Cycling Moments

Good morning All,

One of the nice things I did during my holiday was climb the Mont Ventoux ( 1,902m ) on a bicycle,...well...3 kilometres out of 16 at least. The remaining bit, we put the bicycle in the back of the car and drove up to the top. Nononono, it's not cheating, a lot of people did it. Then the fun really started with a downhill of over 20 minutes to the village in the valley, Malaucene. And all those poor guys sweating up the hill ( it was Sunday, packed with cyclists ) looking at me and thinking: Bastard, he already made it to the top... And because it was so much fun, arrived at the bottom, we put the bike in the back of the car again, drove up and Karine this time rushed down. Great, you should try it.

Anyway, welcome back to London, rain, cold, work, etc...I wish you an excellent day ahead


A young executive was leaving the office at 6 p.m. when he found the CEO standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand. "Listen," said the CEO, "this is a very sensitive and important document, and my secretary has left. Can you make this thing work?" "Certainly," said the young executive. He turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button. "Excellent, excellent!" said the CEO as his paper disappeared inside the machine. "I just need one copy."
