Two months!  Yay, I've been posting for two whole months since starting again.  31 posts in Feb, following my record 61 posts in Jan.  Kewl.  So far, so fun.  One of the best things about posting is hearing from y'all; I have a little collection of "welcome back" and "thanks for posting" emails.  Please keep 'em coming, this is an ego driven blog!

If you're worried about whether John McCain, born in Panama, is qualified to be President, don't worry; read this explanation. [ via Instapundit ]  I just wish Arnold's father had been an American diplomat. 

Tesla P1Elon Musk, founder of Telsa Motors and proud owner of their first car, reports on driving P1.  "It has been a blast driving my Tesla Roadster every day for the past several weeks, using it as my daily driver from Bel Air to Hawthorne. I really think this is the most fun car I’ve ever owned, beating out the McLaren F1 and my 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo."  There has been a lot of bad press coming out of Tesla lately, but perhaps they are going to make good cars, which would save them...

The iPhone goes to war.  As Stephen Green points out, "Cool. Just don’t tie them all together in some kind of… Skynet." ;)

radial dinner tableI like this dinner table.  A lot.  I think I need one, don't you?

Solar Panels 1, Redwoods 0.
