A visit from Ute...

On Saturday we were visited by Ute and her family. Ute has been a friend of Christine since they went to college together. Her husband, Axel, is a major in the German Air Force. Axel was stationed around Norwich, England for a few years and now he is stationed around Maastricht in the Netherlands on a N.A.T.O. assignment.


Tour de France

Alberto Contador from the Discovery Channel Team won the 2007 Tour de France on July 29th. The 24 year old joins another famous Spaniard, Miguel Indurain, who won the Tour from 1991-1995. Alberto was expected by many tour followers after Michael Rasmussen was ousted from the Tour 5 days before the end of the race. I just wonder if people will forget all the talk about doping in this year's race. Will the grand race ever be able to get beyond all the doping. Only the future knows.


I'm sure that most of you have heard of Youtube or even have been at their site by now. I have posted several videos and slide shows at the dcheronfamily channel. Pachelbel Rant is from comedian Rob Paravonian, who does a funny bit about how this one piece of music seems to haunt him throughout his life. If you're a fan of Monty Python and Star Wars, you might enjoy this one. If you're a fan of 24, you might enjoy this clip of catch phrases. Here are some Simpsons 24 parodies one of the show, Previously on the Simpsons, and Simpsons promo 24 style. I heard Bertone play a clip of Bush speaking a version of Imagine, a famous John Lennon song. The clip that I linked to here isn't what he played, but you can find many different clips if you search "George W Bush and Imagine" at YouTube. Here is a clip from the Bush blopper reals and one from more humorous sound bites.
