It was pretty chilly, high of 44 today.....but we sat home the whole darn day
waiting on some guy who wants to look at the fairground buildings to have
a gun show.....would be fun and interesting also, but he said he would call
when he was close as he had another stop to make and didn't show. So
now I am annoyed....if he calls tomorrow we won't be home, as David has
to go get his heart surgeon to check out the results of the CT scan, then I
guess we will go do some shopping.

Sounds like a fun time RE.....I wish is was no so far to where the closest chapter meets
but we won't go to Birmingham after nightfall.

I am almost done with my Christmas decorating. I left a lot of it up, and tonight the tree
went in the bay window....I have the railings done outside...I get the stuff all up and get
a kick out of it...just hate to take it down.

We had our monthly HOG Chapter meeting last night, the first Thursday of each month and it was "Pot Luck". Quite a few members brought substantial food for the members to share. Good food and a great meeting.

well, still no riding! His bike is STILL in the shop. He knows what the light deal is but I dont I know it was some electrical thing and they are waiting for a part they told him. He is fit to be tied! I might have to put together an email and sent off to corporate to complain. There is no reason it should take this long. Now he is going back to 3 days on at work so it wont matter as much but still he would like to enjoy riding to work when he can! This is a brand new bike! errrr

AND the other thing:

The cardiologist wants to do a Nuclear Stress Test on me this Monday and while he
is doing this as a precautionary thing to make sure all is well, I of course am scared of
it...David has had several and says they are no big deal but I guess after my blood
pressure going to high this past Friday, I am just nervous....

Since I quit taking the pill he put me on, has taken 6 days to get it back down to normal..

Ya'll keep your fingers crossed for me...

Yes, we call it "stuff". Gotta have it for the trip. Riding motorcycles on long trips creates challenges in packing for the ride. We really have changed what we bring with us.. Changes of clothing is the big thing. Of course now I bring my lap top on every trip. We do have two Ultras so you can pack more for the trip.

Did you note that we have a new member but they have their SparkPage closed so we cannot communicate with them. I do not know the solution for that - got any ideas?

I apologize for being AWOL but we took a few days and went up to North
Carolina to see Daniel and family(son) and my daughter also came down
and we all had a fun time. We are considering riding the bikes or at least
taking them with us next time....

It might be a good thing....would really limit the junk husband thinks we need
to take on every little trip...L O L

The light you are talking about may be the engine light. And, yes, when that light comes on it should be given a lot of respect. It could mean that oil is not being circulated throughout the engine. And that could be a "big time" problem.

I am in Mo yep we get winters big time! He said some light was coming on when it was running and it isn't suppose to. He has a 2014 so it is all under warranty thankfully! But I did find a short bike that would fit me! With some modification to the seat. As long as I have about an inch and a half boot also! lol!

Nothing wrong with needing a great excuse for visiting the Harley-Davidson dealer in your area. You only have right lights? Or you want "right" lights? Which lights. do you want corrected? This sounds like it is going to be a great bill - more than $100.00

Which state do you live in? Will you experience winter in your home state?

Well that is not good, DARLENE!

I found that riding the Harley soothed the sole. I felt that I had to concentrate on my riding so much it took my mind off of most the troubling thoughts I had. I know that when we, my wife and I, ride together we talk to each other more than when we are in a car or our pickup. I do take meds for hypertension and they work for me.

No riding this week. The cardiologist changed one of my meds and my blood pressure
has gone totally crazy....up high, down a little bit then back up....I finally had to take a
nerve pill tonight because I am getting so upset....it ran normal til he got it in his head to
change one because (new dr.) he liked it better than the one I was on.....
I quit tonight....I cannot deal with the extreme ups and downs and the vicious headaches.

awesome on the planting RE...and the Daffodils are one of my fave flowers ever...

It has rained here today, and we are supposed to have severe weather either tonight
or tomorrow and I am not looking forward to that..
I have an appointment with the Cardiologist tomorrow, just to get a fresh outlook...I
think I mentioned before that David switched Cardiologists and I go because there was
heart issues all over and thru my family....and I am precautions bound....

Hello Team Mates Kim and DARLENE on this Sunday evening. The weather in our area has been great. BUT we had other responsibilities - like getting the garlic planted before the freeze. I turned the soil over just one more time and mixed in some garden soil enrichener as well as bone meal and lime. We put in 92 garlic cloves, covered them with soil and then laid some salt marsh hay on top for a great winter mulch over them while they germinate and send up a tall spike. Cannot wait. We also planted some daffodil bulbs to for spring blossoms.

