Friday Featurette #291

Today’s video is in the category of ” it’s good to know how to do things even if you don’t have a reason”. I don’t often rotate videos during transcoding; but needed to for this one. It’s a mystery why the camera saves videos in the wrong orientation whenever its rotated. But, its good to know how to fix it.

As you can see, The Wife has is starting to get a tan since we’re really been getting outside and enjoying the sun. Hopefully, there will be plenty of sunshine on Saturday and Sunday for us to bike and row in.

Have a great weekend.

Traditional Thursday #290

The Wife standing naked in front of the mirror drying her hairWe did not have a lot photographs since the camera stopped taking pictures. Fortunately, there were a few that we liked so, we can post a mix of new photos and videos rather than reaching into the way-back machine.

Traditional Thursday #289

The Wife fixing the pillows on the bedHere is a candid photograph of The Wife making up the new bed after our photo session was over. We’re not posting it for any particular reason. It just seemed like a fun picture. Life is good now that the days aren’t so cold, wet and dreary. We really enjoy the sunshine. Even when we aren’t outside doing things. The days are long, the sun is warm. And summer is finally here.

I am definitely ready for the weekend. Even more so than usual. I caught a cold on Monday or Tuesday week and by Thursday I was so tired, I didn’t even have enough energy to go get my new eyeglasses even though they were ready. I’m feeling better today; but, still more sick than well. Going to spend some quality family time and try to recuperate as much as possible. Have a great weekend. See you on the other side.

Tuesday Two For #280

The Wife sitting naked on the bed with a hot washcloth on her faceRecently, The Wife has been using a hot washcloth on her face in the morning when she wakes up. Everyone has their morning routine. She doesn’t think it’s that unusual; but I know I would fall back asleep only to wake up some time later with a cold, wet towel on my face. Anyway, I thought it was interesting view. So, here is a picture I took before I left for work today.

The Wife in the bathroom getting ready for a photo sessionWith all of the popular browser starting to display warnings about “insecure” sites, I’ve been experimenting with changing this blog to be secure only. Everything should be the same except the warning now should be replaced by a padlock icon. I don’t know if I’ll keep the configuration permanently. But, now, even If I revert back, I know the best way to set everything up when I need to. Yet one more task that is a lot more difficult to perform with WordPress than it should be.

Have a great weekend. We hope you have a Monday off and can enjoy a three day one.

Best of luck to whomever you are rooting for in the Super Bowl. We’re hoping for a competitive game without another 4th quarter comeback by the league’s MVP. They have already been in more games than anyone else. And, of course, our favorite team home is watching on TV. An upset is not very likely, but we’re hoping. Have a great Super Bowl weekend!

We are definitely ready for the weekend. Its supposed to be warmer; but, wet and rainy. Better than cold and snowy but not nearly as good as hot and sunny. I don’t expect the weather to be warm enough to get out and row every January and February. But, there have been a lot of days where I needed my big coat. It’s probably wishful thinking; but I put the snow suit I wear to shovel back in the basement. We’ll see if I was being overly optimistic. “Light” snow is forecast for Monday. Here is a higher quality video than what we usually post. Have a great weekend.

The Wife and I will be on vacation the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day as will not be posting until January. We will be around. Just super-busy with several important things going on. We should post again in a couple of weeks.

Until then. We wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

Tuesday Two For #269

The Wife standing naked in front of the mirror drying her hairThe 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.”
