photo size issues

Maybe it's just me (although I've heard this from others) the images aren't as big as I would like. Especially if you're trying to read them. Two workarounds. Don't click right on the image. Click to the side of it. Seems to give you the option of enlarging the image if it has that little "plus" inside a circle. Or right click and open the image in another tab. Then you can again click it larger if the image has that little "plus". Hope that helps.

green flag

(Scroll down to find new entries.... Or click on the labels on the left.) I've dated this for the end of 2008 (now I've moved it up to the end of 2016!). Go here to find out what it is I'm trying to accomplish. My "mission statement". And remember to click on the thumbnails. They get bigger and readable (even for my eyesight).

Saturday, June 24, 1978, Langley Speedway

Some confusion with the ads. And a revelation -- there was another sports car race at Langley. I thought the one from the early 70s was the only one.

This one isn't correct.

This one is.

Saturday video. Archival motorcycle footage

Some pretty cool racing footage from Grouse Mountain (I think), Bellingham, Burnaby (a "race around the houses") and Abbotsford.
