A Video of the Devil Dog Hill Minus the Devil Dog

E-mails have been pouring in asking to see the “devil dog hill.” One poured in just now.  So I rode the hill with my friend Spence Smith and filmed the ride for you.  Imagine a dog attacking  from the left, imagine hitting a large acorn. Enjoy the ride!  If you missed the post…. about this you can read it here.

Have you experienced moments like this?  I would love to hear about it.

Lessons an Acorn and a Devil Dog Taught me about Avoiding a Crash!

I was doing forty eight miles an hour….. Down hill….. on a bicycle.

My wife Diane says that at that speed I am only one acorn away from death. But I was staring at the road.  Looking for any acorns that might put me over the handlebars.

Maybe that’s why I didn’t see the dog. He came out of a driveway at full speed and headed for my ankles with a vicious growl.  A dog can’t run 48 miles an hour……. So what did I do?  I slowed down.

Seven Secrets to Sleeping like a Baby

Daughter Taryn and Me - 1978

There is a reason I have bigger bags under my eyes than are allowed on Delta Airlines. I have a problem with sleep.  I don’t have a problem sleeping.  I have a problem getting to sleep and staying asleep.

I have tried everything. Someone said drink a warm glass of milk before you go to bed.  I couldn’t find a warm glass of milk and by the time I heated one up, I wasn’t tired any more.

I tried a memory foam mattress. While I lay there reviewing the sins in my life, the mattress memorized the shape of my body.  I didn’t sleep well but now I have my own personal fossil!
