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

For my doctor, Datlas, I had yogurt, a banana, and pecans for breakfast.

Normally I'd agree, but if you're going to show blatant disregard for human life, take your own first. Dude (likely) killed two guys for spilling a drink and another for dating the wrong girl.

I guess that I wouldn't be surprised regardless of whether or not they find abnormalities.

In music related info, I played B-flat clarinet for three years in grade school and my music instructor said I had the flattest B-flat clarinet that he had ever heered.

If this was an autocorrect error, that's pretty hilarious.

I had a bowl of black beans. I'll do an encore of dry toast. And then I have to go to the city for the morning. Fortunately I can use public transport

Awesome, [MENTION=142025]LesterOfPuppets[/MENTION].

How can one not like a steam locomotive. I find them to be one of the busiest machines around, with steam popping out here and there, smoke, wheels turning, levers levering. All so cool how it looks so haphazard, yet in concert.

Then there's the noise.

I loved trains as a kid and recently found this book in a storage bin-

https://www.amazon.com/Americas-Colo.../dp/0517304880

Ever since rediscovering my love for those things, I've been watching old documentaries about steam train operations and maintenance while falling asleep. Those things were incredibly labor-intensive but the beautiful simplicity of the concept is remarkable.

Went back to correct it and the dang phone did it again.

Had to type really slow and carefully to get it to work.

Speaking of fat fingers, some sort of switch flipped in my brain while traveling (maybe having to spend most of the trip in a bathing suit) and I haven't had any late night cereal cravings and am not having beers and potato chips with my lunch just for the hell of it any more. Pants are now looser and I'm down a bit over 15 lbs since January. Huzzah.

Amazon Prime Now is rolling out beer and wine sub 1 hr deliveries in our market this week.

That could be dangerous.

This takes an actual effort to complete. I find stuff like that easy to resist.

I do a lot of unnecessary eating, but have never eaten after dinner. I never feel hunger until the next morning.
