Eric said "See ya" as he jumped out of the jeep. He stood there for a
moment, among the dazzling lights from various tiny shops (the average
convenience store in Udaipur is about the size of a non walk-in
closet), tiny temples, and passing motorcycles. He stood there like a
static part of a photograph, just one of the millions of people out in
India at 8pm, and then blended away as we continued on.

He was one of the volunteers at the Animal Aid Society, a pretty
amiable fellow from Australia. He had done previous work at a
chimpanzee sanctuary in Uganda, and had been at the shelter in Udaipur
before. He mostly worked with cattle and donkeys, and introduced me
to these larger livestock. He was one of the members of our group who
took a trip out to a gorgeous temple to participate in Manas singing.

We usually left the hospital around noon to get lunch, take showers,
and have a day to explore the city. This day, though, Erika (director
of the society) invited us to the temple. She said it would be fun,
singing and clapping, we'd sip some bhang and relax. She said the
bhang (weak marijuana beverage) was mild and her daughter (Clair, 17)
really loved it. We went along.

The temple was one of the most beautiful places we have been. We sat
on a marble patio-like structure, although it had a roof. It was all
men except for Erika, Claire, and Xep. The men looked like they came
from all over; some in western clothing, some in turbans, some had
cowls covering their heads. Some were teens, some were very elderly.
Almost all of them had the glazed eyes of stoners and most of them
were playing finger cymbals, drums, rattles, or just clapping along
with the chants. There was next to this area a tiny ghat, or steps
leading into a small lake for ritual bathing. Across the lake were
brilliant green hills spotted with stone shelters, similar to
dome-topped pagodas. It looked right out of the Hindu paintings you
see of Shiva with neon landscapes in the background.

Before arriving, we stopped in the nearest town and had some water and
then were offered the bhang. The temple also provides it, but as half
of our group was vegan, we wanted a milk-free version. It was made in
a delicious solution of lemon, mint, and spices. Claire quickly drank
a cup and a half while Erika, Eric, and I had a cup each. Xep
abstained this time.

The effects did seem pretty mild although it made the music more
hypnotic and fun. It was hard to follow the chanting in another
language, but the drumbeat and cymbals were very intuitive. It was
essentially an elaborate (and much more polished) version of drum
circles you'd find on college campuses. Anyone free to come and go as
they please, pick up or put down instruments. Follow the group but no
real regulations on how to play. There was a core "band" of tabla,
harmonium, and one main cymbalist. Every once in a while someone
would get up and dance in the middle of the circle, and sometimes
someone would sing solo. It was quite beautiful.

After a while we left, and on the way back had to stop as Erika was
feeling very carsick. Indian driving is indeed CRAZY and this was on
one of the worst roads we had been on: A winding mountain "highway"
through very steep passes. To make it worse, it was in marble
country, so the road was speckled with enormous dumptrucks going about
5mph, full of marble. The Indian style of passing cannot even be
explained. Basically, there are no lanes and it is extremely
suicidal. Horns are blared to indicate intent, and then drivers just
go where they want. They don't use headlights until well after dark.
Its truly terrifying and I feel like I have an above-average tolerance
for this kind of thing. I had to alternate between paying strict
attention to the current odds of death through the front windshield
(generally ranging between 60 and 99%) and looking at the floor to get
a brief break from the adrenaline.

And so we stopped for a few minutes as Erika had to lay down. The
driver and her guru-escort friend debated what to do. I talked to
Eric and Claire about parents acting weirdly. Eric's dad was known to
get so drunk that he swang from rafters, once knocking himself out.
Claire's mom was laying in a Jeep in India, stoned on bhang and
groaning. I didn't really have anything to add other than "wow" to
Eric's stories. I was pretty high myself.

It got darker and the driving became more and more sketchy as we got
closer to town. Xep tried to talk to me, asking me what was on my
mind, and I was really feeling the bhang. Unable to speak. Just
holding on (literally, holding onto the steel frame of the Jeep to
keep from falling out the open back with each bump). I was imagining
the beeline I would make to our bed over and over so that when the
time came I could navigate it without incident.

But first we had to get Erika home. She lives in the village right
near the animal hospital, way up a road tha

Mid-1910s: Dutch Ad for Dunlop Bike Tyres

The war is far away. No rhyme art of the first order. But nice to read.

