Yesterday the temperature reached 76 (F). Of course, I was working. The skies were clear and blue and I was sitting at the Flooring Desk. Don't that suck? When I got home I opened the back door and left the dogs out. When the temperature is that warm I usually leave the back door open. The dogs love it. So do flies. A little after 6 (PM) a very large fly flew in. Dogs do not know the difference between a big fly and a little bird. Excitement was in the air. You have no idea what funny is until you've seen Big Seig snapping at a fly zooming past his face.
Yesterday, the Idiot Jerk in the White House vetoed the bill aimed at shutting down his Emergency Declaration. His Idiotic white base loved it. They see him standing for white
values. If you tell them their white values are racist they'll stomp their feet and shriek "no they're not!" They are a desperate group of people who hate the truth science reveals. If Evolution is happening, then their core beliefs are broken. Unfortunately for them, this late in the game, it is far too late for those core beliefs to... evolve. They do not understand the life preserver they are clinging to is waterlogged and will only drag them down. Nothing is going to change that fact.
In "The Body in the Tower" I talk about the peloton. For those who do not know, the peloton is the main body of cyclists in a race. Breakaways happen when a few cyclists ride ahead of that main group. Since they are pedaling at speeds of around 25 to 30 miles per hour, helicopters are used to film the peloton. Here's a shot of the peloton taken this past Monday during the Paris : Nice race.
The peloton in the Tour de France is much larger, usually starting out with 125 -145 riders. That's a lot of men on bikes. By the time the Tour gets to Paris and those men are riding down the Av. des Champs-Élysées that number has been whittled down to around 110. That's still a lot of men on bikes. Just think of that. It's almost enough to give one the vapors.
white ain't right! diversity is strength!ReplyDelete
yeah, they're terrified of evolution.Delete
And 49 people are murdered in New Zealand because of people like _____ and his minions.ReplyDelete
Dumb as bricks and deep in denial.Delete
So that’s what a Peloton is, huh? Le Tour de France is amazing. Now I’m curious about your book.ReplyDelete
Cheeto keeps pandering to his KkK base. No surprise. I hope it all backfires spectacularly. Can’t wait until he’s thrown in jail.
He understands it was aging white people who voted for him, he doesn't understand they're dying faster then they can make babies.Delete
I'm going straight to the bicycling thing because, little butts in tight spandex or lycra or whatever they be wearing now.ReplyDelete
When we bought our first d.v.d. player, Balder Half gifted me with my very first d.v.d. American Flyers. David Marshall Grant in tight biker shorts, yummo! Kevin Kostner was the main star, but his legs were just a little too skinny for those shorts. Good movie, though. Still no interest in watching the sport, however.
Costner. I own five of his movies and it takes me twice to spel hiz naym rite.Delete
I liked Breaking Away better, mostly because of Dennis Quaid.Delete
We've had crap weather here the last two weeks but today was glorious. I like nothing better than having every window and door open too (although without the flies of course)!ReplyDelete
This winter hasn't been that bad, but I am honestly ready for spring.Delete
