THIS IS THE END

I hope I don't offend anyone here, but here's my view on the "new end" this Saturday. Every couple of years, for every generation some group interprets when the End is going to occur using some new revelation obtained from bible interpretation. Every group seems to think their right, until the day after. This has been going on for centuries. I'm not worried about it. I enjoy my life now, more then I ever have, but if the end is going to come, then I'll get in the check out line, check out and see what happens next.
This Saturday is the "new end date" I'll be out on a country road, riding a bicycle, for a metric century. I will be disappointed if the cold beer in the refrigerator goes to waste and I don't return.
Seriously however, if this does nothing else but causes some to reflect on how precious life is, and the importance of our relationships with those we love, then I say thanks again End Timers.
Tonight after work I was able to ride a bike, lift weights, stretch and watch American Idol. Can it get any better then that?
Tomorrow night it is outdoor music and beer, YaHoooo!!!!!

Ok, I think I should zip it now.

Awesomely enough, there's a gravel ride in Oregon celebrating this.

Un-awesomely enough I volunteered to help tear the roof off a friends house on Saturday. If it starts raining hellfire I'm taking shelter under the beer cooler.
