I spent part of today listening to the time trials in Solvang while cleaning the turtles' tank in the kitchen, and then when they got to the last riders I stood in front of this monitor where an Adobe Flash Player broadcast the Amgen ToC, LIVE!, and it was really exciting to see if Levi would hold onto his yellow jersey. And he smoked 'em.
You go, Levi!
Hercules, my box turtle, is still underground. That's either Fred-1 or Fred-2 in the photo above, taken with my new p&s camera, hand held at 1/13 sec., no flash. The Freds, western painted pond turtles, spend all their time under the warm basking light - or begging to be fed.
