The holidays are here

Official Christmas lights tester
... and I just ordered my gift: the Civic's new engine. Soon I will have all the necessary parts for the install. When I went to pick up some parts the other day, I spent some time in an industrial garage rented by a few young guys for their various projects. There were some neat cars there, a BMW 540i, a Prelude, a Skyline, a Scirocco and a couple of other enthusiast's cars and engines. They even had a couch and some friends hanging out. I wish I had a place like that to hang out at when I was 20... I would probably know a lot more about fixing cars than I do now.

Alex offered me the coolest Christmas gift ever: she proposed we go to the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England next summer. Wow... I hope we find a way to make it happen.

Here is a random pic of Jules rolled up in his play carpet.


Alex and I are looking forward to a few days of reduced workload over the holidays. We will also head to Ogunquit for a couple of days, our first ever trip without Jules... should be interesting. 

Happy holidays to all!
