Welcome September!

Last quarter of the year. It’s starting out *hot*, too! Phew. Because of where we live, it actually gets cooler overnight, but heats up a lot during the day this time of year. With the humidity, it gets foggy. Here was a shot from my ride after breakfast yesterday. This was probably around 9 am […]

Catching up!

It’s been a little busy around here and rather than just a ride post, I would talk about other stuff going on as well.

I finally finished my 2nd upholstered chair. This one has been in my basement work room for months now and I missed it.

The white is more of a creamy […]

Tuesday Things

Just some random thoughts for a Tuesday.

1. We were thinking about it being a little over a year since we closed on Radiance Manor. I looked back and saw our kitchen pics from 1 year ago:

That period of time is such a blur now. It kind of amazes me how much work […]

Beating the heat

I think today is the last day of the heat and humidity. Thank goodness. I pushed my ride to before breakfast the last 3 days. That’s always the case for Wednesday bagels, but on Tuesday and today I was up with the sun riding. That’s early enough since I don’t ride in the dark. John […]

Finished trunk!

Wednesday – guess what day it is?? That’s right, Bagel Day! It was actually cool this morning in the 60s, so we wore long pants for riding to breakfast. The deliciousness:


That coffee is a 20 oz coffee, too. The only way to start the day!

That new account for work has […]

Insomnia and cake!

Today was one of those really long days. I had to actually go into my work’s office today to get trained on some software for our new account. We were supposed to be there at 8 am. Of course, that meant I slept terribly last night, waking up every half hour and then laying there […]

Happy birthday John!

Happy, happy birthday to my bud! John’s birthday is today. He gets a nice long celebration. Last weekend was the drum corps, tonight is dinner and then Thursday is the cake party. We do like to extend the birthdays around here. I’ll get to his birthday dinner in a bit.

Work has been on a […]

DCI drum corps show!

Surprise – no biking this weekend! John’s birthday is this week and to celebrate, his request was to go see the Drum Corps International show in Allentown.


It was about a 4-1/2 hour drive down there. We checked into our hotel and then went over to the stadium. Holy crow was it […]

Obesity Study

Yet another study on the futility of losing weight has been making the media rounds. These things piss me off. Not so much the study, but how the abstract gets passed around and highlights taken out to make it seem like anyone trying to lose weight is doomed. Just doomed.



Here is […]

Hot, muggy and antiques!

Man was it hot and humid this weekend. So, no really long ride, which also meant no cupcake this weekend. Oh well. We did ride early on Saturday since it was supposed to be rainy later (which never happened), but it was really hot and muggy. We decided to tackle that little wall in the […]
