    no you dumbass. rubbing the abdomen along the route of the colon. it is so good if you have any GI issues. it is now part of my pre-ride routine. try it.

    About to set off for our first 100km ride in several years. It's a recce for a nouveau type of event in a couple of weeks, just to see if we can make the required minimum average time. It's a pretty part of the world and Machka should be stopping often for pictures.

    don't get too excited and keep your big clothes. i've been there and back and there and back and there and back...you get the picture.

    ...I massage my colon as part of my riding by concentrating on my muscle use and focusing on the stuff in front (abdominal groups).

    It works for me, but I also do some 15 or 20 minutes of yoga stretching at the turnaround.

    A lot of people don't use the core abdominals effectively as part of their pedaling stroke.
    For those guys, much of what is doing the work is the gluteals and the lower back muscles groups,
    and it's not good for you as a steady diet.

    Seems to support the logic I see used in the comment section of every news story written when a cyclist is hit and badly hurt or killed.

    we got about an inch. it was in the single digits yesterday, yet the sun was warm enough to cause some melting that filled in a bunch of spots i'd chipped clear. it promptly froze. ****. i'm beginning to understand why the other tenant gave up maintaining it.

    Long day in Cresskill NJ helping to move my 90 year old terminally ill Dad and my 85 year old stepmother back into their home. The house was crushed by a falling tree last October, they have been staying in a nearby one bedroom apartment since then, in the meantime my Dad was diagnosed with two inoperable cancers, so the stress of being out of their home has only compounded the nightmare. My Dad has only weeks left (we figure he's down from 180 to about 110 lbs) but he is not in pain, and the move back made him so happy (and of course my stepmother). He was quite alert after dinner and we got to spend some quality time together as a family, probably the last time we'll all be able to do that (most of us were there, two of my three stepbrother and their wives, my brother Graham's two grown kids Scott and David). We really all pulled together to support them over the past couple of months, all made efforts to get them back into their home my March 1 (which involved some pushing and prodding of contractors and town officials). We were there breaking up and moving frozen solid snow from the driveway, reassembling shattered bedrooms, etc. But in the end the house looked better than ever (it's a very modest 60+ year old postwar colonial that badly needed the new interior paint and carpets that this mini-disaster wound up providing).

    Reminded me of why I love my extended family and how much it has all meant to us over the 40 years they have been married. I was 16 when they married, I wound up with three stepbrothers, Graham who is 5 years older, Keith a year older and Greg a year younger. And we have stayed close as an extended family for four decades through thick and thin. It was great. My Dad is so happy to be home, he said to somebody today: 'Now I can die' - in other words he feels at home, and that's how it should be.

    Hard for the family emotionally, still it was a good day for all of us today. We all love him so much. But he's dying with much love and support around him. Most 90 year olds die alone, and thinking of that makes me sad. I'm sorrowful about my Dad but happy that he feels so loved. Only if you're lucky now, as in the Ryan Adams song, which seems to be about getting old, feeling strange, and breaking hearts.


    I'm sorry to read that, Pete. Still it's nice to hear how much love there is. Kind thoughts for you and your family.
