Flynn staggered home very late after another evening with his drinking buddy, Paddy. He took off his shoes to avoid waking his wife, Mary. He tiptoed as quietly as he could toward the stairs leading to their upstairs bedroom, but misjudged the bottom step. As he caught himself by grabbing the banister, his body swung around and he landed heavily on his buns. A whiskey bottle in each back pocket broke and made the landing especially painful.
Managing not to yell, Flynn sprung up, pulled down his pants, and looked in the hall mirror to see that his butt cheeks were cut and bleeding. He managed to quietly find a full box of Band-Aids and began putting a Band-Aid as best he could on each place he saw blood.
He then hid the now almost empty Band-Aid box and shuffled and stumbled his way to bed.
In the morning, Flynn woke up with searing pain in both his head and butt and Mary staring at him from across the room.
She said, “You were drunk again last night weren’t you, Flynn?”
Flynn said, “Why honey, do you say such a mean and humiliating thing?”
“Well,” Mary said, “it could be the open front door, it could be the broken glass at the bottom of the stairs, it could be the drops of blood trailing through the house to your bed, it could be your bloodshot eyes, but mostly…..it’s all those Band-Aids stuck on the hall mirror.”

It’s encouraging to see how some innovative automobile manufacturers are replacing fossil fuels with ethanol, electricity and solar energy to run their vehicles. Such is the case of Toyota Motor Corp.
A recent Nikkei story revealed that Toyota is planning to offer solar panels on its popular Prius hybrid vehicle. The solar panel option will be available on the next generation high-end Prius model when it receives a redesign in 2009. Toyota Motor Corp. will then will become the first major automaker to use solar power for a vehicle, according to the article published on July 7th.
The paper said Toyota would equip solar panels manufactured by Kyocera Corp. on the roof of the high-end version of the Prius when it redesigns the gasoline-electric hybrid car early next year, and the power generated by the panels would be used for the air conditioning system.
If this manufacturing scheme works, I’m sure other major car manufacturers will follow suit. When they do, it will be music to Al Gore’s ears.
