The weird part is the end of it, helocopter pulled her body from the ocean. Huh?

Did you see the plane crash on the RR tracks and the cops pulled the guy out just seconds before a train came? A few miles from here.

The probably used the formula then. Math doesn't lie.

It seems she fell/jumped into the ocean and died. There's definitely a lot more to that story.

Holy moly! It was not that pilot's day to die. However, I think his plane is going to need a few repairs.

Midday walk complete. Zero degrees F, but the sun is out.

Two degrees here. Sun status irrelevant.

Blue skies with an expected high of 74 today. So Cal winters are rough.

Glad you were able to keep the little guy warm!

Lucky you! Me, my nose starts running as soon as the temp drops below 60. This is why I chose to be tailgunner on last Saturday's C&V ride - then I got pressed into taking point on one segment when the youngest guy gave up on what is essentially 2.5 miles of 1.5%. So there I was on the front, pulling, with my nose running, unable to courteously clear my nostrils. One can only wipe so much.

Or, they could have looked at her driver's license.

Or looked up the registration from her license plate - the CAR didn't go over the cliff, right?

Sounds legit. If I ever go missing off a cliff can you represent me?

It was terrible in NorCal this morning. 47 degrees. The car windows were all covered in dew. I had to clear them off before I could see to drive. Took at least 5 minutes for the heater to get too warm so I had to turn it down.

Thanks for the compliments on the Litespeed! It does LOOK nice! Not thrilled with the performance of the 27 year old Sachs Ergo levers, however. I'm having a hell of a time getting them to shift into the largest cog. It's a balance between tension and limit screw. Obviously I don't want to toss the chain into the spokes, but I do want to be able to use the 25. Also, I now remember why I hate triples - all my doubles, the chain climbs to the big ring or drops to the small ring without issues, but this one requires overshifting. I'm pretty sure I've got the alignment and height set correctly. So, I'm debating going for the Ultimate (haha) build earlier than planned, or possibly Interim Build #2, using the 7410 Dura Ace brakes, STIs, and RD. I'd still have to source BB, cranks, and FD, but it will be cheaper than the 6800/8000 Ultegra build I plan to eventually do.

EDIT: I probably ought to check that the hanger is properly aligned, too. Hey, it was late, and I wanted to finish it up and wrap the bars!

Again...not "unidentified". I'm just poking at the poorly written article.

You know, they could have just looked at her and said something like, "Yep, that's a good ole 40 year old California girl" and left it at that.

No, but I'll represent your wife since you'll be dead and she'll have all the money.

You might be on to something here.

Hmmm...maybe not technically a liar, but very possibly an intent to be deceptive.

you mean you're not getting any so phrantic09 shouldn't either. How comfy is the doghouse?

You're reading between the lines again, aren't you.

Working on a deal though with Bam's wife, so when he goes over a cliff and she has all the money, we can thank him for the opportunities his unfortunate demise might open.
