Life On Two Wheels

Along the river and toward the mountains a morning shadow shimmers across the road. The rays of the first light jet through the trees and across a figure gliding upon the road. His breath trails in short spurts, petrified as it hits the icy air. All is quiet except the slight sound of the athlete as he summons himself for yet another days work. Soon the rest of the world will bustle with life as well and the brief simplicity of cyclist and nature will disappear into the everyday struggle of life in full motion; the errands and intervals, the appointments and intersections, and the deadlines and finish lines OutPaceTheRace

The sovereign breakfast

North Bend, WA
Friday, January 12, 2007
So I was scanning the front page on yahoo news and this article on dieting caught my eye. I read a bit and discovered that it was digressing onto the significance of breakfast (remember the little medieval phrase; eat like a king for breakfast, a prince for lunch & a pauper for dinner). Of course the problem with most people is that they have no appetite for breakfast, not even Lucy Danziger, the author of the honorable article. This has been something of a conundrum for Lucy in the past, but she’s found a solution… Eat dinner food for breakfast… “Avoid rice and pasta, which don't typically reheat well, and dig into dishes like chili and casseroles instead.” Voila, problem solved. I was thinking I’d maybe do the green bean casserole for the king’s meal tomorrow…

I also found this of interest:

Business 2.0 magazine has its own list of the top five "bubble-proof" markets -- areas where annual appreciation outpaces the national average by at least 30 percent. These perennially healthy markets will come as no surprise to anyone:
1 San Francisco
2 Los Angeles
3 Seattle
4 Boston
5 New York
Where's Denver? Who stole Denver?
