    Retirement Cake VW Style

    Mmmm -- chocolate! But not German. Most of the cake was eaten at her party, but everyone thought to preserve the VW logo portion and that came home with us. (y)

    Retirement Cake VW Style

    My wife celebrated her retirement today. She loves her '17 Golf Wolfsburg 5M and being an avowed VW fan, her workmates knew just what to put on her cake. :D

    Custom Car Posters - GTI Generations

    My nephew found this super nice GTI Generations poster for me as a Christmas present and I think it's the coolest thing. He was even able to order it in Cornflower Blue. :) My photo below hardly does its quality justice. (Please forgive the glare on the glass too.) I looked up the maker on the...

    New Kia Logo vs Nine Inch Nails

    Thank you. It's funny that you mention that because I thought the trailing "N" was reversed, but couldn't find a graphic to support it. My memory was rooted in the videogame Quake (from 1996) where one of the weapons was a nail gun I think. The proper reversed N matches the Kia logo even...

    New Kia Logo vs Nine Inch Nails

    Kia's puzzling new logo has a vague similarity to the logo used by the '90s band Nine Inch Nails. In any case, I'm not a fan of Kia's attempt at rebranding.

    Paint Color Names

    I've always loved Mopar's color names such as Plum Crazy (Purple), Lime Light, Lemon Twist, Top Banana, Sassy Grass, Vitamin C (Orange) and others. Kia's Alien (Green) also deserves high marks. (y)

    Paint Color Names

    I found that Valspar paint at Lowes sometimes reuses the same paint color name for a different tint. I painted a piece of furniture in Coastal Dusk, then went to buy more two years later and found it was not the same color! :confused:

    Paint Color Names

    Recalling the Salsa Red color, the VW showroom brochure cautioned against "dipping your chip in it". :D

    Paint Color Names

    Our TDI Sportwagen 6M was Salsa Red. Now that color name makes sense! :)

    Any here into retro gaming?

    I quit gaming some 20+ years ago, but my favorites were Wolfenstein 3D and Duke Nukem. I've not checked to see if there's modern PC versions of these, plus I'm used to playing with a joystick, not a mouse or keyboard.

    Camera storage

    I'm still using a camera bag bought at K-Mart 40 years ago. It's had a hard life, holds the DSLR and two lenses and will likely outlive me.

    I didn't have much of a chance to mess with Sirius, being overwhelmed with all of the other MIB3 functionality and Apple CarPlay. They used to allow six months free, now it's only three months free. They have some inexpensive offers to extend service, but you must give them your credit card...

    Millenial Job Interview

    I'm blessedly retired now, but I served on a number of interview panels and an employer has to be ever so careful about questions these days. We were forbidden to inquire about marital status, children or even ask if they had transportation. After hiring people who were less than honest about...

    Mk8 and other cars I’ve seen in Finland

    Sad that the Scirocco is no longer made anywhere. Gosh how I wanted one in the early '80s (in the U.S.), but couldn't afford. I agree with the others here -- your pictures are fascinating! :giggle:

    Mk8 and other cars I’ve seen in Finland

    Weird question, but do car horns in Europe sound like they do in North America, i.e. a one note blast? I wonder if Golfs have something different there?

    East Coast Pipeline Down

    I'm in good shape for survival. My wife is a former Girl Scout Leader and when we get hurricane warnings, she knows exactly what to buy and how to prepare. She led a Troop for nearly 15 years and the lace-and-tea-set girls all quit in view of her love of camping and hiking. :D She even took...

    East Coast Pipeline Down

    Of this, in a college class in 1979 my Professor told the class, "Don't get mad kids. Buy their stock." :D Interestingly, Exxon shares sell today for what they did in 2005, Chevron's for what they did in 2011. Despite pipeline hack prices, I still filled my GTI with 93 Octane (U.S.). :giggle:
