I got this story from a tour guide in Charleston
When the help brought the food from the outdoor kitchen to the big house, to insure they didn't eat any of massa's food they were required to whistle all the way. This brought a barking event from the hungry hound dogs around. So the cook would make little cornbread bits to be thrown to the dogs to keep them hushed while the servants came in with the food. Of course all of them didn't make it to the dogs and the hushpuppy was born.
Good afternoon Rodehazrd.
The hushpuppy is rarely seen or heard of in these parts but I remember having them when I was a kid, I think at a fast food place called long john silvers. They sound really good I love crispy fried stuff and cornbread. I will make some soon.
That story you got from the tour guide sounds like it could be true. It's sad that people treated each other (and continue to do so) with such distrust. I bet they work at keeping the dogs at bay.

yeah fiddy hushpuppies are like fried bread nuggets
the ones we used to make had corn in them too but i am sure there are a few recpies
/ive had them both savory and sweet style
hopefully rhode' will drop some more knowledge when he gets a chance
we have had a wet and cold winter here in socal too fiddy
it seems like its been raining on and off for the past couple months,which is a lot for us
the storms haven been that strong this year,
but they have been consistent which is actually good
/too much rain at once cause a lot of flooding and runoff issues
taking the bike back to the shop you got it from is a great idea
let them tune things up and give her a once over, plus its helps get you established as a regular customer
/good shops offer great service to everyone, but they really take care of their regulars
oh, be sure to bring the bike in clean(this is important) , at least give it a good wipe down and knock off all the mud if any
just go in and share the stoke with the wrenches and im sure they will take good care of you
we dont really have any special st patty day plans for this year
my mom has family friends coming in for the weekend so we might be spending sunday with them
/its still not too late to get a corned beef now that you mention it
other than that i was thinking of grilling up a steak or something like that and of course you know pops gone drank'
how about you man? got any plans
if nothing else its a great excuse for some day drinking
Good afternoon pop_rocks.
I could defenatly see putting some corn kernels into the mix. Speaking of savory and sweet I was suprised that the corn bread I had down south was as sweet as it was. I had always heard that southern corn bread have very Little or no sugar.
It's interisting that you mention the rain you've been having, I just saw somewhere that something like 99.9% of California is drought free for the first time in forever I think. We seem to be getting a little less rain than predicted but the water is puddling up everywhere. We usually don't have a lot of snow melt off like we are having now. With temps in the upper 50's today the frost should be comming out of the ground fairly quick and then the water can drain.
The place I got the bike is really good about taking care of their customers. They do free minor adjustments and such for the first two years after you get a bike from them. And if I need anything else that can recommend it. I might have them do the tubeless conversation but am still undecided. You are right that bringing in a clean bike is showing respect to the mechanics, when someone brings me a dirty uncared for motorbike to work on I'm defenatly not going to go the extra mile for them when I'm servicing it.
I don't have any specific plans for the weekend either but like you said, it's a great excuse to eat, drink, and be merry.

you know what i mean about bringing in a clean bike brother
plus, it frees up your time to look around and get things worked on, not knocking off mud and dirt
ive brought in a dirty bike before, fresh off the trail but i will ask for a rag to give it a quick wipe down and say sorry for it being so dirty
in some ways a dusty beat up bike shows you ride and love your bike, but there is no excuse for bringing in a bike crusted in grime
this has beena good rainy season but you know they are still going to screw with us as far as the water goes
plus socal is a desert
ive thgouth about going tubeless myself but decided it wasnt worth the trouble
a friend did his mimself and said as long as you have an air compressor its not that hard to do
just fill your tire with this gunk (stans) and then quick set the tire just like you would on a car
i am ready for the weekend and hope you are having a great week brother
it felt like spring outside today, temps in the 70 all day
plus we are having a butterfly migration and there are tons of them all over san diego right now
spring is right around the corner my man!
any thoguhts on outdoors this year?

Good afternoon pop_rocks.
I've had customers bring in bikes and 4 wheelers that were so dirty I have had to tell them that I couldn't work on them unless they washed them or paid us to do so. Some people get it but others complain and expect a wash to be part of whatever service your supposed to be doing. I've even had people get so mad and refuse to wash or pay, in that case I've sent some home without doing the work or in others I've watched the dirt fall into their motors while I changed parts. Even if dirt dosent get into stuff it sucks to have to sweep up your work area after working on something. A little dirt is expected but covered in mud where you can't even see the color of the paint is just disrespectful and shows ignorance. I'm sure the bike wrenches appreciate that you bring your ride in clean.
I've heard conflicting things about tubeless. My buddy that races loves them but I've heard horror stories too. I had to put tubes in front and rear last year and I didn't have the right sizes so I'll either put the right tubes in this year or go for tubeless. I don't care about the weight just want them to be reliable.
It felt like spring here yesterday, it was almost 60 degrees and we finally felt some humidity in the air. I'm glad your getting good weather and the butterfly migration sounds cool, I've never seen anything like that. I don't think I'll be doing any outdoor this year. I haven't had any good results and with my aunt selling her house I don't have a spot anymore.
I hope your finishing off your week on a high note brother and looking forward to a nice weekend!

the weekend has begun! and you know im starting it off on a high note
i knew you would get it when i said being in a clean bike
plus, im not taking my bike to a shop for them to clean it
the way i see it is they only have so much time to wrench on it and if they have to spend 5min cleaning it off thats 5min less they could be doing something
if nothing else they can see whats going on and spend more time doing what they do best
yeah im on the fence about going tuneless too
a couple years ago i was all set but just never did it and now i dont feel like its worth the effort
even if you do run tubeless, i think it would be a good idea to packa spare tube
oh, did you ever get one of those c02 tire pumps? they use c02 cartridge just like an air pistol but inflate your tire in an instant
the one i got even has a lock on the trigger you pull to dispense the air so you could in theory reuse it
hope you have a great weekend too my man! and you get to enjoy some of that nice weather!

