These days many of us only write a couple of checks per month. Typically we do most things through debit cards and credit cards, but there are still some things that require us to write out a physical paper check. We live in a world where we can express ourselves, our individuality, our passions and our personalities on everything including our checks. They are called designer checks.
Just 5 miles from Buckingham, enjoy the thrills of British Grand Prix at “Silverstone”. Watch the champions compete to see who the fastest driver is.

When approaching an intersection with no cars things are easy. I change to the gear I will need when starting, pull up slowly to a stop and stay balanced so that I can stay clipped in until the last minute. Then I unclip, turn the wheel the opposite direction to make sure that I lean in the correct direction, point the toe and “just” touch it to the ground while balancing on the saddle. I may choose to slide forward out of the saddle and put my whole foot down but usually don’t unless tired. This technique works great while driving a tandem too.
Under the hood you will find a 2.5L, 4-cylinder DOHC gas engine that uses the Atkinson cycle, an improvement from the outgoing 2.4L engine. The improvements can also be found in the 156 horsepower and 156 lb.-ft. of torque it produces. It won’t be turning heads as you drive by, but in normal mode it can surprisingly takeoff quickly. Most impressive was the seamless transition between the electric and gas rally.
So is Daewoo GM’s great savior? Probably not. Although it may be GM’s most globally efficient subsidiary, the worldwide economic slowdown and high exports under the ailing GM names are hurting sales. GM Daewoo sold 24% more cars this April than in March, but sales are still off 46% from the previous year — the company is now asking South Korea for government assistance.
The Grand Canal Shoppes bill themselves as a “Streetmosphere” with cobblestone walkways that meander along a canal and a variety of live street performers. With over 80 boutiques and restaurants, this shopping stroll is quite an experience. Most of the shops are typical, although I feel the photo gallery near the Venetian main entrance is fabulous.
