New Year's Eve

It's almost 2006, one final post before the new year. I could make it a New Year's resolution to blog more, but that may be deathly boring to most folks :-)

The weather here has been too nice, I sometimes feel sorry for all those snowbirds, but, it's not like they have to live where they do :-). The bad part though is the very dry conditions which have led to numerous grass fires, the city and county have banned fireworks, although, I'm sure, we will still hear plenty go off tonite.

I'm still not back riding the bike, a bit disappointed in that, but something I need to deal with. I'm giving myself some more time, I'm sure things will come around, and I will be riding soon, perhaps sooner than I expect (I can hope!). The new bike looks a bit forlorn, I think it wants to be ridden :-). I should have the bike computer by the middle of next week, and thus, can get some measurements on how far I've been riding.

Hopefully, 2006 will be a great year for everyone. Smile, be happy!

Small additions around the blog

I added some new links to around the page, to display a 'Quote of the Day'. Seems to work ok. It does require JavaScript, so you will need to enable it for my blog to see the quotes.

I'm back!

It's been a little while since the last blog. There were some personal issues which interferred with me blogging, but those are over.

The football team did not make it past the 2nd round of the playoffs. They nearly made an impossible comeback but fell just short at the end of the game. Still, a very exciting game.

Another local area team, the Hutto Hippos made it to the State Final in class 3A. Unfortuneately, they lost a back and forth game. It's pretty tough to make it to the finals and not win. They did beat the #1 ranked 3A team on the way to the finals though, quite an accomplishment.

I have a new bike, we will see if this improves or changes my riding habits. I intend to get a bike computer, mostly to get a better measurement of the distance travelled. Alot of my normal riding is on hike & bike trails which have not distance markings, so I'm pretty much guessing how far I'm riding. At least with a computer, I will have a more or less accurate measurement. A good Xmas present for myself.
