You're not going to ride due to the virus?

British, with some NSFW (if that matters at the moment), but sadly very appropriate on this side of the pond, too. The last paragraph is definitely food for thought.

That's very funny in a bitter way. I had to look up a couple of the names, but that's good for me.

I never learn. This morning I got into it with a friend's sister on Facebook ( I guess she's a friend, too) after we discussed politics. I just got out of the dog house for the last indiscretion.
The next gathering is going to be awkward to say the least.

I hope to go riding tomorrow and not think about it.

I live amongst folk who attack nurses in public places, for being spreaders. Who isolate the family down the street for being infected and hiding it. And these are their peers. I am not one of their peers. I'm sure there are some out there who believe in black magic. There are shingles about, advertising curanderos. Best to stay hidden.
And, of course, to top it off, I am under doctors orders to do nothing more strenuous than walking around for the coming six weeks. I might not remember how to ride

I was just randomly poking around Strava in South Knoxville and found a route I've never done. Interesting.

Sounds like a good place to raise a family, or find a witch doctor.

Thanks for that.

Back in my early fb days, I insulted my nephew's wife, on a religious issue. 10 years later we still don't speak, beyond pleasantries.

Good place to find a witch doctor, for sure, Belize and Guatemala are better though.

You're not alone. I would be shelled in a heartbeat too.

I got used to that a long time ago.

I don't do Fake Book for this very reason. My wife is constantly saying she has to bite her tongue, I have not the same self control. Some of my friends and I have the no religion and politics rule, and get along just fine. If one breaks the rule the other reminds them, and it defuses things before the heat starts.

New Showers Pass 2.1 jacket arrived yesterday. Stephen is not impressed.

Datlas does not do FB. I actually had an account very briefly back in the early days when they first allowed people with a non-.edu email to sign up. Logged on maybe 3 times.

BF is plenty social media enough for me.

You picked a good morning to go out and try it. Glad your little guy is feeling better!

seedsbelize 04-18-20 05:05 AM

Slow morning. Must be Saturday

True. Sad!

datlas 04-18-20 05:08 AM

I have a fake club ride but those slackers like to sleep in. It starts at 8:45EDT. I made mrs datlas coffee and breakfast in bed. I think that’s why she puts up with me.

I’m thinking of getting a cheap industrious wheelset with a cool central european sounding name... should I go post in the 41 for advice?

Yes.

Donít forget to make a new post AFTER you buy them to ask if you got a good buy.
