Addiction 2021.2

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Biopharma. She sells used cars. At least this week. Not that there's anything wrong with selling cars, but it doesn't give you insight into the new drug approval process or clinical trial design and execution.

If she said, "Pharma doesn't understand inflammatory arthritis," she's 100% correct. That's my insight into drug approval and clinical trial design.

I've thought that maybe I'll just go old school and print out the cue sheets.

It's been several years since I've used a cue sheet. Not because I have a device that obsoleted them (I'm low tech), but rather because it's been ages since I rode in a new area that required one. Sad.

That's why I got the book. After COVID, my routes around me have wheel ruts. Im looking for something different.

When I was a cyclist, (1989-2020) I didn't need cue sheets either, owing to my remarkable memory.
