My Old Man vs Bear

This is a repost from what my father just sent me. I’m glad he and his dog are okay, and I’m also glad he wasn’t cited in this incident: A homeowner in Lake City shot and killed a bear on Sept. 27 – but it was a shooting that Colorado Division of Wildlife officers say […]

All Geared Up and Ready to Go

Things work out if you give life enough time and something to work with. I found out today why Wachovia (my bank from 1995 on, when they were First Union) hadn’t called me back this week regarding my motorcycle loan. They denied it. I had to wrest this information out from another loan officer, the […]

A Small Worlds Post: (sort of) Ex-Co-Workers Father on AMC

Alexa’s ex-co-worker’s father hosts Movies 101 on AMC. The show is new this season (as far as I can tell), and the host Richard Brown is a film professor at NYU with more than 30 years of teaching experience. The first guest will be Martin Scorcese. I know there are film fans who read this […]

It’s a great week for new family members!

Lady Jaye and I have been searching for a companion for our buddy Porter for the last four months. The Richmond area has tons of hound dogs and pit bull type dogs. There’s nothing wrong with those types of dogs, but they’re not the cuddly little snugglemonsters we’re looking for. After two weeks of emailing, […]

Put this book in your Go Bag

As you know, I have been suffering from a reading slump. I can’t seem to finish the books that I start. My buddy is an avid reader and gamer. She loves scifi, fantasy, and zombies, and as such our interests intersect quite frequently. So when she suggested Meghann Marco’s Field Guide to the Apocalypse I […]

$100 closer to a dream

I was on my way back from Maryland today. I picked up Monty from Alexa and was stuck in traffic — three cars decided to take on a gas tanker, and all southbound traffic was shut down on I-95. On a whim, I called Jarman’s Sport Cycles of Charlottesville, Virginia. Bond bought his R6 from […]

XM Radio review

Today’s Gibberish will feature a guest source, our own Lady Jaye. I installed an XM Radio Roady2 receiver in her car almost two weeks ago. She’s gone to work and back and all around in the meantime, and has given the XM channel lineup a decent work out. Usage: How’s that Roady2 workin’ out fer […]

MSF Course Day 3: “I thought you were hauling ass”

Yesterday was my final day in the Motorcycle Safety Foundation beginner’s course. We were such a good class during day two that we jumped ahead in the timetable and did an extra drill on Saturday. That gave us more time to practice for the riding skills test at the end of our Sunday’s session. We […]
