What’s that Clicking?

Pictures: A Juniper Titmouse and a Mocking Bird, I like it when the birds give me that look that says (Hey, what is that you are doing there?)



Exercise: I rode the bike this morning for a little over 7 miles. I added 3 more miles this afternoon so 10 miles total for today, I am happy with that! πŸ™‚

WordPress Plans: Okay …. I am a dummy 😣!!! When I looked at the cost of the WordPress plans I did not notice the price had a “MX ” before the $45.00 (Like this MX$45.00) so after a friend bringing this to my attention(Thanks Rick) …. we think this is a Mexico price in Pesos.

So for whatever reason my WordPress thinks I am in Mexico or at least gives me the price in MX$! I run a VPN but even when I disconnect from it, WordPress still gives me MX$ prices, so …. I need to figure out why. Or maybe I don’t, some folks are telling me they don’t see much in ads when looking at my blog no way.

I tried many times to find out why I am being given the price in MX$ but I have not figured it out and I cannot get it priced in US dollars when I am logged into WordPress.

So, can anyone tell me if I run it through with MX$’s on my American bank, if it will come out all right? It looks cheaper with MX$ anyways! Just wondering.

Friends: I have a friend in the area(Dale) and it was good to have someone to set out and chat with for while yesterday evening. Always good to have friends around.

Couple of Birds

Pictures: A couple shots of a Mocking bird that would not let me get too close but mocked every song it knew. The first shot is a White Crowned Sparrow.

Birding: I did not get many good shots with the camera but seen a few, Mocking Bird, White Crowned Sparrows, Saga Sparrows, Jays and Nat-catchers.

Exercise: I walk about two miles while out birding this morning.

Camera Gear: After last year’s investment I was not likely to invest in any new gear for a couple of years but I did do a little one πŸ™‚
While in Parker, AZ I met up with Martshal (Great person) who use to have some SLR gear but no longer had it but did still have one piece that he offered to me at a great price! A Cotton Carrier 635RTL Camera Vest for 1 Camera and I did buy this! Thank you so much Martshal! Martshal has a blog or two John Q. McVanGuy and Clownsville . Go give him a look!

I have been trying the Vest out on short walks but today I took it for a two mile birding walk that was about two hours in time and it was very helpful indeed! I usually don’t carry the camera with a long lens that kind of time but the vest made for a ease go with the heavy gear. I am very happy with it, especially with the deal Martshal give me πŸ™‚ As a mater of fact if I had to buy this new …. I just would not because it is costly as you can see from the link, but after using it for a while, I don’t see how I have done without it all these years! Again thank you Martshal!

Note; There are much cheaper version of this gear but I have no ideal how it compares to the real Cotton Carrier units, like the one I have.

Weather: While the rest of the country is having terrible weather it has just been beautiful here in Lake Havasu. Days in the 70 to 80 range and the nights around 50 or so, I just don’t see how it could be better. Hey, that is why I am here πŸ˜€

Exercise: Took me a short walk today and used my app MapMyWalk on the new phone and it worked swell ❗ I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.30mi, time: 54:19, pace: 23:37min/mi, speed: 2.54mi/h.
