I hope this will be fun, funny, complicated, opinionated and occasionally irritating. Say what you will. Agree, disagree, complain, rant, rave. It's fine. If I say something that offends you, go somewhere else. If you agree with me or any of my musings, please share this with your lifestyle compatriots.

In London with the President: A Vanilla Report
The corner of Hyde Park is right across the street from my hotel, so rather than run the treadmill in the dreary fitness center this evening like I did last night, I decided to go run Hyde Park. The weather's absolutely amazing right now and it's nice to get out and see the sights.
So I ran the six mile loop around the park and as I did so began to hear helicopters overhead. Soon, I saw a bunch of motorcycle cops driving past, and then I realized what was about to happen. Obama is in town and had dinner last night with the Queen and spoke today to both Houses. It's been all the news has been talking about here. Well, guess what? His motorcade drove right past, secret service Suburbans and the President's Stretch Cadillac (all travel with Air Force One in a military cargo jet--well, the limo has a "garage" in the back of Air Force One). Pretty cool!
