Stan Gurney VC Memorial Criterium
Midland Cycle Club
Open D grade
25 April 2014

I rode this race last year, it was a tight circuit with two hotdog turns.

I avoided him, lost all momentum and finished at the back of the second group.

However, it will not replace that memory hog Firefox 3.1 as my main browser. As the Web Developer Toolbar and Firebug are the tools of my […]

I got tagged by Ben Winter-Giles with 8 things meme, probably in revenge ;-) for my introduction of him at Web Directions South 07.

Here are eight things you probably didn’t know about me:

Twitter did not suck the blogging from me

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

While Molly blames Twitter for her lack of blogging and Mark life, the reason for my lack of blogging of the past few weeks can be attributed to the new train and my desire to get back to a reasonable level of fitness…

Normal services will resume shortly

Hopefully things should return to a version of normal this week. Angie has been out of hospital for a week now and I have been adjusting to my new role as chief teamaker and preparer of soft boiled eggs and soldiers…

Frustration is

Seeing someone you love, in pain lying in bed with tubes coming out of them and not being able to do anything.
