Escaped from your drafts folder?  :)

No, no. Just getting it out of the way while I have time. California coincides with the first week of the Giro and although by sheer coincidence I'm on holiday for that, I might not be too inclined to do the donkey work then.

On a more serious note, one which I deliberately didn't really mention in the first post, is that it is ten years since the earthquake in the region which claimed over 300 lives.

308 dead
1500 injured
65000 homeless

I'm sure the organizers will have some ceremony on the day to remember the event and the lives lost.
