If only the federal government put as much effort into evicting illegal aliens as they do into evicting citizens from their own land. WTF is wrong with our government?

It's a David versus Goliath kind of day.

As I pursue a full time Digital Media or Web Analyst position, I often find job requirements that no longer apply in today's web strategies. With the digitized matching of resumes to positions, I have of course downgraded my resume, but when it comes to an interview, do you tell them what they want to hear about yesterday, or tell them what they need to do to get back in the game today?

As Gov Christie said, he had no knowledge of the event. Same with Colbert and that tweet. grin

How many of you have THAT person, that tweaks their current job position in their LinkedIn profile once a week or more prompting automated emails and recurring requests in your feed urging you to congratulate THAT person on their "NEW" job? Don't you hate that guy?

Good on Porsche for making things right. I know the GM recall is in the forefront because of the number of people it affects, but from a cost per unit perspective, this is a huge chunk of change to have to swallow for any manufacturer.

I feel bad for the Mazda and Bimmer owners in this video  (Did I really just say I feel bad for a BMW driver?). The owner of the Lambo? Not so much.  
It unfolds like a slow-motion train wreck, only there are no trains. And this may have been more expensive.

I once had a guy pass me on the dirt shoulder on U.S. 395 and he didn't realize there was a curb starting at the upcoming intersection and ended up snapping the wheel off his pickup when he hit it. That was good, this is better.

The Incredibles is still one of my all time faves! I can't wait for a sequel. Cars 2 left a bad faded my love for Cars, though, hopefully 3 can salvage what made me fall in love with that movie all over again, but not likely. The appeal was my love of Route 66. Expanding outside of that realm left those roots as forgotten by the wayside as Radiator Springs was in the beginning of the first movie.

Story
Introduction
Auto enthusiast, toy collector, train buff, comic book geek, Hot Wheels aficionado, Mountain Dew junkie, camper, hiker, fourwheeler and photographer. 

When I have time (rarely), I write about cars on my blog, BrakingForCars.com. I also post random thoughts for my own personal entertainment and venting whenever the mood strikes at VernonHeywood.com. Mostly I write automotive SEO content and reviews for TKCarsites as well as freelance material for various other sources.

I antagonize annoying people for sport, push the buttons of those I love because I love them, and have a severe Peter Pan complex. Complete professional in the workplace, but off the clock I'm not gonna grow up and you can't make me!

I'm gonna go play with my trains now...
