My good friends Doug and Cathy are doing a 24 hour blogaathon to raise money for STAR, the riding facility for children with disabilities - check them out - and support them if you feel so inclined.
They have a couple of webcams streaming from their house.

Wow, what a crash!

The commentators, Phil and Paul were just commenting on how dangerous this downhill was when 2 riders, Michael Rogers (an Aussie) & Arroyo came together & into a barrier & one went over the edge.
They are ok fortunately. Arrogo larded in a tree. Rogers lost some time as his bike needed replacing.

Happiness is...

Big projector screen-surround sound, lazy boy chair, Tour de France.
oh, & a tablet PC and a wireless internet connection.
l am lazing in my chair, sipping my drink while watching the tour. Today is a massive climb. It's the étape 8 - Le Grand-Bornand Tignes 165 km stage. I am really enjoying the four this year. since we got the Tr aerial properly tuned in we can watch SBS, our premier channel for Soccer and the tour de France.

Having just bought a new tablet Pc, I am enjoying learning how to make it work well. I wrote this entire blog post using the handwriting technique on the screen of the laptop.

The other thing I had fun trying today was the voice recognition feature in Vista. I was able to train my PC to listen to my voice & do as I told it to do today.

At the moment I am watching the leaders on the first major Category I climb of the day. There is a frenetic pace being set.

The greet they about the internet today is being able to check real time the actual time differences between the groups on the Mountain using the Tour de France website.

Anyway - we had a great night and forged some new relationships. I missed photos of two people unfortunately but have the rest here.
