This is close to the last 1.6 CW I ran except for a cone halfway between turns 4 and 3. Going CW you bearly notice it, but when running CCW it does move you over to the drivers door a bit. It's quick and fun either way.
Do not cuss the webmaster until you have walked a mile in his shoes. Good ones are hard to find.

I know you guys don't like nationalized health care like in England scare.gif , so how do you like their version of free petroleum products? Take your pickem up truck to LA go to the beach and pick up all the free oil you want. BP even says they will pay you for giving you their oil i-m_so_happy.gif . They say that to all the girls, but so far it's all talk and IOU's. Gasoline? that part is DIY focus.gif . Motor oil, easy just strain well. Fold that kleenex twice. Also makes good clothes dye and for your hair, gray away. Crude oil smells good too, blink.gif a little dab will do you. It's the choice of everyone on the offshore rigs, and the girls, they cannot get away, unless they can swim 120 miles. Now you don't have to buy those kids a slippy slide just pour the crude on the driveway and you don't need water either. Nice and warm on a sunny day. If the Coast Guard gives you a hassle about the oil running back into the bay and Gulf, tell them to go look that's where it came from. The seafood, what a time saver, just throw it in the pan it's already greased and ready to fry. You'll love that natural crude flavor, unlike anything you've ever tasted bad.gif . Enjoy boating, upkeep could not be easier, run through a slick and the motor is lubed and rust proofed and it will kill most of that bottom growth. Some say it makes your boat faster, well when that crude lights off you will wish it were faster. A word of advice from my old boss, when going through Golden Meddow (Altitude 3' above sea level, sometimes) on the way to Venice (they have the best oily beach) stay under the speed limit and obay other traffic laws. The Chief of Police is rebuilding his third house in 6 years and needs labor and credit cards. It's nice to be old enough to remember when the U.S.A. was a Great Country, a free country. But my mind is gone so those are just memories, or dreams...
Spyderguy this is your fault for that link.
I was able to work on the car today so it was A GREAT DAY. I have to remember do not watch the news, do not read the paper, stay on car and camera sites while on the internet, otherwise the mind takes off on an endless rant.

Hi all,
The GP is over but the excitement lingers. The net connection is slow here in New Hampshire so I'll add some photos after I get home. On Friday we were a little late and the 1600cc formula class, like SCCA Formula Ford, was all I saw. While they were not as fast as the F1's they drove well and aggressively, but no serious wrecks.
I'll add more later,
Bill

Hi handdoc, I see you have a problem reading. I said that I have been there and done that. That means I have taken several pay cuts because of economic reasons at different jobs. I went into detail on the last time with Sperry Sun. I was cut from Measurement While Drilling Engineer to Mud logger, which pays about 1/2 what the engineering position does. What I cannot understand is what you think you will accomplish by punishing the retired and disabled. We have nothing to do with our government being broke. That is why the payments have been cut. Ask Mr. Greenspan for that answer. I am not asking any one to force a Dr. to treat anyone just for the Dr.s who are already treating a patient to continue. We are all paying for the crime that took our money and the Dr.s will have to suffer with the rest of us.

QUOTE (handdoc @ May 29 2010, 02:18 PM) *
Bill, like I said before, I sympathize with your plight.
However, your statements regarding how doctors bill for their services are all inaccurate, at best.

And you know what? Nobody can force a physician to treat any particular patient. It's called freedom of practice.
The only time a physician is obligated to treat a patient is if 2 conditions are met:
1.the doctor is on-call for the ER
2.the patient has a medical condition that's considered an emergency (life or limb are at stake).

The rest of the time we are free to choose who and how we treat them.
The day that changes is the day that I, and countless other doctors, will stop practicing medicine alltogether.

And your point is that doctors should treat you, regardless of the prevalent economic/financial climate.
Why not fix the problem?
That's a novel idea for you.

Like I said, and notice that you didn't answer my question, would you show up at work tomorrow if your employer told you he's going to reduce your salary by 21% effective immediately, and by 35% in another 3 years, yet he expects you to work just as hard as yesterday? (actually harder, as there'll be more "clients" coming to use your services). I think we both know the answer to that question.


Your choices in life are just that. YOUR choices in life.
So don't for a second try and tell me how to lead MY F-ING LIFE.
I wish you the best. I'm done discussing this issue with you.

