...to go 180 miles per hour at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway! A Muncie, Indiana great-great-grandmother wore her checkered-flag blouse to the event and excitedly crawled into the Dallara/650 horsepower two-seater with driver Andy Luyendyk, Jr (2006 Indy 500 veteran and son to the two-time winner). The precious grandma was cashing in on a gift certificate her children had presented to her for an "Indy Racing Experience". Apparently she has been attending the Indy 500 races since 1965 and loves the excitement, speed, and especially the noise.

To all our employees that have or are actively serving in the armed forces, I salute you! We are approaching Memorial Weekend 2008 and I wanted to take time out and reflect upon it and share a little trivia about this recognition.

My neighborhood gas station is fattening up even as my favorite Mexican restaurant is thinning out the chicken in my quesadilla.


I can now buy beer, beef jerky and a toy that too closely resembles an AK-47 at my cluttered Valero station, where the owner is desperately trying to sell something that makes him money 'cause the dollars spent on gas don't.

This is the madcap time when California legislators jockey to get their bills out of the "suspense" file and moving through the Senate and Assembly. Anything that costs revenue, well, LOL.


"Suspense" is supposed to have an Indiana Jones feel, not paper-pushing politicking.  But the LOL used to mean "lots of luck," but has morphed in the text-messaging world to "Laugh Out Loud."  Every occupation comes with its own slang.
