rugby report

In my excitement of the videos, I forgot my rugby report Gill. Sat up late - watched the Tour de France - we really enjoyed seeing Mont Ventoux - we have been up and down it a couple of times (no - not on bikes) but once when it was closed if you didn't have chains we simply pretended we couldn't read French and drove carefully. It is a wonderful mountain - like a moonscape. We were able to say many times - been there - driven through that town, looked in that church etc etc.

More importantly - the All Blacks lost last night in South Africa. Thought they were going to get there okay but then that silly throw which gave the Springbox another try, spoilt it all. Stephen Donald played very well. Next week, boys.... So if you come to the show on Sunday know that we will have stayed up until 1am....

I hope the All Blacks know what keen supporters you are and appreciate your sacrifices! I have learned that I risk heart failure if I get too interested in sporting events! No wonder team managers are always seen chewing gum like mad and looking stressed!

Dale,

Sorry your All Blacks lost,watching the climb to summit of Mont Ventoux was the only night I stayed up to watch the whole sector of any of the races just had to see the end of that one.
