There has been a hint of nasal congestion about your post recently, Tom.
Not sure if you have noticed, but I have been trying to breathe to the side of the screen ... seems like everyone I know here has a cold going. Of course, it is winter in SoCal, although it was probably 80 today. I actually had to turn on the AC in the car and scared the hell out of myself because it was putting out hot air (figures, eh?), until I realized that I had hit the recirculate rather than the AC. All is now well and comfy, and I am ready for a preparty and then the big traditional Bakersfield March Meet. Known back many years ago, this was the US Fuel and Gas Championships, and was really an impressive race to attend as my second drag race in California. If you could picture almost 120 Top Fuel Dragsters qualifying, and a 64-car eliminator plus a second 16-car field for Saturday, then a full 32-car eliminator on Sunday with a final runoff between the Saturday and Sunday winner for the overall ... it made quite an impression on me.
But, I digress ... sniff, sniff.
