Addiction 2021.1

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

This is why I touched on hunger vs craving. To me, snacking = craving, which is different than actually being hungry. If you need "filling," then you're hungry and, yeah, calorically dense is not the ticket; in that case, I think that you either eat or, with respect to Jens, you say "shut up stomach."

That would completely solve the 'eat too much' problem, because I wouldn't eat any.

Every Fall and Spring, I make up an Excel worksheet, copying the sunrise and sunset times, then adding columns where I either add (morning) or subtract (evening) 2 1/2 hours, so I can tell how early I could expect to start work if I were on the road at dawn, or how early I'd have to LEAVE work to ride after work and before dark.

Of course, now with COVID and WFH, the hours are much more flexible.

This the problem in a nutshell, or as LesterOfPuppets would have it, a nutsack - I have a craving that can be fulfilled by chips, or nuts, or even cereal and milk, but these all have more calories than I need. I need something that handles the craving without the calories.

The only Velo Vol-approved usage of blue cheese is to induce vomiting.

No, only the human calendar, esp. Daylight Savings Time.

The last few weeks in the Fall before DST ends are the most critical, or at least they WERE when I had to leave work and drive 20 miles to where I park to ride. The time required to change, collect my stuff, drive there, get the bike out and set up, put on shoes and helmet, and get going is about half an hour, so if I don't stop working and start getting ready in time, I end up getting back to the car later than I'm comfortable.

This means that Wednesdays and Fridays in late October I finish up earlier and earlier. Luckily, my boss is on the East Coast, and what he doesn't see can't hurt me.

Pretty dark in there. Do the mechanics all wear head lights?

Looks like the fluorescents are off for ambience? I think right now the only person working in the shop is the owner.

I hate the start of DST in the spring. Takes away my early morning light.

I'm dreading dealing with time changes again. 3 years with no change sure was nice.

I'm pretty sure the sun sets this evening at the same time as it did on 8 Feb 2020 (+/- a minute).

Good evening everyone, I'm Blaise Chantrelle and I'll be spinning all the finest in smooth jazz until 3am, so settle into your leather couch and pour yourself a nightcap.

So, you're saying I should be like my neighbor, whose frugality led her to reusing those old fabric calendars in years with matching day/date by putting a piece of tape with the current year written in magic marker?

Speaking of years with day/date repeats, I always get a chuckle when one of my more gullible FB friends re-posts something like "There are 5 Tuesdays this month! This only happens every 500 years!"

Velo Vol requires no spreadsheet. Only a check of the sunset time and a two second calculation. But maybe he's better than math than you.

Probably. But using it is slower than Velo Volxcel.
