Mountain bike racing on Raccoon Mountain

Well, I did not really go mountain bike racing. But Amy and I watched a few of our friends racing mountain bikes on the great trails of Raccoon Mountain here in Chattanooga and we we had a great time doing that. I also realized that I missed mountain biking a bit.
We took a few pics too, but only the static ones worked out.

Our good friends Paul and Anita

Mark McOmie and Peter Woodrow

Moving day

The movers are here and are packing up our stuff. It slowly feels like it is getting real. Bye Bye Chattanooga :-(

Winston-Salem here we come. :-)

Germany wins over Portugal and advances to the semi finals of Euro2008. Enough said.

Happy boy

I am actually very happy and I think this is a great logo :-)

Well it is final now

We finally got the signed apartment lease and that gives us the peace of mind that we indeed have a space to live in Winston-Salem while our house is being built. It is a bit smaller and a floor below than the one we originally thought we would get, but it is a similar style and still pretty cool. So that means the Piedmont Leaf Lofts will be our home for the next year.

Take back the Tour

Yes indeed we all own the Tour, so let us Take back the Tour. Nice little marketing effort of the Versus network, but something that is most likely close to mind of most passionate cycling fans.

Microsoft cool?

Fast Company magazine recently pondered the question "Can Hotshot Ad Guy Alex Bogusky Make Microsoft Cool?" My very fast response to that question would be NOPE.
But I would for love Alex Bogusky of Crispin Porter Bogusky fame to prove me wrong.

We can solve it

If Reverend Al Sharpton and Pat Robertson can come together when it comes to the urgency of protecting the planet, I think we all can come together too. Why not sign up for and show them that you care for our planet too. Let's make sure our kids and their kids have a beautiful planet left.

Duellanti magazine

I have never had a Duellanti magazine in my hands so I can't speak for its content, but the ads below certainly got my attention. Their site is not even up and I am still curious.

Alright Hillary

It is time to admit defeat. Seriously.

An architect's rendering

We received some better renderings of our new house in Winston-Salem and it really seems to come together now. The plan is to get it LEED Gold certified and if all goes well we should be in it by this time next year. The exterior is a mix of corrugated metal and hardiplank cement siding. Colors are not yet determined.

Our architect send us also the first rendering of the inside of our new home. Ignore the furniture and colors, but that is roughly what it will look like inside.
