    The weather is here, wish you were beautiful

    The weather has been beautiful here in NW TN today. Temp got up to around 60, but high tomorrow is supposed to be 38. Last Friday I think the high was 15. Anyway, I left the office around 3, drove home, and got my bike and rode back to the office. It's not but about 3 miles, but a nice ride.

    Why ride back to the office? It's poets day (P*ss off early- tomorrows saturday) and seems the ideal weather to have have stretched that ride to a 30.

    All the better for you. I've heard everyone in that poll is butt ugly.

    Please refrain from making poll-ish jokes that are unwarranted.

    I can't take credit for the title - It is a Jimmy Buffett song.

    About 20 degrees C here today - what's that in degrees F? High 60s, I imagine. Lovely ride this morning, like a European spring day. Sunny, breezy, very comfortable with a Helly Hanson base layer, merino jersey and a pair of tights. It'll stay like this for about another 4 weeks, and then the thermostat goes up to levels that can warm up a pie!

    Yep, 20 C = 68 F

    32 + 1.8 * your C reading
