One of the things that good about working downtown and walking everywhere rather than driving is that I’m going noticeably longer between fill ups. I did not realize how much gas a few lunchtime errands were using each week. I still walk when it’s cold or rainy and not much fun to be a pedestrian But, I am really looking toward to spring.

I just need to work on getting the editing finished quicker.
Here is more of this week’s movie that we are experimenting with. Perhaps we will use a different tool with the part we post next. I upgraded to the latest version of Corel’s VisualStudio recently and we haven’t tried it yet.
P.S.: I installed yet another update to WordPress, our blogging software today. Hopefully it didn’t break anything that wasn’t already broken.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of our visitors! We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday.
