    Um, figuring out my movie:



    (Srsly? Michael Bay directing Jessica Chastain and Kevin James in a...drama??)
    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    me? Oh nothing, just picking up second hand toys for a steal!
    Picked up a power meter (Ultegra 8000 Stages) for $280 yesterday and today snapped up Roval C38 carbon wheels for $650.

    I can still go out and ride just outside in NYC. Both coming in end of week and I am pretty stoked.

    Monty Python movies are on tonight: Life of Brian and now Holy Grail.

    Got some lunch from the local pizza place, all tables/chairs gone, and the guy (six feet) in front of me had a full respirator on, like what you'd use for chemical fumes. I need to start bringing my camera.

    Not just today but this is pretty much my routine since the lockdown started. We are in our 23rd day of lockdown here in Italy.


    - our home has never been so clean,when i need to relax I just start vacuuming and wiping floors,it somehow relaxes me.

    - occasionally peek at my bike wondering when I'll be able to ride it again.

    -started doing some workouts. I've stopped riding 2 weeks before the lockdown started and for the past 4 days the thing began to take a toll on my mental integrity, I'm so lucky to have such a patience and loving wife. I'm still able to drive to work where I have large property where I can take brisk walks and push ups,that changed my mood immediately.

    - occasionally indulge with junk food. My body can't stand that and warns me with bloating,sense of fatigue and skin eruptions. Packed some fresh fruit today to clean my system. I need to stop that asap.

    - lose my mind about my business's future and I'm trying to avoid that as much as possible,that doesn't lead me anywhere and causes me bad nightmares and difficult sleep.

    - we sleep till late. We love to sleep late but that should be a weekends only thing,but it's not,not crazy about it.


    - I occasionally skype with my USA friends and I'm happy they're all safe. Most of them have lost their jobs. One of them was a chef on a mega yacht,she was living on it for the past year and now she's actually without home in Miami,staying in a hotel,I wish she was here safe with us, our son love her,she calls her aunt.

    - I realize almost daily how much money I'm saving. We are not big spenders,we have zero debts and we lead a pretty frugal lifestyle, but that eventually was not enough. The 2/5/10/15 or 20 Euro worth of daily or weekly useless purchases are now gone. I've filled up my car twice in a month and the gauge right now is still on full. Seriously,this will make me reconsider the way I should spend my money when all this will be over.


    - I'm writing an article about my region and the soon to be missed tourist summer,hoping an online Aussie cycling magazine will eventually publish it.




    All in all it's pretty boring,but it could be worst. My relatives all live in one of Italy's most hit zones and they say it's basically ambulance sirens 24/7. I appreciate what I have now more that ever.

    I'm drinking copious amounts of beer. Almost daily. Beer drinking amounts and frequency not seen outside of vacation weeks at the beach in the summer. But for 3 weeks running, thus far.

    I like beer.

    Set up to work from home. Today we decided to make split pea soup, and I'm pretty amazed with how delicious it turned out! The key is to blend it, an immersion blender is a game-changer.

    Split Pea Soup

    1/2 lb Goya split peas (dry)
    3 medium carrots, sliced
    1/2 white onion, chopped
    2 large cloves garlic, chopped
    1/4 cup olive oil
    2 bay leaves
    1 quart water (4 cups)
    pinch salt/pepper/spices to taste

    Add all ingredients to slow cooker, cook for 4 hours ("stew" setting.) Shut off and let stand 1 hour to cool slightly. Remove bay leaves and blend until smooth.

    Just checking in.

    I still like beer.


    I'm trying to remember if I ever drank this much beer on a regular basis... during my misspent youth, during my 4 years in the navy, during my 4 years of college after the navy, during my mid-20s - mid-30s in the 80s when I worked at a marketing agency in downtown philadelphia and we closed a local bar at least 3 nights a week, etc, etc.

    Beautiful 70dF today with some gusts of wind. Went for 20mile solo ride. City closed all MUTs so I rode on local roads. Not many cars but the people who would have been on MUTs are on local roads running, walking and biking. It was crowded. So much for social distancing enforcement by the authority.

    I have made that, for reference, you can use any dried beans black, pinto, navy..... Any! I use a smoked ham bone or bacon sometimes too. Keeping it in mind that beans and rice is a complete protein
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    I'm riding A LOT... I live right by the entrance to a large hilly park that is still open but closed to vehicular traffic.

    Each ride is a gift and I realize many people are not in a position to listen to the waterfall, to birds chirping or the sound of their own labored breathing.

    25/2.5k every time it gets above 60. Keeping it short, in the neighborhood and impactful.

    I've never been bored in my life and I'm still not. I have plenty of things to do around the house, plenty of chores, plenty of books I want to read, plenty of movies I'd like to watch, plenty of trails to ride and bike. And plenty of work to do.

    In all honesty, if our young son wasn't home from school and if our babysitter could still come over, I'd be totally happy right now. I'm very good at entertaining myself. And LOVE the lack of motorists on the roads.

    Been posting in GD. I don't know why . . . .
