Will It Drive Again

Saw this truck in the shop. 

Wondered if it will ever drive again.

Right now it looks like it's headed for mothballs and cobwebs. 

But who knows, cars in worse shape have been rehabilitated.  ;-)

Nice Accents

Cool black Jeep with red accents. 

Subtle but not. 

What does it take to pimp a ride?

Red accents are a start. 

You still need some real fancy tires.

And don't forget the premium upgrade package! 

Otherwise, the ride is just a ride. ;-)

Porsche Lovers

Awesome Porsche "Teddy Bear"!

For Porsche lovers, I think it's mighty hard to resist it. 

Now that's a brand that inspires with its meticulous eye toward design and quality. 

The result is even a huggable Porsche is sweet! ;-)

Carlos Ghosn - Success and Failure


My thoughts on Carlos Ghosn--the head of Nissan, Mitsubishi, and Renault.

What can we learn from his rise to power and his fall from grace?

Basically...be a real leader and not a schmuck!

Be modest.  Be humble.  Give to others.  Do Good!  ;-)

That's Some Pricey Garbage Art


So we stopped in this gallery in Palm Beach.

And there lay this piece of "art".

Well, I'm not sure--is this really art?

The proprietor explained that this is made up of scrap pieces of metal from the garbage dump like from old discarded automobiles. 

The artist welded the garbage together, painted it, and voila there it is--some very pricey art. 

Who pricey you ask.

Take a guess.

No really. 

No, you're too low. 

Try again. 

No, you're still too low.

Not even in the ballpark. 

Okay, I'll tell you, but only because you asked so nicely.

It starts with a 95.  

No, not $9,500.

No, not $95,000 either. 

That's right $950,000!!!

All this "art" can be yours if the price is right. 

Can anyone say "irrational exuberance" again? ;-)

Cat Nap

What a great place to take a cat nap!

So many gorgeous cats in Israel. 

They don't run away either. 

So friendly and happy. 

Sort of got a feeling like they were old souls inhabiting these cats. 

Old souls are very often wise souls.

Cute and wise cats.  

Enjoy!
