2nd went to Kevin Harvick
3d was Clint Boyer
Richard Childress Racing (RCR)
owns all three cars.


This was Dale Jarrett's last race in
the #44 UPS Car. Dale races for
Michael Waltrip Racing, (MWR)
Dale's father Jed was also a Race Driver,
he waved the green flag to start the
race. It was a great race!!
My driver Mikie came in 23d and his
other car with driver David Reutimann
came in 20th.

There will not be any Races this next

Dear Bindi,
I am having an ok day, I am home, should be at work, but did not have any appointments. So, I am going to take Son-in-law to Dr.

I am glad your brother enjoys racing too. I agree, I think Mark will like the info.

We are having a mixture of weather, a little warmer, foggy.

I hope everything goes easy with moving, I know it is hard work. I am still unpacking.
I do hope you get to "sneak" away!
Will miss you!!

Hugs and love,
Debbie

Robyn,
Always love to visit your beautiful blog, love the pinups!
I wish we all lived closer, it would be great to go to the "Cafe" and see what is happening,LOL.
Well, I would always work you in for a trim if you're ever in the Land of Cold and Snow!!
We are all looking forward to Summer...oops I forgot Spring...

Are your "trunks" getting better?
I sure hope so.

till later
Hugs

Dear Debbie,
Thanks for the update on NASCAR. How about Richard Childress Racing getting all three spots on the podium?!! "More **se than class", we'd say over here. Once again, I like the photos that you post. It was great of the race organisers to let Dale Jarret's dad, Jed wave the green flag to start the race. It is 8:30 Friday night 'downunder'. The start of a four day break for Easter. Good Friday and Easter Monday are National public holidays. What an indolent lot we Aussies are!:)
Do you have a long weekend for Easter in the 'States?

Best wishes to all,
Mark.

p.s. The next V-8 race will be in Hamilton, New Zealand, April 18 - 20.
p.p.s. Congrats on winning the Snowmobile Race :)

Thanks for keeping us updated. I don't have to watch NASCAR, I can just come here for all the latest news and Highlights, and with Mark covering the V8 race from Assie, we are covered with our Racin'. Forrest has become a huge Racin' fan. It scares me. He is really getting into fast cars ever since we bought a PS2 and the Need for Speed racing game. My husband and He plays that game constantly. Nathan and I are not very good at it, so we usually entertain ourselves with something else. Talk to you later.

Mark,
Yes, we do have a long weekend here in the states. Today is Good Friday. There is no school here in my town. Some areas start their "spring break" today. Ours starts next Friday for 11 days. I always have to work on Good Friday so I don't usually get to go to Church. But I will go to Mass on Sunday.

I am sure Richard Childress was extremely Happy about his 1,2,3 at Bristol!!!

Well, I am going to relax this evening,:). I think I will start now...
Enjoy your long weekend.

Hugs and love to everyone,
Debbie

Bindi,
Thank you again for the award, I will post it over the weekend. I am going to *lurk* a little more before *sleeping* tonight.

Hugs and love,

Well, basically, I guess I'm just wondering what the racers think of my hair?! Give them my blog address, okay? I'll be waiting. Oh, and I want the Aussie racers too. So please give Mark a heads up.

All my favorite people are here, except for a few slackers. You sure have collected some pit crew. Bindi's running for tea to calm the nerves of the "tire changers (me and Cecile!)" and Mark is cheering us on in that new crazy hat he's wearing! You think we can win? Well, perhaps if I.V. can put the gas in the tank instead of the flask in his mouth and Leah can get out of Texas long enough to communicate instructions via head phone, I think we have a chance. Brian, who knows what he's supposed to do. He's raking in so much money at the cafe he thinks he's on holiday every day (he's about to get a rude awakening). And Robyn. Well, you know Robyn. She's out on the track with her Dodie Dolls trying to lead our car to victory. I think she's mistaken them for a carrot on a stick. Go figure.

Honey, I'll see you at the cafe. Bring your best apron ~ we're going to need it because Cecile is on vacation.

Love you honey and HAPPY EASTER TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

Suze XO ;)

This 18,000 BTU heater took my frigid van from frozen to balmy in less than 5 minutes. It needs to be cleaned every month with commercial condenser coil cleaner to keep it free from dust, dirt and lint of any kind. It has been estimated that a homeowner can save as much as five percent on the water heating portion of their utility bill for every ten degrees that they lower the water heater temperature setting. Water bottling companies tend to use reverse osmosis technology. Just the mere presence of a fireplace in a home lends a feeling of comfort and coziness.
