:hmm: And no, I'm not going :loony:

Tonight is the Winter Solstice which means the evenings will start drawing out again, Spring will soon be on the way with (hopefully) a good Summer to follow that :hyper:

technically the sun has been setting later since early december
no. that is not accurate unless your in the southern hemisphere. to this point the days have been getting progressively shorter and shorter. from today (dec 21st) till christmas eve are the shortest days of the year and are for all intents and purposes the same length. december 25th (christmas) is actually the first longer day of the cycle.

i think the full moon before the spring equinox will be the time to get the bike back on the road :) time to get wrenching! there is a lot of maintenance to go. did 13000 miles on my main bike this past riding season!

Today is a beauty!
I know and there is no way I can get out of work early as my boss has been in hospital for the last week and probably about now is in theatre having her hip replacement done..

Mind you I shall thoroughly :evilaugh: enjoy the ride home from work later :thumb:
