Morning all.  Annette you are hard at it already?  Lots of luck,

Welcome back Marilyn Lou.

I finally got my new racing program working, and as I've been told to not to do much for at east the next month, I guess I'll concentrate on coordinating it with the one I have written by my son, and see if I can win some money and bring our team back into a higher rating for the next while  One of our team's computer crashed before last weekend and we spent more time trying to get it up and running with all the programs than we did doing races.  We'll see what happens this week.

Gary go take a look in a while over on horse racing fans.

Good morning, Everybody.  Did I hear correctly that we can expect another dump of snow today?  Not that I will notice.  I'll be slaving over a hot computer with about a month's assignment ahead of me.

Take it easy, MarilnLou.  Pop in when you feel up to it.

Probably the biggest thing that came out of Earnhardt death, is the mandatory use of the HANS device that reduces the risk of fatal neck injury that Earnhardt suffered from.

I saw Earnhart killed; I think restrictions since then, has saved many drivers. Such as explosion and fire at that rACE yesterday, it is a wonder the driver walked away.

 It was quite a Day tona this year, but the seem to be spoiling the race with all the restrictions.

Thanks Gary. About the backup camera. I recently fitted one to my Dodge Caravan. Did it myself in about three ours with a bit of fiddling. The camera clips on the rear number plate with a cable connected to a sender in the car. The screen mounts on the dash which recieves the signal. The camera is powered by the backup lights and the screen has a cable that plugs into the cigarette lighter. Very good picture and night vision after dark. Bought it from Canadian Tire normally about $140. On sale for $99. Markers on the screen let you calculate distances to objects. I

deal safety feature if kids might be behind the car because you see all of the blind spot.
