Electric car festival 08 25 2007 palo alto

So color me disapointed...

Electric cars appear to be the exclusive domain of hobbyists and crackpot commercial ventures at this point. Still even as hobbyiest go it was pretty disapointing, a BMW 2002 with 800 pounds of lead acid batteries on board is not the sort of thing that makes me think this exercise is worthwhile. The rav4-ev's were cool but they're now 8 years old and climbing, still with about double the range and less silly problems than any of the other vehicles I saw you have to really wonder. Toyota could produce another one tomorrow. And a few weird people in the valley would buy one but to what end? Where's the electric car for me?

For Lucy...

Freaky louis XV couch with monkey king on it...

 

From the palace of the legion of honor... Clearly San Francisco aristocrats collected crap that their children and grandchildren had no idea what to do with. Frankly it's been 250 years and there's still no good place to put it.

Poor little unloved blog...

It's hard to belive that some whoe makes their living basically writting day in and day out would. Neglect this thing as much as I do. It's not like I have nothing to say.
