April Runs

… hikes, kickbikes, skis and more

JUD11 – Spinning…

Tonight I decided it was time to change the type of exercise a bit and to substitute running for once. I went to the basement for some spinning instead. The real reason was that I felt like watching old movies and that is much easier when spinning than when running. I downloaded a 40 years old semi-classic Czech comedy ‘Leto s kovbojem’ and off I went.

Emma is sick again, I think she caught cold at the lake last weekend. Which brings me to the botanical topic again. One powerful natural antibiotics is the Isländisches Moos (Cetraria islandica) or Island moss. It is actually not a moss but a lichen but it does look like moss:
