I like to ride my bike.

My feat for today

Success is mine! Today I grabbed the piano book off the shelf that I have not been able to conquer. It is music by Michael Nyman from the movie ‘The Piano’. Hard stuff. I have not touched it but once or twice since I bought it a year ago. I [...]

Stupidity Abounds

Argh! I just saw a news story about South Dakota’s new ‘free’ prescription card for seniors. The story noted that the card offered the smallest savings among most other prescription savings plans.

Poor Barry Zito. He pitched too [...]

And my favorite person today is…

This is a big shout out to Tony. Yea, I don’t really know him, but I do know that he helped me fix the last major problem with this site–related to browser compatibility. So, for all you wretched people who insist on using IE, it should look OK now.
Oh, and visit Tony’s sites [...]
