Addiction LXXX

Notices
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

Sounds like she wants something expensive. How are all the appliances in the new house?

Went to the hobby store to get some faster motors for my little micro FPV quadcopter.

Had the opportunity to buy either high zoot or medium zoot motors.

I went with the medium zoot models and I'm regretting it a bit. Not quite as punchy as I'd really like it to be for maximum performance cat annoyance.

I've got to go back to the shop anyways to pick up some new props since mine are old and keep spinning off the shafts, might as well fix my error

Busted!

I was the TMS expert, but Dr. George had the inspiration.

I've always wanted to play with one but I'm not very good manipulating things remotely like that. Heaven knows what kind of trouble I would get in to.

Syracuse looked good for the first 30 minutes of that game. But youíre never going to win playing a roster full of freshman vs #2. At least we won in basketball.

Last night my friend/bartender texted me this. Itís from 2008. She was going through old photos looking for one of a long time employee who recently turned 70. It will serve as the base for a painted portrait.

Judging from my attire, I was on my bike that night. Fun times.

the guy in the background has a pen with no pocket protector. I bet he regretted that decision the next morning.

You guys need to tie a string around your beer to remind you to drink it?

Must be an east coast thing

Someone needs to charge their phone and change the clock to 24hr time.
