The Sea Was Angry This Morning My Friends


Forty minutes of bike-path intervals this morning, and I would have beaten the rain had I not stopped at the beach to shoot this dumb video.

too bad the video won't load

Marco Fanelli said...

Yep, just like that!

I'm not sure why the video won't load for you. It works for me in three different browsers on a PC. Maybe there are some flash player updates or something? What about the radar video above, does that work? Stupid computers!

Thank you for testing that. I never know about these things, and it bewilders me how finicky our computers can be! My latest computer "issue" is that I got wireless mice for my computer and my kids' computer, and even though they are a good 30-40 feet apart, the stupid mice interfere with each other and don't work right when we're all on. Sheeesh!!
