    To each their own! I've lived with cows for neighbors. Both have their appeal. When I lived in the country, we had to drive *everywhere*. I can walk to stores and restaurants and it's a 15-20 minute bike to work (not that a commute matters right now). On the flip side, there is a lot more noise, more crime, etc. I tend to move every 10 years or so - we'll see what happens in about 6 years. :)

    No I hear you. I live in a city. Way prefer the country but my employer pays me a handsome sum to live in the city. Once that part of my contract is up I'll move back to the country. But I respect that not all situations accommodate our desires. Doesn't mean we have to like it. Just means we work hard to achieve them. :shrug2:.

    Wife bought some epicure stuff, spices and shit. I honestly haven't bought anything in months outside groceries and gas.

    Did buy some bug spray and showered in that to mow the lawn...had the lawn tractor pegged and they were still aggressive. Next time I wear my mosquito shirt.

    In the market for a new bike so picked up a Scott hardtail. The difference when jumping up to a 29er is huge. Loving the hydraulic brakes too.

    i've wanted a 650b for years now. can never pull the trigger or justify the cost i found the 29er to be fast but less capable in technical sections. the hardtail was a nice choice with the 29 though. i wouldnt mind a full rigid 29er for trail riding. My friend has a Surly rigid that i'm very envious of.

    anywho
    20' roll of brake line
    brake flaring tool
    brake fittings


    guess what i'm doing today haha

    no whole wheat flour in the city so no.

    we're currently shopping for a canoe, but know nothing about them. 15' is for 1 or 2 people?

    That's enough for a couple people. Its got two seats and a cooler/seat in the middle. Some rod holders and lots of room for gear. Canadian tire sells a "pelican" version of it.

    By no means top of the line but great for an occasional adventure.

    Why do you need multiple canoes?

    If it comes to that, absolutely.

    That Bug Shirt that I ordered came yesterday, and it's amazing. Wore it yesterday trimming the entire perimeter of the property. Ditches, bushes, tree line, etc. Not a single bite. Worth every bit of the ~$100 it cost. :lol:

    that's pretty affordable, and all we would need i think. I'm hoping to pick one up used for a deal; i feel like its in the exercise equipment and wine making category of things ppl use once and never again after the first time

    I’ve never thought of it that way but you’re right. I’ve owned a couple of canoes over the years but they mostly acted as lawn ornaments.

    The “sometimes works But usually doesn’t” electronic deadbolt on my front door finally died so I replaced it with a new one + new knob which then meant I needed to change the house numbers and outside light fixtures at the same time so they match...? Wife’s thoughts, I don’t care.

    and then messing with said fixture because the would NOT function at all. Switch on, off, led bulb, halogen bulb, nothing. I have my hue system set to talk to the outdoor bulbs but the switch over rides it if you click it so wtf. Spent 2 hours wiring and re wiring making sure the connections were solid and the marettes were tight

    turns out the new fixtures have a photocell that I never saw. Cover it with a piece of tape and it works perfectly.


    Fuck my life
