No sh*t, there I was... Driving in BFE, single lane road. I was going 60mph (speed limit 65mph) and out of nowhere a green Lamborghini (yes I had to Google how it is spelled) comes speeding up behind me. He was probably going AT LEAST 85mph. I guess he just didn't feel like waiting behind me because he didn't even take the time to slow down before he whipped into the other lane (oncoming traffic) and sped passed me. Funny thing is that at the end of this long road is town and some sucky lights. I ended up passing him after a few lights while he was stopped from speeding up to a soon to be red.

Made my day

Determining that I can achieve far better FE with my Helga than I could with a 2012 Prius rental car, whether in the city or on the freeway...

Granted, I know exactly how to get the best out of my Jetta TDI and that was the first time I'd ever driven a Prius (took me 10 minutes to figure out how to get it started and into Drive)... and I didn't have time to check the tire pressure before driving.

I dont like scooters, so just put on my beer jacket and walk

Daily smile for me was sitting having breakfast this morning, looking out at my newly painted shed (for lawnmower etc, not car in this instance)

Much better than the dark green it was
