  • Before the Internet

    I’m no Luddite, I use a PC, smartphone, etc.  Hell, I had a Macintosh with external hard-drives of 256MB and using a 2400 baud modem in the late 80’s.  I was an early AOL email user.  I used to send in my orders as a OEM rep over the modem with a cheesy form’s program I found at Compusource.  My

  • Pet Peeves of Suburbia or “Who the F@#& created those extendo-leashes?”

    I live in suburbia. And I hate it, most of the time. There’s the typical house upon house along with the residents who are hopped up, passive-aggressive soccer moms bent on getting their kids into Ivy League schools or pro athletics to satisfy their tormented souls. And many of the men who live in my neck of the woods are

    Another Cycling Blog? Bleh…..

    I know, I know. Another cycling blog isn’t really what most of you want since you might read about 4-5 along with your other web-browsing. I, myself, love to read Steve Tilford’s, RKP, Twisted Spoke, Fat Cyclist, among others. Let me explain.
