Couldn’t Think Of An Apropos Title

If a title magically migrates into my psyche, I change it.   Could happen.

I use software that encrypts data using military-grade AES 256-bit encryption. The provider owns 76 servers worldwide. Perusing LocoJoe’s pages I was intrigued by his affinity for classic bikes.  I decided to pull up Craig’s List to see if there was anything around.  First I had to get myself back in America.  What? you may ask.  I was using a server in Belgium and everything was in Flemish.

I had to switch over to a North American server.  Doing that I will not face any difficulties with unblocking streaming services in the USA. The provider boasts 12 servers in the country. I can choose any from the following locations: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Newark, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington, D.C.  Every day when I log in I use a different server.

Now that I was in English language Craig’s List all that was left was to look for bikes in my area.  Lo and behold, I found a great deal offered five miles from my home.  I contacted the seller and we agreed that I could come by his house.

On the way I was practicing my negotiating skills for a better price.  When I pulled up, the bike was in his yard and when I got a look at it, $45 seemed like a good price.  It’s a 1973 Columbia Sport 3.  It needs no work because the seller took care it.  It’s a bit small at “20”, but I should be able to make it fit with some adjustments and do my shopping and beach excursions.  IMG_3623
