It's been a while...damn near a year, but it's been a busy time.

Lots of small changes, but one major change has flipped things around for us and made it very difficult to find time to do anything. We had a baby and she is now just over 6 months old. We had been trying for quite a while and just as we were giving up, it happened.

So I've dropped a lot of things and my bike time has been severely limited. Being a parent all over again has been a very exciting time and this little being needs your utmost attention.

So, another riding season is about to begin. March temps are starting to rise and the amount of rain we are getting is quickly melting any remaining snow. That doesn't mean we are in the clear as the Maritimes loves to switch seasons mid-stride.

Insurance for the bike has been renewed and the biggest thing I need to take care of is a new set of tires. Here's hoping our finances agree and let me pick those up soon.

No promises on posts as my time is no longer my own. In the meantime, stay safe out there.

Still alive

"I don't like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people: "Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, 'There is no "I" in team.' What you should tell them is, 'Maybe not. But there is an "I" in independence, individuality and integrity.'" Avoid teams at all cost. Keep your circle small. Never join a group that has a name. If they say, "We're the So-and-Sos," take a walk. And if, somehow, you must join, if it's unavoidable, such as a union or a trade association, go ahead and join. But don't participate; it will be your death. And if they tell you you're not a team player, congratulate them on being observant."
