President Obama’s Decision on Syria
 

President Obama’s Decision on Syria

Just now, President Obama laid out the case for a targeted military action against Syrian regime targets as a result of their use of chemical weapons that killed over one thousand people — including hundreds of children. The President also made clear that this would not be an open-ended intervention, and there will be with no American troops on the ground.

While the President was clear on the need for action, he announced he would seek Congressional authorization for the use of force.

Watch the President’s statement now in his own words:

2003 Honda Accord Brake and TCS ! Warning Sensor Lights On
 

Honda Accord Brake and TCS ! Warning Sensor Lights On

Have you had the lights on the dash of your Honda Accord 2003 or similar model go on all of a sudden.

There’s a few possible problems that could have occurred related to the brake master cylinder that may have failed.

There’s a sensor that attaches to the master cylinder that may have failed. In some cases you will read that if you disconnect the sensor the lights will turn off on the dash. This is only recommended if you are testing and not a long term solution, the sensor will alert you if the fluid level is low.

We have also read that if the system is flushed, that that sometimes helps get the sensor working again. Perhaps a bad connection on the sensor. There are others that cover the sensor with black tape, but I don’t know what that is about.

A new master cylinder sells for about $180 or so and you can find a rebuilt one for maybe $140 or less.

 

 

 
Chances are the brake fluid level switch inside the resevoir has stuck. I have replaced a few master cylinders for this, ( the resevoir is NOT sold seperately ). If you unplug the brake fluid level connector, see if the BRAKE light goes out. If it does, you have found the problem. I’m sure the TCS DTC is related to this.

Cleaning the resevoir with brake cleaner and putting new fluid back in

There is a dtc (data trouble code) in your abs/tcs system. It could have something to do with the at (auto trans)system. You have to have your local dealer scan it with their hds tablet, and probably charge you to do so.

E-Cigarette Vendor Moratorium 45 Day Ban

Introduced in 2003 in China, kids using them. This is a precautionary move by the city of Seal Beach, CA.

Are people really using then? There are so many types, that there could be some that are in fact more dangerous than others due to chemicals used in the vapor formulas. I wonder if a plain vapor flavor is used if the same effects have been found.

Obituary for Angelita Caballero Calvillo

Angelita was born on January 5, 1932 in Quisicedo, Spain, to Victor and Aquilina (Gomez Peña) Caballero. She passed away on August 23, 2013, in Laguna Beach, California, at the age of 81 years.

Angelita was raised in Entramborrios De Sotoscueba, Spain and became the 5th child at that time. Her mother died 2 years after she was born and Angelita was left to live with her aunt, due to the fact that her father was forced to flee the country during the Spanish Civil War (all of the remaining siblings were sent to live with various relatives or trade schools in Spain and in the United States). Angelita lived on a farm in Entramborrios with her Aunt Prudencia and her uncle Victorino Gomez, cousins Victorino Jr. and Margarita, until the age of 14 (1946) when her father was able to send for her. She and her brother Fernando made the journey to the United States and joined her father, Victor, and his wife, Maria, as well as her siblings, Josephina, Felicitas, Victor, Felix, and Louis in Los Angeles, California. It was there that a few years later she eventually met her dear husband, Rogelio Calvillo.

Rogelio and Angie were married on March 31, 1954, in Los Angeles, California. They settled in Whittier, California, and built a wonderful life for themselves where they raised five loving children. As a homemaker, Angie was able to remain home with her children, while working part-time as a seamstress. That was a special blessing for her. Rogelio, her husband, passed away in 1989, at which point Angelita moved in with her brother and sister-in-law, Victor and Margarita Caballero, who provided a loving home for her until she became ill in 2012. At that time her children then cared for her in their homes until she passed in Laguna Beach on August 23, 2013.

Outside of her family, Angelita enjoyed dancing, cooking and shopping. She was a devoted Catholic who attended St. Mary of the Assumption Church in Whittier, California.

Angelita is survived by her children, Beatrice (Dave) Rosenbaum, Roger (Teresa) Calvillo, Joseph (Arlene) Calvillo, Susan (Alfonso) Galvez, and Monica (Lewis) Zuker; 11 grandchildren; 5 great grandchildren; and four brothers, Victor Caballero, Felix Caballero, Fernando Caballero, and Louis Caballero. She joins her husband Rogelio Calvillo and her two sisters Josephina Caballero Morales and Felicitas Caballero Garcia in Heaven.

A visitation will take place on Thursday, August 29, beginning at 5:00pm at White Emerson Mortuary, 13304 E Philadelphia Street, Whittier, California, 90601. A Rosary will follow at 6:00pm. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, August 30, 2013, 11:15am, at St. Mary of the Assumption Church, 7215 S Newlin Ave. Whittier, California, 90602, 562-698-0107. Burial will follow the Mass at Rose Hills Memorial Park, Whittier, California.

iPhone 5 USB Data Charge Cables Best Prices
 

If you are like me you like to find the best prices on phone charging cables.  There are some very cheap cables out there, that when you use them a couple times or they get stretched a little they will stop working. So the search continues to find the best cables, short of pay the prices Apple charges for cables, you have some alternatives where you can pay less than $10 per cable and potentially end up with some some cables that could last at least a few months.

Most of the time I don’t really care how short or long the cable is.
