Addiction LXXVII

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

I use dawn dish soap and a nail brush, looks like new after.
I did buy 2 pairs of gloves from PBK last year with dye that's not color fast. Turns the bars I to a grey white fade.

The AAPL stock turned out to be a fortuitous investment. But then I never doubted. FB hasn't sucked either.

e-Bikes would be more powerful if they ran on A/C power, but the extension cord management issues would present a challenge.

Oh I know. I remember. It's similar to how it gets cold here in the winter, just not as much and not as long.

When I got my hair cut in late June, the girl had just moved from Boston and was saying how hot it was. She was not pleased when I told her the real heat didn't start until July.

I've likely got 6 times that, assuming by that time retiring by 65 is still the standard age.
