Londoner Luke Bream, 33, sporting a pink and white jersey, is
attacking a punishing mountain leg of the world's most famous cycle
race, the Tour de France. It is clearly hard going.
At least he is well in front of the 152 remaining riders (189 set
off from London) in the three-week long Tour. In fact, he is 24
hours ahead as he has been along the entire route so far.
And amid the backdrop of accusations of cheating among official
Tour de France riders, [his mother] assures the Guardian Luke is on
nothing but his own adrenaline.
“Oh no, Luke doesn't take drugs at the best of times, not even an
aspirin if he has a headache. He does take some cod liver oil
tablets, but apart from that he's doing this largely on Coca Cola
and jam butties.”

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are

so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
