a sunny break from the rain

it took awhile to recognize the sun out after its been cloudy and rainy the last few days. no complaints about the rain, it was much needed. the farmers were really needing the rain. hopefully they get something for a crop. the grass will get greener in short order now. there should be enough moisture in the ground to do so. times when rain is nice. maybe a couple more days will help.

coke zero 400.

what a finish to the coke zero 400 in daytona. kyle busch took the lead from tony stewart with a lap to go and jummue johnson 3rd. busch tried to block stewart a first time and stayed in front. stewart went to the outside and got the nose of his car past the back bumper of busch when busch tried to block again and wrecked himself. i dont know how stewart kept his car straight but he did and ended up winning it followed by johnson. busch ended up taking two more hits aterwards. not much left of his car. so stewart wins again. next race in chicago next saturday night.
