Oh anodized aluminum is expensive. My old XPS730 had an Anodized aluminum case. really miss the case....

Purdy Rolls. I like the stock steering wheel though, or somewhat less wood (I like the way Lincoln did it - you get wood in the center, but the actual wheel is leather or vinyl or whatever) - more understated. I'd agree on getting that anodized black if you're gonna swap it though.

On the white-walls, again, I think it might be too much overload. Faux white-walls look purdy though. If the car wasn't white, I'd be all over white-walls and more wood though. I just think you run the risk of going from Barry White to Liberace if you start adding too much stuff.

As long as he stops before he hits feathers/fur he'll be alright.

Yeah, I figure as long as I avoid the pink faux fur and sequins It'll be kosher.

No offense obob, but if Magick's Rolls starts looking like a Lincoln, he's going the wrong way... tongue.gif

LOL! I like obob's Lincoln, it has character (and the light scent of formaldehyde).

One thing that was interesting about the Rolls, was that when they were ripping out the old seats they found $45 in cash and 2 sealed condoms... blink.gif I just told them to keep it and have a party. The guy didn't get my humor at first, he just looked at me.


What kind of chick doesn't want to go to Fiji on Vacation? She wants to go to Rome. Rome? It's roughly the same climate as TN during the winter, rainy and cold. confused.gif Actually, what she'd like to do is go there and then wander all over Europe, like we did for our honeymoon, though that time we started in Dublin. Problem is that 3 weeks isn't enough time, you really need an entire summer to do Europe properly (rent or buy a car and just run all over the place).

Well, I don't have many illusions about how long I have, but 20 years is probably a bit of a stretch. I try to keep that in mind. Plus, she's a little crazy and kinda mean, and that keeps me on my toes and makes things interesting.

After watching more LotR, we've decided on NZ and Oz for winter break, as a compromise. Warm weather for my joints and she'll get to explore Down Under. We'll do Europe this summer when there's more time.

We went to Australia for 10 days last year. It was a great trip - but, of course it wasn't NEARLY long enough. It was a "bucket list" trip for us - we have always wanted to go there. Once we got there, we were really surprised at how many of the parts we visited were actually VERY similar to areas very close to home! For example, there were parts of the Ocean Road near Melbourne that were amazingly similar to the Pacific Coast Highway along the Central Coast of California. Bondi Beach reminded me A LOT of Redondo or Laguna Beach. California is full of Eucalyptus trees that were imported from Australia. Of course, there is NOTHING like the Great Barrier Reef or the Sydney Harbor or the rain forests - and we certainly don't have 'roos, koalas, emus and crocs in California! I don't want to give the impression that because we saw some familiar views the trip was somehow diminished - far from it! It was great! We stuck to the tourist spots on the North & East coasts, there just wasn't enough time to see the outback or Western Australia. I would love to see New Zealand.

Random travel thought: have you guys ever looked at the Cunard World Tour on the QM2?

Well, speak of the devil:

It's going to Oz in 2014.

When I'm on vacation, I prefer to stay in one spot for a longer time. I like getting to know the area, the good little spots for lunch, hanging out at the beach (I also prefer my vacation spots to have a beach!), and just slowing everything down and detoxing from my life. The best vacation I have ever been on was 10 days in a beach-front condo on Grand Cayman Island. After a day of snorkeling, we would stroll to the gelato shop, then come back and spend the remainder of the afternoon at the pool bar getting hammered on drinks that have umbrellas & slices of fruit. That's my perfect vacation!!
