Bicycle Heathy vs. the Evil Hilly
Okay, I am starting to get a little nervous here. In three weeks I will be doing the Hilly Hundred bike ride. Last year I did a ride called the Flat 50. So what was I thinking registering for a ride that is twice as long and WAY not flat?!?! ... Read more

A Little Diddy For The Ice Cream Man
Anyone who knows me knows I love to nap. I can nap practically anywhere. I've suffered strange looking sunburns because of this talent. I especially love a nap when there's a little rainstorm. I light a few candles and take a little snooze..... Read more
