Thanks, I'll keep it in mind for the CRV, that Honda black can look great but it's a bugger! Yes, thanks I do paint correction about every 3 years, although the Macan looked good after 3 so I waited an extra year and only had to do a clay and a few minor spots of correction. I did a major detail on the CRV last spring (it's 6th b'day) so I'll look into cc quartz as a more long term option for her as she wants to keep the car for another 4 years.

My interview via webex has been moved a third time and now it’s at 8 am today. I half think they’ve already hired someone else, but I suppose the joke’s on them since I’ve already accepted another job. It does feel like going through the motions more than actual interest,

Happy Tuesday Team!

I was pretty direct and honest in my WebEx interview this morning and really appreciated my interviewer, who is in India. She was very intelligent and I had good rapport with her. It put the company and job in a better light than I expected. We'll see what happens.

I'm little south of that. I've already got it all laid out. I live off what I've saved plus the nickles I'll get from SS and whatnot.

Finally made it to Allen K's house over the weekend since I was in NJ! On the way out I tried to take a group selfie with the kiddies and wife, but it was only the kids and me. . No clue how the pic came out so bad even though it looked fine on the camera. But Allen has the BEST kids EVER! OMG they were so fun! I need for them to be on a "kids say the darnest things" type of show!

That's awesome G! TLN mini meet is always the right choice, glad you had fun.

Did you race your GT2 vs his wife's 3?

don’t watch many scary movies (birdbox has to be one of the stupidest things ever made) but watched “Silence” on Netflix last night, and i liked it! Stanley Tucci is always good.

in other news, a load of equipment showed up from the phone co. for the fiber install so hopefully it’s happening soon, but no sign of trucks in the neighborhood yet.

I just checked my statements and I’m a little south of it too after a couple of lackluster quarters. Since I still have a ways to go, I have them set up as higher risk/higher reward.

That is a nice looking catamaran and they are much more livable than monohulls. I still haven’t sailed a catamaran. My sailing club has a handful of them. I have to take a class to certify on them. They are usually docked in easier slips to get in and out of. I was supposed to take a big boat class for 40 ft + boats, but the guy in Newport just certified me because I take his 36’ a lot and always return it cleaner than I found it. He said if you can sail a 36’, you can sail a 43’. They do start to look a bit bigger at 50’.

The catamarans behave differently under power, so I definitely want to take the classes/clinics.

If all continues well, hoping to retire before I turn 50.

Managed to grab up Tickets last night for Endgame for Sunday afternoon. Amazing how quickly tickets sold out for this weekend!

My brother is vacating his shop by the end of the month, so I moved my AE86 to a storage unit until the garage renovation at home is done. Pics below.



Tags are just a little bit expired. JAN 2002. The big can muffler is going away. It is not a fart can, though. It is not loud.
