I have made a quick way to view the Maryland Lottery winning numbers over the last few days, mainly for use by cell phones since the information is so plain and downloads very quickly and takes very little bandwidth. So if you want the winning numbers for the Maryland Lottery check out my web page at http://hometownnerd.co.cc/lottery Thanks for reading.

Well, I finally acquired a road bike, found it on a service called freecycle, which has a lot of stuff offered up by people that they no longer want or need and would like to see it go to a good home instead of the dump or sell it. The bike was a 1989 Fuji racer (similar to this one http://classicfuji.com/Ace_1989_Page.htm ), seems like an Ace but the coloring seems like it may be something else, although it does have the full complement of components that the Ace had. I spent the winter prepping it for riding, I tore it down to ball bearings and then put it back together again. I finally was able to get an extra tube for it a toolkit and a cycle computer for it and cannot wait to start logging miles on it. Today I am setting a goal of doing my first ever century next year in early May, it seems they have a Monument to Monument trip, a 94+ mile ride from the Washington monument in Baltimore to the Washington monument in DC and then back. I would love to ride that this year but there is no way I am ready for that. 20 years ago when I was commuting for miscellaneous reasons I could have easily ridden it, heck I was logging almost a thousand miles a month or so.

Well, guess I better get back to work now, enough mapping and looking for rides to take, I think I got the bug bad.

Will post updates as time goes on with trips etc or even if I just decided to throw my bike in the landfill.
