This has nothing to do with EVs or SoCal, but I want to share it with my friends because it is so cool.

The Cosmos episode on gravity showed a simulation of our far future, when the Milky Way collides with Andromeda. The billions of stars in each galaxy do not collide, but gravity totally disrupts both galaxies until they finally merge into a new "Milkdromeda."

Yesterday I heard a great talk at Pomona College on Galactic Collisions. These collisions are quite common; perhaps 2% of the billions of galaxies we can see are colliding, but the full collision process takes several billion years. Since each star in each galaxy is gravitationally coupled to all the other stars, it takes an array of 50,000 computer cores several days to simulate one collision. The video linked below not only shows a typical collision in great detail, but it also superimposes astronomical images of actual collisions in process that match each step of the simulation.

Next Gathering a week from tomorrow, in Santa Ana.
I am looking forward to seeing you (almost) all then.
Also, I am hoping to have something silver to show you.
Yes, I am excited, which is difficult for an alien like me.

It appears that I could be selling my white 2011 LEAF SL with
QC port and Rear-View camera, and an 8 year or 100k mile
Nissan extended warranty. No dings, scratches, or repairs,
and the latest firmware, probably including the original GID-Meter
and a Dongle and Android Smartphone for using the Leaf Spy Pro app.
Purchased in March 2011 and at about 20k miles now, vin 855.

If you know anybody that might be interested, please let me
know before I actually need to actually put it up for sale.

Merry Christmas, Gary, Nancy, and Heidi

It looks like my wife will come with me this Saturday, and I will
stop by to give "one-eye" Phil a ride, if he is up to it.

After almost 2 weeks of laying on one side to keep his ailing eye positioned
with its air bubble "just so" to aid the retinal detachment repair, Phil is anxious
to be able to get out and celebrate with us. They had to remove
the gel from the eye and inflate it with air, which should gradually
be replaced by new fluid. The best news is that the prognosis is good.
In the mean time, no slapping him on the back of the head, please.

Apparently Kat will be joining us, and I am really looking forward
to seeing her again. If people keep coming "out of the woodwork",
we might need extra tables.

Wednesday last week, my wife said that she wanted to give me
"something special" for Christmas, but I did not understand, at first,
what she had in mind. My imagination raced, but no, it was not that!
Not pregnant, and not a Death-by-Chocolate cake, what could it be?

After a fast and furious few heart-pounding few days and nights...
our new silver "Nicholas" vehicle arrived yesterday, so I now join
the "EVolution" that seems to have captured many "rEVolutionaries".
It is so powerful that one should drive it with great care, and I got
the least powerful, but most range, of the series.

So, it appears that we have taken a "huge step" for us, into the
next generation of the "giant step for humanoids".

Love to all, and looking forward to seeing you Saturday. :P

I'll be in Long Beach for an EV study at 9am - 10am, so I'll plan to stop by on my return to San Diego.
