Bristol…

Not acceptable

AAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

The only thing the Baby Alien did right today is say the COT was a piece of crap!! Oh, yeah! He said he “screwed up”. How humble. Congrats!

I was really hoping that Jeff Burton would just knock his “you know what Uranus rules” out of the way!

I obviously got to watch the race and have access to a computer.

My Grandson “Chase” (get it?), whose Mommy is a big Kevin Harvick fan was real upset. He was screaming:

” I wanted Jr. to win!!”

 I wanted Jr. to win!!

The worst thing that happened today?

I was rooting for frickin’ Jeff Gordon at the end of the race.

**heavy sigh…** Robby?  Hang in there. I still luv ya!

 Tony? Well, my driver will never change. No matter what.

Ryan? Keep your chin up Buddy-buddy. The times they are a changin’… Keep the Faith.

NASCAR Bristol Astro – Predictions

In case you don’t know what my version of the only way the COT can truly make the races more fair, free of cheating and based on the sheer athletic and driving skills of each driver, I figured I better post them again.pedal-car-chassis.jpg                                                                                                                                                          pedal-car-chassis-from-above.jpg

Bristol!! COT!! Bristol!!

Controversy. Tempers. Aggression!!     

Mark Martin would have won this race!!                                                                                                                 

 Tony oops!!

Tomorrow’s scope’s for Bristol have every aspect that signifies the above, in nearly every driver’s chart. One common denominator is  Mars anything Pluto, which is normally about a good time to make babies, also signifies extreme animalistic aggression and tempers. Here are the driver’s who have the aspect as the strongest aspect in their ‘scope:

Tony Stewart, Ryan Newman, Greg Biffle, Jimmie Johnson, Jeremy Mayfield, Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, Dale Jarrett, Jeff Gordon, Martin Truex Jr., Robby Gordon, Kasey Kahne, Jamie McMurray, Denny Hamlin, Juan Pablo Montoya, Casey Mears, and Scott Riggs.

Tony, Jimmie, Carl, Kasey, Matt, J. Gordon, and Martin Truex Jr.  and Ryan Newman all have positive aspects that should balance out the temper issues enough to keep them focused. I don’t expect any of them to get a DNF, anyway.

Tony and Zippi’s scopes are very synchronistic, and the this particular combination of aspect’s usually earns them a win. BUT Jimmie and Chad have the aspects in their ‘scope that always bring them a win.  BUt, then again, Jimmie’s Moon goes void of course this afternoon and he usually wrecks on those days.

The near perfect ‘scope’s this week? Dale Jr., Kurt Busch, Elliot Sadler, Jeff Gordon, Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth,  Kyle Petty, and Jeff Burton. Dale Jr.’s entire ‘scope is posted at Infield Parking.

Kyle Busch ‘scope show’s a  little trouble. Robbie Gordon’s does too. Truth is…both those ‘scope’s show big troubles and disappointments and terrible temper issues. I adore Robby Gordon. You Robby fans, remember…this rough spot is only for a short while.In a few weeks he will be sailing out of it.

Because Tony is my Driver and I don’t want anyone to think I am biased, here is part of his ‘scope:

Tony Stewart, born 20 May 1971
Moon Sextile Mercury
Theme: Tempo increase
Today during the day this influence is likely to increase the tempo of your social intercourse for a few hours. You find it relatively easy to verbalize your feelings.

Moon Square Pluto
This influence can have many different effects, some of which you should be quite careful of. To begin with, it encourages compulsive behavior; your emotions acquire so much momentum that it is difficult not to give in to sudden urges and impulses that may not be good for you in the long run, particularly if you have been trying to suppress your feelings. This influence is least difficult if you deal with your feelings honestly and do not try to hide them from yourself. On the plus side, however, this influence allows you to go inside yourself and find out what you really want in any situation. Emotional self-analysis is very effective now, as long as you are willing to be honest. Encounters with others may also force an emotional self-confrontation which is useful, even though possibly unpleasant.

Moon Square Moon
This influence, although not long lasting, can provide some moments of difficulty and irritation. Your emotions are discordant, and you may be more inclined to get into disagreements with others. This will probably have the greatest effect in your most personal life and domestic situation. Consequently you should watch out for unnecessary conflicts with loved ones. In a group, you will not feel that your interests are in accord with the others’ interests. It is not a good time to work with people or to make any kind of public appearance, if peace and harmony is your goal. However, if you are trying to stir people up about some issue or call their attention to circumstances that must be dealt with, this influence can be quite helpful, although the others may not appreciate your role in this.

