We're going to auto-cross the Mini tomorrow. He's insane with excitement...walking around the house with my old Shoei on while pretending to drift.


When I was little in Quebec my dad used to drive in Rallys in our Vauxhaul when he wasn't riding Trials, I never got to go with him but me and my mom used to wait at the start/finish for him to get done, it was fun to be around the cars and excitment. We went to Watkins Glen every year we lived there..

Your sons going to have a ball Ken, he'll remember that all his life..

I've been told it's Gaelic for (rough translation here) "He comes from The Hill". My family name is taken directly from a Castle (now a ruin) carrying that name in Scotland. It used to be a "Summer Home" used by Royalty - among them the Bruce's, and Mary, Queen of Scots. NONE of my family were bluebloods, but a few servants that left and came to America in the late 1700s took the Castle name as their Surname.

We even have a Coat of Arms - but I daresay nobody carrying that name has a right to it. It was the Livery worn by servants of Castle Creech.

Damn, that looks fast!!!!!


Back on topic, I'd be happy if the insurance companies would just stop putting thick page advertisements in EVERY magazine. Rip them out, and the mag weighs half of original.

Aren't you glad I'm to poor to afford tv advertising?

You've already got your logo: King-Kong on a Bimmer. Maybe Kim can pose as the abducted blonde. :D
