No winter for the last couple of months. And now when we are waiting for spring to show up in its full glory we get snow??

And so it began again. The pre-season has started and the first training game is over and done.

The photo on the other hand is a bit misleading. All sunny and blue skies, but it was really windy and chilly. There was a storm brewing since Friday afternoon. This was taken on the Saturday afternoon, but at the time we left home, it was pooring down hail!!! And about 20 minutes after this photo it was dark, raining and a new hailstorm. The game even got stopped for a few minutes and the girls could shelter from the rain.

Eventually we just had to harden it out in wind and weather. The game ended in a justified 2-2 score. Everybody was happy and tired, so the rest of the day was spent in a sofa…

It’s part of the commuting life. You could turn in your bike to a bike shop and pay for it. But the bikes get abused so much during the dark time of the year by rain, mud, snow and ice.

The problem is that I don’t know all this stuff. But….. that’s where youtube comes in handy. 20 years ago you had to go as an apprentice during the weekends to learn all this. Now it’s all a click away. Some favorites:

And when you make a mistake, you just start all over. The advantage of having 2 bikes, I guess. Always one ready to bike with and one to tinker with….

No blog without a photo of some food. This tested good, but what the others had, tasted even better. I made a note for the future.

Out with Da Boyz. Getting dirty and wet in the local mud. Testing the limits a bit of what one (at this age) can do on a mountainbike. Followed by food and drinks at G-man’s place. Such a nice way to spend a day in good company.

JFokus 2020 is in Stockholm. 3 Days of conferencing and listening to the latest and hottest topics in the Java world. The question is always how much of it can we implement at work?

OK, there is a tiny risk he might just drop off the edge and land on top of Mr P, but we’re boys. Pretending to be 25 and having a laugh out there. That keeps us young!
