I would not have remembered that. I think they were still the Redskins at that time. Yes, and we called the student center the res.

Who knows. I don't work at the main campus, and do all I can to stay away from there. I don't like many of the people I've met, so it's best I stay in my own little compound.

I have not heard of Doom.
I do know who Stevie Wonder is though

Two separate accidents a few minutes apart on my route this morning, I had to turn back because the police shut the road. Boy Racers driving too fast in a winding canyon. They’ve been zooming past me all week. Three total cars over the side.

The ambulance driving down the hill was not making haste.

Lots of that shenanigans lately

Fun ride on the fixed gear tonight, up until I was about 2 miles from home and my chain broke :notamused:

Of course, the break was two links away from the quick link but I couldn't get it apart. Had to make the call of shame to get picked up :(

Pretty sunset though:

And you escaped without injury? Got lucky there.

I've definitely been lucky. Second time I have dropped a chain on a fixed gear and nothing terrible has happened.

I also run two brakes for that exact reason.

Lordy

I've noticed the vehicles are driving like it's the last lap at Indy due to less cars on the road.

No, I have not.


Suit yourself.

Amazon has a LOT of James Bond movies up.

We're watching them in order of theatrical release. I'd briefly considered going in order of novel publishing date, but, nahhhh.

Mine either, but he's not spending his time here is he? Maybe he's strumming his guitar.

I've just had one fixed chain drop that I can recall. I dropped the chain on my Free Spirit and luckily it jammed weirdly between chainring, chainstay and tire. Rear wheel locked up, no harm done besides bent chain and scratched chainstay.

I've struggled with tires before, but after over an hour with the bead jack AND tying it iff at numerous places, I have given up on seating the first bead. A big part of the problem is the sidewall virtually doesn't exist. I will likely destroy said sidewall before I manage to mount it. Kenda Small Block 8. My new off road tires. I was going for it in order to ride off road tomorrow morning. Not goohhnn happen.

As an alternative, the SyFy channel has released all of the remade Battlestar Galactica streaming online, with minimal commercials (which is saying something, from what I remember of that channel).

I was going to do another daybreak ride today, but mrs datlas wants to do a “2 weeks supply” shopping trip to Wegmans when they open at 7AM. So ride will be later.

Check to see if they have a seniors hour. Many do. My Whole Foods does. 7-8 are for old folks only.

She says they do not. Plus, we are 54 soon to be 55 so not old enough.

We are heading out soon.

They're not carding people who look old.

Just sayin'

Looks like a good place to ride. :eek:

good morning

datlas 04-05-20 06:04 AM

Survived doorbusting at Wegmans. The whole thing seems surreal. I think we have enough essentials to last a couple of weeks.

You're still flying? I saw a tweet yesterday about a flight with one passenger.

My concern was that you would be too young.
