Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

wow, you're really doing it?

so, is this 'appreciation night' going to the movie? reading from the books? ??

perhaps a ride to ravinia to see him from the lawn seats?

my favorite story of his is still the one about the chicken with its head cut off that escapes and runs around town.

I should have been specific:

Yes, we're going to the movie. I'm thinking we should get several drinks in us beforehand, those of us who have flasks should bring them to the theater.


Chimbly, did you hear about the fish that went deaf?

He had to buy a herring-aid.

Garrison Keillor is a moron. His recent screed against "American Vertigo" was utter ****.

I love Garrison Keillor. APHC has given me real insight into my inlaws who are Norwegian Lutherans from Northern Iowa. I thought it was just story-telling but as it turns out, they really do consider jello to be a salad and there's no food that can't be made into a hot dish with Campbell's cream of mushroom soup.

I hope the concession stand has some nice bowls of ketchup. It has natural mellowing agents.
