Addiction 2022.1

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

Traditionally, watch photos are taken at 10:10.

Missed it by a minute.

Yes, sir they are. So if you were to take a picture of the book cover that shows the watches at 10:00, and take that picture at 10:10 on October 10, you could be onto something in the NFT market.

This illustrates the old saying, "A man with one watch knows what time it is. The man with two watches is never sure."

BTW, Elgin always used to show their watches at 8:18..

It still works just fine, except it loses time and I have to reset occasionally. Got it set to EDT, obviously.
