This quote comes from none other than the great Barney Fife. He was right, and that was decades ago. This is the twenty-first century. Everything has a battery in it. I have what seems like an abnormal number of things requiring batteries that require charging. Safety isn’t easy. Ever since I was hit by aContinue reading “We Live in an Age of Electronal Marvels”

Helmet Hair: a Coiffure Odyssey
Anyone who has ever participated in an athletic activity understands the trials associated with keeping one’s coiffure in order. That’s not completely true, I guess. Golfers don’t have to wear a hat. But pretty much everyone else does. We just called it “hat hair” when wearing a ball cap. Cycling is unique among activities thatContinue reading “Helmet Hair: a Coiffure Odyssey”
I’m not sure how many times I’ve ridden in the annual bicycle ride benefitting MS research. More than ten. I think. Maybe. I just know that I rode MS150 for the first time in 2001. Maybe.

My biggest problem is I need a clear container because I’ve amassed so many items that any time IContinue reading “Do You Have One of These?”

I wanted the title to look like a headline in the newspaper. You know, like it is big news, or a revelation. Now it is EASY to lose weight. Of course! It is easy to drop pounds. Its science.

What is your point?
I’ve been asked this question a number of times, and so far, I haven’t come up with any solid answers. But let me give it a try. First, I can relate. To you. To pretty much every man ever born of a woman. I’ve been fat. I’ve been out of shape. I’ve felt sick. IContinue reading “What is your point?”
