Addiction LXXIX

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

Some didn’t learn from the first time, so we’re bound to repeat. Hopefully better results, despite present appearances.

Good news: pecan pie made from scratch in the oven. Not as good news: made from scratch by Marie Callender.

Someone is probably going to have a hard time sleeping for a while.

Meanwhile, I'm scolded for using color F0F0F0 instead of F5F5F5 for a background. I'm sure I was told that, and they're awfully similar.

Getting ready. Don't want to throw a headlight on the bike so I'm waiting until sunrise to roll out.
