Hybrid Rotarians, February 24, 2001

Saturday morning started off with a spin around the block in the new Honda Insight, a gas/electric hybrid that sells for $20k+, and which gets 70 mpg. It's a two seater with virtually no cargo space, so I talked myself out of it, and went on to the Rotary fundraiser with Kathi. We had our hair elaborately down at a place down on Laurel St. Although we didn't win any of the raffle prizes, I didn't come away empty handed. I "won" the juicer for a $75 bid in the silent auction. The juicer purports to sell for $120; who knows its worth?