Moon Square Uranus
Theme: A bit wild
Tonight the quality of time arouses an independent and rebellious spirit in you. You are inclined to do exactly the opposite of what someone suggests and to reject whatever others say simply because they said it. For the same reasons you are impatient with restraints, duties and responsibilities. There is a great need to be free and to do something very different, maybe even a little bit wild. You have a strong craving for excitement with this influence, and you may act in ways that you would never consider in a more sober mood. This could be either good or bad, of course, depending on how conservative you usually are and how unusual or outrageous the action. For some people this can be a very liberating influence. For others it is a bit too much.

Tony has a few other aspect’s in his chart that reflect very positive feelings, joy, partys, and celebrations. I think he will win or it is someone he cares about’s birthday.

Oh, I forgot. There are a lot of Uranus aspect’s in this race too. You know what that means. “I am coming up your ass.” or “Get off my ass!” or “Get your ass out of my way!” or “Oops! Your ass is out of here!!” You know how it goes. Uranus rules this race.

**I will not be posting again until either late Sunday night or Monday, as we will be in OR. Please pray for me that I get to see this race!! Please Dear God!!! Please!!!

Westward ho for me…Tally Ho and on to Bristol Baby!! to the rest of you LugNutZ!! Have fun!!

P.P.S..

Oops…not only am I not biased, I am stupid.

Don’t worry Ryan. It’s all good.

Ryan Newman, born 8 December 1977
Theme: Heart over mind 
This influence usually denotes a brief period of good feelings and generosity toward others. Today during the day you feel that everything is all right, and you have nothing to fear. You express your self-confidence by being above petty irritations. Not easily angered, you tolerate even the most harsh behavior from other people. But you probably won’t have to contend with “harsh behavior,” because the energy of this influence does not arouse it in those around you. You will get what you give – kindness, friendship and nurturing support. This influence can also awaken your concern for the deeper aspects of life. You may seek metaphysical and spiritual insights, but with your heart rather than your mind. Rational knowledge is not likely to satisfy you at this time.

Tonight you may experience a real conflict between feelings and reason, or you may have a very fruitful dialogue about the state of your soul, either internally or with another person. In the first instance, old habits, prejudices and childhood patterns of thought are very likely to take precedence over what you usually consider reasonable; obviously this is not a good time to enter into delicate negotiations or to engage in an important discussion. As for the other side of this influence, this is a good time to withdraw by yourself or with another person and get in touch with your feelings. As long as you recognize that your emotions are emotions rather than rational judgments, you will not have trouble with this influence. In fact, you can learn a great deal about yourself, because your feelings are very clear. You need to be yourself now and to feel what you really are. In your relations with others, you will project much more emotionally than usual, and if some people do not like this side of you it may be necessary to reconsider your friendship with them. In love relationships, you will experience greater emotional depth than usual, and consequently your experience with a lover will be much more intense. The only danger to watch out for here is that you may be too possessive of the other person. Also you may be so wrapped up in your own feelings that you are unaware of the other’s feelings. Relations with women in general are improved by this influence. Regardless of your own sex, your experiences with them will very likely show you a great deal about yourself in a positive way.  
During this time your feelings make themselves more noticeable than usual – even small embarrassments become extremely uncomfortable. Therefore, if you should make any mistake today, you should not immediately accuse yourself for it, as it is probably not as serious as it seems. This sensitivity, though, also gives you a good feel for the weaknesses and sensibilities of others, so that you can be very tactful and accommodating about them. In this way you encourage others to be open and also admit to their sore points. Your capacity for understanding and your readiness to take due account of personal traits, offers others – for example children – enough security to trust you.

If you want to hear another person view of what Bristol will bring, go read Matt Crossman’s prediction’s. I think he will be right on, except he left Ryan out.

NHRA Star Eric Medlen Passes Away

candle.jpgIt’s a sad, sad, day in the racing world today. Eric Medlin passed away this afternoon. Eric crashed into a guard rail on Monday in a test session at Gainesville Raceway.eric-medlin2.jpg

You can see Eric here in this video racing the John Force at the 06 National Finals. 

NHRA President Tom Compton issued a statement on the passing of Funny Car driver Eric Medlen.“Words cannot describe how everyone at NHRA is feeling after the passing of one of our brightest young stars, Eric Medlen. He earned his way to the top through hard work and perseverance and, in doing so, gained the respect of his fellow competitors.Eric was a great spokesperson not only for John Force Racing but the sport of NHRA POWERade Drag Racing and he will be forever remembered for his enthusiasm, uplifting personality and ever-present smile. He was destined to become a great champion in the sport and all of us at NHRA are grateful and fortunate to have shared in some of his glory.Eric left this sport far too soon and his absence will be felt by everyone within the NHRA racing community. On behalf of everyone at NHRA, I want to send our sincere condolences to the Medlen family and John Force Racing.

