All I wanted for Christmas was to Keep My House
Posted December 14, 2008

So finally...I got my house situation settled and the good news is that I get to keep it.  It's been scary - lenders not even wanting to talk to you until you're in default...or worse.  I was afraid to do anything - even a deep cleaning - until I knew my fate.

Whole Lotta Redneck Fun
Posted October 23, 2008

Every year at the Altamont Raceway Park, the season culminates with the Pumpkin Smash event.  Fans arrive to the track and there are pumpkins all over it.  What for, you ask?  So that way the fans can come down and smash them onto the track - and then a truck will come by with soapy water and then what--there's a race!  Or is it a demolition derby?  Or both?

Posted July 31, 2008

I can't believe it is July 31st.  What HAPPENED?  It seems like it was just Spring.   I had a promising summer building (that crashed and burned with the loss of my job and the breakup of what I thought was a relationship with a lot of hope in it).  Now I'm finding myself going into August and what happened?

Posted July 28, 2008

I guess I really suck at relationships.  I've never been lucky in love, or in this case, like.  I thought things were going really well and then things started to feel weird; communication broke down and the affection began to wane (I'm super affectionate), I found myself being spoken to rudely, and well, it just fell apart.

Mammoth Lakes
Posted July 17, 2008

So I had my second 'overnighter' trip with my HOG group - and it was a blast.  We went to Mammoth Lakes and I had my first look at Yosemite.  I know, I know.  I was raised in the Bay Area and had never been to Yosemite - well I can't say that now.

Death Valley Road Trip
Posted April 30, 2008

My first long trip was at the end of March to Death Valley.  I rode a different bike (which had a handlebar I had to reach for - agony) on Friday to Ridgecrest - 380 miles.  I was in pain so Bob offered to take me 2 up on Saturday.  It was a new experience to ride 2-up!
