    On an SS, you go for a bike ride. On an FG, you ride to your funeral. But these things you won't know until you know.
    There's a lot of truth here. It's about being a kid and riding bikes.

    I have to decide on a new avatar. My teams keep letting me down.

    I had a feeling this would happen.

    If you can count the change in their pockets, you should be able to confirm guyhood pretty easily.

Tarmac 2 has a set of Continental Grand Prix 4000s on it. they rock, but are expensive. I tried the Michelin pro 4 service course last year. They had a slightly higher rolling resistance and wore way faster than the 4000s's.Slightly cheaper than the 4000s, Currently I would put them behind the conni ultra races but I only have 50 miles on them.

    I bagged my race today. It was 40, blowing 20 mph, with rain/sleet. Team mate suggested bagging and going to Waffle House for an omelet as I was in the middle of my "warm up". I was not hard to convince.

    It'll be UConn or Wisconsin, the other two teams I hold ill feelings for . . . which is actually good reason to set 'em up for the kill.

    I agree with you and sbxx. Some days, Waffle House wins, which isn't bad.

    We made some linguine and pesto for dinner. A perfect opportunity for Mrs LAJ's flakes. My wife agreed.

    She took a pinch and crumbled it in her fingers. I tried not to micromanage. She suffered. I suggested she wash her hands.

    Mrs. rjones28 uses gloves for handling the flakes.

    One of my brothers is a chef. He tells his prep cooks to wash their hands after handling the peppers. There's always one who forgets and heads to the restroom. He never forgets again.

    At the pensione, Aunt Angela had a jar of hot peppers in oil at every table. The flakes are like those peppers, but without the oil.
