  1. Moto Guzzi's are the easiest motorcycles to spot because of the way the V twin engine is positioned Transversely with the cylinders showing on the left and right side of the bikes from the front and rear view.
  2. The motorcycle in Miz Tisdale on the Lam is a Moto Guzzi, not 100% sure which model though. That's my 3rd favorite motorcycle brand behind Indian and Harley Davidson.

    Biggest shock of the season (sarcasm) Christopher Bell to drive the JGR #20 Toyota next season https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/08/10/christopher-bell-to-drive-for-joe-gibbs-racing-in-2021/ Spire Motorsports bought LFR team charter, shop and inventory https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/08/11/nascar-spire-motorsports-confirms-purchase-leavine-family-racing/. Plans to expand to 2 cars for 2021 season. Spire Motorsports currently runs the #77 Chevrolet and was able to grab a victory last year with Justin Haley in a rain shortened Daytona race. Even though covid-19 has paused a lot of sports Nascar tv ratings are still taking a hit. The races for the past few weeks have set new least watched records that Nascar hasn't seen in 2 decades or more. Though Nascar cup races are still beating NHL and NBA games in tv ratings however PGA golf is kicking everybody's butts in tv ratings. This weekend's Nascar races at Daytona Road course will air on FS1(truck series) Sunday 12pm, NBCSN(Xfinity) Saturday 3pm and NBC(Cup series) Sunday 3pm.
  4. Wife and I went back to that estate sale from the weekend before and bought a few more jars and bottles. I grabbed all the remaining light blue Ball Mason jars. The wife grabbed a few more interesting liquor bottles and old syrup bottles. Some of the Mason jars I think had moonshine in them at one time, when we opened a couple of them they had a real strong odor . I seen a diy on turning Mason jars into light fixtures so that's my plan for a few of the jars, at least when or if we get a house. Troublemaker next door went on a screaming rant early yesterday morning about blowing somebody's brains out and just so happens one of the other neighbors was outside with her dog. She of course made a quick dash for her door. I doubt she will but I hope she called/calls and complains to the manager.

    Kevin Harvick swept the doubleheader's at Michigan https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/08/09/nascar-kevin-harvick-completes-sweep-of-michigan-doubleheader/. This is Harvick's 55th cup series win which puts him at 11th on the all time win list. This was also the first time since 1971 that a driver won 2 back to back races in two days. Richard Petty was the driver to do it in 1971. Denny Hamlin finished 2nd, Martin Truex jr 3rd, Kyle Busch 4th and Joey Logano 5th. Erik Jones and Jimmie Johnson are still in danger of missing the playoffs unless either one of them wins a race in the next few weeks or the drivers ahead of them in points have a few bad finishes. Bubba Wallace confirms he's got offers from Richard Petty Motorsports and Chip Ganassi Racing for 2021 https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/08/09/bubba-wallace-says-he-has-offers-from-rpm-ganassi/

    Kevin Harvick dominated the first of the Michigan doubleheader's winning both stages and the race. Brad Keselowski finished 2nd, Martin Truex jr 3rd, Ryan Blaney 4th and Kyle Busch traded paint to finish 5th. I hope this choosing lane gimmick dies at Michigan. What a joke it is. If you were running 3rd or 4th before the caution you could restart 6th or 8th if you choose the wrong lane .

    Not a surprise, Erik Jones is getting the boot at JGR for Christopher Bell though it's not "official" yet https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/08/06/erik-jones-will-not-return-to-joe-gibbs-racing-after-2020/ Here's the rest of the 2020 Nascar season schedule https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/08/06/nascar-announces-remaining-2020-schedule-cup-xfinity-trucks/ Nascar introduces a new gimmick for the rest of the season https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/08/06/nascar-introducing-choose-rule-at-michigan-chase-elliott/
  8. Just once I would like something to go right this year, JUST ONCE, but apparently that's just too much to ask for! Some local Boss Hogg outbid us on a house yesterday, willing to pay cash on the barrel. Unfortunately that was our last, best chance to get out of this hole apartment this year since our lease is up in 3 1/2 weeks.

    Jimmie Johnson now has a nature trail named after him https://www.jayski.com/2020/08/05/nature-trail-in-graves-family-campground-at-michigan-international-speedway-to-be-renamed-in-honor-of-7-time-champion-jimmie-johnson/ .
  10. It seems like the writer's were running out of reasons for Boss Hogg to screw the dukes over by season 4 as they used the Duke's mortgage in a lot of episodes.
  11. Think I read about that place in one of the Haunted Ohio volumes. The author mentions a few haunted places outside of Ohio. Ice Cream
  12. Spooky Roger if you haven't read one yet pick up a copy of Haunted Ohio, it has some interesting stories and spooky Ohio places to visit.

    Been a busy week in Nascar so let's start with Sunday's race... Brad Keselowski won for the 3rd time this season at New Hampshire. Denny Hamlin finished 2nd, Martin Truex jr finished third, Joey Logano finished 4th and Kevin Harvick 5th. Matt Dibenedetto scored his 5th top ten this season by finishing 6th, SHR teammates Aric Almirola and Cole Custer finished 7th & 8th, Chase Elliot 9th and Tyler Reddick 10th. Brad Keselowski and Penske agree on Contract extension https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/08/03/team-penske-extends-contract-with-brad-keselowski/ Leaving Family Racing has been sold https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/08/04/leavine-family-racing-announces-it-has-been-sold/ https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/08/04/snowball-effect-led-bob-leavine-to-sell-nascar-cup-team/ Team will finish the rest of the season under new ownership. Bubba Wallace has been offered a stake in Richard Petty Motorsports if he signs new contract https://www.jayski.com/2020/08/03/bubba-wallace-to-chip-ganassi-racing/ it's also rumored that Chip Ganassi Racing is interested in having him drive the #42 next season. The cup series will be having a doubleheader this weekend at Michigan both races will be on NBCSN as well as the Xfinity Road America race Saturday at noon. I'll have to keep an eye on the expressway up the road as some of the haulers come and go that way to avoid I-75 traffic. I remember a few years ago when I was out for a bike ride I stopped at the top of the overpass for a drink and seen a convoy of the Cup haulers.
