What's a Toyota Driver doing co-hosting a Ford Meetup

My connection to Ford is through Scott Monty - Ford's Social Media Head who is a good friend ( except he promised to send me a model Ford Mustang for my toddler). I was in San Francisco recently for #Tbash the launch party for Shel Israel's Book Twitterville - How Business can thrive in New Global negihborhoods. The Thrifty Car Rental at SFO gave me a Ford Focus and I thought it drove well. When I returned the car I told Thrifty that it took some time for the A/C to start up and they promised to look into it. Thrifty is a great rental car company, I was in and out in less than 5 minutes . You can never judge a car by a rental but thats the only opportunity I get to drive other brands and find out features companies are adding to cars.

I am curious about Ford, They did not ask for bail out money and see to focus a lot on user feedback. I have heard good reviews of the newer cars they are making and want to check out the new Ford Taurus 2101. I also get a chance to meet Ken Czubay Ford Motor Company’s, Vice President, U.S. Marketing, when he's in Washington D.C. next Thursday September 3rd . If you are in DC and want to check out the new Ford Taurus and have a meetup;

Flying Emirates 232 from Washington Dulles to Dubai - Review

Emirates flies the Airbus A380-800 from Washington DC to Dubai
There was a time that flying between India and the US meant a stopover in London, Frankfurt, Paris or Amsterdam (I loved Amsterdam). However in the past decade this has changed dramatically. Now `Emirates (Dubai) Etihad (Abu Dhabi) Qatar Airways (In Doha, Qatar) have taken over these routes with their new aircraft and great service.
From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night.
I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flight, I divide …
