I’m not really a “car” kind of guy. I don’t watch racing, and I was never very interested in working on or even looking at engines. I couldn’t care less what I drive so long as it reliably and economically gets me where I’m going. In almost every way, I feel that smaller is better […]

However, I wanted to practice on the nearly full moon tonight, so I headed up to Point Dume Beach in Malibu. That’s a really cool beach with all kinds of tidal pools and the interesting rock formations that […]
