Age is one of the major risk factors for drowning. This relationship is often associated with a lapse in supervision. Globally, the highest drowning rates are among children 1-4 years, followed by children 5-9 years. In the WHO Western Pacific Region children aged 5-14 years die more frequently from drowning than any other cause.

Child drowning statistics from a number of countries are particularly revealing:
Drowning is one of the top 5 causes of death for people aged 1-14 years for 48 of 85 countries with data meeting inclusion criteria1.
Australia: drowning is the leading cause of unintentional injury death in children aged 1-3 years.
Bangladesh: drowning accounts for 43% of all deaths in children aged 1-4 years.
China: drowning is the leading cause of injury death in children aged 1-14 years.
United States: drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury death in children aged 1-14 years.

73 DIED IN TEXAS IN 2014 AND TO DATE, 4 SO FAR IN 2015... TP   What did we do before we had google??? I can't remember, maybe Encyclopedia Britannica Annual Update Books?

Figured that would help convince you to bring on the ban.   ;D 

Good enough weather for you to ride the hills this weekend?  Gonna try and get a ride in tomorrow, a day off.  Work the next days, so will be day riding the coast, or maybe to Fayeteville for a meal.  tp

Rode to work this morning at 28 degrees. But riding home in the 50's. Absolutely great to see the sun again. I expect to ride some tomorrow but not sure about Sunday. Supposed to get wet again. Fayetteville is a long way for a weekend. Rode up to that area, Mena, Hot Springs, Danville on a 4 day weekend last April. Great roads!

I didn't know there was a Fayetteville TX. That's only 85 miles from my apartment. Good place for a meal?

There's two eateries on the square, and Joes's Place is where the money is well spent.  Tons of different beers on tap. My favorite meal is the Grilled Pork Chops, but everything there is delicious.  They run out of some dishes during the day. Especially the desserts go quickly.  Normally filled with locals and motorcycle riders, who know great food and atmosphere...

If you do, enjoy.  I always do.  Find some back roads to get there, that's half the fun.  Eating, the other.

Tolerance is overrated.

+1.  Seems it works only one way today.  Be tolerant of everyone else, because no one will be tolerant of you..... tp

Flushed the clutch fluid. Great success!

To make a long story short, I dredged up some memories from when I was an auto mechanic. A certain type of vehicle I worked on was a p.i.t.a. to flush the clutch hydraulics on until an old dude schooled me up. He said to have someone put light pressure on the clutch pedal then slowly crack open the bleeder. Then DO NOT depress the clutch pedal more than half way, then close the bleeder. Wait about 15 seconds and do it again. Repeat as many times as necessary. I don't know if it was that process that worked for me today or if I got WAY lucky. Either way, I had no problem flushing the clutch system with just a wrench and a piece of vinyl tubing into a empty can.

Went for a brief ride.  A nice time was had. Just city riding, but no close calls, which was good.  100% chance of rain for the next three days, so no riding to work those days.  A great week to all.

Road in to the local Kaw. Dealer and dropped the Connie off for the rear break recall. Since I had already called last month about it they had the parts. Did the recall while I waited. Sweet!
