I love the Cookie Monster! this came out about two weeks ago and I saw it on yahoo. there are great facts about the psychology of the cookie monster that come up during this interview that are important to note to all adults, especially if you have children--like the fact that he (Cookie Monster) will not trample over anyone or anything to get to his food. Some other interesting facts are given in this interview but I won't spoil it for you.

I cut my hair to be donated to Locks for Love, a non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. It took me about two years to grow this hair and I'm proud to say that it's all natural color. Thanks to Millbrae Hair Salon for cutting my hair and securing it with appropriate bands so the hair wouldn't separate.

The Golden Gate Bridge is always a good ride and this time I rode with my friend Jose up to the lookout. The top of the lookout was cutout to put cannons facing the Pacific Ocean, done by the US Army during world war 2. It was so early in the morning that taking pictures facing the bridge caused washed-out shots so we opted to take pictures facing the Point Bonita Lighthouse. The Marin Headlands climb up to the lookout was a good workout and we were there early enough that there weren't a lot of tourists with their cars, or bicycles for that matter. Jose rode all the way up on his double chainring front!

My friend Josie recently celebrated her birthday. I took the opportunity to celebrate with her halfway around the globe with a beer for her. Cheers Josie.

I don't believe I posted my new wheel for my Langster yet. I was so caught up in the excitement to ride it that I totally forgot. Deep-V rim, Surly hub, Soma fabrications 14-tooth cog. I love the anodized red look of the rim.

What the my car looks like when i do my "honey-do" list at costco. Take note that I can still see out my side mirrors, which is the minimum requirement here in California.

my ride last week from 92, on canada road, to 84 and back. tried the new gearing of 42x14 on the road and it was great! I even paced with some roadies that happened to be on this ride as well. looking forward to ride the velodrome again.

I feel that I needed to post something about Sheldon Brown on my site because though I only had the chance to encounter him through email two weeks ago, his site is truly one that all cyclists have gone to, need to go to, and will continue to go to for all their cycling needs because of the wealth of information. It was Sheldon's articles about fixed-gear riding that actually convinced me to try fixed-gear riding out for myself. When I got the bug and started riding my fixed-gear exclusively because of my joy I emailed him immediately. He responded and I got the connection with him. I found out through the flicker website through a contact - richardmasoner. This is an extremely HUGE loss to the cycling community. I for one, hope that someone will continue his web site.

God speed and rubber side down friend.
