Today is going to be a lot of fun as Allie and I will be heading out to the Guererri Family Racing Party at the Seneca Falls Elk’s Club. We went last year and had a blast and ate some great food as those Guererri’s can make Italian alright. I hope to see you there.
 
Tomorrow we’ll be in the studio as yesterday was almost a day off. You guys know how it goes. I tried but still ended up doing some work. It’s all good though and I look forward to getting out lots of great stories here this weekend.

I had a great time on Thursday as I got to do a ride along with racer/Hamilton Police Sergeant Matt Janczuk. I’m not sure if all of you know about Matt as I didn’t for a while either.
 
 It was so much fun as I get the biggest thrill out of riding in a police car with sirens blaring and light’s flashing. It’s right there with the rush you get driving a racecar. Thanks for letting me hang out with you guys Matt. I had a blast and only wish everyone could do one of these at least once. It will give you newfound appreciation for what they men and women in blue do everyday.

I’ll be laying low today as it is my Mother In-Law’s birthday so we’ll be heading up there to celebrate with her and visit a bit too. It will be a fun day. Then tomorrow Allie and I will head to Seneca Falls for the Guererri Family Racing Party to enjoy some homemade Italian food and watch the SU/Duke game. I’ll have audio up from that event on Sunday I hope.

I had a great day on Wednesday as I got some work done early and then headed out to Romulus to talk racing with the Kuleszo family as we get ready for another season with the Syracuse Microd Club. It is always great to see them and their farm and we all can’t wait to get the season started.
 
Today I have something cool as I’ll be doing a ride along with a local police agency. I just love doing these as it will be the third time I’ve done it.

What a great day it was on Tuesday huh? We got well over 60 degrees and were able to spend a good deal of time outside before getting in some practice with a new ball. I got it last year and it needs oil on it to work properly and I think that goal was achieved.
 
Today we’re going to do some work here in the studio before heading to Romulus to visit with the Kuleszo family and talk about racing with Allie this year. They became our second family last year and it will great to see them at their farm and get reacquainted. I’ve been so busy these last few months I’ve lost track of a lot of people so I do apologize for that. But I’m busy for a good reason. More on that when it becomes time.

I had a nice day on Monday as we celebrated my youngest daughter’s birthday. After some work in the afternoon we had a nice dinner at the house with my dad and my mother in-law before opening presents. She got an I-pod and could not have been happier about it. Kids and technology huh?
 
Originally I was going to take today off but I am off from bowling so I will get in the studio and get some work done instead. I’ll still on-line race later tonight and have fun there but I might just keep going all week long instead.

I had a nice day as I did some outside work early on and then watched the Daytona 500 with Allie. We had to borrow an antenna and watched it from the TV closest to an outside wall. It worked out well and we at least got to see the race.
 
The kids are off this week so no need for me to set an alarm which was nice. I have some more work to do today before my standard Tuesday so I hope to get a lot done before I call it a day.

I had fun last night as I went to the Fulton and Brewerton Speedway Winter Blast. It was great to see some of my racing buddies and catch up on how things are going. It was a really nice affair as they had the races on from Florida so we could keep tabs on what was happening down there. It was really fun.
 
Two of my chats today are from that and I have more that will show up over the next few days. I’ll be trying to get some work done early and then I’ll be watching racing with Allie. It should be fun and I just hope it does not drag out as much as the race did on Saturday.
