Would anyone want to take in a small dog?  I found him last night.  He's been starved and abused, but hasn't barked once and doesn't bite.  Looks like a mix with some Jack Russell in him.  The owner…Continue

"Just an example of how NOT to lock up a bike. I bet the two cables werre easier to cut than the one padlock.  This morning, there's a bike in that spot with the same blue cable and a U-lock."

Awesome are you going to the NorthSide Critical Mass this Friday?

It's like I'm psychic or something. The letters are starting to come fast and furiously, with big chunks of letters being added in one fell swoop! "Woodpecker." [snicker]

Are you going to keep on adding letters to your last name?

Here's a link to the page with my link to the bike registry chain, and my photo of it. The link now goes to "product not found," and a search of their e-store looks like they're out of the bike lock business. You might want to contact them directly to see where it went.

Any word on the bar night this month? Does Julie always schedule that? I moved Critical Lass this month so I could be ready for drinking on the 15th, dammit.

John--

Hope you didn't stay out on the sidewalk at the bar all night!  I ended up riding the entire way back to Evanston--made it in about a half hour or so.  See you on another ride!
