Cold front. 33C. With the humidity it feels like 38. We blew a 50% chance of thunderstorms this afternoon.

The sales manager said they are building up 3 bikes and selling 5, regularly, and they've got a 2 week long wait list for repairs.

What this tells me is that the MUP is crowded in town.

Gaggles more of kids riding here on the trails and in the streets. Passed a group of probably 10 with a few adults thrown in while driving home this afternoon. Taking advantage of lighter traffic, although today it was nice out so there was more traffic.

No cake for you.

If seedsbelize is to be believed, I could be the George Washington Carver of Belize.

I'd bring calendars, peanuts, crop rotation planners, drones, super sperm, and robots. They'd erect a statute of me at the farmer's market.

Hmm?

After my ride, I ate lunch, hopped in the car with long-suffering spouse, (she) drove to Nap, and we worked on the boat for 3 hrs. This here small Beefeater and Fever Tree Aromatic is tasting a-mighty good.

Army ants fan out over the area they are traversing and consume every lving thing that can't get away. Scorpions, cockroaches, small rodents, etc.
Slash and burn 101

We got marched on in our sleep by army ants in Belize, not once but twice.

I did not wave. I bet that taught them a lesson!

Lol I do this too. I think my impact has been yuge.

I probably would, if the berries presented themselves in bush form.

However I was referring to volume and greediness. When I encounter raspberries, my strategy is to eat them. All of them.

I bearish on raspberries.

Grocery shopping is exhausting, even more so nowadays.

Hmm....

I really think that I'm going to be lucky to get to 100 miles per week. I'm down to three ride days per week and, with the family home-bound, I feel a little guilty about skipping out for three, four, five hours at a time.

Fired up the lawn tractor for the first time this year. Cut a couple of lawns.

I didn't realize LAJ is a doc. Ph.D.?

Ambitious. I usually only mow one per day.

The other day, for the first time in...oh, at least 8 years, I made myself a martini. 8/10, would recommend.
