From the "critical and rational thinking " department:
Seven Warning Signs of Bogus ScienceThe most important discovery of modern medicine is not vaccines or antibiotics, it is the randomized double-blind test, by means of which we know what works and what doesn't.

This teddy bear is almost as old as I am. He was one of my first toys and my very first tool. Long before I learnt how to walk, I used him as a makeshift ladder to climb out of the baby cage in the back yard. My mother found me happily crawling around and exploring (something I enjoy doing to this day - exploring, I mean :) ). It took her a while to figure how on earth I got out of the cage :).
Thank you mom for providing me my first tool, keeping it safe all these years and sending me this picture to remind me of it. I love you.

If that truck was really coming my way there would be no chance to avoid becoming its hood ornament, even if I had both hands on the handlebar (which I didn't, left was holding the camera that took the picture :) ). Very scary and sobering thought.

Ergo, boosted by valuable input and encouragement from a dear friend, I'll make an effort to do the harder thing - keep it all in one place and share it with the world at large from here. Since blogging by nature does not encourage dialogue (I welcome and cherish all feedback, but it's not like any of it can turn into a ten page forum type discussion) and I don't want to become an Internet hermit I'll post mostly my own experiences and impressions. I'll be happy if folks like it, but even if no one even visits the blog I'll still be happy to create it - if for no other reason than to relive my experiences as I write about them.
So, from now on this blog will replace any and all Internet forums when it comes to ride/trip reports, sharing my direct experiences and similar musings. I will link to blog posts from various forums as I see fit.
