We had 3” hail about 10 miles north of us over the weekend. The area is currently being inundated with roofers, siding companies, and dent removal companies. :)

I just had my BP checked. 140/80. Last week it was 100/60. Is it an afternoon thing? It's never been higher than 120/70, in the morning. Haven't had it checked after noon for many years

BP often can be quite variable. I advise have it checked when you are fully rested. Don't get overly fixated on one reading, I tell patients I like to act like the olympic scorekeeper: look at a bunch of BP numbers, throw out the highest and lowest, and average the rest.

Spent the afternoon on local buses. To the city and then in the city. Way better than driving, tough it can be unpredictable, timing wise. In the waiting room at the dermatologist. Then more buses. AsŪ es la vida.

Same. I would bet our 3rd guess was identical.

Last night, I was working on the townie bike I'm building for my daughter to accompany her to college next month. I realized that I spend an inordinate amount of time picking stuff up off the floor, including multiple episodes on my hands and knees with a flashlight, looking for something tiny that bounced away.

That's great except when you get 120/79 and Aetna sends a monthly "how to lower your BP" thing because it's not under120/under80. On a reading taken at some random time because that's when you could do your checkup.

I saw that and it went right over my head. WTF is he talking about? Maybe it's just another thing I'm out of the loop on, like $400 cassettes going for $700.

Gues that's what I get for living in a dumpster.

For body waxing (well some types) it's ripped off with paper strips.

Goatheads are everywhere this year. I've been spared so far but today my friend and his wife had 5 flats between them. A few miles in she ran through a pile of debris and double flatted. Great ride after that until we were back in town where the workers were weeding and they both ran through a pile of goatheads. This time he double flatted and she only did the front. I picked up a thorn and brushed it off the tire before I stopped, it did not leak.

I suppose I would need new wheels to go tubeless? Maybe I can continue the good luck streak.

Not only does it have Cannondale's "Lefty" one-legged fork, but it also appears to have "Lefty" chain- and seatstays.
