Pretty pleased that I broke the 1000th place mark. Ended up 3rd in Erie, and 41st in Pennsylvania. Not too bad! As there are a few months left in the year, I have the potential for raising my ranks for the 'all year' category. bicycling national_bike_challenge Update on phone found on September 29http://ghofulpo.com/james/index.php/201710050742/Update_on_phone_found_on_September_29http://ghofulpo.com/james/index.php/201710050742/Update_on_phone_found_on_September_29Thu, 05 Oct 2017 07:42:00 -0500September 29 - Samsung S3 Prepaid - Near Hammermill.

Hopefully I win a Moto E4 Plus from you. More brick roads in Eriehttp://ghofulpo.com/james/index.php/201709231644/More_brick_roads_in_Eriehttp://ghofulpo.com/james/index.php/201709231644/More_brick_roads_in_ErieSat, 23 Sep 2017 16:44:00 -0500Just when I thought I would find the only brick_road in Erie when bicycling, I found a few more in the Glenwood Park area: Glenside Ave. and Norman Way. I wonder how many more hidden gems I'll find while exploring the city. There are some mountain biking @trails in the little park at the corner of 38th and Eliot Road. A little brick road in Eriehttp://ghofulpo.com/james/index.php/201709210729/A_little_brick_road_in_Eriehttp://ghofulpo.com/james/index.php/201709210729/A_little_brick_road_in_ErieThu, 21 Sep 2017 07:29:00 -0500While bicycling to work, I found a little stretch of brick road on East Park Avenue in Erie PA. Here is the Google street view for the road. The playing with the blog never endshttp://ghofulpo.com/james/index.php/201709182111/The_playing_with_the_blog_never_endshttp://ghofulpo.com/james/index.php/201709182111/The_playing_with_the_blog_never_endsMon, 18 Sep 2017 21:11:00 -0500Playing, yet again with the blog. At some point, I noticed that Google marked this as non-mobile friendly, mostly because you need to pinch and zoom to view it. I added a meta tag to the title that should hopefully fix it, but, really, what is the big deal? I'd assume most people pinch and zoom anyway. Well, hopefully these changes make this rise faster to the first page than it has done so far. Too much blog spam on the internet these days.

I'd be interested in the opinion of anyone who uses the Mouse programming language (originally by Peter Grogono).

Added hashtags to the blog (I don't think I can terminate it with a period at this point). More work to do.
