This is why I avoid taking Mrs. GeneJockey to Costco.

Of course, I have plenty of capacity for the essentials...

I shop a few times per week. Part of it is a lack of planning, the other part is foods that don't have a long shelf life. Whether I take the car or the bike, I rarely have more than could fit in to two saddle bags. Then again, housing location could be a big factor. Having lived in NYC, I have a firm belief that city dwellers should be within walking distance to a grocery store or three.

There's been some movement on the Interstate 11 front!!!

Weekly for the most part. Not unusual for us to drop $2-300/week on groceries, including non-food staples.

I never liked the Pretenders and found their songs irritating (sorry). One night, I think it was early this year, I listened to a 1 hour show on public radio with her. She had assembled an album of songs which were mostly her covering other writer's songs and she had various musicians with her. It was really good and I was surprised and quite pleased. Lots of questions were asked about music, her past, and life in general. She seemed intelligent, thoughtful, and opinionated. Very impressive.

I like their punk styled song. Precious is AWESOME!

I generally hate fake reggae, but Waste Not, Want Not is one of my favorite songs.

How in the world do you keep pedaling through that kind of grinding?

well if you remember the first time I put the wife’s bike on there I couldn’t figure out why it was so hard to pedal…….
thank god I didn’t keep trying but this is exactly what I did.

no beer. or cider if you prefer. nor chocolate. still missing some of the essentials.

I do most of my grocery shopping by foot. sometimes I go by bike when I have a lot to carry. of course it is just me and the cat. I do go several times per week though.

Caledonia 5, apparently.

Looks like the blue carbon colourway.

Good thing it's not the bassboat option (Oasis). It would suck to wreck that paint.

Just put on a new hanger. I'm sure it'll be fine. :innocent:

All other items are secondary.

Too late to even be the second-string MOTD.

Gotta be here bright and early if you want to hang with the East Coasters.

You're just envious of big highway news. Remember when Highway 99 was being planned? Kinda similar feeling.

Map of the day. Note the now disappeared Tulare Lake, once the largest lake west of the Mississippi river.

Nope.

I do remember when I-640 was being built. My parents got some rocks there which they used for landscaping.
