Shooting models today at the photographic course.



Jeesh -- what a great gig!  thumbsup2

With my luck taking a course such as this I'd wind up with a model name "Vinny" from New Jersey with lots of back hair.  :))

I have given up the idea of restoring the radio in my 1956 Mercury, no AM stations worth listening to anymore.

Seriously, around here the only two I can tolerate are AM! can't stand what FM offers regardless the station, even the oldies stations; they all only play about 15-20 songs per station and only those 15-20 day after day, week after week. I can't handle that. I all but gave up on music stations for that very reason years ago. Usually all I listen too anymore is talk radio due to the lack of variety music stations play. No talk radio on FM, only AM.

Changed out my leaking rusty oil pan.

Now with Sam, while Mandy is on a girls night out.

Yeah, most modern literature bites! Whenever I come across an old reference book, service manual, or repair guide I grab it. Got one from the 1940's - damn if guys didn't have to know how to do stuff back then!

I've put together a file that I've entitled "Handyman Tips and Home Remedies". Wife encouraged me some years ago, as she said if something happened to me she wouldn't know how to do all the little things I do around the house because I just kept them in my head. She said you outta write that stuff down. I said OK, figuring it would be about 2 or 3 pages. It's 122 pages long at the moment! :eek:

FYI, if you want a fascinating reference book on chemicals and old time processes, Henley's Formulas is worth the admission price just for entertainment.

That's pretty cool -- and a great find Nick. I recall that back in the 60's the Lafayette chain of electronics stores sold many DIY troubleshooting guides that are similar to yours.
