's a great article about the joys of parenthood. Me? I wouldn't change a thing. We have 2 of the bestest, greatest kids ever. Our daughter is headed off to college in 2 months and our son is already in 8th grade. Time flies.

I almost fell asleep listening.

Which is it? Is he gay or is he blind?

A good ole drunk Irishman joke........

An Irishman is walking along the beach one day, and he sees a bottle laying in the sand.

He picks it up and starts to brush it off, and out pops a genie.

The genie says, "Since you have freed me from the bottle, I will grant you three wishes.

" The Irishman thinks for a moment and says, "I'm feeling a might thirsty, I think I'll be wishing for a pint of stout.


There is a pint of stout in his hand. He drinks it down, and starts to throw the bottle, when the genie says, "I'd look at that bottle again before I threw it if I were you."

So he looks at the bottle, and it is magicaly filling back up with stout. The genie told him, "That is a magic bottle, and it will always fill back up after you finish it."

The genie then asked, "What other two wishes can I grant for you?" The Irishman smiles and looks at the bottle in his hand and says,

"I'll be taking two more of these!"


Today's science break. Maybe some of it's underneath my house.

I didn't screw it up...........

I'm so happy.

I managed to open up the computer and replaced the memory stick with 2 brand new 1 gig sticks. And the computer still works. Amazing.

I like it because I usually have a bazillion different programs running at the same time, 20 or so tabs open in Firefox and it's way faster now.

I also blew out about 5 pounds of dust; I was surprised at how dirty the inside of the computer was.

Here is why you should never, NEVER get an AOL account. Friends don't let friends use AOL.

Here's what I want for Father's Day. 425 horsepower should do the trick. Yeah, I know it ain't a bike but I can still dream...........Anyways, my wife said I can get a motorcycle after our son is out of college.........only 9 more years.

I have to admire what Patrick Kennedy has done. He actually admitted he has a problem and is willing to face the consequences. Maybe if all the folks in Washington could have the same attitude concerning all the problems we face-something might get done. Ahhh, that's wishful thinking on my part.

News bloopers. Safe for work video on a NSFW website.

One of the smartest guys in the world says we should move out. I've read his book "A Brief History of Time" and he might be right about colonizing other worlds, but we need something other then the space shuttle to do it.

My best friend is a trauma nurse at the local hospital and I'm sure he has planty of stories about dumbasses that don't wear helmets when they ride their motorcycles. They have a seatbelt law for a reason. I'm for freedom of choice, but damn......their isn't any reason not to wear a helmet.......

Check this site out. I've been using his host file hack for a number of years with absolutely no problems. You'll see way, WAY less ads with his host file hack. If you have certain spyware or anti-virus software programs running, they might pop up a warning after you download and run his file. You can safely disregard all the warnings. Trust me.

Today's science break. Let's get high. Real high.

I have more memory........

More memory for the computer, that is.

I wish I could upgrade my personal memory.

I'm fairly absent minded and unfortunately.....I have passed this trait onto our daughter. We had an appointment yesterday where she needed several forms of ID to get a TB shot. Whoops, she left them at home. No biggie-just a short drive home to retrieve the documents-I do the same thing all the time.

I'm going from 512 megs to a full gig on the computer. I've never cracked the case on this box, I have to buy some compressed air to clean out the dust bunnies and hopefully everything will go smoothly.

Hearing test..........I can hear up to 14,000 at normal volume. After that, I have to turn the volume way up to hear the tones. I'm 46 and went to my share of AC/DC concerts when I was a kid......damn, I'm getting old.

Yahoo e-mail worm. This is the first I've heard of this, but better to be safe then sorry.

I'm not really much of a Britney Spears fan, but Holy Mother of God.....why can't they leave the poor girl alone?

Most Windows users have worms. No, not those kind of worms....these kind of worms. Here's a tool to see if you have worms,trojans or any other nasties.

Here's a really good piece about how to assemble a bike. Which is why you should never buy a Wal-Mart bike unless you already know how to fix bikes.

I took a short ride with the Surly on the new 28 mm tires. I have them pumped up to 80 psi and the difference between it and the Cannondale with it's 23 mm tires is like the difference between full suspension and a rigid hardtail. Niiiiice:-)

Here's a photo that will make any serious cyclist smile.

