Fifty-two years: Technology, social media, and me (and you)

Fifty-two years: Technology, social media, and me (and you)

I turned 52 today; I’ve seen over a half century of some of the most amazing changes in our world. I remember when we started locking our outside doors … when I was 6. Milk and potato chips were delivered to our basement door every week. There was no voice mail or answering machines or […]

My new watch

My new watch

I ordered a watch for less than $10 (including shipping) online – it looked cool in the ad and now that I’ve got it I think it’s really neat.  I love watches that don’t get in the way, and this one qualifies. As you can see from the picture, you push a button and some […]

Several species of small furry photographs….

I haven’t posted a collection of photos in a while, so here goes… There are pics from all over LA in here, especially from my son’s recent visit.

“Eating with a spoon, they won’t give you a knife” (video)

Nathan and I went to an El Pollo Loco for a quick lunch – the food is pretty healthy, fast, and tasty (he agreed just so you kn0w). But, they only gave him a fork and spoon to eat a two-piece lunch.  Of course, I thought of Peter Gabriel’s wonderful “Lead a Normal Life,” and […]

Palm Desert (with pics and a video of course!)

We visited Aviva’s mom and her boyfriend; we figured we were due a long weekend away from the valley. So we bundled up Iggy and Jett, loaded the Prius and took off. The drive was easy – we left on Saturday and hit no traffic – what a nice change for LA… We had a […]

Volunteer day at Sunrise Elementary School

Our team at DIRECTV decided to do a volunteer day at Sunrise Elementary School. We packed up in cars and drove over; the school is on the edge of East LA. We had lunch, the principal told us about the history of the school, and then we broke up into teams of 4 to teach […]

5 pics with the new Hipstamatic release and Fashion pack

I grabbed the latest release of Hipstamatic Friday along with the free Fashion pack; yesterday I tried the combination out with four “art” shots and one fun pic; hope you enjoy them! As for the program, the latest Hipstamatic is a huge improvement – the old one would eventually stop working, requiring me to restart […]

Pictures: Toastmasters Leadership Institute and some others

I attended Toastmasters leadership training last Saturday – all club officers try to attend training twice a year; clubs get credit towards their goals by having at least 4 officers training twice in the year. We also had an offsite meeting for work to talk about offshoring; I took a picture of a cool flowering […]
