Gotta go where the $$$ flows…
BROL managing Editor, Bryan Ball has posted a really nice article about the demise of the CLWB (Compact Long Wheel Base) recumbent. Sadly this is still another one of those signs of the times, you have to market what really sells, even when you are in a niche industry. Recumbent trikes continue to do well, as does SWB’s. (Short Wheel Base) BUT… CLWB’s did provide an easy way to try and maybe ease into acquiring a bent and that’s what made them a truly great product to have on hand. Now it’s jump on something that takes you way out of the mainstream of bicycling or trying to master a Grand Prix RACER type of bent; that you have no immediate experience on. Alas but still another reason, the bent industry will continue to be a mere footnote in the bicycling world…

OT - CHAAAAAARGE! You Earthlings are STRANGE!
OK, I have posted the following statement at 2 different places on Facebook: “I don't get the Black Friday, road warrior attitude. Why get out there in the CRUSH of crowds, when with just a few mouse clicks, and a drumstick in hand, you can even get stuff delivered to you FREE and your shopping is DONE! You humans are strange! :-PPP”
So I get an email from a good friend of mine who happens to be one of those… MENSA types. (Decently intelligent) Sitting at her computer, she was able to get all her Christmas shopping done in a few hours, with every item she wanted, in stock and most of it getting shipped to her FREE in a few days! No vehicle traffic, crowds, camping in tents, or mosh pit encounters in a store needed! All this and she even enjoyed some leftover Thanksgiving turkey as well. I gotta tell you again… I truly don’t understand this road warrior attitude! And like my title states: You Earthlings are STRANGE!

OT–Another COOL use for that little Windows Notepad application! :-D
Believe it or not, I tend to use the notepad txt app on my Windows OS quite a a lot. Saving links or tidbits of info that I know are transferrable to another computer down the road. So when a friend told me of an issue with an outdated journal software, that they now had issues accessing, because it is incompatible with their Windows OS, I suggested they consider doing their journal entries via notepad. Which brings me to a really neat website find, on using notepad for just that application! Check it out, it’s so EEEEEEEEASY!

The KISS of DEATH signs of avoiding to do business with a company! :-OOO
A post caught my eye over at BROL and the circumstances evolving from it, are one’s that have been played over and over again. To anyone reading it; you should REALLY tread carefully before contemplating purchasing any product from them. Usually it’s the little things that start adding up and in this stance it’s the non responsive emails. But for the poster; it’s even WORSE; as they have prepaid their $$$ for a bike (Unseen or untried? DUMB DUMB DUMB) and now, there’s been no response for over… GULP 6 months??? Are you &^%$#(* kidding me? If I had not gotten a response or at least a confirmation that my payment was received within a couple of days; I would have surly alerted my charge card company immediately. As such, I hope anyone else contemplating ordering from this company; sees the signs and realizes, this could be the KISS of Death, for you getting your ordered item!

esurance website: sharing the road with bikes article! :-DDD
Thanks to Josh at Atlantic Bicycles for Facebook posting a really GREAT Pro active Bicycle story by esurance. Here’s a quote from the site: “Cyclists help the environment by leaving their gas guzzlers at home. But they can pose a challenge to drivers who need to take extra precautions when sharing the road. We'll help you learn how to safely navigate cyclist-heavy streets.”

OT - EZ’s FB & Blog Friends………. FALLING LIKE FLIES!!!
WOW! Between my continuous posting of Papa John’s appreciation day at my blog and my just posted Denny's Franchisee To Add Surcharge For Obamacare, on facebook has me feeling a lot like: The Rebel, Johnny Yuma! (Baby Boomers like me, will know this old TV show) AND… I have gotten quite a few POO POO emails too… Seems I have hit a NERVE or something. Ummm, I don’t CARE? BUT… folks, trust me, unfriending or un-visiting my blog, is the least of anyone's concerns; considering what is getting ready to spread like wildfire in the service work industry and maybe other industries as well! Yep, to you Obamacare faithful, you have set something into motion that could see the “40” hour work week go the same way, as the telephone landline… Quoting now: "People are trying to find ways to avoid the penalties and to avoid having to pay for Obamacare… Everyone's looking for a way to not have to provide insurance for their employees." Metz, with about 1,200 Denny’s employees, said he will also
cut most of them to below 30 hours a week
in order to dodge laws requiring they be provided with health insurance.” And for those that depend on TIPS… you will probably see less of that too, thanks to a surcharge fee… Sorry, but your tip was consumed by that surcharge fee, HE HE! I plan on offering another serving (Pun intended) on this in a future post, for any possible… remaining… EZ Biker Friends…
