Thoughts and Prayer For OC Fire Victims

This morning I called my cousin in Yorba Linda Calif where fire has destroyed just about the whole area around his home, his was so lucky thank GOD, just some burnt palm trees, the house was saved, but 6 other homes in the same area didn't survive the ravages a fire that was fueled by 50 to 60mpr winds.
Just know that I'm thinking of you all and it breaks my heart that that area is going through another horrible fire like the one in 81 the Anaheim Fire that just about took out Anaheim, Orange, Villa Park. My husband was working for OCFD at the time and it was a nightmare to fight.
Please keep all the firefighters in your prayers, they need them
Ciao for now

Congrats to Jimmy Johnson #48 Cup Champ

Wow, is all I can say....not since the 70's when Cale Yarlbrough won 3 championships in a row 76, 77, 78 thirty years later Jimmy did it, 2006, 2007 and 2008, and it will be another 30 yrs when it will be done again.
Nascar and the whole racing industry is going to and has felt the slap of the horrible ecomony, they will survive but things are going to change.
2009 testing has been suspended which is going to hurt LVMS (Las Vegas Motor Speedway) testing brings in good money for the week the teams are there, but it's time to tighten the belts and that was a good money saver.
Again, Congrats to Jimmy Johnson, Chad Kanaus and team and a great 3rd win and making history wtg.
Ciao for now
