Ducati North America – Heart Forward & Successful | Ultimate MotorCycling

Ducati North America – Heart Forward & Successful | Ultimate MotorCycling | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
Following a record year of sales, Ducati North America looks forward to 2013 due to the release of the Hyperstrada, the Panigale 1199R, the Hypermotard SP and the Diavel Strada.

Via Vicki Smith for Ducati.net
wanderingsalsero's insight:

Sometimes I'm not sure I like that ass-up-in-the-air look.  But generally I like these Ducatis.  This thing to remember is that you don't have to have these large displacement bikes to have fun.  Even 200 cc's is plenty to get into trouble.

Non-politician wins presidential straw poll

Non-politician wins presidential straw poll | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
Dr. Ben Carson, the famed brain surgeon, won a presidential straw poll conducted at the Western Conservative Summit, beating out other Washington outsiders former Hewlett-Packard Chief Executive Officer Carly Fiorina and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
Carson received 26 percent of the 871 votes cast, with Fiorina at 23 percent and Walker was at 22 percent. Texas [...]
wanderingsalsero's insight:

I don't really have any opinion one way or the other about Carson. What I find interesting is that Huckabee got so few votes. And I'm glad that Bush got so few.

 

I also wonder why Paul wasn't mentioned.

What it Costs to Live in Cambodia

What it Costs to Live in Cambodia | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
When it comes to the monthly cost of living and the ease of getting a visa to stick around for more than two months, Cambodia has huge advantages.
wanderingsalsero's insight:

SE Asia is nice in general but Thailand and Cambodia have some unique flavors in common. Thailand is especially unique because it's the only country in SE Asia that's never actually had a war (even though they have sent troops to other wars).

 

On the other hand, Cambodia is unique because the Khmer Rouge killed almost an entire generation so, as the writer say, the 'gene pool' is somewhat low in quality.

 

But I can tell you that there's something dreamy about the ambiance of all that region and especially Thailand and Cambodia.

FREE BOOKS: 100 legal sites to download literature | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
Looking for the next great book to sink your teeth into? Look no further. Below are over 100 links to websites that provide free e-books on a huge variety of topics.
wanderingsalsero's insight:

I actually do not have an eBook reader (such as a Kindle) but I still like to bookmark sites like these. I love to read and know the value of it even if I don't do it as much as I should.

 

I'm not talking about reading stuff on the internet. I'm talking about reading the classics. The great literature of years past. There's just something about reading Jules Verne or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle that still shine bright and maintains it emotional gravity even though the authors are long dead.

 

See?

 

I'm even writing in that style and it's only because I just got through reading the first 3 pages of a mystery by Arthur Conan Doyle.

 

I haven't been through all this resource but there is supposedly some science-fiction in there (my favorite genre). And there's some history too. I love history.

 

So, check it out if you know you should read more than you do.

Louis Vuitton and Gucci’s nightmares come true: Wealthy shoppers don't want flashy logos anymore

Louis Vuitton and Gucci’s nightmares come true: Wealthy shoppers don't want flashy logos anymore | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
Big spenders are looking for unique pieces no one recognizes. And that’s bad news for these titans of luxury.

I WILL toot my own horn here. I saw this headline and it made immediate sense to me today. I've LONG said that I didn't like polo shirts with this silly little lizards and polo ponies, etc. on them. To me, I think, "If I'm an individual (which I am) why would I want somebody else's name on MY clothes?"

 

Yeah.... when you see me coming, I'm not a clone of anybody. I think a lot of people are getting intuitively tired of the that aspect of 'pop fashion'. People are going to start recognizing quality, creativity with basics, and individuality now.

I didn't even want to read the article. I already knew, in my heart and intellectually, that this beautiful young lady was brutally murdered by the scum that congregate in our nation's capital. Honestly, I don't that whatever this report reveals will make one bit of difference. Our government is morally 'broke'.

This young lady has a beautiful message and she's an example of a phenomenon that I predict we're going to see more of in the coming months. The real spirit of America, of the American Dream, is alive still in the hearts of millions of Americans of all colors all across our land. Some of them have been distracted by the evils of pop-culture but I think they're waking up. But the core spirit of the American Dream comes from the good side of the Universe. Even the Bible says that in the End Times (read...'now') there will be miracles and preaching of the word of God accompanied by signs and miracles. This is one of them.

Yeah, I think they're real. The question is: What's the nature of the intelligence that's driving them (and/or made them...keeping in might that the two might not be the same thing).

 

I think our government is 'in' this somehow...at a very high, 'need to know' level. So naturally the people who don't know what's going on have sincere, plausible deniability.

What it's like to live in Saigon, Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City) and what the monthly living expenses are, from web designer and travel blogger James Clark.
wanderingsalsero's insight:

I saw this guys site on another, similar, site I was following. I really identify with what this fellow says about Saigon (it'll always be Saigon to me b/c I was there during the war[that we started]).

 

What he says about the Vietnamese food is surely true. Next to Thai food and Indian food, I probably love Vietnamese food the best. And if the women are still like they were when I was there, they're nice too.

 

I think in many ways the Vietnamese are the most westernized of all the SE Asian countries.

Long time, no post. I've been busy editing my book, which is now up to 80,000 words. In the meantime, Sihanoukville continues to grow at an almost alarming rate. Apartments are being built all over the place. Why? It's because of the influx of workers and residents.

wanderingsalsero's insight:

This soon-to-be-released book by Robert Schnieder will probably be very interesting. If for no other reason than that he lives in a very exciting place...Cambodia. And particularly Sihanoukville.

 

I've only been to Cambodia once, back around 1971 when it was still a war-torn country. I went to Phnom Penh and it was really a dump them. But it's changed a LOT since then.

 

Think of Thailand before all the drunkards and sex-traffic screwed it up and...that's Cambodia (although admittedly Cambodia will probably be the same in 10 years.

 

But for now, it's the same basic land, the same basic mentality, and the same basic idyllic lifestyle. I would love to see Sihanoukville someday but until then, Robert does a marvelous job in showing and telling what it's all about.

This is a pretty interesting movie. Simple plot and a somewhat abrupt and only semi-plausible ending but....it's a good examle of the kinds of things governments do. It's well known (by anybody who can read) that the US government has been doing stuff like this to US citizens (and others) since as far back as post WW2 (possibly even earlier). The CIA and DARPA are probably the biggest ghouls in stuff like this. Evil is real, boys and girls. Very real.
