Sounds like you've got a couple of kids you're proud of.  That's quite an accomplishment.

Got to get a snow thrower. Shoveling sucks. 

 

Random association can be a weird thing.  With snow throwers or snow blowers, I reflexively think of one of the best 007 flicks in the series - "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" (OHMSS) ... and this scene, courtesy of YouTube.  (rated PG +, yikes)

Possibly the best movie in the James Bond collection.  Might have had the best musical score - the cuts without lyrics, that is.  High school and college friends and I used to recite many of the great one liners.  Their lack of political correctness was pretty damn funny.

MOVING ON, Sunday is National Chocolate Cake Day.  Plan accordingly.

Yummy Chocolate with wine, but any Chocolate!

Yup, goes to show that even a tiny car, if set up right, can be capable.

Interesting....  speaking of India market vehicles, I was reading about the Mahindra Marazzo..was at the Detroit auto show--a FWD BOF crossover for the Indian market, designed in Detroit.   Very unusual.

Mahindra is a pretty big company, I believe.

Whoa, crazy and kinda cool!

SOOOOO... the 5.3 betters the 2.7, and the SIX POINT TWO equals it, for fuel mileage?  Just goes to prove that the Chevrolet smallblock is the PERFECT engine to power these trucks.  Nothing comes close!  Yuge waste of engineering dollars, the 2.7, imho.

I was going to wait until I ordered and consumed some chocolate cake today.  In the midst of Sunday shopping, I made some time to do just that and have a cup of coffee with it.

I'm hoping a slice of chocolate truffle pie counts.  Delicious!

One of the highlights of that movie was the Irma Bunt character.  Not in a good way, but still a highlight of that movie … a most unique villain(ess) within the 007 series of films.  My friends and I had a field day with her.

Homemade apple pie and 2 huge tablespoons full of Nutella (yes, just Nutella on that spoon) for me for dessert just now! 

 

And there are several Bond girls that my friends and I would like to have a field day with.  More like a roll in the hay rather than a field day...

But yeah!  Bond girls...

A lot of ppl say the CUV is the blandest vehicle genre ever in the history of the world.  What is the blandest CUV on the market right now, in you guys' opinion?  I think it's the Chevy Trax, if measured on style alone.  Mechanically, it seems competitive in the class.

Irma Bunt does not really qualify as a Bond girl.  LOL.  She portrayed (Telly Savalas's) Blofeld's henchwoman in this flick.  She was very Germanic and sort of scary .... on various levels.  

We had a field day with her accent and her lines.

Ah, yes.  Nutella.  I was raised on it.  When you're a kid and you can eat just about anything without putting on a pound. Sometimes just slathered onto those round Kaiser type rolls you'd get at an Italian bakery.
