Everything in moderation. Not to be abused.

My healthy life style keeps me on a motorcycle and bicycle for 45 years. < Minus the down time given by the dangerous people that drive cars and trucks around me >

That aint too healthy either as any doctor will be happy to point out also.

Edit: Time to suck down one of those trick or treat candies in the big bags.

I've never really had a desire to own a motorcycle. That's mainly because almost every enthusiast that talks about the future says what they'll do "when" they wreck rather than "if" they wreck.

Funny you say Dominos; there's one just up the end of my street. I reckon I'd beat the drone by the time it was ordered, to the time it finished in their oven tho. It wouldn't be worth sending one to me, I may as well just walk 5 minutes up the street. They even gave me a free 1.25 litre Pepsi and I think from memory maybe a free garlic bread too, because they thought I'd waited too long and/or they *u*ked up the order in some way - I once again can't remember exactly what the situation was. Needless to say, and either way, I was happy with it.

I like your idea though. Although, their US site redirected my browser to their page listing their worldwide locations, so I'm still not really exactly sure what a "hotspot" actually is, although I imagine it's some kind of "pick location of some kind".

Perhaps a vpizza might interest you. I already ate it tho...

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

It should be back in the 70's in a few weeks. I live here for the fall, winter, spring months.
The summer?
Not so much.

I usually ride my motorcycle north for cooler weather conditions in the summer.

I sort of did. Nearly got as far as looking seriously to buy one... when I realised I was only going for second best (for me*) because I couldn't afford a sports car. And riding a motorcycle without being fully committed is a fast way out of this world.

Couple of decades later I'd saved enought 10 and 20 cent coins to get a good enough approximation to a sports car to keep me happy.

*Not criticising motorcycles, just saying my brain is hardwired for cars.

Been riding motorcycles for 40 years but the older I get the more I care about the "nice folks" in cars who are constantly trying to kill me...actually haven't ridden in a year or so.

You learn something every day. I never heard of "sausage gravy" before. Just googled it and found that it is something like wurst ghoulash but greasier. Mind you, wurst ghoulash is something central Europeans eat for a light lunch, not for breakfast.

It takes a strong will to not eat all of the candy. In one of my classes, there's a jar the teacher keeps full of candy of various sorts, and for a good two weeks, every time I walked past it, I couldn't help but snag another piece. The novelty kind of wore off. Now, though, there's a basket of tangerines I can't stop eating. I guess what I'm trying to say is, give them broccoli.

That reminds me of a famous test for willpower in children. A marshmallow is put on the table and the child is left alone with it for five minutes. He/she is told beforehand: "If you eat it, that's fine but you won't get any more. If you haven't eaten it by the time I come back, you get another one and you can eat them both."

The ability of the child to resist temptation in order to receive future benefits was found to correlate more accurately with later examination results and job prospects than any scholastic aptitude tests.

Hasn't anyone told you not to take candy from strangers?

It is something Domino's has been advertising as a new way to get Pizza (in the U.S. at least). They setup locations near beaches, parks, and other public areas where they'll deliver the pizza instead of you having to give them an address.

Given how often we hear about pizza delivery drivers getting robbed even when there IS an address I suspect this either won't last long or only will be available in the daylight hours after time.
