Mr. Outside Thermometer informed me that it was 39.4 (Fahrenheit) when I took off this morning. The 40 degree barrier has been broken!

I added the red silk balaclava adds a bit a panache, don't you think?

I tried to take a picture showing the magnificent headlight beam, but it turned out BLACK! No pic for YOU!

The Christmas lights are out in force.

These are a little jiggly, but I think it adds to the appeal.

These are fairly stunning, I say!

You can get a sense of how the world looks through my eyes, and why I try to avoid driving at night!

Managed 45 miles this week, even though I missed day due to rain.

No one called me any names today, but Steve the Big Swede reports that on a ride to Crest and back this moring he was called "Fag" twice on the Crest grade, once by a guy in an official Heineken beer delivery truck. So does that make Heineken the beer of heines? Anuii? Work with me here!

I've come to the conclusion they resort to saying that when they are cruising and hoping you are of that persuasion. I'd rather not relate quite how but I will go so far as to say I once responded with a rather crass remark and they quite seriously offered to perform the described deed. This was on a heavily trafficed road with bumper to bumper traffic. I'm still convinced this character was quite serious.

Well, when the pic of you in the red silk balaclava popped up I was taken aback as I thought you might have joined some weird wrestling federation.I think it's the angle of the pic and that your mouth seemed rather smashed. I agree with Geoffrey.
