Our Fiat 500 is at least 30 MPH faster sitting in the driveway now that it has its racing stripes! Thanks to Mike at Wicked Stickers for the great work.
Candy was thrilled to get her car earlier than expected, since I got home on Saturday night instead of Sunday. (Sure, she claimed that she was happy to see me but I know the truth.) We waited until daylight to take this picture and you can still see that “FIAT Grin.” I had been calling […]
A feisty yellow FIAT 500 Sport joined our family on Friday. 🙂 I picked it up from FIAT of Salt Lake City after an on-line chat with Shane revealed a car on their lot configured just like Candy and I had been prepared to special order. After a tough week at work, I had the “chore” of […]

The discussion on one of my favorite mailing lists has turned toward nostalgic reminisces of the golden days of technology, including antique floppy disks and RT-11 cheat sheets.

Jonathan Trappe has discovered real flying, under a cluster of helium balloons. He took off from Oshkosh, Wisconsin last month, flew across Lake Michigan (overnight), and landed in Michigan, near Kalamazoo. Sign me up! This looks like more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

I have been walking regularly for over a year and have lost almost 30 pounds. Now I want to start running and the calcified structure within my skull nudged me and suggested that a little research might be in order before I hit the pavement. I checked the library and discovered that the authority record […]
Truly amazing. The song lasts one minute and then, well, just watch.
