In Top Gear Episode #5.1 (TV episode 2004), “The boys travel to their favorite beach in Wales to test the Vauxhall Monaro, the Chrysler 300C and the Jaguar S Type-R,” where James May discovers some things, which can be altered for me to reveal a personal truth.
“Happily, the engine is big, too ... develops a big 382 horsepower, all of which comes at you in big, lazy yawns. For example, here I am doing 60 miles per hour in Top Gear, and the engine is turning over at 1500 r.p.m. 1500; it’s idling. You fat, Aussie slacker!”
I recently pondered on those remarks as I watched the tachometer in my car, “The engine is turning over at 1500 r.p.m. 1500; it’s lollygagging,” so consider, I am persistent in the pursuit of my aims, in a slow but sure striving for security, and I need to complete the following for work.
“Gallup’s strengths-based development programs help you identify your natural abilities for providing near-perfect performances in specific activities, and then provides you with the latest discoveries and strategies for applying your strengths.”
California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) will tell you, “Procrastination is a complex psychological behavior that affects everyone to some degree or another,” yet when one actualizes self, would one not become more confident?

An offer that I cannot refuse 023

BMW Ultimate Driving Experience - BMW North America
“BMW Ultimate Driving Experience.”
Yes, at Baron BMW, I have previously test drove a 2009 BMW 328xi sedan in December 2008, and I took a 2010 BMW 550 GT for a test drive. In 328xi, the “x” denotes BMW’s X-Drive all-wheel drive system, and end of 550 GT denotes “Gran Turismo.”

Until 2006, I had never experienced digital cable TV.
Time Warner Cable had a nonlinear feed for Anime Network,
where I first saw Divergence Eve.

Bring the beat back 012

Since the last time that I brought back the beat, I have received my refund for my taxes to the federal government, yet I have not filed my taxes to Kansas for this year.

Photographer and amateur astronomer Tom Martinez will share his images, techniques and love for astrophotography.

Following the talk, weather permitting, Doug Patterson and Bill Koch, both JCCC professors of science, will host an observation of the night sky at the Paul Tebbe Observatory atop CLB. Visible objects include the moon, Jupiter, the Orion Nebula and the Beehive Cluster.

This event is free and open to the public.

For more information, contact either Koch, or Patterson.”
For Wednesday, tomorrow and Thursday are the same day, yet I had spent part of the day with the idea that today was Thursday. Somewhere in the archives of Egocentric Universe, I have another post when I had confusion about the day or date, as the above author demonstrates.

Lover of the Light

“First responders, volunteers, blood givers, and tech developers.”
Until I electronically received a message by John Paul Aguiar today,
I had different concept for this post.
Warm hearted and usually cheerful, most of the time I display a sunny disposition with a sense of humor, and knowing how to get along with others, results in many friends.
“What about that shadowy place?”
“The T-Rex Café is one of those nostalgia places that wasn’t done very well.
You must never go there, Simba.”
Going to the T-Rex Café was an idea from my sisters to celebrate with our father, whose birthday was today. I think that their only seafood is shrimp.
