  1. Yeah, hoping the change of scenery does him some good. Not sure he will ever live up to the salary they're paying him though....
  2. Wings vs Hawks tonight at the United center. Will be interesting to see how the young lineup does... http://www.mlive.com/redwings/index.ssf/2015/09/detroit_red_wings_young_lineup.html#incart_river
  3. Another vote for Acronis. If you have a Western Digital hard drive..... http://support.wdc.com/product/downloaddetail.asp?swid=119
  4. Sounds like some additional compliance might not be a bad thing. What size is the seatpost on the Calfee? Could end up being a good deal----> http://www.ebay.com/itm/381404172568 But it's a 31.8....
  5. Can't tell for certain from that picture but it appears you're running a Thomson post? From an old Velo article: ( http://velonews.competitor.com/2012/12/training-center/technology/from-the-pages-of-velo-getting-the-most-from-your-post_267560/1 )
  6. Cool. I did a Jorah in white, a pair of cheapo tights and was considering a zoom (long sleeve jersey) but in my experience their stuff runs bigger then cycling apparel from other companies so an XL could end up being a problem for me..... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UYYW2X0 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005OVSCBO http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008KK9MFQ Another option for cheapo tights = http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MCZQT6K
  7. LMAO, what's with the Canari jerseys that are named after Game Of Thrones characters? Might be an arm twisters if you can live with the styling-----> http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UYYY33M http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UYYVZ7Y
  8. +1 Here (in Kalamazoo county) you can rent a trap from Animal Control for like $10 a week and they will even relocate the animal if it's not "aggressive" or has obvious symptoms of rabies. (took an animal there once, asked them what they were going to do with it, the guy said they were going to destroy it because it so aggressive which made me feel bad even though he said they test them for rabies) Anyhow... dealing with a Racoon that has been in a trap for a while can be a problem if you're not prepared. May be better to call them and have them come out and deal with it.
  9. Finally a return to temps in the 70s.... 90s was crazy for September! If you missed it the current promo at the Feed is a "Bonk Breaker Fuel & Recover Nutrition Kit". FaceBook link----> https://www.facebook.com/thefeedme/posts/912153808865340 I would prefer the Strawberry chews (with caffeine) but the tangerine/orange ones are not bad.
  10. 30 miles tonight put the three month total at 2007 miles. Looks like I have some work to do if I'm going to hit 3000 miles before the weather changes.
  11. Finished shingling the roof yesterday. Seal the seams around the vents and install extensions to bring the drain waste vents up to code are on the list for today.....
  12. Mister X

    Show Me a Hero

    Same here. Got bored watching the first episode, changed the channel and have not watched any of the other episodes.
  13. Went to the garden to check on the Zucchini that was left to do it's thing and ended up with a bucket full of potatoes and cucumbers. Is it to soon to pull up the rutabagas?
  14. Squash bugs are a type of "stinkbug" that sucks the sap from the leaves of squash, cucumbers, zucchini, pumpkins and the like. Pain in the ass to get rid of them once they appear. And yeah, the purple sunflowers rock but only got 6 plants from two packs of Burpee seeds this year. By contrast we got about 15 plants from the 25 pack of assorted seeds that I bought on eBay last year.... ( www.ebay.com/itm/290827111207 )
  15. How big is to big for a zucchini? They would have been prime 2 days ago. Decided to leave them and see how big they will get. And yeah, that's a squash bug. Sunflower time again....
  16. Tragic reminder to be safe out there. http://woodtv.com/2015/08/08/woman-cycling-across-michigan-killed-in-hit-and-run/ https://www.hopewaterproject.org/default.aspx?page=4043&person=8201 https://www.facebook.com/groups/231377713646444/
  17. Cheap ass "poundable edging" looks much better then I ever would have guessed. Now to decide on a mulch color....
  18. Our cat will meow at other cats. It's like a trick to lure them closer before she switches into growling, hissing, psycho attack mode though.
  19. Is the F-secure "warning" giving a phone number to call to fix the problem? It all sounds very much like the worm the guy down the street had that was telling him McFee had found a virus even though his son had removed McFee several months earlier and installed Kasperky. The son had also installed several obsolete registy cleaners which borked all of the user profiles and several other registry keys. I backed up the documents and such to an external drive, did a system restore from the Dell restore disks, put all of the documents back where they were, installed Bitdefender free and it's been good for almost 6 months now even though his wife has like 426 frigging facebook games.... (just went an installed a NIC for him the other day and was impressed that malwarebytes did not find much to complain about ) BTW if you have a retail serial number you can get a restore image from Microsoft. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-recovery
  20. Try the free version of Bitdefender. http://www.bitdefender.com/solutions/free.html Works much better then AVG but you have to give them an email address (register it) after a couple of weeks.
  21. Had a similar experiance with the tomatoes I tried to grow in pots last year. They did great until it got hot and then the plants just kinda withered and died without the fruits ever turning red. The neighbor lady said if you put the pots on concrete you will cook the roots and even when the pots are not on concrete you have to water them several times a day to keep them happy. Which is a bit of a catch 22 because overwatering is an easy way to damage them.
  22. lol, but I like the Sigma! Was waiting for the Garmin Edge 25 but I'm thinking it may be to small now that it's shipping.
  23. Lack of rain turned a planned, 68 mile route (to Lake Michigan and back) into a 90 mile adventure.