Good afternoon pop_rocks.
I hope you had a great weekend brother! I went out for some live music on Saturday night and all day on Sunday. Saturday night we went down to the south side of Milwaukee where all the great Mexican restaurants are and had a great meal the saw a fun band called sweet delta dawn. They do a mix of their own tunes and pink Floyd/grateful dead/phish/ect covers. Sunday started early at a local bar. With green beer and vodka, then to the east side of Milwaukee (where the old hippies are concentrated) and saw "thee grateful dub band". They do dead songs with a dubby, reggae twist and are a blast to see and dance to. We had a great time and can't wait to see them again. What I didn't get was any corned beef and cabbage so I'm cooking one today for the wife and I to eat for dinner.
I wiped my bike down today and took it in for service. We had a quick look over and I have already stretched my chain and worn out a set of brake pads. Not bad for only one short season, looks like I'll be going through a chain and set of pads every year, but that tells me that I'm riding her right. After talking to the mechanic that is going to be working on it I decided to go tubeless this too. I will be able to run the low pressure that I like and won't have to worry about pinch flats anymore. He said that my oversized tires work really good without tubes because they are bigger. My rims are already taped off and ready for the conversation so it's just a matter of pulling the tubes and putting the tubeless stems in and adding the slime sealer. When I pick it up it will be better than it was when it was new.
I'm defenatly going to carry a spare tube and tire tools with me on the trail. I have seen those co2 inflators and they sure are nice. I've used them on motorcycle tires but not on bicycles. I carry a small pump in my camelback but it would be nice to have an inflator in there as well.

definitely pick one of thse c02 inflators up if you are going to run tubeless
they arent that expensive, i think i paid like $20 or so for the device and a single cartridge online
the ones that come with it are like the 20g ones but i just buy the cheaper 16g c02 carts ( like you would use for an air gun)
like you said tho, brake pads and a new chain sounds like general upkeep on a bike to me
shows youve been riding! way to go fiddy
did you ever get an odometer for the bike when you first bought it?
how many miles do you think you have on your ride?
hope your week is off to a great start my man!
its been in the 0's here and yesterday we went to a friends of mrsChickys and it was 80'!
felt almost like summer and i am so looking ahead to this year
we have been having a wet winter and its been fun; you know how i love my rain walks
but im ready for shorts and flip flops

Good afternoon pop_rocks.
I will grab an inflator for sure brother. Between that and having the pump and a tube there should be no way to get stranded out there. I'd think that the smaller cartridge should be fine because they are under such high pressure.
I was suprised that the chain was stretched so much but like you said that means I've been riding her a good bit. My guess is that I've got less than a thousand miles on her, possibly just over 500 or so. I am going to get a bike computer with gps this year so I can keep better track of my riding. I tried using an app on my phone last year but it wasn't good about picking up my rout or keeping good track of my rides.
It sounds like you are seeing nice weather already. We are seeing pretty seasonal temps with 40's and 50's during the day and upper 20's and 30's at night. Looks like it's going to,stay dry for us for a few days which should help the cause of thawing and drying the ground. I'm ready for shorts and flip flops too brother.

Update and pics.

Greetings friends.
It's been forever since I did a jungle updates so here goes.

The LBL crosses in flower are doing well. They arnt stretching as much as most of the plants I've grown before and hight will not be an issue this grow. The stems are really thick and strong on these girls. The soil mix and smaller pots seem to be just fine for now.
I lollipoped about half way up the main stalk last week and they seem to be ok with that. It's the farthest I've ever trimmed up the bottom of my plants so far. Here is a couple pics of them.


Next flower cycle will be run #2 of the gorilla bubble. I've got the first round of clones rooted and just in soil a couple days ago. I've got a second round of cuts in the cloner. Whichever are ready when the flower tent has space for them will be the ones I run. I'll be keeping a mom of her around for possable future runs.


I also got seeds popped for a couple runs from now. I soaked 6 cobra lips seeds for 24 hours then put them in straight happy frog soil in little 4" pots. I will be growing clones of these plants once sexed. 6/6 came up so we are off to a good start with these seeds.

wow man, i dont know if you meant for that last pic to be so cool, or ive just been smoking way too much hash but the seedling pic is super trippy
/the reflection off your liner is way cool man!
the c02 inflator also inflates the tire really fast so it sets the bead on a tubeless tire
i hear they have traditional hand pumps that you can pump up and store the energy to create pressure and then release it all at ocne to set the bead but i hear its really hard to inflate a tubeless tire with a traditional hand pump
/ another good reason to carry a spare tube just in case
what type chain are you running?
i like to use kmt chains but there are other good ones too but less than 1000m seems kind of fast
what kind of bike computer are you thinking of getting?
im a big fan of the old school odometers and get one for all of my bikes
have you tried any of the phone apps that track your rides
the mrs has the strava and its kind of neat but you can also get a nice garmon or one of the higher end odometers and they all do the same things
hope you are having a great week brother!
