Video Sunday... musically speaking, took a little turn from the normal. It's music. Odd music, and interesting music.

The January/February Market Report was posted for Gwinnett County on Monday. The blog points to the report on Here is a direct link.

I found out that after this year's cancellation, the Dakar Rallye is moving to South America. The pic is from flickr and are credited on the post.

With sadness, I learned of the death of Boyd Coddington. He contributed a lot to the world of hot rods even for those that weren't fans of American Hot Rod. The art of his creations is self evident.
