Addiction LXXX

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

We continue to get nightly rain. Ten nights/days in a row now, including two tropical storms. 13" total so far. Thankfully it has moved to nights only, because the herbage can take the day to dry out. If I get out there between 3 and 5, I can get a bit of weed eaten and raked up, before the next one rolls in around 5 or 6. One day I will again get on a bike. Seems like it won't be soon.

rain today and looks like until I go to work again.

Keeping a two year old entertained when stuck in the house is hard. I don’t know how my wife does it on a daily basis.

I thought that's what benadryl is for? Or hard liquor for you.

Use that site to determine the best as far as rank goes, then find out if Costco has it, or if MyProtein.com will ship to you

Actually you are wrong. They did not get into the red zone enough today. UGA 44 UT 21.
Pitt also lost. A double whammy for Johnny.

The Labdoor thing is important! Supplements are virtually unregulated and all kinds of worthless and dangerous adulterants and contaminants have turned up in tests. Thanks for turning me onto MyProtein, LAJ. LSS and I consume a lot of that stuff.

Probably because it wore out the cogs and the jockey wheels to match.

For just the pump? It was less than that for my MIL's washing machine.

Still, you can't get a repairman out to the house for less than $100 and then there's the parts and additional labor (if any). If you can pull it out and confirm, it is an easy fix.

Looks like they only sell the wash and drain pumps together as a kit.

I make it a rule not to do electricity or plumbing, and this is both. Now, if it were a mechanical watch, or a bike, or you need a bowstring twisted or a recombinant protein made, I'm your man.

This is very promising for doing a little climbing tomorrow.

Won't overheat, but won't need a gilet vest.
