Are you cheating???? That looks like cheesecake; which is a snobby prententious pie wannabe...

Great coffee cup, how's the coffee? I'm a bit of a coffee nut.

Coffee is fantastic but this was Lime pie. The Italians make fantastic cappuchino but just needed a caffeine fix today so a strong large black coffee was on the cards. Must admit that I thought it was cheesecake but was labelled as Lime pie and it was definitely something with a lot of Citrus in it. Almost had to have doughnut to take the sourness away.

Is that an iPod hanging around your neck? You have to tell us what tunes you were listening to...

Have about 100 songs on there- Mainly Blues with a lot of John Lee Hooker--Some Queen but not very much and a lot of Status Quo. Have about 4 tunes in a row with cadence of 85 to 95 then a slow at around 70. Interspersed is the occasional 110 cadence that always seem to come on when I am feeling just a bit tired but change up a few gears to get the cadence up and it lifts the speed just a bit.

And for those that frown on I Pod use- Loose fittings earpieces and low volume so I can still hear the cars behind.
