Sports Basement to Lucas Valley & Tiburon Loop Find more Bike Rides in San Francisco, California Here is the summary from the cycling training ride my girlfriend and I did on Sunday, July 18th 2010. On September 25 - 26, 2010, I'm joining more than a thousand cyclists for the Bike MS: Waves to Wine Ride. This two-day bike ride isn't a race, but it does raise money in the race to find the cure for multiple sclerosis. Last year, cyclists raised over $1.5 Million to help the 20,000 Northern Californians living with MS, a degenerative disease of the central nervous system. Researchers are making progress, but the cause and cure are still over the horizon. And that's why I saddle up to ride. With this journey, I'm helping the National Multiple Sclerosis Society fund research to find the cause, cure and treatment of MS. My participation also helps support services for people affected by MS. My fundraising supports the ride's 2009 goal of $1.75 million. Please help people living with MS in our community by making a one-time, tax-deductible donation. Click on the link at the bottom of this message to visit my personal page to make a donation. Any amount you feel comfortable giving is deeply appreciated. With your support, we can make a positive impact today in the lives of 20,000 men, women and children with multiple sclerosis. Thank you! I'm an awesome person and would love to donate to your ride, Alex! Continue »

i never thought i would care about "blogging". i mean seriously, what is all the fuss about? i don't have much to say and when i do who really cares but me? (well... i'd like to think my dog cares but that's most likely a fantasy) anyway, what started out as a testing blog quickly became a repository for all the weird, funny stuff i find online as a side-effect of my job and the software nerd-verse i'm in every day. mostly this was created to amuse myself through the tedious task of testing, but then i discovered that this...

I've always found my dentist to be attractive. In fact, that's why my former coworker referred me to him when I started working in the city six years ago. He has these amazing blue eyes you immediately get lost in and forget that your mouth is being poked and prodded. And to make dentist visits even more complicated, he and I grew up in the same town and have very similar interests like running away together...oops, I mean, traveling. Every six months, I have the pleasure of staring into his eyes coupled with the difficulty of trying not to move... Continue »

Wednesday night, for the first time in who-knows-how-long, I stepped onto the scale at the gym, slid the heavy weight over to 220, and it dropped. Which means that I’ve lost somewhere between 20 to 25 pounds in the past... Continue »

It's official, sort of: San Francisco is the smartest city in the country. In an analysis of the number of people with college or graduate degrees per square mile, San Francisco edges out New York City and handily beats every other city on the list. via www.sfgate.com Well, DUH. Continue »

Such is Hitchens’ intellectual journey. From one certainty to the next, he has leapt across the stepping stones of life, only rarely dipping a toe into the murky waters of doubt. Hitch-22 has its redeeming qualities – perhaps most vividly in Hitchens’ telling of his mother’s quiet determination to turn him into an English gentleman. Yet the book mostly fails to accentuate whatever redeeming qualities its author has. Indeed, the further it progresses, the harder it is to escape the feeling that its subject deserves a much more nuanced biographer than this. via www.ft.com Thoroughly enjoyed reading this critique, worth...
