    An interesting name for a Meat Market, but El Padre Jesus seems to approve.

    I don't go there anymore. The meat is too dry.

    I've heard of Wordsmiths, Goldsmiths, and Blacksmiths, but this is my first encounter with a Sexsmith.
    I have much to learn.

    I suspect that Canada is still figuring out Mexican food. Los Sombreros isn't the kind of joint that I would figure to have "famous Belgian Waffles."

    I didn't get a picture, but on Saturday I saw a Prius towing a trailer. What would you guess they were towing? Why, two recumbant bicycles of course. Although I was not able to visually confirm, there is a 99% chance that one or both occupants of the Prius sported full beards.
    I saw a door that said exit only. So I entered through it and went up to the guy working there and said "I have good news. You have severely underestimated that door over there. By like a hundred percent." Demetri Marti

    We just got back from a pretty sizable trip - My wife had a conference in LA, so I took the kiddies to Sea World & to the beach. Then we spent 3 days in the Ventura area to see friends/relatives. Then we flew LAX to Vancouver and drove to Whistler for a week. Then a couple of days in Vancouver, flight back to LAX, picked up the car at 11:00 on Saturday night and home on Sunday morning.

    17 days total 8 in California, 9 in British Columbia.
    Canada was pricey but fantastic.

    I'm back in God's Jarid's Country now.

    Driving down Harrison blvd in Ogden this morning, we got behind this truck for a couple of miles. It looks like it is in the process of veering to the left lane, but he is, in fact, driving straight ahead. Must have a bent frame, and possible re-aligned his wheels to keep it drivable.

    We were driving home from a weekend camping trip today, and witnessed a head-on collision on Hwy 89 in east Layton happen right in front of us.

    We were the 3rd car in the right lane at a stop light that had just turned green. About 100 yards through the intersection, I saw a white car in oncoming traffic cross the median and hit the car ahead of us to the left. They hit head on, but on each driver's side, so they both spun sideways. The car that was hit pivoted and the rear bumper hit the car directly in front of us. We were only up to about 30 MPH, so I was able to quickly swerve and stop to avoid any further collision.

    The guy in the car that came from oncoming traffic was unhurt other than a sore chest from the airbag. He was in military fatigues, and apparently said he fell asleep. He was able to get himself out of his car through the passenger side.

    The other car had 5 people, all visiting from Texas. There were three teens in the back seat. Two had facial cuts, and the other had a lot of back pain. The mom in the front passenger seat was limping, but otherwise seemed ok. The dad was pinned on the driver seat, and was hysterical. An off-duty fireman and paramedic were at the scene, and tried to get him calmed down and still.

    The fire crew that arrived had to use the Jaws of Life to extricate him. He was in a lot of pain. His brother was on the scene (was in a different car), and thinks he may have broken his hip.

    We filled out a witness statement. It was a surreal experience. As scary and shocking as it was, we realized it could have been much worse.

    It seems there has been an unusual amount of head-on collisions in Utah this summer. Everyone be careful and aware out there.

    Wow. A great reminder. So glad you are all right and this wasn't worse.

    Did the Saints to Sinners bike relay again this year. We had my Yakima rack on my roof, I had three trays for bikes, borrowed a 4th from my buddy. He put his bike on his tray and we took off driving toward our first leg. At about Draper on I-15 we hear a thud and I see a bike sliding at 65 mph on the freeway. It was his bike that had come off the rack.

    It was one of those 15lb carbon fiber rockets and I fully expected it to be in little shards of carbon fiber all over the freeway.

    We pulled off, they ran back to get it, luckily it had slid off to the shoulder and it was about 6am. Nobody had ran it over.

    So, basically the bike survived by some miracle with cosmetic damage and none of it to the frame.

    We had it mounted backwards, we think he didn't lock down the fork properly and it popped off and landed on the shifters (the part with the most damage) bounced and landed on its side sliding on the pedal and brake hood on the left.

    We loaded it back on, got to the next stop, straightened out his shifters and had a mechanic inspect it and found no problems.

    Super lucky the bike survived, nobody hit it and a we didn't cause some major harm on the freeway.

    Moral of the story, jiggle the bikes before you go, make sure you lock the locks on the fork, and if you are driving and liable, check your friend's work.

    Super lucky.

    In shocked and enraged. That's not my car, but obviously some scoundrel has stolen my moniker.

    Two weeks ago I saw my very first "Trump" bumper sticker. In Lehi/Alpine.

    We saw a "Vote for Trump, Piss off a Liberal" on the way to church the other day..."I bet that person is in our ward..." Sure enough.

    There's an old rusty tractor in the front yard of a house right on Highway 6 in Santaquin. It has a full size Hamburgler on it.

    I was driving so I couldn't get a pic. I plan on going back to get one.

    I wasn't driving, but this guy was driving a Porche 919 Evo Hybrid.

    He got around the Nuremburgring in 5:19.55, shattering the record of 6:11.13 that has stood since 1983.

    Even watching the video footage of this is terrifying. I don't know how this man walks, but it must be very uncomfortable.

    They basically built this car to do this.
