I rode. It was great. As I was cresting a climb some riders were going the other way. The last one says "What's up John"? I have no idea who he was. He had a mask on but I didn't recognize the Pinarrelo either.

Whyfi, was it you that bought the cycling hoodie thing a couple months back? if so what was it?

I was looking at the pearl izumi versa hoodie, made me think of it.

Anyway,
not, I note, a rural road.

If you spend much time on social media it doesn't come as a big surprise that people are confused about such things.

The laser thing in that video you posted is interesting, though the guy who made it needs to be more entertaining to go viral.

Does that Strava beacon thing broadcast where you're riding? Maybe you have stalkers?

She informed me that it's going to be donated to a local food bank. #disappointed

I don't need more money. A donation to a local food bank is at the top of my list also.

I have no electronics on my bikes. I don't own a cell phone. I've never posted on Strava.

My dad has a smart phone. Texting is his preferred method of communication.

I agree. Definitely had potential.

We won't get a check, but our daughter will. She lives hand to mouth on a doctoral training grant in Ireland, but only because we are stingy with her for her own good. I think she should donate at least a portion of that check, but my wife is against raising the subject. She's usually correct about such things.

I don't think it's in effect yet. Your last stroll in freedom.

Since we're talking about the ignorant masses I confess I still don't know how long a virus can survive in the wild. Like on a door handle or box or faucet.

It is called a stimulus check. Itís designed to keep the economy going. If she doesnít need it to survive, the idea is that the money goes back into the economy.

Uh oh - MoAlpha is going to have to bin his new wheels with these featherweights hitting the market - https://bikerumor.com/2020/04/15/lig...d-bike-wheels/

I can set up a printer. I got tech overload at the job troubleshooting computers every day. Trying to figure out why the computer on the car won't do what it's supposed to do by using a computer that won't talk to the car. Doing programming and all the myriad of problems with that. They actually had a land line for me to use to call tech support, which I did nearly every day.
The worst thing about cell phones to me is what they do to people. Mrs John even brings hers to a restaurant sometimes, it makes it like eating alone for me.

he’s a youngster. Enjoy these years.

My dad was 77(to the day) when we watched the Red Sox win the World Series together in 2004.

Best birthday party ever.

You're right, dear. :)

Of course, it'll go into the economy in Galway, but they need it too.

When I was a kid, pork and sauerkraut was the traditional New Years Day lunch. Later in life, I used to make it in stoneware crocks in the root cellar.

big john 04-15-20 04:54 PM

My dad was an Angels fan. He took me to a game when they played their home games at Dodger Stadium. I think it was 1963. I remember it well, there was a man with a jet pack who took off from home plate and landed in center field. I was amazed.
