Elon Musk is not the CEO you want to speak at a big event, or possibly anytime..............he is too outspoken, making up strange words and honest answers. He also is confident in his manor............ Today during a speech at the Detroit Auto Show he gave us a glimpse of himself that was very revealing. "He will always be with Tesla but not probably in as the CEO after the Model 3". I am sorry but I am obsessed with Tesla because I own one. Here is a link to a great article about a person who has driven 10,000 miles in a Tesla Model S. I agree with all he says.  http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2015/01/11/4-things-i-learned-driving-a-tesla-for-10000-miles.aspx

7:30 Pm: so elon musk started speaking.............Elon was on the stage at 1:43 our time, 43 minutes after the market closes. Everyone who is into trading knows there is an extended time after the market closes which can change prices dramatically, especially when earnings are announced and when new information which is big is going on. So Elon spoke for well over an hour and the stock dropped dramatically. Within 10 minutes the stock went down to 192 from 204. It continued to drop until it hit 188 and slowly went back to 192, 12 points from the close. I bought some more stock in the extended trading time. I always look for after market news.................

We finished bottling today. I tasted many wines again and I will have more to say tomorrow, but I have to say, 2013 is great, maybe as good as 2009.

8:30 Pm: I am so exited today because a few things worked out. I can now go up in my model S to the Oregon Coast. There are hotels up there now who will allow free charging. I mentioned Salishan, where Pat and I went on a journey on a road below Portland to Salishan and then back above Portland on a South road and then a North road that bypassed some of Portland,..............I digress

I can now go to the first hotel on the coast we went to on October 26, 2013. They had a charger with a 110 connector, but I learned today I can get an 80 amp charger for free. So I will be at Surfsand Resort later this year for a free charge. Tesla owners have free charging, a little cost at home, because of PG&E...........

Why did I mention PG&E..................I can't get into it tonight but, I have said, they do not have their act together. I have solar and they are not paying for it

We finished bottling yesterday so I tasted many wines in the last two days, I did it, I had to throw out most of what was left in my glass, more than I tasted. I had 25 to go through, with 2012's, 2013 10 Month and our newly bottled 2013 16 month wines. It actually was easy. I take a sit of maybe 3/4 of and ounce in a glass filled with 2. I try to do two glasses at a time so I can tell which wine I like more than the other. Rarely do I go, "They seem the same". I have some fun. 24 samples means I took in 18 ounces, because I throw out 1.25 ounces per glass. I do have a glass or two at dinner so I could get close to 30 in the night..........off to a movie, upstairs...........
