    I have noted of late that NYC is getting much more discriminating in his
    selection of newsgroups to post to. This is all to the good and I urge him
    to stay with ARBR especially. We are a very small newsgroup need all the
    members we can get.

    Hmmm ... that rec.backcountry seems like it would be an interesting group. I
    wonder if they need my ministrations?

    We here in Minnesota go directly from winter into summer. Our springs are
    the pits. I have heard tell that other sections of the country have
    magnificent springs, often lasting a month or more. But that is not the case
    here.

    Yesterday I had the heat on in the house as it was so chilly and today it
    has become like summer. There are even flies and mosquitoes buzzing about
    the house. How can all of this happen in a single day?

    Minnesota is gorgeous in the summer time, but the rest of the year it is
    strictly for polar bears. It is my aim in life to die in a warm spot, like
    maybe Panama or Costa Rica.

    PS. Sorni, your user address really sucks. Why is that? Are you just one
    humongous sucker?

    I have never seen a name with so many consonants in it. There is something
    totally screwed up with the Slavic languages. The Poles seem to be the worst
    in this regard.

    Note my name if you please. So sensible a name has never existed except in
    the lovely green land of Ireland - and one that is easy to say and spell
    too. I think it means in Irish "the dark one". Yea, I go to sleep every
    night muttering my name under my breath. It is music to my ears. Imagine
    going to sleep every night muttering the name Krygowksi. God! Such a name
    would give me nightmares!

    Yes, I say we shanghai other newsgroups plant the recumbent bug in 'em!

    If you like a matching pair of black eyes -- some of these people are

    More than the Dolan's done in years on both accounts,
    so it seems.

    Do you still have the Stratus?

    Junk food. Moderation. The tasty bits are gone already
    anyway...

    For many of us in ARBR, noodling for bottom feeders
    has no further appeal.

    Ed:

    A good scrub of your body will reduce the flies - perhaps with a
    scotch-brite pad and heavy duty cleanser.

    And if you were to die, you would no longer attract the mosquitos.

    I never knew it existed.
    Too many groups to monitor.

    Yes. That's the "to work in the rain" bike.
    I rode the Trek in today. And likely the the rest of the week.
    I did see another recumb over the weekend on a bike path.
    Not a Rans.

    Remember the anteater in B.C.? When he sucked up the ants the noise was something like "Zoot"?

    Believe the sound the large (non stinging, thank God) bug that went up my right nostril Saturday at approximately 28 mph made a sound more like "Zok". Only downside I can see to bent riding so far, the nostrils are upright and wide open for insect intruders.

    Maybe we should devise a sort of bug screen that would hang in front of the helmet and still let the air through?

    ARBR fauna are less numerous now, perhaps. We have our
    Grosses to bear. %^)

    I've grown my stable to three. The TourEasy is my rain-bike
    choice,-- it's the only one with fenders. The windscreen helps,
    too.

    As a fishing technique, effective for catfish, though some might
    call noodling unsavory as a practice. Figuratively, a common
    method when trolling for Dolan here.

    Naw, Bob is largely harmless. He hasn't fully figured out the net
    (but who has?).

    I debated the wind screen. I drove today. I have to give a polar
    talk this evening.

    Well, I don't mind fishing with explosives. I'm not one of these catch
    and release guys normally. Work has me troll for bigger things.

    No.
    I'm a book reviews editor Jon, I just got 3 book in the mail for "free"
    just asking for reviews (do you know anything about diffusion through
    porous media? yours just for 2-3 pages, god knows who I am going to find
    for a reviewer for a part of Knuth vol. 4 {Don non-intentionally
    intimidates every one [he's that thorough]}). People send trade copies
    to me all the time to curry favor. The person to ask about bears was my
    classmate Hillary or maybe the Craighead brothers. Or Herrero.
    See why it take me so long to get through Hillerman? 8^)

    Fishing
    Noodlers do it bare handed.
    Bears do it bear handed.

    Trollers here do it ham-handed, mostly. Poor technique,
    no finese, noise only.

    _Blue Bear_ is a lighter read than most of that, I'm sure.
    A nice read on vacation or traveling. Interesting story, tragic
    ending,-- or not in some Zen way. Not really a story about
    bears. You know the "ending" from the introduction. Some
    Alaskan culture and history, mainly a personal tale.

    I see it is available as an E-book. I picked up a used copy
    for a couple of bucks. Will pass it on.

    No one, but no one, can troll the Great Ed Dolan. On the other hand, I can
    easily troll all the suckers and bottom feeders who infest ARBR.

    Apparently Meinecke stays current on this newsgroup although he never makes
    any contributions to it anymore. Well, he will learn some wit and wisdom
    simply by reading what Ed Dolan the Great writes to this miserable
    newsgroup, otherwise known as ARBR.

    Meinecke was one of the main things that was wrong with this group when push
    came to shove. When a criminal vandal troll showed up here (Ed Gin), all he
    knew how to do was to run and hide like the cowardly weasel that he is. He
    does not have a clue about what destroyed this group. It takes talent to be
    as dense as he ever proves himself to be. I attribute his density to his
    Germanic racial traits.