I have tried to translated the poem, but I do not know the exact English equivalent of many old Dutch words. In Dutch it sounds quite formal and stiff in my 'modern' ears.

A summer shower

Sheltering from the rain
Under foliage,
A cycling couple
Nest at ease.
SHE speaks about the rain,
HE about sunshine
End that soon the cycling path
Will be dry again.

Magnificent that driving
In this summer time
With such a beautiful, fast bike
She says, really happy.
"It worked," he agrees,
"The best pleasure on earth;
And, my darling, that's what you owe
DUNLOP with the beard.

New shoes, and new socks, too! The car still looks pretty darn good for being 10 years old with 183,000 miles on it.

Maybe it sounds foolish to get shiny new aluminum wheels for a car with 183,000 miles on it, but that's what we did.

The Volvo has spent the last 10 years with steel wheels and hubcaps and they were all so bent that the car shook like a mother. I'd have gotten more steelies, but for this car they were more expensive than these 15" "MB Sprite" wheels from Discount Tire.

Day 133




Day 133





Oh man, I'm totally beat. Went to sleep at 1 and woke up @ 5 and worked in Salem photographing kids. It was good to get back into the school photography; being around the children made me happy. They're just so happy overall that it rubbed off, I suppose. I'm working with different equipment and different backdrops and lighting, with different standardized poses, so, it'll take a little getting used to, but I think I'll be up to speed in a few days. I was draggin' ass today, though. The whiskey and nachos I had for dinner last night didn't blend so well with the coffee and emergenC this morning, and around 6, as I drove south on the 5 this morning a 4 ring circus played out in my belly; I grew nauseous and turned my music off for a bit. The rain was torrential at times and visibility was poor, but when the sun rose the sky was of the deepest purples and blues and grays I may have ever seen... it was breathtaking.
I forgot my name badge on my desk at home and was reviewed by a manager, on my first freakin' day back. I wonder if she marked me down. Competition is fierce for hours.. the economy being how it is; people aren't spending much on Spring photography this year. From what I gather, the other photographers are hurtin', and butt-poor... some people have quit because the hours are too low (more hours for the rest of us), and I wouldn't be surprised if there's some nasty attitudes going about, just below the surface. I suppose I should watch my back... it's hard out here bein' a photo-pimp. I wish I were a photo pimp. What would I do if I were one?
I'm so tired. Beth's on her way over. She had a tough day herself. I think we're gonna make mac & cheese, maybe bust out a game of scrabble, or maybe just hit the sack and listen to the rain outside.
One of my room mates, Dave, came home with this daffodil for me today, plucked from the neighborhood somewhere I believe. The mates are on alert for still life subjects... Daffodils, like fresh local asparagus, are harbingers of Spring. I love the Spring.
Oh, today is Ash Wednesday, too. I'm not catholic, but I dig the rite. I'm kind of into rituals.
Ok, cheers.
Carry on.
As you were.
That is all.

Dear Mr. Goodyear:
I am disappointed in your tires. What you see here is a tire with only 200,000 carefully driven miles on it. I can asure you that I checked the pressure daily and rotated them once a week. I noticed a crack forming at 150,000. At that point I made sure to drive at a maximum speed of 30 mph to protect your reputation. Alas, the tire is now a total loss. I expect that you will honor your warranty and replace the tire - and wheel at no cost to me, your loyal customer.
Sincerely, Hans

If I could bring your attention to the right-side tires of this Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, you will see an incredible amount of pressure being applied due to the speed at which these cars take turn 5a. Tires are mounted with negative camber so to keep traction at a maximum. While it helps the outside tires, it makes the tires on the inside roll out.

Tokyo - Odaiba: Aqua City and Fuji Television Head Office Building





The Fuji Television Head Office Building (?????????), also known as the Fuji TV Building or the Fuji Sankei Group Headquarters, at 2-4-8 Daiba, opened on March 10, 1997 as the headquarters of Fuji Television (?????), one of Japan’s private nationwide TV stations, replacing their old headquarters in Kawadacho, Shinjuku. The 25-floor, 123-meter tall structural expressionist skyscraper was designed in the structural expressionist style by Kenzo Tange of Tange Associates. The innovative design divides the building space into an office tower and a media tower linked by three enclosed pedestrian bridges, which strengthen the structure and make it highly earthquake resistant. Next to the media tower is a spherical observation platform, which weighs a colossal 1,200 tons. With a diameter of 32-meters, it was built on the roof of the 7th floor and then raised to the 25th floor with a hydraulic jack. Ten studios fill the inside of the building. Tickets for a studio tour, which may not be of great interest to non Japanese, are available from the booth at the top of the elevator.

