Oh, The Thrill of It All!

CleaningYou know how it goes: Small things break, get messed up, or otherwise need a bit of attention. But they aren’t that important in the moment. You think, “I’ll fix it when I get around to it.”

Well, over the past year or two or three, little things on my blog, small yet annoying things, have broken and needed a … Continue reading

No. No More. I’m Fed Up!

Instagram Logo with Facebook's Zuckerberg's Face

I loathe corporate America trying to own American culture. But I double loathe it when they try to own my contributions to culture and do not allow me to opt out!

I will not have it.

I’ve been a huge fan of Instagram, ever since it first arrived on the tech scene. I love that app. You have … Continue reading

Want to stylize your photos?

Yesterday I frothed at the mouth over kitCam, which is both a photo and a video app with numerous sharing possibilities including FTP. kitCam introduced me to PhotoForge2, which allows further manipulation of the photos.

Gated Entry

After 2 days of fog, I shot this with my little iPhone up at Cavallo Point this afternoon. The walk up the steep hill in the gutsy, gusty, cool breeze/wind was tremendously invigorating. I absolutely feast on the cool air from the Pacific Ocean. The beauty of the bay area just feeds my soul.

Near Death Experience

Sunrise over San Francisco BayAfter having a consistently horrible week last week dealing with the ongoing frustrations of non-functional technology and the lack of closure on several essential, never-ending, home projects that have become non-productive time pits, I decided that at least half of today would be dedicated to being nice to Tim. My stress level last week was just outrageously through the roof. … Continue reading

Romping Around the Headlands

Today we walked almost 5 miles around the Marin Headlands, 65,000 acres of undisturbed coastal headlands along the Pacific Ocean. In the 1960s, a developer purchased a significant plot of this land to develop it into subdivisions. Fortunately, his efforts were stopped, and the area is today part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It’s simply … Continue reading
