Ok, I had to do this one.

This comes from the Disgruntled Chemist. I don't normaly do list as nobody really cares what I like or anything like that. And mostly because the people that know me know that I like strange things and the people that don't really know me, well I would like to keep them around for a little bit longer.

I'm a car guy, so here goes:

1. Favorite Car? 1957 Jaguar XKSS. This is pure art in motion. Aston Martin DB2

2. Favorite Car you've ever owned? 1962 Impala SS Convertible/1960 Austin Heally 3000

3. Car you would be embarrassed to be seen driving? Anything from France.

4. Next car you plan to buy? Classic Mini Cooper. Please don't tell the DW.

5. Next car you would buy for daily use if money were no object? Refer to number one.

6. What bumper stickers or other decorations, if any, do you have on your car? None

7. Average annual miles you put on your primary vehicle? Company truck, 50,000

8. Describe your driving style. Fast and smile at local law enforcement. I'm the guy you are looking out for.

9. Average highway cruising speed. 5 Miles per hour over posted limit.

10. Fastest you've ever driven?176 MPH at the Richard Petty Driving Experience. 140 plus on the open road.

11. Do you race people at stop lights? No, not really, well not very much, OK sometimes.

12. Will you cross a solid yellow or double yellow to pass someone? No

13. Do you tailgate or flash your high-beams at people in front of you? I would have to go with YES on that one. Come on here people, use your rear view mirror and get the hell out of the way.

14. Worst accident you've ever been in? I was hit head on by a drunk driver and totaled out my 1962 Impala.

15. About how many speeding tickets have you gotten? 4

16. Ever gotten a DUI/DWI? No

17. What kind of car repairs and/or maintenance can you do? Complete car rebuilds including paint. I don't do interiors.

18. Have you ever modified a car you own from stock? The question should be, what car have I not modified from stock?

19. What do you listen to while driving? The radio, CDs, or just run with the window down.

20. Favorite driving song? The list is way to long to type here.

21. Do you use an air freshener in your car, and if so, what scent? No.

22. Messy or clean? Super Clean...I have a black truck with no swirl marks in the paint, and if you have to ask, you would not understand. You can eat off the dash or floor mats. I'm just a little OCD when it comes to my truck.

23. When you and the spouse/significant other go out together, who drives? Me.

All names have been changed to protect the not so Innocent.

Ah, French cars, my first "NEW" car was a Renault Le' Car, bought at Christmas time about 22-23 years ago to replace the Rabit diesel that was going through heads every 20,000 miles.

Le' Car was great for the first 30,000 miles or so. Then no one could figure out how to glue back on the parts that kept falling off. I got to the point that I could replace the shift bushings in less then 5 minutes (I kept spares (yes plural spares) in the glove compartment.) It had the coldest air conditioning I have ever seen, frost would develop on the dash vents on a long trip. But then the brakes went out and no one could figure out where the brake fluid was going, after a couple of months of going from mechanic to mechanic I gave up and traded her on a Toyota.

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
