The weather cooled off yesterday and I went for a ride. Enjoyed it so much and decided to do it again today. Winds were from the northeast and fairly substantial, so I decided to do my Martinsville-Waunakee ride in reverse. The skies were cloudy and there was rain to the south of us, but it was a fine ride. During my rides these days I have been re-reading William L. Shirer's Rise and Fall of the Third Reich
. My emphasis in this reading has been to focus on how the Nazi party gained popularity in order to be elected into government. During my ride today, Norway
fell under Nazi occupation.
