Two in...Two out

That's the breathing technique on the training and fitness rides. Everyday at lunch it's a 10 mile spin around the industrial park complex. The tour is in less than three weeks and I also want to lose 30 lbs by Friday.

These are "head down, hammer into the wind" rides and I try to keep the spining high. Tomorrow may see a slower pace on the road to Wheaton again, and maybe some photos.

The evening walks have been long but slow. My dog walking partner is still recovering from a collapsed lung. I find myself walking at half pace and he next thing I hear, "can we slow down please".

Tonight we'll be looking at an almost 1/2 moon with Jupiter as bright as ever. Last night things were so clear and bright, I was knocking on neighbors doors to come out and take a look.

Before the star gazing dog walk, we will be hosting a send of dinner for #2 brother. Richard and Rochelle will continue thier east coast holiday with a visit to Maine before driving home to Florida.


  1. Thanks for the star map. It's nice to be reminded of the beauty that is all around us. I'll try to view some of the live version tonight.

  2. Good luck with that 30lbs by Friday thing.
    Love the constellation map as well!

  3. I've been a big star fan for a long time. Such an impressive site and free to boot, save the lamentable light pollution our fair country produces. Used to be more hardcore, but children and sleepless nights "cured" me of that.

  4. I am envious of your tour plans. I'm sure you'll love it. Looking forward to reading your reports.
