So the Red Rocket of Bologna has been replaced, in Barcelona, by this newly refurbished vintage road bike whose color, the bike shop insists, is Cava, not Champagne 😉
They have this deal where if you return the bike in under a year you get half of what you paid back. So, assuming it isn’t stolen, it costs about 30 Euros more than renting a bike for the month and you get a much cooler bike. That said, I have never owned nor ridden this type of "cooler" bike before and I have discovered that the placement of the brakes makes it very likely that I will crash into an unsuspecting tourist who aimlessly wanders into a bike lane without looking. Wish us all luck.

Remember Chicano Moratorium 1970:

Another good busy day. I got a Peloton ride in today, my 261st ride, then did some work with the tomatoes before I head out of town. Straightened them up a little, fertilized, clipped some leaves and branches off. It will be interesting to see what they look like when I get home. I was motivated to walk up to the Arcteryx store and talk to them about my new walking shoes that I really like but the soles are wearing out faster than I expected. They think it is because of how much I have walked since I bought them and walking in a city on concrete will wear them out sooner. I learned I need to switch between other walking shoes more often than I do and maybe pondering getting new shoes more often than I use to 3 to 4 months instead of 4 to 6 months. I will ponder this on my trip before committing to get another pair. It was a excellent walking day today of 21,258 steps according to my Jawbone UP. I was also fortunate to get my glasses checked before the trip, run into Madhavi Padval (always wonderful to see her) and meet two really amazing women at different times during the day, when out and about: Cecilia Gonzales and Clarina Bradshaw. Lucky me, now to get ready to pack for and fly to Amsterdam tomorrow.
"BURGERS TO BEAT MS"
Wow… so eat fast food to beat Multiple Sclerosis? Is that like pizza parties for cancer? Or BBQ for the cure? Maybe cupcakes for diabetes? Steak for heart disease? Milk for osteoporosis?

Sorry if this offends anyone but football season is upon us and this is just fair warning lol. . .Since the football countdown is under one month, I guess it’s time to mention the pre-college football season warnings. None of these are meant to be a personal attack, but each of you have been warned.
1. I will NOT attend ANYTHING past noon on Saturdays unless you have NCAA football on a television.
1a: Television must be a minimum of 50" diagonal with a minimum resolution of 1080p. Events containing ultra-high definition televisions within a direct line of sight will take priority over those that do not.
1b. Events with Tennessee football take priority over all other events, regardless of TV size and definition.
1c. Events with SEC football will take priority over all other events except 1b.
2. I will be high strung, loud, and obnoxious if you are around me while Tennessee is playing. Things may/may not be thrown. If any of your belongings are damaged I will repair/replace them, but I will not care until after the post-game analysis.
3. I will wear orange on Friday and Saturday and very likely Sunday *No exceptions*
4. If you somehow coerce me into attending an event by having all of the prerequisites listed in (1) above, be aware that I will sing Rocky Top wherever I am and every time it is played.
4a. In the event that Rocky Top begins during a prayer, I will patiently wait until the prayer is complete before picking up the song. After all, Jesus was a Volunteer.
5. Weddings are for bye weeks (remember, a bye week this year might not be next year so choose your wedding dates accordingly) It’s not my fault you are starting your married life proving to everyone you are a horrible planner. I won’t be there but I will wish you the best of luck as soon as the game is over.
5b. *As soon as the game and the post game show are over*
6. In the event that we are watching a game together, and you are not a Tennessee fan, you will not cheer against Tennessee and I will not cheer against your crappy team. This rule can be confusing to some, but it is explained by saying that you can make positive statements for your team while not making negative cheers against Tennessee.
Example for (6) above: "We need a turnover. Comeon (insert your team’s name here), get the ball back. We need an interception. This statement is fine.
"Tennessee QB will fumble or throw an interception soon. He’s terrible!" This statement will not be fine, and could result in injury.
7. If you try be cute or funny and dress my kids in your teams colors on Saturday I will spray paint your face orange and I will not warn you to close your eyes before I do it. Make sure to get Walmart promo codes 50 off entire order
Thanks for understanding everyone.
Go Big Orange!
Now Vol fans- copy and paste so the rules are made perfectly clear!

Turkey’s first lady Emine Erdoğan and a delegation including Turkish politicians and heads of Turkish aid agencies arrived in Bangladesh Thursday to visit a refugee camp hosting Rohingya Muslims fleeing violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine state.
The first lady told reporters that Turkey will do everything possible to help the Rohingya, and that her husband, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, would take up the issue at this month’s U.N. General Assembly meeting.
“It is not possible to be not touched by this situation as a human being. May Allah help them. I hope that the whole world will take care of this issue and take is seriously both politically to find a solution and in terms of providing aid to these people,” the first lady said, adding that it is unbelievable to see that such a disaster can occur in this age while the whole world is watching.
Calling on the international community, Emine Erdoğan highlighted that everyone has a responsibility over the troubles that the Rohingya suffer.
