Boneyard. Literally…

One of my favorite parts of my job is my interaction with the police and paramedics who visit the department. Paramedics are obviously there all the time, but whenever the police are there, it’s always something fairly interesting. It’s my chance to see inside the officers daily lives from the “other side”, as opposed to side that’s sitting behind the…

Equinox Ride

Another beautiful ride at Bavington with the Fry Guy. The sun was out, the air temperature was cool, just a hint of fall. And the trails were awesome. Awesome. Zoomy, fun, smooth, pine needle covered trails with a handful of roots and logs just to make it interesting. We added in a loop we’d skipped, which was mesmerizing, then retraced…

Crack Puppy

THis story appeared in the news today. I’m glad the puppy didn’t have a heart attack. But I saw the puppy on TV and it was emaciated. But how long does it take a puppy emaciated? And how long did he have the puppy? I wonder if he didn’t aquire it in that state. In any case I’m glad the…

Ben’s Worst Game?

Yes, he got sacked, but he wasn’t runnign like he usually did. I have to say that Jacksonville earned the win. If my best friend from high…

Tri became Du

25 knot winds and a small craft advisory cancelled the swim portion of the Great Lake Escape. Well, you can imaging from the title of the triatlon, the swim is really what makes this an awesome triathlon. So it was changed to a duathlon instead…not my favorite, I wouldn’t have entered. While fun from the point of view of meeting…

Procrastination

I procrastinated all night to get my crap together. THen it took me all of 10 minutes to get the majority of my stuff together. Of course there is that 80/20 rule, so if I got 80% of the stuff done in 10 minutes, the other 20% will take me another 40 minutes…sounds about right. Here’s a great checklist site:…

City Lights

Wow…did you see that F**King AWESOME Pregame show tonight? Yeah, yeah sure, the Steelers won teh game, but D*MN, that pregame show was amazing. I’m not talking about the music…I’m talking about how beautiful the city looked! I’ve been to lots of cities taht are considered beautiful…VAncouver, SEattle, San Diego, San Francisco, Paris…but all of them paled in comparison to…
