We had brunch at Mellisa’s in Rocky River: did not go well. The service was slow, and they put ranch dressing on my potatoes – one of the worst tastes I have ever experienced.
Rested during the day, and then we had dinner at White Oaks on a Groupon.
Started at the GYM: back, triceps, obliques, wrists and calves.
Updated blogs, we had dinner at bob evans, and I rode my bike for 60 minutes while I watched the Tribe win.
In the AM, I went to Fitness Edge, where I trained legs, hips, abs, writs, and calves.
I upgraded my desktop to Ubuntu 12.04 – all is well!
We had an appointment with our attorney on making a trust, and then a ballroom lesson (rumba) with Anya at the Avon Ballroom.
In the evening, I studied Russian (Rosetta Stone), and rode my exercycle as I watched the NFL draft thru pick 22.
I attended a conference at the Laborers Hall on protecting Social Security, Medicare, and the ACA!
In the evening, our Lorain County British car club met at BullFrogs in North Ridgeville.
I went back to the gym for the first time since Thursday: chest, biceps, neck, obliques, and calves.
I studied Russian with Rosetta Stone for about an hour.
Sharon’s computer came back from repair after only 1 week (Hooray Best Buy), we shopped at Heinen’s for food, and cooked out.
In the evening, I had an AL Dems meeting, where we discussed fracking in Ohio, and then back home, I watched the tribe win and rode my bike for bike 45 min, 11 miles.
Caught up on blogs, and recovered from the weekend adventures.
We had a dance lesson with Jessica at the Avon Ballroom, and back home, I also rode my bike for 20 minutes.
Last day of our conference in NYC, where I had learned, networked, and enjoyed the bird’s of my feather!
We left the city at 1 PM, stopped for lunch in PA, drove through rain, and arrived – via Jefferson OH – back at Rick’s on W.42 about 11 PM.
Got back home in AL at 1130 PM.
Up at 0630 ( at my roommate’s request), had breakfast with Diana at the Metro Diner. (My roommate is a retired econ and history professor).

and then via the Subway on to the conference.
We took a carry out (out sourced) lunch from the Garden of Eden:

A group of us from Ohio had supper at a sports bar.
I got up very early to get to Rick Nagin’s by 0630, and then we (Gavin -an unemployed truck driver from Indiana, Rick, and I) left. We stopped in Jefferson oh, for breakfast, and to pick up others, including Diana (below).
At the diner ...
In our van, we made the trip with 7 people (1 child),
and – after a long delay at the GW, arrived.
Diana and I stayed (different rooms) at a Hostel called 230 broadway, on 101 st. The rooms were sparse:

Diana and I had dinner at a local Italian place.
After a w/o at the gym, Sharon and I had lunch at the Market in River, and went over to the River Gallery to pick up our new ceramics.

We then headed over to the Metroparks, for a top down cruise through the Valley, and stopped at Weber’s Ice Cream on the way home.
Our dance lesson was waltz, we cooked out, and I prepped for my trip to NYC the next day.
