Shout out to ToadMama for this blogger challenge. It’s something I look forward to doing. Odd that I needed someone to setup a challenge for me like this.
ToadMama is a biker chick. She posts about various rides she’s done. As such, it’s no surprise that she would include a travel oriented blog post category.
I love riding and I love my bike. As such, when I saw the challenge for today, my mind immediately went into daydream mode.

I don’t know if the internet has enough storage space for me on this one. There is a word that is used by people who like to puff themselves up and sound important. I’ve done some research on it. It actually *is* a word, but even the good folks at Dictionary.com call it “a clunky one”.

Today’s BBBC entry is simply titled “Today”. I could do something emotional about how lucky I am to have my health, a job and a loving family. I could do something profound; perhaps discussing my relationship with my father and how it impacts the relationship with my kids.
No… I’m not doing that sort of thing.

This is an interesting topic. An everyday item in your house. What’s an everyday item? Something I use everyday or just something I have? Something that everyone has? Something that I use that I’m attached to or proud of? Hmmm….
I think I’ll go with a seasonal everyday item. My incense houses.

Well I could cheap out and say read this, but that’s no fun. The BBBC (Brave, Bold, Blogger Challenge) is about new content and keeping things fresh. Plus, I get the feeling my “About Me” page is probably a little stale.

As a new rider and as someone I care about and love, I am really excited to introduce you to motorcycling! Motorcycling is something that gets under your skin. The phrase “four wheels moves the body, two wheels moves the soul” is exactly right.
However, as a new rider and as someone I care about and love, I want to make sure you are as safe and as responsible as possible. I came up with a list of rules for you to follow.
These are non-negotiable. Continue reading Rules for a new teenage rider
Despite common sense, we’ve added to the stable. By we I mean me. My wife wasn’t exactly thrilled about it, but grudgingly she accepts my sickness and need to have more motorcycles.
The firstborn child is 17 and has expressed interest in riding. I’d like to think that he wants to spend time with his old man out on the open road. I’d like to think that he wants to use motorcycles as many of us do, do create a special bond not only as father and child, but as brothers on the road. Continue reading A new pony in the stable
I’m not sure what the heck is really going on here, but for some reason, sometimes I can’t delete files and folders. I get an error message telling me:
Could not find this item
This is no longer located in E:\. Verify the item's location and try again.

This is yet another one of those things that I never remember how to do and always have to look up. It’s not that hard… It’s just one of those “do it once and forget it” kinds of things.
Logging with EntLib6 is really nice. It’s highly configurable and provides predictable results.
