How NASCAR Fans Watch Baseball

2016-mlb-002016 World Series – Game 7
Last night, like a lot of people, I watched the final game of the World Series with the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians. And also like a lot of people, I watched it while following my normal Twitter feed. Now for me, that means I watched a Major League Baseball game with a bunch of NASCAR fans, tweeting about baseball. Talk about some funny tweets. 

But it wasn’t until the final 10th inning when I realized these two sports are more a like than they are different. That’s when the Chicago Cubs brought in their pitcher Carl Edwards Jr. You see, in NASCAR we have a Carl Edwards too. And he is also in the final playoff races to the NASCAR Championship. And that got me thinking about how a NASCAR fan would call the game on Twitter.

Words That Touch The Soul

bobstroody-silhouettes-in-the-nightThe Magic of Poetry 

Every now and then you may come across a phrase out of no where that you can’t let go of. Perhaps it’s a poignant moment in a TV show, a movie, maybe even an Internet meme. What ever it is, the words touch you in a way that grabs hold of your mind and you need to know more.

Thankfully in today’s world your only a little search tool away from looking into the Library of Alexandria and discovering more. That happened to me tonight.

While watching a rebroadcast of Inspector Lewis, one of the characters recites a line from a P.B. Shelled poem “And the moonbeams kiss the sea“.  There was something magical in that phrase and I felt drawn to finding where it comes from.

It wasn’t hard to find. And I’m glad I made the effort. It’s that last paragraph that truly touched my soul.


P. B. Shelley
CLXXXIV

Love’s Philosophy

The fountains mingle with the river
And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of heaven mix for ever
With a sweet emotion;

Nothing in the world is single,
All things by a law divine
In one another’s being mingle—
Why not I with thine?

See the mountains kiss high heaven,
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister-flower would be forgiven
If it disdain’d its brother;

And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea—
What are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?

Get Help For Drugs Dropped from Insurance Plans

insulinThe Price Of Medication Going Up

Tonight on NBC Nightly News, they shared a story about prescription drug prices and the fight between insurance companies and pharmaceutical corporations to cut costs for prescriptions. As the pharmaceutical industry increases prices on drugs people need to survive, everyone is trying to find ways to save money, including Insurance companies.

Congress can act like they’re offended and concerned about the greed being shown by pharmaceuticals. But let’s face it, IF they do anything about it, it won’t help us afford our necessary medications for several years to come. Those average citizens who have a terminal disease can literally be put in the position of choosing life or death because they can’t afford their prescriptions. Those people who have a disease that can be managed, like diabetes, may also be forced into that same position because of the cost of their maintenance drugs.

Now the insurance companies are making a case that they’re trying to “help” us average citizens by forcing the pharmaceutical industry to lower its prices on commonly used medications. Ok, I can understand the concept. If you want to force any industry into lowering its prices, hit them where it hurts most, in their bottom line. But at the same time, you know the insurance companies are doing the same thing to customers that big pharma is doing.  Continue reading

What Smoke Means To Race Fans

Tony Stewart 2016.07.24 at Indy

Tony Stewart Tributes

This past Sunday, 3-Time Sprint Cup Champion Tony Stewart ran his last race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS). It was an emotional weekend for sure. Not only for Tony, but for his family, friends and fans too.

Tony was born in Columbus Indiana and IMS is his home track. He’s also the only active Cup driver born in Indiana who still lives in Indiana on a regular basis. He’s a beloved native son and no one has said how much he’s respected and appreciated in Indiana than Robert Riddle’s article “Logging Laps: The Final Lap“.

As a Stewart fan, I always want more stories like this about the good things Tony does for the Racing communities around the world. I think those things he does that some how sneak out through other sources show the kind of man he really is.

Like the 2013 Kyle Larson Daytona Crash into the fence where several fans were hurt and taken to the hospital. Tony won that race. The first thing we saw him do was ask about the fans. Then he kept his winning celebration very low-key out of respect for those who were hurt. It wasn’t until months later we found out Tony went to the hospital and visited with every fan who was injured. And it wasn’t an in and out, I’m sorry you were hurt. He sat with everyone for as long as they welcomed him. That’s class. Continue reading

Windows 10 Last Gasp – AGAIN! UGH

frustratedMicrosoft Is At It Again and Again and Again

On April 24th, 2016 I shared a method for getting rid of those annoying Windows 10 upgrade reminders that Microsoft installed on your pc, whither you wanted it or not.

Then Microsoft wrote a Malware program to get around that fix. They snuck in a the same update and reinstalled the “Get Windows 10” app (KB3035583) on May 6th. Even when I said I didn’t want it.

The method to uninstall the Win10 updates had been provided by BetaNews who shared a great step by step article to help you with this annoying issue, still works. See Remove unwanted Windows 10 upgrade files from Windows 7 and Windows 8.x

Then on July 16 they’re at it again. This time they installed an update KB3173040 to tell you:

If you have Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 (SP1), the following full-screen notification might appear on your computer:
Sorry to interrupt, but this is important.
Windows 10 free upgrade offer ends July 29.

And now, July 21, they did it again! They reinstalled update (kb3035583). Yes, even if you told them you don’t want that update ever again. Continue reading
