Bicycles in Motion


This has been a busy week for me in regards to bikes moving through my life. Exactly one week ago today I sold the v1 Mundo to Derrick in Toronto. Then yesterday I received an email from someone who saw my trike listed on craigslist; they came by today and purchased it. The above picture is of the new owners of the trike: Jason, Andreea, and daughter. In the same way that I felt good about selling the Mundo to Derrick in Toronto because he was a "bicycle person," I felt the same today when I sold the trike to Jason and Andreea. As they looked at the trike Jason had a gleam in his eyes as he commented how he was going to restore it and the different modifications he planned on doing. To see pictures of the trike a couple years ago, before it sat outside under a tarp all winter, click here (I don't have enough room for my bikes, nor do I use them all, hence the reason I'm selling a few...I may be selling a tandem if anyone is interested).

But the big news of my week is that my shiny new v3 Mundo finally arrived today, and I couldn't be happier. It took me about an hour to put together, then I took it on about a 4 mile ride. All I can say thus far is that I love it (it's amazing what a few less pounds and many more gears can do). I'll post a full review of it in a week or so after I've become fully accuainted with it. Here it is below (I love the matte black color).

For about a month now I've been wondering what the hell these were hanging off the cucumber vines in my garden. When I googled orange cucumber I found that there are/were multitudes wondering the same thing. It also seems that most, like me, thought they were planting pickling cucumbers. As it turns out (from the best that I can tell) these are a somewhat new crossbred variety designed to be loaded with vitamins. To read short article about them at the website of the USDA click here. To see a photo of them compared to pickling cucumbers (what I thought I was planting) click here. They are interesting looking...and tasty, too...they have an almost acidic, lemony aftertaste to them...I s…

I eat a lot of bread; I always have. I eat bread virtually with every meal, and thus I feel that I am living proof that bread does not make a person fat. I find it odd that humans have been consuming bread in one form or another for something like 6 thousand years...and all of a sudden it is considered fattening. The problem, I think, is lifestyle and the quality of the bread you consume...I'll admit …

Ezekiel Bread...my interpretation

I've posted recipes for this bread--or variations of it--in the past on numerous occasions, but the two most popular are here and here. Those two posts, in fact, draw the largest amount of visitors to this blog everyday (through search engines, I imagine). Yup, I can carry things on my bike until I'm blue in the face, and talk about quotes and all things spiritual...but the topic that gets the most hits are my recipes for Ezekiel Bread.

This post is a little different in that I made the bread at home (opposed to at work in a commercial kitchen), and I did not use any refined (white) flour; just whole wheat. And for that reason the recipe is slightly different than the others (a printable recipe follows the pictures). This one, I believe, is more true...refined flour was unknown in biblical times. But I'm getting ahead of myself. In this post I also wanted to offer some of my personal views on Ezekiel bread and its recipes in general (I know what you're thinking...here…
