Another option is to heat your oven to 200F and put a rack on a large sheet pan in the middle level. As you fry your latkes in batches (before people arrive), put the finished ones in the oven on the rack.
This keeps them hot and crispy on the outside, but still tender and warm on the inside.

@11 is on the right track. Many bike shops will tilt the saddle up or level, and it's much more comfortable for women to have it down a bit - so your weight is on your "sit bones" instead of your crotch resting on the nose of the saddle.
Also, use a bike short lubricant (e.g., Chamois Butt'r) for every ride. Bike shorts should be clean (only wear them on one ride before washing) and wear nothing between your body and the bike shorts.

I think it's a one pound minimum for cheese at PFI, except they waive that for the more expensive cheeses...

these delivery/pickup drivers know that even if you phone the non-emergency number the cops don't take it seriously (I know, because I've called this in many times), and even if they do send someone - they won't get there until after the truck is gone. The drivers don't care, and their companies don't care because they'd rather pay a rare ticket than have the driver take the time to park legally.
