    It was a film about Thaddeus Kosciuszko and his role in the Revolutionary War. I kept thinking that some former Forumite would have enjoyed it, but I can't think of who it was.

    We've been moving him out of his apartment to assisted living for the past couple of months. Here's some of what we found. There were 10 large boxes sealed up and said "Do Not Open Until Dec 10". Most were filled with about 50 lbs of books. He had bed bugs in 2010 and starving the bugs is a way to kill them. Still the boxes hadn't been opened in 9 years. He has enough nail clippers for each finger and toe plus a few extra. Still his nails are way too long. He has over 20 belts and all but 2 have never been used. Over 100 ties. He was taking out books and DVDs from 4 different libraries and not returning them. He really doesn't read and his DVD player was broken. Same goes with the NY Times paper. He subscribed to it but the papers were never read. They were neatly stacked. He had over 10 radios for a small apartment. Also 4 sets of pots and pans but didn't cook. He didn't turn on his AC even though he lived on the top floor of a south-facing building. He also didn't open his windows because there was a funeral home next door and that freaked him out. I could go on and on. It's good that we were able to get rid of a lot of crap plus now the assisted living facility will keep him fed and on his meds. Now we just need to get his finances straightened out as bes possible.

    Mad bike skills story

    I just heard this from a friend. On Saturday, she was riding her road bike with some friends. Going 40 mph on a descent and hits a stick in the road, no way to avoid it. The impact causes her to bounce of the saddle and hit the top tube with her hoohah. Cracked the carbon top tube but she managed to keep the bike upright and get to the side of the road. Needed 20 stitches in the hoohah region. I was the only one who heard the tale to compliment her on her bike handling skills. I didn’t ask to see the stitches cause I’m a gentleman.

    July 9 miles and such

    Morning ride on the Cross County Trail. Rode from home at 5:15 and rode south to Lake Accotink. Monday’s storm that dumped 4 inches of rain in one hour flooded Accotink Creek pretty good. Logs destroyed the railings on one bridge (no pics). Debris floated over one railing and dropped, blocking the trail as it goes under Little River Turnpike. The sunrise and mist is from the Mountain Bike park at Wakefield.

    You also know better than this. Little Debbies' (sp) peanut butter bars 'eaten' daily over a long period of time was my problem.

    Is it cow or horse poop? If so it probably was vegan. My first Aussie loved fresh horse poop. my god I couldn’t keep her out of it... So freaking nasty...

    Lunch beer

    I’m still trying to do this retirement thing right even if I have to spend most of my time taking car of my wife (who I love very much and would do anything for). I drove to Meadville this morning for a full body massage at 8am. I came home and worked in the garden for a bit before I made lunch. I had a Victory brewing company Sour Monkey Tripel 9.5% alcohol with my grilled chicken salad. Fruity notes from Imported Belgian yeast swirl through a precise souring. Pucker up to a citrus laden tang ending with a delectable experience. Now I’m floating in the pool.

    Do you pay 1.5x as much as normal sized folks? Seems like the massage therapist must have to do a lot of extra work AND shell out for the extra long massage table.

    Well the foundation is complete

    If you’re not building a shed on your platform I don’t know why you need a platform. Throw a tarp down on the ground, the earth can easily hold 36,000 lbs. You need to keep going and build a woodshed. Smudge can give you pointers if you get stuck.

    I saw it too, so I thought it was an old post. But it wasn't. So I was confused. I didn't want to overreact and scare him away.

    Not in parts of Utah and remote areas of Texas. In Arkansas you are married to one woman, but she is still your cousin or sister, so sorta two women.

    Lance didn't just lied, he out right destroyed people's lives. That's why he doesn't deserve air time. He's really cruel and mean spirited human.

    I hated in the old forum how easy it was to see spoilers, often in thread titles in the LF. But with a pro cycling sub forum, in July, with threads marked TDF Spoiler, it’s easy to know where not to go if you haven’t seen a stage and don’t want to know the results.

    More from the 4th. As a little history, the city gives us free use of the Community Center (typically reserved for $150/day) for photo club meetings and in return, we support city activities such as 4th of July Fireworks, making the photos available to the public. I won't post pictures of kids on rides, but parents know how to get the photos. Gives us access to genre of photography (events in this case) that normally would not do, and special permissions such setting up past the police line for an open direct view and away from the parking lot lights where the public was.

    My parents backyard. The dammed lake is low because there is a hole in the dam being repaired. It will come back up a few feet when it’s done.
