Jamie Slone Takes Round Three, Mid Ohio of the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge with GoPro/Molecule Mustang
Jamie Slone of the Slone Racing #6 GoPro/Molecule Ford Mustang FR500S stole the show with his first Pro Race win in round three of the Ford Racing Challenge for the Miller Cup in Mid Ohio on June 21.
Slone has bounced right back after taking fourth in round two of the Ford Racing Challenge in Toronto, Canada because of having to replace an engine during the race. Nevertheless, Slone started the inaugural, round one race off well with a second place finish in Atlanta. With four more races to go, Slone carries a solid ranking towards winning the Miller Cup.

Talk about brand loyalty. This fan of the Play and Freeze Ice Cream Maker figured out a way to light up the ball and then videotaped it as she rolled it around the floor. Truthfully, I find it oddly captivating ~ though, recommendations for a soundtrack are welcome.

As our friends at Base Camp Communications so eloquently pointed out, Verde has been spending a bit of time in NYC lately. In fact, two of our folks just returned from a very successful trip last week.
Also in NY last week, were two other folks - both of them decided to scale the NY Times Building. Too bad we weren't in a meeting with them at the time, because one of the climbers was wearing Miuras!
An athlete/activist scales NY Times Building; A fashion editor notices Muiras.
Isn't that kind of like being "sick" and "fabulous" at the same time?

I have a sneaking suspicion that the actual reader numbers of Us Magazine are a lot higher than the official circulation numbers. Who doesn't go to the dentist 10 minutes early just to catch up on the news? I mean, come on: it's Highlights (that oddly monochromatic kids rag) versus juicy gossip and glossy pages of beautiful people. And why is it that the check-out aisle copies are always a little dog-eared?
So, for those of you unwilling to admit your clandestine love for all things pop culture, I'll keep you up to speed. Check it:
Yes, that is Jake Gyllenhaal (with a certain Academy Award winner) sporting the 66˚North Glymur Jacket. Jake and Reese are pretty cute, but the Glymur is HOT!
