Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Ooh, I guess Buffalo got the red sun treatment. Is that a Toronto Blue Jay? Did they go back to Canada yet?

Was red here as well. So was the moon.

It was really nasty here last night until we had some T-storms come through.

It may have when it got lower in the sky. Too many building in my area to see it once it gets below a certain height.

My throat got a little irritated while walking home from work. At some point I realized I had left my phone at the office. No way was I going back to get it.

But, you generally don't see more than six in a lawn; they're not especially social.

Tell that to the two dozen or more who congregate in the big tree across the creek from me.

That has not been my experience. Mass murder happens in my front yard on a regular basis.

I always figured those names for groups of animals were some cutesy Edward Gorey-type stuff that someone made up in the not too distant past. I find it suspicious that they are more often recited than used.

I sometimes wonder how olde those terms are too. I'd like to think they've been around since the 18th century, but you never know.

Somehow I wound up electroplating for a year and a half and that occupation is riddled with terminology that surely must date back to the days of alchemy.

And then there's sailing...

Haven't they changed the name yet? I reckon there will be a settlement, but if not I vote for Neptunes.

Oh N/M, they're just mad about the name of the stadium restaurant.
