    Very likely. There's not a lot of roles for three-legged wolves these days.

    Walt Disney can come up with something. 9 year old little girl lost in the woods gets adopted and protected by a 3-legged wolf who has to fight off 4 grizzly bears then curl up and keep her warm though the sub-zero night and catch fish in the frozen river in the morning to feed her before girl is rescued.

    I'll flesh that out a bit and give you a cut when the producer is ready to start.

    I feel your pain. I lost my all-time favorite pooch at 10 y/o back in '08, and occasionally I still wonder whether or not I had missed her morning dose of the medicine that was literally keeping her alive. But at one time it haunted me almost constantly.

    At some point the pain and the guilt will fade . . . the mind has an amazing ability to heal itself. Hang in there.

I don't think that it's problematic right now, but I'd rather be proactive, I guess.
    yes. my skeleton is screwed up. I use custom made orthotic inserts and try not to let my cadence drop below 77rpm. I prefer 165mm cranks. so-far it is working. I don't have knee pain walking, hiking or cycling. I probably need to look into some exercises to balance the muscles though. I do alternate my riding between regular bikes and recumbents. they use different muscle groups. It may help.

    No way. Let it out. This is where we come when our dogs die.

    No need to second guess. It's over now. Time to heal, albeit slowly. Go ride that SS.

    This thread has lost a lot of dogs. Very sad.

    In other news, construction altered my ride home. Forced to change suddenly, I chose a route with some crappy ass roads. I started thinking about skewers. If I went into one of those potholes and my front skewer failed, I might break my face.

    I have Campy, Reynolds, Zipp, Enve, and KCNC skewers. The ones that inspire the least confidence are the new KCNCs at 40g. In a stunning display of WW ambivalence, I switched to the 61g Enve skewers.

    Heathpack does not condone the use of earbuds while cycling.

    I've never ridden with music. 2 am outside of Greeley, I probably should have.

    @WhyFi, can you repeat your instructions on how to get a large image from Flickr/Photostream. I had promised to review my TRP RRL levers for March Addiction, as a follow up to the "meaningful dialogue" in Addiction plan, and I want a weekend distraction. But small photos may get me shunned.

    Flickr keeps shuffling things around, but what you're looking for is the page with all sizes of the photo.

    • Without having to sift through their current UI, you could just append the URL for your chosen photo with "/sizes/l" which should give you an address like "http://www.flickr.com/photos/RollCNY/13060779365/sizes/l"
    • That should bring you to the right page and display the Large 1024 photo (I usually use 1024 because it's big enough and some sites don't like it when you use anything larger - if you want to use a different size, just select it from the options and wait for the page to load).
    • At this stage, you can finally right-click on the photo and select "Copy Image URL" (or however your browser words it).
    • Come back here, paste the image url and put the IMG brackets around it like this -[img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7311/13060779365_9d83b4b387_b.jpg[/img]


    ...and you should be good to go.
