    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    This weekend is the North American Auto Show in Detroit. They've been showing highlights all week on the local news. Some of the concept cars look pretty good-Cadillac and VW both had some cool-looking vehicles. Isn't that why people go? To see the concept cars?
