Raikkonen wins 2007 F1 crown

It was all but certain that new sensation Lewis Hamilton (GBR) would win the 2007 F1 World Championships, but in the end it was Kimi Raikkonen (FIN) who won the final race and the title. Go Ferrari.

The 2007 ARTpARTy

Friday night Amy and I hosted another ARTpARTy and the turnout was great again despite the fact that some good friends could not attend. We had some very unique pieces of art and at the end of the night everyone went home with someone else's creation.

Here are some of the artists and their work:

Tim and Berry made this metal wine rack

Michelle and Jordan decided to each do a piece of art

Betsy with her work of art

Sharon and Eric with a a nice piece of pottery

Rick and Mary created these sunflower paintings

John and Terry with cool photography from Europe

Janelle and Martin created an artsy Jack-o-Lantern

Emma showed that she has a passion for art and cycling

Peter and Erin created these artworks, but only Peter could come

Karen and David always surprise with a different genre of art

Monty brought this beautiful painting

This was my contribution to the ARTpARTy

Kelly and Justin made these very cool bookends, and Amy and I were lucky enough to get them at the end. :-)

All talk, no go?

Does Yuri featured in this funny Nike spot really represent a good amount of "athletes" out there? All talk, no go?

My younger brother finally off the couch

My younger brother Manfred was a standout soccer player in our region but has not done much recently in terms of workouts. A few weeks back though he truly came off the couch to run in a big half marathon in Karlsruhe, Germany and managed to run it in sub 2 hours. He even had time to wave to the cameras. Nice.

Prosumer camera

I have wanted a digital SLR camera for quite some time now and I think I have found what I am looking for. The new Canon EOS 40D should give me all and more what I as a wannabe photographer / news editor could possibly want.

iPhone Extreme

There are rumors abound about a pending iPhone Extreme and I would hope that is true as I am waiting for the next generation. Please Steve Jobs, help me out here.
