Dusting 2

Dusting 2

From time to time a field needs to have lime applied to it to keep the soil fertile. This is the machine used to apply (dust) the field. The driver really only has to steer and reload since the application is computer controled and depends on the "speed over ground" to set the rate of application.

Honey, what about the pig?

Honey, what about the pig?

This is a picture I took back in 1984 while I was living in Cusco, Peru, for one year as an exchange student. I chose not to dust the slides (oops, mistake!) so, well, they’re kind of dusty!

I don’t remember what town this was in, but it was certainly in the province of Cusco… maybe on the way to or from Urubamba. This was a common form of transport in Cusco.

No me acuerdo en qué ciudad estuvimos, pero creo que estabamos de vuelta a Cusco de Urubamba o tal vez de Pisaq.

I love the fact that I used to live in a place where pigs just roamed the town! I didn’t actually live in this place, but I lived it Cusco, which is within an hours drive from wherever this was taken.

11/14/07 I have this picture up as my desktop right now… when I got home tonight after class I turned my computer on and was admiring the pig. It struck me that most people that I know probably didn’t ever live in a place where pigs roamed the streets! While I was looking at this picture, I noticed the landscape and how much it looked like it would have lots of landslides. Then I remembered from my studying for my Geography exam last week that the Andes mountains are volcanic mountains, i.e. that they were formed by volcanic action. Then I thought about how many Earthquakes they have because of being a volcanic place… and THEN I was thinking about El Sen~or de los Temblores (god of earthquakes)… and then, I logged out of flickr and went, uncharacteristically, to CNN and there was a picture with a caption about a 7.7 earthquake in northern Chile. I thought "Wow…" Why? Because I had just been thinking about Our Man of the Earthquakes moments before and there it was in the headline of CNN’s main web page.

Truck, dust, and windmills in the sun

Truck, dust, and windmills in the sun

I heard this truck coming down the road and immediately turn my camera so I could catch the truck and the dust on the road. Had to do some adjusting to the F stop so was only able to get off two shots. This was the better one. Not much traffic on these narrow gravel roads, but coming up here we almost met a bigger truck head on that was traveling at a ridiculous speed for the condition of the road. I pulled over and waited for him to pass. Guess he was anxious to get home, or somewhere.

These are huge compared to the ones in central CA — at Altamont Pass.

From a news article written in July 2001 www.bluefish.org/outjuice.htm

"The blades are mounted on a housing unit the size of a minivan and sit atop a massive tower about 165 feet high. Wind propels the blades, which turn a shaft that drives a generator. The electricity goes to an underground distribution line, where it is carried to the main substation.

The blades need a minimum wind of 7 mph to turn and start generating electricity at 9 mph. A computer shuts down the turbine if the wind reaches 56 mph."

"Each windmill has a footprint of about 40 square feet, which means much of the land remains useful for agriculture and grazing. ‘The cows can go right up and lean against them,’ Brown said."

Eat my dust

Eat my dust

‘Eat my dust’ On Black

I had a major hard disk crash today. I managed to save most of my data, including a massive amount of raw files (phew!). This means working all weekend to get my computer running again, because on this laptop here, it’s no fun to edit the pictures at all…

What do I learn from that?
– Do backups more often
– Keep your important data on a different hard drive than your windows installation
– Think about buying an analog camera 🙂

Online Truck Insurance Quotes

Online Truck Insurance Quotes

All trucks need to be insured and the penalties for failing to do this well outweigh the cost of the insurance policy. Online Truck Insurance Quotes are easy to get and there is no excuse for not getting a policy on time.

Insurance companies accept that people are busy and it can take quite a while to arrange a policy by post and it can be inconvenient to doing it over the phone. With the option to do it online there is no need to worry about office hours. The web is available 24 hours a day so pick the time that is most convenient and fill in the application then.

Online Truck Insurance Quotes run in the same way as all other policies do. There is the need to be totally honest with everything you answer or the policy can become invalid. This will be bad enough at anytime but if it is discovered just after there has been an accident it can lead to serious trouble and also the possibility of a serious bill being raised.

The forms are usually fairly straightforward to fill in, but it will mean that there is the need to put payment details in and this will mean either giving bank account or credit card details. This is something that is done my many people on a daily basis and all reputable insurance companies will have a secure site so there should not be the fear of fraud. If unfortunately there is an accident and there needs to be a claim this can also be done on line.

The Online Truck Insurance Quotes also eliminate the cost of a phone call. This may not seem like an important factor for an individual, but a company with a great number of vehicles can find that a lot of time is spent arranging this. If it takes 15 or 20 minutes to go through the process on the phone if there are 70 or 80 vehicles involved it is a time consuming process.

While filling in the form for the Online Truck Insurance Quotes may not be for everyone as they prefer to use more traditional methods, this is the way forward. It will also be cheaper for the insurers as they do not have to have staff waiting for the phone to ring and as they often offer a free phone service this is another cost that they have to incur.
