While browsing Facebook, I came upon this FB post by Bacchetta Bicycles; telling of some local events they will be attending this weekend. So I followed the link and gathered all the information I could. BUT… then I checked out the FAQ page, to see if bents would be allowed in the event. Light bulb(Bacchetta was going to the event, so I guess bents are allowed… DUHHHSmile with tongue out) There I found a VERY INTERESTING response to that question; as to WHAT kind of bikes can enter! “Are Time Trial bikes and other aero equipment allowed? Yes Time Trail bike are allowed, you could show up in a URO (UNIDENTIFIED RIDING OBJECT), Surprised smileas long as you are pedaling your good to race.” URO! COOL! Surprised smileWOW! My mind is already crunching out ideas on how to deploy and promote those 3 magical letters into shirts, ads, and other promotional avenues!  Thumbs up BUT… having just checked the domain.com; it’s already taken, with a few of the other end addresses, net, org, etc., available for a fee… Crying faceBut... there are potentially other names or phrases that could work with those letters.Light bulb It sure would be nice if other events were MORE URO friendly! See there you go! Nyah-Nyah

THIS… is not going to make quite a few of my RABID Apple products devotees happy… Nyah-NyahBUT I DON’T CARE! Party smileLong ago I learned, that being the first to get your hands on a sensational new product is NOT really a smart thing to do! LightningWhy? (Duhhh) Because inherently these products are going to have early bugs, hiccups and glitches. Wilted roseSeems to be TRUE according to this following story / link for the new Apple iPad! Rolling on the floor laughingGee I camped out for a week and hundreds of hours to be the first to get my hands on this…. now problematic product? Crying faceLOL! Rolling on the floor laughingOnce AGAIN, my Beloved Parents advice comes to life! “Son, NEVER buy something that has JUST COME OUT; there’s always some wrinkles to iron out”! Thumbs up

OT - This law is UNSAFE and VERY DANGEROUS! :-(

You know, laws are usually passed to protect people… BUT… Florida has one law, (Seen in the photo here) that has to be, Confused smileTHE MOST DANGEROUS UNSAFE LAW, Sad smilefor locals and visitors to Florida! If we were back in the 30’s or 40’s where the pace of life, especially vehicle wise, was MUCH SLOWER and easy going; this might be an OK law. BUT folks, in this day and time, Autosociety is NOTHING BUT FAST PACED!!! (HURRY HURRY, I have to get there) I can’t begin to tell you how many NEAR misses Surprised smileI have witnessed, of people naively beginning to walk across one of these signed areas and nearly get wacked! Wilted roseThis might work in some quiet small towns; BUT NOT HERE! Common sense says, wait until there’s no vehicles approaching and then SAFELY proceed across the street!  Thumbs upKeep in mind, Mr. or Ms. Right a way, has been dead and gone, for a long time!
