Ok – A Quickie…

Tonight (day) might be The Night (The Day) one of MY countrymen does what no other Aussie has ever managed to do despite them trying for close to a century now.

Something American Lance Armstrong did on his own a record breaking Seven Times (albeit under a cloud of mostly unproven drug taking claims). That he did so with the help of seven or eight team-mates each time in NO way under-values the incredible feat he achieved – especially considering it was done after recovering from testicular cancer! (OW!)

Tonight (Day) an Aussie by the name of Cadel Evans might just go one better than his second place finish last year and WIN Major Modern Sports most grueling endurance feat…

The Tour de France.

The world of cycling’s greatest and most prestigous challenge of abilities across a wide range of cycling endeavours – sprints, mountain climbs and sheer stamina and determination. Speeds of over 60 MPH are achieved, crashes are common and even death occurs. 21 days of bravery and skill.

In terms of spectators present it is the single greatest annual sporting event.

It ends Sunday so, if you get the chance, see what all the fuss is about – even if it is only the highlights on the news.

GO Cadel !!!

    But OURS if THE power OF life – the ‘spark’ – the seed it needs to become ‘living’ – of the Father….given to all from the Male.

  9. you’re useing bad words on this here blog we call Love!
    growing up, we called those “parts” the “peeper”. Why? I don’t know. However, I was seriously traumatized when Bill Cosby was on Picture Pages and started to sing “Jeepers, Creepers, where’d you get those peepers?”
    I was 6 and thought I was going to DIE!

  10. So Love, the question still remains what kind of “spark” we are speaking of. According to Webster it could be:

    “flicker: a momentary flash of light
    sparkle: merriment expressed by a brightness or gleam or animation of countenance; “he had a sparkle in his eye”; “there’s a perpetual twinkle in his eyes”
    discharge: electrical conduction through a gas in an applied electric field
    a small but noticeable trace of some quality that might become stronger; “a spark of interest”; “a spark of decency”
    Scottish writer of satirical novels (born in 1918 )
    trip: put in motion or move to act; “trigger a reaction”; “actuate the circuits”
    a small fragment of a burning substance thrown out by burning material or by friction
    emit or produce sparks; “A high tension wire, brought down by a storm, can continue to spark”

    Besides, once the V power kicks on, the Ever-ready bunny pales in comparison…. πŸ˜‰

  11. Ahhhh bad – thank you for restoring a little ‘normalcy’ to this post and comments.

    Actually i have not been going so well – feeling off-colour – from about the time Cadel got Second place overall in the Race so this is NOT the post on Lust – it is still only half done.

    i can see why you were wondering though.

    Ric – Congratulations! the better TEAM certainly won… i AM waiting on the results of the latest scientific drug testing though – considering the ‘results’ of previous winners of the tour there is a very good chance my boy could still win πŸ™‚

  12. Deb, re: Spark… i’m going for THIS one: ‘a small but noticeable trace of some quality that might become stronger; β€œa spark of interest”; β€œa spark of decency” but i do also quite take a shining to: ‘a small fragment of a burning substance thrown out by burning material or by friction’ …

    and i REELY don’t think V-power and ever ready batteries should be included in the same sentence on this ( or indeed any other ) blog 😳

    Not while impressionable youngsters like Ric and Mandy are watchin anyway! πŸ˜‰
