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

I am guessing it’s the French Connection.

Now for a tech rant I need to print out a document. Our ******g HP printer is low on COLOR ink. I don't want to print anything in color, and there is PLENTY of black ink. But the stupid printer will NOT print for me because the color ink is low.
Printers suck or at least everyone that I ever owned did.

I have good luck and bad luck with printers. The HP 8600 at my office (where I am right now) has been serving me almost flawlessly for well more than 5 years.

Nope. There is no Rosetta Stone for women. No matter how “confusing” they act, just say, “Yes, Dear.”

Nice- I enjoyed it too. I bought some stuff from Ass Savers that helped keep the bike cleaner, unfortunately the rear piece arrived broken and replacement arrived post ride. Filthy

I got an SKS S-blade, after getting my ass soaked on a little 13 mile ride on New Years Day. Works great! But it takes up seatpost real estate so I have to carry my saddlebag stuff in jersey pockets to leave room for the S-blade, a light, and my Varia.
