I'm left-handed and I will say the Mercer is a right-hander's knife. Moreso than the Henkel.

Yeah, it definitely steers, even for a righty; I could see how it'd be more of an issue for a lefty.

Stephen is in the ER. Looks to me like another urinary blockage. I really need that lottery money now.

Mrs datlas and I are looking at our late October trip options. We had considered LA/Hawaii but she got "sticker shock" from the airfare and other costs. Now we are considering other closer options that we can do in a day's drive. Her latest idea is Richmond, VA. We are looking for a place that will be warmer than PA, have good cycling options, and good food/cultural attractions.

Comments? Other suggestions?

My version of "cautious" is wear a mask in all enclosed public places until... who knows. But I don't mind it, and have less patience for a back-and-forth than a (semi-)permanent routine.

When AG and I flew back to the tundra, though, we did at least take some comfort in the fact that with the number of unmasked faces in the airport, whatever's going around must perforce be relatively mild or everyone would be swamping the ICUs as before.

Longest post-crash run ever at over 4 miles, second run in a row, at almost an 8:30 pace, with hills at elevation. So that's something at least.

Richmond's a good choice.

I suspect it's kinda flat for a hill ***** like me, but one must compromise.

Very flat, especially to the East, which I think is the most interesting direction.

It is flat. I forget - was it you that recently took a trip to the foothills in western VA?

A few months ago we went to Asheville NC, I got to ride up Mt Mitchell which is the tallest peak East of the Mississippi.

The craziness and these other attributes could be correlated. Maybe.

:lol:

I was going to say that going west a wee bit might get you some better hills, but sacrifice some metropolitan niceties that the wife might desire, but then I thought, "wait - didn't he already do that?"

As it happens, my 72 year old sister just got out of the hospital with what appears to have been hyponatremia caused by Celexa. Her pulse and BP went wonky for a couple days after starting a new prescription for chronic anxiety. Now she's on salt pills and instructions to only drink 40 oz/day.

:( So Sorry, I hear you. I have two males with the same problem. Their special food and medicine is ridiculous.

Poor Stephen. Breaks your heart when your animals get sick.
