Mixing It Up In Nascar

From Track Side with Melli & Other Stuff
I know a lot of you have your thoughts about Nascar and your very passionate about those thoughts as I once was. I'm trying to get back to my blogging and ranting and raving which I'm told you all miss.
Some good friends have some very good ideas about Nascar getting back to it's roots for which they have been lost for a very long time. I will rant about that soon, let me hear what your frustrations ect are.
Ciao for now

Welcome Fall

From Track Side with Melli & Other Stuff
Welcome Fall I so so love this time of season, it's the last hot blast of summers heat. The beginning of the wonderful cooler day's. I am going to full the summer Shields off the windows pull back the blinds, and open the windows for FRESH AIR and the wonderful smells of fall. I don't do much during the long HOT summer months so the closer we get to the cooler temps the more alive I become.
Now, for those of you that have E mailed me asking when I was going to start my RANTS in Nascar, as I posted on my Facebook page, I promise I will in February with the Daytona 500.
I have been remiss with my other blog obligations and I do apologize for that, but sometimes life in my very real world does take precedents. I work in a very busy Hospital ER for which I am thankful for, I have a very busy family and friends, so with that said, I will get back to my rants and I am just tickled that some of you that have followed me for through my Nascar journeys cared enough to drop me a line.
Although I am NOT NOT NOT happy about HMS and Mark Martin not making the Chase this year, when OMG let me think here, he finished a very close 2nd last year and NOW sit's 17th in the points,hmmmm let me think a sec here, that's IT!!! They need to leave Mark and crew alone, give him his engineers back and let the 88 figure out the hell is wrong with them.
I can assure you that Mark WILL be a force to recon with next year.
With that said I will say "Goodnight George, Night Gracie" lol Ciao for now

Moving Forward

From Track Side with Melli & Other Stuff
One of the things I try to do if everyday life and situations get out of focus and crazy is say "Just keep moving forward". Move away from what is keeping you down and stopping you from moving forward, it's tough right now, but I firmly believe that with the rough and tough comes rewards of calm and a positive future.
This is so true within Nascar as the Chase for the championship is about to start in 2 weeks and Mark Martin didn't make it. I have been asked how I felt about it and I laugh to myself and say "What choice do I have?" he didn't make it, they are looking to next season and are MOVING FORWARD>>>>>that way>>>>>> and looking I'm sure to figure out what the heck went wrong this year.
Was it the new wing? Tires? Who knows, but they will put there collective minds together and figure it out, starting fresh in February 2011 at Daytona.
I know that with the changes made with the 5 and 88 at the beginning of the year, which was suppose to help the 88 get on track and start at least being competitive, with the moving of the 5's engineers over to the 88, I'm thinking it didn't work.
I have always looked at life with a positive spin on everything through the good and the bad there is a reason for everything we go through, and with that, it's how we respond to life and how well handle problems, what makes us strong.
We can bitch moan and complain about whats going on with economy today and the issues of the up coming 10 year anniversary of 09-11, what good dose it do??? I feel if you/me are good people, being kind to all come in contact with, help others if needed and just LAUGH once in awhile, things would be whole lot better.
Just my thoughts
Ciao for now
