Congratulations are due to Brazil.




Last year, I gave a big congrats to the USA bull riding team who came from behind to beat the winning Brazilians for the World Cup win.


Well, the 2010 World Cup was in Las Vegas this year. The teams: Brazil, Mexico, USA, Australia and Canada - five men per team, plus an alternate to cover for an injury. This year Brazil led early and while the USA started to make an impressive come-back late in the series, it was just too late to turn the tide of victory. The Brazil team really deserves the win - they were amazing, especially Renato Nunes, whose inclusion on the team was in doubt at first (for I suspect personal reasons with the team captain - he was riding too good on the PBR Ford Tough series not to be included).

Mother Nature vs. Cars




From The Weather Channel online... picture 5 is from Jackson, MI which isn't that close to me, but its in driving distance.

Also, this slide show will show you why ignoring 'street closed' during flash floods is a really unwise decision. I also learned that a car will not protect you in a tornado - no, wait, I already knew that. It just feels less safe to actually leave a car for lying in a ditch and hoping for the best, but some of these cars... wow....
