She is so lucky the seller caved. I bought a house with SolarCity/Tesla.... I don't hate it. It doesn't save me much, if anything.

I had to terminate someone’s employment today. Even when it’s the “right” thing to do, it’s hard.

I'm embarrassed a little that I knew nothing about this. That cemetery is miles from my childhood home, and I've driven past it more times than I could count. I was chatting with my brother about this and he shared the following he learned while doing a research paper in college on the matter:

    I believe in one of the Kruschev/Nixon exchanges, the comment was made, “at least we didn’t send troops to fight in the American Revolution “ and Nixon had no idea what he was talking about

I can't convey how lovely Cusco is. I felt rushed at Ollantaytambo - take your time there if you can.

yah... I''ll ride in the rain - I don't mind it at all. But I haven't done ice/snow since I was a kid and learned that hard way that bikes and ice don't mix. And honestly - my last commute was better at night - more trails, very little on surface streets. My current commute is just a few too many miles on not-so-bike-friendly streets to begin with, in broad daylight. I don't need to ride... so I only ride when I feel safe. Even as a conscientious driver - during the winter when it's dark, it's just really damn difficult to see a bicyclist - even when they're lit up like they're at burning man.

everything I've seen skimming through this is impressive and I am in awe. I look forward to watching it in full.

I can't believe they handle all of that lumber with no gloves. Their hands must be practically leather.

I have looked very seriously at e-bikes. But honestly - I like (and could use) the exercise. My challenge during these months are more about the iced over paths, and the fact that it's dark during the commute hours. Only a few more weeks and I should be back in business at least a few days per week.

WWOD. I like it.

Hoping no offense to anyone else at that gathering... Oma was the most enjoyable to chat with. Simply a delightful woman.

Late to the pub... as per the usual lately.

As it turns out, the fuel pump in a Mini Cooper costs more than you might think... It makes me crave more sunlight in the morning so I can get back on my bike to work program.

I've got some time booked this weekend for a creative project I'm working on. More on that later.

I love you all and miss you more.

I also happen to like the fact that it's the one and only note after what must have been hours and hours of briefings and meetings...

    They're basically using the company's platform to make fun of them.

that's maybe what I don't get... are they unable to remove it? or are the gonzo enough to just not care and clicks are clicks are clicks?

it's weird.
