A lovely, fun few days in Hawaii. Some things not pictured:

- I rented a Dodge Charger, which was fun the maybe two times I got away from traffic long enough to open it up (traffic is incredible on the routes around the island I took. I can't imagine what it is like on the popular weeks)
- Musubi is delicious (I ate several from http://www.yelp.com/biz/musubi-cafe-iyasume-honolulu while there)
- There is a great karaoke bar called Wang Chung's there which I closed out my last night there. Lots of friendly folks and home made ginger beer for dark and stormies (of which I had quite a few)

Only 10 miles today, but considering I had to walk the first third of that to get my bike, I'll count it as a win.

BTW: I know I'm spamming a bit with these posts of short and unimpressive exercise lengths. Sorry about that. Posting publicly helps me keep myself accountable for my personal goal this quarter of hitting 70 minutes active time per day (as you can tell, I usually come into the weekends a bit short :-). I'm on the lookout for some kind of platform besides G+ I can use for that where I don't have to buy their magic thingy first.

coach.me is another general-purpose goal-tracking thing.

Lovely day for a bike ride. Still trying to break the 15 mile barrier. Only 1 car that lacked manners on a route that lacked bike lanes for half the distance, but periodically running up your pulse is probably good for the heart anyway.

Well, something that permits flat feet on the ground is great to get started. An hour and a half is awesome for a bike like that: I can't ride for more than 10 minutes on a gbike with similar geometry, before I get frustrated that I can't use gravity to put more force on the pedals.

When you feel the bike is what is holding you back, an upgrade to perhaps a flat bar road bike will probably result in both faster and longer rides.

New faucet is a substantial upgrade on the old one.

15.01 miles today, woo! Of course, I lost my tail light somewhere on that trek. Maybe I'll do it again tomorrow and see if it's still there? :-)

A long article, but worth reading. Talks about the alternative care and bundled package stuff in the ACA (Obamacare) and how they are making a difference.

Wow, it's been a while since I stayed up until 2am reading a book when I should be asleep. This kindle unlimited thing will be the end of me.

(The book? Just a random military scifi book of no particular note, but as good as most I read: http://www.amazon.com/Homeworld-Odyssey-One-Book-3-ebook/dp/B00CKY8SVM)

Summer vegetables and the right kind of salt.

Interesting. We're just finishing a box of Maldon salt, which I really liked, and now have a box of Fleur de sel de Camargue to try out.

Hmm, back from Vegas. Kitchen faucet seems to have sprung a leak while I was gone. Oddly, no shutoff valves below my sink (that seems like an odd place to save money...) ISTM if it's only leaking a couple of drops every minute or so and I have a towel down and a fan on it, I can probably wait until the morning for maintenance, right? It was leaking directly onto the electrical outlet where the disposal and dishwasher were plugged in, so I shut those off at the breaker...

Love this place! Reasonably priced sandwiches that don't skimp on ingredients. I've been there a score times and tried a dozen different sandwiches, and never been disappointed with what I get. Note that this faces plaza del sol, right next to Philz, and the patio on the plaza is a great place to eat while watching people.
