A Slight Detour

Hi, folks.

I hope this post finds you all happy and well. And that you all had a happy holiday season with your families.

All is well here in Virginia. Winter finally hit and it's been cold. The last riding I did was on the day of my Santa ride. Since then, I've either been housebound or traveling on four wheels.

One thing I decided late last year, which I may or may not have hinted of here, is that I just don't have the time or energy to maintain two separate blogs. So I am combining the two into one.

Truth is, as an audience, you're all much more responsive than most of the folks who read my other blog. And I'd really sort of like to kill that one. But Blogger makes me crazy.

The other blog -- -- uses WordPress, which I like SO much more. I find it easier to use, but I'm a bit more techhie. Although it keeps getting easier and easier than ever. I recently upgraded to version 3.5 and so far LOVE it.

That being said, I haven't figured out yet how to get this blog to forward automatically to the WordPress site. So I decided to combine the two manually -- still a work in progress -- and then just tell everyone that the address has changed. I may be able to figure out the forwarding thing eventually. But until then, please either bookmark the new (to you) address or click this link to get to the newly combined blog:

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Speaking on inconvenient... I turned off the comments. I was getting WAY too much spam. Another reason to hate Blogger. If you need to reach me, shoot an e-mail to ToadMama at You'll have to type the address in. If I provide a link, I'll get yet more spam. Sigh...

The good news is, I will have a separate page to catalog stuff I think will primarily be of interest to my moto-blogging buddies. It is at

It's still a work in progress. All feedback is welcome.

Hope to see you soon. If you get lost en route, let me know.

Stay safe!

Merry Christmas

Hi, folks.

I am really sorry for neglecting you all lately. This having two blogs is rough. In 2013, there will be consolidation.

In the meantime, I really just wanted to pop over and wish you all a very Merry Christmas. If you'd like to visit my personal blog to see what's been going on, please feel free.

In all honesty, you all have kept my blog bug alive. I'll do better for you next year, honest. Both reading your blogs and posting here.

I'll be on holiday for a bit, but expect to be back early next year.

Have a safe and happy holiday. Hugs to all!
