Justin Wilson won the 2009 Watkins Glen Indy Grand Prix. In what could only be discribed as perfect weather, The IRL put on a great show once again at Watkins Glen International. If there was any comments for improvement of the racing, it would be to add better quality supporting races during the weekend. But one things for sure, keep the current weather selection!

Well today it was 117 degrees! The photo above of my hotel shows that I can at least stay cool. I have 3 options, stay in the room, go to the pool or jump in the sea! Today I hit the surf, it is pretty warm and the sand was really hot! I remembered my bathing suit but….forgot my sandals.
I am attempting to use the new Windows Live Writer which should let me write my blog entries offline and then at upload my entry when I get the chance up to the 6bearsfarm website. It should also send an email out to everyone on my distribution list to alert them that there has been an update to the website.
Tonight I had to get out the the room and went into Kuwait to get some wings at the Hard Rock Cafe’. They were pigeon wings! I took this photo looking down the coastline towards the Kuwait Towers.
Below is a satellite view of Kuwait City. I am staying in Al Fuhayhil.
