Quick NECA Cruise Update 05 – the rest of Bar Harbor

I’m writing this from the LaGuardia Delta Gate 29 (Terminal C) . . . our scheduled 1:10 pm flight has now been pushed back to 3:10 pm. Most annoying and an unwelcomed development given that we were scheduled to (by now) have pick … Continue reading

A litle of this and a little of that

On a recent update, Samsung added the capability for Super-slow Motion to the Note 8. Mind you, it’s very limited. By limited, I mean that you can only shoot a few seconds of video and end up with about 6 … Continue reading

It begins in a field . . .

. . . specifically, this field. That’s an unedited photo from the Nikon P900 of a field in the Crab Orchard Lake Wildlife Refuge.  It was an overcast day with intermittent rain (it wasn’t raining when I snapped this). I … Continue reading

Things and stuff and photos and post-processing – part one

Our exercise routine used to be thus: 1.5 hours at the gym on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Sometimes we’d get in additional walking. The 1.5 hours were split between free weights, aerobics (rowing for me), and weight machines.  … Continue reading
