    Is that really enough to make an informed opinion?

    I thought he was pretty good, until this poll.

    Those posts sneak up on you. I looked myself up to see if I had 3,000 posts. I have over 7,800. I never would have guessed half that many.

    Please refrain from any feedback about how I'm doing.

    I give you an A, and I'd give you an A based on this post alone, about the stealth decals: Candy Blue Colnago

    But I always enjoy reading your posts, and you spell well.

    Kind of like myself...

    I have to admit, I found myself wondering if I would be like Roberto Clemente, and die with 3,000 hits... But then I quickly realized, I have 3,000 posts, and nowhere near 3,000 hits.

    I gave him an E just for making this "attention *****" poll.

    BTW, did anyone else realize that "hoor" spelled correctly is a banned word?

    So is the word for a female dog, which I actually wanted to use in a PM to refer to a female dog. That is not* a cuss word.

    I gave him a B B-cause he didn't appear at the Bike Forums meeting at the Lancaster Covered Bridges Ride.

    But I plan to be there next year...

    And I should also be at the Bucks County Covered Bridge ride this year, but probably only doing one of the short flat rides... There just doesn't seem to be as big a push for a BikeForums meeting for that one.

    Well, nobody else seemed to want to give me my 15 minutes of fame! So, I went out and grabbed it!

    Now that it is almost over, all I can say, is it was well worth it!

    It was a good post/poll. For putting up with all the ribbing you deserve the A's you got. You are now a regular fixture here in 50+.

    There is a Big Darwin, sort of... But I outgrew him long ago.

    Now, as with many old farts, I will start off on a long interesting tale. Interesting to nobody but me, but interesting.

    Many years ago my parents were divorced, and my father didn't bother to keep track of my whereabouts, and I was so young that I didn't even realize until I was 14 or so that the person I called dad wasn't even my real dad... flash forward about 30 years, and my younger brother looked up our birth father, and we met up with him at a large family reunion that they had every other year in the Seattle year.

    As it turned out, my dad's name is Darwin, so the family would occasionally sit around and wonder what ever happened to Little Darwin... since they hadn't seen me since I was about 3 or 4 years old. So at the reunion, everyone called me Little Darwin, which I enjoyed immensely. Big Darwin stands about 5' 6" and weighs about 160, and I was about 6' and weighed 420, so I had fun with the ironic name...

    Each reunion they have a fun little awards ceremony at the end, and the person announcing me called me up as "Darwin Jr" and I corrected her, and said "Little Darwin" so among the cousins, I am still Little Darwin.

    Yeah, but if you read the posts, the E's often stood for Excellent....
