Friday Snippets

I’m on house cleaning duty today. Tomorrow we have our first open-for-inspection in our efforts to sell up and live with a view. Walls to paint, windows to clean. You know the drill. Grrrrr.


Last time I covered a writeup by the Lienerts (Detroit News) I bagged the daylights out of them for writing such drivel. It would therefore be a little hypocritical of me to praise their latest effort just because they find the 9-7x to be better value for money, than the Volvo XC90. By all recent accounts (and there’s been a bunch of ’em – check the Feb 2006 archive), the 9-7x is a great SUV and is a vast improvement over its GM siblings. ’nuff said.

Cars! Cars! Cars! actually has a great review of this review.


Thanks to JWV for this screenshot from the latest 9-5 ad in the USA. Love the ad. Would love a 1024×768 version of this:

The greatest game the world has ever known, Australian Rules Football, starts its 2006 preseason series tonight. Welcome back footy. It’s been way too long.
