Another Wet Saturday; I'm out

The forecast is bad enough that I have made other plans and won't be posting a ride. If it improves and you want to post a ride, please be my guest.

Did you know that 2019 ended being Nashville's third wettest in the 150 years or so on record? These first two weeks make me think 2020 wants to contend.

Sunday will be nice though. I hope you can get out and have a good ride! Go Titans!!!

Problems with FOGBEE Blog

We have read and heard of numerous problems with people trying to post and comment on the FOGBEE blog.  Unfortunately, we aren't alone.  A search of the internet lists many people having similar issues, depending on their browser and device.  

Our first set of tests were with Google Chrome on an Android phone using the mobile version of the blog.  No Blogger setting available to us worked and blogger even crashed on a few login attempts.

Posting to Blog on my phone

Can anyone help me figure out how to post to the Fogbee blog on my cell phone since they shut down Google+? (I'm guessing that's the problem) I used to be able to post from my phone but now all I get for a sign-in option (at the bottom of the comment page) is "Google Account" but it won't give me the option to sign in. Currently, any posting or replies to post has to be done on my computer.

Thanks for any help I can get.

PS - My gmail account is active.

Email Newsletter

We're getting all kinds of weird renditions of the FOGBEE newsletter (sent out last night) depending on which email client one is using.  Just click on the "View in Browser" and, if you are using an updated version of Firefox or Chrome, all looks perfect.  I suspect updated versions of Safari do equally well.

FOGBEE History Ride

Several years ago, the club did several historical rides into Middle Tennessee's rich pioneer history.  The Bell Witch Ride was one of them.  Here is the FOGBEE article for December's issue of the Indian Lake Peninsula Living magazine https://bit.ly/MeroDistrict .
Merry Christmas.

Boone Shine Family Christmas lights

One of my many hobbies besides bike riding and beer drinkin' is Christmas lights.  This year is the first time I've done them to music.  So if y'all are out and about in the Gallatin area looking for Christmas lights stop by and check out the show.  I'm at 1079 McLaughlin Ct in Kennesaw farms.  Show runs from 5 to 10 pm daily on channel 105.5 (it's on the sign too)!

Many of us shop on Amazon, and if you haven't done this, Please consider setting up Sumner Spay Neuter Alliance as your charity on Amazon. To do this, you must sign into Amazon at https://smile.amazon.com Then choose Sumner Spay Neuter Alliance as your charity. This costs you NOTHING as they only benefit when you buy something, and what you buy costs no more.

Natchez Trace Parkway

The Natchez Trace Parkway is a 444 mile long designated bike route through the states of Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee. It is a beautiful road that is shared by motor vehicles, cyclists, hikers, and many other users who enjoy it's quiet, natural experience through history and as such it is one of our most popular bike routes. However, the National Park Service is proposing to add rumble strips to certain sections of the Natchez Trace Parkway to make it "safer" for distracted drivers, but at the same time make it more challenging and potentially dangerous for cyclists and other non motorized travelers.

I oppose this proposed project and encourage my Fogbee friends to make their voices heard as the NPS is currently soliciting comments on this subject until Friday December 20, 2019. I know a little about the planning process so don’t just send in a comment saying you are against this proposal. You have to be specific as to why you are opposed to this project. Hit the below link and make a difference by making your opinion known.
