Nearby Vienna, NY residents their hometown's name "Vi-anna".

Would have been nice not have to pitch my tent on a muddy tent pad. The upside was that the next morning, while enjoying my coffee outside my tent, two young bald eagles had a little spat in a tree right in front of me.

This map includes a jaunt out to the grocery store and back::

Dashboard ∑ Ride with GPS

That first little climb at around mile 4.8 doesn't look like much on paper, but both times I rode it it pissed me off. I think it's because it comes as a chock after the first 4.8 miles. And when you are looking up the road, it does not look as steep as it is.

Franklin? Why, that's just a short jaunt down Rt. 322 from Meadville, where Mrs. GeneJockey and I went to college!

Yeah I woke up from the thunder at 0430, went out and stood in the rain and watched the lightning. No flooding in my neighborhood though

So you woke last night to the sound of thunder. Did you sit and wonder how far off it was?

If that's yours, that's among the best we've seen here.

I was looking online and some have said that Lazers have a similar fit, so I might have to mosey on down and try one on.

Just picked one up this spring to replace my old Specialized helmet. Love it. But reviews also say its hard to store sunglasses, but since I really never do that, it wasn't an issue for me.

So I was speaking with my nurse about how, when I was a kid, I thought a pony was a baby horse....

She said "You mean they are not?!?" (as I tried not to laugh)

Is this something even adults think??? Maybe I should I ask about this in horseforums.net, I could be a troll.

Cervelo rides amazing with the chain waxed. Super smooth and quiet. Also chose to lower the PSI from 80 to 70 and that made a pretty big difference on ride quality, especially on the colonial parkway.

As I was riding in the rain (was not supposed to rain nor was there a cloud in the sky) It occurred to me that waxing the chain on the bike that I will be riding in the rain especially in the winter is just going to be a lot more work for me. I think iíll save the waxing for the the ritchey and the madone.

When you start seeing Ponies that are only half a hand shorter than a horse you will really be scratching your head.

Awesome! Have you considered yourself to have a Specialized head prior to this? I'm fairly certain that the only helmets that I've owned in this lifetime have been Specialized; I've tried a number in the stores, but only Spec has felt just right atop my noggin.

Totally forgot that the new water meter was being installed this morning. I was naked and literally lifting one leg to step into the shower when I heard a knock upon my door. Throwing on the bare minimum of clothes to be presentable, i rushed to the front door and opened it. To my astonishment, I was greeted to the sight of a statuesque, raven-haired beauty. Even her tool belt and baggy jumpsuit could not hide her comely body. I eagerly invited her inside.....

I think I've read this before. Is this is a copy/paste from, um, an adult publication with "Forum" in the title? :lol:

I composed it myself, trying to he satirical. :D

The first three sentences are actually true. But when I was thinking about it, it did sound the beginning of something you might read in that publication.

"I was a sophomore at a large, midwestern college. I had always read stories in this magazine but had never believed they were true. That is, until the most amazing thing happened to me. I was in the laundry room of my co-ed dorm when in walked the most amazing woman I had ever seen...."
