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.

Speaking of hearing loss, the mechanic working next to me today had a tube explode inside the tire they were repairing. It happened about three feet from me. Very loud.

Should not have been tested. The rate of positivity goes down the less people get tested. AIR?

How bad are SRAM chains? I think I've used them in the past with no ill effects and they're the cheapest out there right now.

Sram chains are fine.

We've got a bunch of college-educated people here and yet we have to go through all this rigmarole to figure out how to fix a silly little bike part. It's moronic.

Faultless logic, right there.

When they sever me eventually, likely as not I'll be a stay-at-home non-dad. You will all rue that day.