Google Earth 4 is out.

Today's science break. I've been on vacation and I've taken an afternoon nap every day so far and I've been feeling great with the added sleep. And it might explain why our daughter sleeps in until 11 AM in the summer.

Killer fat. Makes me feel like a tobacco farmer instead of a baker.

I don't crash too many programs, but when I do-it's nice to not have the "Error Reporting" box pop up. Here's how to disable it.

Today is Patch Tuesday if you run a Windows box. It looks like a biggie.

Today's totally inappropriate joke...........
Vegas Cab Ride A successful businessman flew to Vegas to gamble for the weekend. He lost the shirt off his back, and had nothing left but a quarter and the second half of his round trip ticket. If he could just get to the airport he could get himself home. So he went out to the front of the casino where there was a cab waiting. He got in and explained his situation to the cabbie. He promised to send the driver money from home, he offered him his credit card numbers, his driver's license number, his address, etc. but to no avail. The cabbie said, "If you don't have $15, get the hell out of my cab!" So the businessman was forced to hitchhike to the airport and barely made it in time to catch his flight. One year later, the businessman, having worked long and hard to regain his financial success, returned to Vegas and this time he won big. Feeling pretty good about himself, he went out to the front of the casino to get a cab ride back to the airport. Well who should he see out there, at the end of a long line of cabs, but his old buddy who had refused to give him a ride when he was down on his luck. The businessman thought for a moment about how he could make the guy pay for his lack of charity, and he hit on a plan. The businessman got in the first cab in the line. "How much for a ride to the airport?" he asked. "Fifteen dollars," came the reply. "And how much for you to give me oral sex on the way?" "What? Get the hell out of my cab." The businessman got into the back of each cab in the long line and asked the same questions, with the same result. When he got to his old friend at the back of the line, he got in and asked, "How much for a ride to the airport?" The cabbie replied, "Fifteen bucks." The businessman said, "Okay," and off they went. Then, as they drove slowly past the long line of cabs, the businessman gave a big smile and thumbs up to all the other drivers.

Still having fun on vacation...............

Dumbasses go fishing.......

Yeah, that would be me and my son. I know you are supposed to be quiet and relaxed when you go fishing because someone told me that loud noises scare the fish away.

We weren't very quiet last night.......

Lake Redman was smooth as glass last night and every once and awhile we would see fish jumping out of the water but since Daniel and I were more concerned about having "let's see who can cast the furtherest contests" and "a lets make the dock rock back and forth contest" we only caught 1 fish apiece. Whatever. We stopped at 5 Guys Burgers and had a late dinner and called it a night. Sometimes fishing is more about having a good time then it is about fish.

I also had a very nice ride earlier in the day with my buddy Hank, did 35 mostly flat miles and had some good discussion. I could hardly imagine the stress being a trauma nurse entails..... the difference between me having a bad night at work and him having a bad night at work? I might burn a few donuts......his job on the other hand? I have much respect for what he does.

Since Hank and I got kicked out of YAMBA, we have discussed starting up a new Yahoo group for cyclists in the York area to organize rides, we started it up this past weekend, anyone that wants to check it out......go here. Feel free to post up rides, start a discussion or whatever. I might not agree with your opinion, but I won't kick you out of the group unless you post porno links, or drop the "F" bomb every 3rd word.

I was going to post some stuff about what's going on in Washington and in Iraq, but honestly........I'm kinda burnt out on all the bad news. I suppose all I want is for the troops to get out of Iraq and for Bush to be impeached. Neither one is going to happen in the immediate future, so it pisses me off everytime I read about more Americans getting killed.

If you haven't checked out "Growabrain" are missing some good links. I could spend time posting some of his links, just go there yourself and check it out.

My wife saw the following cartoon..............

Pretty much says it all.

This story makes me laugh. I want to get my kids names put on my upper arm, but it ain't gonna be in Chinese. Those lower back tattoos I see are nice but I always wonder how they will look when the wearer is 75 years old.

This is pretty neat. I could see me just playing with it for a couple of hours. It doesn't take much to make me happy.

Hey Bubba, watch this. Even England has dumbass rednecks.

Saw this inappropriate joke on Drunkcyclist.......

You can be the man of the house........

The husband had just finished reading a new book entitled You Can Be the Man of Your House.

