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

This whole article by Mark Sandlin on “The War on Christmas“ is brilliant and needs to be shared! I encourage you to take the time to read it.
But today, our stories [of Christmas] are told from places and positions of power. Today, Christianity is the dominant culture. So, instead of story of a olive skinned middle-eastern, unwed, pregnant mother,… Continue reading
Lots of wonderful seasons greetings: family newsletters, cards, photos. Some were very clever and cute. I especially liked the postcard with nothings but 4 pictures across, each of the four girls up in the air (had jumped on the trampoline) holding a sign: “Merry,” “Christmas,” “Happy,” “New Year!” Their hair was flying, and it just looked crazy fun.

Little do the tiny preci know: this year’s Haunted House will even be more terrifying than last year’s!… Continue reading
For years now, I have been a huge fan of Vlad Gerasimov’s work at Vladstudio, @vladstudio, where this Russian digital artist shares desktop designs, e-cards, apps and games, and much more that are brilliantly creative and beautiful. He provides each of his nearly 700 desktops in virtually every imaginable size one would ever need (over 60!!), for single monitors, double… Continue reading
Tonight I ate at one of the regular restaurants in my rotation. It was chilly (and extremely windy) eating out on the patio, but nonetheless, many of the tables were taken. Being Mother’s Day, they were unusually busy.
After having ordered, across the restaurant I heard a patron complaining rather loudly and angrily that he and his party had been… Continue reading
I see that the old fashioned heart-shaped valentine’s candies with messages on them have a new message: “Tweet Me!”… Continue reading
