We have two dogs, Daphne, a Goldendoodle, smart, funny, the love or our lives, although she's having some troubles now at age 9 (looking into that as I write this); and Loden, a Keeshound, that had a year of abuse before we got him. Age 6, he still has serious PTSD, to the point where we recently concluded I can't walk him in our local park, even with leash and seldom used shock collar. He is a delight in the house and usually outside, but reactive enough on sporadic occasions that I've had to stop taking him where there are other dogs or people (Keeshounds were supposedly bred to be watchdogs on Norwegian barges, as I tend to believe; ironically, my wife gave him that name, Loden, after she met just such a fellow on a Buddhist retreat; he both helped my wife and said the name means "seeker of serenity"). Our dog's still working on that one, though clearly in the process...

Meanwhile, I've started getting him to walk on our Nordic track for the needed exercise. Here's a video of that from yesterday, with the soundtrack added by my stepson, Jack Crawford.

Not my place to question your choice of music soundtrack, but I think for your dog's exercise to be more socially/politically relevant, you should choose something more contemporary.

It's a toss-up. I feel like Mark Twain: I have trouble making up my mind, because it's so large.

All of us are watching our Mother Earth Car crashing into the bridge. I am tired of thinking about it. Thank you John for giving me my new motto: " I don't care, I love it."

Watching Loden's legs going and his tongue hanging out made me smile big time. I think you and Loden were born to be wild. Loden would look great on the seat behind you. Get your motor runnin,' head out on the highway, go lookin' for adventure, and take Loden along for a ride.

("In a car you're always in a compartment, and because you're used to it you don't realize that through that car window everything you see is just more TV. You're a passive observer and it is all moving by you boringly in a frame.

On a cycle the frame is gone. You're completely in contact with it all. You're in the scene, not just watching it anymore, and the sense of presence is overwhelming."

" Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values)

"Born To Be Wild"

Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

I like smoke and lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racin' with the wind
And the feelin' that I'm under
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

Like a true nature's child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die

Born to be wild
Born to be wild

Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

Like a true nature's child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die

Born to be wild
Born to be wild

Thanks David, I could not for the life of me remember who made that song. Of course I remembered immediately when I saw that!

Over the course of my life I've had five bikes. And been too close to the road on a number of occasions! The last one was on a mountain pass in Costa Rica and I had to go to an emergency hospital where the guy could speak about as much English as I do Spanish, which made it very interesting. We were on the way to the airport for me to return and I had to get a medical extension. I was wrapped up like a mummy and pumped with hydrocodone.

Anyway thanks for the feedback to all the above. Greatly appreciated.

I wonder if that film might have been taken riding in Utah. I have never been to Utah other than SLC. I suppose it might have been Nevada.

I hate to admit this but I had longed for a long time to get me a Harley. I saved all my money and I had one picked out. It was so good looking. But then what did I do? I opted for the aluminum siding. What a fool I was and I guess, I probably still am. But I don't care anymore, I love it. :)

I never really was going to get me a Harley. And,I never got aluminum siding. But, I have often thought about how much fun it must be to go out riding.

I remember a long time ago a commercial about a guy that did long for a Harley. But yes, he opted for the aluminum siding. I've always remembered that.

So you are a bike rider. I honestly had an inkling you might be. Or maybe, I was just hoping you were. But you being a rider does not surprise me. After all, you ski the deep powder. :)

If I were to get a bike now, Christine would send me packing! But I have been looking for a long time and more recently into a motorized hang glider.

Meanwhile, back on rollerblades which I recommend as the best form of human transport. So much like skiing, gets every joint and muscle. Keeps things slow enough to be able to enjoy the scenery.

BUT--always a but or a butt--my three rules after I think four trips to the ER over the years on rbs, are LLL. As in Look where the f y're going; Loose, as a cat; Low, as in keep your CG as low as possible. The last being tricky for me, with a skinny or what I call a "non-ass." Though over the years I have had two women, including Christine, say that I have "the buns of a race horse!"

Not much more I can say without writing another book...

A motorized hang glider sounds fun and interesting. If it were me, I would stick with a prop and forgo a jet engine.

Maybe go hang glide around the Utah Data Center. Let them know you are watching.

Sign in front of the Utah Data Center where the NSA stores all of our emails, phone calls, web searches, texts, and who knows what else...
