Looks like we're going back on code red, for at least two weeks. There is no recreational riding, or anything else during code red, especially for senior citizens. How is it so difficult to act responsibly? Put the phone down when driving, etc.
My phone doesn't recognize the word 'difficult'.
I wonder if that means our crew won't be allowed to work. Likely.

Absolutely. Take a few out, put about a 1/4 teaspoon of flakes in (Vlasic or Dave's big jar), shake it up, let it sit for a day. It does get warmer as it sit, of course.

Mrs. LAJ makes powder, and it's a sought after Christmas gift. One for soup, with a tiny kick, and on for salsa, with more of a kick. You add the ingredients you want, as far as tomatillo's, onions, tomato, cilantro, etc.. Use her powder to season to taste. The soup was a big hit, becuase it could be used on anything.

She doesn't grow many super-hots anymore, simply because you can only eat so much, and her proficiency in growing stuff far outpaced the ability to consume. She has plenty.... First batch of Shi****o's hit today. Stupid censor. I'll just say it in advance.

Hmmmm... I suppose that I do have a dehydrator (that I've never used) if making a hot sauce doesn't look like it'll pan out.

Not everyone.
When I did that ride I made sure to stop at all the rest stops while other excitable types would pass by some of them in search of glory, or something.
I told a friend on a ride the next day " I ate 8 times yesterday". She gave me a high five.

Strawberry-rhubarb ruins both the strawberry and the rhubarb. It blunts the lively rhubarb flavor and mushes the strawberry texture. I wouldn't say it's bad per se, but it's bland and mildly unsettling, a miserable shadow of what rhubarb is capable of.

Rhubarb doesn't need additional fruits to be a spectacular dessert filling. The top-tier expression of rhubarb dessert is a crisp, though, not a pie.

They're building a block wall between our property and the next one over. It was a forest until recently. Now it is a wasteland awaiting construction.

Iím looking forward to it. They just started this season this past week, asked me if I wanted to play. I would have declined even without the medical issues, I mean weíre talking about a league of high-risk 60, 70 and 80 year olds. Why take the risk, wait until next year. I wish them well.

I guess that makes me an outlier, although I do like raspberries. ;)

I just noticed that my long-awaited cycling order from Taiwan is marked to ship to my previous address. Facepalm.

phrantic09 07-18-20 07:35 AM

Looking at another house today. Itís booked for showings all day so I assume itís going to be tough to get, but fingers crossed!

Protip: if you move make sure you change your address on eBay.

Thats a bummer man. Any chance you can contact the shipping company and get it changed?

I don't know. According to the tracker it's USPS and arrived in Knoxville yesterday.

You've moved since ordering? That's a long wait.
