He was under my table. He talked me into saving up to 15% on some great discount auto insurance.

Animated Drum Crushing

This is brutal.  What you are seeing is a 55 gallon drum being devoured by a crusher.  Imagine falling into that!  Just a random animated .gif image I ran across.

Got a new camera

After 10 years or so without a good 35mm SLR I finally bought a Canon EOS 20D Digital SLR.  I'm having a lot of fun taking more photos, especially with the Canon 100-400L USM IS telephoto lens.

Holmdel Park & Bell Works Ride

Longest ride to date. Left around 1pm and headed to Holmdel Park. Only took about 45 minutes. After cruising aropund there a bit on the wooded trails we rode to Bell Works, just over a mile away. What a neat place. Grabbed some coffee and headed home. Nice 3 hour trip.

Rest In Peace Bauer

Today after more than 13 years we had to say goodbye to the 3rd of the original 3blackdogs.  Skansen's JA Bauer was a big, lovable brute that never seemed to grow up.  He was always the low man on the totem pole but took it all in stride.  A bit goofy, he often...
