Some of the plants, like the Hydrangea, are confused, because their biological programming is telling them to drop their leaves and go dormant, while the arrival of rain is telling them to spring to life. Biological programming always wins, though.

I watched the 49er game last night. It rained hard through the entire game. Started sprinkling here about 6:30 this morning

Chewing tobacco would be more fitting down here, but I don't partake.

Nothing quite like driving a customer's car and the Big Gulp cup in the center console starts sloshing around, threatening to spill tobacco spittle all over you.

OMG, whoever takes the car in should politely ask "Could you take your spit cup with you please?"

Another painting. Guess who painted it?

I think that would be a good question for you to answer.

I'm not enough of a painting/sculpture person to have a comprehensive list. Have to do it on a case by case basis.

I will say it's hard to top this 2001 collection.

Man, trainer rides != outdoor rides

After futzing around with pairing this and that, I have my trainer set up to receive, re-broadcast and use my the power meter data as the reference. Even so, my performance is dramatically down vs outdoor rides; power/duration efforts that would be easy outside are pretty damn uncomfortable inside. I don't know if it's fatigue or a lack of cooling or if I'm just sucking all of the oxygen out of my small room, but damn - if I were this out of shape on the road, I'd be disheartened.

I blame it on muscle heat build-up. I can't get enough cooling.

Like Led Zeppelin says, you need cooling.

Knocking out the to do list. Did a little email triage also.

Just a warning, if you lube the squeaky hinge, people will be able to sneak up on you.

My specs are almost 2 years old, I guess I'm about due for some eye doctoring also.

Pretty smart of me to get new ones in January 2020 just in time for pandemic.

I was just wondering, "Has DougRNS ironed his clothes for next week?" Good to know!

158 post breakfast weigh-in, after 2019, 2020 being pretty consistently in the 162-165 range. An English muffin was involved, but eaten like a normal person would, with butter and marmalade
