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've thought of that before. The thing about teaching photography is that you have to find somebody to donate equipment. I might do some looking around.

I last purchased Brylcream in the early aughts. This is my current butchwax. I've heard there's a Japanese product that's supposed to be the best, can't remember what it's called though.

That's for cataracts, no? Good luck!

I remember doing inventory at a drug store in Sun City circa 1985 and they had tooth brushing powder. Up until then I never knew that was an option.
I'm currently using baking soda. I got tired of throwing away the plastic tubes. Aluminum I could do, but those have became obsolete.

I think I would've started scratching my head and eventually gotten a little upset if they'd played that when I saw them last in 1996.

This would be the least of my worries. I'd be worried the knife would slip and bye bye eye--errr, I mean I'm sure it will go just fine.

Canby Ferry is still running! Looks like it's had an upgrade or two since I last rode it around the turn of the century.

I can't believe this guy stayed in his car for this, didn't even film the cable going by.
