Addiction 2021.1

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

Oof! Over 40 lbs I think.

Full disclosure: If it still works well and sounds sweet I may not want to let it go.
That's one of the good ones!

I haven't tried that yet. That kind of storage sure is cheap nowadays.
When I got the Dave Mason album, I thought that was the coolest thing:

I had a 160gb classic that I lost a few years ago, I'm still a little sad about that There's a lot of them available on eBay but it's just something that I don't really need to spend any money on, especially since so much music is available on streaming services. The only thing I really miss about it is being able to scroll through my library when I don't know what to listen to.
The data port in my Avalanche quit working. So I bought a blue tooth reciever that plugs into the 3.5 mm jack and got Amazon music. Couple days ago I realized the music I've been listening to in the truck on my comute is coming from the data port. Evidently it has healed itself and I left the memory stick plugged in.

Which reminds me of a 12" single I have that only has one song on side A, and side B is non-program grooves all the way through, they're spaced really wide, like 3/16", so the play time is only 90 seconds or so.

I had thousands of songs, mp3 files stored on my lap top. The one that the hard drive crashed. Yeah, that one. I just stream music now. It's easier. It's not the highest quality but meh. The worst part is how Dark side of the moon is chopped up in Amazon music. So frustrating! I had to delete most of it because it didn't flow on random play.

I have the same, primarily in the left. Along with a measurable loss of earing on that side. Can directly attribute it to shooting.

I have no idea when mine started, but it's been years. But I only notice it if I think about it. You know, like when somebody on the Internet mentions Tinnitus. So, thanks for nothing!

I know what it is and what to do about it (which is nothing) but for completeness I saw an academic audiologist and got checked. This confirmed that it's all mind over matter. If you don't mind, it does not matter. Sigh.

Impatiently awaiting an email from my LBS telling me to come pick up the Cannondale..........

I watched a video last night, another vintage bike restoration, this time of a Peugeot from the early 90s, with RX100 like mine. But this stuff was white, instead of bright silver, which apparently was also an option. Now I'm trying to resist looking for bikes with that groupset. I hope once I get the C'dale back and build it up and have to figure out where the hell to put it, it may cure me of the desire.
