Sometimes when Bill Maher gets it right, he gets it really right…
It can be summarized by something in the YouTube video description:
It’s time to stop judging everyone in the past by the standards of the present.
Okay, it’s kind ‘a two videos, because there are two versions of one of them.
First, today’s thought for today:
Next, testing out a 3 meter stick with my Insta360 ONE X2 (a walk to the convenience store):
And the same footage as a 360 degree video: Read More
I am part of the Amazon Vine program, and I can attest that the special access that gives me, as honest as I want to be, probably affects my reviews. In my case, that’s free produces, but as this video points out, it doesn’t have to be free for it to be a factor:
Neal Schon needs to get his fro back. 🙂
The final day of 30 Days of Cycling was inside, but this shows you how beautiful it was outside. 🙂
(This was posted later, but WordPress back-dated to the day of the video and ride.)
Let’s just say that going up a long hill with the wind in your face isn’t enjoyable. However, one of the places I stopped to recover had these interesting folks:
I was especially interested in the cow, but the dog didn’t seem appreciative of my visit:
The horse, however, didn’t seem to care much:
Regardless, I survivied today’s ride…highest heart rate 166.
I did get back outside today…and it was a great day to ride for day 28 of 30 Days of Cycling!
No pictures, but you an see how beautiful it was by watching my thought for today:
If you are wondering where this is in Strasburg, Colorado…here is a photo of what I had my camera attached to to recorded it (snapshot taken a previous day): Read More
Day 27 of 30 Days of Cycling was on the exercycle in the basement again. Not only was it windy (albeit not horribly so), the was on and off…which just adds discomfort to the ride.
But today (I am posting this a day behind and post dating on WordPress), I am shortly going to climb on thy bicycle regardless of conditions. At least, that’s my plan. 🙂
Posting this late and backdating in WordPress…but one thing I generally avoid…at least first thing in the morning…is wind. Makes a bicycle ride painful.
Day 26 of 30 Days of Cycling was on the exercycle…
Since I had another unattended Supplementary Instruction session, today’s ride was in the basement again…
Assuming the weather cooperates, I’ll be back outdoors tomorrow!
I headed north this morning. Can you figure out where in Strasburg, Colorado I turned around at for day 24 of 30 Days of Cycling?:
Okay, the side of the building gives it away. 🙂
Of the three pieces of equipment, this was my favorite:
To give you a feeling of its size, I’m 6’4” or 6’3”, without a bicycle helmet:
Tomorrow’s ride will probably be inside, given Wednesday morning life obligations…
It was windy enough today (day 22 of 30 Days of Cycling), that I was already going to fall back to using the exercycle. It worked out well, because I don’t think I would have necessarily beaten the rain.
However, you can get a taste of today’s exercising by watching the thought for today I recorded during it. 🙂
I figured I’d still take it a bit easier after Thursday’s “fun” ride, so I headed north on Strasburg Road. Trip out: no problem. Trip back: well…harder than I expected. On the surface (based on Thursday and today), it seems that my body does not start back up well after I stop for a drink. Hmmm…
Regardless, here are some pictures from my turn-around point today. First is a look northeast:
Here is a panorama that from due west to due east (you can click on it for a larger version):
Here are some flowers that I noticed on the side of the road just before I climbed back on the bicycle to head home (and why I said creation is a blessing):
And, finally, if you are interested, the Apple Fitness stats from today’s ride, which show a maximum heart rate of 162: Read More
I was going to ride outside on day 20 of 30 Days of Cycling, but my back suddenly got really painful first thing, so I went with the basement exercycle. Probably good, since yesterday’s ride caused me to make sure nothing went wonky with my heart. 🙂
