Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, not Dallas; WRTV-TV makes DVD of weather special available; Star-gazers wanted for Fuji rooms; 25,000 evacuated from Indonesian volcano zone; Flood, landslide victims await compensation; Webcam help: rescued by voyeurs you’ve never met; Students testing pieces of Columbia: today’s space-age materials may make next-generation space vehicle safer; Senate confirms Griffin to head NASA; Moon and the Pleiades

Where We Are: It’s probably no secret to regular visitors here that I live and work in Fort Worth, not Dallas … or Far, Far West Dallas. I’m a few miles south of the Texas Motor Speedway, which is — and always has been — located in Fort Worth. [By the way, the WXnation Webcam 2 is pointed to the north, should you want to check the weather conditions over the TMS, which is gearing up for Saturday’s O’Reilly 300 Busch Series race].

Oh, one more thing, O’Reilly Auto Parts now definitely knows where Fort Worth is thanks to a shirt that placed the Texas Motor Speedway in “Dallas, Texas”. Story

Good Kind Of Free: WRTV-TV in Indianapolis makes DVD of weather special available free of charge to schools and community groups. Now, this is what I call useful free stuff (as I throw away another AOL trial CD…)
