I don't bother much lately with the news. I'd prefer to watch a binge session of classic Benny Hill episodes right now. He keeps me laughing, the 'ol bugger!

So psyched about this! I'm hoping to feel some of this excitement here at the Tesla Gigafactory!

Things are ramping up here as we make part of the batteries for the cars, so this is cool news. It's finally happening!

H/T to +Derek Ross​ for the post!
The first 30 Model 3's are going to be delivered tomorrow and we can watch via Livestream!

It was cool seeing a Tesla Model X right at the entrance to Northern Nevada Pride this weekend. It was fully decked out and we got to sit in it. The staff was excellent and I was thrilled to see Tesla being there for the LGBTQ community, especially since I work out at the Tesla Gigafactory. The car was amazing, and totally luxurious (and those gull wing doors!)

I might buy this original at some point. It spoke to me today, as I checked out all the Dickerson Road awesomeness in Reno, So much incredible art and so many cool studio spaces. I hadn't discovered this hidden part of downtown yet, so it was a revelation. This work reminded me of ethereal dreams, and maybe a little bit of the whimsy of Danny Elfman scores for some of those awesome Tim Burton films. But mostly, I was enamored with the bent trees and ghost figure.

The artist is Jessica Fry and I love all of her works I saw. Lovely work!

Mural art on the side of a coffeehouse I just discovered in Midtown Reno -- See See Motor Coffee Company, 131 Pine St. It has badass motorcycles inside and a spectacularly cool vibe. I need to check it out!

Canada Sesquicentennial - 150 Years Young

Wow, today should see some MASSIVE parties in Canada, as they celebrate their 150th anniversary today on Canada Day. Cool! I hope all my Canadian friends have a stunning, amazing, creative, awesome, splendid, stupendous day and that the parties carry on into the wee hours. 150 years! Yes!

Canada Day (French: Fête du Canada) is the national day of Canada. A federal statutory holiday, it celebrates the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the Constitution Act, 1867 (then called the British North America Act, 1867), which united the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada.

Originally called Dominion Day (French: Le Jour de la Confédération), the holiday was renamed in 1982, the year the Canada Act was passed. Canada Day celebrations take place throughout the country, as well as in various locations around the world, attended by Canadians living abroad.

How Many Hours Did You Work This Week?

Just a simple poll, gauging how many hours most of us worked. I usually work 48 hours each week, out at the Tesla Gigafactory. But I added 24 hours OT, for a total of 72. So, on average, how many hours do you work each week?

Note: No judgement for anyone looking for work, or not working, or out on disability or unable to work etc. I'm simply trying to see how many hours we spend at work throughout the world...

Hot Wheels MONGOOSE & SNAKE Drag Race Set

For all of us who grew up with Hot Wheels. this is pretty damn bad ass. I'm not sure, but it feels like my lifelong infatuation with cars probably started with my love of my Hot Wheels cars, and with my Tonka trucks. I'd love to find a MIB set of this!
