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

I'm listening to a podcast with an immunologist and she talks about how eating is an inflammatory process. My hunger strike seems even smarter now than it did yesterday.

LSS had remarkable improvement with a very low carb diet, but she has osteoarthritis, not rheumatoid.

What little I know about osteo does not square well with the idea of diet having a significant impact on it, but I don't even know my own condition, so what do I know?

Salting your sidewalk has largely become a lost courtesy in Philly. I had to do mine twice yesterday.

Same or similar. High of 1°F and -20° windchill is keeping me inside. Planning on an easy ride as I'm starting to get quite a bit of DOMS.

It will be a miracle if I see road cycling until the end of the month.

I have no sidewalk. Or salt. Unless you mean eating salt.

Now I’m sitting in an urgent care waiting to be seen. The my daughters’ stepdad was exposed to COVID at work on the 3rd and found out last night. They had a number of days exposed to him, and were then here from Wednesday to last night. Ugh.
Nice pics. Hope you feel better soon.

So, "the doctor's kitchen" says eating is bad for you?

Good luck with your test.

Still happens, but not as much. But we haven’t gotten much snow the last couple of years. The 6” a couple of weeks ago was the biggest storm in two years. Last year we got 0.6” of accumulating snow all winter.
