  • Back to the wig of the original intention, the emergence of the earliest wig is to make up for the lack of hair. Now, we still need the help of a wig to get our hair cut. First there is no doubt that is the amount of hair, bald or is off the phenomenon of by with a wig to cover, in addition, a small amount of fat people can through wig film to increase the amount of hair, help in better shape; secondly, is the hair length. The wig we wouldn’t have to helplessly what until the day long hair, whether it is long hair, braids or is the sending and receiving can instantly round you dream!
    When I see others all kinds of hair, his heart inevitably just around the corner, but has been reluctant to start to change the shape, because if it doesn’t fit or don’t like, not finished it! At this time the emergence of the wig is no doubt the best way to solve the heart itch. Want to cut a pure Liu Haiban? A wig can only take 5 minutes to let you from the successful transformation of mature young girls; want to try BOBO head shape? No problem, there is no need to cut off the BOBO wig to his beloved long hair, so beautiful no risk.

  • Well, I been here for a long time.
    The NIRRA (a north Chicago burbs Ragbrai meeting) cant seem to get off the ground. We used to get 4 or 5 folks, but now mostly no one. It’s puzzling to me as there must be at least 1 to 2 thousand folks go on Ragbrai from Chicago. I must be doing something wrong.
    I would love to hear any advice on how to get more riders or curious riders to be. Any advice along that line would be appreciated. You can post here or email me at “kolimat@yahoo.com”. Also, if there are any other gatherings in the Chicago area, I’d love to hear about them.
    Anyhow, the October meeting of NIRRA will be held on Wed, Oct 12 at 6:00pm at tavern on 60 in Mundelein. Much discussion on the 2017 route and the Announcement party in Jan. See you there!

  • Papa T,

    Have you tried to organize training rides in the spring and early summer? Maybe initially most would rather ride their bike than go to a restaurant and hang out. Just a thought.

  • Great idea Let. My first thought is a get together in Waconda after the St. Paddy’s run (always on a Sunday in March) by Wheeling Wheelmen. In April I could organize a Poker run in Mundelein or Vernon Hills.
    then we could organize a trip Or trips to the Bacoon ride and or the Pigtail ride (both in Iowa. In May or June.
    email (kolimat@yahoo.com) or text 847 707 7897 an we could communicate further. I live in Vernon Hills, you????

  • Hi. I live in Rolling Meadows. Rode the 2014 & 2015 versions of RAGBRAI. Took a year off to ride Georgia’s version last summer, BRAG, but will do RAGBRAI again this summer with 2 others. Always looking for people to ride with, tell stories, drink some beer…
    I’ll be at the St. Patty’s Day ride (if it’s warmer than 30 degrees) if you want to say hi.
    -Dan

  • OK, Papa T! I’ll try my best to be there. Will try to drag others as well, and let you know if I can’t come.
    I know what you mean about the anticipation. Once you decide you’re going, it’s hard to stop thinking about it! 🙂
