My ride pics hosed... some kind of omen?funknuggets

Well, was trying to post my first ride report. This ride was hexed from the start, I blame it on daylight savings time. Not only was a road closed, a 7 mile detour I made ended in a bridge being closed, which resulted in another 7 mile detour. I should have just turned back, but nonetheless the day resulted in a couple of usable pics.

Not sure what happened, but I resized the jpgs from my camera with MSoft Paint, and it harked up some of the pics something terrible. They work at home, but not here at work. Bizarre. I will try again later. This whole ride was funked from the beginning. I did happen to get this pic to work, however. Fitting...

I took this photo op on the second 7 mile detour...

Um, no. You don't stop in Sugar Creek, Missouri for anything. You are either going to get shot or get cancer. I just stopped to click a pic. Although, I did get another pic in front of a bar in Sugar Creek that you all will enjoy... but it to is squirrelled up so you will have to wait for that one...

Could you explain...PEDDLEFOOT

Relatively... um, rednecky (see the bar picture I will post tonight or tomorrow... there is a banner that says something like: We Support America: Pass the Ammunition.)

Most questions about pollution in Sugar Creek focus on the former Amoco Oil Co. refinery site, where federal and state regulators have confirmed that groundwater polluted by petroleum products, benzene and other contaminants has migrated below residential property.

Those chemical levels are not high enough to present any acute or immediate danger. But many Sugar Creek residents have lived for decades near the refinery, raising concern that they already have been exposed for years to the contaminants.

Looking specifically for: Brain Tumors, MS, Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, and Leukemia. Has been recently a Level 3 inquiry looking for clusters, that is because both the level 1 and 2 indicated there was just cause. The last step would be a Level 4, but it was "concluded" that the cluster was not "excessive", and may have just been an anomaly... but who knows. There were several lawsuits and Amoco has been working for like 12 years to clean up contaminated soils.

Just got it a couple months ago, same color too - and love it. I went with the Campy Eurus wheels and all Record set-up.... I'm sure Mr. Liggett would approve of you snapping a pic by his mailbox.(not sure about Paul & Bob though - oh yeah - and Kirstin Gumm!).... ;>)

Speaking of my 381i - I think I'll go for a ride right now... It's a gorgeous fall day in CT. Time for a break from work!
