    Happy Ending

    Here is why I love being a foster for DSDA. Martha and I have had some of the mange dogs in our home after they were on the road to recovery. Here is a story of one such pup. We just had to share Jax (fka #dsdamrsnuggles) in his TUX at his parents' wedding last weekend! This gorgeous boy was one of three pups found 3 years ago (after being dumped in the woods near a lake) by a young lady who advocated for their rescue and was to become a DSDA volunteer. The unsocialized pups were covered in sarcoptic mange (the super itchy kind) and ringworm. But because we had an experienced foster willing to take them in and give them a chance we were able to accept the pups into our organization. Hence, #dsdajoey, #dsdamrsnuggles & #dsdagrace! All were nursed back to health and adopted into amazing families. We love it when we hear back from our adopters. Seeing Jax in his tuxedo & part of his parents' wedding is pretty special - especially since his transformation was so extreme. If you want to help turn a homeless pup's life around visit www.dsda.org/foster for more information!
  2. I think this is a clearwing. Maybe not. Anyone want to hazard a guess? Anyone have an educated opinion? I was supposed to be moving rocks for two new garden beds. Instead, I spent like 20 minutes watching this guy.
  3. We were well into the petroleum era before there was widespread realization that we effed up the atmosphere. Although interestingly, I have recently read stories that the science was discovered like 100 years ago. So it was a tall order indeed for humans to forego the convenience of petroleum living. Can we possibly imagine the alternate reality that could have been had we been fully aware of where the incessant burning of fossil fuels would lead? I have always thought a low energy existence would have been cool. Like during COVID, no scurrying aboot and sitting in traffic jams. Sure, we need heating and some cooling, although we definitely overdo it in the cooling side. And I spose it is not really helpful to reflect on what could have been, but it would still be interesting to see if it could have been possible to navigate a more sustainable path for civilization. Hard to make a case for us being the most advanced civilization when the world existed for a long long time before we became petroleum addicts. Disclaimer: This diatribe was inspired by some early morning doom scrolling where there was an article aboot Miami Beach. That the Greenland ice sheet is snot only melting but is getting covered in soot that darkens it so it is way less heat reflective. Signed, Debbie Downer BTW, I was quite awed by flying over the Greenland ice sheet a few years ago so I feel emotionally attached to it now. And effit, I am going to flag this as an IP, self-indulgent as that may be.
  4. Left the house at 7:40 to take Ryan to camp. 3 hours driving. Had a 12 o’clock meeting that ran almost 2 hours with adult troop leaders. Got an oil change and inspection on the Chrysler. Had an hour and a half meeting with the Senior Patrol Leader of the Scout Troop. Went to tire store to have a screw taken out of tire. Went to liquor store. I am home. The bar is open.
  5. What the hell is up with Pogacar's hair always sticking up through his helmet?
  6. ...at the end. I think some guy or other will win, but some others will languish unexpectedly and there may be a crash or two.
  7. I don't, can't really see the value in it. I am open to having my mind changed, but it will be difficult.
  8. I think tomorrow will be Thursday
  9. Fake Honey Nut Clusters are very high at 15%! And fake Cheerios are very low at 0%. Quite a variation.
  10. My legs hung out over the end of the heart cath table about a foot. They asked me how tall I was.
  11. ...and am being SUPER productive today! WOOT WOOT WOOT!!!!
  12. Last night, I finished a book on my Kindle - a book I got "free" from Amazon First Reads months ago and finally started a couple weeks ago. This morning, I got an e-mail from Amazon saying, "What to read after Spellbreaker". Seriously? It is letting Amazon know when I finish a book on my Kindle. I get that it stays connected via wifi because it always offers new book ideas and requests you to rate a finished book, but this is a first with this type of message. I guess I can stick it into airplane mode most of the time, but even so, it will surely check in any time I am on wifi again. @dennis probably runs into this sort of thin a lot!
  13. So, I googled it, and apparently you can just slice these things and eat them - raw! Who knew? Anyway, I just washed them and sliced them, but now I'm exhausted!
  14. ...with the azzclown "tinkering" in his garage. So effing awful. Just stupid and it really ought to be banned!
  15. ...is what I call it, and figure this section can use a new topic Anyway, it's the standard seen-it-a-million-times sort of thing that most cyclist have dealt with. On one hand, there is the traditional "lost in thought" getting passed that awakens you again and you reassess your pace. For me, that happens when I zone out for a little bit, and if I do get caught and passed, I quickly do the calculation to see if I am happy at my current speed/effort or if I could ramp it up and enjoy it more. In any case, though, I don't ride up behind a guy and the punk pass him at a sprint. If the fellow is riding a good pace, I'll settle in a distance behind him to get the "carrot" effect but also no slipstream/draft. That makes the ride still a workout of my choosing but uses another rider as a good incentive to keep the pace up. If the fellow is riding at a good but not great pace, I'll mosey up behind them, wait for a stretch of clear road, pass & say howdy, and then continue the pass. This leaves an opportunity for them to sit on my wheel if they like, ride beside me, or just drop off. The ones that bother me are the pass someone, have them draft (or stalk) me waiting for the chance to sprint past a while later. Odd behavior and pretty asocial. Anyway, with my rear camera in play, it is fun to actually see how things percolate once a pass is made. This mash-up shows me rolling up on a guy, passing him, him disappearing into the distance behind me, and then, as I slow behind a different guy to cross a DANGEROUS intersection, passed guy uses our slowing and our break in the traffic to make his move I just let him go, reel him in as the traffic on the trail clears, and then do my favorite azzclown move of sitting on his wheel for the last mile or two relaxing the whole way. Good clean fun. Anyway, my editing sucks and the light was tough for the front cam, but you'll get the point.
  16. Bicycle insurance? Just read somewhere else someone asking about it. People seriously get insurance for their bicycle? Seriously?
