Another beautiful day to be riding and I'm stuck at work.

On my morning commute this morning I passed 2 small herd of deer and a coyote out for his/her morning hurt. What a wonderful way to start an awful day at work. I work at a cultural institution and the first Saturday of every month is a free admission day. We we have anywhere from 4 to 7 thousand people through the doors. I should have called in sick.

You are generating good karma. You will be rewarded, in this life or the life to follow.

Not to be all finicky, but there are 15 million people out there who'd love to have your problem. I just watched a moving van haul my neighbor's furniture away. He's an electrician who hasn't worked in eight months.

When I last commuted to work on my bike, part of the morning ride was thru a game reserve at the baylands marsh (San Francisco Bay). That was my favorite part of the day, seeing the marsh, quiet in the morning. Not something that can easily be described with words, by me anyway. A real treat.

Jeff, still fat

The visitors at DAM value your efforts, especially when you direct them to the wrong door. Hey, it is still light out - go ride.

Nothing is more opposed to cycling than full-time employment. Retire as soon as you can.
