Thread needs more GFR.

Yes and we can post freely without cat calls from certain furry creatures. I have their first 5 or 6 albums in digital format. After that it was about over for them in terms of quality. I'm all about quality (and a clean colon) as is widely known here.

I did have poke with a bunch of cucumber and seaweed earlier though.

I don't know what most of that is, are you sure you're not a Billy goat inside of LOP's body? Whatever it is if you are under 35 years old you would slather it with ranch dressing. Ranch, the new ketchup!

I was not a big fan when they came out but some of their stuff grew on me. Seems they are a totally different band after 1970-something with all original members gone.

Quality. An often overlooked, but really well done, Beatles song from their “middle period.”

Never was much of a Beatles fan. Instant Karma of course. And Cold Turkey--prolly my fave.

I don't get to ride tomorrow, prolly. So likely today. And soon. Prolly won't wait for the end of the race.

Noticed that you did not mention the prep in your PSA. 😜

The prep was a nothing burger. Way overrated. I found it to be a minor inconvenience and not worthy of stopping an important screening procedure.

This message needs to get out and "talking up" the prep as some massive undertaking isn't helpful. Of course YMMV.

That was Lennon solo material. I'm not a fan of his solo catalog. To each his own.

Back to almost normal after COVID booster + Shingrix on Wednesday. May actually BE normal, but when I get sick, I tend to forget what fully normal feels like! One thing I can say is that "normal" for me these days is better than it was before I started riding so much and lost the weight.

Riding tomorrow!

Most leadership fails to recognize that training others require a different skillset and time commitment in addition to one's skillset and time commitment for doing the job.

Did not miss the emoji at all and that is what made me think you were perpetuating the myth. Whatever counselor. Whatever.

I haven't done that analysis. But, 2019 wasn't a big year for the shop. Bike industry tends to be counter-cyclical, pandemics notwithstanding.

That being said, my sense, based on the full-year 2019 numbers, is that things are slower this year.

That would work awesome on my ritchey.

You need "flight deck" compatible STI levers.
