I must admit, this is a great benefit to being laid off: Getting to watch the live Tour coverage every day. Had a job I no longer enjoyed and got to leave with a nice severance package.... Might as well enjoy the Tour. And by the way, how 'bout those metal detector commercials on OLN? They're so bad they almost seem like a Saturday Night Live skit! When aired during the TDF it only ups the comic factor of this since it's SO out of context!

The weather's nice so I'm watching OLN all morning then going for long rides in the afternoon. Should be able to do the 110 mile round trip up to Bear Mtn sometime in August if I keep at it.

Then hopefully by the time my meager package & nice weather runs out, things will pick up.

life is too short to spend it locked in a cubicle working for the money you probably never needed anyways.
Anyone who is lucky enough to appreciate the sport of cycling while spending some time cycling himself is worth my respect.
