Addiction 2023.4

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

Not sure if that is something I can respond to. Articles I read mentioned why he had one. Not sure I can really say anything else.

I liked Hank. I forgot about him. He reminds me of my uncle. Great character. Mike is cool too. Everyone else sucks.

Strikes me as being as smart as putting guns in the teachers’ purses.

If there's a spacer behind the cassette, you're all set.

When the horrible Gus Fring gets killed by the equally horrible Hector Salamanca, you really don't mind that they're both gone.

Thanks I will let you know if I need them but am hopeful I can use what I have. Shipping wheels is a pita.

Try Better Call Saul. I liked Breaking Bad, but BCS is a whole lot better.

I read the airlines had a program to get pilots armed including 60 hours of instruction. The guy was armed legally when he nutted up.

But, you couldn't tell by looking at it, it's a nice piece of furniture, tall and stately for and upright.

Prior to that, I had rented a nice Kawai and owned various eletric/electronic pianos/keyboards. I have some Yamaha "P" model 66-key that is light, has weighted keys and gets the job done nicely when one of my buddies in my jazz group is hosting music night. Acoustic pianos - I like Kawais. There is a baby grand in my childhood home, and a couple others in the extended family.
we’ve never had a real piano - only electronic keyboards

started with the small yamaha keyboards and eventually moved to the full size yamaha keyboards with weighted keys etc … 86 .. 88 keys .. ? … P85 or something like that

was a challenge to find instructor for lessons at one point because some of the top / recommended instructors required students to have a real piano

Hmmmm. I suspect there may be some flaws in their program, then.

I was thinking maybe he wasn't vetted well before being allowed to pack. Then I thought he is a pilot, ffs.

The fit of this bike is not quite as good as the Habanero but good enough.

Comments?
Heck yeah! Do eeeettt! Di² is good stuff
