If I had a crazy amount of Money.

If I somehow won or inherited a crazy amount of money I would go on a spending spree (well first i would take 80% or so and invest it to that i have enough for the rest of my life) and the rest i would spend on high end gizmos gadgets and cool things.
I thought i would dream about all the material items I would like. but dont really need. cause its fun to dream. so here is a list!

Aprox $255,000 USD
Now I must say I love this car.. its not the fastest car in the world but I do believe it is one of the most beautiful.
not that 6.0 Liters of V12 goodness and 520HP wont do me for a while.

I havent ridden a bike in a while but would love to get back into it.

BMW R1200 GS Adventure
My real first bike was really my dads a R100GSPD, a great bike. i miss it. but my dad moved on to bigger and faster things

Here comes the Future!

I love new technologies and gadgets that make me feel like we are in the future
here are a few i just found out about

Hitachi EMIEW Robot

The Driverless Car!

Here is a ripped off description from another site
"CHANGCHUN, China — At its hometown show last week, China's First Auto Works wowed the locals with a demonstration of what was described as the country's first unmanned vehicle — not counting spacecraft, of course.

The vehicle in question was a specially modified version of FAW's Hongqi (Red Flag) HQ3 sedan, which was unveiled last year as a concept and bears a startling resemblance to the Toyota Crown Majesta, not to mention an older Hyundai XG350.

FAW tested the driverless sedan at speeds of up to 37 mph but said the car can actually reach a top speed of 93 mph. The demonstration took place at the Northeast Asia Investment and Trade Expo here, according to the Shanghai Daily.

According to the newspaper, the specially equipped HQ3, which monitors the road via two onboard cameras and receives its instructions from a computer, "has a strong ability to recognize the environment around it and tackle turnoffs [and] street crossings, as well as broken lines instantly. It's also able to adapt to changes of driving attitude and natural lighting, as well as shadows of trees and bridges."

I will Try to keep posting cool things i find on the net!
stay tuned

Boy? Girl?

This coming Thursday, Jennifer has an ultrasound , she will be 20weeks by then
and hopefully we will find out if we will have a boy or a girl.

I cant say what i would like more.. only because i dont know. sometimes I hope its a boy.. sometimes a girl.. but in the end it doesnt really matter. i really hope its healthy and normal (normal for us)

I did feel quite jealous when our friends Becca & Drew told us they were having a boy (they are about 2 weeks more pregnant then Jen & I)

anyways I will keep you posted. its exciting and i cant wait to find out.. and i hope i actually find out. We will try and get a video of the ultrasound and maybe i will post it online
