  • [5/643] Fly from Iceland to LondonI loved how the traffic lights in Iceland have a second light that turns on 2 seconds before it goes green, so that the (mostly manual) cars can get shifted into gear early.

  • Pool Sharks & the Aurora Boring-alisWell, the "runtur" was somewhat of a success last night. I say "somewhat" because I gave up around 1am due to the World's Most Famous Hot Dog making me a bit ill.

  • Good, Bad, and Ugly weather....without the Good.We awoke this morning to rain, wind, and temperatures just this side of raw. Okay....probably the other side of raw if you ask Laurie.