You can also read more about Eric’s accident here.  He was 33.

Eric’s bio now reads:

Eric Medlen who had emerged as one of the most popular young drivers in the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series, succumbed Friday, March 23, 2007 to injuries suffered when his race car crashed into a guardwall during a test session at Gainesville Raceway.A graduate of Oakdale (Calif.) High School, where he was a high school rodeo champion in calf roping, Medlen trained under the watchful eye of two-time PRCA World Champion Jerold Camarillo and had contemplated a career in pro rodeo before his father called in 1996 to offer him a mechanic’s job at John Force Racing, Inc.After spending one season on the team on which his father was crew chief, he moved over one pit stall in 1997 to work on the car driven by 14-time NHRA champion John Force. Serving first as the supercharger technician and later as a clutch specialist, he was a member of a team the crewed Force to 50 tour victories and six championships in seven seasons.When Tony Pedregon left after the 2003 season to form his own team, Medlen was Force’s surprise pick to fill the seat, a move that re-united him with his father on the No. 2 team at JFR.

He was the sport’s top Funny Car rookie in 2004, winning at Brainerd, Minn. He won three races in 2005 and two in 2006 including the race contested closest to his hometown — the Fram/Autolite Nationals at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif.

Our prayers and love go out to his family, freinds and loved ones.

I will keep the blog silent until tomorrow in Memory and Honor of Eric. He was a really nice guy.

Astro-Predictions for Bristol.

We are still packing and loading and packing and loading. What a freaking pain.  I wish I weren’t so paranoid about having mover’s come in and do this, but I am. Not that they will break anything so much as steal. I have heard so much bad about mover’s here in the area, that I trust none of them. Therefore it is taking forever.

We have to be at the mine this weekend as the people Dale will be working for are going to be there. We will take the toy/car hauler full of stuff to the ranch, drop it off, spend Saturday night in the 5th wheel and then come home Sunday evening.

I am working on the ‘scopes for Bristol, so they will be up this evening.

Thanks for you patience and persistant reading! Sorry I haven’t gotton around to reading all of you recently.

Later Gaters!!

NASCAR was in Atlanta…

O.k., so my interpretations were way off this past Sunday. Sort of. I knew Jimmie and Tony were linked up somehow, and they were. I was positive they would probably wreck each other and at the end I was yelling “Whooooaaaa!!! It’s gonna happen!” “I told you!”. Dale of course, being the Libran that he is, loves it when I am wrong. He doesn’t just kind of feel some satisfaction. He loves it. Libran’s are generally very competitive. They, however usually don’t think they are. My best friend is also a Libran. Her birthday is Oct. 10th, the same day as Dale Jr.’s. She and Dale are quite a lot alike.

The move is taking so long……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..>

I still have so much to do. Our goal was to be done and leave on Wed., but there is no way that is going to happen. I understand why people hire people to come in and pack and move for you. This is a giant pain in my you know what.

There are downfalls to getting people to help you when the majority of what you tend to collect is rocks, and books. You know…really heavy stuff. I also have a penchant for antiques and other oddity’s. Lot’s of tiny breakable stuff. Our furniture? Well, while it is very cool…it is also very large and very heavy. Bulky.

The absolute worst thing right now is the dreaded packing of the die-cast and the rest of the NASCAR stuff. All at once. We have our own collection, besides our inventory, and just the tubs and tubs and tubs and crates and stand-ups and car pieces and I wanna say “You get the picture.” Trust me. You don’t. (**Heavy sigh…)

HBH L:/RRRRRR

to read some day when he grows up. His mmomma just took him to go nighty night. I wish she would let me post a pic of him on here. She has this huge issue with it tho so I won’t. I told her…”I could put one on there and you would never know it because you don’t read my blog.” She says she checks it….only one way to find that out. Mu-ah-ha-ha…Evil mother I am.

I am really going to miss him. My daughter has stayed here in the house for us while we have been gone so much this past year. I can’t believe he is six month old now.

That also means I am six month’s out on the leg/ankle break. I cannot believe how freaking long that has taken and my doc says I am 4 month ahead of schedule?  Boy, did I learn a lesson there. I think.

Yeah I did. Don’t drink on or before, or after the week that a California race falls on.For those of you that are new to my blog or have forgotton the little syncronicity and timing…the break of the leg was the Thurs. prior to when we were leaving for Fontana, and the Fontana race before that ended me in the hospital too….I fell off  our bus and bumped my head and wracked my back all up, after a few too many of David Stremme’s sponsor’s product. Well, it was Sterling then….

