obligitory year-end post

i've had better years, but don't know if i've had much worse. not that it couldn't have been. 2 surgeries were not fun. lots of good riding though. teaching has been great. we had a cycling race in sioux falls. the wife's health is better. my dogs have been healthy and enjoyable. monk's, of course. fab is running strong. parents/inlaws had surgeries of their own, but are healed now.

here's to a CiTyBiLLy nEW YeAR!!

to gator bowl or not to gator bowl

thE kErnEl has never been to a husker bowl game. that is sad, but true. the opportunity has arisen this year, a couple of times, to go to the gator bowl on 1/1. my partners in crime and i are now looking at the weather forecast as we don't want to spend 4 hours in the rain. it would be warm rain though. the gator bowl is in jacksonville, fl for those of you who don't know and actually care. i'd put the odds right at 50/50 now. go big red.

Happy Birthday to Monk's

Since I moved to SF in the early 90's, thE kErnEl has searched for a place to drink good beer. A year ago, the search ended. Monk's House of Ale Repute has earned many a distinction in it's first year of serving fine beers & thE kErnEl has created some great memories there.

Beginning Monday 12/22 Monk's will be celebrating it's 1st birthday party. thE kErnEl will be there - maybe for 2 straight weeks! So come join me in the festivities.
