Stolen Bike

EP's bike was stolen from outside Misty's Downtown this evening around 8pm. It's the green Surly Karate Monkey that's stickered so heavily you can't tell it's a Karate Monkey... you know the one. If you've got a photo, throw it up here and keep your eyes peeled. Thanks.

The Postcard Project

Long time, no post. The first series of postcards for The Postcard Project was sent on Monday. Twenty four unique postcards were sent to twenty four different people. Starting next month, twelve unique postcards will be sent to twelve different people each month. That's 144 postcards by the end of the year. I'd like to send them to 144 different people. Are you on my list?

To see the first series of postcards, where they went, and to sign up for The Postcard Project, visit (pass it on)


Fob is in China!

He send a picture of the Beijing Airport as proof. Best of luck in his travels.
