SOME SERIOUS DONKEY TALK GOING ON HERE
When I read posts from our fellow northern bloggers I am reminded how fortunate we folks in the southern parts of the States really are. Our weather isn't the best down here in a lot of places but it is sure one heck of a lot better than what I am seeing up north. I had better stop my grumping about the cold nights. We hit 77F this afternoon:))
Kelly was off to exercise classes at 9 so I started pulling a lot of the dead summer flower stocks out of the flower beds & worked on another little adobe brick step down from the wrap around porch deck. Sun was hot & I was actually down to short sleeves for a few hours. Kelly's Yoga class is in Bisbee to-morrow morning so I'll hang out here & continue with my little projects. Figured out how to start the ATV so that makes things a bit easier for hauling around dirt & bricks now.

<<< Y’KNOW PONCHO, I THINK THAT DOG’S CRAZY
Picasa has just released their newer Picasa 3.6 photo editing program yesterday so I upgraded last night but I don't see anything different from Picasa 3. I actually went from Picasa 3 to Picasa 3.5 a couple of months ago & noticed some positive differences right away but then just a week or so ago my 3.5 mysteriously reverted back to Picasa 3. So now I went to 3.6 & it looks the same as Picasa 3. Confusing?? You bet it is & I don't know what's up with the Picasa folks but I sure hope they stop messing around with their photo editing program before they totally screw it up because there is not another photo editing program out there to compare with the ease & simplicity of Picasa. All my photos are done using Picasa.
Mentioning Picasa reminded me about one of the most asked questions that come across my desktop...... what kind of a camera do you use?? I have blogged about this 3 or 4 times before so I will keep it short. I have a Nikon D50 with an 18-55mm lens, & a Nikon D40 with a 55-200mm lens. I also carry with me at all times a Canon Powershot A720IS & I have an 80mm Stellarve Refractor Nighhawk telescope that I can adapt to either one of my Nikons giving me a telephoto lens equivalent of 700mm. I also carry a 2X tele-converter that doubles the power of any lens it is matched to. All my cameras do a great job for me & as an advanced amateur they are all I need for our simple travel blog. I've had my Nikon D50 for about 4 years, my D40 for 2 years & my Canon A720 for about a year & a half. All cameras were purchased at HENRY'S camera shops except the Canon which I picked up at Wal-Mart.
Live Writer threw an error message at me last night about 2 minutes into the publishing process but it was a different one than I usually get so I waited a couple of minutes & tried again. Success, but it sure had me doing some jumping up & down for a few minutes!! 10 A.M. MORNING MOON >>>
