Happy Saturday

Well Cats and Kittens... I'm back from GITAP, a lovely little week long bike ride from State park to State park in Illinois. The highlight of the trip was the 60+ mph thunder storm that roared through camp last night. Woo Hoo! The tent stayed up and dry despite me having it pitched 180 degrees out of phase with respect to the the storm. I feel good.

Then it was drive Vito's van home and then dash over to the Healthy Living Fair, where I was part of Tapas Yoga Shala's demo. We basically did a scaled down class for the demo. Practicing under a tent, in the the heat, with an audience. Fun Fun Fun...

Tonight's Guitar Madness is dedicated to yesterday's t-storm. I was listening to this as I was flat on my back in the tent as it was raging... Ronnie Baker Brooks: Born In Chicago. I've seen his dad a couple of times and now I need to see him...

Convicts Of The Road

Ah... The Convicts of the Road. In the 1920s, a reporter coined the term "Convicts of the Road" to describe the racers in the Tour de France. It seems things have come around.... A group of 196 French prisoners and 124 guards are having their own little Tour de Penitentiaire. I hear that you really do get "bonus time" for breakaways and escapes.

Read about it here

I wonder where I can get one of those jerseys...

Pearls Before Swine was pretty funny today. Here it is:
