    And when I start erupting ain’t nobody gonna make me stop

    I’m trying to get everybody a little love before the Ride next Sunday. I know there is going to be 8 days with no PBE coming up. Unless Title Slug comes in and gives you some love in my absence. First up, THANK YOU! I made it. Not that there isn’t time to donate to my ride because there is, but I blew through the fundraising minimum yesterday. I knew I would. I had an amazing day a couple of weeks ago. We’d just ridden Morgan Territory Road over the weekend and I was sitting down with a client. I’d been sitting for a while and when I went to…

  • Cycling,  I Like Ike

    Count your blessings to find what you look for

    It’s almost the end of May and somehow I made it.  I don’t really know how.  And I don’t really know what I did this month besides ride my bike.  I know there were three major events I had to deal with but I can only remember the Doberman Specialty in Vallejo.  How cute is Ike with the puppy? We didn’t raise a ton of money but certainly enough to buy a couple of weeks worth of dog food for the rescue. I would like to take a moment to complain about the weather.  Mt. Diablo ride -terrible gusts of wind ruin the descent keeping us to 17mph.  Morgan Territory…

    While evil spirits haunt their sleep

    As a child, my father used to tell us all these stories about his hometown and growing up.  There is a point where you think that every word your father utters is the absolute gospel.  And then there’s a point where you think he’s been just bullshitting you all along.  And then there’s a day where you realize that he was telling you the gospel truth the whole time. He used to tell us this ghost story about a light up on the end of a road.  This light would appear at night and if you’d approach it, the light would disappear.  Supposedly there had been scientists out there and…

    That’s great, it starts with an earthquake

    Well, I’m still here.  Guess that rapture gig didn’t work out so good for Mr. Camping.  You gots a lot of splaining to do Lucy.  Let’s start with a few random Bible quotes.  Matthew 7:15. I don’t know what this New International Version is…let’s go with King James. 15Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a…

    Welcome to my silly life

    Hello Kittens!  Bonus drive by today.  It’s 16 days until the AIDS ride.  13 days until my broker’s exam and the day before I do a rescue presentation at the NorCal Doberman Pinscher Club’s Specialty in Vallejo.  The good news, I got a couple of buyers into their homes.  The bad news, I’ve barely cracked a book for the broker’s exam and that’s not going to bode well for me.  Somehow it looks like I’m going to get through this May after all.  God williing with my broker’s license.  But that’s the one that’s really worrying me.  Once I get through Saturday I’ll be banging the books until June 1. …

    Just have your party on TV

    Let the jackassery begin! First up, last week’s training ride. A ride mapped on 05/17/2011 Find more Cycling Routes / Bike Rides in Orinda, CA Don’t forget to click the “view elevation” button for more entertainment. How much did this suck? Well, it shouldn’t have. I really enjoy Morgan Territory for some sick reason. Good climbing, but the descent is a big sloppy reward with a cherry on top. It’s smooth, scenic if you look up, well banked and a lot of fun. Unless the wind is gusting freaking 40mph and you have to grab the brakes all the way down. The second hard climb in as many weeks where…

    Pace yourself for me

    I know, I still suck.  It takes a lot of time to train for the AIDS ride.  Trust me on that.  I was in the saddle from 6:30am until 5pm on Saturday.  And I’d like to take a minute to bitch about that ride. A ride mapped on 05/08/2011 Find more Cycling Routes / Bike Rides in Orinda, CA There’s a Cat 5 and a Cat 2 climb in there. The Cat 5 I didn’t even notice. I assume it’s the one on San Pablo Road before it turned into or maybe just after it turned into Carquinez Scenic Road. It wasn’t that bad. We road through Orinda, El Sobrante,…

    Give me 40 acres and I’ll turn this rig around

    Seems like it was a great week to be Obama.  First he hands Trump his lunch and then he brings Osama Bin Laden in on a slab.  And in the middle, he showed up in Alabama where the State got it’s ass kicked by tornados.  Heck of a job there Brownie wouldn’t have made it down there for another week.  He’s begining to sound like a Colt McCoy joke.  I wish I could remember one right now, but the essence is that Colt McCoy is super human.  One voice we didn’t hear yesterday, Mr. Wanted Dead or Alive useless cowboy. I’m not too comfortable with the rejoicing over his death. …