Hi Randy, I have nothing against earning money legally. I have nothing against Dr's earning a lot of money, they work hard for their degree and while they work. Entitlement? I pay for insurance I pay for medicare, I have worked harder and smarter than most people at my jobs. I have paid taxes and social security all my working life. Because our elected representatives, both parties, have plundered the SS account that is no longer going to last long. This is not a "giveme", I and other workers paid for it in full. When I go into a store and they refuse to serve me I can just go to another store. When all the Dr.'s in town refuse to treat the disabled and retired on medicare, what choice do we have? I don't know who you are talking about in your rant about the poor, unmotivated... if they have not worked they are not on SS or medicare, only people who have worked 40 quarters or more are on that list.
Bill

QUOTE (RandyB_987 @ May 29 2010, 08:07 AM) *
We're not banning anybody...not for their opinion, at least.

What is so wrong about being motivated by money!?!

It is becoming clear that to some all prosperity is ill-gotten...that self-motiviation is wrong...that excellence is over-rated...and that living rightly and observing the patterns of life to see it's opportunities is exploitive.

What is left is the poor, bitter, unmotivated, critical, self-righteous, unsatisfied mass that vote for "hope and change" because of the greatest and most selfish and money-grubbing motivation of all - the feeling of entitlement to receive money beyond what they have earned. That redistributed wealth and benefit is not anonymous, it comes from the big quarterly tax checks written by real people...on this forum. Those people will likely NEVER receive their SS or Medicare benefit! They, who've paid in the most, will be excluded and reduced.

Who, then, is really after money, money, money?

Hi handdoc, My sources for the payments made to Dr. are right from my Dr.s billing schedule. It's on every statement every month from my medical insurance. Amount the Dr. requested, the amount the insurance co. paid, amount paid by medicare, amount due to me. Choices? I did not choose to get medicare and every one else who is of retirement age or disabled did not either. I did not choose to get sick, it just happened. It may have been the food on the rig. when the price of oil was down all they served was deep fried every thing, fried in lard. I would have to swim 120 miles for another choice. You did not answer my question What did the Dr.s charge the Haitians they treated? Do Dr.'s still take the Hippocratic oath? What does it say? Why do you want me to fight for higher payments for Dr.s who do not give a shit about their older patients on medicare. I'm not talking just about me but all retired and disabled people. For a young person to face a lifetime of paying cash for medical treatment will be a huge challenge. Fix the problem? I did not cause the problem. I have written to my Congress people and Senators about this before it was passed and they no longer even send a letter of acknowledgement. I have written news media who have published my submissions on other subjects (New York Times, ABC television on line, Christian Science Monitor) but not on medical care. What more do you want me to do? I know this current Health Care Law is junk but our elected representatives made it up and the pres signed it. I have to live with it until it is changed but you will not. I will die* for this but you do not care. *Well, die sooner. Do you have a family member or friend on medicare? Will you help them or let them die with out BP medicine, Diabetes medicine like insulin, etc? They have to have a prescription to buy the medicine.
Bill
I'm keeping this up because you and other Dr.s who feel as you do have not thought this through. Your lack of action will kill your friends and neighbors and maybe family. How do you think their loved ones will feel about the Dr. who would not treat their family member or friend, just because they were old.

I saw this too. It would be neat to only drive a few hundred miles to see a major road race and F1 event. Laie_68.gif Laie_68.gif Laie_68.gif We got to see the Houston GP but it was the last one. The only draw back may be the time. Can TX get a permit or permits issued in that time period? Can Austin? With enough money and illegal labor anything can happen. Send those National Guard trops home for a while. sarcastic_hand.gif

Hi handdoc, I only spent 16 years in school longer than that as I had to go to college after work for 7 years before getting my engineering degree. Yes I had student loans. My wife is still paying on hers. I got a job with Sperry Sun oil service company. After a year there the price of oil went down and most of the new people were let go and a few were offered jobs as mud loggers, a big demotion, but I liked the people I worked with and the challenge of the job so I stayed. I enjoy learning new things and the job as mud logger allowed me to be better at all phases of my new chosen career. Later I found this commitment gave me the experience to qualify for the highest field engineering position they had. I had just passed the test two days before I had the Meniere's Disease attack. Did you get paid when you went to Haiti? If not, did you receive any other benefits from going? You know that BS from the hippocratic oath and all that crap. Have I ever had a pay cut? Been there many times and done that. But I have never punished a customer for something my boss or the government did. If you want to protest do not direct your anger on those not responsible for the problem. As for your economic theories, I could just say "Bull Crap", but I can explain in written words what makes a good economic theory to run a large country like the U.S.A. Can you explain your theory or does Rush Limbaugh have to do it for you.

