It is 10 in the day and I am going to push ahead and work one more hour to try as well as knock out most of these articles for the day, so when I come home after that bike ride I can have an easy afternoon. I have to do something about the brakes on this bike of mine because they are particularly rusted out from the salt air of the sea and need to be replaced. I found them online for $20 for both front and back calipers, which is a good price and will be tough to beat. Local companies here have a lot of items as well as maybe I can find them here, as the local supplier friend of mine told me. If there isn’t a lot more money at the local shop after that I will buy them here to support my neighbors. The cooling contractor near me has a ton of A/C and heating supplies that are about the same price as you can find them online. I bet that soon they will find a way to match the online prices in all of these stores so that we don’t have to buy online anymore. If I could buy a heat pump or a smart thermostat here for the same price as the online cooling store then it would be particularly convenient for me. I will go to the bike shop in 45 minutes with some money and hopefully leave with two current brake calipers so I don’t mow down some kid, but go clean that washable filter of yours.
