All I know is one year from today you will be driving this brand-new 435i and you won't be caring a thing about bridges.

The rear diffuser is atrocious. The front end, though...that looks very familiar. I know I've seen it before but where, where...? It's coming to me, wait a second ... Oh! Yeah! NOW I remember!

You'll be fine. It won't be on sale before Spring and C2C5. A blast up the Kanc and/or Bear Notch in the E92 will restore your focus.

It's over. Prepare the old mule for the pasture, start talking to Tulley about options and timing. You don't want to be seen in that old thing once the F32's hit the streets.

It happens when you get acclimated to a warm climate and then return to cold.... I like to stay in a (relatively) warmer climate all the time. I am definitely allergic to snow.

I'm in the Berkshires visiting friends. It is in the high 40s and damp. Not that bad considering how cold it can be here this time of the year. Going back to NY early tomorrow. Its the Chowder Club Christmas Party.

The rear reminds me of a mustang....that's not good is it. It also looked flimsy.

Funny you mention the weather. After a morning of downpours it cleared up and the sun came out. Low 50s and sunny, definitely warm enough for a comfortable outside car wash on December 21st!

I have had 32 power outages since about 5:00pm last night. THIRTY-TWO in seven hours, most of them in the latter half of that period. Most lasted well under a minute, which gets REALLY tiresome after twenty or so. This last one is approaching an hour.

All this from a piddly little storm that barely warranted shoveling the driveway. I guess after Sandy they reassembled the infrastructure in these parts with paper clips and bungee cords.

Rats nests on polls, everywhere I look, around these parts in Connecticut. I hope you have a house-wide surge protector, if not it's time to invest in one...I'm looking as we speak though most of our critical electronics are protected but not the house as a whole.

We picked up an 8k watt generator too....

@BEMO - It is freaking cold up here. People in the Caribbean have no idea what it feels like to be up here.

Wedding update: Signed venue contract, caterer contract, band contract and rabbi. Gotta do Ketubah, save the dates/invitations, flowers/lighting, rehearsal dinner, tux, wedding dress, wedding registry, photographer, honeymoon (we are thinking Philippines). OMG, wedding planning is so much work!

And, gotta start thinking of C2CV!

I have found city governance the slowest in moving to electronic systems and utilizing them properly. Our city used to charge $2.50 for online payment of water bills, because they used an outside vendor. Now they have their own system and there is no charge, but the account log in and payment process is SOOOO tedious. I just send them an eCheck from my bank for free that they need to process like any other old check. Welcome to 2013.

Perhaps the ESCROW account we decided on wasn't such a bad idea after all.

It drives me batty when they want to charge a convenience fee when they are the ones who are getting the convenience. A good system should probably run them about $25,000 to $50,000 - and they want to charge $$ for people to use it. 1) That money is easily paid off in a couple of months, and 2) the amount of money they save from staff savings, error prevention, etc is insane.

I just send them checks from my bank account (online bill pay) so they can do it manually.

IDIOTS! BTW it's not just gov't, but also private.

Audi S8

We are heading back to Florida next week and are kicking around the idea of purchasing a Florida car to replace the Jag XKR that came off lease last fall.

I am seriously interested in the new Audi S8. Hopefully Braman (we bought the E93 from them) will have one available for a test drive.
