We’re Revved up for the Daytona 500

It’s time to start warming up those engines! After a delay to weather conditions, the 2020 Daytona 500 is having its season opener today for the 62nd time, continuing its extensive tradition of delivering unbelievable finishes, tense races, and more than plenty of speed and impeccable driving skills.
For those that may be unfamiliar with what Daytona 500, the competition is centered around a 500-mile long race that takes place annually at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. The race remains the most important and prestigious event on the NASCAR schedule and holds the biggest purse.
This year’s Daytona 500 will see professional stock car racing driver Austin “The Ace” Dillon return to defend his 2018 win. Dillon won the NASCAR Rookie of the Year in the Truck Series back in 2010 and he is the current record holder when it comes to the most consecutive poles in the Nationwide Series with four.
The 2020 Daytona 500 has already generated headlines after the President of the United States (who serves as the grand marshal of the race) became just the second president in the history of the Daytona 500 to utter the iconic line commanding the drivers to start their engines.

What Are You Doing This President’s Day Weekend?

Next Monday, the United States will be observing the federal holiday we all know better as President’s Day. Usually, the holiday is observed on the third Monday of February and is meant to commemorate the first man to serve as US President: George Washington. Since the Uniform Monday Holiday Act was enacted by Congress, the 15th through the 21st is the typical “window” when the holiday is celebrated.
There’s an interesting fact or two regarding the name of the holiday. “President’s Day” isn’t the “real” name of the holiday, it’s Washington’s Birthday. While Washington is supposed to be celebrated, the holiday has since come to serve as a way to celebrate presidents of the past and present. The holiday's name may vary depending on the state. In some cases, it also goes by Washington's and Lincoln's Birthday.
A popular legend about George Washington was when, after being given a hatchet, he cut down his father's cherry as a boy. Once his father confronted him, it was confirmed by young George who uttered his now-famous line, "I can't tell a lie." As a result of this incident, cherry pie is a popular food eaten on President's Day.

Snapping Great Photos at Sea

Part of the deep sea fishing trip is taking pictures to remember the experience. After all, if you make a big catch, you’ll more than likely want to remember the exciting moment. With that in mind, there are some tips to know when you want to snap some pictures at sea.
It may cover the eyes, but you may wish to wear sunglasses when taking pictures. On particularly sunny days in South Florida, the sun can be borderline blinding, especially when it reflects off of the sea. The last thing you want is a bunch of people squinting in your pictures because the sun is too bright. On top of that, sunglasses will protect your eyes from damaging UV rays.
Take the sun’s position into account when snapping your photos. With your back to the sun, it will naturally illuminate a subject. Just make sure that the sun isn’t pointing directly into the camera lens as this may cause a person to appear washed out or too dark.
If you do snag a big fish, what you want to do is provide a visual representation of how large it is. There are different ways you can go about this. Using a tape measure when taking the picture is an option or you could use an object that will show the size difference.
