We were thinking earlier today that our digital camera is over 8 years old. Even though it is very finicky, its amazing that it still works at all. We’ve reached the point where we are (pleasantly) surprised if it operatels normally for the entire photo session. Which, of course means, that it’s long past time to get a new one. We will certainly be checking the online sales on Friday. Anyway, here is a short video we made to make sure it can still record movies semi-reliably.
Here is the movie we made. It’s not very long. We wish there was more. Maybe next week.
Despite the problems we’re having with photographs, videos still work OK. Luckily, we happened to make a movie this week. Hopefully it will not take to long to fix the presentation of photos. For now, enjoy the movie.
I really like the progressive lenses in the eyeglasses I got this year. Except when I bump them and get them out of alignment. The issue isn’t as severe as the last few pairs I had. Unfortunately, today, I had a mishap that will result in a trip to the optometrist first thing in the morning. I can still read things OK. But, I’m starting to get a headache. Hopefully everything will soon be as good as new.
Our camera died again after just two photos! This time, I restarted it in movie mode and, thankfully, it operated normally for the remainder of our photo session. Its old, especially for consumer electronics. We would have replaced it long ago if we didn’t use our smartphones for most photographs and videos. It’s unusual for us to have such outdated electronics. So, it’s doubly annoying.
This weekend looks like a good one to get in the swimming pool. Unfortunately, our pool heater will not ignite. With any luck, the water will be warm enough that it won’t matter. We’re going to get it fixed since there is not any point in having a pool that you can’t use. But, we’ve had certainly enough broken things already this year. Hopefully we will be lucky and it will be something minor and we can. We’ve definitely had more than our share of bad luck recently. Have a great weekend. Maybe our next post will be about relaxing in the pool.
Our new refrigerator is great. Our only “complaint” is that it doesn’t make ice as fast as the old one even though the freezer is colder. And, of course, it was gigantically expensive. We’ll have a few cool days that we will not need much, if any, ice for our sports water bottles and the ice maker will eventually fill up. But, we’ll remember the cost for a long time. Not having a lot of low-cost options is one of the unfortunate realities of our kitchen.
It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago that summer had just started and we were enjoying the long days; but, sadly, it’s become apparent that summer is definitely starting to wane. The evenings are cooler and sunset is 45-minutes earlier than it used to be. We still have plenty of time to have a good row. But, its usually getting dark by the time we are home. It’s been a great summer that has zoomed by all too quickly.
We are doing another movie while we can. Hopefully the bed isn’t too loud yet. The movie is higher resolution and slightly longer than what we typically post so the .MP4 file is big. It has been many, many years; but I still remember the days when we couldn’t post such a large file.
Now that the air conditional isn’t so loud and doesn’t have an annoying vibration, we’ve moved the bed back against the outside wall. It was only a few inches away from the wall before. But, I never quite got used to the bed not being next to at least one wall. The bed is still new so I don’t think it increases the noise from the bed springs. Can you tell any difference?
