One more down

We finished the Noida and Long Beach integration yesterday.

Tomorrow we'll get to see how it goes.  I think this was the best job so far but only time will tell ;-)

Queen Mary's

We happened to be in downtown Long Beach today right at the same time as there was a scheduled meeting of the Queen Mary 2 and the Queen Mary.

The Queen Mary is moored at Long Beach permanently while the Queen Mary 2 was scheduled for a curtesy call - they came within about 1/3 of a mile from each other and tooted the horns. It was quite the spectacle and there were many people witnessing it.

Also - in preparation for the Toyota grand prix race in April the barriers were going up to make the street course. It was pretty cool on the way back - there were barriers on both sides of the street - would have made a great picture.

America West

America West dumped us in Phoenix for the night.  Blech!

Rats - only 37MPG - I let my nephew drive and he was peeling out so much for hitting 40.

I switched from a Honda Civic to a Toyota Corolla this week.  I'm trying to see how high I can get the mpg to go on the Toyota.  Without being careful it easily gets 35+ but I'm hoping to get it into the low forties.
