He skidded completely across the street into an oncoming car??
This is one very fishy-smelling report.

That is "Maggie Mae Rose the Third". And she is not humiliated. She
is a spoiled brat of a dog. And I adore her. She loves that hoody.

Right.... You Probably make that poor hound share a doggie bed with

Headlines are written by page designers, not the article writers. But
yeah, I wonder how many automobile deaths and injuries there were in
the time frame covered in the article.


Joe S asked:

Smith & Wessons sells a S&W branded mountain bike to police
departments. Here's a selection:

I wouldn't mind having one as a commuter.


And finally, Maggie asked:

Time Trial helmet. It's designed for a specific event and it's not
something you'll see on the road outside of a race. Yeah, the helmets
look goofy, but so do wings and spoilers on cars outside of the race
track.

Racers in a time trial also wear a slick skinsuit and shoe covers to
reduce drag. Time Trial bikes are also a little different from your
standard road bike: aero handlebars, shorter length frame, etc to
scrunch the rider down as much as possible to get him out of the wind.

Don't be so sure. A friend of mine built a tt bike this winter. The
first time I saw him this spring, I busted out laughing. He had bought
an old aero style tt helmet on Ebay. A bright yellow one. Everytime I
see him in it, I have to bite my tongue, to keep from laughing.

At least he is very fast. Although when he rides with me, the
usefulness is a nonissue;-)

I don't have the heart to tell him how silly he looks in it. I
wouldn't want to hurt his feelings, as he is a really good guy. Maybe
someone else will tell him.


Life is Good!

That dog sleeps on my bed, on top of 800 thread ct. Egyptian cotton
sheets and underneath a down comforter which has a 600 TC Duvet cover
over the comforter. Plus she has her own pillow.

That is one spoiled dog. And she is impossible to move when she is
sound asleep. All 100 lbs of her.

"Maggie Mae Rose the Third" is the queen of the house. Even I bow to
her every whim.....and I don't do that for anyone.

Because Labs are very unique dogs. Loyal, loving, and attention
seeking. When I bought my Lab from the breeder he told me that the
greatest punishment for a Lab is to be taken to her crate as a puppy in
a room away from the family. No need to hit or yell at a Lab. The
greatest punishment for them is to be away from their family...even if
it is in another room.

After years of raising Maggie Mae Rose III. I have discovered that it
is true. She must be with the family wherever they are. She is like a
shadow. They are awesome dogs. Loyal, loving and devoted. Terrible
guard dogs though. If a burglar came to the door she would bark like a
bad ass junkyard dog but then when the person enters...she would make
him coffee and chat. ;-)

It is indeed. I've ridden that very road several times. It is
narrow enough and rural enough for most of its length to be completely
devoid of a center dividing line; however, it is quite wide enough for
two cars to pass each other with room to spare.

There *are* a few places where you can pick up significant speed
leading into some blind righthand and lefthand turns. If you space for a
moment and target-fixate and nail the brakes, then I could see the above
happening. That said, the northbound route is mostly uphill.

Was he on the "wrong" (left) side of the road? Then he only had to skid