He stormed to his wife in the kitchen." From now on, you need to know that I'm the man of this house and my word is law!

You will prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, and when I'm finished eating my meal, you will serve me a sumptuous dessert.

After dinner you are going to go upstairs with me and we will have the kind of sex that I want.

After that, you are going to draw me a bath so I can relax.

You will wash my back and towel me dry and bring me my robe.

Then you will massage my feet and hands. Then tomorrow, guess who's going to dress me and comb my hair?"

The wife replied, "The "f**king funeral director would be my guess."

Over the Hedge......

I escorted our son and his lady friend to watch Over the Hedge yesterday. Daniel is such a gentleman when he is around girls-I can't say too much about what a nice guy he is-I don't want to embarrass him.

I bought a set of Specialized Armadillos for the Surly yesterday- I have the same tire on my Cannondale in a 23mm size; I bought the 28mm version for the Surly...........I'm taking this bike down to Myrtle beach in a few weeks-I don't want to screw around with flats. I've ridden right over broken glass before and not had any problems-I really like these tires.

Crap. I missed this. Probably a good thing as I'm kinda out of shape right at the moment-I'd hate to scare anyone by riding my bike without any clothes on. Riding in city traffic here in America can be scary, I wouldn't want to try it in Mexico.

Black toilet paper? I'm sure they'll be making camouflage TP real soon.

I'm tired and hitting the sack early today.

Till later.

666 is here.

Today is 6/06/06.

It doesn't really mean anything until you are superstitious.


I'm gonna spend every Tuesday like I spend every other sleeping most of the day.

About the only bad thing that could happen to me while I'm hard at sleep is to have one of the giant oak trees in our back yard to fall over directly onto our bedroom. If I don't post tommorrow, you'll know what happened.

Not much time to post up much today, ya'll gotta check this guy's site out-lot's of interesting links. Kinda like my site, only it's way, way better.

Till later.
Our daughters graduation was in the high school auditorium........the non-air conditioned auditorium. I'm really surprised that no one passed out especially the grads since they were wearing a polyester gown and cap for 2 hours that broiled them from the inside out.

It all worked out; nobody died and all the kids got their diploma. They had an after graduation all night party at the school, she won a TV and had a great time. On Saturday evening, we had another party for her and her cousin who also graduated......they made out like bandits. Janet and I bought her a new whiz-bang digital camera and she got a mini fridge.

Here are some of the pictures in case you missed them on the Flickr badge on the homepage.

Our friends the Wittes have twins, those two little guys never stopped moving at the graduation party, I couldn't imagine the workout those little guys give their mom and dad.

Even though I've said that the media should leave Britney alone, her husband is fair game. The guy sounds like a real waste of skin.

I love this video. SFW video on a NSFW website.

Good God, that's a tasty toasted cheese sandwich.

This link will make you think.

Oh, that's how he does it.

This isn't good any way you look at it.

I'm fairly liberal..... no, let's make that extremely liberal and I think this is a dumb law. If someone wants to get married......let'em get married. Even if they are the same sex- it's none of mine or the Federal Government's business.

Today's science break. Geology was my favorite subject in high school.

Restaurants should serve healthier food. But they're not going to. Food that's fried or made with stuff that ain't good for you tastes better, so it sells better. If people wanted healthier choices when they wanted to go out to eat-they would ask for them. Restaurants are in business to make money-if bean sprouts and tofu were in high demand- they would be on the menu.

This dude has the skills to pay the bills. Unbelievable.

I don't think I have this, but I have a very hard time finding my wife in a crowd of people.

I like a few of these.

6/6/06 might be a problem.

Wanna beer Officer? I got some right here in my motorized cooler.

The only thing missing here is a commercial for Lawn Darts.

Hell yeah. I'd try it.

I'd rather be lucky then good any day. I used to be into golf before I started cycling and while I enjoyed it-I pretty much sucked. Long term, it's way more expensive then cycling and not nearly as good a workout. The only thing I think should be transfered over from golf to cycling is to have a 19th hole at the trailhead.

Speaking of riding, next week is a vacation week-I hope to put a few miles in because I head down to Myrtle Beach at the end of July and one of my nephews is taking his road bike. I don't want some young kid kicking my ass all week long. Yeah, right that won't happen.

Till later.
