Technical Difficulties


Sorry about the lack of posts the last few weeks, I have been suffering technical difficulties.  Namely, a VERY dead hard disk in my laptop.  It died 2 weeks ago, so I repaired it, and it summarily died again 2 days later.  So I dumped it on the vendor and went on vacation for a week.

Now that I am back in the office, I have it back and am slowly getting it back up and running. The downside, is that I use client side tools for my blogging, and without the laptop, no updates.

Oh well. 

With summer winding down, the kids are getting ready to go back to school, I find myself wondering where the summer went. I did not get nearly the free time I expected this summer, and that translates to alot of 'functional' rides and few 'recreational'.  I cannot complain really.  Living where we do, even the commute includes some great recreational sites and roads to ride.

This weekend, I was riding to to Lowe's to pick up a could of items I needed for a project around the house.  On the way, I had to stop to get this picture on the phone. This is a small group of wild turkeys just wandering near the road.  It is, in many ways, sights like these that keep me riding.  I find that on the bike, I feel more connected and exposed than in the car.  This in turn prompts me to see things like this, whereas in the car, I just blitz on by.
