Well, the calendar indicates that we, here in the northern hemisphere, are at the beginning of winter. However, I had a bit of a different experience this morning, a bit of “fall”. I decided to walk through the woods yesterday evening, enjoying the long shadows and the the diffuse light common in the wintertime. That was great, so, I decided to do it again this morning. It was a bit chilly, 25 degrees F with a bit of wind, giving…

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! I know that it’s not _that_ kind of boxing, silly! 🙂 I’m not stoooooooopid! Boxing Day in the UK and Canada is similar to our Black Friday where retailers place lots of items on sale, but happens the day after Christmas! That said, though, the huge discounts combined with the large crowds could lead to a bit of the type of boxing depicted here! I saw that widget first! Now, gimme!!!

Usually, when I think of Christmas, I think of it as a time for family gatherings, sitting around chatting, laughing, drinking a bit of eggnog or whatever is your “thing”. This Christmas Day has been a nice, quiet, laid back time of contemplation. Time to think, consider, and of course be grateful. I was looking through my various files, seeing where I’ve been on different Christmas days. Two years ago, I was on a house boat in southern India! Last…

I, for one, will be glad to see the sun set later and later. I have a difficult time staying up during the late fall and early winter. Yesterday was the winter solstice.

With that thought, I thought of a trip or two that I’d like to take. I’d like to…

Nope. This picture wasn’t taken by a Nikon D850 because I don’t own one. In fact, it was taken with an iPhone! 🙂 Sometimes, I love to listen to mind chatter during my various walks. The topics are all over the place, jumping here and there, randomly – sometimes sticking for a moment, then like a butterfly, flitting off into some new territory. Recently, after seeing and reading about the new Nikon D850, it’s decided to visit that particular flower…

What do Rutland, VT, Honesdale, PA, Buckhannon, WV, St. George, UT, Snow Hill, MD, Visaila, CA, and Monroe, WI have in common? Give up? You should because you’ll never guess. 🙂 Those are all places that I got to “visit” while I was working for Moore Business Forms back in 1991 – 1992, in Denton, TX. We were upgrading computer systems. I was doing C and COBOL – yes, together! For nearly all of them, we had fly to a…
