Minna and Hannah were gone this weekend to Seattle so I borrowed the camera from work and went to Central Park to take pictures and learn how to use this camera. It was a great lesson in depth of field. I really was trying to take some photos with some out of focus and some of the photo in focus. And this is the result. These are the best that I took of that day. I took these with a FujiFilm s7000.

this one is my favorite of the day

Carrie blogs!

I showed my sister-in-law Carrie how to set up a blog and post pictures and she posted a couple of pictures and I thought that would be the end of that. Alas I have been proved wrong again. She posted, with no assistance from her husband or me, more pictures. Good for you Carrie!

I should mention that I found all the cool stuff to see below on It's a pretty good blog. They have some pretty cool stuff but I really don't like them when they use profanity. I thought the first time I when to that it was the coolest clean blog. It had all sorts of just wierd cool stuff then I started going there on a regular basis and they proved me wrong, oh they still had cool stuff but it's not an entirely clean blog. I wish they would not post profanity and potty humor stuff. It's so degrading on their #1 linked-to blog status. Sure they get a lot of links but it's just so lame when they swear and are vulgar. Shame on boingboing for being such and awesome blog that can't keep their nose clean.

(actually I should mention that not all the things below were posted on but that my web surfing was initiated there)

I'm always hunting down better ways to do things. I found this great list of tips on 43folders.

Some of the comments are pretty helpful as well.

I don't think I'll every say much in politics on my blog. this link is about the extent of it. Oh you never know... I might say more someday.


People are so crafty. It is amazing. You can do anything with just about nothing if you have enough time. Here is a link to a book about making something from nothing. This page gives some pretty good examples of making a whole lot of something from nothing. check it out
