OT–Here we go again… Fix something that’s NOT BROKE!!! Google's new Gmail compose format………………………………
You know, this Technological age is beginning to REALLY SUCK! Tech O geeks continue to tweak and change things, that work perfectly, to something that now SUCKS! Gmail’s new compose box (Pictured) is still another example of fixing something that’s not BROKE and now… it CHOKES! I guess I’m going to have to move to Thunderbird email application, when accessing my Gmail accounts.
Update! WOW! I have already gotten numerous emails on how to use Thunderbird application, instead of, Let’s screw up something that worked perfectly well, Gmail! Check out this link! How to switch away from Gmail (There are tons of more links to look at, by doing a Google search… Which they will probably mess up pretty soon too… )

OT–Reason 60,000 why CBS Television Network TOTALLY SUCKS! :-XXX SHAME ON You SCUMBAGS for disrespecting our US troops!
The popular CBS reality show "The Amazing Race” is under fire for featuring an episode set in Hanoi, Vietnam, where contestants go to a B-52 Memorial, which is the wreckage of an American bomber plane shot down during the Vietnam War, to find the next clue in their televised round-the-world journey.

To my Facebook and other Friends…. Please TAKE the hint… or… else…!
WELL… once again, I have gotten NUMEROUS invites to participate in one of those ANTI Bicycle Campaign events! If you have followed my blog, you surly know by now that I’m NOT a fan of these negative goofy events; that ultimately put a BAD light on cycling altogether. I’m really trying to be nice here… BUT… I’m kindly requesting that you all PLEASE STOP sending me invites to these… clown events! To anyone I receive another invite from, you will be unfriended in Facebook, your email deleted from my account and basically I really have no desire to keep in contact with you anymore. I know this sounds rather MEAN spirited; BUT it is one of my few undesired issues, I really don’t want appearing on my radar! I have also added this logo on my blog sidebar, so everyone knows, this site SUPPORTS Cycling, through MORE positive avenues.

Any cycling calendar sites in Texas EZ?
Hey EZ, I understand you are originally from Texas. Have you been back lately? We are just about to re-locate there from the frigid North… Missouri and are dedicated bicyclist. (Sorry not bent one’s though) Are their any websites that offer dates for cycling events? Signed Marie
Hello Marie, Thanks for your nice email. And no, I have not been back there lately; but am really want to go back to the ole hometown of Houston, Texas one day. Having said that, I still keep in touch with quite a few of my Texas cycling Family and I do have one particular website, that is the BOMB, for cycling event! http://bicycleridestexas.com/ is the site you should really check out! Now, here’s a little tad BEWARE FYI… You are going to a state, where everything and anything is either BIG or done in a BIG way! So be prepared for cycling events that may have THOUSANDS+ of cyclists. In fact, one particular event, Hotter N Hell in Wichita Falls Texas, has had 20,000+ cyclists participating in that event!

OT - Who died before they could draw their Social Security? :-O
THE ONLY THING WRONG WITH THE GOVERNMENT'S CALCULATION OF AVAILABLE SOCIAL SECURITY IS THEY FORGOT TO FIGURE IN THE PEOPLE WHO DIED BEFORE THEY EVER COLLECTED A SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK!!!
WHERE DID THAT MONEY GO? Remember, not only did you and I contribute to Social Security but your employer did, too.
It totaled 15% of your income before taxes.
If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that's close to $220,500.
Read that again.
Did you see where the Government paid in one single penny?
We are talking about the money you and your employer put in a Government bank to insure you and I that we would have a retirement check from the money we put in, not the Government.
Now they are calling the money we put in an entitlement when we reach the age to take it back. If you calculate the future invested value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer's contribution) at a simple 5% interest (less than what the Government pays on the money that it borrows), after 49 years of working you'd
If you took out only 3% per year, you'd receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you're 95 if you retire at age 65) and that's with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit! If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you'd have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month.
Another thing with me.... I have two deceased husbands who died in their 50's, (one was 51 and the other one was 59 before one percent of their social security could be drawn.
I worked all my life and am drawing 100% on my own social security).
Their S.S. money will never have one cent drawn from what they paid into S.S. all their lives.
THE FOLKS IN WASHINGTON HAVE PULLED OFF A BIGGER PONZI SCHEME THAN BERNIE MADOFF EVER DID.
Entitlement my foot, I paid cash for my social security insurance!
Just because they borrowed the money for other government spending, doesn't make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!!
Remember Congressional benefits? --- free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days.
Now that's welfare, and they have the nerve to call my social security retirement payments entitlements?
We're "broke" and we can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, or Homeless.
Yet in the last few months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile and Turkey.
And now Pakistan......home of bin Laden.
Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!
And they can't help our own citizens in New York and New Jersey!
They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives, and now, when it's time for us to collect, the government is running out of money.
Why did the government borrow from it in the first place?
It was supposed to be in a locked box, not part of the general fund.
Sad isn't it.
99% of people won't have the guts to forward this.
I'm in the 1% --
I just did.
And EZ Biker posted it on his blog!

Hey EZ, is this YOUR secret project??? :-O
Hey there EZ, LOVE your site and happened onto this article at BROL about a 20” wheeled recumbent. I remember you had previously posted about a certain secret project 20” wheel low racer project; did it just get revealed? Signed Ted
LOL! Ted! You are so… CLOSE! Yes, this surly looks like a Rans Handgun; (A similar project name to my plan) and looks really cool! BUT… NO, it’s not my secret project, aka The Rans (Unauthorized) “Revolver” or the still on the table Ti Aero Jr. projects. SO… stay tuned as something may be rolling around pretty soon!
