As I write this, the pre-race coverage of the Daytona 500 is going on. I’m looking forward to a new season of NASCAR racing.
A lot of people think it’s funny that I would like NASCAR. Even I think it’s a bit strange, but what can I say? I really do enjoy the stories and stats from the races. There are a lot of underlying stories that get told off the track. The personalities involved on this type of “sport” are very colorful.
I’m a fan of Kyle Busch (#18 Toyota). I also like Brad Keselowski (#2 Ford), Chase Elliott (#9 Chevy), Denny Hamlin (#11 Toyota) and a few others. The only racer that I don’t like (and when I say I don’t like I really mean I just don’t want to see him win, but as a person I’m sure he’s fine) is Jimmy Johnson (#48 Chevy). Jimmy has a nickname in our house. Jimmy F##king Johnson 🙂 It’s just that he has been so successful over the years that I’m ready to see others win.
This year we will be missing Dale Earnhardt Jr., Matt Kenseth and Danica Patrick. There are a ton of rookies and younger drivers coming up this year and it will be very fun watching how they do.
A lot of teams that have been dominant in Cup racing have changed up a lot. Way too many changes cover here. 2018 NASCAR Cup Driver List
All in all, I think it will be an interesting season in NASCAR Cup racing (I don’t mention sponsors in this blog)
As they say on Fox Sports: “Let’s go racing boys! (and Girl for one more race) ”
Fast Food History is going to be a show about all the fast food places you drive by all the time (or used to). The history of the drive-thru, the burger, the hotdog, Pizza and everything else as told from the perspective of each fast food chain.
This will be a Weekly podcast with a Friday morning release (4am) so go over and get subscribed! FastFoodHistory.org
I have officially killed off several podcasts so I have room for this project.
Dead are: Traverse City Podcast, Geek of the North, 5 Minutes with Mike and Podcast Quick Hits. (along with a couple of private podcasts I was doing}.
I was able to help my dad update the firmware on his drone the other day and we tested it between rainstorms out at his house in the Long Lake Area (Grand Traverse County Michigan) and got some cool shots!.
Saying “Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit” on the first day of the month is supposed to bring good luck.
SO, I say Good Luck for November 2017!
Just wondering if anyone reads this blog? I will be redoubling my efforts here soon. Not sure what form it will take, but watch this space 🙂 -Mike
Our foster dog Elsa (now renamed Allie) found her forever home with Kristin and her family. She now lives in Battle Creek Michigan with her Husky brother, 2 kids and a loving Mom and Dad. She has a BIG back yard to play in and a nice park to go for walks and sniff everything in site.
We miss her around here, but it is nice to be back down to just 2 crazy beagles for a while.
Have a great life Allie!!
Looking at my Facebook and Twitter steams lately, I’m coming to some conclusions. (Yes, I know FB and Twitter are not the best place to see the world through, but a TON of people do so I’m going with it). I think the 2 major parties fans are like football fans. No matter what the team does, they are for it blindly following the party and they feel as long as their TEAM won, everything is OK. If not, all hell breaks loose. <strong> If the President has that much of a effect on your life, you are doing something wrong. </strong>
Let me say up front that I am very happy that Hillary Clinton is not our President. It has 100% to do with HER and not President Trump. She’s very arrogant, dishonest and treats people badly such as the Military and Secret service. When the cameras are off, it’s well documented that she is a total bitch to people.
Just because I’m happy Trump won the election, does not mean I get to defend everything he does. (As my Liberal friends would want me to do). ALL I’m saying is he was ever so slightly better than her. <strong> I will not defend what Trump does if we get into a discussion about it. </strong>
Trump is the legitimately elected President of the United States. The Electoral College <em><strong>IS</strong></em> the law of the land and that is how the rules are. It does not matter one tiny bit that he lost the popular vote. That isn’t how the system works. <strong> Deal with it or Change it, but shut the fuck up about it!</strong>
It does seem funny that the party that says they are tolerant, loving and for the little guy are the ones rioting, marching and spewing hate on social networks. Whenever I post something even SLIGHTLY political (I don’t do it much) I get all my liberal frends asking me to defend some off the wall thing or another. I am NOT the spokesman for Trump or the Republicans. Truth be told, I’m more Librarian. I believe that whatever you do that doesn’t cost me money or take away my rights is fine. I like to say I’m one of the few people that say that All Gay married couples should be able to defend their pot plants with a gun!
I’m not unfriending many people on Facebook over politics. There have been a few. There are people I had on my friends list that are just obsessed. Facebook is not REAL LIFE and I am going to guess NOBODY has ever had their mind changed because of some bullshit Facebook post.
How could we split these two up? Percy (the bigger one on bottom of the pile) was our foster dog for Midwest BREW but… He and Benny get a long so good and he’s just a nice dog, we adopted him.
He’s been here a month and a half (or so). He has the normal Beagle traits such as getting into the garbage, jumping over the baby gate so he can eat the cat food the occasional howling. He’s training Benny well. Especially the potty training part. We haven’t had an “Accident” in the house for over a month!
I look forward to many years of “da boys” playing in the yard, going for rides in the car and other fun beagle stuff.
Now we just have to get his License to be a dog in Michigan as his West Virginia license is no good. Wouldn’t want a scofflaw living in our house now would we? 🙂
