Time to bust out the frisbee?

Smoke some meat?
Bonfire?

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

yep, EL at Holt. Was a pretty good game first time around. EL is a better team (currently #2 in Class A) - but anything can happen on the road.

mid-upper 50's in February.. I've never minded winter. In fact, I prefer winter over hot summer days.. but I'm not going to complain a warm day or two in February.

I got a Giant Deft 2 last summer and I've never done winter care for a road bike was I supposed to drain the tubes and/or bring them inside? Should I have had my whole bike inside? I normally kept my trail bikes in the garage but this is my first road and I think my tubes cracked :(

Yeah I broke my bike out myself last weekend. Just went for a 10 mile neighborhood kind of ride. Then had a nice bonfire. Got drunk again tonight grilling etc after a four day weekend. Supposed to be 66 tomorrow. I am trying to turn my life around actually

yeah probably not a good idea to leave your bike out during the winter in an unheated space. I keep mine in my basement - not "heated" down there in the traditional fashion but better than out in the elements. I also keep them up on hooks so the wheels aren't stationary with the weight of the bike pressing on them during the downtime.

I don't remember what it was like when you posed this question.

Right now, though, it's sunny and about 65 or so, I think. Nice and cool this morning. Was hot over the weekend - way too hot - not my scene.

Too nice to drive to the gym, so I've been walking lately in my sweat shorts.
