I’m not sure we’ll be keeping Wade’s new Sony W150 Cybershot.

March 30 – Everyday Joe’s

everyday-joes

Everyday Joe’s Coffee was the site of the first NoCo Bloggers Meetup. I took a great picture of everyone smiling, light looked o.k., but the shutter was open just a bit too long and it’s blurry. Then I took another with the flash – and everyone looked drunk. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that state of being, except its documentation by a stranger.)

The building was originally a gas station in the 1920s (?). Now it is a church 1 day a week and a coffee house the rest. Great business, great architecture, great coffee, kind souls.

February 1 – transformers?

Monsters v. aliens?

Nope, just the substation down the road. Love the 1950’s tech look!

The “A” in the background dates to when CSU was known as an Ag. school.  It’s a 20 minute uphill hike from our house.

January 31 – New webcam

groucho

I’ll be honest. I don’t own Photoshop and I can’t work Gimp.

I can use my new 2 megapixel Logitech 9000 Pro to add some Groucho glasses to a self-portrait.

I’ve got moose antlers, a pirate eye patch, a crown, a pig nose and bunny ears.

Anyone want to Skype me? I am so ready for you now!

january 24 – tech center

techcenter

As you walk into our main floor living room, the first thing you probably notice is our tech command center. This is the hub for the wireless in the house. We have t-mobile’s at home service and have been using their wireless router. When I couldn’t connect to the internet from 30 feet away, we switched back to the Apple Airport for our main wireless.

My husband wanted to run a wire from the cable modem up the wall and down the second floor hallway to my office, but I voted for the Airport instead. Sometimes my house is more like a dorm room than I’d like.

The wii is at the top left. I had to move it to the “adult” tv or I’d never get to use the wii fit.

We use:

  • 2 desktops (HP) + 1 in the box (Still debating)
  • 1 slate (Not sure of the make on this one)
  • 3 tablets (All Fujitsu)
  • 2 laptops (Dell & a macbook)
  • 1 xbox
  • 1 wii
  • 1 ps2

January 23 – wiifit

wii

Well, they all won’t be masterpieces.

I am not in the habit of posting unflattering photos of myself, however I will make this one exception.  (I look like my grandma – not that there’s anything wrong with that, gram!)

We now own both a functioning Wii AND a WiiFit. That’s me and Mii practicing the hula hoops. Wowza, those hips are a blur of hoopin’ action!

In one day I worked up to pro in the ski jump and all yoga moves. We won’t discuss the strength training.

Do you think this will help me master MonkeyBall?

With my new Nikkor lens, I need a Nikon Speedlight flash. I’m noticing a quarter moon shadow on the bottom of photos from the length of the lens. Anyone have a preference between the SB 600 and the SB 800?

Personal Commandments

See the big picture. (and get a shot of it!) Step up. Give back. Do something different. Make a lot of mistakes, but never the same ones twice. Be ridiculously happy. Action, not reaction. learn, laugh, love.

Haba na haba, hujaza kibaba.

Be the Change!
