Ups and Downs of the Week.

Neil Armstrong – Neil Armstrong died this week. Armstrong was one hell of a courageous man. To go to the moon in a tiny capsule and step out there into the unknown took some serious guts. And yet upon his return he quietly went about his business with no fanfare or hoopla. His dignity matched his courage. He was the epitome of an American hero. And he was one of a small group of moon walkers that is getting smaller all the time.

Weather – More much needed rain this weekend, but sadly it’s going to rain all through the long weekend thanks to Isaac.

Red Sox – ‘Nuff said.

Formula One – F1 returns this weekend and it’s at Spa-Francorchamps, which is a classic circuit with the greatest turn in all of racing, Eau Rouge.
