So what do you really hold dear? My wife was at work so left over on that list are my kids, my gym and my new, just got here today Cooper S. It is incredibly quick and it handles as if it was on rails. What a treat to drive.

I just noticed the "lectern".

No doubt he's already tried that with one of his vehicles at some point.

Gratz, looks like a lot of fun!

Have you cut holes in the floorboards yet for the "Car Lift and Carry"?

It says 26 and 32...we'll see. Still working on the first tank of gas. Compared to my F350 crew cab long bed truck with diesel as expensive as it is and parking as miserable as it is with that beast, zipping around in the MINI is a treat. In fact, I'm about to load up the kids and take a ride and try to figure out a reason to be going after I leave.

Not particularly good exercise pushing that thing. The 168 horses under the hood push it very quickly and after I parked it in the gym I wanted it scooted back a few feet so I stuck my left foot out and it was like scooting back in a chair. If we push anything it will be my truck.

Paul...I have a Flintstones picture in my head with your suggestion.

The lecturn is actually a dictionary holder but is used as a place where I keep the gym diary where I write down everything we do in there and then transfer it to my blog.

Kids are getting anxious to go drive. They really love that car.

I love the idea of posting your numbers from past races on the wall. Add to each the distance and time and watch them improve with your workouts.

Two words: Dairy Queen. Granted it shoots the crap out of the Zone. It is starting to be summer and that is the tradition out here in MN. The Teeny boppers will oggle your car anyway.
