Weather and Vegas silliness to get us started this week. And Todd had lunch with Carlos Santana. And Chad shoveled the driveway. And Todd reconned the Silverton Resort for [AMVIV](http://www.amviv.com).
Once I was done typing the word and, we got started with news from the week from [MotoringFile](http://www.motoringfile.com), including out thoughts about the odd things that are falling through the cracks at MINI. Finish up with some rousing Ask Chad and I talk more about the [R56](http://dbmini.us/the-new-guy/) and we have ourselves a show.