Aqua City Odaiba is a shopping mall featuring various stores, boutiques, restaurants, cafes and a 13-screen cinema complex. The eastern part of the mall is occupied by Sony Mediage. The fifth floor houses a Ramen Stadium, a ramen food theme park where you can try different ramen from all over Japan. A small Shinto Shrine can be found inside.











Fleeing the conflict, Masisi




Fleeing the conflict, Masisi





I joined a joint UN agency mission to Mushaki, about 50km from Goma up a steep road winding through the Masisi hills. The Indian peace keeping troops had contacted the Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs about a group of displaced people who needed help.
As we drove we saw trucks carrying troops and munitions heading towards the hills and coming the other way families fleeing with their few possessions.
We stopped to talk to a father with his child. He came from close to Ngungu. A neighboring village had been attacked and he packed up his family and was making the day long walk to Mugunga a camp where he had heard there was help to be found. A few hundred meters later we met with his wife and their other five children. They were tired and dispirited. After a minute or two the children?s unquenchable curiosity about digital cameras got the better of them. Sometimes I feel that I am most useful making kids giggle by fooling around with a camera.
On the journey back I saw them refreshing themselves at a fountain on the side of the road just sort of Sake, They smiled and waved, I wondered if it was the water or the relative safety of Sake that buoyed their mood.

Oregon state law allows motorists to use studded tires from Nov. 1 through March 31. Because studded tires damage Oregon highways, ODOT encourages drivers to consider using chains or non-studded traction tires.

    oil change
  • replacing dirty oil with clean

  • Motor oil, or engine oil, is an oil used for lubrication of various internal combustion engines. While the main function is to lubricate moving parts, motor oil also cleans, inhibits corrosion, improves sealing, and cools the engine by carrying heat away from moving parts.

  • The following is an episode list for the MTV animated television series Beavis and Butt-head. The series has its roots in 1992 when Mike Judge created two animated shorts - "Frog Baseball" and "Peace, Love & Understanding" - which were later aired on Liquid Television.





    national
  • limited to or in the interests of a particular nation; "national interests"; "isolationism is a strictly national policy"

  • of or relating to or belonging to a nation or country; "national hero"; "national anthem"; "a national landmark"

  • a person who owes allegiance to that nation; "a monarch has a duty to his subjects"

  • Of or relating to a nation; common to or characteristic of a whole nation

  • Owned, controlled, or financially supported by the federal government





    tyres
  • A rubber covering, typically inflated or surrounding an inflated inner tube, placed around a wheel to form a flexible contact with the road

  • (tyre) Sur: a port in southern Lebanon on the Mediterranean Sea; formerly a major Phoenician seaport famous for silks

  • A strengthening band of metal fitted around the rim of a wheel

  • (tyre) tire: hoop that covers a wheel; "automobile tires are usually made of rubber and filled with compressed air"

  • A tire (in American English) or tyre (in British English) is a ring-shaped covering that fits around a wheel rim to protect it and enable better vehicle performance by providing a flexible cushion that absorbs shock while keeping the wheel in close contact with the ground.











12 years




12 years





We bought our Karmann Ghia right about exactly 12 years ago.

Happy anniversary, loyal friend!

In the past 12 years this car has taken us to Chicago and back, following old Rt. 66 haunts. In the Windy City it cruised Lake Shore Drive. It's been to Mexico, California, Nevada, Utah, many many times... and all over every nook and crannie of Arizona.
It's had its fussy moments, flat tires, slipping clutch, electrical problems, occasional nervousness, carburetor chaos...but overall it has been steadfast, true, starting right up and taking me wherever I want to go, firing on all 4, smooth as silk.

