Paranoia or Genuine Fear?

With the past events of what has happened at Sydney I have the distinct feeling that i need to get off my project asap.
This is not good

Bow down to a new god!

Well its seems that Lotus have cracked the Enigma code. They have a more fuel efficient 2 stroke.
The Omnivore engine can run on pretty much anything combustible. And is clean burning.
Fantastic - god bless the 2 stroke gods

Not quite the number of the beast though

Good old Mitre10 days......

When you could go to the paint counter and get your paint mixed.
I missed that mixing machine of death. How it threw the paint can like a rag doll.
Good times

Some classic brits with new paint

Old BSA's set up as street fighters. And an old Triumph 3TA fully restored. Check out the price tag for the 3TA......might be worth restoring your one aye dad!
Try and ignore the blonde on the bsa...... its the only image i could get of the bike. I know she is covering that Speed Triple rear seat cowl.....but I'm she will get off when she realises there is only enough seat for 1.

Opel Ampera

This basically the Opel/Vauxhall version of the GM Volt concept due to be released worldwide next year.

I like the design - seems alot more smother than the Volt is. And the interior has just the right amount of spice. Red on black is a classic i hope never dies.

You have to laugh a bit about the naming though - since tesla has stolen that name we have the GM Volt, Caddy Volta, Opel Ampera....... what next the
Holden Watt?
Saab Henry....

There's Something in the Sea!!!!!!!

It seems it is only a matter of months until we are dealing with Splicers, Little Sisters, Big Daddy's, Big Sisters? Plasmids.......

Seems it is coming to our shores now.
The pieces fit together. Does Rapture still exist?
Bioshock 2 is coming.

Would you kindly join me Mr Bubbles?

The Keeper of That Tapping Pen

I just loved this comment about managing meetings. I feel it is so true.
It is frustrating me currently extending meetings so that people can 'dwell'..........meeting should be like 'bam-bam-bam-ok lets get too it'. I miss managing...

"Q. What’s it like to be in a meeting run by you?

A. I’m not formal and I’m impatient. So I think my team would say that when she starts tapping her pen and the leg starts moving quickly, that it’s time to move on. I’m not good at long, drawn-out kinds of sessions. I want to get to the point and not waste time on something that’s not meaningful for the senior team.

Q. So beware the tapping of the pen.

A. Absolutely. When that starts, you know things are not going well."

Deus Ex Machina

A while ago i called in to visit these guys. See their tricked out cafe racers and flat trackers.
Their cafe is fantastic, and while the food was a little pricey, its tasted great........also who could have complained when you have a view of these fine machines.

Riddle me this, Riddle me that

Sometimes you know the answer, but not the question.
If that is the case - is the answer any good?

Norton Commando 961

Due to be released soon. Should be interesting to see if the brand can make a full comeback like Triumph did.

A test ride can be sort of found here. But it doesn't sound promising.....

A bit of a work in progress...

Give a job to a busy person...

There is an old saying.
"Give a job to a busy person, and you can guarantee it will be done asap"

however i think the next line should be:
"Give 20 jobs to a organized busy person, and you lose him by month end"

What do you think?
