    Did you file charges, or at least make a formal complaint? The other stuff sounds like sheer incompetence, but this seems much more serious. Did your mother's bank refuse to release the info? I think...

    Congratulations! Adorable house - looks just like mine, without the dormers. Have fun painting!

    Way to make an impression with his new neighbors! What a shame, though, and I'm glad the cat was okay.

    I'm a novice gardener, trying to learn from my accomplished neighbors. Last fall I planted and transplanted a bunch of stuff. Now I'm looking at all this new growth and wondering what's what. So no...

    I went into a shop today and there on a rack was a bright blue and pink Crux. I thought, "Oh, there's Helene's bike!" It's really beautiful. I hope you enjoy many miles on it.

    I'm sitting here wearing my new Revel :cool: I usually run errands in the morning, but I was getting a little antsy this afternoon. So I went to one shop to try the Bell again. It was fine, but I...

    This one. It's pretty basic and boring, which is why I hesitated. The Bontrager was more colorful. I imagine you like something "racier" ;)

    Bontrager! Maybe. When I tried one on this morning I realized how much better a helmet can fit. There was also a Giro that felt good, too. I have one or two more stops to make.

    I'm starting to realize my head is oblong. And, apparently, big. The women's helmets are just too snug front to back. I feel too much pressure on my forehead. When I woke up this morning I pretty...

    It's not necessarily which one is cooler. I'm just wondering about preferences, or maybe some inside info on why things are done different ways, maybe for practicality, fashion, climate. I hope I can...

    My old helmet is a Bell. As I mentioned, no real thought went into that purchase. I was in a local shop a few days ago and tried on Giro, Garneau and Giant. The Garneau fit well, but I didn't like...

    Helmet shopping!

    When I bought my last helmet, I knew nothing, had no money, went through a catalog and found one on sale. It was probably the end of the season and the color was not a big seller. The helmet is kind...

    Specialized changed the geometry on the 2015 models. Is that where the confusion is? I started a thread about this a while ago. This is also why I'm looking at last year's closeouts.

    The bike actually comes with red bar tape and bottle cages, and has a white stripe. I might to go all black. Or maybe silver or gold, if it's not too "blingy". Or blue. I like blue.

    Funny thing,...

    Oh Catrin. I get sad, too, reading about the bike. Not for the first time I wish I were a couple of inches taller. I'm all for donating things to charity, but not this. Have you contacted Gunnar? I'm...

    I'm sorry I meant to answer this sooner. Briefly, we played around with the stems. He wanted to try an adjustable one, but realized he didn't have any. So I'll go back next week and finish up. Since...

    Okay, a few thoughts. I wanted to put a grab bar in the shower both for me, if needed, and for when/if my mother visits. It seemed the tub was getting very crowded with shelves and little hooks for...

    Ah see. I've done lots of home remodeling lately, and still have more to go. Would you like to see pictures of my new roof?

    Oh, no no. I'm talking to exactly the right people :D I wanted reassurance, people telling me what I want to hear, not some sort of common sense rationalization. So thanks!
  23. This is somewhat normal behavior, right?

    I took my new Specialized Vita back to the shop today for our initial fitting. I asked if I could also bring along my Dolce which I bought a couple of years ago at a different shop. Sure, no problem,...

    Thanks! I have a cart going at TE so those reflectors just might work.

    I was trying to work around my neighbor's car and still get some of the greenery in the shot. It was a little distracting.