Anyway, I have decided that I will no longer participate in drunken childish acts of fun.

I shall only do them sober, and never on the week of a Fontana race.

I am muttering…tired and should just shut up and go to bed, huh?

Nighty night!!

Sweet Dreams  (** I will be talking about someone’s dream towards the end of the week…quite an inspiring story.)

NASCAR in Atlanta ~ The Astro Remake of “Song of the South” again…

I mean NA$CAR.
Atlanta Motor Speedway… Ryan Newman, in the#12 car, after losing his #1 position is relaxed, yet focused at the rear of the line. The Rocketman sits…ready…waiting…knowing he is going to kick some butt today. He’s in good company sitting back there with Dale Jarrett. D.J. is feeling very disappointed today. Ryan knows what his horoscope says for Atlanta, and affirms to himself:

Ryan loses pole position“My influence’s today stimulates my physical vitality, giving me the chance to work hard and accomplish much. My health is good during this time, and I am able to approach everything I do with vigor and self- confidence. And this carries over to the psychological level as well, as an ability to assert myself toward others and stand up for my views in any controversy. New opportunities to be personally effective often open up under this influence. For example, in my job I might get a chance to take on an important  victory, one I have been waiting for, for a long time. A well deserved opportunity. I know I also have Mars Trine Pluto activity from 18 March to 20 March. It’s theme is: Considerable credit!
I should formulate objectives for long-range efforts at this time. I will find out what I want to change about myself and my world and get to work on those changes. The energy I have now will allow me to keep up a sustained effort for a long time. At work I will be given an opportunity to wield more power and thereby be more effective personally. Today I will be given considerable credit for what I do.”
“Moon Trine Med.Coeli during the day means my personal needs and career needs are balanced, and there will not be as much tension between them as at other times.”

Ryan also knows that Clance’ is wearing the hat he autographed for her. She calls it “Ryan’s Lucky Star Hat”. It clashes with her Tony jammies.

Elliot starts in the #1 position but that will do him no good today. His scope sucks…again. Signs of big mechanical issues.

( Tony Stewart walks up to Jimmie Johnson and extends his hand. )
Tony begins to sing:
“How do you do?
Mighty pretty greeting,
How do you do? Say it when yer meeting..”
Jimmie Johnson sings back, shakes Tony’s hand and looks him in the eye:
“How do you do?
With everyone repeating,”
(Chad and Zippi join in )
“Pretty good sure as yer born.”

They obviously did not read their ‘scopes.

The National Anthem plays…The prayer is said for all the Drivers, fans, and families…

A Mighty Voice is heard inside Tony Stewart’s helmet, one that he thought only he could hear:

“Whilst you can’t ever go back and relive past glories, there are always better ones perpetually gathering. Indeed Tony Stewart , it is written in your genes, your DNA, and chiseled upon the pearly gates of heaven, that whosoever ventures into the jungles of time and space, from that day forward, all things must get better, and better, and better, ad infinitum.”
Oh what a scheme, I done did dream – and I AM the Great I AM.”

Ryan Newman, hearing the same voice in his ear, thinks to himself :

“I think it’s been a long long time
Till the pole brings me round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh no! No, no. I’m The Rocketman
The Rocketman! Burning out my tires in circles past the finish line, here alone!

I am The Rocketman…I AM.

He chant’s: “193.124 ” “193.124”

… And the crowd begins to sing and dance:
“Hee hee ha ha hee hee hoo hoo!
“Boy are we in luck! We’re visiting a real fast place.

We all like a real fast place! A real fast place to go!”
“Take a frown, turn it upside down
And we will find ours we know!”
“Honey fun is what we bring!
We’ve found one thats filled with fun!”

“Honey and rainbows on our way
Where everyone is worth his weight!
Boy are we in luck!”

“We’re visiting a real fast place!
Take a smile and for a while
You’ll find yours we know!”

“Honey and rainbows on our way
Take that frown, turn it upside down!”

Tension fills the air as the crowd, driver’s, and crew hear:

“GENTLEMAN!! Start!! Your!! Engines!!

(VERY LOUD sound effects) VRRROMMMMVROOOOM !!

(Instrumental music to the tune of “The wheels on the bus go round and round” plays in the background.)
The crowd watches in anticipation as the race begins.

Lap 1: Ryan Newman is humming to himself :

I have so many lucky stars!
Boy, they make the darkness seem so far!

When I’m lost they’ll be my guide
I just turn around and all cars will be on my backside!
Come on shine your heavenly bodies tonight
cause I know you’re gonna make everything all right!

These may be my lucky stars
Cuz I’m the luckiest by far!

