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

I'm out of bourbon.

I'm going to chronicle this year as a document for future reference. Not many people can say they lived through a pandemic until now. The last one was 100 years ago when the best you could hope for was to die in your sleep.

It might be interesting to look back on it down the road.

Rams look like the winless team and the Jets look like a contender.

I was just discussing this with the wife. I might attempt it, but weather could very easily crush me.

This reminds me, I was going to send Bah Humbug a Festive 500 patch from last year.

We can only hope.

Not sure what the story is with the distiller, but they appear to be in Minneapolis and have a tap room (is it still called a tap room when it's spirits and not beer?). Hopefully they don't shortcut and bring in neutral grain spirits; that would be a disappointment.

I'm low on Green Spot. I'm hoping to stretch out that bottle with cocktails from the new acquisitions.

I have multiple purchases that are 2 weeks overdue at this point and it so bad now they don't even bother updating the tracking. The new message is ( and I hear it with a Jersey accent) yeah, its gonna be late, waddya gonna do but it?

My son and I were having that very discussion this morning. Even should have been ahead of Ohio. Could argue those things all day long, but there is no appeal. And, TAMU is powerless to invoke marshall law and conduct its own vote do over.

As for the gif, you guys are over thinking it. VV posted ”UPSET ALERT” when the Vols were losing. Pretty funny post actually. At game’s end, I came in and posted the final score. Then I turned around and walked away because there was nothing else to say on that subject.

On a different note, I got my first activity that counts in three weeks. Passed the Brown Squirrel twice. Finished after sunset, but before civil twilight. It was cold, but I HTFU.
