Re: “Mountain Riding

A lot of things have changed in those twelve years, and a lot of things have stayed the same.we all rode 26 inch mountain bikes with bar ends and a whopping 60mm of front suspension. Tubeless tyres didn’t yet exist, and the best lights money could buy lasted 3 hours, weighed a tonne, and produced a measly puddle of golden yellow light. Thankfully, they’re all a thing of the past, unlike Wikus’s PA system, the sosaties at check point 3, and the usual pre-race banter about the condition on the kloof. Best Mountain Bike Under : $500

Re: “Boise Weekly's 12th Annual Coldest Beer

Unfortunately, it looks like BW took Ajax's advice since they didn't post anything for 2014. I agree temperature is not the judge, but the list of venues and links to their websites was good for review.

Re: “Swing by a Sugar Shack

So in a "Sugar Shack" blog you've got some place selling Olive Oil and fail the mention the Chocolate Bar.

That, right there, is Statesman level reporting folks. You can do better!

Re: “Essay: Blood Relations

I can't recall a single region in Spain, be it as far from my native Basque Country as the Canary Islands, without Morcilla and Chorizo.

Some info in the Wikipedia:

I'm glad you can enjoy this specialty of the traditional Spanish cuisine. Zorionak! (Congratulations!)

Re: “Essay: Blood Relations

Morcilla is not Basque at all. What makes you write that?? Not even the chorizo.

Re: “Boise Weekly's Bar and Restaurant Guide 2015

A listicle is a composite of a "list" and an "article." It is somewhat akin to a testicle, which is an article about tests.

Re: “Boise Weekly's Bar and Restaurant Guide 2015

BTW, what exactly is a "listicle". A list of popsicles? Sorry, I'm old.

Re: “Boise Weekly's Bar and Restaurant Guide 2015

I really enjoyed this year's edition! I thought I was pretty knowledgeable about Boise dining, but after leafing through this, I realized I have so much to explore - which is a great thing! Thanks for all the helpful hits. I wish any new Boise resident got this in their mailbox. I especially enjoyed reading about the Boise International Market, and notably, the best happy hours. What a great publication encompassing all parts of the Treasure Valley! (And thanks for keeping it local!)

Re: “On Hot Dogs, Bayes' Theorum and a Good Ear

Substitute education reform in place of health care reform. Today's teachers are expected to document more and have little discretion in teaching. Both the quality of health care and the quality of education will suffer. However the medical-industrial complex and the educational-industrial complex will do just fine as there is gold in those tests!

Re: “All Creatures Great, Small and Expensive

One question to always ask is "what will we do with these results" when it comes to tests. Our obese cat lost weight on a prescription diet, but were concerned when he continued to lose weight. The vet tech suggested blood work for about $150 to $200 to check his kidneys. When I asked what we would do if he had kidney failure, the main thing was changing food, so we just did that. He seems fine now. This advice goes for people also. As an RN, I find many tests are done to rule out very unlikely possible diagnoses, or for diagnosis only when it won't change the treatment.
