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!
Okay, think about this for a minute. Think of your high school Chemistry teacher. If it's a 'he,' would you be surprised and shocked if you found out that he had become a viscious, murdering meth cooking criminal who engineered the blowing up of a nursing home in order to kill his boss?
I'm thinking you WOULD be surprised. I know if Mr. Pottorf (my HS Chem teacher) or Mr. Marian broke bad, I'd be surprised. Okay, well, Mr. Marian, anyway. Mr. P? I'd have to think about that.
As Season 5 of AMC's increasingly darker Breaking Bad starts, we're reminded of the events happening in the moments following Walt's checkmate move against Gus, and then the story takes off again at full speed. Walt isn't quite alone in thinking "it's over." Skyler, who knows as much as anyone about what Walt's been up to, sees the explosion at the nursing home as and end to the troubles, even though her fear of her husband is expanding rapidly. Jessie, Saul and eventually Mike (when during a bathrobed chicken feeding session in Mexico he learns of Gus' demise) all think it's truly the "end times" Saul spoke of last season.
But, Walt, and then Hank, know better. It's NOT over. Mr. White has no intention of giving up Mr. Heisenberg, and much like when he learned of Gale's death, DEA Agent on the mend Hank isn't sure the new dead guy is truly the chemist behind the purest form of Meth Albuquerque has ever seen. There isn't a doubt in my mind that Hank will soon figure out what his intuition is somehow telling him, that Walt is in this thing up to his bowler hat.
Some things to keep in mind:
The flash-forward at the beginning of the episode shows Hank at a Denny's, waiting for a gun dealer with whom he has arranged to buy some pretty heavy firepower. As he waits, he's served breakfast, and arranges the bacon into a "52," just like he arranged the vegie bacon into a "50" at the beginning of the Pilot episode. So, since we don't know exactly how far into the future the flash-forward is, it's two years to the day from the events of Episode 1. 5 Season, covering less than 2 years. It's a pretty compressed story, and a change in character that's been amazingly rapid for Walt.
Also remember, 5th season wraps up the story in 16 episodes. Eight shown now and the final eight in the fall of 2013.
Breaking Bad is off to a great start to Season 5, and by the looks of it, a firey finish, with the end in sight.
