Excited Centering

Illnesses postpone gift exchanging this year. Porgy’s dinner, Key Lime pie, tea and chocolates filled warm bodies and hearts. Much to be thankful for.

Best of the Web 2011

wide-area acoustic surveillance coming to a militarized police state near you, great for reducing gun crimes but at what cost to privacy, and tax payers ($60k per mile subscription). What else is it being used for …. finding those pesky protestors and turning them into indefinitely detained ‘terrorists’?

65.7 @ 19.8 max 35.3

Unusually low winds in the single digits and tempts in the high 20’s to start and low 40’s to finish. With many riders off in the woods the Sunday crew was fairly strong with 6 to start and 4 for the full route to Arcola via Pesotum.
