Another beautiful day in paradise, spent watching football (three games back-to-back), working, and generally enjoying.  After a generally cool year (especially summer) this has been a hot Fall, at least so far...

Cyclelog: Rockstore *again*, 28 miles.  Me and a kazillion motos.  Eleventh day of riding in a row, and it is still not easier.

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia - an amazing SuperTuscanDinner last night was exceptional, L'Opera in Long Beach, one of our favorites.  Had a 2004 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia which was unbelievable.  At this point I am rarely astonished by a wine, but this was so powerful and delicious, we were amazed.

Beaujolais Nouveau - est arrive!After which, we went to our friends Benny and Jan's Beaujolais Nouveau party, which was really fun; I am not necessarily a fan of Beaujolais, but my education in French wines continues.  And it was a great time seeing some old sailing friends.

Barack Obama...  we elected a candidate.  Run run run.

And so to get a health care bill passed, the Democratic leadership in the Senate has bought Mary Landrieu's vote for $100M.  Disgusting.  Federal aid to a state (Louisiana), disguised as healthcare reform.  Blech.

Turns out Mary Landrieu wants us to know, her vote didn't just cost $100M, it cost $300M.  Oh.  Triple Blech.

Neuhaus T-2 tube amplifier - audio heavenNeuhaus Labs T-2 amplifier uses tubes.  "Of course, the T-2 Amplifier has ruined my life.  All my other audio equipment now sounds like ass."  I could so get into tube amps.  But better I don't go there.

the Sea Cucumber, amazingIs this really an animal?  The curiously named Sea Cucumber.  Amazing.

You are fat and especially lazy for thinking this could possibly be anything like me at all.
Share the road!

(thanks, Marc ;)
