Basically anything that covered up or distracted from the alcohol. Ugh. So bad.

Soco and lime baby

Ah - there's one that I'd forgotten!

Face frames going on the carcasses today. Not sure if I'll get them all completed, though - riding prospects today look much better than tomorrow, so I may skip out early and plan on staying in the dungeon for a long day tomorrow.

I had to look that one up. IIRC, girls drank it.

It's a good thing I know you're talking cabinetry, and not something more ghoulish.

Don't pretend that you've never been girl drink drunk.

I took madone which prolly was not the best choice with the wind and all. I didnít get blown around too much but I was descending a hill, tucked in instead of pedaling. At the bottom of the hill there is a small lake to the left so itís wide open. As soon as I reached the open area the wind coming off the lake grabbed my front wheel and blew me laterally like 4 feet. A car had passed me seconds before and for some reason I happened to take the center of the road again, if I had no done that I doubt I would be writing this.

How strong of a wind gust does it take to move a moving cyclist four feet? Where are our wind experts? MoAlpha

Might have found LesterOfPuppets's dream home for a cool $1.2 million.

gusting 28 MPH. Not sure if thatís enough. Everybody that road from on the capital trail yesterday from Richmond to Williamsburg got nothing but KOMs. I suspect that the first people through immediately lost them to the next group and so on.

Would sram rival 12 speed etap be compatible with a force 12 speed cassette?

Vitus energie evo comes in many different tiers. Just running ideas, but if I got the rival etap and it is compatible with the force cassette then I could throw my madone wheels on it if I wanted to take it on the road instead of swapping tires.

I could also go mechanical and use my old cervelo wheel set with road tires. That wheel set is for emergencies only.

@datlas or @indyfabz

coumadin testing question.

I was supposed to get my INR today but due to another in a multitude of Healthcare screw ups, the facility can't do the test today so I have to wait until Monday morning. That will be day 6 plus 12 hours. What's the big deal if it is pushed back?

If youíre talking about Zima, it was definitely popular with the ďladies.Ē

When I was a Pitt Law IC Lite was the popular girl beer. The IC being Iron City. The regular was drinkable (and cheap). The Lite was nasty.

In our case the drinking wasn't the problem. It was the fact that they were drinking in the car.

That and the poor booze choice.

Flat Rock dam and the start of the Manayunk Canal. Close to 30 miles today. I need a massage below the waist. :innocent:

I'm no expert but I don't think that's strong enough to push a cyclist sideways.

I figured it was hidden in the car as a place you wouldn't find it. If she was drinking it there then that's a whole 'nother thing.

Though also would have been bad if she'd been pulled over and it rolled out.

Orange is fastest, but not quite the thing on an Alden design, you know.

40 C
April hardens us for the rest of the Spring and Summer. Come May there will be humidity and lower temps. Come June there will be rain and slightly lower temps and a lot more humidity. Come August there will be tropical storms, if we're lucky, and hurricanes if we're not lucky.Come September we have increased humidity again, and we can't wait for it to be over. Come mid Octobeer, if we're lucky it is over. Early November if we're not lucky.