Maybe we will get out on the bikes tomorrow. It is supposed to be good.

We are I think, going to the police rodeo at the Harley dealer Saturday...hope it doesn't
rain. The guy who taught the safety class is a officer who trains all the bike cops in the
nearby area....and he always wins.....he can sit and balance his bike for it seems like
forever without ever putting a foot down.....

Anyway, my bike is a 2010 also, and would wish we did not have 2 more years to pay
on it...lol....we would have money if it weren't for 2 Harley payments and insurance...lol

Hope you get your garlic planted okay....we have some more flowers to plant for fall, then
my neighbor will be done...(he does my planting)

Plugged the bikes in to chargers today, so may.............................be a ride in the near future.

No. No new bikes for this household at least not in 2014. We are still paying for her 2010. Not too much more to go on that.

This Saturday is our planned time to plant our garlic. This is about the latest we have planted the garlic.

Well, that is amazing, to close and give everyone the day off.
Glad you got to take a ride but that gives you an excuse to ride again tomorrow.
Did you buy Sheila that new bike yet? lol

David asked me if I wanted to go try a new one out and find a lighter one.....
Not a chance...

Good morning DARLENE. It is Wednesday morning - a little after 5:00 a.m. and it is time for my exercise. I put all of 14 miles on my 2008 Ultra yesterday. Went to the dealership North Hampton, NH and they were closed. The staff gave every one a day off to take a ride into the White Mountains..

Pretty soon we will be freeing up some space in our "Toy Box" when we take our bikes to our business condo in Seabrook, NH - lots of space. You know 12 x 14 bay door into the warehouse part - lots of space and it is all open just waiting for the bikes to come to their winter resting nest. They go on the trickle charge there so they will be ready to start at any time.

Not so much space to fill up, but we like to have it clear so when we roll in, we go in
thru the right hand door, cut to the left, back up about 2 foot and then I pull forward and he
pulls in behind me.

However, I have a John Deere riding mower, a wagon to put tree debris and so forth in,
and then I have my self propelled mower to trim with, and assorted weed eaters and leaf
blowers.....the motor cycles are big enough to take up a lot of room....he wants to hang the
ladder and other things up on the walls....BTW, my truck is regular size, and lowered and
customized and it just barely fits in the garage, and is quite close even on the sides, so the
garage must have been built before todays trucks...lol
Davids truck is a 2500 Chevy and it will not even go thru the doors...on either side....

He tore out a bench on the back wall and we are going to take that out to the street for
pickup....supposedly we are going to finish cleaning it out this week...

Well, we do not have a garage. We have a "toy box". The "Toy Box" has two bikes and one Honda - the Honda is a snow blower. Cannot fit too much else into the space. You just must have too much space to fill up. .

Hi, Kim. I am back from our visit to our daughter out in western Mass. It was a beautiful day here in Massachusetts but we did not ride. What part of the USA do your live. We probably only have three or four more weeks to ride here where we live. As soon as the sun goes down the temperature drops into the 40s.

Good morning, DARLENE, it is a bit wet here this super Saturday morning and we probably will not ride today. Tomorrow we are driving our car out to Williamsburg, Mass. where our daughter and family live. She is a certified yoga instructor and training to be a physical therapist.

Lynn is really not to far from us - maybe 25 miles or so. Sometimes we take the train into Boston and it only cost $5.50. Well the train has a big stop in Lynn. It is a good sized city.

Got my garden rototilled and now to get some winter rye to broadcast over the soil. The timing will be right since it is so wet now and the seeds will germinate quickly.

Yes, tomatoes do need about eight to ten hours of direct sunlight each day. And some flowers do not require direct sunlight.

What part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts does your daughter live. We live up in the northeast of Massachusetts along the mighty Merrimac River in a little city called Newburyport. It is a Coast Guard City by act of our Congress. The claim is that the Coast Guard was born here with the building of the Revenue Cutter Massachusetts back in 1790.

We planted some tomatoes but chose the wrong spot for them, too close to the 150+ year
old tree in our back yard, the shade did them in....lol
Where we planted them, the previous owner had all kinds of flowers and plants, so we
are not sure what happened.

David loves garlicky food items and he cooks with a lot of spices.

We have a daughter in Massachusetts so you never know if you'll turn around and there we
are...we have been trying to get up there to visit for a good while.

