I have a confession to make: until just recently I haven't been on my bicycle much the past year.
I know, I know, shame on me. The fact of the matter is, the job I'd held for almost fourteen years ended late last year, and I let it affect my riding schedule. I used to commute at least a couple times per week (and often more) via my bike even in the winter months (AND I even won the Bike To Work Challenge among my fellow employees one year, yeah boiiii!), but I had fallen into the…Continue

I'm reading Chelsea Cain's The Night Season, her fourth novel featuring Portland Police Detective Archie Sheridan and his nemesis, the seductive and vicious serial killer Gretchen Lowell (the fifth in the series, Kill You Twice, has just been released ohmygaw!)

I'd say that there are wares available for anyone…Continue
