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

Is kimchi good for gut health?
There is growing evidence that fermented foods such as kimchi may improve intestinal health and as a result support the immune system and anti-inflammatory responses. Kimchi can also improve levels of good bacteria in the gut, and may help improve symptoms such as constipation and diarrhoea.

I had happened across the viewing area while on the bike ride today and thought that the kids would get a kick out of it; it's just a mile-long access road that leads to 15-20 parking spaces and a couple picnic tables, but it's close to the some of the action. I was right - the boy, in particular, was bouncing all over the place. In our time there, we saw two planes land and another 8-10 take off, mostly medium-sized passenger jets. I think that we lucked out with the wind direction, too - the runway closest to us had the headwind, so a lot were taxiing over to take off from it.
There is a restaurant right on the runway of an airport here. You can watch the planes and listen to the tower with headphones at the booths. It's WW1 themed and in the waiting area you can hear a squad leader briefing his pilots for the day's mission behind a locked door. Outside it looks like an old French Chateau and there are military vehicles rusting away.

I like it on a lot of stuff, but I'll eat kimchi straight, too. I need to pick up some more soon.

My boy would love that - he's all about WWI and WWII military... stuff.

On the 2015 Marion-Bermuda race, we had terrible weather. The boat flew off a wave and crashed with the owner on the toilet and it broke off at the deck. We had a nice 5 gal. bucket, but I didn’t poop for five days.

I used to make it in quart canning jars in my back-to-the-land days. Quite simple really. If it goes bad, you smell it. Also made it in five gallon crocks.

Are those hub caps? Ours has aluminum mag wheels.
And those tail light lenses are $350 apiece. Here anyway. No aftermarket, and few in junkyards. I used a plastic red lens and some tape

Of course. And I agree. Thanks for the tip

I like driving stick, but I liked it in eastern CT and upstate NY. Here in Austin I appreciate my automatic. If I ever get a toy car in a place without traffic* I'd clearly want a manual, and not a flappy-paddle.

No Hummers since 2010, although there is talk of producing an electric SUV and calling it a Hummer.

Oof. That had to have been rough.

Out of high school, I used to go camping/canoeing for a week each summer with a group of friends. ****ting in a hole in the ground is never fun, but you do what you've gotta do... unless you're my friend John. One year, he went the whole camping trip without taking a dump. Getting to a real bathroom after the trip is always a highlight, but it held special importance for John that year. As the rest of us were enjoying our first hot shower in a week, John was taking care of business. When he was done, he was so impressed that he had to call us all in to see his creation - I swear that thing was the size of a grade-school child's arm.
