    Quotable Quote

    A few of my favorite Will Rogers quotes: "If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went." "Too many people spend money they haven't earned to buy things they don't want to impress people they don't like." "A fool and his money are soon elected." "Never miss a good chance to shut up."

    Here's a little history re the Turkey Pardon. https://www.whitehousehistory.org/pardoning-the-thanksgiving-turkey

    Despite having no political affiliation, we were invited to attend the traditional Presidential Turkey Pardon in the White House Rose Garden last week. Thought I'd post up a few photos. The turkeys were taking questions for media day at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel where they had their own suite. After passing the check points on the day of the pardon, we walked in along the East Wing. The South Portico. The view of the Mall from the South Lawn. We were admitted into the Rose Garden early to see the National Thanksgiving Turkey deep in thought and pacing just before the ceremony. I think he was a bit worried that the pardon might not go off as planned. Much to the bird's relief, the Trumps showed up on time and granted a full pardon. We mingled a bit and offered our congratulations to the turkey for his new lease on life. I took this last photo as we were leaving. Turned out to be a beautiful day - the Rose Garden and Oval Office can be seen in the background left of the large tree.

    I was walking around Hong Kong one evening and this looked a bit strange to me - Buddhas in bondage.

    Had A Brush With The Grim Reaper The Other Day

    No wait. I think this is a riddle. - Had a brush with the grim reaper... - The rider wore....a black helmet... - The skeleton wasn't wearing a helmet... Did the woman who lives in the yellow house and drives a Ford wear the red hat??

    Best female vocals, looking for suggestions

    A few of my all time favorites. Judy Collins (I wanted to be a groupie for Judy), Deborah Harry, Joan Jett, and Roberta Flack. If you only want listen to just one, then click on the Roberta Flack video - I can't think of any better love song.

    That's an empty threat - Thebes doesn't have any hair to spare.

    I don't check in here enough but I'm sorry to hear of your departure and that I'll never know the story behind your forum name. Also, if you don't plan to use them, could I have all of your "likes"?

    So Long Sew-Ups

    I think that the Italian steel framed bikes from the 70's mark one of the high points in bike evolution. That Legnano and the Ciocc are very cool. Looking at the frame geometry of the Legnano, the center-pull brakes, the rack braze-ons, the cassette, and the high flange hubs, I'm thinking that your bike is a fast touring model and would be great just as it is for road use. When you wear out the orange ones, tan walled tires would look great or maybe white. I put some white walls on a mid 90's De Rosa I restored a few years. I also built up a set of Ambrosio rims for tubulars (sew-ups) for it and honestly can't tell much difference from good clinchers.

    Not "great photography" but I saw this small herd of elk about a mile up the road from the house yesterday. One of these might ease those grocery bills.
