Fanboys having a SQUEE moment. This is LG clowning around with John Rutter.

Yes, this John Rutter http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Rutter

Rutter is here because the Choir at my church, along with a substantial contingent of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, is performing the world premiere of his newest major work the Creation Canticles this evening at 7:00 pm CDT.

It will be live streamed and I will post link later.

Update: live stream available here probably starting at about 6:50. Concert is scheduled for a 7:00 pm local (CDT) start.

Also, +Curtis Wenzel, I should admit that it is SWMBO who is the musician of the family and also the one who turned both of us on to Rutter.

I would like to post more about my lovely wife, but she doesn't like me social-media-izing about her.

I even tried to assure her that G+ is a ghost town and all yall who have me circled are, in fact, bots, but she still demurres...

Right now. For at least 24 glorious hours. I own the best looking plot in the community garden.

Now fully planted. Properly fertilized (organic, natch). Drip lines set properly. I'll leave it uncovered until it starts to get hot and then I'll mulch.

This year I'm not messing around with experimentals and fru fru heirlooms that can't grow when the temp clears 90 (32c) 'cause it's headed for triple digits by June.... I'm all in on Aggie approved varieties for NTX and only the basics: tomatoes, peppers, snap peas, basil and watermelon.

+Eric Hansen last year one of the other fellows in the garden grew Moruga Scorpions (which auto correct tries to render as Moria Scorpions) and gave me some.

I've planted 4 sweet bell, 2 poblano, two jalapeño, and one habanero. I should be set.

Kevin Brown knows. 

I was at the first ever home opener back in '96. I've been through a lot of seasons with this team. Read it and weep... he knows.

Burn (get it?) up your preseason predictions and spread the ashes across your yards in shame.

Night out for the boys dinner at Henk's the official Dutch deli and bar of Team Pressler. Me: Hungarian brat, kasewurst, potato salad, kraut and a spaten Oktoberfest. LG: hot Amsterdam, Apple sauce and lemonade. LG says the smell of the sandwich can bring a Dutchman out of a coma - smoked Dutch ham, smoked Gouda on rye.

Let us hope this does kill Football as we know it. I love the game, but I can no longer justify the permanent incapacitation of these children.

CHICAGO (AP) — The nation's first prep sports governing body to face a class-action concussions lawsuit has asked an Illinois judge to dismiss the suit, arguing that if it prevails, it could kill football programs statewide. In its 16-page motion filed in Cook County Circuit Court, the Illinois High School Association, or IHSA, says it and its 800 member schools have been proactive about improving head-injury management for the 50,000 football p...

The helmets are used as weapons. Something has to change. And I completely agree on rugby. Rugby players are taught to tackle correctly. American footballers are not. I'll still watch football but yeah. Changes need to be made.

April already?!?!
We need photos of your bikes

Post some good pics of your steeds for the community photo!

I am proposing a "changing of the seasons" theme: It's Spring in the north, Autumn in the south, and still a big tropical jungle in the middle. 

Remember, portrait orientation works best for the community photo.

Question: What's wrong with this bike?
Answer: see the note I left them if it isn't obvious to you.



Something new at the rack today and it scared me. Given that these Schwinns are only sold at big box retailers, the rider is likely a newbie. I went upstairs, wrote them a note and went back and taped it to the handlebars. I love when people try bike commuting and I want to make sure they have a good experience.

What's wrong with this bike is its insecurity about the direction it's going. Hence, the reversed front forks.

This is what he's got on there. I put some of this tape on one of my bikes. It is a very rubbery and tacky material. Anyone who values a tacky grip over comfort will probably love it. I would not buy again. I prefer a plain old cork tape. Besides, Lizarskins are pricey, and for the same money I could get the Spesh faux-leather tape which I really like.

Introduction
I'm an economist by education and a techie by vocation.

I enjoy cycling, photography, soccer, and good libations.  

Just about all content I post, including photos, are shared under non-commercial creative commons.  Some things are all rights reserved.  Please check before using.

What others are saying about Adam:

+Adam Pressler : protohipster. He liked things before before they were cool. 

The troll train catches +Adam Pressler; he backpedals and pretends he meant to ride slowly the whole time as he yells "It's not a race!" though his sweat soaked jersey belies his true intentions.

Oh, Adam... You're a  never-ending fountain, constantly spewing "win"

Adam, your hair appears to be injection molded and your mother dresses you funny.

You sure +Adam Pressler ? I might cut your chicken wings clean off. 

You need to either stop drinking or stop talking.
