I got a great bike

And DC in the fall (even with muted drought-affected colors) is an awesome place to cycle. Trails everywhere. Along every stream and river by every soccer field, dog park and par course. Around bird-watching ponds, from beyond the beltway down tot he mall. And most of them are flat.

Gorgeous weather. Finally.

I'm going to have awesome thighs and a tight butt before you know it.

What kind of bike DQ?

we've been looking for a couple of good ones. I really don't like those thin seat ones, they're a pain in the...you know.

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Yeah, my butt is sore. And other places.

But my seat isn't all that skinny.They sell gel-seats now that replace any bike seat or you can get thick covers that have gel. I might try one.

I got a Trek and it was a bit pricey but the gears are a dream. I've always sucked at changing gears . . . They had models with shock absorbers but I went for the more light-weight speedy one. Now I'm buying baskets and locks and lights and exploring the whole world of merchandising for the cyclist. At least I'm not supporting Wal Mart. A bike store is a great small business. And there are lots of hot guys and tattooed fems at the one near me.

The reflection of the sky in the water

is beautifully enhanced by the silhouette of the trees in between. The white swirl of clouds untouched by the color surrounding it is really unusual.

This picture was taken in the fall of 2005. I thought that although the color was not intense that the geometrical patterns of the clouds made it unusual.

Last week

Thames at night:

I could stare at that one for hours Greg

It's wonderfully hypnotic.

I made it a click through to higher res for higher hypno for you. That's Westminster Abbey on the left, Big Ben/Parliament next, with the new "London Eye" ferris wheel on the right. We were in London for a wedding. By coincidence a friend from Morehead City who lives in London was having a wedding anniversary celebration on a boat on the Thames. We slipped out of the wedding reception to surprise them. This was the view.

Stunning Greg

what a treat that must have been and friends to enjoy it with to boot.

So many beautiful

So many beautiful sunsets.

And our next Senator is gay.

The things that'll get you to register for a political blog...

Glad we finally came up with the right combination

to bring you on board. :)

I deleted the entire post from the MySpace guy

I've deleted only one other post in the past 20 months. This guy clearly passed the test of being "intolerably obnoxious."

Oh damn...I would have loved to caught up with what else he had

to say. I ate my wheaties just so's I could take him on.

I actively oppose gerrymandering. Do you?

At 6:19 the results haven't changed at all

after I just voted no.

What's wrong with their counter?

Have you called to support H. Res 333 Impeach Cheney Today? call 202-224-3121 & ask for your Congress member by name

Finally, Congressman Miller will appear on a different topic tomorrow morning -- his bill to address predatory lending practices -- on C-SPAN's Washington Journal from 8:00-8:30 a.m. EST. He will be interviewed for the first 5-7 minutes and then viewers can call in and ask him questions about his bill.

I am so glad I get to vote for him.
