    Better than me, creme caramel today. Close to tasting Mayo in terms of fun. Next week is better, merange cookies and then breakfast day on Wednesday, bacon, sausages, eggs, homefries. Going to keel over after that teaching that day.

    Dan, excellent hookup with house of Dumplings, goint to start my unit on meat by doing beef and pork dumplings with spinach and black mushrooms.

    50lb hips of beef turn me on.

    Miscellaneous/unsorted replies:

    1. Thanks for the tips on hills.. plenty of recommendations to keep me busy for a while.

    2. I was at urbane a few weeks ago and asked about half-links for 3/32 -- they had them for a few bucks.

    3. Good luck to all writing exams.

    I thought it was a great movie, more similar to Judge's beavis and butthead work than office space..

    To wake up at 6:45....take the garbage out and see snow....... oh the inhumanity of it all. Hopefully things will dry up. 40/60kph gusting from the northwest....urgh.

    I do have a few half-links...I got em from Misfits at the bike show. Do you want to replace both crank arms or just the right? I have a Sakae (bad ju-ju?) CX right in 170 that you can have for $10...I have a 110 44t ring for it...that is new and $38. Nothing in 144 unfortunately.

    My bad for not reading the whole novel about your problem. I am sure that none of the numerous bike shop employees or home mechanics here would have one you could use/borrow. I hope the method Cam suggested works for you. Engarde Mr Snarkypants

    i just had a thought: those fencing mask-helmet things would be great for wearing on the bike. keep bugs out on humid summer days, uv protection, identity protection and that stealthy, ninja look ala jeff goldblum in the fly.

    That's all anyone not in the know knows. Anyone in the know ain't tellin' least I hope not. Supposedly a casino late afterwards at the afterparty.... I don't know where. Oh this'll be fun...anyone looking for a second? I've been told Bag, Lock, Helmet. I'm iffy as to my scavenging abilities , but looking forward to it, 10buks for the fund for the race.

    Helmet, hrmm might have to go home and drop mine. Keith I think I'll be dropping by with MTB this afternoon hopefully its a quick easy fix on it. This wind is brutal, going west is roughly equivalent to pulling teeth.

    I absolutely flew into work today. I guess raising my bars by 3 inches made more more like a sail.

    I just spent 3 hours being furious at a stack of energy grant applications. I let these things get to me too much I think...

    I like my clients, I just don't like the other sides clients. Always demanding stuff. "You cut off my foot with an axe. Give me money".

    That has never happened, but you never know what might happen tomorrow.
