Kenton, are you going to get the goat? is there a way of cooking it on the grill... or we can use the oven , but Chimbly needs to bake too.

I would love to smoke a whole goat (is that what the kids are calling it?) but maybe a later date. Otherwise, there is always lamb roast from Costco, or whatever. Kenton, please call or write and we'll make this happen!

usually on volunteer nights we clean up/organize the shop, make the old campy/super-maxy/dura ace parts nice and sparkly and put them on display, and talk about the pros/cons of running a bike shop like a non-profit rather than as a biz-ness. also, we usually rummage for parts for our own bikes (or maybe i'm just speaking for myself), and fix up remaining projects. it's cool. But i guess it won't happen again until after The Big Move. Here's hoping that goes well. And that the new place is goat free.

I'll bring a copy of Repo Man. If you've got the cables,I'll burn a copy of those bike vids and we can run them from your laptop. Or does your DVD player handle mpgs?

In Washington district right in the corner of New York Avenue, Florida street and O street, a huge farmers' market now flourishes, selling mainly African food. From Amala to Gari and Iyan as well as other condiments to cook the soup to eat these Nigerian dishes with. African families now come to this market, buy a full goat or sometimes a full cow and share right there in the market.

Does this place really exist?

Nope, for the same reason I' haven't come to crap lately, it's always on a busy night for me. Thursday through Sunday I'm almost always busy. The first half of the week when everybody stays home is when I like to get things done.
