The Madam was very upset about this and asked: 'Now Maria, why do you want
an increase?'

Maria: 'Well Madam, there are three reasons why I want an increase. The
first is that I iron better than you.'

Madam: 'Who said you iron better than me?'

Maria: 'The Master said so.'

Madam: 'Oh.'

Maria: 'The second reason is that I am a better cook than you.'

Madam: 'Nonsense, who said you were a better cook than I?'

Maria: 'The Master did.'

Madam: 'Oh.'

Maria: 'My third reason is that I am a better lover than you.'

Madam (very upset now): 'Did the Master say so as well?'

Maria: 'No Madam, the gardener did.'

...Maria got her raise~

Hi all! I just wanted to let you all know that TBV just posted our 1,000th blog entry this AM. I want to thank those of you who also participate over on TBV. We couldn't do it without all of your support and input, no matter what side of the "Landis fence" you are on. Thanks to you!!

Paula (strbuk)


Congratulations on your 1000th post, and thanks again for all you do. I still read TBV almost every day. BTW, I'm the person who interviewed you in Lancaster. Unfortunately, my professor didn't think TBV was as fascinating as I do, so the article never got written. But it was fun to meet you anyway :)

Thanks Larry, I need some giggling today. One of those heavy work days.

And Paula, congrats to all at TBV & thanks so much for ALL the work! I'd write a comment there but don't want to set up an acct. (Any way it can go back to allowing 'anonymous' comments?). If you all ever do stop that site, I don't know what I'll do! I go there EVERY day, several times a day sometimes, to see what's happening not just with & about Floyd but all of doping in cycling & even other sports. It really is a marvelous site & I want you all to keep going even after Floyd's case is decided by CAS. Doing the same thing you are now, but maybe a bigger scope : a blog & main stream media "News & Report" for all of cycling. None of the main cycling websites do that. Or you can keep it just focused on Doping in Sports. PLEEEEEEZE.

Personally, I would LOVE an Olympic version - where blog posts & msm articles about this year's Olympics would be gathered, linked, & chatted about. Both before & during the Games themselves. Clearinghouse is not the right word. It's more like a "Gathering Place" - where people "virtually" gather & where the news & other interesting bits are gathered FOR them to peruse & chat about. It could be called 'TOP' for 'The Olympic Place'. And yes, if I did have a clone, that's what my clone would be doing. :) Well, that & running all my erands, cleaning my house, & causing mischief for people who've ticked "the original" off... ;)

And my company has blocked access to YouTube since last April but I did see that Lance 't-shirt' commerical during one of the Bowl Games. It was a hoot. Hopefully, I'll see the other one soon. What happens in it?


Good one Mr Maxwell! (Glad you aren't hibernating like you said....)

Thank you Sara for the links to the ads; too funny. Oddly enough, it restored some of my feelings towards the old guy. Don't get me wrong, I always respected his accomplishments, but he seemed to have lost his sense of humor for a while, which tempered his arrogance, single mindedness, and inability to hang on to a good woman...somewhat. Seriously though, they are really good ads.


Hilarious ads :-) Thanks for posting those.


those lance videos are fantastic
