Back in September, I got to take a tour of the Ohio State University Center for Automotive Research. There is a lot of great research going on there, as described in an article in this morning’s Dispatch:

Student Drivers

I went to school with Don Butler, who is quoted in the article.

The Kentucky basketball team under new coach Billy Gillispie got off to a bit of a shaky start, losing to Gardner-Webb in Lexington. They will also get a crack at North Carolina in an afternoon game on Saturday, December 1.

The UK football team lost four of its last five, including a heartbreaker to Tennessee yesterday 52-50 in four overtimes. Kentucky has not beaten Tennessee since 1984. But with a 7-5 overall record, the Cats should be inline for a bowl game for the second season in a row.

After my last post about the Blue Jackets on October 23, Columbus ran off 4 straight wins, followed by an OTL then another win. A bit of a slump followed after that, but the Jackets won two games this weekend against Minnesota and Detroit.

Pascal Leclaire has been brilliant, recording six shutouts already this season.

The Jackets now head out for a three-game western road trip. Stealing a few points out there would be awesome.

Ohio State won the Big Ten football championship, and notched yet another win over arch-rival Michigan, 14-3 this year. The Saturday before the big game, both Ohio State and Michigan lost. The Illini came to Columbus and came away victorious 28-21, the only loss of the season for the Bucks.

OSU has an excellent chance of pulling back into the BCS Championship race. Missouri and West Virginia both have one more game to play. If one falters, OSU could easily move up.

The young OSU men’s basketball team is off to a decent start. After losing an exhibition game to division 2 member Findlay, the Bucks made it to the championship game of the pre-season NIT, before losing to Texas A&M.

On Wednesday, the Bucks take on North Carolina (ranked number one in some polls). It will be interesting to see if OSU can give them a game.

Well, it is time to get up-to-date, and I am going to do that right now!

License plates available for sale or trade

November 15, 2007

These are plates I have available. I have tried to describe the condition to some extent. I don’t currently have pictures of any of them, but can take some and send them on request.

Contact me at to request pictures or make offers on one or more plates. There are some pairs, be sure to let me know if you are interested in pairs. I will figure out shipping once we’ve agreed on plates being sold. I prefer PayPal, but will entertain other forms of payment if necessary.

I am happy to consider a trade for amateur radio plates. I am also interested in plates of current or former broadcast radio station call letters.

I am quite busy and it may take me awhile to get back to you.

Well, obviously I am way behind again in updating this blog. The bad news is that November has been a crazy-busy month for me, and it hasn’t slowed down yet. The good news is that I am getting a lot of stuff done. I will try to get up-to-date just as soon as time permits.
