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!
