As of last evening I've taken up red wine as a nightcap.

That’s headachesville for me.

Such a concrete thinker…. :innocent:

So we really try to avoid politics and religion talk on our rides, because even though we share a love for cycling, our P&R is all over the map.

One of the guys has a birthday coming up and plans to do a special ride to celebrate. He does not proselytize, but I am aware that he is LDS (the religion formerly known as Mormon).

Should I :

A. Say “hey, I thought you guys are not allowed to celebrate your birthday!”
B. Offer to buy him a coffee/latte/cappuccino at the cafe after the birthday ride
C. Keep such subversive ideas to myself

I am thinking C is the most mature approach.

Religious observation is fluid. One of my college friends was Jewish (through his father, and yes I know what that means), but he enjoyed what he liked to call swine-roll-ups (sausage wrapped in bacon). I just laughed.

I would engage him in a respectful conversation on Joseph Smith and his revelations. :D

I used to have a partner who was Jewish when it was profitable to be so. He would boast about how his wife kept a Kosher kitchen, and how it was important to him (his dad was a rabbi). But, we would go out for dinner and he'd order shrimp and other shellfish, pork, and other meats that were not prepared per shechitah.

They don't do caffeine?

Specifically, no "hot drinks", by which was meant coffee and tea. By extension, it meant all caffeine, even if in a cold drink (cold-brew, cola, etc) or solid (though chocolate gets an exemption as near as I can tell). And herbal tea is ok as far as I know.

Correct. No alcohol either. Honestly I would rather give up alcohol before coffee.

Being atheist has at least some benefits.

It was a struggle, for sure. But it had to happen if I was going to be around.

Oh Lordy yes. I wouldn't be functional without coffee.

Our state AG has declared that certain IG filters (I assume the ones that put on stupid ears or whatever) are illegal in the state. To save us from creepy big tech facial recognition privacy invasion. I feel so safe and cared for.

LDS (the religion formerly known as Mormon) don't celebrate birthdays?

Power meter installed and ready to rock and roll. Did a short test ride to make sure it paired with my garmin unit. All good to go.

Snapper marinated in white wine, garlic and oregano and stuffed with lemon and fresh bay leaves.

Of course they do. It’s Jehova’s Witnesses that don’t.

That’s the joke. Get it now?

Watching the news and there are dozens of homes burning in Laguna Niguel. Depressing.

his thrifty decision has my blessing. Marigold is still clearly the way to go. I got mine on sale for $50.

I wasn't aware that Jehovah's Witnesses didn't, so I didn't get the joke.

Oh well, one can't know everything.

Some folks just like apples more than others.

Thinking about Come Hither Red for the lips. Question is, do you match the nails to the lips or use a complimentary color?
