OK, just a few more words about my data backups. Last week I ordered a few Army Surplus, 30 Caliber Ammo Cans, they arrived today. What the heck are these for, you ask? Well I thought they could make a great way to transport and store the hard drives I'm going to be rotating off-site. So … Continue reading Ammo and… backups?
David has accumulated plenty of coats and jackets, the the point that it seems like they're everywhere. Last weekend I thought it would be fun to make something to hang them from. Well, since David enjoys hippos.... I started off drawing the little guy in PhotoShop Elements with my tablet... (wow, enough dust in there? … Continue reading Hippo Comes to Life

I started last night first dying the muslin solid yellow. Then I tied it into ball and dyed it tan, producing a … Continue reading 11 Months Old
A couple of months ago I purchased a Terk XM6 XM Radio Antenna because the reception I have been getting in the office has been poor and unpredictable. Due to some procrastination, the new antenna has been sitting in its packaging waiting to be installed ever since. Until today. This morning I decided it was … Continue reading Heights and XM Radio
Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to the Shoo-sponsored blogger Photowalk in Washington Park on Saturday, although it sounded like a lot of fun. Maybe next time 😦 However, this afternoon I was able to sneak out for a few minutes to capture a barn here in Springfield (off of Veteran's Parkway) that I've … Continue reading Some Cool Barn
