Pix Of The Day: Bringing Joy To All Of Humankind

In the past we have associated displays such as this with the tasteless displays of conspicuous consumption practiced by the nouveaux riches. As the advancing years have mellowed us, we are now more inclined to think that it is done just to share the joy of something beautiful and inspiring with the rest of humankind. Peter Turner similarly continues to share the joys of a vacation in Brittany, France, through the lens of MaccCAM and the pictures on his web site.
Although we visited in the expectation of some pictures of La Merveille, the abbey of Le Mont St. Michel, we were only partially fulfilled. True, Peter teased us with a single picture of the Merveille, even that taken at a distance. However, there is plenty to see in this gallery, called Au Gîte, including pictures of the local livestock, vernacular architecture, another wonderful menhir, and crosses in assorted configurations and designs to please every taste. Visit Peter on MaccCAM for any of the four galleries:  Departure  Roscoff  Morlaix; and now  Au Gîte, with more to come.

At the Road Atlanta Motor Sports Center in Georgia they are starting to kick it up for the 2002 Petit Le Mans. Once again motorsport fans can look forward to some superb action shots from the Cyber Motorsports team, such as the awe inspiring flaming racer featured from last year's event.
The girls from the Atlanta Falcon Cheerleaders will also be on hand to liven things up, with more coverage (or should that be 'less coverage'?) available on their own mini web site. The link to the Cheerleaders swimsuit calendar does not work properly, but our office junior ferreted out the correct link, and also the picture page featuring the girls' bios. Among the 38 strong squad, only Stephanie and Kelly are married, though a few are engaged, but what chance does someone called 'Ferret', who was named for his looks not his abilities, really have? When the racing is over, check back for our favorite action shot from the Cyber 2002 photo galleries.
