Another steed in the stable means it's time to cull the heard. Watch for some local horse trading coming soon.

The map to the left shows how close some were to all the action and how lucky we were.

I'll be keepin my ear to the phone and eye on the interwebs, hoping the 60 mph winds decide to give the fire fighters and family a break.

- Reinforcing mesh is a polypropelene material
- Surgical staples are titanium corkscrews, about 1/8" long. I have 8.
- I had hernias on both sides and both were repaired
- Bellybuttons get glued by accident, "it's not a cult thing"
You can ride your bike but I wouldn't do anything CRAZY and climb Mt. Tam for your first ride.

Saw this add on CNBC yesterday...check it out if you haven't seen it yet. Made me pause.
Just finished reading Floyd's book. It was an entertaining quick read. If you've followed the case you won't learn much. There are some funny stories about Floyd's early career and some glimpses of the behind the scenes culture of pro cycling (not all flattering). The book probably won't change any minds but I found it entertaining.
This gem just came in the mail yesterday (Finally used that gift certificate...thanks Mom). It's a perfect addition to our growing bike nerd library. Chock full of great photos, stories and bios that put the the race and its history in perspective. It'll be fun to pick up and thumb through over and over.

At least I won't be doing this!
I'm a little nervous (I had one Braveheart execution nightmare), first surgery and all but I'll be glad when it's done and I've recovered. I've been told my hernia is 'very small' but it still finds a way to make me uncomfortable on occassion. So, Doc's going in to put things back where they belong and do a little seismic retrofit. Looking forward to having the GI back on track.
