1995 Volvo 5 speed wagon has been dying intermittently for no apparent reason.  After 20 years, the solder joints on the Fuel Pump Relay have degraded to the point of arcing. I had a few that were very bad and a few others that were questionable so I re-did them all. Re-fluxing and re-soldering the relay board is a simple fix and saves 40-70.00. This fix should easily go another 20 years+ since it was soldered very well, this time.
Time:  30 minutes total.

America’s Nuclear Navy is one of the oldest and largest nuclear organizations in the world and has the best safety record of any industry.

And no one ever discusses it.
America’s Nuclear Navy is one of the oldest and largest nuclear organizations in the world, and has the best safety record of any industry. There are over a hundred nuclear reactors that power 86 submarines and aircraft carriers. Thousands upon thousands of people have lived, worked, eaten and slept within a stone’s throw of a nuclear reactor for 60 years with no adverse effects at all.

Boothbay Harbor Sunrise
Burnt Island, Maine

Sunrise colors fill the sky as day begins over Boothbay Harbor, Maine.

Photography Tip: Find a strong colorful foreground. Gorgeous skies are great but you need something of interest along the bottom edge of the frame to balance out the composition. This is especially true when shooting landscapes with wide-angle lenses.

When processing your landscape images make sure that your dominant foreground elements "pop." Emphasize textures, sharpness, contrast, and saturation the most where you want the viewer's eye to go.

This is one of the locations that we will visit this September during my Coastal Maine Photography Workshop at the historic +Spruce Point Inn Resort & Spa. This workshop is centered around the sea and its endless photographic possibilities.  

We will float from island to island in our own private motorboat each day while photographing beautiful harbors, remote lighthouses, and working lobster boats.  This is a terrific opportunity to learn new landscape and travel photography techniques while enjoying the cuisine and hospitality of Maine’s finest resort.

Title should read 'US automakers'
Buy it...Drive it.
Apparently, this includes upgrades on newer vehicles which can only be done by the dealer or an authorized shop.
Looks like a great spot for a #volvo  tag.
 
Automakers to gearheads: Stop repairing cars

Car Companies Say Home Repairs Are 'Legally Problematic,' Seek Copyright Restrictions
I really never would have believed this would happen but... Every industry has just enough lobbyists and and armful of attorneys to buy off politicians and find loopholes in the law to screw the public over. This country has been systematically destroyed in the last few decades. Over-regulated, anti-competitive and overbearing are all good words to used in describing the merger of corporation and state. The largest corporations absorb the costs (...

The drop in lawsuits alone would pay for it. The city doesn't have a problem burdening taxpayers with debt any other time, why start being fiscally responsible now? At least put it on a ballot and let the voters decide if they want to pay for it.

Burning Ripples

Bilgola Beach, Sydney’s Northern Beaches, NSW, Australia
NIKON D750 + 16.0-35.0 mm f/4.0 @ 20 mm, 2.5 sec at f/13, ISO 100

Sneaky Sunday with +Gerard Blacklock and +Debbie Mooney

Shooting in spots like this you need to be quite careful how you adjust your polariser (if you're using one). Rotating the polariser to adjust the level of polarisation across the frame can make significant differences to the shot. Here I was making changes for different shots to adjust the level of reflection off the surface of the water and if and where I'd be able to see through the water surface to what lies below. You don't get absolute control over exactly where this might occur (e.g. see through at this spot and be reflective elsewhere) but you do get some broad control.

The sky was changing rapidly.

I'd moved to a new spot and rotated my positioning so the sun would be further to the left of frame. Mimicking the diagonal structure of the clouds in the sky I've setup some foreground and midground elements to leave me with a diagonal composition from the bottom right up and back across the frame.

It was hard to find something suitable to put in the bottom right of my frame. I usually like something a bit bolder to include right up front but the colour was shifting rapidly and I didn't have time. The best I had was this little clump of sea plant. It was getting submerged by each wave so I had to time a shot to coincide with when the water was receding and the plant was exposed above water.

First time. Great food /service. Prices are a bit high for a buffet (expect to pay around 35.00+ for 2 if you have anything but water to drink) They know their beef! We WILL return but not too soon.

Handy location. Deceptive food labeling and ingredients. Overpriced fries. I guess that would be 'average' for McD's

Skip this one. One of THE worst non-corporate KFC's on the globe. I have given them 3 tries over 2 years. Never again. Of course, this sheds some bad light on the A&W in the same location.. so it goes.
