Wednesday Weirdness #203

I’ve got an app on my phone that organizes photos (and videos) by date which would be good except it uses the date the .jpg was created rather than the actual metadata. So all of the photographs I copied from my old phone are sorted by day I copied them to my new phone. What a gigantic annoyance. Obviously, I’m looking for a different gallery app.

Tuesday Two For #203

The quality of the videos we post is dependent upon the camera angle and how much time we want to spend editing and transcoding. So, the foot of the bed perspective can often be higher quality since I don’t have to do much editing. Since a light kit is still on the to-do list so some angles are better than others. But, we’d like to think that all of our movies are good.

Monday Monologue #203

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • Despite the intermittent rain, we were able to put down some fresh mulch over the weekend. We’ve still got one area that deteriorated faster than we had expected that we need to redo. But; we’re not overwhelmed with yard work.
  • I think I finally solved my last lingering issue from the big Windows update from two weeks ago that I thought I had fixed last week. It really shouldn’t be so complicated.
  • We rowed “extra” over the weekend which was good since we were stuck inside today. Hopefully the river won’t go out up much. Or be unrowable because of the debris that wash in from the storms.
  • We watched some football and some soccer over the weekend when we weren’t catching up with the Rio Olympics. We like fall sports; but, were definitely not ready for fall weather.

Friday Featurette #202

The Wife standing naked in front of the mirror drying her hairHere is a better picture of the wife in front of the mirror drying her hair. I see it all the time; but it’s still one of my favorite candid images. We don’t usually like rain; but, were hoping for some this weekend to help the grass. But not enough for the river to get too high. August has been HOT which we like. We have an easier time cooling off than warming up so we would much rather be “hot” than cold. Plus it’s a lot easier and more convenient to dress to be cool when its hot outside than it is to layer up for the cold winter. Have a great weekend!

Wednesday Weirdness #202

I lost my favorites yet again when I installed yesterday’s Windows updates. It was annoying although it wasn’t; as bad as last week since I still had a recent backup handy. Of course, I lost the changes I had made since I created the backup; but, it was good enough since it was only a few sites. From now on, I’ll be sure to backup all of my bookmarks before applying any updates. Obviously, the best thing would be if updates weren’t so problematical. But I don’t hold out much any hope of that.

Monday Monologue #202

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • It took a month; but, The Wife finally got her watch back from the with a new battery and updated pressure certification. It’s nice having a highly water resistant watches; but replacing the batteries is a nuisance.
  • I forgot to charge my phone last night yet, unlike my old phone, the battery was not totally run down when I woke up this morning. It’s great having a device with a good battery and, of course, all the latest features.
  • After days of searching for a solution, I finally solved my problem with the latest Windows 10 update. The way “Modern Apps” including some of the built-in setup configuration tools crash or hang without any error messages is frustrating and makes trouble shooting extremely difficult.
  • We’ve got the closing date for our pool scheduled. I can’t believe we’re already planning for the end of the summer. The summer solstice and the long days that accompany it don’t seem that long ago.

Friday Featurette #201

The Wife standing naked in front of the mirror drying her hairIt was HOT this today so The Wife and I had the river all to ourselves this evening. No other boats. No one fishing from the shore. Just us in our shell. We’re not misanthropes and often row with others. But; occasionally, the solitude is nice. Especially while it is warm. We know we’ll be solitary rowers later in the season when the water isn’t as warm and the days aren’t as long. Sadly, we’re already shopping for navigation lights. Have a great weekend.

Traditional Thursday #201

We had yet another 90-degree day to get out and row and enjoy the sun. We take plenty of water and enjoy having the river mostly and or totally to ourselves. The we come inside and celebrate the end of anther glorious summer day. Days like today don’t come around too often so we make sure to enjoy them while we can.
