So we had our party last weekend and it was a blast. Lot's of people, much to drink, and a general good time. All week long I have been feeling like crap however. I was initially blaming it on the Patron, however I found out yesterday that one of my guests also has the flu this week (F.U. Greg). It almost feels like I am coming down with strep or something like that...flu or what not. I am feverish, slightly delusional, and totally out of it. This really sucks for two reasons, the Van Halen concert - which there is no way I could make it through that, and I leave this weekend for the SEMA show in Las Vegas...there is probably no way I will make it through that the way I feel right now - so I must focus on getting well, really quickly. I don't want to be sick out in Vegas. I will try to get some things done at work here and head back home to sleep.
Poor me....anyway I wanted to let you know I will be posting to the blog all throughout the SEMA show with my new iPhone, you knew it would happen eventually, since apple is my dark lord. Check back often for pictures and commentary of all the wacky happenings going down at SEMA, and Vegas on Halloween.

Grandview Man Charged in Wreck that Killed Two
By KEVIN HOFFMANN The Kansas City Star
Authorities today charged a Grandview man with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in connection with a wreck last month that killed a grandfather and his granddaughter.Jackson County Prosecutor Jim Kanatzar announced the charges against William K. Johnson, 49, this morning at a press conference. According to court documents filed in the case, Johnson was driving a 1985 Chevrolet pickup on Raytown Road when the truck struck the bicycles of Larry and Sierra Gaunt. Larry Gaunt, 59, was pronounced dead at the scene. Sierra, 14, was taken to a hospital where she later died. The court documents allege that Johnson was speeding before he struck the cyclists and that his truck drifted off the roadway due to inattention. Johnson overcompensated, the documents allege, and the truck skidded before impacting the bikes. "The majority of vehicular fatalities do not result in criminal charges," Kanatzar said. "There are times when a driver's actions constitute a crime and that driver needs to be held accountable." The charges are both felonies that carry maximum sentences of seven years in prison. The area where the wreck happened is near Longview Lake south of Harry S. Truman Drive. Family members have said that Larry Gaunt, and avid cyclist, and Sierra were training for the MS 150 bike ride when the wreck occurred. It would have been Sierra's first ride in the event.
