Telsa S 60

While in Indianapolis at a family gathering, a relative was showing us a new car. It is the Telsa S 60 and it is quite a car. All electric and very quiet, it makes a good impression. The door handles recede into the doors until the key is detected nearby, they then protrude out. There is no engine compartment, the front hood covers a storage area and the back is room from two seats so the car can hold 7 passengers.

The charging connector is not that big and fits in a port behind the driver side reflector.
 Charging port shown in next picture.
 The front dash display has access to a rear camera for backing up. It also can access the Internet to get news and driving information.
 Disc brakes help the car stop and I am not sure if they are regenerative or not.
 View of what the driver sees on their display.
 Look at whats under the front hood...not quite what one expects!

Spring Flowers in Indianapolis

 I took some pictures while at a family get together in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. This first picture is that of a daffodil.
 The next picture is of a grape hyacinth
 This is the purple flower of the vinca plant.
 A trusted spring flower and bane to yards everywhere... the dandelion.
Last, a yellow tulip flower not quite fully opened yet though.
