199 in the 41! Thread About Nothing at all!

Notices
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

Time to learn, John. Nothing impresses a girl more than a man that can cook.

I can clean the kitchen, the women seem to like that!
I rented a room from a friend who eventually became my best man at my wedding. This guy is one of the best cooks I've ever known and could whip up something great from random ingredients. He would try to make anything, from baking to French cuisine. I should have learned from him! Sadly, he's very sick right now and might not be around much longer. He told me on the phone Sunday that he would like to cook one more time for his friends. I hope he can do it, it always made him feel good to see people enjoying his cooking.

True 'nuff. I'll happily cook for anyone if I don't have to clean up afterwards.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend. You should make that happen for him. Spend the day helping him cook the meal and then enjoy it together.

It would be cool if it could happen, especially if a few of his good friends will come. Two of his kids were actually where I was last night and they weren't very optomistic about his future, though.

Another thing that sucks about getting older is seeing people leave.

I think the rain has stopped, might be time to take the mtb out for some muddy fun.

One of the roads that takes you to Hell, MI is called Darwin Road. Additionally, the road to Hell is not paved with good intentions but rather potholes and chip seal just as some might expect.

Also....feel the need to say that I can cook well. Not a lot of different stuff yet, but I have a natural talent....AND that should count for more because I am happily married and NOT trying to flirt hopelessly in this thread.

It seems that all the roads in Michigan must lead to Hell right now as they are all full of potholes and chip seal.
