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

Hopefully, you were not on the receiving end of that procedure.

Pardon me for stating the obvious, but the Pirates have the best young rotation in baseball.
90 wins looks possible. Oh, another obvious observation; the awesome shovel is still awesome.

Tomorrow I am supposed to take Puppy Love up north to do a few Earthdog tests. However the Grapevine is closed due to snow and ice.

The Grapevine is the road that heads out of town to go up north.

Not sure it will be open by morning.

the bad weather has you down in the dumps too? I am sick of the rain and lack of sun. The good news is there is sun in the forecast. So there's that.
Daylight saving time starts in about 10 days so we have that to look forward to as well.
