    I always liked Great Expectations. When I was 18 or so I found an old leather bound copy of it in a used bookstore in Brown County IN. I struggled to part with the $10 or so they were asking, but it was leather! I still have it 30+ years later, my first "real" book purchase.

    I think we have another spammer... Or are winter shoes and nut butter related in ways that I cannot fathom?
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    LOL I was thinking that too...

    Ways nut butter and winter shoes could be related:

    #1. Fill winter shoes with nut butter and dangle from a tree branch for birds too eat off
    #2. Nut butter and winter shoes both help keep you warm when its cold?
    #3. Women who would by cycling specific winter shoes tend to eat lots of high end nut butters as well...

    ....?

    without revealing too much, a lot of water's gone under the bridge with them, judging by Facebook - will try and send her a message there.

    I just love that song.

    The timing is perfect on this video as my sister and I (along with 28 other women mostly over the age of 50) will be riding into Memphis on May 13, and we have a day off in Memphis on the 14th before continuing to ride up the Mississippi from New Orleans to Lake Itasca, MN.

    Will be leaving next Wednesday for the 30 day cross country which will officially roll out on May 4th after meet and greet, orientation and obligatory weighing of the luggage so that no one goes over the weight allowance.

    I am collecting piles of clothing, gear and stuff along with multiple lists. Our second day is a 94 mile day so I will get to see straight off how well the training plan worked. I figure I will probably throw in, or at least will try to, ride an extra 8 miles so I can claim century number 6. There will be four opportunities throughout the trip.

    Bounding up and down.

    Well wow. The latest spammer is certainly a wellrounded person with many interests - chinese agriculture, shanghai fashion and blood beverages...
