"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

never a dull moment

It's been an interesting past 2 days of the Tour.
They're out of the Pyrenees and on their way to the Alps.

Highlights from the past 2 days include:
- a hold up due to a publicity banner that fell on the riders
- beautiful sprint finishes
- a successful breakaway
- Paul Sherwin speaking in Swahili
- learning that their jerseys can hold up to seventeen water bottles
- via www. "Benoit Vaugrenard was forced to try and avoid a Yorkshire Terrier that ran onto the road. The bad news: he couldn’t. The rider is okay. The same cannot be said for the animal and its distraught owner."
- a man ran along side the riders wearing a hat donning three foot tall antlers while waving the American flag {only an American.}
