Christmas in July for Facebook. This $5 billion fine levied by the FTC is embarrassing. Way too small.
OK this was the most boring stage of the race as of yet. As in nothing happened. Dylan Groenewegen won the final sprint so good for him after the crash on day 1. But that was it. Why did I watch this again?
See that long screenshot off to the left there? That’s the full preset filter list (thanks Tailor!) for the VSCO camera app on iOS. I’m a total camera app junkie. I have tons of them and generally buy most in-app purchases in them (think I have all of the films/lenses/flashes they’ve offered in Hipstamatic sinceContinue reading “VSCO and Hipstamatic: Too many preset options?”
Holy cow what a stage! Inclines of 20% and 24% at the end of the course today in La Planche des Belles Filles. Not the first time the Tour has ended here but the old course ended after the 20% section. This year they added on some dirt road for good measure and that wasContinue reading “Tour de France Stage 6 – 24% anyone?”
Well, Peter Sagan won the stage today in a no-questions fashion by blowing everyone else out of the water in the final sprint. Other than that a pretty uneventful stage. The big one is tomorrow with the first mountain stage. Alaphilippe kept the yellow jersey today but not likely tomorrow.

Love this from Craig Mod in the latest Ridgeline newsletter: All said and done, I believe in the systems. Find small ways to set yourself up for incremental success. Make the positive habits inevitable. Word after word. Step after step.
Tour day 4 wasn’t all that exciting. Sprint finish with Viviani winning and Quickstep keeping the yellow. Peter Sagan up at the front but not close enough. Green jersey is great and all but the guy needs to get some stage wins and there won’t be many opportunities for him this year. The most amusingContinue reading “Tour de France Stage 4 – Sagan better get moving”
I spent 45 minutes after I got home today out in the garden area pulling weeds. It seems odd to say but there is a certain primal satisfaction for me pulling weeds. No music. No noise. It’s a calming thing to do. The odd thing was my reaction upon smelling someone’s dinner cooking on theContinue reading “On pulling weeds”
