Safety First

A busy day here. Being a residential contractor is a pain in the arse at times. I absolutely, no way out, definitely must be finished with a job I'm on now by Tuesday so that I can meet a starting date of a new project on Wednesday...so I had to work today and even dragged Pattyjo out of the house early {dangerous} to help. The good news is...it looks good for completion on Tues. and the next project is one of those nice clean jobs...finishing off a basement in a log home. It'll be one big entertainment room with custom home theater, flat screen LCDHD, a wet bar all done in rustic cedar tongue & groove and we're even incorporating a few tree sections. I'll take some pics for later posting.

The wreck in last nights Busch race involving Jason Leffler and Juan Montoya left me thinking of Dale Sr.'s death. That was an incredibly hard hit head-on into the safety barrier {wall}. The very unfortunate early demise of the great Dale Sr. prompted many changes into the safety of the drivers. The safety barriers are one of the best changes made and in my opinion may have already saved lives. Tony Stewart's hit at Daytona was no bump and Leffler's slam could have been lethal if it weren't for the safety barriers. Many kudos go out to NASCAR for this and their continued efforts including the COT.
