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, old entrance to Samuel P Taylor (SPT) state park along Sir Francis Drake. Westbound on SFD from woodacre to olema is in my top 3 stretches of road within a morning ride's range of the bay area, so beautiful through the redwoods, not much elevation but some gentle rollers and twisties...mmmmm.

Nor I unless you count a PSMA in March and monthly eye injections, both of which are routine and taken in stride.

It’s very frustrating, the Birth certificate wasn’t even processed until a month after he was born, the social security office wasn’t any help either. I’m convinced his card got lost in the mail, which is completely unacceptable.
My SSI letter was last seen at US customs, earlier in the week. Registered mail. Vamos a ver

Notwithstanding the lack of certificate, they pay baby medical expenses in the hospital, do they not?

In addition to aforementioned infusion, I think I have two witch doctor appointments and two dental appointments on the calendar. They're booking months in advance.

and another Porsche now more appreciated - a current model

I got 8 bikes inside and outside my wife's Prius. 2 inside, 4 on the roof rack, 2 on the hitch rack. Delivered to Monterey for a bike tour.

The Team Bahrain McLaren support car:

a pic of the Prius carrying the bikes would be great

That would be, but no photo exists. We were too busy trying to get those bikes down to Monterey in time.

It must be a boat. Boats have the steering wheel in the back.

It's like a sailboat - big wheel at the back.
