Sarah in SC...you plan to motorcycle in Peru? Wow hope to hear all about. We just got back from Peru and loved it.

Okay, since this is what have you done today thread...I went to the mall and walked this morning since it is nasty and raining here. Good day for mall walking and I was early enough to beat the crowds.

Another grueling day in the ER world. Since DW had a slow day of work (self employed) we tag teamed to label and document the contents of the wine closet. I wrote the year and varietal on the foil or neck of each bottle, and then dictated the info to DW who entered the data into an XL spreadsheet. Now we have cataloged the rack from location A1 to M9. Almost all slots are filled and discovered a few bottles we didn't know we had.

Also took the car over to the mechanic to look at the SRS light on the console. Have to bring it back next week as multiple error codes showed. We went and got a Buckies and a Noah's bagel to fill the breakfast urge.


Just got the Harley back last Monday and the bike looks great.


Happy T day to all!!

Ah, that is great--feel free to PM me with any suggestions from your trip!
Here is a thread on what we are doing in Peru--sheer madness. We leave in 5 weeks!

Mototaxi Junket

And in the spirit of updates, I just passed my motorcycle driving test this weekend after a grueling 3 day course. Never been on a bike before in my life!

I did my routine things and still find great joy in doing them - gym, read, cook, watch TV, check my emails and Facebook. The only non-routine thing is to visit a general doctor to get a reference letter to scan my kidneys since I have a small stone in one of my kidneys which needs monitoring. Going to scan it this week - hope it has not gone any larger.

No problem. It is not like you will be biking through the Andes on a three wheeler.

I was probably the only student they've ever had in the class who did not intend to ever ride a motorcycle again, LOL. I really just wanted to be able to learn how to shift and handle the motorcycle in a safe environment and use the smaller training bikes they have. Plus I wouldn't have to take the regular DMV test (because I don't have a bike to borrow).

I will definitely be a more careful 4-wheeler, so all you bikers can feel just a bit safer that I at least, won't be the one to run you over at the intersection!

As it turns out, the three wheeler will have little in common with the handling of a regular bike, especially relating to steering and turning. High side turnovers are going to be a special area of concern. And let's just say that I got 7 points counted off for my lousy quick stop!

Is your 3 wheeler the new style with the two wheels in the front or more like a tricycle with the two wheels in the back? For some reasons it seems to me that the new style would be more stable.

Oh, pb, you have no idea. This is what we'll be driving for a couple of weeks in Peru starting Jan 1st. See my thread Mototaxi Junket

But, I have seen those spider type bikes on the road and they do look pretty cool. Alas, I have way too many things with motors in my life already to pick up another expensive hobby.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did not know the new place came with an outhouse.

I was approached by a local Eyewitness News reporter as I was leaving a popular mom-n-pop grocery store in Utica NY. I did not see the news truck parked 3 spaces away from my car.
So I asked her if she had some ID to show me. That caught her totally off guard. I explained I was not much of a TV watcher, much less the news. She laughed and gave me a business card. I said OK, then, roll 'em.
She asked me all kinds of questions about weight gain and "what is the most fattening part of Thanksgiving?". My answer? Gravy and mashed potatoes, and of course rich desserts.
An entire 5 seconds of my interview was used on the news tonight. I actually looked and sounded pretty good.

Please form a line for my autograph.

I got a chuckle from this Ha. It reminded me of my little G-daughter (not quite 3 years) who has just completed potty training. When I last visited, she was so proud of pooping in the big potty that she wanted everyone to come see the 'product'. In fact, she insisted I take picture of it, which I did. Since she uses about 8 feet of paper, the picture reminds me of a giant white snake coiled up in a toilet with one beady little eye looking up. Oh, and she wants a book to look at while she sits on the potty too.
