I teach kindergarten through 4th grade. I work with my students to build on there strengths and raise there self esteem. Just like in racing, kids do better when they have self confidence. I work with them individually to show then can do it.
I've been to a few races: Queensland Raceway (my home track), Gold Coast (where you can also see the IndyCars), Melbourne (where you can also see F1) and Adelaide. Most "races" are actually three races - one on the Satuday and two on Sunday, except for the legendary Bathurst 1000.
OMG one of my sisters-in-outlaws(married to one of the several brothers) Dad flew B-17s. He was shot down twice in Germany held in a prison camp the second time for 11 months, she said, till the end of the war. She lost him 19 yrs ago to lung cancer, 5 days before my Father-in-law. My Father-in-law was a B-58 pilot back in whenever, I am not sure. He
served in Nam in 71, same as my Dad. As you can tell, we are a family on both sides of GI's and GI dependants. Proud of it too and proud of how America stands by her troops today. I have some of the best memories of my Dad and how great he was loved by us and all his troops.
