    HAPPY new year!

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    an unofficial resolution of mine is to be more active in cycling communities.... I'm back on our club's board as of next week's annual partie.
    Mostly my 13 mile commute as far as riding goes but I've also set goal to ride 100 non commute miles in January and I've already done 25. That's of course weather dependent but ... so far the weather has been mostly ridable (freezing drizzle last week NIX!)

    Good for you, Sue. Weather was always a factor when I lived in Illinois, too, as far as how many miles I could ride in January. Go for it.

    Well, yesterday I rode because it wasn't windy yet in the a.m. and... it abated t0 17 mph (and tailwind, rah ) by 5:00.

    It was the weather being kind to me, tho', because it picked right up in thenight and this morning it was 23 with gusts over 30 so... handy dandy bus pass. (Okay, temp also 23 compared to 41 yesterday).

    We'll see about tomorrow -- snow in the forecast for the weekend but then back to "climate change indicative" warmth.

    But who wants to take Algebra when they’re over 60 anyway?

    I'm sorry your partner has cancer. I haven't been here for ages. Well, my partner is using his algebra for financial modelling for his son's butcher shop...he loves supporting his son's biz in his retirement.

    There’s an actual practical use for algebra? That’s motivating. I thought it was just a required class. Good to know.

    Knott is making good progress. We’re cautiously optimistic. She just had a mid chemo blood work up and cat scan. The “cancer markers” in her blood tests are way the heck down, the metastisis in her liver has almost dissapeared and the tumor is down by 25%. She has 4 more chemo sessions but it makes the process somehow more tollerable when you see it working.
