I’m a Sucker For Pretty Pictures…

I’m a Sucker For Pretty Pictures…

What can I say, I love “The Big Picture” and post it here fairly often for your viewing pleasure. Here’s a good one, the Dakar Rally … formerly the Paris – Dakar Rally.

“The 31st running of the Dakar Rally is being held in South America for the second year, instead of the traditional African route, due to ongoing security concerns. This year’s race began and will end in Buenos Aires, covering a looping 9,000 kilometers between Argentina and Chile over 14 stages.”

Kazakhstan’s radioactive legacy

Sixty years ago, the Soviet Union detonated its first nuclear weapon, nicknamed “First Lightning”, at a test facility on the steppe of northeast Kazakhstan (formerly the Kazakh SSR). The test site, named the Semipalatinsk Polygon, would go on to host 456 atomic explosions over its 40-year existence. Residents in the surrounding area became unwitting guinea pigs, exposed to the aftereffects of the bombs both intentionally and unintentionally. The radiation has silently devastated three generations of people in Kazakhstan – the total number affected is thought to be more than one million – creating health problems ranging from thyroid diseases, cancer, birth defects, deformities, premature aging, and cardiovascular diseases. Life expectancy in the area is seven years less than the national average of Kazakhstan. Photographer Ed Ou has graciously shared with us these photos from the area, with thanks to the excellent Reportage by Getty Images. (25 photos total)

Adil was born blind and afflicted with Infantile Cereberal Paralysis (ICP) and hydrocephalia, as a result of his mothers exposure to radiation during years of Soviet weapons testing during the Cold War. He was abandoned by his parents, and is now cared for in an orphanage. (Ed Ou/Reportage by Getty Images)

06/06/09 Wow no updates for a long time!

I have been trying my best to keep up with all the emails, phone calls (I answer all phone calls from 9-5pm Central time Mon-Fri (952)236-7243), shipping and repairs around here lately and haven’t made any time to write any blurbs on the blog… I’m going to see if we can integrate blog software on the new site (you’re on our new site by the way!) that should make things easier.

Oh yeah… this site you are currently on went live on 06/04/09 at about 1am. It’s still not as polished as we would like and I’m sure we will keep finding little things we want to change throughout the site. It will probably always be a work in progress.

Our hope is that you the customer can quickly and easily find the part or repair you need with this completely new site. If there is something that you think is broken or does not work very well please let us know! We want to make it as easy as possible for you to find exactly what you need.

I hope you enjoy the new site!
