Good thing you insured her. I haven't seen any boxes yet. I should have told you about the shipping nightmare we had with our daughter, before you packed your little one up. She's getting big! I bet she's showing you all the fragile and dangerous things that need moved up 3 feet from the floor.

Are you moving too? We'll be moving in a couple of weeks, so we are busy packing up and living uncomfortably. Our home was a small bungalow, about 900 sq feet (not as nice as your bungalow). It didn't take long to get overrun with toys.

She sure looks happy to embark on that journey!

Seriously, cardboard boxes make the BEST toys for kids.

We brought our Beagle Molly to our town's annual Fair on the Square, uncertain how she'd do. We knew she was good with kids, but within minutes every kid on the square had descended upon her to get a turn petting her.

Beagles are such good dogs. Your girls are growing fast.

For sure. It's like having a puppy. We're not moving, that was the box to her new car seat. We're having a blast as she started riding in the bike trailer just over a week ago.

The absolute best for sure. I think second place might belong to plastic food storage containers.

Back from a holiday in Herereferdershire-er (Herefordshire), Sunny every single day non-stop. Around 30C (86 Fahrenheit), too hot for a Scot. Unfortunately I couldn't take my bike, although the roads would have been perfect, very flat but windy. Anyway here are a few photos from Yat rock in Symonds Yat East, great views. Peregrine Falcons were nesting there so I got to see one fight of some other Hawk, the go at a fair pace.

Hi.
I'm new.
She just stares at me like this all the time. If only she had working brakes. Whelp, only a matter of days 'til she's disassembled for powder coat and rebuild. Then many a happy riding day shall occur. Every day. Just like the old days.


On a side note...steel calipers are not a good thing to have in Florida. No matter how well you think you dried them, the rain will catch up to ya.

The MGB in Aidan's post reminded me to post the pictures of this recently restored 1968 MGB-GT:





I did the original rebuild of the car in 1976 and owned it through 1982. My brother has it now and just had it completely re-done. He'll never sell it for what he's got in it (sound familiar!) Sorry for the poor pictures, the car is crammed in a small one car garage.

Anyway, I was able to drive it again for the first time since 1982 last week What a hoot! Brought me back to my high school days. Wire wheels, British Racing Green and SU Semi-Downdraft carburetors, it doesn't get much better than that!

The 34th America's Cup challengers series started last Sunday in San Francisco Bay and I had the opportunity to be there for the first "race". Race is in quotes because only one boat showed up; Team New Zealand. Italy's Luna Rossa sat this one out to protest a rules change they objected to. These are amazing boats capable of blistering speeds.

Here is Team New Zealand's AC72 preparing to get underway:

Wow, that is b-e-a-utiful. Everything looks better in British racing green. Great looking car, looks like it would be a hoot to drive.

Some work with my son, replaced his skritchy BB (on his 86 Team Fuji) with a shiny OEM Suntour Superbe Pro...SO nice to work with NICE bits as opposed to bottom of the barrel, CHEAP bits...NICE ChroMo Spindle Bolts...the 27 yr old Suntour bolt looks almost as good as the NEW ones....Quality lasts! Replacement went smooth, I tried to let him do most of it, but had to step in from time to time. At 14, he is catching on to the finer points of wrenching, but being one handed, he sometimes needs another hand.

Sweet! This is what I call a Zombie Apocalypse Bike (ZAB). It's what you need when things get bad and you need to bug out. Its a well known fact Zombies hate bicycles.
