Daytona 500

My boy Tony is driving an Oreo/Ritz Chevy car in the 500 - which is only 34 days away! No pics yet.

Kasey Kahne will be driving with this cool Olympics paint scheme in February. Nice!

Book Weirdness

Okay - some weird book titles:

I'm Dreaming of a Green Christmas - yes, it's an eco-friendly take on prepping for the holidays, but this made me think of the patron downtown who made it a white Christmas for everyone in the third floor stacks a couple of years ago, if you know what I mean . . . I sure felt bad for the cleaning woman. She didn't look very happy as she snapped on those rubber gloves.

Homeowner's Complete Guide to the Chainsaw - really? really? My cat friend Lucy - above - says, gimme one of those things, I'll show you to sit on the toilet when I want to perch on it.

Too much snow here! I need to move to NASCAR country, soon.
