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

Well spotted. Maybe the Chinese is spelled correctly.

Speaking of coal mines, my grandfather on my dad's side was born in coal mining country in SW PA but escaped that life for the steel mills of western PA. Got lung cancer anyways. Smoked of course. Died in 1971 at age 67. Not sure what his position was on latex tubes. Prolly thought that they were for sissies.

Does Mucinex help get rid of a cough? Or is it just temporary relief?

It treats the symptoms. Why are you trying to make it complicated?

I viewed it as some sort of postnasal drip. However, I look up the definition of that and it says it can be worse when you lie down? The cough goes away when I lie down.

All relief is temporary.

Well, the bamboo fenders are nice, but I can’t get the new tires to set up tubeless to save my incompetent life. I’ll attempt it again when my thumbs have recovered and I can get some new valve stems. At least I’ll be ready for wet roads this week.

C'mon now, it's not like this is a prison in here. One can mention other threads and state that it's either wonderful or awful or anywhere in between. Just don't criticize a specific individual or post or thread topic, or say anything that would cause an individual to come into this thread and complain. For example, you can't say something like "Oh boy that troll is at it again in xxx thread", because he and everybody else can figure out who you're talking about. Just one example of hundreds. Just don't make the remark personal is the general guideline.

Now I realize some people don't have good judgement and some don't do well toeing a fine line and that it would be best if they just said nothing at all. And if your comment disappears then you'll know the reason why.

And if you really really really MUST say something personal, go post in that particular thread and take your chances over there, not here.

I won't make it personal. It's just tough to know when someone posts "I just bought this bike! Did I get a good buy???" if they are really sincere and worthy of talking to or just a silly old troll. Sad!

That would seem to violate the topic provision. I think I have some troll genes in with the Neanderthal.

Waiting in the terminal for the bus to Merida. I missed the 10:00 bus, because they called out Tuxpehual only. Everybody knows that's the merida bus apparently.

And then the Tuxpehual bus goes straight to Merida without passing through Tixpehual. The confusion arose because I normally take the combi. The line was a mile long this morning.
Mexicans spend their lives waiting in line and think nothing of it. I have yet to come around.
