Addiction LXXX

Notices
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

Already was there but that doesn't necessarily get updated for executive orders. I don't think the banks take it off when Presidents grant that day off. It is a common thing and I don't remember it happening in the past.

In other news, I am going to be 6 days short on vacation days this year. As previously mentioned, this year I can get paid for them at 80 cents on the dollar. Better than losing them completely as has been the case the past couple of years.

In more other news I just ordered some leg warmers. Never had them before so I got an cheap inexpensive pair for $21.99 on Amazon.

It seems like my fears of you getting Covid in Ohio can be put to rest. Confirm.

So, what you're telling me is your knickers were in a bunch.

Sounds like a genetic issue. Is he Asian?

I am told that shock loading is good, e.g., jumping and running down stairs. I quit doing anything like that after my neck rebuild, but started doing a little last winter, along with lots of squats.

Best part is they do not use infectious materials.
A lot of claims, based on no actual products, until now.

Unless pilots are in a special group that gets it early, you tenderoni's won't be getting stuck until Summer.
