Holidays: Holidays, are they done for a while? Oh good!!! Sometimes there is way to much of a good thing 🙂
Blogging: I am starting back blogging today but it might be a bit before I get on track with photos and such. I will at least say Hello and Night Folks each day 🙂 Hey, that is the best I can do for now, LOL.
Texting: Over the last year I have just started to do a little texting … why you ask? Well, seems like over the last year I have run into people who want to do it. Most of the folks I know are older like myself and didn’t want to text, but that seems to be changing a little. What made me think of this is that I just got a text form an old friend that I know just hates anything Smartphone, so if he is willing to texts than it must be catching on with us old folk! Right Barry? LOL.
Firefox: I have always use private browser mode in Firefox but I have learned about an extension Mult-Account Containers that I like even better than private tabs. The extension seems to isolate tabs better when putting tabs in their own container. One of the best things about this is that I can log into both my google accounts and both my Flickr accounts all at the same time and they can’t see each other on Firefox. Helpful when you want to make different setting to like accounts 🙂
Internet: Over the last few months I have had lots of problems with Verizon internet service, I think maybe they have overloaded they network since they have push so hard with they new unlimited plan. Like most big businesses they like to get the customers but hate to do the services, (money for as little effect as possible).
Exercise: I have kept up with my exercise, doing five days a week and taking two off, but I have put on a good amount of weight over the last year and it is making it hard. I’ll keep pushing!
Friends: I have 3 folks in the area that I know from last year. Good to have folks around that you know.
Just a few lines to say hello to everyone. I am just chilling out and not doing much of anything, Photo wise, exercise or even going place, I guess I am just stored up for the winter. I kind of did the same thing about this time last year too.
The Weather has been kind of rainy for the area, as it is even rainy today. It seems to me to be wetter this year, could just be me. The rain hurts my bones “says the old dude” I like the dry weather but I sure appreciate rain holding down the dust.
I hope everyone’s holidays are going well.
Happy New Years Folks 🙂
Peeking out: I am peeking out now …. looking around ….. is it over? Is it safe to come out now? Is it time to start a new year? I did so good right up till the end, LOL. Some years me and the holidays ain’t the best of friends other years not so bad, I never know till they come. Never-no-matter, I hope that everyone else had a great and fun Holiday and I hope the New Year brings all the things you wish for.
As for me, the things I need to do this new year is get back on a better diet, start back exercising, get the camera busy and get my blog going again. All these things keep me busy and content most of the time, I hope they still will.
I am still looking at Lens for my camera and I am still looking at computers but I’m not buying any, just yet. Still got my eye on the 100-400 canon L and am still thinking on the Apple computer. I seen the 100-400 L as low as $1500 refurbished this year (I missed the deal) and I find it hard to up more money once I’ve seen a good deal and that may not come again till next year. The new price will come down a little more too, maybe this year coming. I’ll keep watching.
On the computer side, if I am going to put the cost of a high-end Apple computer into a computer I want one with high standards and newer connections because I plan on keeping that computer for a long time. The thing I want to see in my next new computer is the Thunderbolt 3 Standard with C type connectors which I think will become a standard pretty quick once it starts getting out there because it will be a kind of catch-all connector. I am near sure PC will go that way, …. and Apple …. well we’ll see. Thunderbolt 3 and C-connector are different things but can and will more than likely be joined, and Intel is doing that. The only computer out with that just yet that I know of, is the Dell computers. The good thing about Thunderbolt 3 is that it is very fast and when combined with the C-connector is compatible with about everything up to this point, USB 2, USB 3, USB 3.1 and the very fast Thunderbolt 3. Adapters from C type to USB should come soon after the C-connectors start hitting the market. Of course when using a slower USB device you will only get the speed that the device will offer but it will connect. Now all that being said this is just what “I” think is going to come to be and it may …. or it may not!
I have given a lot of thinking to the Apple computers and the latest iMac sure looks nice. It would be a lot lower powered then the desktop that I have now (good for me on solar) and is a fine-looking Machine for sure with the most updated specs Apple has for now. I am hoping that maybe the next Macbook Pro will have some big updates and maybe that will pull me into the Mac world. I don’t much buy a computer for now but for the future and at that cost it will have to be into the future a ways!
I take a long time on things like this because I am kind of stuck with whatever it is that I get, seeing as I don’t much have that kind of money to change my mind later on! I am sure that maybe some of you, like most people, have been in the place where you are paying for something that you wish you didn’t have but still have to pay for it …. I don’t want to be there!
