Just Like Old Times

It sure is nice to be back in the saddle on Pacific Coast Highway, especially on such a fine Saturday as this.

Doing It Right.

The portions are large and the temperature hot!  While unfortunately this cannot always be said for many popular dining establishments, thankfully one of my San Francisco favorites knows what’s important.  My previous glowing review stands, even if liver is no longer a daily option.  From the rich and hearty beef bourguignonne to one sizable and flavorful marsala pork chop, my menu exploration will most certainly continue.  I highly recommend your own visit the next time you find yourself on the Marina-Presidio border.  It’s refreshingly clear that now after 40 years of practice, Liverpool Lil’s leads the way in doing it right.

The Tougher Choice?It’s all in the name, and I’m counting on this allegedly longer-lasting make.  Let’s just say that in 600 miles of cycling so far in 2013, this has not been my year.

First came a broken shifter cable, annoying yet simple and inexpensive enough to fix.  Then a week later came not one– but two!– sidewall punctures on a brand-new set of tires, from which these aptly named replacements came about.  Apparently two “occasions” were insufficient vexation for a one-month riding period, because this past week produced a slip and a recovery, ending in– crack!  The result:  A broken carbon seat post.

Now I’m back in the saddle once again.  This series of rare setbacks to “endure” had me momentarily down, but certainly far from out.  With 45 miles today, it appears I’m off to a solid restart.  We’ll just have to wait and see if these tires keep pace with my psyche.  After all, in both name and practice, it’s about:  Endurance.

The Entire Lot

At least now I know a new member of the family is on the way.  Naturally the spot for the 2014 CLA grabbed and held my attention.  Otherwise, with nods to a band of mischievous senior citizens, a supremely confident young Audi driver, and the indelible words of the late great Paul Harvey, the entire lot this year struck me as rather lackluster.  While Tide did amusingly remind us that “no stain is sacred,” my overall impression remains.

So comes and goes another colorful installment of Super Bowl commercials.  I’m left with just about as little to say as last year, with nowhere near as much to applaud as two years ago.  This time around the game itself proved the more interesting show, close but not close enough as it turned out for San Francisco!

New Orleans put on a good show.
