    Woot, Over Easy is front paged again. Someone must like today’s wayback machine!

    Thanks, Bev. I won’t be around much this weekend, a very full one with family visiting, symphony tickets, and a play to attend. Maybe I can read it after the fact.

    I don’t buy most perishables at Costco, except occasionally a cut of meat or fish that I can divide and freeze. I bought a beautiful wild Coho salmon filet there, divided it into four pieces, and froze them. I do buy ALL of my paper goods (towels, TP, napkins), vitamin-type things like calcium, plastic bags, [...]

    I don’t know about freebie days. When I joined back in 1998 they gave away a year’s free membership, which I am pretty sure they don’t do any more. At that time I think they were fairly new in the midwest (this was in the Detroit area). You won’t find their stock significantly different from [...]

    You should be able to get a bike shop to adjust for you, but in general when the pedal is at its lowest point your leg should be almost fully extended. Here is a slideshow of illustrations with descriptions for proper seat adjustment. It is important also how you are positioned “fore and aft” (IOW with [...]

    Woo hoo! Our Costco finally opens Nov. 14. They’re paying starting salaries of $11.50/hr. and up, with benefits.

    I agree with you in principle, but this complex is full of older folks (not all of us really OLD and some younger people also) who aren’t in any shape to rake leaves or chop firewood, so it gets done for us, and in the most efficient way a big lawn service can do it [...]

    Did you figure out your knee problem? Riding is no good if it hurts other than the expected muscle pain (which isn’t even really PAIN once you’re in shape).

    It is really cool that you are riding with your boys!

    Firewood requires an axe and elbow grease.

    SOMEONE’S elbow grease. I’m pretty fit but I don’t want to chop my own firewood, and there are many younger than I who couldn’t. So yes, efficiency, but difficult for some.

    I’ve had my furnace on for nearly a month, although there are days it never comes on. I keep it set at 68º during the day and 60º at night. I did have to watch and turn it off on a few September days when I had windows open, but it’s been at least 2 [...]

    I wonder whether that’s how SD would have been, too? Liking a meal and a place to sleep, letting his friends know he’s OK, but not wanting to be tied down by anyone else’s routines or schedules.

    OK, folks, going to make myself a bit scarce. Family coming, vacuuming and such await. I will be here and look in to see who else shows up! Behave, no flinging sticky buns allowed!!

    I like it. I just figure it’s not something I can change, like my hairstyle or my wardrobe, so I might as well accept it. But I don’t have to let age rule me, and I don’t. Funny though, how the days whiz by. In the evening when I’m getting ready for bed, I think, [...]

    It is just over the proverbial next hill. Total as of yesterday’s ride is 1,957.99! I should make it by early next week, I think, with still nearly a month of riding weather remaining. My weekend is such that I may not get out again until Monday, but I can almost “touch” it now! I [...]

    Yes, there are lots of “old timers” here who recall the Libby coverage. I’m sort of a newbie and I’ve been here at least 8 years.

    Just looked up the Libby trial and there are mentions of FDL in the Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_v._Libby#Press_coverage_of_the_trial

    We had some morning fog yesterday, and then it cleared and was quite nice. Today it is gloomy at the moment, but not too cold. Yesterday we had frost! I am cramming in the bike rides every day I can, because bicycle weather will get more scarce as we get into November.
