Well yesterday the Dow Jones industrial average plunged 777 points, its biggest ever single-day drop, or nearly 7 percent, to 10,365.45, its lowest close in nearly three years. The setback occurred after lawmakers failed to pass a $700 billion bank rescue plan aimed at stabilizing the U.S. financial system. Also yesterday my bank Wachovia was taken over by Citigroup. Hopefully the market will stabilize soon. Well they played 162 games and that wasn't enough for the Twins and the White Sox and they will play 1 more game today with the winner advancing to the AL playoffs to meet the Tampa Bay Rays. My Pain index is up this morning because my left side of my torso is hurting this morning and my allergies have been acting up for several days. I haven't really felt that great since Thursday. I also have to go to work 30 minutes earlier this morning as well which also contributing my Pain index. Don't forget this Friday night it will be Homecoming for the Colonials. MICKEY

Refurbishing Plastic Spatulas
Over time, the edges of plastic spatulas get dull and rough. Sharpen the rough edge by sanding them with an emery board or scraping them with the edge of a sharp knife. You can also do this to wooden spatulas.

Stopping a Side Stitch
To stop a side stitch when running, stop running and place your hand into the right side of your belly and push up, lifting the liver slightly. Inhale and exhale evenly as you push up.

The Washington Redskins stunned the Dallas Cowboys in Dallas yesterday 26-24 and with the win knocked Dallas out of the ranks of the unbeaten in the NFL. It doesn't get any easier for the Redskins next week as the Skins will travel the Philadelphia to play the Eagles. The Green Bay Packers fell to Tampa Bay yesterday 30-21 and the Packer offense struggled most of the day and Aaron Rogers injured his shoulder in the 4th quarter as well. Hopefully he isn't injured to bad because the Packers have two rookies backing him up. Also yesterday former Packer Brett Favre threw 6 TD passes in the Jets win over Arizona. Jimmie Johnson won yesterday Sprint Cup race at the Kansas Speedway and with the win Johnson also leads the point standings as well, he leads Carl Edwards by 10 points and Greg Biffle by 30 points. I think the only pro or college team that I have a rooting interest in that won this weekend was the Washington Redskins. It looks like the weather is going to be pretty good this week with highs in the low 80's today and tomorrow and highs 70's the rest of the week. My PAIN index remains over 6 this morning just because I didn't have that great of a weekend. MICKEY

It sure wasn't a good day for the college football teams that I root for yesterday. First off if Virginia could get any lower I don't know how, they lost to a team that hadn't won a game in the ACC since 2004 and they loss 31-3 no less. This game was actually tied at 3-3 at halftime and UVA gave up 28 unanswered points in the 2nd half to Duke and the UVA offense may be the worst in country, I don't see them winning another game this year. They just look like a team that is playing with no heart in my opinion. I went to the East Carolina game yesterday and the Pirate defense gives up 621 yards total offense to Houston and the Pirates lose 41-24 and I have to tell you this game was totally dominated by Houston. The ECU play calling yesterday left a lot to be desired thats for sure and the Pirate faithful sure were letting the coaches no there opinion about it. The ECU offense sure didn't to the ECU defense any favors either, the defense was on the field way to much yesterday. Then I figure that Georgia will beat Alabama for sure last night and we turn the XM radio on and at the half Georgia is losing 31-0 to Alabama in Athens no less. The Bulldogs tried to make a 2nd half comeback but came up short in falling to Alabama 41-30. Then to top it all off Virginia Tech beats Nebraska 35-30 to end my day, it also was a very tough day for Clemson, Wake Forest and Florida. Today in the NFL the Green Bay Packers will be in Tampa to face the Buccaneers and the Redskins will will be in Dallas to face the undefeated Dallas Cowboys. In a high school football game of note yesterday Petersburg improved to 4-0 with a 42-7 win over Hopewell. The Nascar Sprint Cup Series will be at the Kansas Speedway this afternoon for race 3 in the chase, Denny Hamlin won yesterdays Nationwide Race. Just in case anybody wants to know my PAIN index is up this morning just because of what my college football teams did yesterday. The Mickey's Place college football pick em contest will be updated soon. MICKEY