We planted 26 tomato plants last spring and three did not make it so that is better than ten percent loss. Yes we do lose some each year. I cannot figure why they just died but it happens. We have not had to buy any tomatoes since last August and ours are so much better than the ones in the grocery store. The garlic we just harvested is just beautiful and we cannot even buy the type we have in the grocery store. We have fresh basil, parsley and sage - SO GOOD! We made up some ZipLock bags of stewed tomatoes and have frozen them for use through this winter. So we will break out a bag of the tomatoes and put in some of our garlic and sage and then some shrimp. WooHoo!

When you coming up to Massachusetts in the winter time? We can do this.

If you would like to try out gardening, you might consider a raised-bed garden or an "Earth Box". Doesn't have to be a big operation. You just might want a few vegetables or herbs. It may give you a sense of accomplishment and you might even want to turn more of your yard into a garden at some later time. You can go on-line and check out earth boxes. You can use wood or cinder blocks for a raised-bed garden.

Just checking in....there seems to be a lot going on everywhere. Getting ready
for Fall and I guess we should have a garden but I am afraid it would go to pot..
we have good intentions, just don't get things done like we should and I am gardening
challenged.....a black thumb when it comes to plants....

Have a good week....we had another biker killed Saturday......in this case a 22 yr old
riding a crotch rocket was going at a high rate of speed and when someone signaled
and turned he hit them...sad....

Well we had a beautiful day here today. We got a lot done too. Had to clean all the tomatoes out of the garden and put away the tomato plant holders. Spread some lime about to sweeten the soil to keep the PH right. Later this next week it will be rototilled. We are preparing a small area for the future garlic bed - somewhere between 65 and hundred cloves to be planted for next year. Pulled some year old compost out of their bins and spread that on the garden too.

Then we backed the Hogs out of the "toy box", fired them up and drove to Boston Harley-Davidson in Everett, Massachusetts. After that we went to visit an old friend in Hamilton, Mass. who also ride their Harley-Davidson. Got home about 5:00 p.m. Put on about 73 miles on both the bikes. It was a good day. A lot of cars were out their too and at times it was heavy going. On a warm day it certainly gets hot in the saddle. But it was good.

we have rode it once together to church but usually we have my daughter too so that eliminates that! But he will sometimes ride to church for giggles. He has been buying some new LED lights and things for the bike. He put them on yesterday. He is pretty excited. He just told me about some little bell I need to get for him I had never heard of them before. Guess I better get in gear! I have one picked out now!

Good ideas RE....I think I would invite him to go on a Saturday and see how that
goes. Or go riding early Sunday and then ride to church....our church members
have been wanting us to ride our Harleys to church for months...if it isn't raining,
we might do that Sunday...

Good morning, KIM on this fantastic Friday morning in September.

Next opportunity if you want to ride with this person you have to beat him or her to the punch and ask them to go on a ride some Saturday.

Our HOG Chapter has rides for everyone to attend. On Friday evening we might have an ice cream ride. On a Saturday we might have a "new member" ride to introduce them to group riding. On Sunday we might have a shore ride. One Sunday we had a sunrise ride along the shore which started at 4:00 a.m. at a lighthouse in Maine. You could have been back in plenty of time to go to church.

we were invited to go on a ride Sunday and we have church on Sunday . What kills me is the guy that invites us, always asks us about a Sunday one. Church is always on Sunday. Why keep asking?

Well, here I am again on this wild and Wednesday morning. Got up at 5:15 and made the coffee, had my first eight ounce glass of water, counted out four prunes and five dried apricots and made my way to one of the computers here to start my SparkPeople posting and logging.

I have about 1,625 straight days of signing in with SparkPeople now. That is a lot of days in a row.

No you aren't nuts either.....I like prunes and dried Apricots both.

I did get the raisins and the pudding is better.

I agree with you, a good strong breakfast makes the difference to whether
you are eating all day snackie and so forth.

I love melon....I got that from my Dad....lol

No, I do not think you are nuts. Have fun with what you consume!

You may think I am nuts since I eat four or five prunes each morning along with five dried apricot halves. Then we have the flaxseed and chia seed and apple cider. Then we have either cereal with fruit or poached egg and rock melon. Got to get a good start on each day. We are going to the Benevolent Lodge of Elks this morning for their breakfast buffet. It can be quite a social event too.

Next time we go to Huntsville we will go to Whole Foods and get some of the
non gluten flaxseed meal....thanks for the tip....no place here in Gadsden has
the Bob's Red Mill....guess I could look on Amazon....lol....I get various shades
of rice from them....Black wild grain etc....

