Important to note that the cheese was, as Ina Garten herself would say, "a GOOD pecorino," not parmesan. Add about 3 more cloves of garlic...and Dan pretty much captured the rest.

Dude, I got to ride in a Unimog when I was in Hawaii. It's an amazing vehicle; gives you the impression that it will just go where you point it, regardless of what's there.

Dear lazy plus:  I found these in the network closet of my new house.  It's an Avaya phone something but the picture didn't come out well and I can't read a model number off of it.  Any idea what this is?

Of course your new house has a network closet. I would unplug them, it'll keep SkyNet at bay for a few more hours...

View from the headlands.  Nice way to start the day.  The rain even held off until I was a few block from home.

Follow up on the new CX bike:

I've switched out the rear derailleur for for a XTR M-972 shadow mountain derailleur.  This was to make sure I could have a 32 rear cog for excursions in the Marin Headlands.  With a small inline cable adjuster it works great with the Dura Ace shifters.  The cable routing for the XTR derailleur works better with the top tube routed cable too.

I also switched out the crank to a SRAM Red Exogram with Wickwerks chainrings.  This is lighter than the Canondale Hollowgram crank and less than half the cost.  512 grams for the crank, axle, chainrings and bolts.

It works perfectly even though it's a total mix of components.  I just need a way to work in some Campy parts for the trifecta of manufacturers on this bike.

Unfortunately life has gotten in the way of actually racing cross, but I've been able to do some awesome rides in the Headlands on it.

Just when I thought that there were no more forms of Metal to be found.  Thank goodness you unearthed this and have been playing it full blast all evening.  I am so thankful.
