Annnnyuways. Winters back. Flurries this morning and cold again. More zwifting in my future. Apple t.v. got me yesterday. Wouldn't allow me to access Zwift until I accepted thier $5.oo monthly charge to use their garbage T.V. bastards.

I have held the line at phones and now a laptop. Other things are still through other vendors, because I will not get locked into Apple's scheme.

Speaking of (but not email), for the first time I appreciate the TPKS current-year records. They're showing my actual running progress during recovery. It's lucky, such as it is, that the crash layoff spanned the new year. The concept would be even better if they allowed an arbitrary "reset records here" function.

Actually, I donít do the Apple TV service or the Apple Music service. I donít watch all that much tv and I prefer to own my music, not rent listening privileges. Call me old-fashioned. :50:

The drivetrain on my tandem is shot. I ordered cassette and chain from one source and chainrings from another. My day is now scheduled.

I Zwifted today- wind was blowing 20 steady with gusts to 36.

I've never warmed to jigsaws, but that's probably because the one that I have sucks. Would love to add a bandsaw to the works sooner rather than later, though; I'd like to do some template work, and removing the bulk of the material with the bandsaw would help a lot.

I did not know reviews are sponsored. Make sense of course.

No Apple. Period.

Of course, the wife and kids differ.

Pretty sure my Wednesday fun ride is going to be canceled for rain/snow/weather tomorrow, so another Zwift session is likely. Phooey!

Chilly and drizzly morning here meant pure fake ride, no walk or run. Did a brutal slog up Tataka Pass in Taiwan.

9 AM meeting + 6:10 PM sunset = Zwifting for me. I hear people wake up real early to hit the road by dawn and all that, but a morning person I am not.

Windy, sunny and 50 degrees. Was going to just take it easy, my legs felt dead, but the burg crew rides Tuesday mornings. Joined them, and had some really strong pulls. I must be getting stronger, it didnít feel like I rode 100 miles yesterday at all.

Their productivity software (Numbers, Pages, etc...) blows.

Sitting here listening to my vinyl version of The Glow of Love album by Change. Sooo much richer and superior to the digital version, getting up to flip sides is worth the effort. :)
