  1. VIRUS

    Got a call from my son little bit ago. He's a director at KEYETV42. Travis and Williamson counties going on lock-down as of this morning whatever that means. We are already on lockdown at my place as far as I'm concerned. Burnet and Llano counties out here by me currently have one confirmed case each. Currently 86 Travis, 14 Williamson.

    We're good, at least for now. Here's something to think about. How many door handles do you touch in a day's time? How many other people have touched that same door handle before you arrived? How long, if ever has it been since that door handle was sanitized? How about the steering wheel of your car or truck? The gear shift lever, the turn signal lever, the brake release? Have you sanitized any of those? Think about it. Trust me, it's going to get a whole lot worse before it gets any better.

    all it takes is one ------- and then they go back home and take it with them and the sh#t spreads exponentially. ------ and that doesn't even include what they leave behind for the locals to deal with.

    I like it that we can get on here and poke a little good natured fun at one another every now and then. Me and my good friend, 'ol H/T have been at it with each other on here for years. Right now though, maybe we all need to pause and take a little closer look at what is going on around us. I get the feeling there are quite a lot of people out there who are not taking the threat seriously enough. Let's take a look at what happened in our world in 1918. Then, as now there was no vaccine for a particularly pesky little flu virus that was going around. The problem is there is no one left who remembers what happened. It COULD happen here again! I came across this last night on the net. It will be in my next post. Take a look.

    Just remember H/T and BB, the briefer your bikini at the beach be, the greater your chance of exposure be.

    Apparently far more people are flocking to Texas than most of us realize. I know when we built this place up here in Burnet County 15 years ago our next door neighbor down the road and his wife were California refugees. Ironically, he turned out to be Kevin Harvick's cousin.

    My Inference from her remarks, HT is of all the people she'd seen this morning, I was the first who actually IS from Texas.

    THE SCARIEST THING I'VE HEARD LATELY ………………. This morning I spent 2 1/2 hours waiting simply to renew my drivers license in Marble Falls. Finally, my number was called out and I went to the designated Licensing Clerk. I handed her the filled out form, my expiring license and my Pass Port. She looked at the documents for a moment, looked up at me and said, "Oh , you're from Texas!"

    As one driver once said, and sorry I don't remember who it was, he said "We've got Daytona behind us. Now the REAL season can begin." Lot of truth in that statement.

    N-car held a press conference at 9:00 pm. Saw it on foxsports-1. Glad I didn't watch the race. I've come to hate these wreckfest plate races.
  12. Ryan Newman

    Ryan has survived the crash. In serious condition at hospital.
  13. Ford and Hailie Deegan

    If you watched the ARCA Daytona race broadcast you may remember the guest commentator was Ryan Blaney. It's a small world out there. Back when he was running the trucks, I was introduced to Ryan by Dan Longley (member Dano36) on here. I met Dan through this board. We became good friends and attended a lot of races together. Dan was originally from western Pennsylvania, just across the border from Sharon Speedway in Ohio. For several years Dan and his brother were the scoring team at Sharon Speedway. That track was run by Lou Blaney, Ryan's grand-father. The Blaneys were/are part owners of that track. Dan was close friends of Lou and his wife Kate. Dan was a decorated retired US Army Warrant Officer who resided in the San Antonio area after his retirement. Unfortunately we lost Dan a few years ago. What a fine gentleman he truly was. We miss you Dan. Here is the last pic I have of him, with the FLY-OVER Team at TMS.
  14. Sell out crowd at New Smyrna on Monday!

    Nick and others on here. It just seems to me an opportunity is being missed here. I recently did a little online population research. The eight county San Antonio Metropolitan Area population is 2.5 million. The five county Austin Metropolitan Area population is 2.2 million. The two metro areas butt against each other forming an overall 13 county Metro Area of 4.7 million people. There are two dirt tracks here. One on the extreme south (Pleasanton) and one on the extreme northeast (Paige). It just seems to me we have a more than adequate population to successfully support a centrally located modern asphalt track if one were built and properly managed and marketed. Am I way off base on this?
