I've never considered myself fashionable, a good decorator, as having an eye for coordination, none of that. I've always been a bit rough around the edges. A tomboy, some would say, but I think that is incorrect. I know plenty of tomboys who aren't rough around the edges. I've always... Continue reading

One universal truth I've come across over the years is that everyone has made a mistake doing their job at some point in their career. I'm talking big mistakes, the kind where you really should learn something fundamental from it. This isn't limited to IT. Granted, IT mistakes tend to... Continue reading

Here is another post by my sister Candi. It relates heavily to her profession, so I included a small part of her signature so you would understand where it comes from. While it goes against my vow of only using pictures I personally produced, I inserted the picture for my... Continue reading

My sister has started a blog as well. It's on a private network, so I can't link to it, but I get a copy and here it is: There is no doubt about it. A mobile phone is a necessity for me in this day and age. I have a... Continue reading

If you have not read part a, go back to it. This will make more sense to you after you do so. Monday morning, I had stuff to do. I called the doctor, who set me up an appointment to come in and see him the following day. I went... Continue reading

I have relived this story over and over again so many times; I sometimes grow weary of its telling. This is probably where my reputation for being incautious with my personal well-being originated. As I approach the 4th anniversary of my accident, I suppose a retelling is in order. I... Continue reading

Everyone knows the name of Lance Armstrong, the Texan who beat brain, lung and testicular cancer to go on and win the Tour De France a record 7 consecutive times. He founded the Live Strong organization which has fingers out into everything from cancer research to nutrition information. Lance is... Continue reading

I am always so impatient to get to Florida. Last month I needed to renew my license. This month my daughter is singing at Disney. Work is slow this time of year, I mean who wants to spend money fixing their heat so they can stay warm? There are presents... Continue reading

I have been accused of several indiscretions to my own safety. I once posted as a status "It never occurred to me that I couldn't." There was no arrogance in that statement. Instead, it was an admission of a childish thought process that hatched strange plans and lacked the foresight... Continue reading

I parked at the top of the exit ramp where it met up with the surface street and got out. I wandered back and forth in a small area trying desperately to get enough cell service to call my sister. That by itself probably took about 15 minutes. When I... Continue reading

Last night I went for a bike ride. No news there. I am constantly going for bike rides, and with the days short as they are right now, the word 'night' is more often than not associated with my rides. Last night was cold. I mean my feet were numb... Continue reading

It's hardly a secret to those who are even moderately familiar with me that I like riding my bike. I like spending the day out on 100+ mile routes, cycling around some city or another, rides in the rain, or rides at night. It gives me solace. I can just... Continue reading

As this summer has ground to a close, and yes I said ground. Since it will be December this week, and it's over 60 today, I think I can put it that way. I Have noticed that, despite the temperate weather, people's additudes are anything but temperate. The days are... Continue reading

My line of work brings me in contact with a lot of people. I see them on the road. I see them in their homes. I see the way they live, and interact with each other. Often, I even get to see how they perceive me in my station in... Continue reading

I have been posting on facebook, and probably more than I should, about my insights and experiences as they relate to cycling. ...Mostly. I started posting long diatribes on facebook at the beginning of summer to promote a bike ride Form NJ to Florida. My son and I planned and... Continue reading
