Happy 2014

2013 was a very stressful year to start with Brian had issues with his job..Daddy at the age of 93 was starting to decline which I saw coming...and I was stuck in the middle of both trying to maintain a calm and functioning home.
My work was stressful, we had layoffs which was very hard on everyone.  My good friend Jimmy was laid off in Feb 13 and it really rocked the whole department. 
I kept moving forward keeping my heart open to the Lord who gave me the strength to keep my head on straight.
At the end of Aug. daddy was admitted to Boulder City Hospital with a nasty UTI (urinary tract infection) with medication that was clearing up and the journey began for him.
A few days into Sept. I found myself at the hospital with daddy he had entered the world of Dementia and was wanting to go home to the Lord and mother.
 On 11-04-13 daddy went home very peacefully and it was such a relief that his struggle to hang on had come to an end.
Today my nieces' husband Todd went to the Lord after suffering with Luekemia for over 5yrs.  I know this is a tough time for her but she has strong family support.
Have a good day and don't forget to tell your family how much you love them.

Just For The Record

From Track Side with Melli

Just for the record on my comments tonight on Twitter pointing out the Nascar and or Fox Sports got the 4 race segment finishing positions of the drivers incorrect.
I was not pointing fingers or trying to make anyone look silly or stupid, I simply mentioned that the ave finishing position of Jimmy Johnson #48 was not 4th. 
It would have been around 10th or so not 4th is all I was saying and it wasn't caught. 
When a mistake is made it needs to be acknowledged and use as a learning tool for next year so it doesn't happen again.
If your going to start something new make sure everyone including the media covering the race and all the teams know exactly who's on first.
That's all there is to that and it's kinda of funny I got so much attention it was even mentioned on the after show on Fox. lol
Ciao for and I will be back soon

Big Racing Day Indy and Nascar

This has been an all racing day to start it was Indy Pole day for the then Indy 500 next weekend.
In Memory Of Dan Weldon
The picture here is of the late Indy Car driver Dan Weldon. 
Now, for tonight it's Nascar's All Star Race or dash for a million in cash.  It's the craziest race of the year but so much fun. 
It's mash it son mash it..lol it's just balls to the wall to the end for alllll that cash.
Next weekend we will be celebrating Memorial Day and all our troops.  The Coca Cola 600 (which should be shortened by 100 laps) is the longest and toughest on the drivers.  It's a hot, long, grueling race at night.

This is a Nascar picture of which I don't know which track it is lol I wanted my Charlotte
Have a great weekend.

The Nascar 2013 Season Begins

The Racing season has begun today's race in the Phx AZ.

The Nascar 2013 season is under way it should be a action packed season to say the least.
We have Mark Martin on the pole for the umpteenth time over his very long and storied racing career, WTG Mark it just shows that being over the big 50 isn't the retirement age it's just beginning of our 2nd journey in life and I love it.
The race next weekend will be in Las Vegas NV, which I will be at most of the weekend.
There is such energy that fills the valley when Cup is here its hard to explain you just need to be here to experience it.
Well, the green flag is about to drop and need to get going Ciao for now
