Special cars and coffee at Sears Point (Sonoma Raceway)
Once upon a time, in the year 2011, one of my practice room party tricks in college was busting out “Major-General” while playing the xylo part. It occurred to me that Oppo may not be familiar with this O.G. badassery straight out of the haberdashery. Prepare your brains for...razzle-dazzle! *clears throat and schedule*
I am the very model of a modern Major-General,

Public schools are facing a lot of challenges today. Trying to finding the best way to provide a quality education in a world where information of dubious quality is in unlimited supply and the future is far from certain is tough. But never mind all that: Arizona just wants to make sure students can write fancy.

So we were discussing restaurants earlier today and food trucks came up. I had a much worse name for one (Two Grills One Truck), before jonuiuc came up with Grill La Grill, which prompted me to start coming up with an Anime Menu. Here’s what I have so far, and it’s a pretty well-rounded selection:

Anker recently made a new version of its popular PowerCore 13000, this time with a USB-C input port . To be clear, that port won’t charge your phone; it’s only for recharging the battery itself.

I pay pretty good attention to what’s going on, and I had no idea that this exists:The Jaguar XF Sportbrake Is a Used Car Bargain - AutotraderRead more Read
It snowed finally! And it sure snowed a lot. I did not expect to be tree skiing in November at all, much less having bottomless powder through most of it. This past week it snowed 36 inches at the Main Lodge area (9000'), 60 inches at the summit (11000'), and somewhere around 20-30 inches throughout the rest of the mountain (down to about 7600'). Unfortunately I didn’t get to check out the...View more »
We’ve seen two episodes of Doctor Who by Peter Harness—”Kill the Moon” and now “The Zygon Invasion”—and I think it’s safe to say this guy likes moral dilemmas. Theme seems more important to him than whether the plot makes sense, too, which is okay with me. I really liked this episode—sci-fi problems and another classic cliffhanger ending, what’s not to like?
It really feels old fashioned,...View more »
