Correct.

Sadly I am not in mountain riding shape.

You just need a triple crankset then.

I've never even heard of tomato pie. Not sure why I'd want one when pizza exists.

Agree on both matters.

Or an e-bike.

My mother, who was deeply religious, used to use that term.

Gotta ask people to share their data. These are folks from the 60+ group.

It's not steep (at least not on the south end), but currently my climbing is kaput. #Aneamia

I see it now if I just click on my name. Didn't know it was there. Thanks.

Interesting. When I first heard about it as a little kid I was hostile to it and wanted to know why it wasn’t just a strawberry pie. My dear grandmother more or less made me eat some and I was like “oh, that’s really good”. Rhubarb, at least to me, sounds more like rutabaga than something that goes in a dessert pie.

But I totoally understand weird tastes; I have such an aversion to cucumber that smelling it turns my stomach.

Is this regular or Dutch apple pie in your scenario?

For me, it's the texture - it's got that celery stringiness. I do like the flavor that it adds, but it's gotta be diced up fairly small and I'd prefer less than a 1:1 with the strawberries.

Oh, didn't understand the question. Yes.

If you're talking about the Form (CTL (Fitness) - ATL (Fatigue)) chart, you will be until you have recorded enough CTL to lower the difference. That takes a while because, according to the conventional model, CTL is averaged, with an exponential decay, over 42 days and ATL over 7. I just started recording in October 2019, but my CTL data weren't any good until mid-November.

Maybe it's the fact that you're not supposed to eat the leaves... :innocent:

That always bothered me as a child. "Have some rhubarb, it's great! Oh, by the way, don't eat the leaves, you'll die." Say, what?!?!

It never got hot today, so I went out. And made it several hundred meters beyond yesterday's endpoint. Who's ever heard of an rd disintegrating out on the road? I found all but one washer, and had to make the call of shame. There might be a Dr. Who type line I am unable to go beyond.

Then you prolly wouldn't like cucumber juice. One of my faves.

I have gone parched while walking downtown because the store had cucumber slices in the water dispenser.

That's one I've never heard of.

What's your stance on pickles?

seedsbelize 07-17-20 01:13 PM

I bought a bench grinder today--the silver lining to the call of shame. I'd been trying to figure out how to carry it on a bike. Even a town bike. Last evening, I came close to tearing up the new finger, by using a wire brush on a drill. And no vise. Better living through fixed machines

MoAlpha 07-17-20 01:19 PM

Not real fond of rhubarb or cucumber. Rhubarb, I will eat in a cobbler, especially adulterated with apples or berries. Cucumber, I will eat sliced thin on a meat sandwich or canapé, in a mediterranean salad, or stuffed in a pita as a garnish with something. We also have a Szechuan cookbook somewhere with a kick-ass recipe for Chinese cucumber and ground pork. Cucumber should always be seeded and the dryer, "English" variety is to be preferred. Pickles? Bring 'em on.
