Scaling a new peak of rash overambition, Tim Moore tackles the 9,000 kilometer route of the old Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike. Asking for trouble and getting it, he sets off from the northernmost Norwegian-Russian border at the Arctic winter´s brutal height, bullying his plucky MIFA 900 through the endless and massively subzero desolation of snowbound Finland. Sleeping in bank vaults, imperial palaces and unreconstructed Soviet youth hostels, battling vodka-breathed Russian hostility, Romanian landslides and a diet of dumplings, Moore and his ´so-small bicycle´ are sustained by the kindness of reindeer farmers and Serbian rock gods, plus a shameful addiction to Magic Man energy drink. Haunted throughout by the border detritus of watchtowers and rusted razor wire, Moore reflects on the curdling of the Communist dream and the memories of a Cold War generation reared on the fear of apocalypse - at a time of ratcheting East-West tension. After three months, 20 countries and a 58 degree jaunt up the centigrade scale, man and bike finally wobble up to a Black Sea beach in Bulgaria, older and wiser, but mainly older. 1.

Then her mom says she can´t get her ears pierced, but her dad doesn´t know that. Amber makes a decision. Something has to belong to her, so why shouldn´t it be her ears?

´´Who gives a damn about their reputation? Oh, that would be me! Especially since mine had gone straight to hell in the span of 30 minutes.´´ Maysie Ardin is soaking up the summer before her junior year of college, shopping, hanging by the pool, and shopping some more. But when her black belt in spending lands her in trouble with her parents, she is forced to take a second job at a local bar to dig herself out of a deep financial pit.

This week on Car Talk, Suzy´s drive across Mexico is off to a rocky start. She hasn´t even crossed the border, and her Vanagon is already making a new noise that could foreshadow the Death of a Transmission. Will Tom and Ray counsel her to turn back, or just to go shopping for a good pair of noise-canceling headphones? Elsewhere, Patricia´s Subaru is having troubles starting, and exacerbating the problem is a large buffalo grazing between her and her car; and Katie´s right leg is showing its displeasure with her new Volvo by going numb when she drives it. Also, does Neil´s son´s decision to play the double bass mean Neil´s on a one-way street to Minivan Land, and is Kelly´s boyfriend nuts for insisting on warming up his truck for 10 minutes in 50 degree weather?
