Look who's the movie star now. (It's Noah)

Cyndy saw this at 5:30 in the morning.

Robin Miller's article on racing driver's insurance mentions Tim McCreadie.

Brumo's needed more than 25 cautions to win the 24 Hours of Nascar.

"• The winning No. 58 Brumos Racing Porsche Riley was found to be out of compliance for minimum vehicle
weight in post-race technical inspection. The car was found to be 12 pounds underweight. The team was fined $5,000 in addition to five driver, team and manufacturer points. This will not affect the race results."

I watched the David Letterman show for a second on Monday night. Unfortunately, I saw one of his classic unscripted attacks on our great Governor. It starts at 2:19, the beginning is a one of his classic scripted jokes, which is also poor. Mom and Dad, make sure he is not in the room when you watch it.

The good news is the Wheels Down Winter Test for Sebring:

Dyson Mazda, same line up as last year plus Ben Devlin for Sebring and Petit.

Fernandez Acura LMP2 with Luis Diaz and Adrian plus Michel Jourdain for Sebring.

Sebring and maybe St Pete and Long Beach then "race by race."

Flying Lizard

Letterman redeems himself a little. Rahal Letterman M3 with Dunlops.

Acura LMP1 with SiPag and DeFerran and Dixon for Sebring. Front and rear tires are the same which is a little odd looking.

Finally, this is very promising: Creation with plans for the US.

This ad was in the times useless. I thought it was odd.

I will eat your brain!

Do we look like movie stars?

Noah's November 21 post on how the US auto industry issues might play out missed the possibility that Fiat might come to Chrysler's aid. Perhaps this outcome was missed because it is likely to be a spectacularly bad idea.

Rickey Henderson was elected to the baseball Hall of Fame. Here is a sample of baseball cards.

three kids

Couple of photos of the family. Mom took the picture of our heads. Of course I had to edit her foot out of it. We got about 6" of snow today.

Check out the driver lineup at the grand am website for this car #67 TRG. They could be in the top 5 overall with no mechanical issues. My early underdog for the DP class is the #22 Alegra car. My early first DP out of the race will be the 09, 13, 45, or 55. I will narrow it down and have a full list of predictions prior to the race.

Rachel tried to multitask by drying the towel on the stove while making tea. Maybe that is where El Pelón Taqueria went wrong, too.

We stopped at the Utica train station on the way home.

We went to Stillwater for the weekend. There was enough snow for the kids to play and go sleigh riding.

New Year's eve.

Some post Christmas pictures. We finished the lionel train puzzle. Oliver took a nap. Elliot played with his new toy. He seems to really like it.

Happy New Year to everyone! Thanks for sharing the Christmas photos...Philip and I really enjoyed seeing the kids and the snow. Here is a photo of Philip making and Indian feast for dinner last night at my parent's house in Sacramento. The menu consisted of: hussaini kabab (lamb kabobs with raisin stuffing), gujrati dal (lentil and vegetable stew), and chapati (flat bread). Everything was really tasty! -Rachel

Here's a wonderful blog to start the new year with-

Fascinating stuff- George Orwell's diaries posted daily, 70 years later. He is currently in Morocco and the eggs are being laid, not eaten.
