Jules Verne's Birthday, Downhill at a Quarry, and a New Store in D'Bayu!

Today is Jules Verne's birthday! Well, he was born on February 8th 1828 which means that if he was alive, he would be 183 years old. Whew. Who is Jules Verne? Probably, his most renowned work would be 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. A good book. Considering that at the time, submarines didn't exist, quite visionary. He is one of 3 people to be dubbed 'The Father of Science Fiction'. The other two authors are H.G. Wells and Hugo Gernsback.

But, why am I writing about this? Well, it's because Google came up with a really neat header for their search engine. They often do this in conjunction with important events & dates. I snipped it & here is the header;

Pretty nifty, no? Hehe.

Anyway, yesterday, my brother & I shot a video at the abandoned quarry near our house. The last time we did was a very short one, and it was only one clip. This time around, we took several videos & pictures & I made a short clip out of it. It's my first video, and I'm rather proud of it. Hehe. I think it's about a minute or so. Hope you enjoy!

Today, I swung by the new bike store in D'Bayu. It's called enDurance Cycles & Sport. Very nice store. I was surprised -- and ecstatic -- when I found out that they carry Polygon bikes! Hehehe! Not too many bikes just yet. They're only into their 2nd week of business. Hopefully one day, I'll be able to get both the front and rear mudguards. That would look so wicked on my bike. Or at least just the front. Hehehe! Tomorrow, I'm going to go get my bike fixed. While shooting the video above, my rear disc brake rotor clipped a rock and now it's kinda bent. Not outrightly noticeable visibly but yeah, bent. It's serious enough that I need to get it looked at pronto.

Sorry if you found this post uninteresting and not of any interest. Hehe.

I guess that's all for now. Au revoir.