My local VW friends can never figure out what the secret to its longevity is. I say it's all about the motor oil: the straight weight oil (40 in summer, 30 in winter), the additional screw-on oil filter, the deep sump that holds 2 1/2 extra quarts of oil, and the religiously performed oil changes, every 2500 miles without fail.

I joke that while doing engine work I dripped a drop of my blood (from a busted knuckle) into the oil filler tube. I joke, but I am not really joking. I did do that, and me and that car are blood sisters now.

This is a photo from our first Spring with the Ghia, 1998, up on Mingus, Chad jumping into a lingering patch of snow as a lark..

The BMW Z4 is a rear-wheel drive sports car by the German automaker BMW, known as the E85 in roadster form and E86 in coupe form. Production started in 2002, and thus replaced the BMW Z3. The design addresses many criticisms of the Z3; the Z4 is larger, and has a significantly stiffer chassis. It is built in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Initially, the Z4 was available only as a roadster, but in 2006 a coupe version was officially launched.

The Z4 was designed by Chris Bangle and began the controversy over his "flame surfacing" design and aggressive styling choices, which can also be seen on most modern BMW cars, most noticeably the 7 Series and 5 Series. As of 2007, the entire BMW car line, including the BMW 3 Series and X5 SAV, had incorporated Chris Bangle's design theme.

The Z4 features a strut type front suspension like its predecessor, the Z3. The rear suspension, however is considerably different from that of the Z3, which was based on that of the E30 BMW 3 Series. Instead of a semi-trailing arm suspension, the Z4 uses a more advanced multi-link suspension.

It is due to be complemented by a new model, the Z2, in 2009.

Features

The Z4 offered a choice of four straight-six engines: 2.2 L, 2.5 L, 3.0 L, and 3.2 L. All are variants of the BMW M54 engine. In the European market, a 2.0 L straight-4 is also offered. The 2.2 L, 120 kW (170 bhp) version can reach 100 km/h in 7.7 s, but is not sold in the United States.

The 2.5 L engine produces 141 kW (192 bhp) at 6000 rpm. BMW claims a 6.8 s time to 100 km/h (62 mph) with a manual transmission. It weighs 1,335 kg (2,932 lb) with a manual transmission—30 kg (66 lb) lighter than the 3.0 L version, but still heavier than the 2.5 L Z3's weight of 1315 kg (2899 lb).

The 3.0 L, 170 kW (215 bhp) (at 5900 rpm) straight six has a claimed time to 100 km/h (62 mph) of 5.9 s.

The 3.2 L motor produces 246 kW (330 bhp) at 7900 rpm and (262 ft·lbf) of torque at (4900 rpm)[1]

The most powerful car of the Z4 line-up is the Z4 M. It features a naturally aspirated, in-line six cylinder engine, used in the third generation of the BMW M3. It produces 340 bhp at 7900 rpm, and 365 nm (270 lb-ft) of torque. 0-100 km/h takes 5 seconds, and the top speed is limited to 250 km/h.

2003 BMW Z4 roadster

Five-speed manual gearboxes are standard on all models except the 3.0 L and the M Roadster, which has a 6-speed Getrag. 5-speed or 6-speed automatic are available on all non M cars. The M Roadster shares its 6-speed Getrag 217 manual gearbox with the M3. [2]

A Sport package is also available, which adds stiffer and lower suspension, larger wheels with run-flat tires, and Dynamic Driving control, BMW's Vehicle Stability Control system.

2006-2007 Z4 3.0si

In 2006, BMW updated the Z4 line by installing its new N52 I-6 engines. In the 3.0si, this engine makes 190 kW (255 bhp) and 220 lb·ft (298 N·m) of torque. The N52 features a magnesium block construction, which consists of an aluminum interior for the cylinders, and an outer magnesium block. This produces an engine block that weighs only 50+ pounds. The engine features BMW's Valvetronic variable valve timing system for increased performance, are considerably more powerful through the middle of the rev range, and also improve fuel economy noticeably. A final benefit of the N52 engines is that they improve handling and turn-in due to the decreased weight over the nose of the car. This is particularly noticeable when compared to the Z4 M, which continues with the heavier S54 iron block engine.

In addition to the powertrain updates, BMW made mild revisions to the styling of the Z4, added several electronic features, and increased the brake size on the 3.0si models.











