    ^ Ohh how times have changed. I can't even imagine surviving Christmas if I gave my wife a scale and a vacuum cleaner.

    I am paying the price for my MIB fun back in September. Mrs. Minuteman is a smooth operator and has got me over a barrel. Have some major winter projects like replacing three bedroom floors, plus all the other seasonal stuff. Additionally my daughter is graduating nursing school in about 3 weeks and on her way to financial independence. Unfortunately we will be throwing a big graduation party for her in December. Throw Christmas into the lot and you see where this is going. I ask what about the Miata front end overhaul?........... ................ Got the Lee Van Cleff squint and I backed down. She got me.

    Drag racer Kat Moller was killed in an accident at Sebring International Speedway on Thursday night.

    Moller was making an exhibition run in her jet-powered car, which is capable of speeds of over 300 mph.

    A witness told DragZine.com that her main chute failed to open at the end of the 1/8-mile strip and that she veered into the wall, but an official investigation into the crash is ongoing.

    The 24-year-old was driving for Larsen Motorsports, which fields several jet-powered cars.

    “Kat has been part of our racing family for 5 years and we cannot begin to express our sorrow,” team CEO Chris Larsen wrote on Facebook. ‘“Your prayers in this very difficult time are appreciated”

    According to her team biography, Moller started racing Jr. Dragsters when she was 11 years old. She held an engineering degree from the University of South Florida and was pursuing a Master’s degree in the same subject at Florida Tech.

    I know the track wanted to promote the dragstrip with jet cars and exhibition cars. That track is too short in case of an incident. Englishtown had a long sand pit well after the end of the track. That's what you want with a 300mph car. Tragedy.
