Good idea. Come up with a good student loan program, and you will make bank.

No payments required until 2026!

See if you can spot the difference. Look very closely.

Once again shopping for spokes on Amazon (and anywhere else I can think to look). But on Amazon, they had some of their spokes measured in inches:foo:.
298mm. Can't be found. I can prolly get 300 locally. But 298 was already a compromise. I guess I can get out the nippers.

Reminds me--it actually is possible to bankrupt a college. A nearby one folded before COVID. This wasn't a couple buildings in an office park--it had a full fledged campus out in the boondocks. At it's closing it had fewer than 500 students. Yet somehow it stayed open for 150 years.

ECU is American (duh). Canadians, other nationalities, welcome to attend, obviously.

I have always been a proponent of going from the gun. Do the unexpected, make them suffer for it anyways. Have an effect, that's what I say!

It seems on the nights following my hardest days, I sleep the fewest hours. Not by conscious choice.

I've often debated within myself where the line is as far as "sound" goes. What constitutes "good". The industry constantly engineers thing to be perfect and that's how we end up with the garbage they produce now. Auto tune, beat adjustment, etc. I like music that sounds like humans made it not computers. (Except for the stuff made with hard drives, I find that really cool. I don't know why.) A missed note, timings a little off. Etc. Put some heart and soul into it.

That hour is not fit for man nor beast, only bad things happen @ that time....like work, yuk!

What area are you coming to? If you are near me you can use one of my bikes.

Our weather has always been fickle but this winter it's positively schizoid. We had 52º on Wednesday, 8" snow yesterday, and it was 2º this morning.
