  1. Not much to report but here's the latest: Circle Sport forms alliance with Go Fas Racing and leases charter for the #32 and will also run the #33 part time for 2018 http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2018/01/17/go-fas-racing-secures-charter-by-partnering-with-circle-sport-racing/ David Gilliland will attempt to make the Daytona 500 with startup RBR Racing http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2018/01/17/todd-gilliland-to-drive-no-4-for-kyle-busch-motorsports-father-to-fill-in-at-daytona/ If things go well it might turn into a full time ride. Danica Patrick has funding for the Daytona 500 & Indy 500 now she just needs to find rides for both races http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2018/01/18/danica-patrick-has-daytona-500-indy-500-sponsor-now-needs-ride/
  2. I'm on the Western side of Lake Erie small world hehe. Kind of sick of the single digit temps as well, wouldn't mind some more snow though for some extra cash.

  4. Wife and I cut our Sunday plans short so I could Install a new battery in a relatives car in 20 degree weather with windchills near zero yesterday because said relative didn't feel like waiting at the auto center for an hour or more for their mechanics to change it Saturday . Would have been done taking the old one out and putting the new one in in half an hour if I didn't have to wait in checkout line at Walmart for 45+minutes, I kid you not it was over 45 minutes because some genius only scheduled one cashier to work the auto section yesterday . Luckily got back in time just before sundown to put the new one in the car.

  6. My ISP started throttling customers back in 2012 and then instituted new plans that include GB limits and when you hit the limit your internet is throttled to the slowest speed till the next billing cycle starts. Where I live I only have 3 choices for internet; my current isp, phone company which can't even get phone service right or a Satellite dish which I would have to pay a 'dish fee' to the apartment complex I live at which would offset the savings of switching. With the current administration businesses are basically in charge of Washington DC more than they have been in the last decade. So if you don't think some big ISP's will take full advantage of this you are living in a dream world.
  7. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year. Heading to the In law's on Xmas eve and maybe heading to the theater on Christmas to see Star Wars depending on how much snow we get.
  8. Blocking websites I don't think will ever happen however I bet a lot of the ISP's will throttle users of streaming services especially where they have a stranglehold on customers.
  9. I think he would have been a great fit at FRR but they are selling their charter for the #77 and don't seem interested in staying a 2 car team. All the really good teams are full but Penske could add a 4th or Chip Ganassi Racing could add a 3rd if they could find good sponsorship for Kenseth and buy one of the open charters. Daytona is quite a ways away so something could happen for Kenseth.
  10. Kurt Busch signs 1 year deal with SHR and gets new Crew Chief Billy Scott from the #10 http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2017/12/12/kurt-busch-re-signs-with-stewart-haas-racing/ Michael McDowell fills the vacant seat of the #34 @ Front Row Motorsports and FRM continues it's partnership with Ford http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2017/12/14/front-row-motorsports-adds-michael-mcdowell-expands-technical-alliance-with-roush-fenway/ TMG and CircleSport part ways which leaves the #33 & Jeffrey Earnhardt's plans up in the air for 2018 http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2017/12/12/circle-sport-parts-ways-with-the-motorsports-group/ Matt Kenseth is still without a ride for 2018
  11. Richard Petty Motorsports Switches to Chevy and aligns with Richard Childress Racing http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2017/12/08/richard-petty-motorsports-richard-childress-racing-announce-alliance/ Here's the updated Silly Season http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2017/12/08/silly-season-scorecard-holiday-edition/ and in the something you don't see everyday category... http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2017/12/08/talladega-superspeedway-morphs-to-talladega-supersnowway-with-rare-snowstorm/
  12. PBS stations air quite a few British shows. One of the wife and I's favorites is the Great British Baking Show. Unfortunately that is also getting the American Reality TV makeover which is premiering this week on ABC stations and it looks like it will be unwatchable. We've also Enjoyed Lucy Worsley's British Documentaries and the Secrets of... series on various England historical sites.
  13. Wife and I swapped in some nicer interior door panels into her car yesterday, just got the rears done though. What looked like an easy 10 minute job per door on Youtube turned into 3hrs hahaha will get to the fronts next time it's nice out.
  14. Pinky ...haven't seen that cartoon in years Roundabouts are great as long as people know how to use them and always yield to the car on the left here in the 'states.
  15. Will be interesting to see how long the Pit crew changes last. I have a feeling it won't last more than a few races if it proves to be too unsafe having 1 tire carrier doing the job of 2 tire carriers. I just don't see why they don't do what the open wheel and sports car racing series do and just have 4 tire changers and an air jack in the car.
