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

Someone here also purchased an Intense mountain bike not too long ago, but I can't remember who it was.

Any ideas?

Might be a new day for those things, but my sister replaced 3 of those 'water line to rhe fridge' fridges, and then gave up. I wish you better fortune.

Or beyond. FedEx knows how to delay shipment. Though I've found, being in long term rest mode, my usual impatience has fallen away.

I got out of spatula mode today. Only the one finger is now wrapped up. I was so excited, until I found that those recently freed fingers don't move much, without a bit of pain. I can at least hold my phone though.

I'm having coffee and pretzels, which I've never had together. It's pretty amazing.

Maybe velo vol needs to inject those. Or maybe just eat them with a nice vinaigrette.

I was just reading about green stuff on ice yesterday - an article on algae in Antarctica.

Our old one was an LG but worked for the few years we had it. The one in the current rental house is crap, but it's an older Frigidaire and probably not maintained like at all. Even so, all that's happened is because the freezer side doesn't seal well, the ice chunks melted and refroze in the dispenser but we still get ice off the top.

Seems like a pretty simple device...

Yup. If it's raining tomorrow morning I think I will don my rain jacket and take the rain bike on the trail (CVT to SRT) all the way in to your neck of the woods. I would hope the crappy weather means the trails will be deserted. If the weather changes I will ride locally.

I get them on the roof of my shed. Sometimes they just fall off by themselves and leave you exclaiming wtf.

Time to mow my 4 lawns - front, back, and 2 sides. This is the third time this week.

There are a lot of awful couches out there. In Austin I suspect many are sold to be decoration in a fancy house, but I doubt that's the case in Knoxville.
