Well the weather is much better the snow is just about gone, which only means one thing. Time to get the car out and go for a drive. Hopefully I can get a drive in before I head to Florida.

Yep I am heading to Florida, for the first time in my life I am traveling to a warmer place during winter. Coincidentally it’s going to be in the 60’s while I am gone, so not much of a change for me. Though everyone knows I prefer colder temps. Well as I may have written I became reacquainted with a lady I dated last year. It turns out she has moved last October. So we got to talking which turned into an offer to come down to Florida and I could stay with her. Now immediately people are thinking “your going to get some leg for sure”. Well that is not my thought at all, I am not that naive to think that an invite “comes with sex”. I have slept next to women and nothing happened, I think mature single people can do that. I do NOT condone that married people sleep next to a single friend, maybe when your 80 🙂 . This lady and I have had no previous physical encounters other than a kiss. We did have a good time, we have been bike riding, gambling and been to the movies. So we shall see what happens while I am there this weekend.

Well on to other things, irritations. Civil servants (or as I like to think UNcivil servants) who get in trouble getting “On leave with pay”. I am sorry but whoever dreamed this up ought to be electrocuted. It’s no wonder these adrenaline junkies think they are above everyone else and the badge just compounds this thinking. How about your FIRED and when and IF your found innocent then you will be reinstated and you receive back pay. These people are supposed to be examples for the rest of us, yet I rarely see a turn signal, parking in “No Parking” areas, a friendly wave all I see is snobbery and elitism. If you are younger than them and drive a nicer car you are pretty much doomed to getting a ticket and being harassed. No I have not had an incident just heard something on the news and also remembered some things from the past.

So in the future, use turn signals, maybe a friendly wave once in a while, maybe not drive down the highway during rush hour causing “inDAviduals” to think that your supposed to drive 5 -10 UNDER the posted speed limit. While out make sure that people aren’t running red lights and that their equipment (tail lights, signals, etc) are working as that helps all of us.

Well in April I am heading out to California for a pseudo family reunion, it should be pretty good. Though if it turns into a “house arrest” situation I will not be happy. Nothing like flying half way across the country and be able to see the local sights as well.

While I do not know what all took place I would like to congratulate Egypt for their own overthrow and hope they can show the world that bad leadership of any kind can be removed.

Good luck to Iran and Sudan.

America, take notes we need to work on this here as well!!

Well I have been very busy getting the rest of the things for my bike. The larger panniers (saddlebags) came, they are large, I have not had the time to stuff them to see how much I could fit into them yet. I am trying out a new seat, after all if this doesn’t work the trip would be more than a pain in the ass.

OK I have taken on a new project, since we are going to ride the Katy trail next spring I’ve been gathering data (places to stay etc) and making a nice file for it. I have Name, address, phone number, website (if available), email (if available) and coordinates. This is something no one has done so I am taking it on. I use a GPS for my other hobby and really like having a GPS. So I though why not get the coordinates for these places, there might be other people with GPS mounts on their bike. I think it will be nice to have, you have an idea as to where you are and how far you have to go. The data I am creating can be found @ http://thekatytrail.foreverdigital.net I hope you find it useful.

Ok time for another rant, yes it’s online dating and how it still a joke, I have begun to take it as serious as I take our government. (NOT) There is nothing in my profile that says I am interested in trolls. I am sorry there are very heavy people in world, sure I am a tad heavy but I hike and bike. Also what is it about me that says I am interested, NOTHING. So why do dating sites and heavy people try to set me up. Now there about 12 women that are “close” to what I would like (per the dating engine) I would honestly say I would date 10 of them for sure, the other 2 are not bad either just not my top 10. As usual I have sent “icebreakers” I have send emails, what do I get in return ………………. wow I can hear a pin drop.

Well I will eventually have more pics of the bike, but daylight is short and the weather is getting colder

Enjoy and have a great day.
