For years we had a photo on the wall in the back of the office that was shot years ago with a camera that shot a 9x18 inch negative. It was designed to do highway work and had a long focal length lens.

The pilot had flown over a nude beach and most of the people on the beach were waving at the airplane. I have never been to a nude beach, but I suspect it is not full of hot women models, but a bunch of people I never want to see naked. It was that way in the photo.

See, you have more experience with nude beach voyeurism/photography that I do.

Never in real life even seen a sign that said Nude Beach with the arrow on it.

Have gone skinny dipping. Was not classified as 'Nude Beach" or nude anything for that matter.

That image was shot back in California the 1960s sometime. The owner of the company at the time said it was shot by a friend of his in the mapping business and it was shot for some nudist magazine.
That camera system went out of use long ago. We had one still out at the old hangar, or the former owners had it. They owned a whole lot of old junk camera systems. They were all really cool pieces of old technology and I suspect he threw them all in a dumpster. I have no idea.

Glen, there are no restrictions on how far you can fly VFR, as long as it is done VFR, day or night. Recreational and Sport pilots have more restrictions but a regular PP can fly coast to coast as long as they don't fly into restricted airspace or into IFR conditions.

So you would have to be part 135 to operate the camera?

The pictures are Vintage, not the subjects, sorry. The girls in the pictures may be older ladies now, but were young women when the pictures were taken. Visual time travel.

Did advanced sharepoint training yesterday. It looks like it works really cool until you figure out to actually do the things you need to do requires 3rd party software/consultants. Did show us that there are several very large companies that their entire web sites are sharepoint, GMC being one of them.

Applescript is a LOT more powerful and easier to set things up with though. And applescript has libraries of applescript commands in almost every apple program. Have a video made in the 90s somewhere showing a business workflow setup with Applescript using a Fllemaker database that automatically generated and tracked everything thru the business. It had features back then that were touted yesterday as new and cool.

Good Saturday Morning. To spite the rainy morning.

Am assuming this rain is close enough to the 4th of July people will be setting of fireworks with wild abandon. Pop, crack, zip, pow, ooo, aaaah.

Hopefully my nephew and his boys will get their display sequencer setup correctly this year so there won't be any long waits, or miss-fires.

Dang it. Had to take Pepper to the vet. She was shaking her head and scratching at her ears and they stinked like ear wax. Warshed them out with some dog ear wash stuff. It didn't seam to phase the itchy shakin scratchin though. The emergency vet recommended a 24/7 vet that claims they don't charge for 24/7 service. They were on the other side of town.

If Pepper hadn't been shakin her head and scratchin so much would have waited for her regular vet Monday. That 24/7 place took f o r e v e r. What would have taken her regular vet 15 minutes took them 4 hours! These guys gave me ear drops for her, shaved under her ears (only kinda) but didn't even try to clean em, gave me some spray stuff for the shaved parts, and 2 different pills, a steroid and an antibiotic. And it costed twice what her regular vet charges for the shaken scrathing at her ears thing.

They also wanted to run more tests to tell exactly what it was that would have doubled the price again. Asked if the treatment would be any different, they said no. So opted out of the extra tests. No telling how much longer THAT would have takenQ

Her regular vet usually just gives her a shot to stop the itching and help stop the infection. Tells me if that didn't stop it after a week bring her back. It usually clears it right up for 6 months or more.

Guess you never know how good you have it. Been going to Pepper's regular vet since my first Golden Penny 17 yrs, then Camber 13 yrs, and now Pepper 3 yrs. Thats 33 years total. When I first started going he had a 911Targa. Got married and sold it when they started having kids. Remarked he had plenty of mony until they started having kids. Now that his boys have graduated college and are on their own he got a Boxster.

The worst part is the 2 pills I gotta give her twice a day. It is a battle. Nothing ever seems easy.

I spent yet another afternoon in the garage working on the Z. I'm pretty much done with cleaning up the surface rust under the dash and I'm going to finish applying sound deadening mat tomorrow or Tuesday, and then install the new firewall insulation pad. I feel like I'm starting the slow process to put back together the interior of my car. Heck, maybe, I'll get to drive the Z one of these days...nahhhh, no such luck!

Holey Cat Buckets. Besidedss the front HVAC fan being dead, $700 P&L, the Compressor is burnt up. $2300 P&L. Holey Freakin Cat Buckets!

Also not very happy with the 928. This thng hunts coming down to idle and most times stalls. Great, pull up to a stop sign or light and it hunts then stalls. It is NOT tuned worth a crap, I don't care how many miles since the rebuild. Also put a new hatch latch in becuase the switch did not open it and it had the plastic parts are too old a brittle. The switch opens it now, BUT NOT WITH THE KEY? Didn't they even try it? And after the rebuild the shifter is so misaligned it has broken the tabs that hold the shift boot. Arrrrgh.

My world is crumbling around me.

Good rainy morning. Three days of rain. I normally mow on weekends but we have have over 3 inches of rain in the last few days. Over 7.5 for the month. That is great, but why all at once?

I will have to bail the hay by the time it dries out.

That sucks about your AC Richard. Most HIVAC systems need a total upgrade to the new standard stuff. Be glad your AC guy can still get the old stuff. It really sounds like a racket when they tell you the outside condenser and the evaporator in the garage has to be all ripped out and all new heater and AC system installed. Usually 10 to 15 grand depending on the house.

The A/C on the Cayenne is what went out and is going to cost $3000. Totally replaced the HVAC in my house several years ago for only $2500! But my HVAC guy gave me a huge break because he replaced it over a Memorial weekend. And because it was in the low 70's all weekend I was okay with him going to the lake mid install, ie., nothing in the HVAC closet. Did some searching and the cheapest I found the unit he put in was $500 more than he charged for the total install.

Ordered a set of tires for the Cayenne this morning from Tirerack, $1007. And that's just for all season tires! And they are well below the wear bars.

Probably happening to me because I told Bob he shouldn't be driving his Honda Oddity with the transmission shifting funning or he would have to replace it instead of just a oil and filter change. He said the Honda tech said it would be fine. I told him to be careful of that Honda tech because he makes more money replacing the transmission.
