Addiction LXXVII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Dr. Steven Gundry can bite me. One has to wonder how low BF will stoop for a dime. They should just bend over and say what they really mean.

The end is near. Go to Costco one last time but don't touch your face or anything else.

Yeah, and some bars with the option to internally wire have ports on either side of the shifter. If I could have routed my shift cables to the outside, it would have made life so much easier.

Man, I can't believe that the NBA season has been indefinitely shut down because of the Coronovirus. Bummer.

And March Madness without fans?! Madness!

Too much confusion right now about details. People are saying the ban may not apply to Americans.

I expect some changes and adjustments to what the original proclamation stated. Stay tuned.

Agree. I changed my profile to not get this spam, but I got the latest one yesterday. Sad!

It pretty clearly doesn’t apply to US citizens and permanent residents.

Another day the bagged greens section was devoid of bagged greens. Another day there were no shallots. How in the world do you run out of shallots? This started pre-virus, BTW.

The initial proclamation stated it was for all travel from Europe. I am sure it will be modified and clarified in the next day or two.

Looks like you missed out on some fun if you were on the continent (thread). No one knows what's going on.
