All Caught Up

I've finally finished the two posts that had been started last week but were floating around in "draft" limbo: One is about the two events that have happened on August 29 in recent years (Katrina, of course, plus my fifth anniversary as a homeowner), and the other has to do with an oddball mix of music and technology: A robot that plays Giant Steps. I just wanted to point these out so that they didn't get lost in the archives. Hope everybody's having a great Labor Day weekend so far.

A super-sized life? A guy in California lived to the age of 112, despite the fact that his diet mostly consisted of sausage and waffles.

And now back to the daily news nudes: Last year, during the Vermont trip, I recounted how a van full of our jazz band members happened upon the Burlington leg of the World Naked Bike Race while waiting at a stoplight. Evidently, this practice takes place quite a lot in Vermont, bike or no bike.

Heh, yeah, but that couldn't be much scarier than the dude we saw (more than we wanted to) being pulled on rollerblades behind someone's bike in the nude bike race. I just kept thinking, what if the bike took a corner too sharply and physics took over? OWWWWW!

Thanks buddy. I was trying to forget about that one. Now I'll need years of therapy. ;P
