some words give me more pleasure than points... this word in the upper left hand corner gave me both


Chrome Cast... I am going to get this

there is so much great stuff on the Web
but not always great stuff on the Television
YOUTUBE and other streaming videos never seem to play through NETFLIX
so... I am stepping up and getting CHROMECAST

35 Bucks?
AWESOME

25 dollars for a 25 year old bike... THAT IS A DEAL!


actually... the bike is older than that

thinking of Scud.

I just started reading this... liking her list already

Chantielle MacFarlane has a list
14 Fucks I reuse to Give in 2014
https://medium.com/

read the bullet points
now getting the meat of the message

but before I finish this
I have to walk the dog
slept in and well... he has been patient while I made coffee and got sucked into the electronic world

Bats, Butterflies, and Bees...

the world has so many problems
some of these problems more complicated than others
while other problems seem to have solutions
the decline of bats, butterflies, and bees?

how hard would it be to slow and then reverse the decline of these species in our area

bat boxes and butterfly gardens would be an easy place to start
toss in a butterfly box and well... you are ahead of the game

EVER SCHOOL SHOULD HAVE A BUTTERFLY GARDEN AND A SERIES OF BAT BOXES

problem solved

field trips and science fair projects
it should be that simple

do I just talk the talk or do I walk the walk?
a few years ago I hosted a "BIKE SWAP" at my kids' elementary school
I used profits from this event and purchased two plants
milkweed and also a butterfly bush

BIKE SWAP at John Eaton

maybe I should try to host another one of these in the spring

the messenger is a strange breed... they spit on people... they flip people off... they shrug off various laws and social responsibilities... but I have never seen a group of people hang on more tightly to their friends... it is beautiful... I am thankful to be on the periphery of this subculture

Damien Dutkewytch

anyone out there in touch with Damien's family

I am getting ready for the end of the year lists... what will Fatmarc list?


FATMARC

Fatmarc slips in tidbits of wisdom in between his rants about bikes and nachos

Gwadzilla Mention of FATMARC
FANTASTIC RANDOMNESS
http://gwadzilla.blogspot.com/search?q=fatmarc
including a story about why I go that massive trophy 

WOOKIES DON'T NEED NO BRAKES!


the Mormon Temple... we did not go chasing lights this holiday season


other than Elf and Lethal Weapon we did not watch many Christmas movies
not Die Hard and none of those great animated classics

Orca Marathon... WATCH THESE FILMS...


BLACKFISH

The Whale

and if you have not seen The Cove... make it a water mammal trilogy!


DCist has a video of drunk people falling in the DC Metro stations... so happy these people are not driving!

I will admit... this is funny
so if you are watching from work
be careful...  I think I pulled a muscle laughing
not sure when I had such a good laugh

hope no one got seriously hurt

good ride... glad I rode yesterday
today was too cold and too wet to do anything other than nap
