Let me start by saying congrats to J and T. They adopted a newborn this past week!!! Way to go!!! As E said that kid was the luckiest person on earth that day. Did anyone see the hockey this weekend!

Over in the UK they have traffic cameras everywhere! They have cameras that will get your plate at one point along the motorway and then when you pass the second point 20 miles down the road they calculate your speed between the two points and if your over the limit BAM! Points on your license and a fine is in your mail box. Well the Brits have gone over the top now. They want to outfit every car in the UK with GPS tracking devices and charge them 45p / mile they travel on the road!WTF this is ridiculous! I have friends over there and I have not heard thier opinions yet but I'm betting it's not going to be favorable.
