Goodwood...

Get your mind out of the gutter. I'm talking about the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Do people in Europe know just how lucky they are for being so close that they could actually go to this event?
I mean we have great car events here in the States, but this is Goodwood. You can actually see the 1958 DB1 that Sir S. Moss and Carol Shelby drove to victory. And even better, you could meet the man himself, Sir S. Moss that is.

Yes, I do love my British cars even with the problems that they have. Lucas, Prince of darkness, is very smart and did great things with electricity, however, when it came to cars most of the time things went dark.

Lola, Cooper, lotus, Jaguar, Bentley, RR, AC, Allard, Healy, and so many more. I should have been born in a hole in England.

If you live in England and do not attend the Goodwood Festival of Speed, I will hunt you down and take your........well something important I'm sure.

I wonder if I could mail myself?

Perhaps frequent flyer miles? Or let the little penguin fly you there?

I have heard the tales of Bert and Someone and automobiles. Electical issues are not the only problems that my ancestors can have with automobiles.

On the road again.

Since taking a new position this spring, I have enjoyed the lack of travel that came with the change flow of life. However, all good things seem short lived as I must now start traveling again on a somewhat regular basis's. The travel will be one to two nights a week during the summer months and then I can go back to less travel come the winter months when sales slow down and customers don't want to see me as much. And due to the lack of a computer to travel with, up loading pictures will come at less regular intervals for present time. And just for the record...I flipp'in snowed on me Wednesday....Snow in June. I have pictures to prove it. Stay tuned.

On the topic of kids

And we are obviously buying less and conscious of all our choices - escaping the consumerism of elaborate do-it-yourself decor and prepared cuisine, the soccer mom mystique, and the bored, lazy, 'gimme' kids. Sometimes a quote comes along that really fits the way you think and live. This is one of those quotes, and the best part is that it comes from my DW. When you spoil you kids with love and a learning environment, no problem. I do believe that some parents do really take care of their kids and teach them to be strong non-whining adults that work to support themselves and intern teach the next generation to do the same. Then there is the rest of the parents that are raising whining think that they deserve everything but don't want to work for it spoiled brats that will complain about the government full time, but are the first ones there with their hands out and still think the should get more.... assbites! Then again some people complain about the way we raise our k
