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

Now I need to find a pumpernickel recipe.
I've got the recipes in my IPad, I'll send them to you when we get to Tahoe and I get on wifi. I honestly don't remember the details, but definitely the white version is airiest and my favorite.

I do have a recipe for whole wheat sandwich bread that makes a really good, non dense loaf. But it's a lot of work, not sure it's worth it. Unlike the recipe you're making right now- that's a huge bang for the buck IMO. Inexpensive to make, takes more time than effort, and really excellent compared to what you'd buy in a store.

You have to post back and tell us how it turned out.

Will do. I did the prep last night with my 4yr old, and I think the wife is not going to wait until I get home to bake it.

Rant on. Sitting in Hellanta. Yesterday, it was sitting in Nastyville. What is it with these two cities?

Peregrine falcons are known for preying on other birds. I imagine they wouldn't turn down a rodent though.

I used the chainsaw, this morning, to cut up some old building sticks. I once thought I might build a stone oven and use that for fuel. I hauled it out to the roadside and put a free sign on it. It was gone, to the last stick, within the hour. During that process I remember hearing myself telling Mrs. Seeds that I'd rather be doing that than bicycling.

Yep, red-tails and peregrines do a great job keeping all the nuisance critters in check. They're not real fond of each other, though.

No, I was referring to the bad memory club. I'm definitely not a fan of most anything pickled. I don't even like pickles, I much prefer half-cukes.

That would be a rare occurrence indeed, much like it would be rare to see an eagle grab a 4-legged, furry critter.

I HAVE seen red-tails prey on small birds, but not birds in flight, they're not agile enough for that.

I'm really happy that I've found a reliable place to spot this guy just 60 miles from home. Sooner or later I'll get an excellent pic.

Not a gram of useless on that anywhere. Kudos, @BillyD.
