    Well at least when it breaks it's not too much work to carry it out!

    I am unaware of the significance of 4/20....if it does involve either speedos or banana hammocks, then I for one shall pass.
    No safety for me this evening, but FLAME ON for the BBQ!!!!! see ya tomorrow.

    Very easy to do with Google Earth actually. The elevation change from downtown campus to my house is 233m-101m. With the distance to campus that works out to about .04% average gradient uphill from downtown.

    The Yonge st./York Mills section is about 3.6% @ 800m. I remember there was another "hill" just pass the bridge north of Rosedale at Yonge but I can't specifically remember. Of course I have no idea what the resolution of the data google is using but it is fairly accurate.

    Speaking of bad grammar: Here is a note from a bank robber.

    “Do as this note tells you to do. Don’t make me hurt no one. Cause if you do you will be this frist one I hurt. Just give me the money. Don’t give me no dye pack in it or any tracer in the money. Don’t be a fool and start any probelms. Don’t pull no alarms till I am out of here. Thank you have a nice day Merry Xmas 100's, 50s, 20s, 10s & 5's only. No 1s or change. Hurry up don’t be stalling me. I am not dumb. It only takes seconds.”

    How do you figure out elevation on Google Earth?

    The bottom bar on the screen shows you the elevation and geographic coordinates. If it's not visible do a view-> show status bar.

    Anyone know an approximate cost of replacement heel pads for Sidi shoes? Also, are they all the same, or do I need specific ones for specific shoes?

    So I had to take the dog to the vet yesterday at Queen West Animal Hospital and guess who had re-opened and was attempting to not only to sell "his" merchanise but also every bike locked up anywhere close to Trinity Bell Woods...

    I thought our old friend had finally closed up shop but I guess I was wrong...

    Yep he was out there in full force. There was one guy looking at buying a bike and then he peered into the shop and you could see the look of fear on his face... It's so damn scary in there.
