Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Literally a phone message that was left for me today:

”Owner didn’t get med from pharmacy on time and dog had a seizure. Owner doesn’t know which med.”

There's a house I ride by that has had a dozen or so corn plants the last several years. They're huge in my opinion, but I rarely go by "real" corn fields for reference. I'm bad at estimating, but these are at least 10-12 feet tall.
