It sure is.

I have some germaine stories, which I am not going to tell, lest the government reinvestigate the attestations I made before I was commissioned and stop my retired pay. :innocent:

Suffice it to say, one can ride a bicycle.

Forgotten history that some of you need to read.

"Roads were not built for cars": how cyclists, not drivers, first fought to pave US roads

I believe that was determined by the good Dr. Hofmann pretty early on ;)

Like skydiving - why jump out of a perfectly good airplane? So, why ride off a perfectly good road? :rolleyes:

When does cyclo-cross season start?

Usually right around Labor Day. I'm probably gonna skip it this year.

Home inspection went great. Inspector said the crawl space was the best he had ever seen. Inside the house was just some minor things nothing to crazy. The back deck has to be resealed, and the owner is taking care of that this weekend. Offered to help, waiting on a response to see how that goes.

That's great. Crawl spaces in my area sometimes have a mold problem.

Sorry to hear. Hopefully, he will recover, again.

Oh, that's right! That's how he got home, wasn't it?

Excellent! Hope the rest of the process goes as smoothly.

Best crawlspace, though... Kind of like nicest portable restroom.

Thanks everyone! We just got news that he is at least Covid negative and so get to move out of the isolation area. That still leaves "just" the pneumonia in both lungs, but at least now we're not worried he somehow caught it and then passed the Covid on to my elderly grandmother he lives with.

To his residence, at least.

Not sure if any of us really come home after something like that.

That's better news. Hopefully he gets well soon.

Glad he is Covid free. Hope he gets better fast.

WhyFi My buddy tested my basement bathroom tap and as expected, it tested 411 ppm or very hard. The hot tap in the same sink was less than 25 ppm or pretty soft. Obviously, my contractor hooked in to my outside faucet line which doesn't pass through the water softener. No problem, but it explains a lot.

We checked Costco Kirkland water which I'm now using and it tested below 25 ppm, too.

Do the same rules apply to cycle cross as usa cycling as far as gaining experience before you can move up a tier?

Not all the way, at least for a while.

What also occurs to me is that it's good we went home and saw everyone over the holidays. I hadn't wanted to, and wanted to push it to Easter-ish. AG pushed for getting it in a few months earlier, and wow am I glad she did.

FUN FACT: TIL that NH is one of three states that has not had a pediatric car heat death in the last 20 years.

It's good to get to the bottom of the issue, though.

Whereas down here in Texas, the digital highway signs urge us to call 911 if we see a child (or pet) left in a car.
