Black Friday Reading Material

It's time for Americans to get up early, head out the door and shop till they drop. That leaves us non-shoppers with some time on our hands while we watch the chaos. Here is a look back at some of the more interesting posts on TDP recently that evoked reader comments. Click on the title to read the column.

I solved this problem with Science. I send others out. Thay have smart phones. They see something on my list they call and they show it to me. If I like it I say, OK.

This does two things: allows me to be there without being actually there and I get the house to myself for an extended period the day after Thanksgiving. Just me and the cats some football and beer. Life, in that space, is good.

No grinding or dropping here.

Good for young Mr Vettel as "Sebastian Vettel set a new record for pole positions on Saturday at Interlagos, taking his ground-breaking 15th in a season to move ahead of Nigel Mansell whom he equalled in Abu Dhabi." as the headline reads at the F1 site.

History before your eyes. 15 individual poles on 15 unique tracks and climate conditions over the world. That Red Bull Team with hundreds contributing, is one Class Organization.

A Hearty Congratulations to Red Bull Team members!

Rain forecast for Sunday, should be interesting to see the outcome in that event.

It's not NASCAR related, oh well. Still it's one historical day in racing history.

I'm out. Carry on.
