The Wife is slowly recovering from the flu. She’s getting better every day; but she’s still not back to her normal self. So, this week we’re just posting a few candid photographs. We should have more photos of our regular “activities” next week.”
Today we are posting a short video clip made with Corel VideoStudio X10. It’s a big file to be so short. If it were longer it would need to be down-sampled. But, it was quick and easy to add a mosaic (pixilation) effect with the track motion filter. Unfortunately, it can’t do anything about the sound.
I just upgraded all of our PCs to the latest version of Windows. Our primary computer took a long time; but everything seems to be working. (Except for one unusual error message.) Of course, I see that an update to … Continue reading
It’s not quite over; but we seem to have survived Friday the 13th with no mishaps. Looking forward to a typical Saturday (and Sunday). We’ve got a lot of chores. But; we still plan to enjoy the last warm day is in the weather forecast. It’s likely the last warm, sunny day we will see until next spring.
Have a Great weekend.
I just upgraded a WordPress plugin which totally broke this site. I had to delete and reinstall in order to get things working. I knew what caused the issue so it was easy to fix. But I wonder about all of the people who have automatic updates turned on. They would have had no idea what happened. Anyway, here is another video to kick off the weekend. It’s not a long weekend for us; but we still have a busy couple of days planned. Have a great, and hopefully three-day weekend.
I installed a new version of WordPress, the software that runs this blog, today. Security updates are good. But new version needs a lot more testing before being releases so that sites don’t require constant updates. Sadly, there are few if any good alternatives, especially ones that are truly in the spirit of FOSS.
Today is a getaway day as I like to call them. Which means we don’t have to work and are heading off into the sunset. The “sunset” in this case is a quick weekend trip. The weather is great warm and sunny with neither rain or cooler temperatures in the forecast. We plan to take a few more Fridays off this year to enjoy the day and elongate the weekend. You can never have enough three-day weekends.
Here is a short video of the most important part of the preparation for a photo session—The Wife inserting her diaphragm. It’s getting harder and harder to find the appropriate supplies; but it still works well for us which is the most important thing.
Rain is forecast for today and tomorrow until the remnants of the hurricane move off to the east. Sometimes we get damaging rain, wind and hail in the aftermath; and sometimes just rain. Comparatively speaking, a little rain isn’t bad. And, once it clears, it looks like the rest of the weekend will be warm and sunny. Have a great three-day holiday weekend. See you on the other side.
