Yup, photos!! Discovery Channel Team in motion… By the way, if you haven’t been following the Tour, which ended today, Alberto Contador WON the race. And he races for Discovery. He’s in Yellow two photos from now. Keep looking. They were cruising – probably around 40KMH. I can’t do the math, but it’s fast. Here […]

I’m not sure if this is just an idiosincracy of mine or if more people feel this way, but I often set my vacation goals up in tiny lists. They’re not firm ‘to-do’ mandates, but they are guides that ensure that I have something to do. Perhaps this list-making tendency is part of my inability […]
