Life, death and Sandwiches

zevon.jpgIn October of 2002, after doctors had given him less than three months to live, Warren Zevon appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman. Zevon was asked by Letterman if, after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, he had any enlightening information on life and death. Zevon thought for a moment and replied, "Only that you need to enjoy every sandwich."

On Sunday, after a year long battle, Zevon died at the age of 56.

Please take some time this week to tell someone that you love them and go enjoy a sandwich.

Final toughts on Texas

P1010012.jpg Our vacation is over and we had a good time in Texas. The drive was especially fun! I lost count of how many times complete strangers asked to see inside the MINI. We're getting used to it.

Austin was cool, but smaller than I expected. Texas BBQ, while tasty, doesn't hold a candle to KC BBQ. One of the coolest adventures was to the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Food and adult beverages are served while viewing your choice of six films, new and classic. We saw Seabiscuit there on a rainy Sunday afternoon. If you're ever in Austin or Houston, I highly recommend a trip to the Drafthouse.

The final pictures of our Texas trip are now online. Click here to take a look. Next week it's back to regular programming of all MINI news, fun and adventure. :-(>

We're back from the Lone Star State and before I post any more pictures from our travels I have to tell you about the coolest new toy we picked up in Austin. It's called the Airzooka pictured above. I know, it looks like a trashcan, but really it's a vortex generator. Blasts of air can be shot anywhere from 20 to 50 feet. It's incredibly fun and if you fancy the latest and coolest toys, this is the best bet for Christmas. The day we got home, I also noticed the Airzooka advertised at It's already catching on.
