Snow = MCT (man cave time)

I garnered some quality man cave time this weekend no part due to the irreverent snow storm that caught us all off guard Saturday morning. Here's a sampling of Sunday afternoons efforts. Any guesses? (no they are not sexual in nature)

I'm back to about 80% on the bike. I've still got a twinge or two of pain here and there, but can ride mostly pain free. With any luck, I'll be 100% by weeks end. Now I'm 3 months behind my normal fitness goals. My main goal now: the Lumberjack 100.

It's been a while, so how about some random thoughts:

72 Hours to read a 3000 page Health Care Bill. Seriously? I now fully understand what Grandpa meant when he said, "This country is going to Hell in a handbasket."

Snow in late March, sucks for building trail and riding Mt Bikes.

My dog likes broccoli stems.

I did not leave the house Saturday. Not even to go to the mailbox. Wow!

I love Northern Iowa Basketball. (and St. Mary's is a very close second)

I have some new equipment inbound. Double-Dog excited about this. Maybe Memorial Day as a goal for serial number #00001.

Plug in Young MC as a new station in Pandora. Sit back and enjoy my youth.

Brewed some beer last night. The darkest "light brown" ever.

2007 Bare Knuckle Boch at Flat Branch vintage night might be the best stuff ever. Yes EVER!

Time to see if Reedy was back in action under Mr Jones new big screen. (cryptic yes)
