That other Scott says:

If you have TimeWarner digital cable, go to channel 123. Scroll to the section labelled "Tour" and then watch any stage of the Tour de France you want, anytime, for free.

If you don't have TWcable... don't go to channel 123 and yada yada yada...

more from my old man

Between 18 and 22, a woman is like Africa, half
discovered, half wild, naturally beautiful with
fertile soil.

Between 23 and 30, a woman is like America, well
developed and open to trade, especially for someone
with cash.

Between 31 and 35, a woman is like India, very hot,
relaxed and convinced of her own beauty.

Between 36 and 40, a woman is like France, gently
aging but still warm and a desirable place to visit.

Between 41 and 50, a woman is like Great Britain,
with a glorious and all conquering past.

Between 51 and 60, a woman is like Yugoslavia, lost
the war and haunted by past mistakes.

Between 61 and 70, a woman is like Russia, very wide
and borders are now unpatrolled.

After 70, she becomes Tibet. Wildly beautiful, with a
mysterious past and the wisdom of the ages....only
those with an adventurous spirit and a thirst for
spiritual knowledge visit there.

Between 1 and 70, a man is like Iraq (formerly) -
ruled by a dick.

jokes from the old man

Art Gallery

A couple attending an art exhibition at the National

Gallery was staring at a portrait that had them

completely confused. The painting depicted three
very black, totally naked men sitting on a bench.

Two of the figures had black penises, but the one in

the middle had a pink penis.

The curator of the gallery realized that they were

having trouble interpreting the painting and offered

his assessment. He went on for nearly half an hour

explaining how it depicted the sexual emasculation

of African-Americans in a predominantly white,

patriarchal society.

"In fact," he pointed out, "some serious art critics

believe that the pink penis also reflects the cultural

and sociological oppression experienced by gay men

in contemporary society."

After the curator left, an Irishman approached the

couple and said, "Would you like to know what the

painting is really about?"

"Now why would you claim to be more of an expert

than the curator of the gallery?" asked the couple.

"Because I'm the guy who painted it," he replied.

"In fact, there are no African-Americans depicted at

all. They're just three Irish coal-miners.
The guy in the middle went home for lunch."

words of wisdome from my dad

So, if the US government determines that it is against the law for the words "Under God" to be on our money, then, so be it.

And if that same Government decides that the "Ten Commandments" are not to be used in or on a Government installation, then, so be it.

And if "under God" is eliminated from our Pledge of Allegience, so be it.

And since they already have prohibited any prayer in the schools, on which they deem their authority, then so be it..

I say, "so be it," because I am a law abiding US citizen.

I say, "so be it," because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions.

I would like to think that those people have the American People's best interests at heart.


Since we can't pray to God, can't Trust in God and cannot Post His Commandments in Government buildings, I don't believe the Government and it's employees should
participate in the Easter and Christmas celebrations which honor the God that our Government is eliminating from so many facets of American life.

I'd like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter. After all, it's just another day.

I'd like the US Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter as well as Sundays. After all, it's just another day.

I'd like the Senate and the House of Representatives not have to worry about getting home for the "Christmas Break." After all it's just another day.

I'm thinking that a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved if all government offices & services would work on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter. It shouldn't cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be "politically correct."

In fact.... I think that our government should work on Sundays (initially set aside for worshiping God....) because, after all, our government says that it should be just another day. What do you all think?

If this idea gets to enough people, maybe our elected officials will stop giving in to the minority opinions and begin once again, to represent the majority of ALL of the American people.

HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY everyone is friends again. lets get to the real matter at hand w/ you motherfuckers talking shit about single speeds. its on and i mean ON!! you motherfuckers are going down. what did you say about a chainsaw to your log contraptions cvo? and remember, i know where you live. and other scott- i know where you work. i got a single speed steel toed boot ready for both of your gearhead skulls. damn! its go time. just kidding. i take it back. lets hold hands and sing "we are the world." or better yet, "i'd like to buy the world a coke."

scott- you could always get one of those comfort bike h2o botle cages that fit on your handlebar. then you could get a super long straw that leads right up to your mouth. it would be sweet. the 40+ female comfort bike crew would dig on it. it may get you a date. GOD knows none of us fools are getting any dates as a result of our h2o bottle cages...let alone anything else. wait a minute, i'm married. but i know for a fact that my lifelong commitment to one person had nothing to do w/ my h2o bottle cages.

