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 2014!). 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).

Xmas in September

Thanks to Murray Jones of the Langley Speedway Historical Society for giving me some old racing paper at the Greater Vancouver Motorsport Pioneers Society ceremony on September 20th. Scanning stuff to beat the band.

The ceremony went well.

Three pages from the 1976 Western Speedway program.
