The Cubs have hired Theo Epstein, as anyone who hasn't been under a rock would know by now. He, in turn, has hired Hoyer as GM and McCleod as V.P.,Player Development. The Boston Holy Trilogy has been reassembled in Chicago. This is a major change for the Cubs, who have always had one of the smallest front office groups in the Majors. Big test. Sink or swim, Theo. Sink or swim.
I now possess a Spin Doctor Essential II Work Stand. This will be the tool which makes it much easier to work on bikes. Speaking of bikes, I now have eight bikes of my own and one neighbor's bike in my garage. They all need some form of repair or other, and I'm going to spend the Winter getting them all ready for the Spring, when riding season re-commences in the Midwest.
Rumor has it there may be a bicycle in my stocking for Christmas. heh. A new one. That I don't have to fix - just maintain. Sweet.

This year, like every year, I'm faced with a dilemma - what to get LM (Love Muffin). Especially since Christmas is so soon after her birthday - which is ten short little days from now. Oy.
I love the English - I love their expressions. "Blimey" "Wonky" "Mate" "Cheers" Last evening I was reminded of my very favorite Englishism: They say, when a business fails, or process goes defunct - they say it's "Gone titsup". I think that is so luridly descriptive.
