Can you guess what this road sign means?
My most recent MB is a 2008 S 600. It comes with an incredible amount of electronics and computing power.
My friend Stephani recently acquired my 1992 500 SL. Sure, it had a fair share of electronics BUT I think that in 20 years that '92 Benz will still be able to move around town. I am more doubtful about the '08 S. Will all those chips and stuff still be available in repair shops? I doubt it.
So, if the weather is not too hot or too cold all I'll be able to do with my '08 Benz in '28 is sit in its very comfortable seat. Meanwhile the owner of the '92 will be able to drive her car to antique car shows.
PS: Jon is the first person who got it right.
I believe that would be the special parking lot at the Fort Lauderdale airport where people wait in their cars for a call to pick up a passenger upon arrival into a terminal. These lots were created after 9/11 since cars are not supposed to "loiter" around the airport terminal for security reasons. If it is not the Fort Lauderdale airport, it could be any airport with a similar type of "waiting area" parking lot.
Yes! South Beach in Miami Beach is cool. But, there is no place to park on your own. If you don't trust the parking touts it is still worth the drive if only to see the architecture.
Our Thai wives have lunch.
A "ménage à trois" (*) lunch at Coco.
(*) Do you remember Linda?

PS: Meanwhile, my USA friend, Don Bull, found his 4th brother (they are quints) while in Budapest ... and then lost him again.

Namfon of Namfon's Thai Video CD & Gift now drives a Mini-Fon. The former has her eyes on a bigger crown in Thailand.
My son is still living in Brazil. He writes:
Just to let you know I am not dead. Here's some pictures of my new project. It is of a property I picked up about 30 minutes from Fortaleza that I probably will eventually move to. There are some pictures of Before I cleared it and some after. The pretty woman in one of the pictures is my girlfriend Carmela. The beach picture is from a little rustic bar about 250 meters from the property. The marmoset monkey is one of a family of 5 that come and visit most days. The are almost taking bananas from my hand!
Should I put this (*) in e-Bay? If so, who should I claim it miraculously represents? (**)
(*) The cracker piece was found last night in a box of Pop-Pan Spring Onion Crackers; it was baked in the Far East before being shipped to the US.
(**) Earlier e-Bay auctions have drawn the biggest bids if the offered crumbled or stained thing was pushed to be the profile of either some fictitious religious character or a dead holy lunatic.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You have found the Lost Image of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Hallelujah! Praise be. I was beginning to have my doubts but you have renewed my faith in all that is its spaghettiness.
