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

There's your problem - never, ever open your garage door. I haven't opened mine in years.

Time to man up and reclaim your space. SMH





















Back in a minute. My wife is telling me to get busy with the laundry.

I'm guessing that, to the extent it's true, that housing in parts of CA is so expense that people need the garage space to store their junk.

Sadly, they show HGTV on the TV in the infusion room. This morning I got to see 2+ hours of a flipping show filmed in SoCal. Those prices are cray cray.

My wife put a camera in the garage facing outside with my bikes in clear view. I was so paranoid about leaving the garage door open almost everytime we left the house I would turn around and go make sure that the doors were shut.

You need a smart garage door, so that your OCD will only have you looking at your phone incessantly, rather than doubling back home to check.

But can you *close* the door with your phone? You need this, man.... right after a power meter.
