Euro no more, Yankee not yet

Passing the test today was the last step before becoming a US citizen. I correctly identified July 4th as independence day, the supreme court as the judiciary arm of government, and 4 other rather trivial issues. Also, I could correctly read and pronounce "the boy likes to ride his bike" and write "the girl is happy to be outside". Man, no wonder there are so many illegals, dat tezt wuz hoard, jentlemen. I cud not du it wizout Dirt teksting mee ze anzurs.

Anyway, here's the current status:


Citizenship Ceremonies:
You will be given notice of when to appear for your citizenship ceremony within 6-8 weeks after your approval notice. Citizenship ceremonies are held on Thursday and Friday afternoons at the Satellite Office located at 12000 E. 47th Avenue (diagonally across the street from the District Office


Should happen sometime late February or early March. Then, I will be free to wear my speedo without persecution. I will be free to do my Dutch altitude training without fear of deportation. I will be free to vote for Dirt in the next election. Is this a great country, or what????

top speed

"I reached a nice top speed down the finish straight - 75 kilometers an hour, not too bad," he said.


That's in a sprint, McEwen talking. How's that on the downhill?

By the way, Dirt, how was skiing and did you ride sunday? monday?

Hammerson, did you ride the new compacts yet?

Think Goals, Not Resolutions

Decent article from Chris Brewer on the Paceline today. My favorite paragraph:

Sure, riding across the good ol' U.S. of A. is a pretty cool concept, but as a cancer survivor (TC Class of '96, school motto, "Real men only need one") the opportunity to not only ride but do it to help in the fight against this damn disease was HUGE to me. Why was this one of the keys in my transformation? Achieving this goal was so important to me it overrode many of the bad habits I had in my life. I had a running joke that "…if you ride 300--400 miles a week, quit drinking alcohol and eating junk food, the weight just drops right off!"

Think Goals, Not Resolutions

Hint: TC = testicular cancer
