I don’t care if he’s a Church member. He’s a rich good-ol-boy lookin’ to make another buck. He’s being drowned in campaign contributions from Wall St, so who do you think is going to call the shots if he gets elected? Every time history repeats itself, the cost of the lesson goes up. Don’t get me wrong, I’m no Obama fan either. The only candidate I was even remotely drawn to was Ron Paul, but it looks like he’s been squeezed out a corrupt system.

Our 2012 Singapore Grand Prix meal

So this weekend we had traditional home-made Chicken Laksa, and our own version of non-alcoholic Singapore Slings with Cherry juice, Lime juice, Lemonade and crushed ice. They went really well together.

The race was long. Well, no longer in length that most other races but it’s a slow track. A stark contrast to last weeks race at Monza. After 59 of the prescribed 61 laps, they called it a day after 2 hours. Vettel took a big chunk out of Alonso’s lead in the standings by taking first to Alonso’s third. Button was second, Di Resta impressta with fourth and Daniel Ricciardo again managed points in ninth, actually beating Red Bull’s Mark Webber in tenth. Webber later got docked time for a questionable incident which dropped him to 11th and robbed him of his point. Schumacher liked the look of Vergne’s back end and drove right up the back of him on lap 38.

Our 2012 Italian Grand Prix meal

So for the thirteenth round of the 2012 Formula 1 World Championship, we went with Pasta Carbonara using bacon, parmesan cheese, onion, cream, egg and black pepper. With a side of garlic bread and salad. It was rich, like evil rich. But it tasted great.

Current championship leader “He who must not be named” must be pretty chuffed with the result. Despite finishing third (and being out qualified by a flying Massa) he actually extended his lead in the championship rankings by thirteen points by virtue of Red Bull finishing outside of the points. Not a bad race, and it was good to see “Checco” Perez in the hunt right at the end with some good tire strategy.

Mark Webber better get a wriggle on if he hopes to rein in the leaders. He’s had some less than inspiring results since re-signing a few months ago.
