Very nice.

Based on our weather forecast here in Indy (Isaac leftovers), the NHRA will have to use pontoons on their drag cars.

Earnhardt OK following crash at Kansas tire test
http://www.nascar.com/news/120829/dearnhardtjr-ok-kansas-test-crash/index.html

Dale Earnhardt Jr. escaped injury Wednesday morning after hard contact with the wall during a Goodyear tire-test session at Kansas Speedway.

Track public relations director Kelly Hale said Earnhardt may have had a right-front tire go down on his No. 88 Chevrolet, resulting in heavy impact with the outside wall. Earnhardt was evaluated by the track’s medical staff and released. The team then packed up its equipment and headed back to North Carolina.

Hendrick Motorsports spokesman Laura Scott confirmed that Earnhardt was OK.

...

He likes the banking and says its a fast track made even faster

I saw a bug-eyed Sprite once, but I sprayed it with insecticide. I would really like to get a Shelby Cobra Nustang, but something with AWD would be more practical here. I like the Audi S4 and the new Audi RS5 too. I got 10 welfare Q-points in the mail today.

I posted the question about blind drivers because of this DOJ stupidity:

CNSNews.com) – The U.S. Justice Department says it has reached a settlement with the Sacramento (California) Public Library over a trial program the library was conducting that let patrons borrow Barnes and Noble NOOK e-book readers. DOJ and the National Federation of the Blind objected to the program on grounds that blind people could not use the NOOK e-readers for technological reasons. The Justice Department said the settlement is aimed at stopping discrimination: “Emerging technologies like e-readers are changing the way we interact with the world around us and we need to ensure that people with disabilities are not excluded from the programs where these devices are used,” said Assistant Attorney General Thomas E. Perez in a news release. A DOJ official told CNSNews.com it interviewed a woman who could not participate in the library's e-reader program due to her disability and concluded that the program had violated the ADA.

Why would such a violation not apply to ALL the books in the library?

A blind person cannot read regular books, either!!!

Only under Holder & Obama do we have such blatant stupidity!!

She had 2 years on her when we met her through Friends for Life. I think all that walking strengthened her heart until 6 months ago when she refused to fetch the tennis ball.

Sorry to hear about your dog. We lost our oldest dog about a year ago. She was 75 lbs and lived to 15 years old. She was an old girl, but it was still hard to lose her.
