Hot Wheels

The Real Thing
I’m sure you remember when Hot Wheels were a popular toy. I remember the plastic track that you could connect to a table or chair. You could arrange the track in loops, turns, etc. Then you could release those Hot Wheel cars and watch them go through the loops and race down the tracks. Good memories… watching the children play with Hot Wheels and trying to pick the fastest car.

I hope you enjoy this video of the work and planning that went into trying this loop-the-loop with a real car. This is hot wheel in full size.

Quote of the Day
Brew me a cup for a winter's night.
For the wind howls loud and the furies fight;
Spice it with love and stir it with care,
And I'll toast our bright eyes,
my sweetheart fair.

Joke of the Day

While on a road trip, an elderly couple stopped at a roadside restaurant for lunch.

After finishing their meal, they left the restaurant, and resumed their trip.

When leaving, the elderly woman unknowingly left her glasses on the table, and she didn't miss them until they had been driving for about forty minutes.

By then, to add to the aggravation, they had to travel quite a distance before they could find a place to turn around, in order to return to the restaurant to retrieve her glasses.

All the way back, the elderly husband became the classic grouchy old man.  He fussed and complained, and scolded his wife relentlessly during the entire return drive.  The more he chided her, the more agitated he became.  He just wouldn't let up for a single minute.

To her relief, they finally arrived at the restaurant.  As the woman got out of the car, and hurried inside to retrieve her glasses, the old geezer yelled to her, “While you're in there, you might as well get my hat and the credit card”.
