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

Got through motor vehicles and now have a tough choice as both E3 and Volta a Catalunya are on. First world problems, indeed!

that was something else

surprised Izzo / MSU didn’t box and one and try to limit his touches

apparently he / they did not think this kid - the ‘little kid’ (John Calipari reference) - could control and dominate the game as he did

my guess is he would consider box and one or least face guard the guy ... something ... if they played again

My family had a Plymouth when I joined it. A sedan. Two parents and 6 kids in a 54 Plymouth sedan. Obviously, that was before seatbelts.

The only "muscle car" I had was a 67 Mustang 4 speed, 289. I did have a 66 LeMans, a 69 LeMans, a 63 Grand Prix and a 65 Grand Prix but they weren't muscle cars, per se.

There are plenty of people walking around outdoors, riding bikes, driving, etc. masked here too. I figure a few are making a political statement, some are folks with real vulnerabilities who don't understand the risks very well, and the majority have contamination or social phobias. The acceptability of masking must be a godsend for that last group.

Lived just shy of the 65th parallel for 43 years. Tad chilly for a very long time. Now live on the balmy 59th parallel.

Good luck!

A bunch of people I know got drenched unexpectedly at the Rose Bowl last night. I might have been one of them, but an urgent need to replace our doggie door kept me home.

I finally removed that cassette that wouldn't let me use the third from the bottom. Upside down, right side up, that one just wasn't available It was a 7 speed. I put on a 9 speed because that's what I had at hand. I suppose I could now have some chain issues, with the chainrings still being 7 speed. I really don't understand how these things work, in detail. I know it has to do with the spacing between the plates vs the thickness of the cogs, but I am unaware of the parameters involved. I have a new 8 speed chain here, and all the rest are 7 speed, as far as I know. I rarely throw a chain away.

Actually, the chainrings are vintage 1980, so they could be six speed. ?Quien sabe?

Latitude and Longitude.

What’s your Township and Range location relative to the nearest Principal Meridian?
