Bluntness

I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

On Shifting Gears

We have drizzle.  The forecast is for rain on and off throughout the morning and early afternoon.  We need the rain.  Interestingly enough, from now on the temps are rarely forecasted to rise above the high 60's.  This means fall is finally here.  I turned off my Central Air.  Haven't pulled the woolly blankets from the cedar chest yet... but that's head this way fast.
At 11:10 yesterday morning my new trainer arrived.


Holy crap.  This thing ways 70 lbs.  The Neo works with my Rouvy.  The Tacx app is downloaded into my phone.  The new cassette is arriving tomorrow, as well as the tool to tighten the cassette to the trainer.  Translating 'Bikeese' into the vernacular - this is a cassette:


These are the gears for your bike.  Your chain will moved from larger gear to lower gear as you shift.  This is what it looks like when assembled:

The cassette fits on the hub of the trainer and your bike is attached.  Biggie was not impressed.


And, instead of shifting gears, the Idiot Jerk in the White House let loose with a salvo of anger yesterday.  There was some sort of press conference with the Finnish Ambassador and all the reporters wanted to do was ask the Idiot Jerk about the impeachment.  Can we talk about Karma here?  I cannot even begin to imagine the turmoil roiling around inside the Idiot Jerk's head as he tries to trade off one insanity for another.  Nothing is working for him anymore.  All his shitty tricks are being exposed.  And his delusional base keeps sending his campaign money - $135 million was the last figure which I believe gets credence.  They don't understand he and his spawn are already siphoning that money away.  As time passes, his desperation will increase, and his behavior become more erratic.  He has absolutely no clue on how to shift gears.

  1. I just read in the news this morning that he is now going to impose 25% tariffs on certain goods from the EU. Mostly luxury goods - Scotch whiskey, Italian cheese, French wine - but not ONLY luxury goods. And of course it will affect prices in the US. It could be as soon as 18 October. So I guess the EU will retaliate pretty swiftly. Jeez, how much more has to go down the plug hole before this guy "leaves" office!

    1. I think that's his strategy, to tell everybody they need to investigate Biden.
