Potable pollens

Your omniscient author in absentia:
I'm under the weather from allergies* today, so you're on your own in considering, "Can we just go ahead and always play the Angels?"


*[And by "allergies" I mean, of course, the dry mouth, dry heave, drubbed feeling one gets the morning after attending an obligatory weeknight social function with an open bar.]

Too many Pollen-tinis, H.B.?

You wanna dance, you gotta pay the band, ...

Little McDonalds, splash of Berocca, lotta water, hb, you'll be right as rain in no time.

Can I just sing a psalm of praise for modern technology? I drove from BOS to NYC last night exactly during game time. 10 years ago I would have driven my car into a bridge abutment somewhere outside New Haven when the signal faded. Instead, quick transition to headphones and MBL 2011 iPhone app. Kickass car ride, and glory be for Angels.

Amen Natalie. Ten years ago I would not have been able to get either the Brunis game or the Red Sox game. Last night I got to flip back and forth between them all night, (and of course we missed the 6 run outbreak completely) while also recording The Event. We did get to see Pedey's most excellent at bat to drive in the go ahead run - I wish we had half dozen Pedroia clones. And is Horton on fire during overtime or what?

Mommy says, "Every time a bell rings, The Angels lose a series."

And on a completely off topic topic... Has anyone out there coughed up the scratch for a new Infinti M35 hybird? It test drives like a dream but I'm wondering about reliability for the new drive train (and it is an awful lot of scratch).

If by the new Infiniti M35 hybrid you mean the T, yes.

Bob, at least the T is more reliable than the MARC trains (hence the hybrid idea).

I just drove a Nissan Altima Hybrid up to BOS, down to Franklin, all around town, then back to NYC on 1.5 tank of gas. It was frickin' awesome (and SO quiet). I am now a hybrid convert...although I really really really want the Audi Q5 Hybrid. It's so pretty. Sigh.

Thanks Nat. Unfortunately, the Altima has the Toyota designed and licensed tandem hybrid system vice the new Nissan/Infinity designed in-line system so its track record probably doesn't provide much info on the new drivetrain. I hesitate to spend so much on a relatively unproven design.

I feel ya. I feel ya, bro!

I wonder if they give the American market completely different engine builds than they do over here. The hubby just bought a BMW 335, and he gets between 450-550 (32city, 48 hwy) miles to the tank, depending if he feels like a boy racer that month or not.


You guys get screwed, man. Then again gas is around 9 bucks a gallon here, so tit for tat.

I think the English models burn a lot of oil in addition to the gas, so there's the extra energy to add to the mileage...


Reminds me of an old joke: Q. Why don't the English build computers? A. They can't find a way to make them leak oil.

Gee I almost feel jealous...Steve NEVER talks so much car talk to me, his own wife. HA HA!

I once had an MG Midget with a bumper sticker on the back that read, "All the parts falling off this car are of the finest English quality."


The sticker was actually the only thing holding the bumper onto the frame...
