FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.

And I am going to the Thirsty Lion first when I visit next month.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Everything on the Glock Bus||
stayed on the Glock Bus. But then again, every other bus had a Captain, we had a Rear Admiral.

is actually a bit difficult. Think of it more in terms of taking a mundane daily function normally performed half-asleep into a ritual that is for your enjoyment, and a rare opportunity to really treat yourself to something special.

....is a very good place to start. I would recommend that you start of with a Double Edge safety razor. Going from a can of goo and a 3-4-5 blade cartridge razor to a straight edge blade is asking for trouble- your skin will need to get used to an entirely different shaving technique. Also, you will need a strop and other items, and the overall hassle is much greater for a straight-edge vs a DE safety. You will need a decent shaving brush (badger!) and will want to consider shaving soaps or real shaving cream- throw out that can! Aside from the Arcade you can check out sites like westcoastshaving.com; There are also Art of Shaving stores but they are more like the gateway drug to this whole thing. I personally like Truefitt & Hill, but there are a lot of other good, if esoteric brands. Important point- go slowly and allow the weight of the blade to do the work. DO NOT press down like you would with a cartridge! Another resource is to do a search for "Mantic59" on YouTube, he has many videos on shaving technique, etc.
There WILL be a learning curve. Back in the day fathers taught sons proper technique, but if you are just starting out you may expect "a few" nicks and cuts. I strongly recommend you check out the Nick Stick. Proper shaving can be a real treat to yourself, take the time....

|1 week 1 day ago||Weather||
I can't remember seeing so much rain, day after day, in any previous Tour going back 20 years. Question: I DVR the Tour so that I can catch up with it later; time being a factor, I don't want to record the original live feed. Which replay is the best one to watch? The Prime Time?

Wait, this isn't a drinking thread?
|1 week 5 days ago||If someone is DVRing a sports event||
and you deliberately ruin it, you are an unmitigated asshole, pure and simple. Being out in the Pacific Time Zone, I very frequently have to DVR events (UM games, World Cup, le Tour). If the outcome is going to suck, that's life and also what the FF button is for.

|2 weeks 20 hours ago||1989 Rose Bowl||
It was an absolute catharsis, Bo and UM beating USC in Pasadena after coming from behind in the second half. It was his second bowl win, and it felt a bit more real than his first win against Washington coming from a depleted Pac-10 a few years before. We had parked next to a couple of young guys in a pickup who had driven all the way from MI, and they were all excited and confident we were going to win. Us older alumni gave them the NSFMF and told them not to get their hopes up. They waited for us until we came back to our cars well after the game, to give us the best and greatest "I told you so!" in my entire life.
The 1998 Rose Bowl was a close second...

Normally things really slow down around here in the southwest, the snowbirds have gone back to Canadia and the Land of 10,000 mosquitos, the dry heat yields to "monsoon" season, and things get generally quiet. Great time to relax a bit and schedule time off, etc. BUT NOOOOOO!!!!! This year it hasn't let up, I am booked out a couple of weeks, it has been absolutely crazy. I am in danger of violating my life philosphy "You can always make more money, but you can't make more time!" Gonna hit the couch this weekend....

has come out with a new line of bikes, the Emonda; the top of the line version weighs in at all of 10.25 lbs! I wonder if we will see them- UCI still has minimum weight limits, right?

Another beach day in the offing. More drinks. I really needed this!
|5 weeks 2 days ago||I DVR games||
and watch them later that day so I can FF thru commercials, half-time, official reviews, etc.; I also FF thru opponents long TDs and PATs.

Cali Wolverine once.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||You may be speaking about||
Chicago's many bicycle messengers, who do ride in a rather cavalier manner with regard to rules of the road. Most sport/enthusiast cyclists will obey traffic laws, as a matter of safety.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Big fan of Voler gear||
But I tend to wear high-visibility highlighter yellow/green jerseys when out on the road. But then again that color seems to pass for "maize" these days.

Washington invented it, we perfected it; just like the MMB invented the script Ohio, though they "perfected" it (as far as anything associated with Ohio can be perfected...).
