Heading to Costco this morning for “senior hour” shopping. Wish me luck. Yesterday I tried to go but the line outside was 75’ long so I passed.

Update, I did get an email reply from comcast, cut/paste is below.

This looks like a slightly customized form letter, but at least it's something. I replied via email that I did not get a license plate or vehicle number, but I noted the time and exact location, so if they have the technology I expect they could contact the driver.

That said, I have low expectations for any further response from them. But at least I got it off my chest in a fairly civilized manner.

Luck wished!

Going to the Commissary today, but I don't qualify as a senior there and there's no density control. Fortunately, it doesn't tend to be crowded. Will wear a mask and maybe a bandana over it for extra security and because I don't want anyone to think the mask was misappropriated.

Hey, it's more than one usually gets from a non-contact road encounter.

datlas Many years ago back in the early 80s, I was hit by the large side mirror of a cable tv van. I was knocked into the ditch. The van stopped about 500' or so down the road but didn't come back to check on me, but instead left after I picked myself up.The company was Continental which was one of the precursors to Comcast/Xfinity.

Luckily, it was winter and I was wearing numerous layers because we didn't have fancy tech clothes back then and I wasn't hurt but just bruised. I filed a police report but the sheriffs dept. suggested that I talk to the CATV office first and if I didn't get satisfaction to let them know.

I went in the next day and the office manager knew exactly who the driver was by the time and location. He told me that the driver had some "notes" in his file and may very well be terminated if the head office deemed it necessary but at the least he would probably get a "vacation" without pay if handled locally. By this time, I could tell that I wasn't damaged in any way so I said that I would let him handle it.

For a long time after, every Continental CATV van passed me as far over as possible so I assume they had an employee cycling talk of some kind. :D

rjones28, Sr. (serious cyclist) was released from the hospital yesterday with a backpack full of meds and several new best friends. He will "meet" them over the next week or so.

Sure am glad that the pending stimulus check hasn't landed quite yet.

There's a Pink Frosting cantilever Trek Crockett like WalksOn2Wheels has sitting on the local CL that's in the very frustrating "smaller than ideal l but I could maybe make it work" size.

Really good deal though. Hopefully someone else capitalizes on it in a safe manner. Even though I'm not really sure if that's possible with an in-person meeting :(

Over the weekend, Onondaga county (home of Syracuse) announced that all golf courses had to close, effective last night at 8pm. Naturally, the courses were packed with golfers.

Well yeah, the courses become unsafe after they're closed. Better get one last round in before it gets too dangerous!

Over on ST, one of the elder statesmen is insisting that he shouldn't have to stop group rides until a study proves it transmits that way, because he doesn't think it will happen outside at speed.

Is he also a golfer?

Iím just of the belief that (meaningful) interstellar transportation is impossible, and that explains it all. Will expand when Iím back at my laptop.

I likely went through a coffee filter, because coffee.
