Pro License

License came in the mail USA cycling exchanged my bmx license for a mountain bike license.

I look forward to license time because I get to Photoshop an image for the back…

2008
Neanderthal hockey player theme


2009
devil theme

I don’t think the picture even matters , I’ve never had anyone who was processing my registration look at the back of the license.

sometimes when i'm bragging about how i am pro people think that means that i make a living riding my bike, have a mechanic, coach, someone who massages my legs after the race, that i am constantly sighing autographs and eating meals prepared by my team chief.

they confuse a pro tour de France rider with a pro American mountain biker.

from what i hear the top 5 in the nation make a salary they can live off of and are in magazines regularly fitting the description that you would think belongs to a professional athlete. the rest are just glorified weekend warriors.

i think there should be a sub categories in the pro field to distinguish between the different variety of pro mountain bikers.

best (best in the nation, On national traveling teams, in magazines regularly and make a living riding)

good (competitive, Still have dreams and ambitions of one day being in the best category)

poor (trying their best not to get lapped)

Can you be a Good/Poor pro? Like Upper/Lower class.

mikejoos said...

Yea, that would work...

That would put me in the lower/poor pro category with ambitions of being a solid middle/poor pro.

I wasn’t trying to stress the idea of having category’s as much as I was trying to find a way to avoid the responsibility that goes along with the label pro.

Hi!

[url=http://www.internetmosque.net ] The Lord Complete Audio English Quran in MP3 [/url]


Islam rejects characterizing God in any human form or depicting Him as favouring certain individuals or nations on the basis of wealth, power or race. He created the human beings as equals. They may distinguish themselves and get His favour through virtue and piety only.

The concept that God rested in the seventh day of creation, that God wrestled with one of His soldiers, that God is an envious plotter against mankind, or that God is incarnate in any human being are considered blasphemy from the Islamic point of view.

The unique usage of Allah as a personal name of God is a reflection of Islam's emphasis on the purity of the belief in God which is the essence of the message of all God's messengers. Because of this, Islam considers associating any deity or personality with God as a deadly sin which God will never forgive, despite the fact He may forgive all other sins.

[Note that what is meant above applies ONLY to those people who die in a state wherein they are associating others with God. The repentance of those who yet live is acceptable to God if He wills. - MSA of USC]

The Creator must be of a different nature from the things created because if he is of the same nature as they are, he will be temporal and will therefore need a maker. It follows that nothing is like Him. If the maker is not temporal, then he must be eternal. But if he is eternal, he cannot be caused, and if nothing outside him causes him to continue to exist, which means that he must be self-sufficient. And if the does not depend on anything for the continuance of his own existence, then this existence can have no end. The Creator is therefore eternal and everlasting: "He is the First and the Last."

He is Self-Sufficient or Self-Subsistent or, to use a Quranic term, Al-Qayyum. The Creator does not create only in the sense of bringing things into being, He also preserves them and takes them out of existence and is the ultimate cause of whatever happens to them.

"God is the Creator of everything. He is the guardian over everything. Unto Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth." (39:62, 63)

"No creature is there crawling on the earth, but its provision rests on God. He knows its lodging place and it repository." (11:6)
