watching the Tour from the 3rd CornerEncinitas sunset - on an beautiful evening...Whew, a long bad day today; many meetings and much to do.  And at the end I am left feeling I made no progress :)  But the good news was that I was able to get in a great ride tonight - beautiful evening, rode down the coast with the sun setting over the Pacific - and then retired to the 3rd Corner, my sanctuary, and enjoyed watching the Tour on my laptop via Slingbox to Tivo, while enjoying a great cheese plate and a nice Pinot.  And then, blogging...

The White House, the House, and the impact of a majority in the balance.  "Democrats are being forced into a process conversation about whether or not their majority is in jeopardy -- a conversation that the House leadership did their damnedest to avoid by adopting a concerted strategy not to mention publicly the idea that control was at stake in the fall."  Even the threat of losing their majority is causing Democrats to act as if they don't have one - and this is a good thing.

Yay: Nuclear power could see a revival.  I honestly think in the long run this is our only way out.  You see the BP Gulf spill disaster and you just know fossil fuels cannot be the future of our civilization.  Onward!

Andrew Grumet is a sucker for a good pun :)
