228. 44. Two numbers. Just numbers. The first number is the highest it has been in my life. It has increased by leaps and bounds over the years. At the end of high school, it was 118. At the end of basic training, it topped out at 130. After a time overseas it climbed toContinue reading “Numbers”
I just sold a somewhat old gadget to Gazelle.com. It is the first time I’ve tried selling back an old electronic device – that still had considerable value – to an online service. I’ve heard good words about Gazelle.com. I am hoping I won’t be disappointed. It was easy enough to find the item IContinue reading “My Gazelle.com Experience”
Prometheus The tagline for the movie is: They went looking for our beginning. What they found could be our end. Synopsis: Ridley Scott does science fiction again. I remember watching Alien at the Old Mill 6 Theaters in Mountain View. My sister took me. I don’t recall if I knew what the movie was aboutContinue reading “Searching for Answers – Quick Review of Prometheus”
I have been on a photo publishing streak lately. I have tried to be diligent to post new photos quickly, as well as going back to post older photos. Here are a few direct links to new albums: At the Children’s Discovery Museum – Spending a few hours here with Mia. It is her firstContinue reading “Posting Photos New and Old”
One of my favorite podcasts has unexpectedly moved podcast networks! It was previously on 5by5 but is now on the Mule Radio. I don’t know the reason for the change. But people are speculating here and there. My guess? The 5by5 Network is growing. Gruber, the primary person on The Talk Show, probably couldn’t workContinue reading “The Talk Show Moves Networks”
Farrah and I were able to actually watch another movie! Last week we finally saw The Hunger Games – which I would rate Matinee. This week we watched The Avengers.When filming The Avengers was first announced I was a bit nervous. How could a movie with so many characters do justice to the comic book? IContinue reading “The Avengers”
It has been awhile. Again. Life has just been busy. But I have a few moments right now to put down a few thoughts. As I write this, it is Friday afternoon. I’m on the train heading home. I am typing on my new iPad. This new little machine is a joy to work on.Continue reading “Again”
We came back from our trip to Hawaii this past Thursday. I wanted to post a few photos I took during vacation. What’s interesting about these photos is that they were all taken with the iPhone 4S. Yup, I left my Canon 7D at home. We did, however, bring the Canon S90 with us, andContinue reading “Vacation Photos with iPhone 4S”
Today we visited Pearl Harbor to specifically see the USS Arizona. Unfortunately, Mia fell asleep during the short film that is watched before taking the short boat ride out to the memorial. She was also asleep all the time we were on the memorial. It wasn’t until we started to leave that she stirred fromContinue reading “Pearl Harbor and the Zoo”
A few photos from our first day in Hawaii. The first day was mainly getting Mia acclimated to the new time zone, and for me to recover from my Dramamine hit. Oh, but plenty of good food was eaten yesterday. What’s on the menu for today? We shall see.
I hope to be on a plane to Hawaii when you read this. I’ll be doped up on Dramamine which will help me make it through the plane flight. I’ve always has a little trouble getting on a plane, whether it was a short or long flight. But for some odd reason I’ve been gettingContinue reading “Anxiety Sucks”
These are a few photos I took with my iPhone 4S. They came out ok.
