Martinsville and Unanswered Questions

My mom, dad, and I went to Martinsville for the NASCAR race yesterday (Sunday). I’ll post some pictures and videos shortly; however, I have two unanswered questions:

1) What caused the fire on the Army car?
2) What was wrong with the #8 (Dale E. Jr.) at the end of the race?

I think the #8 was either low on gas or his battery/electricial system wasn’t up to par for the last 4 or 5 caution laps.

What do you think?


 What do you think?  I’m thinking about writing a post dealing with what I think about the environemnt.  Do you think it is worth it?  Do you think they’ll care about the persepective of a christian on the right?

Google, Their Logo, and Memorial Day

I couldn’t sleep this morning so I decided to read some news on my all-time favorite news site.  While there, I saw a link to an article about Google and their logo.  Knowing that Google has a history of being selective about the holidays they choose to honor, I decided to read it.

Here is a link to the article where an individual sponsored a contest to help Google develop a logo for Memorial Day.  Of all of them, I think I like this one.

This is an update to this article from a few years ago where I mention the fact that Google didn’t change their logo for Memorial Day

Life in Iraq

This article was written by a reporter embeded with a unit in Iraq. Here is an excerpt:

A council member announced he had a cheaper solution, as he pulled out a chainsaw from a box and showed everyone the sharp metal blades the way a magician shows an empty hat to a doubting audience. With a quick jerk, he ripped the cord. The chainsaw roared to life, spewing smoke that was probably going to stain the ceiling.

In the middle of the living room, he shouted in Arabic and made a swinging motion with the live saw, no doubt to demonstrate how quickly stubborn giant weeds would fall, but coming carelessly close to members of the audience. Fortunately, the Marines around us were armed.
