Boycott Restaurants That Serve Shark Fin Soup - Take Action!
Stop serving shark fin soup! In 2006, Dr. Shelley Clarke's analysis of shark fin markets in Hong Kong estimated that upwards of 73 MILLION sharks are being killed each year for the barbaric shark fin trade. By now, over 100 MILLION sharks are brutally killed every year.
Sharks are captured live, their fins are brutally cut off and they are dumped back in the ocean to slowly die. This is cruel and inhumane! Sharks are vital to maintaining balance in our oceans, and the unsustainable trade in shark fins is driving many shark species to the brink of extinction.
You are participating in the destruction of the ocean and the extinction of a valuable species. Please stop serving shark fin soup and remove this item from your menu.
Go to Yelp and write a review asking for a boycott. Here is what I write:
No stars if I could... Boycott this place! It has shark fin soup on the menu. Over 100 million sharks are brutally killed every year for a crappy bowl of soup. Sharks are captured alive, their fins are cut off and they are dumped back in the ocean to die a slow death. Restaurants that serve shark fin soup suck...

And what about the Saxo Bank wrenches? Gave Breschel the wrong bike, after he waited forever for the change. He ended up riding O'Grady's bike! Was he pissed or what....

Subject: Appeal No. A-6-LJS-10-09, Rope Barrier Appeal Hearing on March 10, 2010
To: California Coastal Commissioners,
I am writing in support of maintaining the rope barrier at Casa Beach that allows the La Jolla Seals to be undisturbed and separated from the public. By maintaining the rope barrier, the seals are protected, the public is at a safe distance, and residents/tourists/childre
The pups are fragile and the mothers are easily frightened. These innocent harbor seals deserve our protection at Casa Beach, just as they are protected in other rookeries along the coastline. The publ;ic does not unduly suffer by being separated from the beach rookeries in Pacific Grove, or along the 17-Mile Drive, or near Hopkins Marine Lab, and these are also high use areas. Harbor seal rookeries are protected at Pt. Reyes, another public high-use area.
Please support the staff's recommendation that the rope barrier stay up during pupping season and that no persons should step over the rope barrier during pupping season. Furthermore, I support that the rope barrier should be maintained all year long.
Thank you for making a decision that will affect the survival of a precious species for all our future.

Note to Versus: Bag that moronic gal who pesters the team guys with her not funny, not clever interviews. Her segment today with Mavic was pathetic and idiotic. I know darn well what the team guys say after she and the cameras leave.

... Wind Advisory is now in effect until 4 PM PST this afternoon for the central and southern Sacramento Valley... Delta... northern San Joaquin Valley and Motherlode. A strong Pacific frontal system moving through northern California has brought strong southerly winds to the region. Southerly winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 mph will be possible today as the cold front moves slowly eastward across the area. Winds are expected to decrease by late this afternoon... but may increaseagain later tonight. Motorists (...and cyclists?)are advised to exercise caution and allow extra time toreach your destination.

My good friend, Andy Anderson, posted this on the caringbridge http://tinyurl.com/cxwyw guestbook:
Farewell Brother Jim !
We will not stand at your grave and weep;
You are not there. You do not sleep.
You live in the thousand winds that blow,
Tailwinds that help the cyclists go
Uphill and down, with cries of ‘No Chain!’
The toughest of rides, without any pain.
You’re riding round Heaven with Martha and Scott
And Lori and Damon – the C.C.C. lot!
You circle the clouds, and you never feel pain,
For the bikes that you ride, use wings, not a chain!
You live in the sunlight on ripened grain.
You live in the gentle autumn rain.
You live in the ‘whooooooooooosh’ of tyres on tar
As a peloton passes, a colourful blur,
So, we will not stand at your grave and cry;
You are not there. You did not die.
You live in our hearts, and for you we give thanks,
‘Tis we who are the blessed, for you rode in our ranks,
No matter at all we don’t share a mother
For ours is the honour to call you - our brother !
Farewell, Brother Jim, you’ve shown us the way to truly LiveSTRONG. You’ve been a shining example of courage and grace in adversity, of good humour in the hours of darkness; an example we can but feebly try to emulate if that be our lot, though I doubt we could achieve the high standard you have set.
You may have gone from our sight, but you will live long in our hearts – it was not for nothing that we love you – our friend and our brother.
[Based on ‘Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep’]
