Addiction 2023.3

Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

I saw a Monarch on my walk along the Nature Trail in Arendtsville last week. Unfortunately, it took me too long to get my phone out, and the camera turned on, and it got bored and flitted off. So you'll have to accept this Yellow Swallowtail, who was more patient, instead.

Mrs datlas and I went computer shopping. It may be a piece of crap, but we got an HP laptop. I prefer a desktop but mrs datlas uses Zoom and wanted something with integrated camera/mic.

looks tighter in the back, maybe at the FD? on my aethos the pinch point is the di2 cable coming out of the RD, otherwise i think it could go much bigger.
