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

I don't think that was one of the questions the GCN presenter asked. You may have to wait for an encore.

Is that legit? Semi-legit??
it typically costs money to literally transfer them (ie put them from her account into yours), but she can book you a ticket, no problem.

I never seem to be in the right place at the right time:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/much-600-...172300859.html

Brings back the memory of poor Joey Coyle, the Philly man who, in 1981, found $1.2 million in the street that had fallen out of an armored truck. John Cusack played him in the 1993 film "Money for Nothing." Coyle became wanted after word got around that he was passing out $100 bills to friends and neighbors. He was eventually captured at JFK Airport trying to flee the country with money taped around his ankles. He was tried and found not guilty by reason of temporary insanity. Coyle struggled with drugs most of his adult life. In 1993, shortly before the film was released, he hanged himself from a pipe in the basement of his mom's house.

Sure. We didn't go there though. Just grabbed a bite to eat.