Bostian Bridge circa 1857




Bostian Bridge circa 1857





The passengers were grumpy and heavy-eyed as they boarded the train in Salisbury during the early morning of August 27, 1891. The train was headed to Asheville, and the riders settled into their seats and tried to catch a few more minutes of sleep.


Around three a.m., the passengers were suddenly awakened by suddenly bucking and rocking of the train. The engineer fought for control as the passenger train raced across the stone-and-brick Bostian Bridge near Statesville, but the train suddenly derailed. The chug and whoosh of the rushing train was replaced by the scream of metal and the sounds of the huge train falling, falling down towards the creek bed sixty feet below the bridge. The horrible thunder of the train as it smashed into the stream was quickly replaced by the equally terrible sound of trapped passengers screaming and moaning in agony as the twisted wreckage of the train was encompassed by the waters of the creek. Twenty-two people were killed that night in the worst train wreck in the history of North Carolina.

Fifty years to the day after the wreck, a woman waiting by her stranded car near the Bostian Bridge in the early morning hours of August 27 saw a train come rushing down the track, its head light gleaming brightly in the darkness and the whistle blowing. As it raced across the bridge, it suddenly derailed, screaming its way down and down sixty feet to smash into the creek bed below. The woman was terrified. She ran toward the wrecked train and gazed down into the creek. She could hear the frantic cries and agonized moans of the survivors.

At that moment, a car pulled up beside her stranded vehicle and her husband jumped out, followed by the owner of a local store who had come to help them fix their flat tire. She ran towards them in a frenzy, desperate to get help down to the poor trapped passengers below. When they heard her story, the men ran to the edge and looked down into the creek bed. There was nothing there. The woman had seen the train wreck of Statesville re-enacted before her eyes.

Some people say the phantom train appears each year in the early morning hours of August 27th and is wrecked before the eyes of any who watch for it.

Stone arch bridge over Third Creek on Norfolk Southern RR, 2 miles w. of Statesville, NC along Buffalo Shoals Rd. Built in 1857

The Lumber Industry of Georgia. Part of this house is starting to fall down but most of the long-leaf pine boards are in excellent shape, and will hopefully be recycled into something else. This is a house built of “heart pine” which was collected from the property around 1900. It was constructed without pneumatic nailers or screwguns. Though it been abandoned some 30 years and left to the elements, the wood looks pretty good and like so many other houses built “with quality not quantity” in mind- it’s still standing. I wonder what my house is going to look like in 100 years?
Large scale Industrial Logging in the late nineteenth and twentieth century just about eradicated the long-leaf pine or “yellow pine”- (it goes by many names). Northern industrialists and timber companies flocked to the South to buy thousands upon thousands of acres of virgin timber at little cost from settlers- who really didn’t know what the value of their property was worth- and farmers who were just tired of working the poor sandy/clay soil and wanted to abandon their farms for the “city life” of the booming industrial nation or try their luck in the gold rush. Up until the Industrialists moved in, the land was cleared in small pockets; first by the Native Americans and then by early settlers and mountain farmers. The timber harvested before the civil war in Georgia, was primarily for homesteader consumption and use. The practice of clearing the land using oxen or mules left the soil in a condition to regenerate growth, mass erosion was not a problem and the longleaf pine forest in the South prospered- for the most part- none the worse for wear.
Commercial Timber companies, at this time(pre-civil war), were relegated to the coast and navigable streams, as rail roads centered on already cleared lands to pick up and transport crops. The industrial loggers of the 1870's brought in heavy equipment, portable saws and began clear cutting entire forest regions which left the soil unsuitable for re-growth. To move the timber to port required some mode of transportation other than mule, so after the civil war the railroads moved in and blasted out hillsides and filled in gullies to gain access to regions previously thought unprofitable. The use of splash dams - temporary dams built to raise the level of water which are then exploded in order to wash a massive quantity of timber downstream - all at once; polluted the streams with sediments and destroyed habitats for many animals. When a region was cleared the timber companies moved on and left the country side exposed to the elements. There was no thought of sustainability- no reseeding – no forestry management practices, and certainly no thought of consequences.
Nature, as always, is resilient. Eventually trees began to grow again but not the longleaf. It has been replaced by the hand of profit, with the loblolly and slash pine which can be planted in dense groupings, grow straight and do not require regular burning.
