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 would think that the most likely problem is that the fan motor is burned out, but I haven't had a chance to do any troubleshooting. I don't know if I want to do any troubleshooting, it's gross and buggy out.

Ran out with a long-handled screw driver to reach through the grate and spin the blades - moving freely. Probably a bad cap, then, but I don't want to unscrew the panel and be a sitting duck for dusk mosquitos.

A friend of mine passed a couple years back and his wife gave away a lot of his bike stuff. Our club had a memorial ride and she was at the park where we went and had a ton of food for everyone. I think there were at least 50 riders, he was a member of the club before I was. I got some of his gels and packaged ride snacks but couldn't use any of his gear.

Had an enjoyable weekend tramping (hiking) and soaking in some natural hot pools. Nice easy walk. Lots of good food. Good company. It even was fairly mild for winter with only a light frost.

Why. The ****. Not? It's July in VA, you moron.

It took me 30 seconds to confirm that there is no ******g fuse and then another 60 seconds for my wife to call the heating/cooling company to find out that, hey - it's now after 5:00 and effectively the 4th, maybe we'll get back to you on Tuesday.

Lazy ******g ****.
did you turn it off and turn it back on?

if the outdoor unit is not spinning - and motor still good (?) - could be a bad capacitor

I don't know squat about HVAC - but have a few friends in the field so I've acquired a few tidbits

Had a little run in with a rail road gate yesterday. We got stopped by the train so the arm was down. We went on the side walk as the train was ending. As I was passing the traffic control the guy behind me said "I'm on your right" so I moved left and got hit by the counter weight for the arm. Backs all scraped up and bruised hips sore. Knocked the wind out of me. I'm sore as crap this morning. Hopefully a hot shower will help. Must avoid in the future. Wish I saw who was passing me I'd have a couple words for him.

memorial ride sounded like great tribute and good time

one of my close bike friends passed away within the past year ; he was a frame builder and had a shop at his house so he had a significant amount of component / parts and tools

some 'young guys' (lol) purchased majority of the frame build tools and related

LBS has been selling off much of his inventory on eBay

The business end of the weed eater flew apart Saturday... Which adds a trip to the city to my already busy schedule.

When's the last time you've seen stars like that? Wow!
They must have more in the southern hemisphere. We didn't get that concentration even in the Belizean rainforest.

Back when I lived in the Bay Area, I was riding in Portola Valley, and a guy in 7 Eleven kit was riding the other way about 20 mph sitting up, no handed. Turned out it was Eric Heiden. Talk about BIG legs!!

Slow morning. Must be a bank holiday. I hope you all are relaxing marvelously. I have already run a few errands, on the town bike, and will soon head to the city on the bus. Ungodly humid this morning.
Aahhhh summertime
