I am very late in posting these pictures; primarily because our computer picked today to install Window’s October Update. We didn’t lose any files which was a good thing. But the update process took almost six hours! The “This may … Continue reading
It’s just the first week in December and I already seem to have caught my first (and hopefully) last winter cold of the season. I feel almost “OK” which means I’m not miserable. But, I would much rather be feel … Continue reading
It wasn’t “significant”; but, it was still depressing to see snow on the ground and ice on the roads. It already seems like January even though its only November. We’re hoping for a mild winter; which doesn’t seem to likely considering how cold and blustery November has been. After last year’s cold snowy winter, almost anything would be an improvement.
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.
Amazingly, our camera stayed on for the entire photo session. That shouldn’t be noteworthy. However, with the way our photo sessions have gone recently it was a welcome change to have a full selection of photographs. It won’t last. Or camera is past it’s useful life even for the undemanding standards of a bed-cam. So, we’re going to enjoy it while for as long as we can.
For the second week in a row, our camera died and we have a very limited selection of photographs. It’s become more than a minor annoyance. There are more important things to buy on the to-do list, so we may need to compromise on features and capabilities just to have something that works reliably. Our current unit is old, especially for an electronic device. Anything new would likely be better.
I did a major upgrade to the internals of this blog this evening. Please let us know if you see anything strange. Everything seemed to be operating normally. But, software can be very temperamental. Especially with such a big change in versions. It was good to update to the latest version. But, I’m sure something, big or small, is broken somewhere.
Our pool is closed for the season. It’s been cold for a while, so, we weren’t going to swim anymore. But, it’s still kinda depressing to look in the back yard and see the pool with the winter cover on. We are hoping for a short, unseasonably warm winter to make up for the unseasonably long, cold one we had last year.
I recently discovered a few typographical errors in the tags used for posts that resulted in a several posts being miscategorized. And, amazingly, despite all the new “features” that have been added to WordPress, there is still no easy way … Continue reading
