Addiction LXXX

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

Indeed. No paper towels to be found at the local Safeway.

Man, Bianchi's new gravel bike must have been surrounded and beat down by a mob wielding ugly sticks.

Our local Safeway only had Fiora paper towels. I'd never heard of them. Then we were watching an episode of Virgin River and a character had some in their truck.

Speaking of episodes, head's up beltalowda, there are new episodes of The Expanse!!!

Wow. I was going to say that I hadn't yet started the current season, but I see that I'm a season and a half behind.

I want to know why no one told me until today. Wife and I have been at a loss with no more Expanse. Yesterday I happened to see that Season 5 is out with E1-3. I assume E1 came out about 3wk ago and no one told me.

Got to try out the new ice cream maker today. First batch was vanilla, it was nice and light. Second batch was chocolate, extremely rich and thick. I think I might be in trouble.
