    Today is bill paying day. Tomorrow is clean up day. That is followed by gas the car day. How this virus has taken us down to such planning. I shredded some old financial records yesterday.

    There are finally good, interesting shows on TV. I'm watching Grant on History, about general U S Grant, winner of the Civil War and 18th President of the country. I'm also watching Barkskins on AMC. It's a film adaptation of a long book from a couple of years ago. Very interesting, both of them.... Read more

    Part 1: Big Box Store Bikes I am always amazed Walmart can sell adult bikes at ridiculously low prices. This is an 18-speed Schwinn Pathway that is sold at Walmart for $150. This bike will allow a casual cyclist to ride at 9 mph, which happens to be an average pace. There are a few ... Read more