 The crowd begins to sing to Mark Martin:
“If you chance to meet a frown
Do not let it stay!
Quickly turn it upside down
And smile that frown away!
No one likes a frowning face
Change it for a smile…
Make the world a better place
By smiling all the while!

The race goes on…and on…and on…

Lap 100

Ryan thinks about Carl Edwards ‘scope which is also pretty good, tho not as good as his own.

Tony is heard singing, on his own Directv channel:

Zipp-a-delli-doo-dah! Zippi-delli-ay!

My! Oh my! What a wonderful day!

Ryan snicker’s as he passes him, seeing some frustration suddenly all over Tony’s face.

Tony remembers “Wait!!” “I can control my temper!” “I am in love!!” “It doesn’t matter if the Alien’s stole my happy pills today!”

Meanwhile, the Alien’s, disguised as the Busch Brother’s, are both feeling very intense, tho in different ways. Kurt’s awareness of his personal relationships are overcoming his drive to win. He may not be giving his all out of loyalty, but is tiring of this, and quickly. His little brother has handled himself like a gentlemen lately but that may come to an end today. Although the crowd may not realize there is tension between the Brothers Busch, the stars show that there are. “Hmmm…” Kurt thinks to himself.  “I might have to kick his little rear end pretty soon.”

Eeeyore or Matt Kenseth?  Matt Kenseth might be feeling like Eeyore today. Hope I am wrong there.

Halfway through the race, Jeff Gordon is driving his heart out. He is struggling internally with his love of racing, and the awareness of Life itself. He is thinking he needs to be more careful. He has a child coming. He loves his wife. He wants to be with them for as long as he can. He is “Aware” and thinking of his own mortality now. He no longer feels that he can be reckless in anyway.

Dale Jr. is dealing with a lot of intense feeling both on and off the track, in every area of his life. He may feel a need to retreat and be by himself this evening.

Robby Gordon also is feeling a lot of intense feelings. Some triumphant, some satisfaction and is very happy to have a sponsor on the hood of his car. He is still in the astrological place where his own anger can get in his way right now. He is truly trying to work out his own inner issues. He truly has the total benefit of all in mind. This is also a time where no matter what Robby does, it will attract communication and attention from every conceivable corner of his life. In the long run, it will pay off. That is all that matters. Oh yeah…the other thing that matters is he will have the Motorola Logo on his car. Period. 

Politics and Na$car. Imagine that.

The race continues…still on…and on…and on.

Ryan is now singing “NASCAR ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids
In fact it’s hot as hell
And there’s no one there to raise them, if you did.
And all this science I do understand
It’s just my job every day of the week
I am The Rocketman…I AM.”

Kevin Harvick can’t get Van Morrison out of his head…

“Ooh-wee!
The wild night is calling.
And all the girls walk by
Dressed up for each other
And the boys do the boogie-woogie
On the corner of the street
And the people passin by
Just stare in wild wonder
And the inside juke-box
Roars out just like thunder.
And everything looks so complete…
The wild night is calling!

Jeff Burton after all the excitement of winning the Busch race agin this week, may suffer from an adrenaline crash today. Not a literal crash, but an emotional one.

David Stremme is feeling very good about himself today. He is confident and knows something exciting is happening to him. Look to see him a whole lot more in the future. Big things are coming…

Towards the end of the race it all come down to luck, skill and oddity. Today is also a NEW Moon, on the day of a Solar Eclipse. With this also affecting all the aspects, who knows what could happen. We know it will be fast. We know who’s going to be singing. There will be some surprises.

I don’t know if wearing my Tony jammies like I usually do on race day will help or not. I know I am wearing my Ryan’s Lucky Stars Hat” I think I will wear my cute little pink and black Ryan shirt too. Might as well stay comfy, and wear my black wide legged, cropped sweatpants too. I can feel cute and stylish.

Nope. Can’t do it. Just thinking about it makes me feel like a Traitor. I am wearing my orange and black Tony jammie bottoms with my Ryan hat and shirt. Or layer the Ryan shirt over a Tony shirt over a Robby shirt. Or vice versa. I am wearing the hat tho.

O.K.

Maybe I won’t look as cute as I want, but I will be rooting for my Driver’s.

**By the way, NEXTEL/SPRINT? The attempt to remove the Motorola Logo on Robby’s car does not exactly make me want to run out and subscribe to your services.

NA$CAR? Are your attempts to gain more and more money in your own deals and contracts, going to screw your driver’s out of getting sponsor’s, which would screw you out of money by losing teams? Please. Let’s just get back to racin’. Pretty Please?

As always…As Above, so below.

Tally Ho! Onward LugNutZ!
