Drag Racing at English Mtn Dragstrip 10.2.10

So I got to do some more drag racing on my Harley this weekend at English Mtn dragstrip during Rally at the Strip. I won my 1st two races and ran a 8.2 second ET in one race, the fastest in the cruiser class, but got beat by a Softtail when I spun a little off the line and ran an 8.7. They first said it was double elimination, but in the middle of the races they changed it to single. When I got beat, I thought I was done, so I stopped at the end of the strip to talk to some friends. When I got back down to the starting line area, I was told they were calling my # to run again. WTF?

Tellico Village murder

Have you seen the story about John Lee Nevans, who allegedly killed the elderly man in his home recently? Well, I KNOW JOHN LEE NEVANS PERSONALLY. He is from my home town of Livingston, Tenn and was an old family friend. His father, Dr. H.B. Nevans and my grandfather started a drugstore in Livingston in 1957. I haven't seen him in over 30 years, but it's kinda eerie that I know someone who committed murder. FREAKY

National Guard Seven Seals Award

I was very proud and honored yesterday to be awarded the National Guard Seven Seals Award from Iraqi War veteran Michael Testerman of the 278th ACR, his wife Jenny and Dave Goodman, representative of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR). The presentation (see picture) reads, "Presented to Billy Kidd for meritorious leadership and initiative in support of the men and women who serve America in the National Guard and Reserve". They tell me this is the highest honor that can be awarded to a civilian! Thank you and thanks to all for your service to this great country !

Life Lessons with Jay Mac

They can hold all the peace talks they want, but there will never be peace in the Middle East. Billions of years from now, when Earth is hurtling toward the Sun and there is nothing left alive on the planet except a few microorganisms, the microorganisms living in the Middle East will be bitter enemies.

I Totally Agree

Great grandfathers watched as their friends died in the Civil War.

My father watched as his friends died in WW II.

And I watched as my friends died in Vietnam .

(CNN) -- Leonard Skinner, the gym teacher who inspired the name of the legendary southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, has died. The band announced his death on its website, saying Skinner died in his sleep early Monday morning. He was 77.
