Pondering a world of possibilities, thinking of where to go now and into the new year. Damnit I'm hungry. Trying to redirect the thought process. Either buy a new bike or repair the one you have.
Ahh and the fun of the timer going off to V for Vendetta 1812 Overture. What A finale 2 Hours at a time how much fun can it be.

You can Vote Here And Happy New Year!

The roads were a mess today, ice everywhere. Schools are closed tomorrow too. So no riding tomorrow outside either.

It's all your fault too. You're the one that wished for snow.

That's true, definitely won't have to turn the hose on those two.

I may try a subtle introduction here in a minute.

Yes! Much fun. Then again, I'm somewhat insane to like such things, so here's a grain of salt for ya.

mirona, that's the hardest responsibility a pet owner has. I haven't had to do that in seven years, and dangit I still miss that dawg. I'ts better to put your pet down when it is time than prolong it's suffering.

I've got a head-cold. And I am seriously contemplating moving to New Mexico this April. I have family there and have been thinking this might be a good point in my life to start fresh somewhere warmer. I really like New Mexico when I visited the year before last, so I'm really leaning towards moving out there. No kids, no wife and currently...no job. Seems like a good time to pick up and move.

Besides fighting a cold and the cold temperatures (says 27 degrees) out right now...I'm getting ready to put my 2005 Trek up for sale on ebay next week, as wel as my TT bike. Need cash for the move! haha

Go for it!

Without much in the way of roots despite having lived here all my life, I'd love to just pack up and move to a new state on a whim. Sounds like fun to me.

Time to pack up, have dinner with my parents, and head back to SD. It's been a fun break.

Nice avatar, VV!

I am really so sorry to hear that, Mirona...When I lost Magic Cat, it was so tough, and then I went out and kept adopting more cats...Laurie the cat sitter promptly told me that three was her limit and it's been a lot of fun with them...

Things will get better...

Ok, Foo, I must get me to bed. I'm on back-up duty to get Eboo to the airport tomorrow morning very early. Polara is sick, and I told him that if he wakes up at 4:30am and doesn't feel up to driving, I'll be glad to do it.

Night! <slinkin' off to bed in pink jammies>

Waiting for an email from my realtor after we had a little chat on the phone about some concerns I was having. Think things are straightened out now Though to be fair there's no huge panic, I can't close for 3 months at which point I will have to get my mortgage approved again (the preapproval I got is only valid for 90 days, odds are things won't work out quite that neatly), but I'm pretty sure rates are going down so that may work out for the better.

Sorry to hear about your loss Mirona
