Amazing detail from manufacture called CMC in Germany. Of course this is made in China or somewhere near by and over all length is 23cm. This is the same color as mine. I want one. I just have to justify $300 and place to hide from you know who.

Wow. Found this on web page. I dig people who has guts to modify half million dollar car. Resale value drops drastically and taste is so bad but I bet he does not give a shit. Pure cool.

McCloud River near Mt. Shasta. Went there for Fly Fishing trip. Fly Fished 1st time and caught about 5 rainbows. It was hot but water was cold. Put chair in river and cool down... Nice!! 6 hours from bay area.

Nissan GTR. My dad used to had similar type 35 years ago. It's nice to see they are still exciting some people. I love this show

There was one before to this episode where Jeremy does Fuji track and that is fun to watch too.

Bodum Glass. Bought bunch tall and short from Amazon. I do not know how they mass produce them but it is kind a nice to see your liquid floating...

We finally got Green Card. It ain't much green but it looks pretty high tech on the back. I never seen card like this. Must be tons of counterfeiter.

Shinobi 2005. Bad movie. SFX is all borrowed from Chinese Ghost story, weapon idea is from X-men. Story sucks and last scene is just gross. Some nice scenery of Japanese valley but that is about it. $2.

Put new seat on it to match my old shock. This bike is more than 15 years old bike but still does the job. Like the fat frame.

Chihuly at de young. Ain't my taste but sure was drawing crowd. $15 each.

De Young Cafe. So many want to see Chihuly but there were some seat so we ate some snack lunch. Pasta tasted alright but others were snacky. But hey its a museum bistro. $50 for four.

The Spiderwick Chronicles (2008) The mother is the same as one in Weeds. And dad is good old Pretty in Pink although he does not come on more than a minute or so. Good movie for kid between 6 and 11. Good SFX, story wise so so. $9.

Wave board called Rip Stick. I just borrowed kids and tried for the 1st time. Although I can not go fast yet it is fun movement. It is fun to see my brain picking up new movement.

Carmel Italian restaurant Il Fornaio. It has fantastic looking cafe area at back? entrance. Went there on afternoon and it had casual air to it with big table in the middle where you can sit and read paper. Reminded me of big tabled pancake shop in Sydney. Nice.

Carmel town. Small street like that is everywhere. Kind a nice change from other city in CA. Also no invasion by typical major fast food or popular chain.

17 miles drive b/w Monterey and Carmel. Nice drive with Pebble Beach Gold courses in the middle. Not sure how tough it is too keep grass in such a condition at beach side like that but I bet it is tremendous effort. $10 to drive. Must be Mecca for Golf player.

ベクシル Vexille 2007. Full animation Sci-Fi. Amazing realism but still there are some movement looks a bit funny but it kind explains when you find out who they really are.... OK story but somehow I thought it was all Japanese in the beginning instead of Americans. Too bad some character design looking like borrowed from some'n else i.e. jags from Dune. OK with kids but too tecky for girls. $10.

Yosemite trip. In the visitor center, they have pretty good video. In it, the narrator said some say park is like nature's cathedral. I kind a agree seeing this kind a view. When we are there, it was like 100F. I want to go in Fall or winter if they are open.

We went up to Glacier point in Yosemite. The view is amazing but I am getting my balls sour. I am getting more and more scared of height as I age. Yikes. Those people in the pic. What are they thinking!"#$% 1st time trip to there. Really good.

Yosemite View Lodge. 5 of us stayed for $200. Huge room with kitchen. Clean? Not really but alright.

I think Eames has done the design of this stamp diffrently but I still like it.

Fixie bicycle from Norway

Alta Bike which I like now comes in black too. Why do they not sell them in the US???  Does anyone know?

94 cents is the cost of sending postcard to Japan. It used to something like 70 a few years back. What kind of infration is this? I know fuel is going up but this is big jump man. I can send envelop with similar price....

How ridiculous a brand could be? This must be a knock-off but found it funny. I remember seeing slipper in Japanese toilet with genuine Yves saint Laurent logo on it. YSL spread themselves so low and thin that no serious brand hunter bought anylonger. It is often tough to decide expand or control, isn't it?

Just watched 1st season. Pretty wacky, sexual and funny show. Love the opening clip where everyone lives alike in burb. But it seems like rated R version of desparate house wife show. Need a bit more of deeper plot to chase or wantingness to watch next episode, since there is not much now. $4 a hit.

Eichler at 759 Pear. It was for sale, and I liked it but looks like it is gone.... It has nice wood panels inside and original ball lamps etc. Too bad.

Cable Car Museum in SF. I kind guessed there was big engine / power house to run those cables but it was kind a simple and nice place. Angled pooly at basement is amazing too. I have seen many big machinary like big engine for huge boat etc. but this engine is much bigger scale running cable all over the city. Whoever thought first is amazing and whoever supported and agreed are even more amazing too. Free for all.

10000 BC (2008) I did not know what to expect before I saw it. Story was simple and OK. Did Pyramid was build 10000BC? I thought it was a bit later but who cares. I think the movie was not about matching time on BC/DC stuff. Amazing to see actors wear so less in cold settings. How those people survived back then without Goretex or any warm cloth? Either we are so weak now or they had far better cloth than I think.
Anyway, movie is OK to kill a few hours. $8.
