Addiction 2021.1

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

Second tire glued and mounted, with the thumbs of an olympic thumb wrestler. Tomorrow we ride. It's been awhile since I've pumped a tire to 110 psi

Ugh. I started printing photos at Costco because I didn't want to deal with ink costs and plugged print heads any more.

Did you print out a diagnostic page? And did you run the internal head cleaning in addition to wiping it?

Printers are disposable these days. However, a new print head may fix it up, but it will cost you almost as much as a new printer.

A properly driven vehicle traveling at or near the speed limit does not end up like that.

Diagnostic page is blank where back print should be. Printer head clean utility ran. No change.

I'm not saying you are wrong, but there is too much vegetation and trees from the direction of travel with traffic. There's a pretty good median from the opposite direction.I can't see any point of exit from the roadway.
​​​​​​. If you look to the right of the vehicle you can see disturbed vegetation and a bit of a trail coming down. There are homes above. I can imagine a driveway along side the house..... It looks to me like it came down the side of the hill and nosed into the ground and flipped over. I hope im not right though.

I would try a different black cartridge. There is a chip embedded in the cartridge that holds a date when it was activated. Even if it has ink, it will tell the printer its empty.

Bummer.

Have you thought about printing at Costco?

The bobcat is generally more aggressive than its western cousin, the Canadian lynx.

One of my Minions' had a car end up like that, but his was a case of driving in the rain at about the speed limit and probably hitting a patch where water was draining across the road and started hydroplaning. But, clearly, no water in evidence here.

That's what I thought. Hitting a curb at a fast enough speed and the right angle will cause a flip over. Actually saw that happen once as I was waiting to turn into my subdivision.

Also, SUV = high center of gravity. Easier to flip.

Did you buy a knockoff cartridge? When work got me an HP printer for home I ran out of black ink. My admin ordered me a new cartridge. It was an HP knockoff and would not work. She then ordered me an HP cartridge and it worked fine.

I had called HP customer service. They told me the printer often doesn’t recognize the metal contacts on the knockoffs.

That's annoying and it ends up being an over/under session more than anything.
Same here - can't hold 1 minute power inside like I can outside.

I mostly count calories because I have other fitness goals around muscle mass - once I hit my goal, I won't be as stringent.

Is this a great shot or what? I didn’t take it. It was taken at the Audubon place in Audubon, PA, a bit outside of Philly. His names in Oden. He’s one of several owls that cannot be released. Wonder what that killing machine is thinking at that moment.
