Cheap ‘n easy remedy for stress

Yesterday I did two out of the ordinary things, which both turned out to be lovely and now are on my “Do more often” list. I had to drop off a DVD at a client about two miles away.  Decided to forego the car and ride my bike, which I use often in my personal Read more…

Tonight I went on what was advertised as the “Last pub crawl of the summer…Let’s ride!”  Biking,beer and nightfall – who wouldn’t think that’s a great idea? Went to three bars I had never been to (Archie’s, Rite Liqours, and Mickey’s).  Would’ve been five bars but I wimped out before Small Bar and Christina’s.  Midnight on Read more…
