Is that Expensive?

I am sitting in a training event on Voice Over IP telephony, when the presenter puts up this slide on the projector. I almost instantly start laughing and several folks look at me funny. After a few minutes, a few more read the bottom line of the slide and begin to chuckle as well.



My question is this, is that a bargain or REALLY expensive?

"Friends"



seen on ADVRider and had to share.

So you buddy at work wants to ride your new Buell Blast. Perhaps you should ask if he has ever ridden a motorcycle. Maybe familiarize him with the clutch (friction zone lesson) and even the controls. If he hasn't ridden, for the love of all that is holy, say no and send him to a MSF riding class.

Y'all Beware


...evidently there are Pirates in minivans out there. Be on the lookout. ARRR

Yeah, when I pulled into the empty parking spot in between an SUV (soccermom using verionwireless) and a minivan, I did a double take when I saw the pirate on the minivan's radio antenna. I felt sorry for them having to ride around so secluded from the world around them, insulated from the sunshine, the wind, the feeling of being alive. No wonder dogs want to stick there heads out of the windows of their owner's cages rolling down the highway.

Enjoy the weekend. It should be beautiful riding, watch for the minivan pirates.

Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day!

"On July 2, 1776, the Second Continental Congress presented & debated a second draft of the list of grievances, and John Hancock, the president of the Second Continental Congress, was the first to sign. The document, called the Declaration of Independence, was treasonous against the crown and the fifty-six men who signed it were in danger of being executed.

Independence Day is celebrated on July 4 because that is the day when the Continental Congress adopted the final draft of the Declaration of Independence. From July 8, 1776, until the next month, the document was read publicly and people celebrated whenever they heard it. The next year, in Philadelphia, bells rang and ships fired guns, candles and firecrackers were lighted. But the War of Independence dragged on until 1783, and in that year, Independence Day was made an official holiday. 1941 Congress declared 4th of July a federal holiday." - homeschooling.about.com (read the rest of the article).

To everyone serving in the United States Armed Services (all branches): Thank you for protecting the freedoms that the citizens of the United States (and a lot of others) take for granted. We appreciate your service and dedication and hope you are home with your families in short order.

I hope that everyone has the opportunity to hang out with their family over this weekend.

God Bless the United States of America.
