ECIN Lannie - They called the race - Start time is now for 4 p.m. this afternoon - so get your work done early so you can sit back and watch it .

Yeah pretty much follow the leader at the start yesterday - Like the old saying goes - You can't win the race on the first lap - lol

They have a new aero package this year and they are punching a big hole n the air with that tall spoiler - they have great closer rates , so it will be interesting what they will do today . I hate blocking like they do and have seen 2 try it in the earlier races last week and the blocker got put into the wall : grin2::g rin2:

I only watch a few NASCAR races a year - Daytona my favorite , We sure did see the great ones back in the day ! We have attended what ? 3 or 4 Daytona 500's - great time . Boy it's big ! and fast ! We were up at the track ( Indy ) when NASCAR was testing up there - the year before the first Brickyard - We were in the pits , leaning up against the fence looking at some of the cars - Felt a guy come up and lean on the fence right next to me , I looked over and it was King Richard ! Wife and I about crapped - lol - All I could say was Hi - lol at a lose of words - lol

Now a funny story - The next day - the Indianapolis Star had all kinds of pictures of the testing - On the front page - right there sticking out like a sore thumb was Me and my wife sitting there watching a car come out from Gasoline Ally -

Nope. It sounds like a great breakfast food to me. I just wish we could get bacon in South Dakota. Can't get anything but those packaged paper-thin strips of fat. The nice thick cut stuff disappeared years ago for some reason. I haven't had bacon for breakfast in probably 8 or 10 years. Same thing with bulk breakfast sausage. I used to love to make sausage patties for breakfast, but now I either have to grind my own or buy the links.

On my hand written remnants of the German Potato Salad are the ingredients:

bacon
potatoes
onion
flour? (I forgot where I put that, assuming in the bacon drippings)
sugar
water
vinegar
salt
pepper
whipping cream

I am thinking it's going to be really hard to screw the recipe up if all the ingredients are in there.
Oooooh, CREAM, that would be fabulous. I'm betting the flour was sprinkled on the cooked onions and bacon and stirred in, then the cream added (to make a kind of roux), then add the potatoes and stir it all together. Oh, yeah, that would be VERY good!

So what happened? Did they ever get going again, or did they cancel it for the day? I haven't watched NASCAR for so long, most of these drivers' FATHERS were still young men. But I decided to watch this one, and ended up only seeing, what, 16 laps? After NINE pace laps? I lost count, I'm not sure. Then a short delay, then the 16 laps of everyone driving in a line, then off the track again because of heavy rain, so I gave up. This driving-in-a-line thing was new to me. I remember when the drivers used to try to move up in position, and would take the whole width of the track to do it. Yesterday was the weirdest snake maneuver I've ever seen, LOL! Is that a new race tactic? (Seriously, I haven't watched NASCAR since Richard Petty was winning on a regular basis.) Maybe it was just boring at the beginning, eh?

I'd like to see one now that I've set my mind to it, so I'll have to keep an eye out for the next NASCAR event and watch that. Oh, you know what else has changed? It seems like all the cars yesterday had cameras in them, whereas before, only one, MAYBE one, would have a camera in it. And that foam bracket thing they stick their heads in. I know that's to keep from breaking their necks if they hit the wall, but I assume it's hard to get used to having that around you as you're trying to do 200mph with only inches between you and the next car. I couldn't do it. Of course, getting old makes you a lot more conservative in your exploits. When I think back on some of the things I did when I was young, it makes me shake in my booties. It's a wonder I lived to be as old as I am! LOL!

Rain coming in here this afternoon to TN Sunny and 47 yesterday - But it felt more like 77 - that sun is coming back North pretty good ! Kadin was a new dog yesterday - He loves the sun and cool temps - he was out , we played ball I don't know how many times - you name it - we did it ! He sure is weather reactive - just like me I guess - lol

TN - You have to work today ? If not - I stop by and pick you up and we will go boat shopping !

One of my favorite boats we had was a 12 foot flat bottom john boat - it would float in about 4 inches of water - we used it to float the river close to us . A couple of poles - a cooler with sandwiches and drinks and you were set Cousin and I co-owned it and gave 50 bucks for it - LOL

And Good morning all !

That was mean.

I apologize.

Heck no. It's still a huge if, and probably won't happen but if it does, I'll end up buying something cheap and simple like maybe a used john boat with a small motor and trolling motor.

I rarely used my fish finders; mainly used them to check water depth and temperature. I'd fish that way for a few hours to half the day, depending on the weather, and then use the big motor to take me the 2-3 miles back to the marina. Only a few times did I check out spots further up or down river...I caught almost all of my bass within 1-2 miles of the ramp while everyone else was racing up and down the river, trying to find the best fishing spots. Other people have asked me why one even needs a boat, with the big old Cumberland river right here and it's because there are really no public access areas to bank fish. It's either private property, or it's nothing but steep cliffs, bluffs and rocks so you do need a boat to fish around here...unless you want to fish really shallow, small creeks for 2-inch bluegill

Now I have pop-ups of fishing stuff on YouTube! And of course - 50s - 70s(rock and country) songs, classical piano, chess, remodeling how tos….

Good Morning everyone. Start of another week

With all those choices to listen to this morning I chose this before I practice piano.

Donald Trump and Melania make spectacular arrival at Daytona 500 with Air Force One flyover and race track lap in presidential limousine The Beast, as he tells NASCAR drivers to 'start your engines'

Donald Trump fired up his supporters with a visit Sunday to Daytona 500, NASCAR's most prestigious race

He took a lap in his presidential limousine 'the Beast' and delivered the line for drivers to 'start your engines'

Air Force One also flew over the Daytona International Speedway before landing with the president

Trump will also air a new ad during Fox's broadcast of the race

Around 100,000 people are in attendance at the race in Daytona Beach, Florida

Florida is a swing state that Trump won in 2016, and he and first lady Melania Trump are now residents of the state after moving there from New York

Trump is not the first Republican president to visit the Daytona 500, but he is the first to be named Grand Marshal of the event by NASCAR, and will iconically tell drivers to 'start their engines.'

I just finished that ever so depressing u-tube thing about migraines--I knew about most of it but I didn't realize it was as common as 1 out of 7--so I'd be delighted to tell you about Sam my Afghan but first I have to go see if I can find Daytona...

ABTLH

PS I'll leave you with a little (I don't know what they are called--a little thing to make you come back looking for the back story)--Afghan are regularly listed at the bottom of lists that claim to properly rank dogs in order of intellegence--and having lived with one for a significant amount of time I want to tell you that they get a real bad rap that is pretty undeserved.
