Good to see them there. This is Car #81 which did quite well for a while.

It’s an M8 GTE and it is a testbed for a new road-going G series.

As the shadows stretch over the Dunlop Curves, the N°81 BMW M8 GTE finds itself in the top three of the LM GTE-Pro class in the 2018 24 Heures du Mans with night still to come.

It is coming out in November as the M850i xDrive. 4.4, 4×4, 530 bhp.

Expect at least a buck and a quarter.

Cars for the rich are more profitable, you know.

At least I’ll get to see them.

I like this guy…

He, she or it is just fabulously creepy!

Don’tcha think? Plus, it’s a new one for me! Never heard of this critter.

Boris’ take on…Nessie?  From what I’ve been able to find out, this is supposed to be Loch Ness’ most famous denizen.

Maybe, maybe not. Personally I think it is another creature entirely. Maybe one that Boris saw. People are so hollow these days.

I would have treasured being at the 24 Hours … even just once.

Such things cannot happen.

Congratulations, Toyota… just fabulous.

The inimitable Lancia Delta High Fidelity Integrale. Best rally car ever.

snip from Wikipedia (sorry)

A special Delta HF Integrale version was a four-wheel drive hot hatch with a turbocharged petrol engine. Modified versions of the HF dominated the World Rally Championship, scoring 46 WRC victories overall and winning the Constructors Championship a record six times in a row from 1987 to 1992, in addition to Drivers’ Championship titles for Juha Kankkunen (1987 and 1991) and Miki Biasion (1988 and 1989).

hf logoSix times in a row. You may not realize how hard that is to achieve, what with other marques spending millions to beat you… No one has come close this record to this day, twenty-odd years on. The Group B versions were a whole ’nuther thing and even more exciting.

Too delicious for most.

Speedo? LOL

 

 

 

 

Damn that is hot.

 

Oh, Carlo, how we love that voodoo that you do so well.

And look what you made Lancia do…

They’ve gone and made the all new 037 R8!

Thank you Team Abarth.

We can dream.

I’ll take one of each, please.

Whoa.

United States – North Korea Singapore Summit Video (English) (Destiny Pictures)

0xe27b26996a6c354de04b3e14a5f5b4bccb628b2f
Published on Jun 12, 2018

“A Story of Opportunity” HD English version: https://youtu.be/XxBB1Il5rCo Korean version: https://youtu.be/Y3EBABDEPkk

This is the English version of the video “trailer” that President Donald J. Trump showed Chairman Kim Jong Un during their historic summit on 6/12/18. This is a rip from the official White House press conference live stream, where they showed the video to reporters before the President took questions.

Transcript:

Seven billion people inhabit planet Earth. Of those alive today, only a small number will leave a lasting impact. And only the very few will make decisions or take actions that renew their homeland and change the course of history.

History may appear to repeat itself for generations, cycles that never seem to end. There have been times of relative peace, and times of great tension. While this cycle repeats, the light of prosperity and innovation has burned bright for most of the world.

History is always evolving, and there comes a time when only a few are called upon to make a difference. But the question is, what difference will the few make? The past doesn’t have to be the future. Out of the darkness can come the light. And the light of hope can burn bright.

What if, a people that share a common and rich heritage, can find a common future? Their story is well known, but what will be their sequel?

Destiny Pictures presents a story of opportunity. A new story, a new beginning. One of peace. Two men, two leaders, one destiny. A story about a special moment in time, when a man is presented with one chance that may never be repeated. What will he choose? To show vision and leadership? Or not?

There can only be two results: one of moving back, or one of moving forward. A new world can begin today. One of friendship, respect, and goodwill. Be part of that world, where the doors of opportunity are ready to be opened, investment from around the world, where you can have medical breakthroughs, an abundance of resources, innovative technology, and new discoveries.

What if? Can history be changed? Will the world embrace this change? And when can this moment in history begin? It comes down to a choice. On this day. In this time. At this moment. The world will be watching, listening, anticipating, hoping.

Will this leader choose to advance his country and be part of a new world? Be the hero of his people? Will he shake the hand of peace and enjoy prosperity like he has never seen? A great life? Or more isolation? Which path will be chosen?

Featuring President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un, in a meeting to remake history. To shine in the sun. One moment, one choice, what if? The future remains to be written.

This is lovely. From all my many moons researching North Korea, I can see Kim being positively influenced by this trailer in it’s Korean version. He was, after all, mighty impressed with the glitz and flashiness of a K Pop experience not long ago…

Rock on Mr Trump. Don’t forget the 25 million North Korean prisoners of North Korea! Here’s hopinng the “relatively brief” discussion of them was meaningful.

Peace!

be well

There is a beautiful Irish poem that some attribute to St. Dallan in the 6th century. Shortly after he became blind, St. Dallan wrote the first line to this poem: “Be Thou My Vision, O Lord.” This beautiful Irish hymn stands for faith, hope and the relationship we have with the Lord in our lives. Thanks for watching!! 🙂 ~ Camille

Fingerstyle Guitar Player Camille Nelson is a classically trained multi-instrumentalist. Her music is fun and fresh, offering feel-good beats and moving melodies that any audience can easily relate to. Her pop/rock/folk style, which was influenced by artists including U2 and Alanis Morissette, evolved to her current style of percussive guitar elements integrated with violin and ethereal vocals, which has marked her as a fingerstyle guitar player. Camille’s first album, First Words, was released in 2009 and was engineered and produced by Nashville producer, Giles Reaves, for the independent label Dimmi Records. Reaves is currently working with Camille recording her fingerstyle work. Much of Camille’s music relates to her extensive world travel. She speaks German and Italian and has been to over 60 countries—gaining multicultural experiences that have strongly influenced her song-writing. She has lived around the world during and after earning her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Utah and a doctorate degree from Gonzaga University. She is now a college professor teaching MBA courses in management, communication, and leadership. Camille Nelson has worked with various fingerstyle guitar players including Andy Mckee, Billy McLaughlin, Antoine Dufour, Stephen Bennett, and Kaki King. She was deeply inspired by works by Michael Hedges and in particular, Andy Mckee’s “Drifting” and Kaki King’s “Playing with Pink Noise,” whose pieces both feature percussive elements that Camille also integrates into her compositions. She also incorporates and layers violin and vocal tracks into her songs.. As Camille Nelson’s guitar teacher, Kaki King helped Camille develop and master her guitar skills while encouraging Camille to continue working on more original compositions establishing her as a fingerstyle guitar player. Camille Nelson has performed all around the United States and various parts of the world. She completed a tour around Ireland where she performed in several venues displaying her fingerstyle guitar work and original compositions. She has also performed in a variety of venues around Europe where she has earned praise as a fingerstyle guitar player and pop/rock singer. Camille Nelson is also a well-rounded athlete that has earned praise as a competitive runner and triathlete having run over 15 marathons, including the Boston Marathon, Great Wall Marathon, and the Antarctica Marathon. Born and raised in Salt Lake, Camille is the youngest of six similarly musical children. She was strongly influenced by her father, a violist, and her mother, a professional opera singer. Camille continues to make music while she teaches to help further her goal of motivating and touching people. With Camille’s work in music as well as in academia, Camille’s dream is to use her Ph.D in communication and her music skills to impact people through her creativity and music as she has been deeply impacted by the music and people that have had a profound impact on her life.

Camille contacted me on twitter a cpl three days ago and I am just getting to it but I am glad because she is one heck of a picker!

What a cool style… picked up my energy a nice bit, eh!
