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

Woohoo! Supposedly it'll be new tyre day for me by 7pm. Still blows me away how stuff gets here from there so quickly.

I just noticed they spell dispatch as despatch. Wonder if that's a typo or a Britishism. What the hell is spatch anyways? All I know is dispatch and spatchcock. I always kinda figured it was dis-patch, but if despatch is a word that would be de-spatch.

Perhaps to 'de-spatch" is to fold a spatchcocked chicken or turkey back into 3 dimensions?

I hit an all-you-can-eat Pacific Island buffet for lunch. I'm so full of macaroni salad, beans, and pork right now it's ridiculous.

I didn't have any bread though, gotta watch those carbs.

My 80 year old neighbor went by a food give-away this morning. One of the ones where they put boxes of groceries in your car. He said the line of cars was blocks long so he didn't wait.

He likes to go to the local give-away where things are donated by stores and it's all laid out on tables and you just pick what you want. He comes home with stuff and gives some of it to us. Gave us some really good salads and bread.

Especially one that has had its spine removed.

BIRD CONTENT!!!

While heading back down Mt Hamilton today with my retired ranger buddy, he pointed out to me the bald eagle nest in a eucalyptus tree.

No eagles so far this year, but last year was a bit of a scene, as one of the eagles dropped a baby red tail hawk into the nest:




The story gets weird, as the eagles raised the hawk instead of eating it. But they weren't model parents. They brought another hawk to the nest, but ended up eating it.

Area church has some kind of giveaway a weekend or two a month. Lots of cars in the queue. I assume food is involved.

1mg = $43.33
5 mg = $11.20

How does that make any sense?
