Springsteen – Blinded By The Light

Though it’s different from his other albums, I’ve always liked Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. It hardly sold as many albums as his later works but that’s not necessarily a good judge of quality anyway.

After the latest ridiculous claim by Fox News (Solar only works in Germany because it gets more sunlight than US) I was thinking about the blinding sun of non-Mediterranean Europe. Sort of like this morning.

Sunny Europe

Sunny Europe

Last weekend I slipped out for a quick ride on the bike and yes, it was actually sunny when I left. I was so excited to see the sun that I looked around for my sunglasses so I wouldn’t have to squint. Naturally I was about 10 minutes into my 90 minute ride when the skies turned black and it rained.

I damned near crashed into another cyclist when I was going under a bridge because it was so dark with my sunglasses on and he was dressed in black with a black bike. (I can’t see very well without my prescription glasses.) Ah yes, sunny Europe.
