Video won't work. How about relating what its contents were?

I'll try to view it again later, sometimes this is just temporary.

Okay the video is working again. Interesting that we were responsible for the previous government and the Iranians had no utilities just like Iraq now. Oh, and those farmers sure like a dire threat to our very existence as Obama keeps telling us.

I think Blogger my be experiencing some temporary bugginess or other difficulties, as I had problems logging in earlier today, then difficulty reading you comments.

Or maybe it's their way of saying people who read and write blogs should get out more, maybe should be doing non-blog-related activities on a Saturday night...:^)

I’m racing my can am slot cars tonight. So far Dan Gurney is ahead in #48 by about 20 seconds. The Denny Hulme #5 car evidently needs some more tuning perhaps some more sanding of the rear tires will do the trick. Or I might have to polish the rear bearings a bit more. I’m about to race the Lola T290 which I haven’t done in a while.

Here are the two Mclarens side by side.

I was going to buy one but it wouldn’t pass the smog test.

Here is the Lola T290, the driver seems to be having trouble fitting in the car or maybe he is just too tall.

I wouldn’t mind having this car either but I don’t know if I could get it insured.

See how really mature I am? I’m too old for a mid-life crisis so now I’m regressing to my childhood. But it is fun.
