Sure we could blog about something serious, but why? It's Friday. We're too busy eating lunch to do any real writing.

Having a hard time getting back into the swing of the working world (not cracking open a beer for breakfast) after last weekend's debaucherous Sasquatch Festival? Take a few minutes this afternoon to reminisce about the not so distant past with us.

You can find the BW wrap-up of last weekend's Sasquatch Festival here. Hope everyone's recuperating nicely.

Does being overweight shorten one's torso?

Posted By on Fri, May 29, 2009 at 9:03 AM

54d6/1243610072-bike_grass.jpgFirst Foothills ride of the season last night leaves me with one question: Does an extra 20 to 30 pounds (from the winter, ok) shorten a guy's torso or arms?

Because last year my mountain bike was a tad small for me ... I was riding all hunched up. But last night it seemed to fit really well.

So if any docs or bike fitting experts out there know, please leave a comment below.

There's no place like Gnome

Posted By on Fri, May 29, 2009 at 7:14 AM

I've been called out on my Hazards of Gardening: gnome issue, not from a gnome, but from a friend who thought that the gnomes in my life would take offense.

First, I didn't mean any offense to any garden gnomes that hang around my gardens. They are a part of them. They protect them. It's just that in my perpetually impatient state, I often don't have time for them. I wish I had more. Maybe the universe is trying to tell me something.

Second, they are not all old. I actually have a few young garden gnomes that frequent my gardens.

Third, they don't all cough and wheeze. Sometimes they sneak up on my without a sound. They scare me sometimes because I didn't know they were there. I've taken to snapping my head around at the slightest bit of motion.

Fourth, most of the time they remain unseen.

Fifth, I often exaggerate for effect. But that is my prerogative.

Honoring Chu

Posted By on Thu, May 28, 2009 at 4:07 PM

Cyclists will honor one of their own on Friday, May 29 when they lead the funeral procession of Boise resident Jim Chu.

Chu died from injuries he received after being struck from behind by a van while he was riding his bike on Orchard Street on Tuesday, May 19.

All bicyclists who wish to honor Chu are invited by the family to help lead the procession from the Cathedral of the Rockies in downtown Boise to the Dry Creek Cemetery.

Funeral services will begin at 1 p.m., and volunteers from the Boise Bicycle Project will be on hand with racks to hold up to 50 bikes. The volunteers will also watch the bikes through the service.

The honor guard of bicyclists will begin assembling on 11th Street at 1:45 p.m. Anyone who participates in the ride is invited to attend the church service, but it is not required.

The graveside ceremony will be a private, family affair, so cyclists will leave the group when the procession reaches Hill Road.
