As Google is prone to do, it’s discontinuing a well-used piece of software, Google Reader. I need to find a new ‘home’ to host my RSS feeds. I’ve been using Feedly, but sometimes it seems quite ‘wonky’. Sometimes I cannot log in, other times my feeds don’t show up, still other times, it works. I’m not exactly so confident that it will still work on July 1st, after Google Reader bites the dust. For those of you who are using…

The rabbits in my backyard are not skittish in the least. In fact, in my opinion, they are quite ballsy! They only take off when they absolutely have to. If I see a couple of them in the backyard, walk out, have a look, they don’t move. They just stay quite still and wait until I leave. If I approach, they’ll take off if I get to within, say 10 feet or so, then only go far enough to get…

Half a lifetime ago, for him. 10+ years ago (2003) At some time around 8:00 AM on Friday, June 12th, in Dallas, TX, a little bundle of joy came into my life. I think that this is the earliest that he’s ever been awake. Sure, he’s seen 8:00 AM before, but it was after staying up all night, surely not from waking up, voluntarily. Over the years, I’ve watched him grow, mature. I’ve seen him play all manner of sports:…

As a kid I used to raid my mother’s cupboard and plant all manner of things: beans, popcorn, any type of seed. I just liked to see things grow, I suppose.

I planted them, along with one cilantro plant, and the…

The end part of this week has been about the rain. Rain is forecast for the entire weekend as well as next week, too. Well, at least it makes things nice and green. I decided to go out this morning to a favorite walking spot of mine. This path is about 6/10 of a mile long, or about 1 Km. It’s located behind a strip mall. From my house to the entrance is about 1.8 miles, I think. I walk…

Way back in the day, my father used to take me fishing. I remember that, on some days, we’d catch so many fish in so little time that we’d be off of the lake and headed back home in about 2 or 3 hours. Other times, we could spend the entire day, sitting, waiting, talking, eating, doing everything EXCEPT catching fish. They just weren’t biting. So it is, it seems with photography. There are times when I can spend hours…
