    The good news thread

    Abcde (Absidy) or L-A (Ladasha) are the go

    dropper seatpost on a budget

    There is a 200 buck and ~400 buck Giant one. My young bloke has intermittent issues with the cheaper one. I have nil with the more expensive one.

    Has anyone here lived in New York?

    Well said, Parky. Such an experience. Even knowing the area as a local (or from the perspective of a local) is so much better than just ticking off the traditional tourist stuff. Prospect Park in Brooklyn is like a massive Centennial Park and you can train there fine if you can deal with the loops on the bike. In summer, it is was worth the subway trip into Central Park for the kids to play in the park with water spray jets. $25 a casual swim might be a shock though..... I want to go now.

    An interesting thing was they never had a vehicle even though they were doing very well. They used the subway for work but were members of a "carservice". You just ring up and prebook for the few times you need it. Subway pretty much gets you anywhere and I didnt really have to look at the lines after a few weeks.

    Hey Rog, BIL (and US wife plus child later on) lived there for 8 years. Worked Times Square and commuted in from Park Slope Brooklyn towards the end. They were both professionals and hired a fulltime nanny. We stayed a month with them in 2012 and my wife went a few other times. Can probably get anything specific answered if you PM me. He travelled to Canada every so often to satisfy his Visa requirements. Cant remember exact details. Probably a life experience not to pass up if you can make it work. Couldnt do it forever, but a few years would be ok if you took your own coffee machine

    Swim plateau: how to break through

    You are right, you are screwed, Rog 😁 I had 6 months no swimming once and vowed never again. Took me 18 months to get back to pre break times over all distances. Haven't missed more than a week since. Too scared. And I barely ever race.

    I've only previously seen Iron Man 1 and 2 out of the rest, but loved Infinity Wars. To be fair, my last 3 cinema trips in order of recency are Ninja Turtles, Lincoln and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (yep, the original)

    MTB Shorts

    I love the baggy shorts for the mtb, mainly because mine have zip pockets for phone, keys etc. Nearly all mine have come by driving through Canberra and lucking out with the bargain bins at Pushys. Between the young bloke and I, we have picked up around 6 pairs of lined baggy mtb shorts all in the $25-40 range. Comfy as. I have Fox and Bellweather brands.

    Best Family Beach / Resorts in Phuket?

    That is saying something about Bali and Phuket then. I honeymooned there at the Sheraton and hated the place. Would almost rather go to Hamilton Island...

    Hair Loss

    There is more pride in accepting grey or bald than the Grecian black look I reckon

    Bald is the only one I am missing

    You know you wouldn't. And long Tom Moody was too long for Test cricket and he had talent so you are no chance 🍻
