Image of the Moment
--from this thread at cellar.org's image of the day. MSNBC's caption: Balloon pilot Ian Ashpole sails through the sky near Chatteris, England, on Oct. 28. He broke his own world record for the highest flight using 600 toy balloons, rising to 11,000 feet before he cut himself loose and parachuted back down to earth

Did you know I sing to my car? I do. It's kind of a spoken singsong and it goes
    Funky little car, gonna go real far.
    Gonna go real in my funky little car.
    Funky little car, gonna go real far.
    Gonna go real in my funky little car.
I tell myself that the car senses the good vibes and is going to give me many more miles of trouble-free driving because of this song. Maybe it was good I had driven Mo's car instead of mine to get eggs this morning, because I pulled right up next to my car's twin at the supermarket, and I worry that my car would be jealous. ("There can be only one (cute little springlike kermity car)!", that kind of thing.)
