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

we have cut down on a lot of junk. We have a big attic space over our garage for storage and have our bikes and treadmill out in the garage.

Im probably going to put up a 10x20 shed in the back in the next year or two to be an office / gym with heat and AC

$450 a month property tax is about what I pay here. Of course, house isnt 450 square feet.

I cant tell you what these notes meen, they made sense at the time. I had these notes in a ziplock baggy taped to my handle bars. But its pretty clear it was a Country Inns & Suites. I carry this in my wallet. A momento of a past accomplishment.

yes. Exactly. Grass is optional, pavement is preferred.

Pretty sure, if there's landscaping going on, it's not that cold.

Oof. I think that some guy in NYC messed up his phone number in his browser's auto-fill, or something. His mistake is *my* phone number and I routinely get texts and calls from parcel services, etc. It's mildly annoying.

Today, I got another text, this time from a health care provider. The text contains his User Name and Password for accessing his health records. :facepalm:

The horse farm down the street doesn't let the Actual Cold slow them down much. Last week, they knocked down an old barn and regraded the land. I think it's going to made into a pasture.

The horses have very nice barns. The property used to be a dairy farm. Lots of old outbuildings and disused housing. He's been repurposing the land, since he bought it a few years ago.

So message their provider. Maybe they're walking in the middle of the BQE right now in just a shirt.
