xmas update

Got a new bike yesterday, a GIANT upland.

I couldn’t really afford it, but thanks to the gratuity of friends and family (and God), by the time I got home I had more money than I had spent in my pocket..

Now _that_ is a christmas miracle.

I can now cycle 2-5km/hr faster. Yesterday I cycled 9km, then mowed the lawn, then cooked dinner. Not bad for an old fella.
