Could Valentine's Day be the most hated holiday ever? If Facebook and Twitter are any indication . . .YES! What the hell is wrong with people that makes them hate other people expressing their love? Is it just that V-Day, and for that matter almost every other holiday, has been usurped by Hallmark? No, it can't be that. Mother's Day is in the same boat. Endless advertisements urging you to get dear old mom some flowers, chocolates, dinner out, etc. No one complains because everyone loves their mom.
THAT is the difference. There are so many, bitter, empty, jaded, spiteful people who rant against the day because THEY have been, or still are, unlucky in love. Been there myself. And it sucks. But for ^$*(@%@$&* sake, leave the rest of us alone to enjoy our better halves. Is it really that hard to just say, "Hey look, they seem to be in love. Good for them?"
Thanks for reading. Now, go back to your carton of Ben & Jerry's, Sex & the City re-runs and your cat(s).

It's no secret that there are tons of treasures to be found in the smaller towns in the Black Hills. From art, history, wineries, breweries, Native culture, biking (both bicycles and motorcycles), and of course there's Deadwood - the party capital of the Black Hills. Old west gunfights, the search for gold, prostitution (pre-1980's), gambling, drinking, concerts and special events. LOTS of special events! The hard work by the Chamber of Commerce, City Government, private citizens and tourists alike can now be rewarded with the title of America's Coolest Small Town. If you're so inclined, please click the link and vote for our very own Deadwood.

It must have taken hours and thousands of dollars to pull off a prank of this magnitude. Good thing these guys were sponsored by the beer maker. Imagine you just come home from errands with your wife and every tap in your house is pouring ice cold, delicious beer! Perhaps this is a Super Bowl party waiting to happen . . .

I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend. I got to spend some time with friends and family and doing one of my favorite hobbies: riding my motorcycle through the Black Hills. Even though the weather was gorgeous and practically perfect for riding on Sunday, I didn't have a very enjoyable ride. Usually the worst thing that happens is that I get stuck behind a group of tourists that don't know how to drive at a decent speed through the hills. This did happen, but it wasn't what ruined my ride.
I don't know what it was, but it was like every single bug decided to be in my path. Here's a picture I took after I got blinded by bug guts:
It wasn't just my glasses that got nailed, so did my nose, ears, lips, throat, pretty much my whole head. I'm pretty sure I decreased the bug population in the Hills by 50%...so as I titled this post, make sure that you always wear eye protection if you're riding...

Before Vin Diesel became famous with The Fast and the Furious
, he starred in a sci-fy flim Pitch Black
as Riddick. Pitch Black
was a lot of fun, and this is the latest in the Riddick series, which looks like it'll be a lot more like Pitch Black
(Awesome movie) than The Chronicles of Riddick
(not so awesome movie). Can't wait to see it.
