  What an Awesome weekend I had!
I spent the weekend a little deeper in the south than normal, like anything is EVER normal!

On Thursday I headed south to the Charlotte, NC area for a weekend of golf and racing. Well, more racing than golf.

I headed out Thurday afternoon with a friend and co-worker. He has friends down in Kannapolis, NC that were willing to put me up, even though they really didn't know me. All they new about me was what my buddy Chris told them and apparently, he's a very convincing liar! Lucky me! I was there all of 3 minutes before I felt like I'd been there a million times before. Southern folks just seem to warm up easier than people from alot of other places.

We played golf on Friday morning, started in the rain, but it got better. The sun even came out for us. No pictures of the golf course. It's a shame to, because it was a great one. Called the Warrior Golf Club, it's in China Grove, NC and man, it was nice.

Later that day, we headed out to check out DEI. For those of you that don't know, that's Dale Earnhardt Inc. Can you believe they build race cars here, really fast race cars? When you drive up to this place half of it looks like a hospital and the other half looks like a 5 star hotel! The area that they let you see is really a DEI museum. I have some pics and I'll share later.

I almost forgot! On the way out to DEI I saw one of the most amazing things....A marshmallow field! How awesome is that? Yeah yeah, I know...don't burst my bubble ok?

So anyway...On Saturday afternoon, we headed to Charlotte and the race track. We had GREAT parking! Easy in and out of the race track. I got there, got to my seat...we had great seats!

I looked out and saw this...

I looked up and I saw this...

I looked down and I saw this...

Man I love racin'!

Thanks Miss Catherine and Miss Carolyn! I had a great time! See you next weekend....yeah baby! I'm going back for the 600 this weekend!

God bless America!

  Killing dogs in HS!??!
I just read that they're killing dogs in high school classrooms in Utah!

I was reading the Drudge Report, looking for the new BRAC list when I came across this story.

At first, I was really kinda pissed off! How could they do this to a dog and how could they do this to a bunch of HS students?

Then, as I read a little farther I saw that the students wer ewarned ahead of time as well as parents. The school had sent home notices that this was going to happen. This helped me get over the fact that it was HS students, but what about the dog?

I read a little further and found out that the dog was scheduled to be euthanized anyway! The article said that the dog would be sedated, I assume with whatever he/she would have been sedated with to be euthanized and that's when the procedure took place.

One brilliant HS student, Sierra Sears had this to say, "It just makes me sick and I don't think this should go on anywhere and nobody's learning from it." I have this picture in my mind of this wannabe little valley girl, flipping her peroxide laden blonde curls around as one of her little girlfriends standing next to her says "Totally!" or "Fer sure!"

I would have loved this in HS! All I ever got to dissect was a dead freaking frog!

I feel for the dog. I love dogs. I own two, a big one and a little one. I wouldn't wish this on my buddies, but hey, if they were gonna die anyway...for the good of science!
