Addiction 2022.2

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

Nope. Just likes bats. This was at a bat rescue training seminar. She was looking into whether she wanted to do bat rescue. We thought about it, but she decided against.

It would be nice if the cookie didn't start crumbling so soon.

Agree. Sometimes you can postpone the crumbling, but even the best cared for cookies crumble in the end.

Enjoy every sandwich as the sage Warren Zevon said.

What's more dangerous - the risk of your heart and lungs assploding half-way up the hill or the risk of losing control half-way down the hill?

Side note - our hills are more like speed bumps for some of you guys.
