Prayers For All In The Storms today

From Track Side with Melli & Other Stuff

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the terrible tornado's in AL and through out the Southeast.

Mother Nature is very humbling and she doesn't play favorites it's going to take many months or long for them to recover, so lets please give to the American RED CROSS who are now there helping those displaced.

Ciao for now

From Track Side with Melli & Other Stuff

This weekend Nascar is at Talladega the fastest track on the circuit and the scariest, for which I don't watch most of the race lol just the beginning, middle and end that about all I can stand.

I just wanted to point out of few things and seem to get lost in translation over on twitter lol. What I said was with the down turn that couple of years with job loss, home foreclosures ect there is also a downturn at most of the tracks Nascar visits and that downturn is NOT NARCARS fault period the end.

I just I'm really clear about that....Nascar does a good job it's a never ending job with all the intenties that are involved in our sport, so there I hope that clears up any questions as to what I said.

Ciao for now I'm getting my new puter set up lol

Robin Williams On Loving this Country

From Track Side with Melli & Other Stuff


The Plan! Robin Williams, wearing a shirt that says 'I love New York ' in Arabic. You gotta love Robin Williams........Even if he's nuts! Leave it to Robin Williams to come up with the perfect plan. What we need now is for our UN Ambassador to stand up and repeat this message. Robin Williams' plan...(Hard to argue with this logic!)'I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan for peace. So, here's one plan.' 1) 'The US, UK , CANADA and AUSTRALIA will apologize to the world for our 'interference' in their affairs, past & present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those 'good 'ole' boys', we will never 'interfere' again.2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany , South Korea , the Middle East, and the Philippines . They don't want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence.3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave. We'll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of whom or where they are from. They're illegal!!! France will welcome them. 4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit!!!! No one from a terrorist nation will be allowed in. If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here. Asylum would never be available to anyone. We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.5) No foreign 'students' over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get a 'D' and it's back home baby. 6) The US, UK , CANADA and AUSTRALIA will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy wise. This will include developing non-polluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for a while. 7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we go someplace else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be enough.) 8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not 'interfere..' They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides most of what we give them is stolen or given to the army.. The people who need it most get very little, if anything.9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island someplace. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us 'Ugly Americans' any longer. The Language we speak is ENGLISH...learn it...or LEAVE. Now, isn't that a winner of a plan? The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying 'Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses.' She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'you want a piece of me?' ' If you agree with the above, forward it to friends...If not, and I would be amazed if you DELETED it!!
