I rode 13.79 miles yesterday in Riviera Valley... which is, in fact, in the Italian Alps. Not a lot of climbing, but you don't need hills to push your legs. You do that by picking up your speed. The higher your cadence, the higher your heart rate. As I've always said, your legs are the engines of you body.
Now that I've finished up the second season of "Lost in Space" on Netflix, I've moved on to "The Expanse." Amazon Prime picked up this series after the SciFi channel cancelled it. I had seen a few episodes quite a while back and only found it somewhat interesting. Well, in the years since then the show has transitioned from a science fiction mystery into something akin to Frederick Pohl's classic novel "Gateway." Here's the trailer:
Oh, and I guess the Idiot Jerk and his Idiot Party were taken off guard by their assassination of an Iranian Colonel. Mikey Pompeo is claiming our European Allies are helping as much as they need to be.... I think he needs to revisit the definition of Allies. I do believe he was expecting the groveling of supplicants, but then he is a Crazed Conservative Christian.
And then the Idiot Jerk Tweeted some nonsense about targeting 52 sites if there was any form of retaliation... Thanks to those Crazy Christians he now has a god complex. All they see is the power he is going to give them. In case you didn't know, this is how evil works. Neither he, nor they, understand those who used to be our Allies are just going to sit back and watch him shit his pants.
