My subscription to your monthly phone number update must have lapsed.  Can you get your current number to me somehow?

Hey Dan,

I got a great title for your next best seller; The Michelangelo Code. It's all about this professor who stumbles across some hidden meaning under the murals on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Now of course, there's at least one bizarre murder and lots of gorgeous venues and car chase scenes packed with as many well cleavaged, hot young women that you can fit into the story line. I'll only ask for my customary, very nominal 15% royalty fee.

Hi Dan- thanks for befriending me!  I like the picture of the gal in the Eastern garb with Buddha in the background.   What interested you about moi?  Peg

Yeah, I have a medium-sized box fan that's relatively quiet, so I can still listen to whatever I'm watching while I spin. Without a breeze, the heat build-up just gets oppressive.

Hi Dan, sorry i just now saw your comment.

We have a small contingent at crits, Cat 4/5 and Masters, and another crowd that mainly race at Northbrook. Our Sunday Ride is open to all, feel free to join in and meet some of the guys. We meet at Grove and Sherman in Evanston at 9am. There is a Yahoo! Group for the Turin Sunday Ride too.

Hi Dan,

Looks like they still do need volunteers at the Urbanathlon. E-mail Alli at if you're interested.
