Okay, well, we don't exactly "bring" you Bike to Work Week, but I'm sure most of us are Bike Fed members. And if you're not, you should be.
     Nevertheless, there are fun events all over town this week, starting with this morning's very well-attended Bike vs. Car at Rainbow Jersey, followed by coffee and yummy baked goods at the Urban Ecology.  Here's a link to all the activities this week:  
     Today we had another stunning (though aye, a wee bit chilly) swim.  I was thinking that yesterday's storms might have stirred up the lake, but she remains crystal clear.

Shorewood Men's Club 45th Annual Bar-B-Q

Yum. Yum. Yum.

What's better than going for a nice swim in the lake, seeing a historic shipwreck, then coming back to shore AND HOLY COW, THERE'S A RACK OF BBQ RIBS, OR A HOT CHICKEN DINNER, AND A BEER WAITING FOR ME!!!! WOW, WHAT COULD BE BETTER?

I have tickets for this Saturday's Shorewood Men's Club BBQ at Atwater Park. Currently, I have 8 BBQ Rib Dinner tixs (just $13 each), and 12 BBQ Half-a-Chicken Dinner tixs (just $10.50 each). The money raised goes to scholarships and other worthy projects. Send me an email ( if you want to reserve tixs. Thanks!

Please, kindly tell the lake to save some cold water for me. I am to arrive in town around July 1st, and will be staying for 2-3 weeks. Happy swimming! I may even be persuaded into bringing some of my newly famous "Jolly Lamprey" candy. The official candy slogan of Jolly Lamprey is "suck the slime, taste the brine"
