0-60mph in 3.4 seconds, hitting 100mph in 8.5 leaving Porsche 911 turbos and Corvette Z06s behind. I had a chance to drive another amazing car over the holiday break. In a past post I mention driving a BMW M6 and a Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series. I love driving these cars.

I've often dream of traveling with a mini-camper; one that encompasses the unified sensibility of minimalism and homey comfort. Except I want to take my legs, thus I may need to change the trailer dimensions.

My old snow blower, a freebie from Dad, has a cool design. I like the camelesque humped lines. It's cool that it's a Bobcat.
While doing some research on it, I found a blog dedicated to old snow blowers. (Another reason for snowmen to smile.) This blog had a link to Google Patents.
Simply typing in the patent number gave me heaps of drawings and information from the original patent application.
Patent number: 2770894
Filing date: Jul 3, 1952
Issue date: Nov 1956
Great to learn about the Bobcat. Cool to have access to drawings of many of my patented gizmos around the house. May come in handy.

I love reading bike blogs and taking tangential runs via posted links. Now that it is ski season, I though I would try to find a vein of ski blogs for similar reading. I stumbled on Ullr, an arrow shooting Nordic God. I, at once, thought of the Anders(s)on brothers who are also arrow shooting Nordic skiers.
Clicking on a link, I found a local Ullr Ski group who sings at Re-entry House. It's a small web after all.
