Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

When I'm a professional working musician, you idiots better treat me with a little more deference and respect.

Pcad reminds me of my great-grandfather when he was still around. He'd shuffle into the room, mumble something completely off topic, yell at everyone, and then shuffle back out.

Dementia sucks.
