Monaco is pretty awesome, but nothing beats the double rainbow of F1 and MotoGP Laguna. The Red Bull slap fight will no doubt continue, but on a course that won't be unkind to the McLarens. Maybe Schumi can step it up at his home GP. Yep, now that Webber and Vettel are bickering there are no more likeable characters capable of taking the checkered.

And Rossi is back, maybe not in total 'screw-dirt-passing form, but enough to mount a serious challenge. With Hayden figuring out the subpar Desmo and Spies getting new Yamaha parts, the Americans might have a showing. But money has to be on Pedrosa who is finally looking consistent.

I have two things on the way. First is a sun sail for the backyard - green rather than beige. I plan to string it up over the pump and shallow end of the pool. That'll deflect some falling leaves and have little impact on sunlight hitting the pool.

The Duc's seat is pretty well worn so I ordered a replacement from Sargent. It's guaranteed more comfortable than the oe, maybe nice enough to take a spontaneous Monterey trip on Friday. It is motorsport weekend 2010 after all.

you don t have comments on your blog, so i gotta email you to tell you that you need to prune that basil so it doesn t flower.


Somebody should have thought of that a decade ago when he bought me site hosting sans script support. Funneling emails to the html generator works pretty well and there's no possibility for captcha fail.

Having brought in the railing to align with the support pillars, there was an extra bit of usable space around the edges of the deck. So I turned it into planters.

Ferodo pads on the front. They're supposed to be stoppier than the Brembo ones, I'll let the car in front of me be the judge of that.
