    Why in the world would the chicken (i.e., Hen) be interested in a capon, which is a castrated rooster (http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-capon.htm , http://www.thefreedictionary.com/capon) ??

    No fire this morning. It was pretty cool but it really warmed fast.

    I went for a haircut this morning so rode my bike. I had to dress warm though. However, before I got there (15 miles) I was shedding clothing and I was pretty sweaty. It was a nice ride though. 33 miles total. I'm closing in on 3,000 miles now.

    Is that a lifetime or a yearly total? Either way great work. As for haircuts I'm finally in fashion with all the head shaved coiffures. Bald is finally beautiful again.

    I haven't paid for a hair cut since 1989 since I started shaving my head. Wonder how much money I've saved over the years?

    No fire yet, but I did have to go to the fur lined slippers and put the flip flops away for my night time lounging. I would love to hold off until October, ideally post-Columbus day. Not looking promising on that front. Lows in the 50's this week.

    we had 31 degrees here the other night. seems awful early, but maybe because we never really had a summer up here.

    I ran my NG furnace this morning. For a quick cycle it costs almost nothing. A fire would have cooked me out. Time to order the last 4 windows then the main level of the house is all new windows... Yep, its almost time!!!

    Ed, that is this year. I really don't know for sure on the lifetime but it should be a pretty good total. The most ever in one year was somewhere between 5,000 and 6,000 miles.

    I'd planned on trying for a 200 mile day this summer but it is not going to happen this year but 100 isn't too difficult. I love those long rides! But now I'll start tapering off on the daily mileage.
