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

I've been making hummus lately, just to have around. Complete protein and all. No fixed recipe. Second to last batch was so bitter I couldn't eat it. So I put a small amount back into the food processor and added a few kalamata olives and their juice. A star was born! Now they go into every batch.

I rode this morning with a Ultrasport ll on the back wheel, instead of the gp4ksll. The difference was noticeable out there on the chip seal

Little bit less stressed. Did the final walk through and the seller did an amazing job, he went above and beyond fixing things that we didn’t even ask him to fix. I think I got my grant issue figured out, I hope. As long as I get a good nights sleep tonight I think I’ll saddle up tomorrow.


Picking wall paint is difficult. We’re painting the whole interior a light grey and we have about 21 different greys to choose from. We settle on one and then when we look at them later we don’t like that shade anymore and pick a different one.


I found the glass replacement on amazon for 20 bucks. Suppose to arrive on the 1st and as soon as I slap it on and get it inspected I will have a car again.

Grey. Don't know what specific shade. Floors to be stained walnut brown-ish then polyurethane finish.

What is it about women and remodeling? Regrettably when I'm strapped in at the witch doctor druggie room they show these HGTV shows. Most of the females shown act like they've just won $10 million dollars when they see their new sink.
