Recently, my iMac has been acting a bit flakily the last year, or so. Some weeks it would work just fine. Zero problems. Other times it would lock up and become unresponsive after I clicked on an app. Sometimes, it happened daily. A reboot always seemed to change its attitude and I continued on, happily. The past couple of weeks, though, I’ve had to restore from my Time Machine backups to be able to log back in. Unfortunately, that takes…

No. Not like Colorado Rocky Mountain “high”, but a few feet above ground level 🙂 On Sunday, I went with a group on a hike in Crowder’s Mountain State Park. I’d been there a few times before. It was a great day to be out and about, walking through the woods and up the mountain. There were 10 of us, 8 women, 2 men. According to what I could find online, the elevation change from the visitor’s center to the…

Wow! It’s been nearly a month since I last posted. I’ve been keeping quite busy, enjoying life. I’m adding lots of miles onto the sneakers, going the YMCA a couple of times per week, learning a new (to me) programming language called Scala, working, visiting friends, and of course, continuing with my Spanish lessons, etc. You know, life! Last week I spent 8 days in Ohio with my sister. I decided that since I work from home, home can be…

Today is my birthday, once again. Now, I’m officially eligible for some senior discounts.

I try to cross one of the fear-based things off of my list. I’m still thinking…

The chicks above my door are growing. I’m sure that they’ll be gone soon and I don’t have a really good photo of them just yet. This is the ‘best’ one that I have. I like it because it is somewhat abstract, but shows their activity. Momma comes and feeds them many times per day. She stays quite busy! Whenever I hear them cheeping, I grab my camera, try to get a shot; however, the angle is such that it…

Not Tony, but I like the shot anyway. I just finished reading Cedric’s blog post, The chip off the block. In the post he talks about his daughter’s photography and shares his obvious joy about her art as well as well as sharing a few pictures. If you’ve not read it, it’s certainly worth a stop by to read about it. After reading his post, I thought about my two guys. Neither is interested in photography, particularly, or any other…
