    Pushing the 'Cycling Related' Boundaries here

    Cycling Related - I'm about to leave here, so my time is my own for the next 2 weeks, and I went out for 100 kms this morning.

    25 degrees C., low humidity, no wind, little traffic as any kind of a holiday is seized upon by all!. Back in 3 hours and 20 mins, which will do for me. One of those rides where you're into 'just rotate this gear' becomes hypnotic. No wind, no hills, just on on.

    Anyhow, I'm prepping for tomorrows Holiday lunch. 3 Kilos of parboiled spuds, softened and shaken, with olive oil soaking in, for tomorrows high heat browning.

    We've got a Gammon, a Turkey deep fried like N Orleans, my spuds, my mediterannian peppers, leeks, parsnips, I'm doing a Tarte Tatin. There'll be Gravadlax and Plum Pudding.

    Anyone coming?

    Oh, my!

    I'll extend the invite your way, too -

    Ham and pineapple, Turkey and dressing, taters a few different ways, rolls, punkin' pie, cookies, family and friends. Good beer, nice wine, and a Chocolate Stout Ice Cream float for dessert. We have the inlaws and the son's Bride here, too, for dinner tomorrow, and always have a place for a friend...

    Hoping to ride a bit today, before we go to the Christmas Eve Chili Feed (a complex explanation as to the existence of that tradition). Trying to avoid the trainer - as long as I don't put the old tire on the bike, I can avoid the trainer using the excuse of reluctance to ruin a good tire.....(but tis my spare tire that needs ruination)
    2011 BMC SR02; 2010 Fuji Cross Comp; n+1 on hold today, due to college tuition and a wedding. Some day, some where, over the rainbow, I will get that 29er....

    If you set off cycling now, at 20 kph awaiting visas at borders, the lunch shares for you shouldn't be much more than 30 meters deep in landfill. I'll fit a gps in the leftovers.

    However, I'd much rather do it again live!!

    Round to my daughter for tomorrow so no idea what we will be having--Except that the stuffing has been made by me. Ground Pork- Sage from the garden-Onions and the last of the home grown garlic. Along with a few spices from the cupboard and Christmas without my stuffing is not Christmas.

    Knowing my daughter and the "Nouvelle Cuisine" she has got into- we are probably having stuffed pheasant or quail so I hope she has plenty of them. Just made 3lbs of stuffing and that goes a long way.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    Mike, you're a good person. Two years ago was the first Christmas after my wife passed away. Some friends and relatives did not let me be alone during the holidays. I will never forget that and it made me realize that the world is full of loving, caring people. Enjoy that Chinese food

    Cooking a turkey today and roasting potatoes, carrots, onions, and celery with the turkey. I'll also be making stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, and gravy. There will be Pie, pumpkin and blueberry. Going to start cooking the bird around 11:00. It's a good thing I rode 42 miles this morning.

    +1 on the Good On You, Mike. I have been there too many times, what you are doing and Richard's friends did is the best thing anyone can do for someone that is facing a holiday after losing a loved one. Very Well Done, Sir, Very Well Done!

    Monica prepared her stuffing and put the bird in at 0630 this morning, it smells wonderful already. fresh homemade tomato bread, sweet potato souffle and my favorite, oyster dressing/stuffing, the n the bicyclist dream PIE 2 fresh homemade Pecan Pies here today, Rowan and Machka, we will think about y'all when we eat these this afternoon!
