Stuff I like on the internet.

I don't channel surf but do surf the internet.  I find a lot more interesting stuff out there targeted to my unique interests.  Here's some things I have recently found and blogs I frequent:   Great Video on old Porsche's and really interesting guy that is passionate about them  I call this guy "my Guru"  I have been trying to eat this way for the last couple of months and feel Great!

A collection of financial philosophers (for the lack of a better way to describe them)  most of the stuff is extreme but I like to read and glean some ideas, (weird but interesting) (most sensible and well rounded of these extreme guys)

Ok, some motorsport links:

Other stuff

That's just some of the places, hopefully you might enjoy them.

Thanksgiving after Thanksgiving

Perhaps it is a Thanksgiving theme I have going here,  I am finding joy in the little things in life.  Last night I found a Gear Wrench that I has lost for over a year and I had to post that newsworthy item several places!

That happiness I felt over something worth $5 got me thinking.  What makes us happy?  Well, I recently bought the above floor mats for my car.  I have wanted floor mats like this since seeing them advertised in Road & Track since I was a kid.  Yeah, they are expensive (at least to me, tightwad I am!) but they are made right here in the south!  And anyway, it was my car's 10th birthday.  Yes I'm that weird, I remember when I bought my car.  Anyway, makes me happy when I get in my car.

I also am happy when I walk into my garage and see my restoration project of a 1973 Honda CB350F, hmm something else I wanted since I was a kid.  Are we seeing a them here?

Am I shallow?  Maybe. But I kind of think that if these little things make me happy it's because so many big things in my life are doing well as well.   Last night Sarah posted this pic on facebook
It's my wife's dad sitting on my motorcycle.  Sarah is excited about seeing him at Christmas.
Vickie and I just recorded "A Charlie Brown Christmas" for our granddaughter's Birthday (it isn't until Saturday so don't anybody tell here).   Those things make me happy.

Ok that's all I have time for, time to go make other people happy!
