Le Tour De France

As the days grow shorter and the clouds invade the friendly skies of the Pacific Northwest, we know it won't be long now until the rains come. And when the rains come, they generally tend to stay longer than wanted, making outdoor activities quite a challenge. Well one company aiming to change how we participate in indoor activities is Pro-Form. They've designed an indoor stationary bike that has become the ultimate Tour De France training cycle. What's so special about this exercise equipment is the iFit Live technology that uses Google Maps to recreate actual cycling routes. 
Combine this advanced technology with a stationary bike that actually tilts recreating the feeling of ascending and descending elevated terrains as you would on a real bicycle.
Now wouldn't it be cool if this thing also added wind resistance, well it does, by creating a profile based on the riders height and weight, it knows how much resistance to add to recreate wind drag. With a price tag of about $1,200(US) this isn't much more expensive than other models, considering how Hi-Tech this it. If you want more information click this link to go to the products website.

Blogger Has Died

Dear friends, fans, and followers. For the past few months my blog has been overrun with errors, making changes very difficult (if not impossible). On numerous occasions I've attempted to reset my blogger template, install a new templates, and even restore from an older version but I'm still unable to add or remove specific content from my blogs template. The initial problematic area was the blog post section which refuses to accept any changes or alterations to the date, author, title or social media links. I have suffered through this problem, but as of late it appears that the layout is now no longer accepting changes, and when displayed is no longer centered. If anyone has suggestions on how to fix these blogger issues, please email me. As a result, I will no longer be updating, as its too difficult maintain this blog.

Duct Tape...It's Not Just For MacGyver Anymore

I came across this crazy site the other day called Duct Tape Fashion , which specializes in duct tape. Wait... I don't think I explained myself properly, there's a website dedicated to duct tape, and all things duct tape related. Ok, so maybe I did explain myself properly, WTF...really, duct tape. Well it seems duct tape isn't just for HVAC specialists and MacGyver anymore, it seems people are using duct tape to create all kinda of weird items like wallets, baseball caps, hats, bags, bracelets, purses, visors, and roses. Don't believe me, well check out some of these pics I got... Wallets Baseball Cap Hats Bags Bracelets Purses Visors Roses By: Mass