QUOTE (handdoc @ May 28 2010, 11:29 PM) *
Oh, and one more thing. Your comment:



Is 100% pure Bullcrap!

Let me put it to you this way:
Would you spend anywhere from 15-20 years of your life getting trained to do any kind of job, while at the same time amassing a significant amount of debt (an average of well over $100K), and then have the government tell you that all of a sudden you'll get paid 21% less money for you work, and that in two years that amount will be going to 35% less, yet all the while your taxes keep going up each year?

Answer that honestly, cause it's quite easy to judge someone else when you are not in their position.
Sorry if I sound a bit harsh, but like I've said time and again before, I just don't take well to bullshit.

So there is nothing wrong for boycotting a group of people for having medicare because they are of retirement age or disabled by social security standards. I have no problem with political protest, and or trying to change a law you think is wrong. It is not only our right as American citizens but our duty to right what we perceive as wrong about how the country is being run. But when Dr.'s stop treating patients just because they are of retirement age and or disabled that is going to kill many patients. We need treatment and medication, or die. Before 2/3 of the Dr. in Corpus did not treat medicare patients. Now I have called many Dr.'s trying to find one. So far none will take me or any other patient on medicare. Some one implied that medicare was welfare. I have to pay for my medicare and I also have insurance from my wife's job that we pay for. I'm not asking for welfare. What other arrangements would you suggest. If you pass by an accident and do not try to help the injured person in some way and the injured person dies you are guilty of manslaughter. What do you call it when a Dr. refuses to continue to treat their patients because the payment drops a little. Did I say drops a little? Yes, my insurance pays most of the bill and medicare just picks up the deductible in most cases. In every case Dr.'s have several different charges for each visit or treatment, one for cash, the highest, insurance, lower, and medicare, the lowest. This is a system is a system that defies logic. When a patient pays by cash the Dr. has that money right then. With insurance he has to wait until the payment clears, more than a month sometimes, the same with medicare. Yet the patient paying cash is often the least able to afford the treatment and has to pay the most, they have a job that does not have a group insurance, most small businesses and small businesses are the largest employers in the nation. I discovered this the hard way. I fell in a hotel bathroom and my insurance refused to pay for the rotator cuff complete tear and the Dr. wanted to charge twice what he would accept from insurance. As a patient I had no choice about going on medicare, it's automatic when you are disabled or reach retirement age. I see, now it's OK to kill old folks to make a political statement. What if I did that, they would arrest me, so I don't. Why would you?

Antifreeze? Ethylene Glycol is the one that smells and tastes slightly sweet. It is very toxic. Some companies in China were selling it labeled as Glycerin to mix cough syrup, tooth paste and so on. thank_you2.gif In Panama thousands of children were killed. China had some quick trials and the companies owners were put to death. hang1.gif Propylene Glycol is some times used as a less toxic version of antifreeze. At high dilutions it is used as a humidifier in foods and cosmetics, and that humidifier for your fine cigars. It does have some CNS toxicity but the cigar smoker will not notice it. pioneer_smoke.gif More worthless facts from the know it all. prankster2.gif Bill

The new health care bill has simplified my life.Now I have no Dr.'s to go to. My current Dr. has sent me a letter telling me to find another Dr., he no longer takes medicare patients. So far I have found no Dr. in Corpus Christi that does. Now I don't have to worry about taking my pills, no more Rx., No more checkup's, no more trips to the ER, and I am not alone as everyone who is of retirement age is in the same situation. Now I no longer have to wonder what the motovation of Dr.s is, money, money, money.

