Lots can happen in a week

Rather a different mood prevailing to that of a week ago...

So soon the euphoria of the Tour de France evapourated as the fog of doping descended. Now, our hero winner stands accused of cheating; with little prospect of the verdict being overturned. Who's telling the truth? Will we ever know? Right now it seems we never will know who was honest and who was not. A sad time to be a cycling fan. :-(

On the food front, we had a cracking coleslaw with our barbecued chicken on Saturday night. I got so keen on writing up the recipe for the dish that it became the debut entry in a whole new section of Nightwol's Perch.

Busy, busy weekend

Whew! Seem to have had a crowded couple of days. Stayed up all night Friday Night/Saturday Morning talking with family in New York on Skype, which threw the body clock completely out of whack for the next 48 hours.

Daytimes were filled with TV images of the last two days of the Tour de France. OK, so an American won again but a more different race to those we've endured the last few years would be hard to imagine. Having tipped Floyd for the Tour from the start of the season, I was especially pleased that he managed to pull off the win. Just a shame he's not on my fantasy team!

Zuba still rule the stereo after we saw them again LAST weekend in Cambridge and bough their album "Allez" from them after the show.
