Warning: This is going to be a little confusing. My name is Drew McManus. And I have a friend whose name is also Drew McManus. I live in Northern California and Drew2 lives in Chicago. (He has to be Drew2... Continue reading

I've read before about the Mojave Air and Spaceport, which is among other things a massive parking lot, storage facility, and pick-a-part boneyard for commercial airliners. Mental Floss has some of the best photos I've seen of this giant facility... Continue reading

It looks like you shot this photo from your motorcade. Would the Secret Service not let you get out of the SUV?

As a mobile professional, I am in different places almost every day of the week. I think I know just about every coffee shop in the San Francisco Bay Area that has free WiFi (well, at least on the peninsula).... Continue reading

The always-interesting Infrastructurist blog has a great article on the various types of highway interchanges. Even though I grew up in Southern California, I had no idea there were so many of them. My favorite: The Lofthouse: A roundabout over... Continue reading

Wow. Fascinating. You should post close-up photos of some of the details. I'd love to see what some of those little people are doing. This is really cool, Sarah. That's going to be a killer dining room. Love it.

Be sure to ask lots of questions and make little suggestions. I hear artists really like that.

Almost every Michael Jackson song from the Thriller album reminds me of some event in my teenage years. My friends and I saw him perform more than once both solo and as part of The Jacksons. I can recall watching... Continue reading

I've been doing a lot of thinking and talking about the economics of sports tickets lately, both as a NHL season ticket holder and for a side-project I've been working on. So, this tidbit caught my eye: Tickets to the... Continue reading

Actually, one of the great things about In-n-Out is the quality of the food. Everything is fresh. You can actually see them hand-leafing heads of lettuce, slicing fresh tomatoes, and cutting up potatoes to make fries. The shakes are made from real ice cream. I'm not saying the food is "good for you"--it is certainly a high-calorie and high-fat meal--but it sure is good.

I'm no genius when it comes to picking individual stocks, so I won't comment there, but I do have this general observation: It's been in the news recently that hybrid car sales have plummeted as gasoline prices have gone down. Car companies have shifted much of their R&D to technologies for which customers are not going to pay a premium. I expect this will have a long term impact on margins.

As a long-time owner of Bose noise-canceling headphones, let me tell you they are worth every penny. I use them on airplanes, on BART, on Caltrain, etc. Buy yourself a pair today, Sarah. The newer models even have an optional cellphone microphone thingy for taking calls. Pretty cool.

Thanks for the note, Kelset! I've been trying to find a way to stop phone books. I hate getting them--I never use them and they seem so wasteful. I'll take a look at MyJunkTree, although at first glance I see it is not free. One thing I like about these other options is that they do not cost anything. Thanks again! Drew
