Here are a few pics of Emily Elbers, a young racer from Central, NY at the 2012 USA Collegiate Track Nationals. She's a local racer, a really nice kid who can dish out a world of hurt on the local OCC club rides. This is her first year at college, here's hoping her talent takes her a long way in women's cycling. I think the photographer ( it's not me ) did a really nice job ... you can really see her concentration. Continue reading

Certainly gives you some ideas for a quick house addition. It looked functional, I saw lights inside. " Continue reading

Here it it is, January 7, 2012, so far we've seen only 13 inches of snow in Syracuse NY. Last year at this time, we had 77 inches. Since the snow is so scarce, I was able to get 32 miles on the bike today. Temp was 50F, light breeze, roads were damp to dry. A great day to be out on the bike. Check out this pic. It's looking North / North West from near the intersection of Shepherd and Stump roads in Marcellus, NY. No snowbank to hold up the bike like I had in March 2010. Below... Continue reading

Hi everyone, These pics are from my helmet cam video taken on OCC's Marcellus Figure 8 ride from Saturday 5/7/2011. We're coming up on a left turn onto Forward Road from Route 174 in Marcellus, NY, when this truck decides it can't wait the few seconds for the group to make this turn. We're probably moving about 20 mph at this point. The amount of time elapsed from just prior to the first picture to the last picture is about 22 seconds. Comments? Is this a great advertisement for this company? Pic 1 ) First riders ( at least 5... Continue reading

Last Saturday was nice and sunny with the temp up to about 45F. It was a great day for my first March ride of 2010 here in upstate NY. Saw some maple trees tapped on Thompson road in Camillus. Still was a lot of snow on the sides of the road and out in the fields. Check out this pic. It's looking North / North west from near the intersection of Shepherd and Stump roads in Marcellus, NY. And here's a couple looking out at Skaneateles Lake from the village of Skaneateles. The ice was still on the lake. In... Continue reading

So, every month we get the electric and gas bill from our friendly utility, National Grid. I read on the internet people complaining about their utility company regarding rate hikes, taxes, fees, supply costs, etc., so I decided to look at our utility bill to see how it stacks up against other utilities. I started with the natural gas part of the bill as we heat ( the house and water ) and cook with natural gas. I looked at the gas bills from 1/2009 thru 2/2010. Here are some #'s from this time frame : Number of months =... Continue reading
