The plumber was here this morning at 7:00 AM! Seven. In the morning. But he was a total babe, so it was okay. He fixed the major leak, but found another smaller leak in the larger, common pipe, so he'll have to come back for a more extensive visit. I can live with that.
What do these words have in common?
I'm trying to make reservations at the guest house for the Outriders ride this year. So far no one is answering the phone.
Got a sad note from MediaZone.com yesterday:

Thank you for contacting MediaZone Billing and Technical Support!
To the best of our knowledge we will not be broadcasting the Giro d’Italia this year.

BUT! I logged into cycling.tv this morning and found that OLN will be broadcasting the Giro there, live, starting May 6. Cycling.tv’s new layout is a bit confusing, so when you get there, click the OLN tab at the bottom, then click "Switch".
The down side is it’s $19.99, which is a bit pricey considering last year it was $5.00. Still, 20 for a three-week stage race isn’t so bad, I guess. Especially since this year it promises to be a good one. Still, 20 for a three week pay-per-view event isn't so bad, I'll probably spring for it.
Cycling.tv has a new premium channel they’re using to broadcast all the spring races live. It’s only $20 for the year. At least they’re keeping a lot of the free content as well.
