Dutch apple would squeeze in just before regular AP, maybe on a good day even ahead of blueberry. :eek:

That always bothered me as a child. "Have some rhubarb, it's great! Oh, by the way, don't eat the leaves, you'll die." Say, what?!?!

That very well could be it, a subconscious mental block. Fortunately I trust my wife enough that if she coaxes me to try some I'll have a fork full.

What's your stance on pickles?

I'm not a fan of pickles, don't like anything pickled. I do love half-cukes to death.

I was so stressed at the beginning of this month I totally overlooked the thread change. The end of this month looks better. :D

Hopefully you'll be ready for 2021 softball!

Meanwhile, I can't find my baggie of rotor bolts. I checked in the Wheel Parts Drawer and the Brakes Drawer, and nada :(

Guess I need to go get some beer and clean off the workbench :bday:

Would you say that someone stole your baby bike bolts?

You would love bread and butter pickles if they were marinated with Mrs. LAJ's flakes for a few days.

What about pickle ball?? Itís quite popular with the older set.

That's not outside the realm of possibility :)

Put out an APB!!!

isnít it easier on garmin connect where you can separate indoor rides and the rest? If you connect your trainer as a controllable trainer, the activity automatically classified as an indoor ride. Then separating them from the rest becomes easy.

Got home on time for once. I was hoping to ride tonight but naturally itís storming.

Yeah, it's hilarious.

"Well, let's take a look at your power curve and tell you what kind of rider profile you have! Hmmmm... no - that's too high and that stretches out too much... Let's just trim a little here, flatten a little there... et voila! You, my friend, are an all-arounder! Kudos!"

I can see a way of changing the % envelope for individual rides, but I'm not seeing a global setting. Oy.

When I was but a wee lad, I was helping my grandmother cut up rhubarb and she scolded me for throwing away a good part of the stalk with the leaves. I wasn't taking any chances :D

Can the flakes just be popped in to a jar of store bought pickles or do they need to be introduced when pickling?

Side note: do you and the Mrs make any hot sauces? If I have a lot of Thai peppers and I can't think of what to do with them, I was thinkin' that I might see if I could make some sauce, but I've never looked in to the process.

Just put things together for tomorrow’s ride.

Did I tell you guys how much I enjoy the Hirame pump head? After using so many others, it’s such a pleasure to use.

Bah Humbug 07-17-20 05:58 PM

Wow, so my triathlon teammate won that show Labor of Love, and then they broke up before it aired because they were clearly visibly incompatible.

Well and this is why I miss racing; that was the ultimate determinant of what I could do, and what I needed to do. Or even a damn group or charity ride.
