Most of the "farms" I ride by are just hayfields with cows and horses and stuff.

Good ride. Not too hard, not too easy. Not too short, not too long. Just right.

On my ride I did see a group of 4 riders in team kit for a local racing club. They were riding more or less in a pace line, i.e., quite unsafe given COVID19 situation. They may be serous cyclists, but also seriously foolish.

I did not wave. I bet that taught them a lesson!

Peanuts, George Washington Carver, all that middle school stuff.

Do they grow peanuts in Belize?

Our local club just sent an email blast, social media post, list-serv notice. Apparently, folks around here are having trouble with the whole social distancing concept.

Several of my club mates are also doing informal group rides. I already told them that’s effing stupid but I can’t fix stupid. Sad!

The cake baking, while mom slept in, went off without a hitch. Then these two took care of the finishing touches after lunch (excuse the we-haven't-been-out-in-several-weeks messy house).

Kudos. But this finishing touch ruined what looks to be a perfectly good cake. SMH.

My alma mater is having a "virtual 5k" tomorrow. People enter their times on a Google form. They're not even asking for Strava or other proof. Sad.

Should I enter one of my walks for the drawing?

Bah Humbug 04-25-20 01:34 PM

Hmm... my laptop screen just went black for a few seconds. That's not reassuring.

The misunderstanding here is that they live in, and on the edge of the rainforest, and are planting with digging sticks on land that is sometimes difficult to walk, due to the steepness. Under those conditions, slash and burn is the best method out there. Under Low Population Densities.

And do you see any value in a factory reset as an interim thing?

Yes.

I would strongly advise against that; for mine, the way I discovered it wasn't "just" a dead home button was that it wouldn't come back up after an OS upgrade without major contortions. Again though, that was an iPhone, but I'd be wary about taking a risk that it wouldn't come back up.

You don't like raspberries, either? Goodness gracious, man - what's wrong with you?

Just got home from riding 25 miles on the D&L Trail. Kicked my butt, but in my defense the surface was wet and thus quite resistant.

Saw lots of people riding together. Passed as far right as I could. But at least I found a sweet stealth camping spot not too far off the trail. Now if we can just get a nice weekend.

I don't think that'll fly with the wife, but I'll try it out next time. ;)

I've been totally taken by boats and especially sail since I was a little kid. As a consequence of that infatuation I've worked as a boat builder more often than anything else. Now as an old man I'm still in love and read sailing stories and watch sailing videos often. There are videos showing how to tack a square rigger, something I've wondered about. From the number of videos it seems I'm not the only one taken by the romance of the sea. Some of the videos are from old film which can contain some surprises. The video in the link of the schooner Wanderbird, on a passage around Cape Horne, in which the owner sails with his family, shows a totally different attitude to children's safety as we see them climbing the rigging and cavorting out on the bow sprite.

I stopped by my LBS today after work in an attempt to throw some money at a local small business...yeah, they didn't really need my help. I walked in and their comfort and kids bikes in the center of the store are almost wiped out. The sales manager said they are building up 3 bikes and selling 5, regularly, and they've got a 2 week long wait list for repairs.

What this tells me is that the MUP is crowded in town.

Leaderboard shows all 3 podium spots taken by the docs.

Hmm....