The health care bill passed is a farce. The Republicans put in a bunch of trash so the bill would not pass. But surprise surprise (that's in Gomer Piles voice) the Democrats were stupid enough to vote for it. Now you and I have to live with it and pay for it. Be careful of what you wish for, you may get it. We did and we have to eat it now. No I do not think what the Democrats put in the health care bill was any better. Crap + Crap=Crap scaut_en.gif

Hi Spyderguy, Are there any go cart races in the Corpus Christi area? I have been out to Bill Whitt park and could not find any trace of a track. Of course some days I cannot find the floor with anything but my left shoulder. sarcastic_hand.gif hay! thats not funny! You were saying it upset you to see your son wreck and turn over. I understand. Long after I had stopped Motocrossing I went to Kingsville to just watch a race. They had a huge pile of dirt for a hill. 10' to 12' high. After the older riders had finished their races the kids went out, 6 to 10 years old. On the the same track. These kids were fearless they hit the hill full speed and some would clear the hill and land on the flats. I know from personal experience that is not the fast way around. Their parents would go over get the kids bike started wipe off the tears and blood and send them off again. About two months later one of them got killed ant that was the end of that. I have no children and I think children should face some risks but the parents should have good judgement about how much risk a child should take depending on the childs maturity and skill. There I said it, "good judgment" does it have any set meaning? Thats what causes rules, regulation, and laws.

Hi All, I hope none of you thought I take anything on this forum personally. thank_you2.gif This is the Ring, a place to speak our minds (and let others see what you should not want them to see, and quit hollering just to hear the echo when your in here) and sometimes rant about politics. He who rants about politics shouts at the wall, the wall does not change from the noise rtfm.gif . Still it's good therapy to rant a little.

Hi Randy, Better watch out what you say about the "disabled" like me, you may join the club anytime. It's so much fun, you work hard all your life, have a modest pile for retirement, and bam you can no longer work for a living. In pain all the time but to the casual observer you look healthy. Then they say behind your back "look at that slacker". Then the mutual fund you trusted invested in a bunch of dot com junk after they sent you a letter saying they would not do that. So much for the retirement fund. And the fun never stops. But it will some day. The pain sometimes makes you wish sooner than later. The poor are in a similar position. That old IQ test and the Bell Curve. 50% of students are above 100 and 50% are below. They say it takes 120 to just get by in College. That means 65% can not pass college. 50% of the population are below 100 IQ. Ten years ago GM employed something like 500,000 to 600,000 people. Now it is 10% of that. Why did they leave? automation, robots. And that magic answer to the Republican CEO, outsourcing, to India, Mexico, China, Canada, even Texas. While we can see the result of the CDS scam here and in Greece and the rest of the world foolish enough to get into that crime. The loss of skills, infrastructure, and negative cash flow in our balance of payments from outsourcing can bring us down to third world status in a few decades alone. Walk a mile in another mans shoes before judging him.

Hi Handdoc, Better stick to fixing hands and leave the economics to those who understand it. I personally think raising money to operate the government using an income tax is a poor way to do it. For those who earn hourly wages it is an easy system. When they try to determine how much a business owner earns it produces more questions than answers. As I am sure you know. But the government must be funded is fairly as possible. No matter what the Libertarians, Free Market Capitalists, and Ayn Rand believers say, with out an effective government there can be no civilization. We would just a few fossilized bones of a species that was too weak to survive alone. If you want to know how the tax code works and if it is legal ask your CPA not some faceless idiot on the Internet. After all they even let me on the Internet. And yes I do have all the answers to our current problems. I know I'm not GOD but I am almost as smart as the same word spelled backwards. Well my dog anyway. When it rains she lies under the eve of the storage shed so she gets as much water on her as she can get. crazy.gif How I look to a Republican explaining Economics to them. russian_ru.gif How the Republican looks to me. This is also how the current crop of Democrats look. I can not understand why the Republicans hate Obama so much. When he came into office he hired all of the crooks that stole our money from the
Bush administration. He passed that nonsense Health bill crafted by Republicans. We are still in Iraq. We are still now fighting a war in Afghanistan just fooling around getting our military personal killed. Letting the Afghans grow all the opium they want that they sell to Al Qaeda to fund their terrorism. For instructions on how to fight a war, look at the old news reels of Germany and Japan just after the war ended. A war stops when one or both sides can stand it no longer. And just like the drunk with a 3 day hangover, they say "never again." Till the next time.

