I snapped my collarbone like a dry twig once doing jumps on a 125 dirt bike. I came down on the front wheel and the handlebar hit my collarbone. Ive broken lots of bones but that was the worst pain in my life. I had to sleep sitting upright for about a month because it hurt too bad to lay down. biggrin.gif
Correct,Tramahawk is a helicopter.Snapped a few collarbones myself and broke both at the same time,man that sucked,right one had to be plated.

If you ride/race dirt bikes, you are going to break bones; which is why I stuck to the street (but I have scars from that too biggrin.gif).

Watched the afternoon practice session from Monaco today and, as always, loved the venue. What a place! There is zero margin for error as Grosjean proved when he wiped out his Lotus. Thought it was fascinating to watch a huge crane lift the car off of the track while they were cheek by jowl to some of the fanciest real estate in the world. F. Scott Fitzgerald was right, the rich really are different from you and me.smile.gif

By comparison to Monaco, midtown Manhattan, Bel Air, and Palm Beach are low rent.smile.gif

The horror in Moore, OK happened almost 20 miles southeasst of me thank God but we had a couple of tornado warnings where I am and the sirens went off both times. One of my daughter's coworkers who lives in Moore had her house leveled but no one was hurt. Because of the tornado warnings I had a comforter stacked near the walk in shower in the master bath, which is where I go if it gets really bad. Fortunately I have had to take shelter there only once but that time, when my family and I came out, all the trees in our my front yard had been leveled. In the 45 years I have lived in this house the worst damage I have had to the structure has involved only roof shingles, dented guttering and siding, and some broken glass from hail. Insurance pays for that sort of thing, of course, but going through it is still a pain in the fanny.

The Moore tornado was so violent that there was no place to go to be safe from it, short if a purpose built underground shelter. A women went into the 7 Eleven store near the huge Moore Warren theater and took shelter in a walk in cooler. I would have thought she would have been safe there but she died when the building collapsed on her. The pictures of dead grade school kids on the front page of this morning's Oklahoman are images I can't shake yet. We'll be all right though, folks around here persevere. Always have, always will.

Forecast for the Monaco Gran Prix

Sunday: Sunny. 66°F with West wind at 12mph.

Great temp for the engines but a little windy for the aero. Excellent day for the crowds although I may have to wear a light jacket out there on my yacht. I'll make the girls wear a bikini anyway. biggrin.gif

They just had Alex Zanardi in the booth and interviewed him. Cool stuff. Comparing todays cars to the cars he drove and the chances of him driving the 500 again.
Theyve been talking to Parnelli Jones quite a bit too.
Theres enough cars on track at once that its almost like watching the race. Not quite...

If I may be allowed a postscript to my post about the Moore storm, I saw in the Oklahoman this morning that just about everybody in the OKC Thunder organization turned out for a trip to Moore to offer support for the victims. Sam Presti, the Thunder GM,, moved here four years ago from Seattle, when the Sonics franchise was sold to the Clay Bennet group and moved to OKC. He explained why he and most of the Thunder organization were in Moore in a way that impressed me: "I'm an Oklahoman. This is where I live and this is what we do." Russell Westbrook came, crutches and all. Kevin Durant was there too and donated $1 million to tornado relief. They get it. As I said in yesterday's post, folks around here persevere. Always have, always will.

That's almost unfair. Monaco is probably the most elegantly beautiful place on the planet and now you tell us that the weather is perfect, too.smile.gif

On another note, I have decided to watch at least some of the Indy 500 on Sunday. The race is only a pale imitation of what it once was but it's still the Indy 500.

I watch IndyCar like I watch NASCAR. I tune in for just the last couple laps. That's all I need to see. tongue.gif
