They say that the early bird gets the worm, and that may be true. Looked at the other way, the early worm gets eaten! Not so good for the worm to be early, right? Well, this is neither about worms nor birds, neither of which I saw this morning when I was stomping around in the snow at a pleasant 13 degrees! As is becoming normal, at least in fits and starts, I wake up at 3:00 AM, stay awake…

The Snowpocalypse is here! Well, maybe not all tht bad, but it is snowing in Charlotte and the schools are closed … well, closed yesterday because of the “forecast” of snow. 🙂 No worries, though. I don’t drink milk, preferring to drink almond milk, though I don’t know how they milk those almonds! 🙂 Thoughts of milking almonds are not important at this moment, though, not nearly as important as bread and milk! I have plenty of bread to weather…

I like to dive right in, figure the good stuff out, and then work my way through the book, using the index, to cover the bits that I need to know right now. I think that they might call that impatient, but I’m not sure. 😉 Rarely do I read a technical book, especially about cameras…

So, as some of you know, I’ve been working with a teacher, Vidal, who lives in Guatemala. Over the four years that we’ve been working together, he’s become my very good friend, like a brother, actually. Naturally, when I go to Guatemala, I want to see him, hang out with him. And, so it was on Saturday, July 1st. We decided to meet, the 3 of us: Vidal, Kayla, and myself. We met near the market and headed for a…

So, there I was, out on a walk, minding my own business. I was headed for my normal 1/2 way point, the fountain. I noticed that someone had added a little bit of soap to the mix. I stepped closer to have a look. The bubbles seemed quite innocuous, tranquil. They were swaying back and forth with the modest breeze that was created by the fountain. Beautiful. I stepped closer to have a look and suddenly, they attached! Imagine my…
