Addiction LXXVIII

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

Somewhere in a John Hughes movie some teenagers are rolling their eyes.
I’m more concerned about the Cave Creek AZ fire.

My employer is well insured, and no employees will be there tonight.

"These findings show that nitrite synthesis by oral bacteria is hugely important in kick-starting how our bodies react to exercise over the first period of recovery, promoting lower blood pressure and greater muscle oxygenation," said one of the team, nutritionist Craig Cutler.

"In effect, it's like oral bacteria are the 'key' to opening up the blood vessels. If they are removed, nitrite can't be produced and the vessels remain in their current state."

I would not unduly castigate myself over this, No doubt there is a playhouse support group somewhere.

It was pretty good. A number of dead spots, though (e.g., him @ Rice football, five minutes of showing him cut his finger peeling a potato).
