Is This Thing On?

I admit, I have been a slacker with this blogging gig lately. I got busy, I got sad, and I just set it aside. I’m making a comeback, though. There’s lots to talk about, like a new car (Mercedes C300 coupe in matte paint – purr, purr, purr), Formula 1 excitement, new forms of horsepower […]

F1 Sunday – the Rest of the Story…

Where was I before real life interfered? Oh yes – the USGP. In my grandstand seat on Sunday, sipping a COTA Flame, waiting for the races to begin. As I write this, the temperature hovers around freezing and the rain is pooling in my backyard. Last Sunday it was 86 degrees without much of a […]
