I’ve always been of the opinion that upsetting the status quo can be a really good thing. Lots of other people don’t share my way of thinking.
Tesla is a classic example. This company has turned the automotive industry on its head. And when the status quo is upset, the people who start losing money start screaming.
There are over… Continue reading
We frequently walk along the breakwater in the evenings after dinner out. It’s our “us” time—a quiet time in a beautiful area, frequently all alone with the gentle surf, the clanking tack of the sailboats, the barking seals and the caws of the seagulls. Sometimes we get to hear the fog horns in the area as well.
This particular walk… Continue reading
Today I was out shooting video and got fried alive.
Can you believe?! I get burned in the cool breeze off the ocean on a completely overcast day?!
When will I learn?!
Here are two pictures from the day…
One good thing from the day (actually this was a wonderful day all around), over 20,000 steps… Continue reading
Oh, we need these out here in California! I would love one for an in town getaway when I needed to gain back my sense of balance!
I wish I had known about these when I was in Holland. I would have made an effort to tour one! But this video is the next best thing:
And… Continue reading
For some inexplicable reason, I’ve considered this Canon lens as a portrait lens. Not until yesterday did I decide to take it out and push it around in the wild. The lens is amazing—offering a huge range of possibilities. The images, though you will not be able to notice from these small JPEGs, are super clean and spot on sharp.… Continue reading
That’s what we say in the south when we’re about to do something.
I’m fixin’ to go on a video shooting spree—shooting video (with a camera) of everything I can in the bay area.
In preparation for this adventure, I’ve been doing some test shots with my 3 cameras: the GoPro, iPhone, and Canon 5Dmk2. I would prefer to travel… Continue reading
Maybe it’s been over a year now since I first started reading Fred Clark over at the patheos blog. Fred has both challenged and informed my thinking with his thoughtful words. His faith appears real and practical to him. His insight is illuminating. His writing always gives me a moment’s pause for reflection. I value Fred Clark‘s contribution to my… Continue reading
We are in a quandary: which car do we replace with the Tesla S 85 (which arrives April 22nd, the day after Earth Day)??
the Nissan Leaf (which we love but only has an effective range of 60 – 80 miles in these hills, which, by the way, is perfectly adequate for 95% of all of our daily driving needs)?… Continue reading
The entrance to the north bay is through the “Golden Gate” under the Golden Gate Bridge. The area was once owned by the military but was given to the National Park Service in the 1970’s I think. Today, it’s commonly referred to as the Headlands, over 66,000 acres of gorgeous, undeveloped wilderness. I rather enjoy roaming around out here.
Sunday,… Continue reading
When the way you have chosen to live your life is based in hatred, selfishness, arrogance, and deliberate insensitivity to people who are suffering, the way Fred Phelps life was, the world would have been a better place without you. (The unrepentant war criminals of the George W. Bush administration belong on that list too!)
Tonight, without Phelps, the world… Continue reading
