Race and Twitter

(Scott AFB, IL) Hi 70 Lo 66 -- Rainy and cloudy all day with a chill in the air. I had a massage appointment this morning at 11:00. It was a half price deal I got through Groupon. The last massage I had was in Tampa, FL so it was time for another. If I do this right I'll get one every six months, alternating between Tampa and here. When I got back home Frank was here to watch the postponed NASCAR race with Jim.

While we watched the race and visited Frank showed us all about Twitter. Jim and I both have a Twitter account, but we don't do much with it. Frank "follows" a lot of NASCAR drivers, crew members, and reporters. He showed us how much they "tweet" during the race. It adds a lot of fun to the race as you learn a lot about what goes on behind the scenes. The drivers don't tweet (of course), but the wives or PR people do. It really adds another dimension to the race.

After the race Frank went home and we relaxed with TV and computers the rest of the evening.

We just may have to figure out this Twitter thing if Jim can follow along on the NASCAR stuff.

Hmmm...Something good may come out of that subscription I have to Groupon after all. Thanks.

I also need to find to find out more about Twitter. All the behind the sceans stuff must be really interesting. I love NASCAR. Missed the last two races since we were on the road and could not get cable.
