Anyone Remember Back In Early January When The Car Went Off The Cliff In California?

For some reason I thought of this as I drove to work yesterday morning.

Here is a still from the dashcam video that was circulated on the news and webz.

Weeks and months went by with nothing.


I even posted about it <<<




When I got to work and had a couple minutes I did a search for "car off cliff in california". I was kind of surprised when it was revealed they had finally identified the missing person after four months. By that time we were deep into 24/7 covid coverage and, like most sensational stories, the follow up never gets the same air play.

Four months after a dark colored 2007 Lexus RX was captured on a dashcam of a passing motorist jumping off a cliff and into the ocean in San Mateo County, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) believes it has finally solved the sad mystery of who was behind the wheel of the vehicle.

According to a statement released by the CHP, the driver of the Lexus was San Francisco resident Tracey Ivori Sinclair. The department said human remains and Sinclair’s Californian driver’s license were discovered at nearby Montara State Beach in the ensuing months.

“Additionally, a Missing Person’s Report filed for Ms. Sinclair by family members and a DNA match confirmed by the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office provided the remaining circumstantial evidence to indicate Ms. Sinclair was the driver of the Lexus captured on dash cam footage in December,” said the CHP.

You Will Be Hearing About The BLM Protests In Providence RI..


 The media will have you believe a choir boy was on his way to church on his moped when he was purposely run over by law enforcement.


  PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WHDH) - Hundreds of people took to the streets in Providence, Rhode Island Tuesday night to demand justice for a 24-year-old man who was critically injured in an officer-involved moped crash over the weekend. (Sunday Night)

 When you read moped what do you envision?

 From this NEWS STORY you have to read to the bottom to get this information:


Earlier Sunday evening, ABC6 cameras captured over 100 ATVs and dirt bikes riding through Providence. According to the President of the Providence Firefighters Union, Derek Silva, firefighters responded to a total of 4 crashes involving the dirt bikes and ATVs on Sunday evening.

“Providence firefighters are responding to more motor vehicle crashes involving illegal ATVs and dirt bikes than ever before,” Silva said.  “These illegal ATV and dirt bikes are causing crashes that have led to serious injuries and even death. They have no business in our city.”



In 2017, an ordinance was passed through Providence City Council that allows police to confiscate and destroy illegal bikes and ATVs.

Earlier this month, 33 illegal dirt bikes and ATVs seized by police were destroyed.

Although Providence Police were seen following the bikers, the Providence Police Department has certain no-chase policies due to public safety liabilities, and police say stopping the bikers is often an issue.

So illegal bikes and ATVs are illegal in the he city? Did I read that right?

This was a clip I found taken on Sunday afternoon. Anarchy.

Here is the clip the media is showing. They supposedly cut it because of #expletive so the context at the end of crash is lost.

Here is a what is purported to be the full video and aftermath:

  Here is  still of the "moped"

Also catch some the clips taken of the bikes riding on the roads from this broadcast:



and I'll leave you with this tweet that describes the incident

Well Now, That Covers Just Three Of My Important Food Groups...










Weekend Snow At The Mount Washington Hotel...


 This place has an amazing history:

  Mount Washington is in the background covered in clouds and the cog railway is seen as the vertical path just to the right of the hotel.


 From the past:


Take a tour through the history of Omni Mount Washington Resort, a destination spot centuries in the making.


Omni Hotels & Resorts announced that it has acquired The Omni Mount Washington Resort from CNL Lifestyle Properties. 


Bretton Woods replaced old snowmaking pipe and added 35 new, high efficiency HKD SV 10 towers representing an investment of over $300,000, plus another $100,000 in new rental equipment.  The addition of Fabyan Fields will include a Nordic racing arena and event fields.


An expansion of Mount Stickney aimed at the Nordic skier takes place at the Bretton Woods Ski Area at the Omni Mount Washington Resort for the 2013-14 seasons. Additional Nordic terrain is added to the already vast network of 100km. These new high-altitude trails will provide the avid Nordic skier with early and late season terrain. Extending out from the new Mount Stickney Cabin, these new trails will circle up along the ridge to the summit of Mount Stickney and connect into the Stickney trail system.  It will be the quintessential spot for Nordic races and events.

The $1.3 million expansion also welcomed 40 snow guns on Crawford’s Blaze and 20 upgraded snow guns to Ben trails (Ben, Big Ben, and Bigger Ben). In addition, guests will be able to enjoy the recently expanded Bretton Woods Canopy Tour. New this year, Bretton Woods has upgraded the Canopy Tour to include 4 new zips lines adding 1,000 more feet of high-flying fun. These four new zips – ranging from 500 to 800 feet – replace four smaller ones, which means less time on the ground and more time in the trees, keeping the adrenaline pumping throughout the 4,700-foot tour. 


The Omni Mount Washington Resort continues its transformation with a $1.4 million investment in the redesign of the Omni Bretton Arms Inn. The Inn welcomed new design pallets inspired by the area’s natural surroundings displayed on curtains, carpets, upholstery, artwork and guest bedding. The Inn also welcomed a new Bretton Arms Dining Room and bar. Over at Bretton Woods, the resort continued its $750,000 expansion of Mount Stickney with the instillation of a new 2,000-foot Doppelmayr T-Bar and a new 600-square-foot log cabin and another $200,000 on 50 new SV10 Impulse snowguns on the popular Range View trail. At the main hotel, nearly $100,000 was invested in the remodeling of the Princess Room updated with a modern mix of décor and furnishing.

In the Fall of 2012, the resort also began a $6.5 million restoration of the hotel’s signature red roofs with innovative technology to prevent icicles from forming in the winter months.


The Omni Mount Washington Resort begins the second phase of a comprehensive renovation that represents a $10 million+ investment and comprises renovations to all of the resort’s restaurants (except for the Dining Room which was completed in the first phase), including The Cave, a former speakeasy from the Prohibition Era; Fabyan’s Station, a family dining restaurant housed in a former train station whose renovation will reflect its history with tile laid to resemble train tracks and décor including vintage train artwork; and Stickneys, a “Farm to Table” pub & steakhouse. In addition, the second phase will include the completion of all guest rooms in the hotel as well as all guest rooms in the Omni Bretton Arms Inn. A giant chess set on the lawn and firepit will also be added.