I bet you will think I am nuts, u could be right.....but I found an article and then
talked to two ladies and I take 2 Tb. of Braggs Vinegar with the mother still in
it with a cup of water before I have coffee or anything.....after about 3 weeks I
have noticed a reduction in the joint inflammation....
I have been putting the chia in my smoothie, and then found a recipe for chia
pudding, but need to get some raisins for it, and it is a good snack....

Thanks for sharing info my friend and tell Sheila hey...

Darlene, Sheila and I went grocery shopping this Saturday evening and one of the items I was checking out was Flaxseed. The regular Bob's Red Mill Golden Flaxseed meal was gluten free whereas the Organic Flaxseed contained gluten. Did not make sense to me. And that one pound package cost $3.00 in the Market Basket grocery store.

And you probably remember I put one tablespoon of this Golden Flaxseed meal and one tablespoon of chia seed in five ounces of apple cider and let it gel up for about an hour. I have this cocktail every morning.. Sheila has only one tablespoon of the chia seed in her five ounces of apple cider. It doesn't get any better than this. This is living "New England Style"!

It is getting a bit cool here in September. We are supposed to be getting a frost one of these nights soon. (That is 32 degrees) It is getting down to the 40s regularly and up to 65 during the day. Good riding weather and we have not had any rain for some time either.

Our riding days for this 2014 season are about over. It starts getting too cold to ride. I will ride until the temperature gets to 45 degrees. Below 45 it can start to get uncomfortable for me anyway.

www.GetChia.com sells certified organic chia seed too. You can get just one pound from them but the three pound price is much better.

If you are getting organic chia in your local market for less than ten dollars you are doing real good. I have not checked lately but it probably would be closer to $15.00 per pound in our grocery store.

I will check out the price the next time we go to the market.

It is $9 something I think....for 1 and 1/4 lbs., organic
However, I am going to go to check on Amazon and see whether
they have Organic or not, at a better price.

I have been putting the chia in my smoothie.

The Almond Oil I get from Amazon is organic and it is lovely. Soaks in really well. Has
really helped my skin...

Wow - 12 pounds....that would be a lot for just me...thanks for posting the info though.
Chia doesn't have gluten in it and the flax seed does, so I am going to go with the chia for
awhile...

DARLENE, as an after-thought from my post over an hour ago.

We let the chia seed/flaxseed/apple cider sit for about an hour to let the mixture gel. You do not have to do that, it is something we found that we like it better that way.

What are you paying for your chia seed? I ordered the chia seed on line from GetChia.com and if I remember correctly it was about $6.19 or something like that. We get 12 pounds at each time we order.

Good morning DARLENE!

We put one tablespoon of chia seed in five ounces of apple cider (actually I also put one tablespoon of flaxseed with the chia seed in apple cider). Stir up and let it sit and then stir some more. If you just let it sit with not stirring it will form clumps in the cider. We have used other fruits to mix it with like orange juice or mango juice or a combination of juices. We found that it mixed well with the cider. Some grocery stores do not carry cider 12 months a year.

We did not ride this past weekend. Went to a family reunion Saturday in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. Sunday worked in the yard about three hours mostly cutting dead branches out of our apple trees.

We will probably not be riding this weekend. We have a family reunion to attend in Cape Elizabeth, Maine today. The "Miles Family Reunion" - the descendants from my grandparents on my mothers side of the family. My grandparents had seven children. Hopefully this is well attended.

Yes, I rode today. But it was only about 17 miles from work to home and back again. Yesterday we, my wife and I rode about 36 miles in the New Hampshire coastal area. It was a great day to ride.

Sorry about the hit....we have had several down here of late...and Sunday night they
had a shooting at a biker bar in Birmingham...2 wounded and 1 killed.

Seems like the world is going nuts.


We did start clearing out the garage today and put the tenders on the batteries....a beginning...

We had a rider hit and killed in Berwick, Maine. We live in Massachusetts but Berwick is not too far from us and this person could be a member of our HOG Chapter. Probably will find out tonight at our HOG Chapter meeting.

Put on 35 quality miles on my '93 today. Drove to the dealer for an oil change and filter and it cost almost $100.00. Amazing!

Had another motorcycle rider hit here in town yesterday. Have not been able to
find out if it is someone we know or how he is.

ours are just sitting in the garage. The heat and humidity are awful right now,
and of course someone has not been in the garage to clean it out, or even get
started cleaning/clearing...the cargo trailer is such a wreck you can't even get in
there for the stuff strewn all over the floor....
I told him if I have to get out there and start this, he will be going why did you throw
that away??????????????
