    It's all about creating excitement, at least that is what little Brian France thinks. He's in touch with the younger generation and he knows they like football because it is exciting, and it is unpredictable when it comes to the playoff portion of the season and that's what he wants NASCAR to be. The NFL of the auto racing world. Now I will admit that stage racing is more exciting, but the concept of winning one race automatically means you go to the playoffs does not sit well with me. We have had an instance in which a race was ended early due to weather and the leader simply inherited the lead during pit stops. He went to the playoffs and was the first car eliminated.

    No snow here in central VA, thank goodness! Stay warm, stay safe, Jim. I'm sitting back and watching the Daytona TV Commercial 500, but they keep interrupting the commercials with a little coverage of a bunch of race cars going around a huge, oval track. Now tell me, who wants to see their tv commercials interrupted by a gaggle of cars going nearly 200 mph?
  4. Sunday

    Wintry morning y'all. An hour ago it was 32F and there was a thin glaze of ice and frost on roofs, cars, trees, shrubs, and grass. We have mostly cloudy skies and the temperature is up to 36F. Expecting a partly cloudy day and a high of 55F. Looks like we might be in for a nice run of spring-like weather for the next 10 days.
  5. Saturday

    Morning y'all, mostly clear skies and 34F. Clouds will increase this morning as the temperature reaches a high of 41F. Falling temperatures and rain this afternoon. Temperatures should bottom out around 35F. Warmer tomorrow and really warm next week.

    Nope, no EAW and that was a truly awesome combat flight sim. All we have is each other.
  7. Friday

    Morning y'all, 60F and clear skies. Clouds will increase after dawn and by mid-day the rain arrives. Expecting the rain to end around sunset. Today's high is expected to be 68F, but temperatures will drop to freezing overnight.

    Jim, I went through the same thing many, many years ago. I know how you feel, I know the emotions, I know the difficulty in making decisions. You have my deepest sympathies. Mike
