AX 3 DOMAINES, France - Chris Froome used the first tough mountain stage to take command of the Tour de France on Saturday, leaving two-time champion Alberto Contador and other challengers behind on a grueling climb in the Pyrenees to seize the leader's yellow jersey with a dominant win in the eighth stage.
LONDON - One of the strangest Wimbledons produced one of its quirkiest champions in Marion Bartoli, the winner of a mistake-filled final that left the overwhelmed runner-up in near tears during the match.
The recent moderate days with cool nights have given me the itch to go tent camping. Hiking to a destination and pitching a tent along a cool mountain stream or the sandy shore of the Atlantic Ocean is a great experience but you don't have to travel to a distant location to enjoy a night out-of-doors. Your backyard will do just fine, especially if you have younger kids.