you ever have a ride- nothing special- just riding your bike and it just feels right? like there is nowhere else you would rather be? chances are that if you are reading this, you have. i went for a brief ride tonight- more like transport from point A to point B- a watering hole to be exact- met up w/ some compadres then rode w/ one so he could go home then rode myself home. like i said- nothing special. nothing to write home about and especially, and thank GOD, nothing "epic." just a ride. but it was great. great in the sort of way that 2 or 3 years from now, i will look back and think of my brief pedal fest tonight and think it was great. fuck, i'm starting to sound all hippy and flower-like. fuck. fuck you.

Zach B in town

well rummor has it Z is in town,
and he's getting hitched I hear as well.

anyone know where he is?
tell him to give me a call.

I'll bet he's heading to dad's beer night at Duff's might have to make a showing after I check the tour out tonight.


beer butt chicken

1 whole chicken
1 tall can o' beer (my preference: 16 oz. old style)
olive oil
4 cloves garlic crushed
salt and black pepper
outdoor grill w/ lid large enough to cook chicken upright

6 pack your favorite beer (optional)

seasoning for chicken (or use a seasoning blend or your own favorites):
4 cloves garlic, crushed
fresh basil
a pinch of cayenne
salt and pepper

start with a hot grill (coals all white and ready to cook). OPEN THE TALLBOY and drink about 1/4 of that can of beer. why? If you ever use this recipe and stick an unopened can of beer up a chicken?s . . . place an unopened can of beer inside the chicken, the top of your grill may need replacing. beer butt chicken may become rocket chicken. set the 3/4 full can aside and have a couple of full ones, real beer ?no sissy light/low-carb stuff.

get the chicken ready for cookin'. trim some of the fat, get rid of the giblets. rub liberally with ingredients above or use your favorite meat rub. some folks like zartarain's or some such store bought concoction, but whatever.

drop crushed garlic into the 3/4 tallboy can.
drop crushed garlic into your buddy's drink when not looking (optional).

oil up the tallboy can and lower that chicken over top of it. the beer can goes into the chicken's body cavity and allows the bird to stand upright. once you stop laughing put the chicken on the grill.

now close the lid, talk, socialize and drink beer for an hour and a half. hopefully you're not by yourself when you do this... talking that is. also, avoid talking to the chicken. people will wonder what brand of crack you switched to.

cook the chicken until its wings are loose and the skin turns clear.

remember: when removing the bird from the grill, the can will be really HOT. I say that because you've been drinking beer for an hour and a half and may have forgotten it's been sitting on a hot grill. when you remove the can it will be almost full. be careful and use tongs and an oven mit.

this beer-in-the-rear chicken is the juiciest bird you'll ever try. I also like the aspect of theater when you cook it, because it looks so damned weird on the grill.

PC told me to get off my ass and go for a ride :)

I don't know if Paul Chapman has ever visited this sight, I don't have his e-mail to tell him about it. (hint hint)
But last night in my dream he told me to get off my fat ass and go for a ride.
of course it was winter, and there was 3-5 inches of snow on the ground, and we were leaving the bike shop alley behind the tigh house. PC looks right into my eyeballs and says, "hey, get off your ass and go ride your bike".

It was like he was talking to me in my dream about going for a ride tonight.

so, i'd better do it.

I ran into PC & KB last week when I was going for a ride with Drew. He and KB offered to let me come along with them while I was waiting for the Fraz...
needless to say I was too scared and out of shape to look them in the eye and say no way. I needed more food to go with them. I'd have felt way worse trying to keep up with those two hammer monkeys.

I had a hard enough time keeping up with Drew. Man, he just accelerates so fast on that 29er. It was like we were sprinting every time we came to a stop sign. ( I thought I was riding with PC and KB for a while)

Anyone want to go cruz around after work tonight?
I don't know how much rain we got, but i'm gonna work my way out to wilderness to see, at least to ride the log ride once or twice.
and if it's dry enough maybe pull a half lap out there. who know's
I get off at 5pm today.
ride, 6-6:30ish?

check ya latter

The only time I could pass anyone on the B.U.S.S. was on the hills because I had to pound it so fuckin hard. I am using 34:17 now what do you guys think I should use for Hitchcock and the caves ?? scott
