I will agree that at least in the winter it seems its always a head wind. Even when it is a dead flat calm.

Right now I'm trying to decide, Mt. Agamenticus or Pease. Not gonna do the beach today.

Regular doctor. He gave me like butribol or something. I can't remember. I get crazy horrible migraines, and as luck would have it I woke up with pressure on my right eye, and had another migraine. Just getting over it now.

There are some good meds out there to help prevent migraines and to stop them once they start.

Good luck, Pheard. I've had em but not anywhere near as bad as my wife has them, and I'm sure not as bad as you.

Yea the meds I use will stop the precursors like the blurry eyes and such, but then a half an hour later I get the headache anyways. So it does tone it down.

So I'm at my mothers house today helping them move furniture after a renovation and we're in the garage and I notice that they have alot of road bikes that they dont use so I asked about it. They told me that one of them was mine it's a schwinn Traveler from when I was a kid so they tell me even though I dont really remember the bike. It's in almost pristine condition for its age. Looks like I have a road bike again.it looks like this:

Citigroup also deems that the expectation of RMB appreciation and the inflow of hot money is one of the main reasons for liquidity outflow in the current Chinese market, as well as the ultimate cause of the new round of overheated investment. Overflow of liquidity deprives China’s initiative power for domestic currency policy tool and the easiness in time, which made the domestic macro economic policy to become subservient to the foreign exchange policy. In this sense, for the further exchange reform takes place the earlier, the more control we can exercise on economy.
AAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!
