Day II in Amsterdam - I journeyed to Drenthe, in the Northeast of the Netherlands, for a brunch / family renunion / birthday celebration for my Mom (75), and two of her cousins (75 and 80). We talked and ate all day; it was great. Best part was describing my family twenty times in a row :)
The Giro has begun, and Christian Vandevelde of Slipstream is in the maglia rosa! Congratulations to Slipstream; last year they were a step below the Pro Tour, this year they've clearly made it to the top echelon of the sport... it will be interesting to see how they do over the next three weeks, they do not really have a GC contender but do have many riders who can win stages. And clearly they have a good team!
Carlustblog remembers the Porsche 928. "The 928 was a fantastic car that helped define the sports GT category, marrying supercar performance with comfort and everyday practicality. The 928 had such an embarrassment of ability that it captured the imagination." It certainly captured mine; since being a teenager I always wanted one, and then, when I was 32 and finally able to afford one, I almost bought one. I came this close -> <- but ended up buying a then-brand-new Lexus SC400 instead. (I never regretted the Lexus - it was a great car - but I do sometimes wonder how much fun it would have been to have a 928.) [ via Instapundit ]
