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

Currently using Carveco Maker, as there was a free one-year subscription included with the machine.

Wife made me Turkish Manti and a Basque style cheesecake for birthday dinner. If you’ve never had either, you should.

she makes everything with GF flour due to her allergies and I don’t think I can ever tell the difference.

Yeah, I initially had the Original (not Pro) version in my cart, but the the probe, drag chains, software, etc, weren't included, and were a significant cost. The Pro included those goodies, a larger control panel, and more beefy rails for the X axis, so it was a no-brainer to move up for a few bucks more.

The plan is to do some smaller stuff to ensure a modest baseline; I'll batch out some of the decorative/functional stuff, with a focus on local markets, personalization, hobbies/interests. I've also got some magnetic knife bars that I've already sold online and with a local retailer - I'm doing those as one-offs, pulling those from stock with interesting character.

I'll also use the CNC for larger pieces, higher ticket stuff that probably won't move as frequently. I'm still working on a vertical milling surface, so that I'll be able to knock out dovetails, box joints, mortise & tenons, etc. Some things, like benches or chairs, probably won't get milled directly by the CNC, but I'll use it to create templates and jigs for faster, repeatable work with the more conventional woodworking gear (router, table saw, band saw, etc).

I know his is no news to many of you, but man, as they become more mobile, I gotta watch her like a hawk and be more vigilant. I can't just plop her somewhere and count on her staying put.
Kids that age bounce (and bounce back) pretty well. But yeah, it can be a rude awakening when they go mobile.

One of my YouTuber cooks posted a Basque cheesecake recipe that I've been meaning try, but I don't want to get too fat. Maybe when the weather improves and I'm getting in miles more regularly.

Thats my problem now- sick of the trainer but the weather blows. I did a gravel event in rain, sleet, hail last weekend and that was enough of that weather for me.

Got a bit of a special show I'm seeing tonight. Can't believe he's still touring at his age! Amazing! Seen him twice before. Last time it was quite progressive/fusion, which is totally my vibe. I may sneak out early and grab a bite and a manhattan at the US Grant downtown if all is well at home.

Nice! I saw Herbie Hancock once in the 70s.It was a jazz festival (Newport,maybe) that was moved to Devonshire Downs at CSUN. It was cold and the crowd huddled together to pass wine bottles and joints around.
He was playing an electronic keyboard that they said he had invented. He was playing "Maiden Voyage" and it sounded great until the cold air affected the electronics and the volume went haywire.

With The Older Boy, we totally babyproofed the place. Spent a lot of time and thought and money on it.

It didn't help. We STILL had another baby.

Everyone was so stoked it didn't matter and he moved on with the next number. I don't even remember what other bands were there, maybe it will come back to me later.
A friend went with me and he was not a jazz fan but he was blown away. Not just by the music, but by the fans, also.

But seriously folks!

We babyproofed our place for The Older Boy, and of course as he grew up and got more trustworthy, we removed a lot of it, so by the time we moved to our next place, just before The Younger Boy was born, we did minimal babyproofing. Then, when The Younger Boy reached the age of mobility, we started re-babyproofing the new place and The Older Boy pitched a fit because we were making things so much harder for HIM to reach. So we relented, and The Younger Boy didn't stick any forks in sockets, or fall off a couch and crack his head open etc. So, there's that.

Funny story - when we were buying our current house, TYB was 2 1/2. We had just put together an offer and it turned out there was an Open House that day, so we went. The house has a shed built onto the side of the house, a lean-to shed. TYB went into it and locked it from the inside. The agent didn't have a key to it, and after a few minutes of trying to get him to unlock the door, he became more and more upset - because he didn't realize what he'd done, so he didn't know how to undo it. The agent called the Fire Department, who got there in just a few minutes, JUST as TYB unlocked the door.. Mrs. GJ said, "We HAVE to buy it now!" And we were both favorably impressed by how fast the FD got there!

He came to our booth at MacWorld. I gave him a one-on-one demo of our software (DiskDoubler).

Nights like these are why I love road bikes.

Decent B group with a dozen or so riders and 80 degrees with calm winds. Pretty sunset was the cherry on top.

Rode to the start and back home. Not a lot of climbing but 43 miles on a Thursday was nice.

I read a long time ago that he tried to capture his daughter crawling on the floor and just having fun, in music. Every time I heard it, I pictured a baby doing happy crawl things, bouncing. rocking, just stuff I see babies do. I thought he nailed it. He named the song after his daughter, Jessica.
