My Thoughts

The Way of the Bike

I have been asked countless times why I ride, followed right up by countless lectures of the dangers of it. Most of the time, these questions and lectures come from people who have either never ridden in their lives; or didn’t grow up around motorcycles so the more you try to explain your point, the more they refuse to understand the logic behind your actions.

Honeymoon Day 3 - Onwards

Didn’t have enough time to finish writing individual day posts so I just lumped them all together into one. This vacation was the best vacation I ever took in my life. It was not only the most relaxing and enjoyable experience of my life, but the fact that I got to enjoy this magical place with my wife (and best friend) made it all the more special to me.

Oh and by the way the view from our room is gorgeous! Just take a look:

In Death Comes Life

Yesterday we lost a member of our family … We lost Victoria the fish (Kitty’s). Kitty was very upset as both our lives have been plagued by many deaths (both family and non). So her fish passing struck a nerve and it was very hard to get over. We bought Victoria when we bough Vlad a little over a year ago and she was as much a part of our family as is any other pet. We will remember her forever. R.I.P.
