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

Are you talking about ingesting it or using it as a salve?

I think hemp seed oil as a salve is fairly inactive, unless they're putting some extra CBDs in there or something, and also putting some of that stuff that allows the salve's active ingredients to pass through the skin in there also.

If you're looking at the hemp oil made for ingestion, it's high in Omega fatty acids which is supposed to be good for you but I dunno if gonna help your situation much.

Getting some CBD supplements might have more of a chance of doing something for you.

There may be some shortages of your favourite items in the coming weeks.

Ingesting. I don't think a topical application would help at all.

It would NOT be my first choice and if this does not pan out I will probably look for a 5-8 year old Corolla or Civic, or similar. The big dilemma would be stick vs automatic as I still prefer stick but nfw mrs datlas can use it if stick (like the Saturn).

Fun fact: the biggest Saturn Forum (Saturnfans) went kaput, but the second biggest one (saturnforums) I had an account but I tried to log in today and was told I am perma-banned.

Dad finally stopped driving when he had his second knee replacement. He SHOULD have stopped a couple years before. Not because of his driving, but rather because with his dementia, he sometimes forgot where he was and would keep driving, hoping to see something familiar. One time he got about 2 hours away before stopping to ask for help.

His maternal Grandmother, and his Mom both had dementia, as did both of his siblings. I can't say I'm looking forward to it. As the youngest of 6 kids, I may get to see it happen to each of them in turn before it gets me. Or maybe I'll take after Mom's side - my Great Grandmother died at 100 with most of her marbles.

Went for a ride today. Checked my HRV before setting out, and it was in the green. 34 gentle miles. HR mostly < 135. I started marking other riders a couple times, then remembered I was taking it slow and let them disappear into the distance. Generally felt pretty good, though afterwards I'd say I was about as spent as if I'd done 50 miles.

Temps in the mid-upper 60s, but I decided to overdress so as to avoid getting chilled. We're currently at about Peak Green for the year, and it was sunny and not a cloud in the sky. Beautiful day! So here's a shot of one of my favorite Tree Tunnels - Tripp Road in Woodside.

I saw on FB that my nephew's daughter is going to William And Mary with a full scholarship. Apparently William And Mary WILL do, Steely Dan notwithstanding.

My mil, also the youngest of eight, got to watch it all, before succumbing herself.

My sister was going to have surgery a few years back. I asked where the surgeon was trained, apparently he went to med school in Guadalajara.

My reply to her was obvious and not appreciated. Sad.

Dinner date at Shake Shack. The beer is apparently made for the occasion/location.
