I generally wear hearing aids when riding but I never know when I wear them if the wind noise or cassette noise will be too much. I have a programmed setting that is supposed to cancel wind but it doesn't always. Apropos of the sweat talk, I always wear a skull cap and have noticed that if the wind is too bad, I can tuck the offending hearing aid under the edge of the skull cap and that generally takes care of the noise.

Today, I had no problem at all. It just depends...

I had 5 when I lived alone.

That's different. We had 4 drivers with 5 cars. The thing was it always came down to me to do the maintenance, keep up with inspections and licensing, etc. Parking was an issue as well.

I lived in a guest house on the property of a guy I used to ride dirt bikes with. I had my own driveway which was hardpacked dirt but there was enough room for like 8 cars. There was also a 20x40 pool and a small garage for my motorcycles. Also, 54 trees with oranges, lemons, plums, avocados, and other fruit. Lived there for 9 years.

What's the point in a regular person having a lemon tree? What are you going to do with them?

Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet.
Plus they're a nice looking tree. My b-i-l uses them to make limoncello.

The question has been answered. Can also make lemonade.

Lemonade, duh. Also used for cooking and flavoring. Mrs John uses them in ice tea.

How many lemons do you eat in a week?

Me? I don't eat lemons but I squeeze the juice on fish and I will drink lemonade when she makes it. She gets them from our neighbor. He puts 6 or 8 of them in a bag and hangs it on our fence. Nice guy.

I rarely eat lemons. #ScurvyCandidate

I like lemon pie and lemon bars and lemonade.

I thought work was bad, then it said “hold my beer”.

Felt pretty mediocre all weekend, with a runny nose, mild sore throat, and a headache. In usual times, this would be "just a cold", without much further worry. However, I'm reading of incidents where vaccinated people are testing positive for COVID, and are exhibiting "cold like" symptoms. Today, I got tested. If it comes back positive, I will have ruined my daughter's opportunity to play with her softball team in the National Championship tournament that starts this coming weekend.

Let's be positive and hope for negative.

In my experience runny nose and lots of mucus make COVID19 much less likely.
