6s off a PR on the Aspin today. Think I could have taken those seconds with a sprint if it wasn't so busy up here! wink

11:43

Lots of fun at the TdF today, a highlight is meeting Didi The Devil just before the Aspin climb. What a character! grin

08:45

Breakie by the pool - well, the first course at least wink Fresh eggs straight from the chicken coup. Yum!

19:21

Ever been so hot & thirsty you'd lay in a muddy puddle & drink from it? What chasing deer for hours does to dogs! wink

19:00

Walking in tall grass didn't know a deer was hiding here. He jumped up & ran as I got too close (2m or so). Amazing!!

18:56

Just out wonder in the hills. Lovely evening for it smile

12:54

Today's ride: Something short & sweet. Saving myself for tomorrow wink

21:41

What's with the colour of this Portugal strip? Looks like they're playing in hospital scrubs! #Hideous

19:13

So years later Chilcot report finds what any sane person could see as obvious at the time: Blair & Bush are warmongering liars! #Disgraceful

15:32

3 flats today & 1 spare tube. Luckily tons of #TdF fans already along road here happy to give a tube to get you home! grin #LoveRidingInFrance

14:58

Just back from cycling & served up this pre-lunch snack from my favourite warung kecil. Great recovery dish. Nom! tongue

12:35

Unlucky with a couple of punctures today, but I suppose there are worse places to have to fix one. Won't complain smile

12:31

Bit of a traffic jam out riding today. Well, traffic of the bovine kind wink Glorious day up the Hourquette & Aspin! smile

17:55

Walkies at Col des Palomières. View behind to the North as you can't see the mountains to the South from here. Doh!

14:23

Bit hungover so easy spin up the Tourmalet as a cure. Only 46s behind PR. Maybe drinks the eve. before not all bad wink

08:54

Out in the woods next to 'home' with the dogs. One is too shy for photos, the other clearly an attention seeker! wink

19:10

Folks here are so generous. Another invite for roast dinner with Yorkshire puds & a nice drop of red. Yum! tongue Thx! grin

17:07

Headline writers: Political back stabbing is normal. Is not news. Get back to us when the bunch of cocks announce they have an actual plan!

23:16

Roy Hodgson faces media but says: "I don’t really know what I am doing here" Bit like last night then! cry

14:06

Almost 60% of UK car exports go to EU & only 20% of German car exports go to UK. So @Nigel_Farage tell me again who tariffs will hurt more?

09:57

News pundit: "The most inept, humiliating display" At this point can't tell if he's talking about #Brexit or #Euro2016! cry #LittleBritain

09:03

David, in Brussels today, if they offer you a 'new' kind of beer/chocolate make sure it's not called 'article 50'. That's only for Boris wink

00:06

Well... I can't wait to see what happens at Wimbledon now! wink

20:32

So... Has anyone got any opinions about England vs Iceland tonight? wink

18:07

System I inherited has a 1-many table (2 cols) to join stuff. But instead of multiple rows it has CSV string in a single row! #Facepalm cry

14:52

Drove up to Payolle for a stroll & ended up parking in the clouds. Still lovely, if a little chilly for summer!

12:30

Drove up the Hourquette d'Ancizan. Opened the door to some new friends wink Misty but the change makes it interesting.

11:20

This looks interesting. Maybe it's beer with a hint of bacon? wink

11:06

Tiny supermarket in Bagnères-de-Bigorre has nice select of local cheeses. Love taking random chunks from here. Yum!

21:59

#Brexit result will bring much 'entertainment' for years to come. This tale of monumental stupidity just the start! https://t.co/005ngP15bf

14:48

Type, "Farage 350" into any news search engine. I see stories in English, Dutch, German, Spanish, etc. UK is a global laughing stock! sad cry

08:54

My social network is full of posts of disgust at #Brexit (with just 1 exception). So glad for sensible friends & today, a 2nd passport! sad

10:32

Spectacular day in the Pyrenees. Col d'Aspin, Arreau, Hourquette d'Ancizan, Sarrat de Gaye. Lazy 2000m of climbing wink

02:18

#Brexit... Thank fu&k it's almost over!!! So here's some comedy to finish things off:
https://youtu.be/iAgKHSNqxa8

20:11

Our butter dish (or what passes for one in the snail). Might have been a bit warm today wink

12:11

To change sides is OK. It's that Boris's motive is completely self serving & nothing to do with what he knows to be best for the UK. #Brexit

12:00

Boris Johnson,  Feb '16: "real problems of this country, low skills, low social mobility, low investment etc have nothing to do with Europe"

18:42

Just ate a whole baguette and, like, half kilo of blue cheese. I invite anyone in bio-weapons research to come visit in a few hours! wink grin

10:04

I'll forgive and forget If you say you'll never go 'Cos its true what they say It's better the devil you know Wohoo #Brexit @kylieminogue wink

19:11

Last day of spring evening ride with my beautiful - if a little slow... ahem! tongue - riding partner. Niiiice! smile grin

"Countries usually don’t knowingly commit economic suicide... Leaving the EU would be an act of national insanity"! https://www.washingtonpost.com/o...

21:37

#Brexit fact: UK donates more to charity than EU costs it! Why would such a generous nation turn it's back on less fortunate neighbours?

11:28

UK markets & pound plunge on mere suggestion #Brexit Leave may win. Imagine hit to pension funds & cost of living if it actually happens!

11:24

Dear web crawler devs: if you can't play nice, you will be banned. Please play nice, I've got better things to do! sad

21:34

Evening 'snack'. Nom, nom, nom... tongue

12:38

When you drop round to friends for lunch... and are served a four course gourmet meal! Nom, nom, nom tongue Thank you! smile

12:25

Helping friends collect cherries from this beautiful tree in their yard. Yuuuuuum! tongue

11:56

Fresh baguette delivery in France. Bread here is seldom wrapped & clearly throwing it in an old pipe isn't an issue!

15:14

Salt on jersey is normal but I took ass-sweat to whole new level today wink 100km Tourmalet loop & still 30° at 1700m!
