Ever since Joanne and her husband Lee Thrall joined the club, I have heard comments about how she looks like my wife. The Saturday party was the first time I saw them together. Like me, Joanne and Lee also ride Rivendells!

The second "alpha version [ definition here ]" of the October newsletter is posted here. [PDF File Link] It has less missing content and the calendar is up to date but the table of contents is not. These early versions are posted here for editing of what is here and so you know what the look and feel of the newsletter will be. More will be posted as it becomes available. As always I reserve the right to make substantial changes to the layout and design before final release.

It appears STBikes, a San Jose, California bike shop, wants my vote bad enough that they may be willing to bribe me for it.
This came in my E-mail today (September 6, 2005.)
If I am reading this right, if you vote for them in Metro Magazine's [Link] "Best of Silicon Valley Contest" you will receive a discount. Plus, if I am reading this right, the more times you vote for them, the more times you will get the discount. If they win this "contest" they get "free" publicity in Metro magazine.
Am I reading this right? Is this is really as this appears to me? If so, how can this possibly be ethical?
