Welcome to the Summer Stretch. TNT will be the channel for races.
Weather looks iffy for the weekend.
Seems like it’s always iffy come race time in the Poconos.
Nationwide race is in Iowa, a very nice “short” track.
Pickup Trucks are running at Texas now...
Aah, rained out qualifying.
Amazing come-from-behind victory (horse racing)
Had some unexpected free time and thought I’d catch the Nationwide race last night. Not!
Accuweather says no rain for the race today. I’ll believe that when I see it.
Early ping, will probably be out and about when the race starts.
According to happydogx2, the radar and forecast look good for today’s race.
Nationwide race rescheduled for this morning, in about an hour it looks like. ESPN2
Darn, no welfareQ points this week!
Local weather looks great. 72 degrees and partly cloudy at race time. High of 77. Winds at around 6 MPH. 0% chance of rain until the evening, and any possibility will be so late that it doesn’t matter.
All of my choices seem to be in the middle and back to start the race. This could be a long week.
May a raccoon eat your garden!
BBQ Rules and Regulations
Standard Operating Procedures released today Please learn.
We are about to enter the BBQ season. Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity. When a man volunteers to do the BBQ, the following chain of events is put into motion.
The woman buys the food.
The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes the dessert.
The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to to the man who is lounging beside the grill, beer in hand.
The woman remains outside the compulsory three-meter exclusion zone where the exuberance of testosterone and other manly bonding activities can take place without the interference of the woman.
Here comes the important part:
THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.
More routine ... .
The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.
The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is looking great. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he flips the meat.
Important again :
HE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.
More routine ...
The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.
After eating, the woman clears the table and washes the dishes.
And most important of all :
Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.
The man asks the woman how she enjoyed 'her night off,' and, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women.
I wish! I don’t trust any of my family to grill the Oysters
