This from an Occasional Correspondent:
Do you know what happened 160 years ago this fall.... Back in 1850?California became a state.
The people had no electricity.
The state had no money.
Almost everyone spoke Spanish.
There were gunfights in the streets.So basically nothing has changed except back then,the women had real tits and men didn't hold hands.
That, my friends, is your history lesson for today…
Heh. That silicone thang is too, too true... as is the rest of it. But especially the silicone.
The Cadillac people are still sending me marketing e-mails for some unknown reason, and I still read 'em prolly for that same unknown reason. But this month's missive actually included sumthin' useful, fun, and entertaining if you're a gearhead (and I AM): a link to the Pebble Beach Concours d' Elegance site. Where you can see pics o' some VERY cool cars, like this:
They did some AMAZING thangs with Legos in the way-back, didn't they? That said... it's just too bad that what you see is as big as the photos get. ALL of these cars could do with high-res, high-quality photos... not the way-too-small thangs such as the above. Still and even, I spent about an hour on the site. Very nice.
