Blueprinting the Mojo

Perfect timing! Brian (in the photo) just got 3 new facing tools and we put them to use on the BB shell, stearer tube and fork crown. It was the perfect complement to the sweet paint job. Emailed Chuck at ibis bikes and he says the decals should be here within a day or two. Now all that needs to be done is take it down the yellow brick road to Sety the "wizard" and let him dial it in. When finished the Mojo will look better than new. I'll post photo's as they become available. Can't wait to ride on Sat with Brian, Sety, Eugena, Ivy and Cathy, Kiowa and Haley.

Like everything American - I supersized

Luminous flux is often used as an objective measure of the useful power emitted by a light source. Energy conscious consumers (Use LED's) commonly compare the luminous flux of different light bulbs, since it provides an estimate of the apparent amount of light the bulb will produce, and is useful even when comparing different technologies.
It is wrong or at least imprecise to refer to luminous flux as a measure of "brightness" since, for example, a nearby source of light may appear much brighter than a faraway source with much higher luminous flux. This is because not all of the emitted flux is received by your eye, and you receive less flux from sources that are farther away. In general, brightness has no unambiguous scientific meaning, and should be used only for nonquantitative references to physiological sensations and perceptions of light. luminous flux is the measure of the perceived power of light. It differs from radiant flux, which is the measure of the total power of light emitted, in that luminous flux is adjusted to represent the sensitivity of the human eye.
Brightness may be ambiguous scientifically but luminous flux thankfully is not. [Power of light /surface are] means I can run and bike faster. oh oh oh

Ultracentric 48/24 hr Run y PTSD

On Friday I finnished my last final for Q5:) For everyone who was praying and fasting, good news I did well in all my classes. I covet your prayers-thank-you. Please don't let up. In my academic weakness he truly made me strong. Right now I am relishing eveything the Lord is teaching me. In truth though I can't wait to get back into a clinical setting next fall. Hopefully in Denver or back in CS- should know Dec 8 where I will be assigned.

For my respite from a hard quarter I flew to Fort Worth helped Dr Lovy crew him and his friends who were trying to make the US National Team and go to the World Championship 24 hr race. I also spent time with him as he helped veterans evaluate whether or not they have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD. Needless to say the trip was an invaluable experience.

a Nabel indwelling in me- A Saviour gently restoring me

My flesh is weak and my mind even weaker. Oh how I want to live more fully with delight instead of living in duty. How great is it that our/my saviour saves me from myself. How amazing that we have a Saviour who frustrates the intelect and the proud, my pride included, and outstretches his calloused, cut, pierced, and yet gentle hand to restore me into a right relationship with Him.

Finals et all

Busy Studying after spending hours holding my Snowpeak chopsticks between my 2nd and 4th knuckles so I could learn to pick up a m&m and roll in back and forth without dropping it. I see a possible application for a foray into General Surgery. If only I had the inattentive form of ADHD.

Trying to remember what climbing is like. The Wealth of medical information is pushing my memories out to make room for the new imaterial. Thankfully a picture can tell a 1000 words!

Can't wait to climb at Christmas:)
