I just got back from a road trip to Dubai and just want to but some notes out there if anyone plans to do it.

Most of it will pertain for the Saudi leg.

The road is long.
You will get lost in Al-Hasa/Hofuf on the way to UAE
All roads signs in Saudi point to Riyadh, visit
Mecca, surgery
The toilets are deadly, website
bring a pair of boots.
The road is long and straight.
Have a car that can do 160km+.
Customs will be a bitch.
103.8 and 91.4 are great radio stations that you can listen to.
GPS is iffy in Saudi as well when it comes to detours but reliable.
Your GPS will commit suicide in Dubai from all their detours and new roads.
You will get lost in Al-Hasa/Hofuf on the way back to Kuwait
A radar detector would be a good thing to have.
Saudi has speed traps near the resedential areas (Damam, Al-Hasa)
Speed limit in UAE is 149 in Abu Dhabi and 139 in Dubai!
Look like a Saudi to avoid customs issues.
Arrange your luggage nicely so they can easily remove it and inspect it.

After reading this article: At Netflix, order thumb vacation time has no limits explaining how NetFlix doesn’t have an attendance policy or even count the number of days you take a vacation as long as you do the work that is required of you. And it has been working for them. They have good retention of their employees, reached nearly a billion dollar of sales and are a great company to work for.

The Truth about Aston Martin

The Truth About Cars has a great article on the AstonMartin deal. Giving details on why they separated from Ford and the other share holders and the future of the company.

Looks like AstonMartin is going to be a supercar powerhouse now.

I also like to mention that The Truth About Cars is one of the best car websites on the net. I really enjoy their editorials and car reviews. It has been a great filler for Top Gear in car reviews and also news insights on the auto industry.

I haven’t done a Hello Kitty post in a while, viagra but this one should make up for it. It is a order 39041749, buy more about 39239366,00.htm”>Hello Kitty Fire Extinguisher!

It just boggles the mind on what these people can do. I think that is why I love it to so much, she is the epitome of branding. She never gets old, won’t be in rehab, will just be perfect and smiling and whoring herself out to every type of merchandise.

Reading this Business Week article on Lego is pretty cool. It discusses how they are the 3rd largest toy company in the world and employ around 6000 employees and just have 100 designers working for them. Really big numbers for just a simple company that makes bricks.

They are now going to a strategy to allow the customer to be control, myocarditis they will be able to design their own anything via Lego software share them with the rest of the world and even be able to buy the necessary parts to build it.

That sounds great, buy information pills but looking back at my youth one of the fun things about Legos was not following the instructions, or even knowing or having a full plan of what you are going to build. I would just know I was going to build a house, but as I started building more ideas came to my head and it would start changing shape to a battle cruiser, or just go crazy with it and make it in to a huge town/fort thing.

I guess that explains how I think, can’t stay focused on one thought have to jump like a million ways around it. Hell even when I followed instructions I would build something a couple steps down then go back to stage one.

I want to get back into it now, but the prices for them are just sky high it just doesn’t seem worth it to start it up.
