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

AI has come so far; one would think it could do away with passwords, The bain of my internet experience. I would accept a chip in order to end this insanity. I'm already magnetic after all. I wonder if the tiny magnetic field would interfere with the chip's operation.

I found though, that since I don't sign in, I can use my laptop and my phone as two different entities. I can have a perfect score on one device or the other

It's hard to imagine being able to invest that much equity in forks. Unless this shop is where everybody goes, nationally, to buy their forks. We had a stringed instrument maker/repairman in Athens,Ohio to whom all the big names came for their repairs. Two names that come to mind are David Bromberg and Hootie, of the blowfish. I'm sure there were many more. Oh, and Cheryl Crow.

I only mention this because he was on tv saying he hates to be called Hootie. His name is Darius Rucker and Hootie and the Blowfish is the name of the band. Sorta like people calling Ian Anderson Jethro Tull.
