Concussions

Feb/05/2013 in Focus Aid, General

Tim Reed

Jan/31/2013 in General

Every once in a while I do a Q&A and get more that I bargained for.  Tim Reed's humor is awesome.  He started off by asking me: Let's say you were gay and not married.  Who are you most attracted to out of Crowie, Greg...

Weather Rollercoaster

So last week I was posting about getting into shape and how it is difficult to get a good gauge in fitness during the frigid winter months.  Two weeks ago I was talking about how to pack the winter saddlebag because you do not want...

Motivation

Jan/08/2013 in General

A few days ago I was watching the Discovery Channel and it showed two people having sex in an MRI tube.  When any sane person sees this they are not changing the channel.  The program was the Anatomy of Sex and like anybody I watched it...

Jan/03/2013 in General