Hi Carlos, You might want to bring a spare set of brake pads. Just so you can stop, going back home. Or even the second lap of practice. That WWII concrete has lots of traction and your tires and brake pads will show it. scare.gif He's showing the thrill of seeing the car in front slow for a corner and he doesn't. Just turn that round thing in your hands one way or another.

Time flies! hunter.gif It seems like it was just last week I watched the Spanish GP, duh it was. My least favorite driver won in Spain and now in Monaco. Last year Webber would lose position on start to hit or run someone else off the track. He belongs in a destruction derby not F1. For little reason I like Button. He was on Top Gear and came across as a pleasant guy and a skilled driver. While watching the Spanish GP Schumacher had more traction coming out of corners keeping Button from passing. I wondered if the longer wheelbase moved the center of gravity back enough to help the tires stick. With such evenly matched cars and drivers a tiny change wizard.gif can make the difference between 1st and 10th.

Wow that's just what I wanted until I saw the tire size:( girl_cray.gif I live in a city with advanced speed control called by the code word "Pot Holes". These speed control devices designed by the city council and Mother Nature tend to produce dents and cracks in auto wheels with tires with less than a 90 sidewall ratio. You can spot a new AMG MB by the low profile tires. By the second week it has different tires and wheels on them. The broken and bent parts make a nice conversation piece for your den, so it is not a total loss. sarcastic_hand.gif

And now a word from your socialist some times non driving worry wart. What has been passed off as public health care is a bad joke. First the Demo's asking for more than they want so they can bargain down to get something. The Repubs entering the most undesirable sections to make it fail and surprise surprise who gets the prize? Me and you. Does it still hurt when you go #2. They gave it to us dry with splinters. Will this plan save money? sarcastic_hand.gif No! Will it help get medical care for those who could not otherwise afford it? to_pick_ones_nose2.gif No, they still can not afford it and now they are breaking the law. superstition.gif
The answer is full tilt public health care. No insurance, no copay, you will pay one bill to the government agency that runs the program. The budget will be adjusted yearly to keep the program revenue neutral plus a surplus for major disasters. No fraud because no money changes hands from patient to Dr. or Rx. Medical school will be paid for with this program. Dr. and other medical personal will be paid about what they make now. Only they will earn a salary not by piece work. Paid medical school school should help produce more medical Professors and new Dr's. If and when there are enough Dr.s and other medical personal the normal work week will be 40 hours. Dr.'s clinics will be open 24-7. So when you have a reaction to the new meds. you can see some one who knows your case or at least has the records on hand and the ER can be a real ER.
Is this socialist? No! In capitalist economies the market is divided into voluntary and involuntary. Involuntary markets are best served by the government, fire departments, police departments, military, health care, power, water, sewer and more.
I see several of you saying we will get rationed care, with the current system maybe but the old system only wanted to treat those with minor ailments if you are really sick the insurance will drop you like a hot potato. Guess what, Dr's and pharmacys charge you more for paying cash than they charge the insurance Co, lots more. Nothing wrong with that is there?

End of life? Just from what I have seen modern medicine is both a miracle and a curse. If you have something curable it's wonderful, if not, it's hell. Massive stroke? 85% brain dead, the machines keep the body alive. Then the family has to make the decision to keep going or pull the plug. My mother-in-law had this and my wife had to do the dirty work. Alzheimer's? Does the patient know what they are doing when they continue to pull out the feeding tube? My step mother. My mother had MS same story. In life there are few easy answers.

Hi handdoc,
One more lap and one or both of them would have holes in their tires. Hamilton's tires went first then Button's. Still Buttons 2 stop race allowed him to beat faster cars and drivers. He is a smooth and consistent driver which allowed his tires to last longer. It was an outstanding race, lots of action with a minimum of crashes. Some body needs to get Schumiker a RED car.

Wow this Obama must the first politician to buy votes. Come on there is lots of better stuff on Obama than that. All of them Republican, Democrat, Libertarian do things to attract votes. How about Obama refused to have the justice department bring charges of war crimes against G. W. Bush and company. Sorry that's my pet peeve. It was until Goldman Sacks, Greenspan, John McCain, and many more stole all of our money with that CDS swindle. Obama hired the crooks that did that crime into his administration. Maybe he is a closet Republican and getting a cut of the take.

Unions: Bill says, A union is a sign of very poor management. My management professor hated it when I said that. But he could not find fault with the logic.
