Very good Liberty Media ... keep concentrating on Social Media and "engaging young fans" ... while the rest of us are more interested in progress from those machines which go around in circles (scrap that, we are not talking Nascar) ... the show which Liberty Media is going to take to new heights (scrap that, we are not talking Indycar either). 

Cars which can follow closely, great tracks with excellent overtaking opportunities, noisy engines and the best driver in the cockpit, not a paid or sponsor padded robot.   There! ... that sounds more realistic (insert dripping sarcasm smiley somewhere about here!!!).

All the best,
Cal :)

FYI - in case you haven't heard, Twitter is the latest safety breach and they are strongly recommending everyone with an account should change their password and in case you use the same password somewhere else, you should also change those.

I wouldn't go on twitter even if they paid me, especially after what I've read about it.

I go on Twitter. Like most things it is what you make it. Can be a complete zoo, or a decent way to keep up with friends. Lots of politics, lots of art, lots of fandoms, lots of trolls. You just control who you engage with.

Totally agree.  Twitter is a tool.  Depends on how you use it, what you get out of it.  Not terribly dangerous, but can at times be addictive.  For example iff there is a catastrophe or crisis in the world that I have an interest in, Twitter is where I go.  If I can’t watch an F1 race live, but still want to keep up with the action or get some inside info, Twitter is where I go.

That said, I have no idea about Instagram and Snapchat.   :DntKnw: :DntKnw:

Instagram is Twitter with pictures or short videos instead of tweets. They use captions, but it's the picture that counts. Snapchat is Instagram but dirtier because the picture supposedly automatically disappears after x number of seconds; but we all know nothing ever completely disappears from the internet.

I've never gotten into Twitter. It's always been a security nightmare. Besides that, I've never felt the need to tell the whole world what I had for breakfast.   ;)

Why microwave?  Pancakes are practically as fast in the pan made fresh... I can whip up a stack of French Toast in about 5minutes.  Pancakes another 2-3min.

In that case, can I order a spanish omelette 6 hours prior to the green light this coming Sunday? ... Also, if you could make it "McLaren Orange" ... that would be a nice touch!!!  ... oh yes, and I will be eating it while sitting on a Deck Chair!!!  :DD

All the best,
