    Formula 1 Thread

    I've just learned that there is a Grand Prix race around the city of Pau in formula 3 cars. That seems completely nuts and the sound can be heard clearly for many miles. Had anyone watched that before?

    I wonder if my '71 Bug is still going strong. RIP BUG And RIP to Justice John Paul Stevens. Badass name for a judge who let his conscience and the law dictate his decisions instead of his political party.

    What are you EATING right now?

    Happy Claire was happy and needed a short nap following the 3.5 hour lunch and a little buzzed shopping. Adam--yes, we are heading south on Tuesday and we will see two stages of the Tour in and near Pau. The last time we went to the Tour was Lance Armstrong's seventh "win"

    What are you EATING right now?

    Today we had probably the most delicious and certainly the most expensive lunch of our lives at the two Michelin star restaurant at Bernard Magrez's La Grand Maison. Before we ordered anything, five or six plates containing at least seven amuse bouches arrived, along with suggested order of consumption. I got distracted and forgot to photograph them. We went for the six course lunch with wine pairings. Dessert was actually five different desserts each followed by two more treats to amuse our bouches. Extraordinary food paired with incredible wines. I also forgot to photograph the rump of veal. Dommage.

    So exciting that Cunty Camper the necro troll is back! Now posts once every 4-5 years to see if he can poke the bear and get a reaction. Best to ignore and just post a bit of an exchange with the great troll crusher of old, Matt the Younger. ~~snipped some witty repartée by us and cunty responses~~ Fuck you Matt, I miss you.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Looking good, Jeff. You might consider a post cap or even a solar post cap light because the flat top piece may not last in rain and snow, etc.
