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

Maybe. It might appeal more to an international audience.

Initial search for power chord: Fail. This could take some time given the chords for both machines are missing.

(Forgot I had so much junk.)

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.
The 1989 Schwinn Circuit came with Shimano Sante, if you're looking for bikes that are "supposed" to have white groupsets

Seems too soon. The infection rate has dropped from its peak a couple months ago but still too high. Sigh.

Yep. Straight from the horse's mouth ass:

“Too many Texans have been sidelined from employment opportunities. Too many small business owners have struggled to pay their bills. This must end,” Abbott said during a press conference in Lubbock. “It is now time to open Texas 100%.”

“Also, I am ending the statewide mask mandate,” he said.

Glad my wife, son and I have had the vaccine. Daughter hasn't so that concerns me.

I have a bad feeling we've already hit the bottom of another trough and we'll be headed back up soon. Hopefully I'm wrong about that.

Maybe if we put our weight in to it, we can get this rollercoaster to peak even higher again, eh?

The only thing which gives me any hope that you’re wrong so rhe onset of warmer weather.

Let's hope so, we had a pretty bad July last year, though.

If this vaccine milepost the president mentioned today is achieved, that should help:

"We're now on track to have enough vaccine supply for every adult in America by the end of May."

This doesn't come as a surprise to any delightful patients who have been seeing witch doctors for the last decade, but this COVID fiasco only further illustrates that big medicine doesn't know what's going on.

Good luck, everyone.

He's trying to distract everyone from all those people freezing to death in the dark with no water.
