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

There's a small chain here, Western Bagel, and they have them. They also ship nationwide. I'm no expert but I think their bagels are really good.
"Western Bagel bakes both round and long/stick bialy daily that are available in our retail locations throughout Southern California and also available through our online store."

Lol, they turn off the payroll functions annually if you don't pay their subscription fee annually!

At my eye exam Saturday I found out I have a cataract developing in one eye. That's the problem with blue eyes, the positive of having women chasing you because of their attractiveness is offset by the susceptibility to cataracts.

Youre telling your age now, both were 60s staples.

I was never a big fan of knishes, Id rather go find me a Nedicks guy. Egg creams at the lunch counter were awesome, I could not believe when they disappeared, due mainly to that raw egg scare.

There's no egg in egg creams. Just milk, seltzer water, and chocolate syrup.

I remember visiting New York with my crazy ex-boss. We'd been manhandling a couple big, heavy cases uptown because he let himself get trapped in a conversation with some guy, and then it rained and the taxis all dissolved. After an hour of walking a block and then swapping sides to destroy both shoulders equally, we stopped at a diner, and he ordered an egg cream. He grew up in NYC and Connecticut, so for him it was comfort food from his childhood. He closed his eyes and drank it reverently.

We had a Nedicks (pronounced"Needix") a block away from where I grew up, which I never liked. I can still remember how insipid that orange drink was from 60 years ago. The hotdogs I could take or leave, but I did like the caps the servers wore. I also remember when every drug store had a lunch counter and every candy/news shop had a soda fountain. Both of those types of establishment had a typical smell, which I still remember vividly. Part of getting old, I find, is having ancient and vivid memories out of nowhere.
