    Thanks! Its only a 15 minute walk from my hotel, so I will def check it out. Hole in the wall? Looks like a think of beauty to me!

    BTW, I read an article recently that rated the top boulangeries in Paris, and most of them are owned by immigrants. I have no idea if the ratings are accurate, but its pretty cool to see how things change.

    Last I heard, Alonso was taking VR46's seat at Yammi.

    I believe that the last guy who won the prestigious best baguette in France award is a young man of Algerian descent. (He gets to supply the Elysee Palace for a year, if I remember correctly how it works.)

    I was thinking racing for Haas in F1 would give him a better chance at winning the Indy 500 with a Haas car vs a Mcclaren car

    Haas doesn't have any Indy experience, even though it was dismal, McLaren does have some Indy Experience. I would go with McLaren at Indy.

    Really? Newman-Haas racing ring a bell for you?

    That's Carl Haas, not Gene Haas.

    I think McLaren has more resources to start a new team in another series.

    Yes it does, probably my favorite team ever, had some of the best racers ever. The owner was my favorite actor. Bourdais won 4 Champ Car titles in a row there, other championship drivers were Mario and Michael Andretti, and Nigel Mansell. That team won 107 IndyCar wins, and eight championships. And they had fun doing it.

    Agreed, but for purely selfish reasons, I'm happy to hear some news.

    I heard about the induced coma so was worried something turned when I saw your frowny face. Terrible situation all around.

    Small world. A friend of my parents leaves his car in my parking garage when he travels, as he's gone for months at a time. He came a couple of hours ago by during MotoGP qualifying to drop off the car.

    Him: - "What race is that? You know, I don't like that stuff. Did you hear about the kid in Belgium a couple of weeks ago?"

    Me: - "Yeah, the young French F2 driver."

    Him: - "Yes, we knew him well."

    He then proceeds to tell me how he and his wife were having dinner with the guy who sponsored Anthoine Hubert that evening, right after he got the news. They noticed he wasn't all there and asked him what was wrong. They all live in the same small town. He was well-liked.

    I was hoping Hulk was going to take that seat ... not impressed by that decision, Haas.

    Kubica out. I always liked the guy but he wasn't the same after the crash.
