AtticsRemember in the "old days" when houses used to have attics? I was fascinated with exploring my grandnother's attic in New Edinburgh, Ottawa. The attic was accessed by a pull-down set of steps…Continue

Gary, I wish I could say that marshaling is a safer way to see the sport, I was the Chief Course Marshall at Gimli Motorsport Park when it first opened, sadly I have witnessed two marshals getting badly hurt, while both have fully recovered, they spent several weeks in hospital, the only other injuries I've seen at Gimli where from bike racers.
Nor will I ever forget the 1996 Molson Indy (I was at every race from 1986 to 2000, except for 1998) when Jeff Krosnoff was killed and a marshal Gary Avrin (I think he was from Michigan) also died as a result of the crash.
I have raced myself and always had a word of thanks for the dedicated volunteers who stood around the track, watching for our safety, while we enjoyed our favorite sport.
As far as NASCAR is concerned, yes it is quite a spectacle, because of the number of cars on the track and the high speeds because of the banked ovals, while I appreciate the skills required (I never drove on an oval and the highest speed I ever achieved is just over 200kph) its also pretty much a procession, sprinkled with a few laps of "excitement" when a crash happens (I detest crashes of any kind), give me races (F1, various touring series) where the steering has to be turned left and right, gear shifting and braking, then you'll have me on the edge of my seat.
oops site Gary
Gary I saw that Marilyn Lou had posted to your sight, said she had just got out of hospital and was home, tire and having an early night,I sent and email see if she answers.
Evelyn am with you, I seen were some one posted that she was back, I couldn't find her either, but, I wanted to Welcome her back
WHERE IS MARILYN'S POSTING? I CAN'T FIND IT ON HERE, BUT GLAD TO HEAR SHE'S BACK!
Where under Tornado watch here today and tomorrow, I think were in for very "active" spring. Hopefully no no major 'action" one good thing about this house I have basement, But when you think about, it am hit (God help us) then I hope every one will remember am in the basement, two floors on top of me
I was all set to get started on the job and found I have about six more hours of material to download. Thank goodness that doesn't mean in real time. In fact it just finished. So now to have at it. If I'm not on here for a while, that will be why.
And yes, Gary, I am well stocked up on coffee. I got two eighteen-pack boxes of Keurig yesterday when Barb and I were in Staples, plus what I had before. That will do me for a while.
TODAY IS LEAP DAY.. FEB.29TH! ONLY GET ONE IN EVER FOUR YEARS!
Rain here hard last night and a tornado hit just west of us in Kansas. Haven't heard how badly yet!
