Programming Standing Up
After listening to a Science Friday report on the correlation between TV time and mortality, I’ve decided to stop sitting at my desk. I’ve propped up my keyboard and monitors with boxes. I’ve done it for a week now. My calves and shins are tired, but my legs don’t get fidgety, or fall asleep or…
I didn’t realize on Google Maps that I could drag the route around to modify the directions. That’s awesome!
Aldrich Ride — Very Pretty
I expanded my northbound commute to go up Aldrich on Wednesday. Very pretty. I’m hoping to keep doing that. I like the extra distance and I like going down the hills–I got to 28mph! I bet I can get to 30. Also I think I can get better photos of the rolling countryside on that…
Low Carb Diet
I just got sucked into a Wikipedia article on low carb diets. It’s very interesting to note that from a anthropologic point of view, and an evolutionary point of view, that humans have not been raising grain for a long enough timespan in order to effect evolution.

Infinity Fire Hydrant, Ferndale, 2010

Ever seen a monocycle?
This is wicked!
My sister has a bunch of friends in Eugene that do “tweed rides.” Yes, dress up in tweed, go for a group ride! More Tweed Ride on Katura’s flickr. Awesome! I think Archival Clothing is a site that has some interest in this. Bikeportland seems to have some buzz too. I noticed the tall bike,…
Alley Van, Bellingham, 2010
The side of a van I saw tonight. I’ve got another picture that shows how tidily this van is parked, patching a hole in the fence of it’s yard. Print version.
Whatcom Creek, 2010
I was able to prop the camera against a signpost and get this 1 second exposure with my 28mm lens. Sometimes I’ll start some post-processing, get a bit frustrated, and come back to it after puzzling it out in the back of my head after a while. It getting texture I visualized for the water…
