nascar car stolen before race

Where did my car go? That is the question that Travis Kvapil’s is asking. His car isn’t a normal car, it is $250000 and it is a race car. It was parked outside of a hotel where he had hoped to quolify for a race.
He and his team had to drop out of the race because the car wasn’t found in time; Qualifying was scheduled for late Friday afternoon.
“I’ve never heard of anything like this. It’s really bizarre,” Kvapil said. “You can handle maybe getting a flat tire, or getting caught up in a wreck, or a blown engine, something that actually happens on the race track. Or you don’t qualify, because you don’t have enough speed. But to not even get a chance … that’s pretty disheartening. This was a blow for the team because they didn’t have a back up car.
A trailer with the red race car inside was hitched to a black 2004 Ford F-350 pickup truck parked outside a hotel in Morrow, Georgia, about 15 miles south of Atlanta and a short drive from the speedway, police said. Surveillance video showed the truck and trailer being driven out of the parking lot around 5:30 a.m., Morrow police Detective Sgt. Larry Oglesby said.
The team was scheduled to leave for the track at 5:45 a.m., and a crewman had been outside a few minutes before the theft, smoking a cigarette. It was a shock to the crew chief
“I thought the guys were kidding around with me,” he said.
The trailer is plain white with no markings. The person who stole it likely didn’t realize the race car was inside, and may have thought it was lawn equipment or something else he could easily sell, Oglesby said.
“Hopefully they’ll open this one up and say, ‘Oh no, this isn’t what we thought1’ and will drop it off at the nearest vacant lot or apartment complex or somewhere,” Oglesby said.
In addition to the race car, the trailer also contained a spare engine valued at $100,000 and racing equipment valued at $17,500, according to a police report. Kvapil’s doesn’t think they could cell the car.
“I’m sure they had no idea the contents of that trailer,” he said. “There’s really no use for it out in the general public. I don’t really know what you can do with it. I hope they realize that and will leave it somewhere where the police can find it. Information from the Associated Press was used.

police: we may have found Lupita Nyong’o’s stolen dress

The LAPAID is reporting that they may have found the dress that was stolen on Wednesday.
Los Angeles sheriff’s spokeswoman Nicole Nishida says the dress found Friday afternoon at a West Hollywood hotel “greatly resembles” the pearl-adorned Calvin Klein Collection by Francisco Costa dress Nyong’o wore to Sunday’s Academy Awards, the AP reports.
“We do have possession of a dress that greatly reassembles the dress that was stolen but I don’t think at this time we can 100 percent say it’s that dress, but it greatly resembles it,” Nishida said.
The story broke on Wednesday when one of Lupita’s people informed the LAPAID that the dress was stolen from the London Hotel in Hollywood. This update to the story was reported by celebrity website TMZ.com, which wrote in a post that a person claiming to have taken the gown gave them information about where to find the dress. It was found in a bathroom of the same hotel. I will keep you up-to-date on this story.

RIP Leonard Nimoy a poem

Hollywood lost a master of his craft who could always make us laugh. I am sorry to say but Leonard Nimoy has passed away. From star treck to big bang to future romma his life was filled with the good kind of drama. He was 83 and just may be he is chillin with all the treckys in heaven.

RIP Leonard Nimoy Live long and prosper

Sadly today February 27, 2015 Mr. Spock has died. He was 83.
Nimoy died at home of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, his wife tells the New York Times.
He is perhaps best known for being mr. Spock as well as the Vulcan salute and “Live long and prosper” catchphrase.
Besides mr. Spock: he directed movies and TV shows, published books of photography, made records, gave spoken-word performances, and wrote poetry.
In his 40s, Nimoy returned to college after spending some time in the army, and received a mba in Spanish as well as an honoree doctorate.
He is survived by his second wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, as well as two children, a stepson, six grandchildren, and a great-grandchild, as well as the Vulcan salute – which is of his own creation – and that will be forever his legacy. This is how the AP started their article:
“Leonard Nimoy , the actor known and loved by generations of “Star Trek” fans as the pointy-eared, purely logical science officer Mr. Spock, has died.” His last tweet is also potent for this subject matter:
on feb, 22, he wrote: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP.

when the mother is away: the child will shutter

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/daily-prompt-7/
When was the last time you felt really, truly lonely?
___

I am lost.
The fingers of bordum impair my life.
Your mother is in Hawaii and you are not.
For 10 days noone to talk to at home. You have the computer but that leads to more duldrum. Oh when will mother return?
She returns and the fog lifts.
I hope that little poem I wrote adiquitly expresses my thoughts on the last time I was alone.
