I'm in the Okanagan for a few days. Drinking, wearing short clothing, getting baked by the sun, living on the balconies, listening to cranked up music, reading, eating fruit, the way things should be. It was nice driving here -- just me, loud music, windows rolled up tight to keep the soundwaves in, the road, some mountains and trees, a bit of snow even, an ugly car, but some damn fine sparkplugs. I must say, my sparkplugs are amazing.
