June 27 Friday - Used Bike Rack on a Public Bus.

Nice day . The start of a \'very long Weekend . Canada Day - July 1 .
 I went - rode my bike to the Cataraqui Town Center do have a look in the stores.  After shopping, I  noticed  I had  a flat tire in my rear wheel. Problem - How to get my bike home?. . The Kingston City buses a have  bike racks. I decided to take  my bike  downtown to have the bike shop fix my flat.
 I had never used a bus bike rack
This was my first attempt.
The bus driver was nice and friendly and helpful . She gave me verbal instructions to load the bike on the bus.   I was  surprised at how  easy it is to load a bike onto the front  bus rack .    I got down town and I had  the  flat fixed at Frontenac Cycle.
A good experience, and i learned a new skill that i will use again.  

June 26

I  did not have a good day  on Thursday. Its early Friday morning  here , this is yesterdays post. 

 I went to see a doctor. And he has to be ranked as the biggest jerk  I have ever met.  He really upset me. needless to say I am not going back.

I did not run, but I did ride my bike 15K.

Juneathon Day 19

Watched the England - Uruguay Soccer game.  Very Disappointed in the play of the English team. 
Perhaps , better coaching is needed. And players who can score goals.

June 18 2014

One of those days. not great in terms of goals, but i did get some stuff done. 
Took my cat , Tuffie to the veterinarian  for her annual check up and shots. 
 The FIFA World Cup is taking up a lot of programming time on Canadian TV.
I am English by birth. I am hoping they (the UK) wins tomorrow against Uruguay. .. .I am a little skeptical. the press is interested in one player - Rooney . My (unprofessional ) feelings think he should be benched. He is lacking as a " team player".  There must be better team players in the UK .
Keeping my fingers crossed. My instincts tell me they will have to play well to win ... 

My training did not go as well. I  cycled 20K and ran 3K.
