    I believe this cat's name is Dan Quinn.

    It reminds me of the various Wack-A-Mole-Game attempts Quinn has tried to fix the Atlanta Falcons not realizing how one thing can affect another.

    If you have a favorite team that is not doing well, maybe you can give him a name.

    If the telephone doesn't ring ......... it's me

    Looks like someone's parents have more money than brains...

    That kids will outgrow that bike before they finish paying it off oh and let's not forget those are the worse types of pedals to have.

    You see that lady walking across the paths of them getting ready to start? Also, look how many kids are cheating on the start line already! :#

    I NEVER did like those TOE pedals! I tried them and thought, who thinks these are a good idea?

    I use clip-in pedals on my road bikes. Steady state riding, they keep your feed in the optimum position over the long haul. They do require a bit of technique to clip out, however, not good if something sudden happens. Yep, I've fallen because I couldn't get my foot clipped out in time!

    I've tried but abandoned clip-in pedals on my off road bikes. Too many instantaneous changes in terrain on the trails. I now use BMX style platform pedals with threaded studs on them for grip. Kinda a compromise, but it allows for my feet to fall off the pedals and brace from falling if needed.

    Saw Jorma & Jack (Hot Tuna) Thursday night in Randolph, VT.
    Kind of a laid-back show (compared to other times we've seen 'em) but good -- and, I've gotta say, Jack Casady is a heck of a bass player. I have seen 'em before but I never really appreciated how good he was. He's in the echelon of Entwistle (my own personal rock bassist hero), which I hadn't really appreciated until this week.

    So, the deal was -- for an extra 30 bucks, one got a seat in the front two rows, a copy of Jorma's recently-released memoir, and a "VIP" :p meet-n-greet with Jorma after the show. I sprang for the "VIP" tickets to get good seats... the book was a bonus :)

    Interesting factoid; Jorma Kaukonen is left handed. I did not know that. As a fellow, sinister south-paw :) I asked him why he played guitar right handed. He said, "There was no way my father was going to spend the extra money for a left-handed guitar!" So right handed it was. :|

    A pic of my Monitor Audios. I think they are some of the nicest looking speakers I’ve ever owned.

    They sound awesome. I've never heard a mini speaker this size that I really liked, but I think these sound better than my Mission 770's in every way except for bass extension, and I prefer them over my SDA CRS's, except they don't have that massive sound stage. The sound stage does extend a good bit beyond the speakers, however. :)

    Monitor Audio did an awesome job of the Radius series. With as good as these sound, I can't imagine how good the Bronze 2's I was looking at a while back sound.
    I may make a review on my YT channel, and if I do I'll post it here. :)

    Ask @Clipdat how the Monitor Audio Bronze 2’s sounded to him.

    He recommended them to me when I was looking at getting new speakers a while back. I was worried they would be a downgrade from what I had at the time, but if they are as good as these then they are almost certainly better.
    Once I get some stuff sold, I’m going to think about getting a pair, because other than cables I think I am done for a long time otherwise.
