Falling of the Face of the World

It's been a slow month for the bike really. Between weather, trailwork, and light maintenance issues with the Midget. God, its really been 2 weeks since I've ridden. UGH. Oh yah don't forget Turkey Day.

I may finally take myself on a pilgrimage to Fredrick perhaps Monday if it isn't super rainy this weekend. I want to ride more. But between work and life. Maybe next week I can hit the Rosaryville Night Ride.

I guess I should go prep for tommorow even though the rain chance for tomorrow is near 50%, but who knows we might dodge the rain bullet. Gotta be positive.

I do feel like I'm getting better at doing my own adjustments. I did reset the entire rear-d. And I think it's better adjusted now than it was. On a funny note while adjusting the thing last night in the man cave, I turned off the heat at the master switch and forgot to turn it back on. It was 55 in my house this morning. I could only laugh at my very cold self this morning.


Had some good beers lately though, including Delerium Tremens, a DFH Black and Tan (Chicory and 90), and a winter seasonal I don't remember out at Whole Foods fairfax. I also picked up a Delerium Noel to try sometime soon.

Also I must pimp Old Dominion's Baltic Porter as a great winter dark beer. Lagered and with a nice malty sweatness and just on the edge of am imperial/stout perhaps. Gonna pick up a 12 tommorow if I do go down to Wakefield.

Also gotta give props to Hormel's new Turkey Chili. Tastes just as good as the original if not better and A BUNCH lighter, 190x3 per serving vx like 270x9. Not bad for a whole can even with 2 servings.

Damn this laptops dieing again, the charging port is severally F'd Up.

Man, I'm an idiot, ha.

Be sure to check out Anderson Valley's Winter Solstice...excellent holiday beer!

That may be what I had at whole foods....Hmmm I may have to go and re-investigate tonight or tomorrow.

Cheers!

I highly recommend the liquid treasure that is Brouwerij St. Berarndus' Christmas Ale; my favorite seasonal bar none.

I second DT's recommendation, too...tasty!

Funny you should mention the St.Berarndus, it was one of the first higher end/imports that I used to occasionally slurge on back in my first legal drinking years, a professor of mine pointed it and several other abbey ale's as being old traditional beers.

I'll keep an eye out for that definitely.

Yo, Rob, what are you doing this Saturday? Bunch of us SSOFTies are hitting this on bikes...pricey, but should be a great time...

Damn it, I really need a new job, this working Saturday stuff is really starting to suck.

Sounds like an awesome time, I'd totally roll on that otherwise.
