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

There is no indication either way, but it would have to be a critically placed or large mutation to make it resistant. No one is even sure it's more contagious because the apparent rapid spread in the UK might still reflect lots of people getting sick simultaneously in the first few waves from a single "super spreader" event. The virus has mutated many times since the pandemic started.

I DId some reading since this morning. You are correct. The CBC news cast did say it was believed to be more easily spread than the previous mutation. But, further reading seams to dispute that. (I know my initial thread said CBS, spell check correction)
It was presented pretty harshly this morning. I believe I may have panicked, a little bit.
Mom and Dad are both out of the woods.. you can tell by the ration of right wing rhetoric I had to sit through yesterday. Not to get political. I am under a bit of strain as of late. Not to go into things to deep. Hearing that this morning almost sent me running for the hills.

Bingo.

I try to stick with my core group. I'll never stop until I physically or monetarily can't, but in times like these, they do get extra.

Me too! My boss is a neuro-virologist and knows everyone and everything. I'll ask him what he's heard when I talk to him tomorrow.

One newscaster this morning said, "The new strain may be 70 times more infectious", and I thought, "Hold on", but then the scientist/public health person she interviewed said "70 PERCENT more infectious", which is substantially less worrying.

Like anyone, including me, would be able to make real world sense out of either of those numbers.

You getteth and then you getteth taken away. Sucks.

According to ESPN college football insider Chris Low, the Tennessee Volunteers will not be playing in the Liberty Bowl against West Virginia.

Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, along with multiple staffers.

There were some recovery legs at a race one time. They were cool, and they did help the old legs. Unfortunately, getting into those thing in front of God and everyone, wasn't my cup of tea. I don't think it's worth a grand+ to get into those things at home, either. I'll stick to beets.

They remind me too much of gravely ill or injured (yes, I’m that old) people. ...but it is the kind of **** I’d try...maybe if they weren’t so expensive...

Just curious. I just found a new Shimano 17T thread-on free-cog. I'm trying to decide what to do with it. I can give it to my local co-op, throw it away, or pass it on.

The model is not succeeding in making them look sexy.

Free unsolicited information. I can tolerate Bruce Springsteen in small doses. I can't stand his version of Santa Claus is coming to town. A lot has to do with it being way overplayed.

I'm not in need of a 17T freewheel. Don't throw it away though

I've been going through my stuff (crap) and have gotten rid of 8 cranksets, two rear derailleurs, a front derailleur, and a box of skewers. I've made almost $700.
