Yestrday we had storms come through - nothing more than rain for us, though farther north they had high winds which toppled trees. Rain is good when it doesn't come in a deluge. If you sit down and get comfortable in a lotus position, you'll realize that last sentence was profound.
I rode stage 1 of the San Remo route after work yesterday - 14 miles. And once again my legs proved I was wrong when I said walking all day was a strain on them. My speed increased by .7 mph and I finished the ride in 45 minutes (+ a few seconds). This means my legs are getting stronger, and believe me, I'm long past 29 years of age.
The murderer from Minneapolis has been arrested, his wife's divorcing him, and the Idiot Jerk in the White House made a halfhearted attempt to define his racist Tweet. The arrest failed to stop the protests, the wife is trying to save her own ass, and the Idiot Jerk? Three and a half years of his Racists, White Republican administration are in no small way responsible for the anger. Quite often, he has courted the whites of the far right because he thinks angry white people are the key to staying in power. Boy, is he stupid. He is totally clueless as to how many people, black, brown, and white, that video horrified and angered. That's a video of the Idiot Jerk's America, not ours. That's the ugly vision of a Cracker Jack Christian and White Republican America, it does not belong to the majority of Americans. The time has come to take back America, to put it on the right path, to, as I read in another blog, crush these losers with the same rock that they crawled out from under. It's as simple as that.
To try and lighten the mood, here are a couple of pictures of my roses. I took them yesterday after I'd gotten home from work.
Now, wasn't that a nice and refreshing vision of beauty?
