My main route is to my basement. You're welcome to bring your trainer over.

Coming out from under the rocks...Busy week at work, but still made time to train!

The gem of the week was getting the email from the project manager telling me we need to wrap this project up ASAP since we are out of money as of yesterday...Ok,do you want it done or not?? And BTW, I'm sure budget was well on it's way to being blown way before I got involved to fix things up...

Some days I really detest my job...Other days, not so much...

To save money, my boss got rid of the dispatcher and switched us to a computer dispatch system. It's been a fiasco and he insists all the problems are due to the mechanics not entering job status properly. He also fired the other guy I was sharing work with, so now I am overwhelmed quite often. I haven't taken a vacation or missed a day this year, so I would like to quit most days when things get crazy.
Wednesday he comes to my area and threatens to "send me home" if I don't enter the job status of all the cars I'm working on. PLEASE send me home, you dumbass.
I'd love an extra day off and good luck getting someone else to fix the 12 cars I do that day.
The man was not born to lead.

8:30 and I don't feel like riding. There is an 8 mile hike I was eyeing yesterday. Might be taking the dog out there later this morning.

Yahoo claims that your job is one of the two types that is dying for more people, need more qualified people, etc. I thought of you when I read that article. I guess not everything on the internet is true.

I was having dinner with the family about six blocks away before putting my son on the bus back to NYC, and then this happened.

There might be something out there for me but I keep hoping things get better where I am, I've been there 15 years! The other thing is, what I do is very specialized, engine electronics on G.M. cars. If you asked me to do a brake job on a Volvo, it might take a little time. If you asked me to take the heads off of a diesel, I would just laugh.

I didn't watch the video but saw the aftermath pictures. Jeepers. I figure everyone's okay if you're posting about it.

Yes, we are all okay. We drove right by that strip joint on the way to the restaurant, somewhere between 5 and 10 minutes before it blew.

Glad you guys went by when you did and not a bit later, that would have been nasty...

I've perfected the whole peeing off the side of your bike while still riding thing today. Used it twice, felt so nice, and didnt have to make anyone stop for me.

well except for the time it got caught in my rear wheel....
