I think spring is here!

Yesterday, the temperature in Montreal reached 15 degrees. Also, I saw a Lotus Elise being driven with the roof off. Final clue that spring was here: I saw a Lamborghini.

Sadly, my own summer car is nowhere near being ready to drive. I will surely not be ready for the first race school in two weeks. Oh well...

The BMW is running flawlessly, although some jerk vandalized the car in a shopping center parking lot, removing the side marker lights, the BMW badges and the little M-badges in the side gills. Luckily, I was able to order replacement "Made in China" parts on Ebay for under 100$. Still, very annoying!

I also repaired the broken passenger-side mirror by replacing a broken metal mounting plate (had it shipped from a friendly guy in Singapore) and it was really like a puzzle to assemble all the parts of the power-heated-mirrors in the proper order. I was more than a little surprise when I saw that it worked properly...

My basketball team won both games of the semi-finals and we will be playing in the finals starting tonight. I think we have the right team to go all the way, but our opponents are very tough, with serious outside shooting.

I have seen a couple of new cars on the road. The new Subaru STi looks better in real life than in pictures and is a decent-looking car. The Maserati Ghibli is very nice, and has much better proportions than the current Quattroporte.

Other than that, family life is good. Jules is at a really fun age where he can understand and use language and he is generally in a very good mood, although I can see somewhat what the terrible twos might soon be like.

Here is a photo of J. with the official "Flock of Seagulls" hair style:

And here is a photo of J. "doing stuff" to my laptop. Maybe he will be our go-to guy for setting up our electronic devices before too long?
