The 2012 Toyota Sienna (Wow, what a Minivan!)
Man, I loved driving this. Comfy, ROOMY. Let me say that again. ROOMY. Visibility galore! The eletronic goodies and great mileage. Here's the virtual test drive vid:
The 2012 Toyota Tacoma!
Okay, I'm in love again. This time with a truck!
You know, I've never owned a pickup before, and quite frankly, if I bought a 2012 Toyota Tacoma, I could probably still say that! This is NOT what you think of when you think "pickup truck." It's plush, comfy, technologically sharp, and a truly awesome ride.
The 2012 Toyota Camry!
Wow, Toyota has really outdone itself with the new redesigned (I like to say reimagined) Camry. Roomy, sporty, classy and an awesome driving machine. You've GOT to test drive one of these babies at Larry Miller Toyota.
The 2012 Toyota Prius!
I am really excited about the 2012 Prius. I'd never driven one of these amazing cars before, so when Mark Mauer and the gang at Larry Miller Toyota handed me the keys, they didn't have to ask twice!
The ride is so smooth, and you wanna talk ROOMY? PLENTY of room to get confortable in the Prius. Being a techie, I have to admit that I was wowed by how much detail I got about the operation of the power system while driving, all at a quick glance. You can see very precisely how your driving habits affect the mileage you get in the Prius, and I quickly learned how to use the hybrid system to get 50+ mpg. With gas prices climbing daily, this is an incredible opportunity to maximize your driving dollars.
Roomy, high-tech, comfortable and eco-friendly. I'm loving the new 2012 Toyota Prius!
"Everybody Dies" is a line House said a number of times. Of course, he's right, but this time he was talking about himself. I have to admit, the parade of former associates and loved ones (including a never born loved-one) was not a good sign. I hate clip shows, and also have a strong distaste for "cameo" appearances of past stars. But this one, well written by the amazing House writing staff, moved the story forward and wrapped it up nicely.
Sure, House dying in a burning building he himself set on fire (though that was never actually mentioned - it was necessary when you understand his plan) had a certain justice built in. A career built on cheating death, for House to let death come to him made sense. The funeral, with friends and family eulogizing him, was decidely unreal, both in terms of the set design and the drab, color and lighting. It was almost shot in black and white. All the more contrast at the very end, with our heroes riding motorcycles through a heartbreakingly colorful landscape, living out Wilson's final months on earth together. The funeral didn't feel real. And it wasn't.
House's last words in the burning factory, "I can change," meant everything. It was a promise, sealed with his "death," Wilson's telling him he can never practice medicine again freeing him from the life that needed changing. Sure, we don't see House walking at the end, and it's distinctly possible that his cane is attached to the motorcycle, but to not show us such an iconic prop, a tool that defined Dr. Gregory House as much as any medical instrument, at the end must be implying he doesn't intend to use it anymore. Before riding off into Wilson's sunset on two very cool (and most certainly expensive) motorcycles, House doesn't pop a couple Vicodin, he puts his helmet on.
Who knows, maybe his statement in the first episode of the season, that he wanted to leave medicine and start over as a physicist was foreshadowing. If anyone can prove String Theory, after all, it's House.
