Addiction 2023.1

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Yes, so you'll have something else to lose sleep over.

My older one did. The younger one hated having her arms pinned down. My young grandson seems to be a non-burrito kid.

I love babies. I like holding them and playing with them. Don't even mind changing them. Can't wait for my kid(s) to have one.

My wife, on the other hand, not so much. She wants them when they are out of diapers.

I have people in my Strava feed that post every activity they do - sightseeing walks while on vacation, playing frisbee golf, weightlifting, yoga...
