The local bar has stopped selling Fish and Chips, which was excellent and the only thing I ordered there.
I asked Twitter for some recommendations and boy did they oblige.
Might do a midwestern Fish Fry road trip sometime.
Locally, gonna try Cuppy's in Ypsi. Any others?
Today in "I don't understand" - a 1967 Ford F250 that sold for $130,000
Our coffee grinder, a 10 year old $10 Mr Coffee unit, broke yesterday.
I took the opportunity to do my usual "research too much and make a simple decision hard" song and dance.
Lots of articles about superiority of burr grinders. Lots of grinders at the $100 range with very mixed reviews, a few with decent reviews at $250.
But we have been happy enough with the coffee ground up by our $10 Mr. Coffee blade grinder, and it's still available. So I bought that.
Cars Erich wouldn't mind driving around town

Replace the BnB stickers with weird A2 stickers
Today I took a personal day!
So here I am, with a day off and no kids, filling my time with errands and chores as usual. I think I'll take a break for a couple of hours and read.
Ran outside and it was actually a P-51 Mustang flying over from Oshkosh.
I'm usually very pro-union BUT
Apparently the Umich Nursing Association was able to negotiate making the vaccine voluntary for Nurses who work there already.
Same thing happened this week at AAPS, the teacher's union negotiated weekly testing and universal masking instead of a vax mandate.
This is not a good look IMO
Just FYI in case you thought A2council had toned down
You may know CM Hayner is facing recall for social media posts with homophobic slurs in them.
The latest conspiracy peddled by his defenders is that the person who initiated the recall is a fake persona created by some shadowy moneyed interests whose sole purpose is to get Jeff Hayner off council and make themselves more money somehow.
The above is being spread by ex-councilmembers including Eaton and Kunselman.
Today is the first day back from vacation and I'm very happy to have a down day off work, to clean up, relax, and recuperate.
It was a great trip, but still I learned a lot about how *not* to vacation with kids
Main lesson: staying in one spot, preferably within walking distance to a beach and other amenities, is vastly preferable to seeing more things by driving everywhere and switching housing every 3-4 days.
Next year we will be in Sutton's Bay and staying put.
Does anyone have knowledge of Backflow Prevention Device inspections?
I got a letter from the city saying that I need to have a plumber come out and inspect our "Backflow Prevention Device" and certify it within 30 days.
I apparently need to do so once every 5 years.
I'm wondering if this has to do with the Sprinkler system we don't use any longer.
At work: Oncology. In my free time: riding and fixing bikes, taking photos. (Not much free time as a father of two)
