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…

So, in my previous post, Paul vs. The Volcano, I talked about the hike up Pacaya. Once we reached the top, the guides said: Let’s go “down” into the lava fields. What? That means we’d have to climb back up! I’ve already down lots of up-climbing. Can’t we stay here? 😀 Well, I may have ridden a horse, but I’m no quitter! Away we go. Down. Down. Down. As I found out later, when we came back up, we had…

Everywhere that I go in my travels, I try to make sure to take a few pictures with my phone to record the GPS location. At the end of the year I can look back and see where I’ve been, or at least where I’ve taken pictures. As you can see from the map, thanks to Lightroom, I’ve pretty much stayed east of The Mississippi River this year. I enjoyed all of the trips, the various walks around those places…

I’ve heard the saying, all things in moderation. From what I saw today at the Greenville Zoo, that includes relaxation. I watched as this Orangutan very cleverly built a hammock from a dangling firehouse. If you look closely, you’ll see that one end is wrapped over the top of the horizontal portion of the hose and he’s holding it with his right foot. He sat there comfortably for a short while until he got very comfortable, relaxed his grip, then…

I’m not a fan of doing group tours, or touristy things, in general, but, from time to time, I’ll stray off of my well-worn path and try something. While in Guatemala, I took the opportunity to visit Tikal. Tikal is located about a 10-hour bus ride or 45 minute plane ride from Antigua. When I asked about the visit to Tikal, I was given two prices. One for the bus, the other for the plane. Well, there was a $200…