The Crawford County Eagles picked up there 2nd win on of the season last night beating Spencer 14-6 and with the win the Eagles are now 2-3 on the season and will play at Macon County next Friday and I am predicting another win next week. The CH Colonials fell to Prince George last night 26-7 on Prince Georges Homecoming, the Colonials are now 2-2 and will face a very potent Dinwiddie offense at home next week where it will Homecoming for the Colonials. Down at the beach First Flight improved to 5-0 on the season with a 34-0 over Cape Hatteras, next week the Nighthawks will be at Northeastern. I will be heading down to see the East Carolina Pirates face the Houston Cougars today, hopefully the Pirates can rebound from last weeks loss and N.C. Sate. The Virginia Cavaliers will be at Duke this afternoon to face the Blue Devils and believe it or not Duke is favored by 7 points, it has been years since they won an ACC game. The Georgia Bulldogs have a very big game in the SEC today when the Alabama Crimson Tide come to Athens, I can't believe Scott picked Alabama to win this game. Juan Pablo Montoya thought he captured the pole for this weekends race at the Kansas Speedway but his #42 failed inspection because of a shock issue and now will start at the rear of the field and Jimmie Johnson will now start from the top spot. There is still a bit of drizzle falling this morning here in the Heights, I don't know about everybody else but I am tired of all the rain we have had the last few weeks. I did make it down to the Wal-Mart this morning and I got some chocolate donuts instead of glaze for a change. MICKEY


I have been up against tough competition all my life. I wouldn't know how to get along without it. WALT DISNEY

Any 1 of a 1000 viruses can cause the common cold.

Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.

Nintendo was founded in 1899 to make playing cards.

Give yourself the power
Your power depends on your perspective. And your perspective is yours to choose.

If you convince yourself that you're having a bad day, you will indeed experience a frustrating and unproductive day. If you assume that circumstances are allied against you, then you'll encounter great trouble in getting anything done.

There is a much more powerful alternative. You can choose to adopt and embrace a perspective that will work for you rather than against you.

Think of how you would feel if conditions were perfect, if your actions were highly effective and if everything was going exactly your way. Then, once you imagine how it would feel, go ahead and allow yourself to actually feel that way.

How would you act today if you knew you were going to be completely successful? Go ahead and act that way, and the success will come.

Put yourself in a position of power by choosing to feel the positive influence and effectiveness that you know is yours. Adopt the thoughts, feelings and actions of success, and you will indeed bring success to life.

The Oregon State Beavers stunned the #1 team in the country the USC Trojans last night 27-21 in a game that the Beavers never trailed in. Oregon State built a 21-0 halftime lead and held on for a 27-21 victory which opens the door for Georgia to return to the #1 spot in the country with a win over Alabama on Saturday. I have to say it's not looking to good for high school football tonight in the Central Virginia area, we had some very heavy rains last night for about 4 hours and it's some light rain falling this morning as well. I am sure there will be a couple of games that will go on but I think the majority of them will be postponed. Colonial Heights is suppose to be at Prince George and it is PG homecoming as well, while down in Georgia Crawford County will be at home against Spencer. I have posted all the high school games of interest below. The Nascar Sprint Cup Series will be at the Kansas Speedway this weekend for race 3 in the chase. My Pain index is up this morning just because it is raining but the good news is that is Friday. MICKEY

Well today is fellow blogger Melanie's birthday and can you believe that she is the big 50 today, I didn't want to post that it was her 50th birthday but several unnamed members of the blog said that I should so I did. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MELANIE. Well the State Fair of Virginia starts today at RIR Complex and right on cue it's going to rain, it seem every time the fair starts it always rains. Well I did go up and see the Colonial Heights JV football game last night and they did play better last night but still came out on the short end against Prince George. I am going to our 15 under fall ball baseball game tonight at Dinwiddie weather permitting, it's not looking to good for tonights game. There is a 100% chance of rain here today in Colonial Heights with winds 20-30 mph. I have posted a few more photos from yesterday in Kitty Hawk, as you can tell there has already been some pretty sever beach erosion. Mom & Dad had better keep there hats on down at the beach or they might lose them. MICKEY

Enthusiasm is the electricity of life. How do you get it? You act enthusiastic until you make it a habit.

What is Sinusitis?
Sinus infections, also called sinusitis, are defined as inflammation of one or more sinuses. Sinuses are hollow cavities within the bones of the face. The sinuses are lined by mucous membranes that normally produce fluid – this fluid usually drains into the nasal passages and is swallowed throughout the day. However, when the drainage sites for the sinuses are blocked, the sinuses cannot drain, and an infection may develop.

The actual infection of the sinuses is most frequently caused by a viral infection (such as the common cold), but can also be bacterial in nature (and therefore responds to antibiotics). Some sinus infections are due to fungus and mold in the sinuses.

It has come over the road in several places and tomorrow is suppose to be worse. The end of the video was a mistake because I was getting beach suds all over me. There is a lot of suds flying around.
