Addiction 2023.1

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

Yep, the weekend will get down to the sub-zero digits.

So, is the handle-able number an integer ≥ 1?

Sadly KCB doesn't have an accordion, if one is called for. Apparently no "rain stick" either, whatever that is. It became an issue last night.

Snow dog is not happy about the sun being out, burning off the precious crusty snow.

Mine used to show dollars change and % change in two separate columns. Now they're stacked in cells in one column. I'm fine with it but the double stacked figures threw me off when I first laid eyes on it.

Man, if I'd taken ALL my money out of everything else and put it in DKS at $73.81, I'd be retired now. Of course knowing my luck if I had they'd have probably tanked

Even the tranches I bought at $90ish are doing pretty well.
