Hi Alex. An advantage of being retired is I don't have to do anything that would aggravate it.I've had a few people tell me getting old isn't for sissies so it must be true.

I've heard windows 10 will be the last full build with upgrades only after that. I'm fine with win 8.1.

You had cancer for 5yrs! Not fun. I had surgery for prostate cancer abt 5yrs ago. Nothing since (knock on wood).

Speaking of motorcycles...

Comment by Gary 9 hours ago

Yikes no! That was next year I was planning that. It was Bob's enthusiasm that got it pushed up to this year. I need to see a doctor near the end of the year because I think I have an embarrassingly mild case of Osteoarthritis. It's incurable and progressive so I need to find out how long I could reasonably expect to be able to safely ride a motorcycle. No point getting one only to only be able to ride it for a year or two.

Remind me not to drive with you, Gar, ha ha ha...

I could envision him pointing to the features on the car as he was driving, but as Bob suggested...a large amount of editing!!

Did you look at some bikes, yet?

I don't think driving a performance car fast on a racetrack requires 100% concentration 100% of the time. I've been driving before and having a conversation with somebody at the same time. It's just when things get interesting you stop talking until things calm down and you say "now where was I".

Good idea, Bob...there must be some trick to it, or it wouldn't be my multi-zillion $$$$ car he'd be using...ha ha ha...

Lynne G.:I have thought about that before - chatting while literarly bombing around the track. There must be a separate filming process, one going fast and one where he is going much slower, all on the same track, and then the films are integrated for the end result? But I am not a picture taking buff maybe Gary knows as my impression is that he knows about picture taking although I think it is of stationary scenes?

Kinda funny that he is chatting away about the car's features while bombing around the track.

Comment by Gary yesterday

Hi Bob. I hadn't really wondered why. Fortunate they do though eh? If you'd like to get behind the wheel of one maybe the easiest way is with the PlayStation Gran Turismo 4 game. I've had it for years and every once in a while I just have to give it a go!!
