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!
Season 5 of the fabulous AMC show Mad Men is now history, with center of the Mad Universe, Don Draper, thinking about women, as opposed to the last season's finale, where Don was clearly thinking about one specific woman. That woman was (we assume) his soon to be wife (we assume, though that's not for sure - we just know Don Draper) Megan, and ironically, this year it's his soon-to-be ex-wife Megan's friend, who has approached Don in a bar.
I'd have to go back and check, but it seems like Mad Men is on a "tick-tock" format, where the end of one season sees the firm in trouble, and the next flush. This is the flush year. Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (though one has to wonder about that name - if you watched last week's episode, you know what I'm talking about) is rolling in dough, helped along a little by Lane's departure and the financial windfall that accompanies it. Our Mad men (and women) are not all so flush, obviously, though for the most part, everyone's in good shape.
When all is said and done, this season could probably be subtitled Mad Women, since the girls did especially well this year, Joan and Peggy finishing the season with changes unimaginable at the beginning of the year.
Even though Peggy is no longer at SCDP as we close out Season 5, are we primed for the name of the firm to be called "Sterling Cooper Draper Olson" before the end of Season 6?
I think that's possible.
I just hope when it comes to eyewear, she doesn't consult her one-time mentor Joan Harris for input.
