On Delicious.

I found it confusing. On my Computer at home, I have flagged favorites, but I found delicious difficult to try and navigate. If I flagged what I wanted, about 75% of the time, something else came up. The same with some of the rss feeds, I have tried to link my rss feeds, so that they all come to the same spot, but unfortunately, they go everyplace but. Some have even wound up on the branch's desktop or owa account, instead of my google or yahoo account.

But I did manage to get I can Cheeseburger to go to rss feeds, and in my google account at that. The humerous LOL cats are to be believed or not, your choice, but many that I have viewed, remind me too much of my siamese and my tortoishell at home. A few remind me of the cats that I had when I was younger. I have not found one that is as funny, for the dog lover in me. though, does anybody else have an Idea of where I should look.

Also, I had watched the Snowball Videos. They are fantastic. Also, review the news program and the investigative testing done, to show that the bird is really differentiating between the tempos/beats etc. It was a fascinating, instructive video. I highly recommed that all, watch that video.

Their are days, when I wish my son or my cats were as easily trained or entertained. ( My son is now 36 1/2 years old)

Recycling Junk

Hey, I was checking in our copy of Sierra Magazine and when I was putting in a tattle tape signal, I came across the article; "Message in a Bottle"it starts on page 44 in the May/June 2009 issue. The kicker is the article on pages 50 and 51. Read it; as it will really make you think.

What else can we: reduce, reuse or recycle, so that it does not end up where this article placed it.

Hey, I found out that I could actually transfer some of my photos from my flickr account directly to this blog. It made transfering some of the photo stream that I uploaded a hole lot easier. I was trying to figure out how to transfer some of the photos. You just have to Blog each photo. I haven't figured out how to transfer multiple shots yets. But, I will keep playing.

This is shot down into the open blossom of a tulip. It does not look like a tulip from this angle.

I hope that you enjoy this shot, as much as I and my family has.

moon rise ?

Isn't this shot of the moon beautiful?

Clouds about 45 minutes out of Denver

I am not sure that this photo is as good as the photo of Mono Lake, but I hope that you like it.


I was going through the 27 things and I guess I got a little ahead of myself. I posted a humorous video address on one of my blogs, called too much time, about extreme sheep herding. Is Good and entertaining. Also had downloaded e-book "A Civil Campaign" by Lois Mc Master Bujold to my mp3 player to listen to while flying to Minnesota. But I did have fun doing it.

Have also uploaded to flicker approximately 60 photos from my trip to Minnesota. A lot of them are cloud shots and they are labeled.

go to and check "booksbyme" photo stream to see some of the photos I took. Check out Moonrise? photos too, taken about 4:00 CA Time at 37 thousand feet between Denver and Minneapolis.

Ft. Snelling National Cemetary

This is taken in one of the "Commital Shelters" The Honor Guard was standing right behind me when this was taken, I had already received the Flag, the three shells from the 21 gun salute that was fired in his honor and the thanks of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Dad always said that he wanted to go out of this world in a pine box. His wishes were to be cremated. But we were still able to honor his request.

This monument is in honor of all of the Ex Prisoners of War.

This Monument is hard to read but it is Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.

This flag is at half mast in honor of the Military Personal that are buried Their. It is located on the main drive and is in front of the information office.

This Cemetary is a National Cemetary and is used by Veterans and their Families from the surrounding states. Dad had had the distinction of enlisting during WWII from this Base, and was Discharged at the end of his time of service also from this base. It is fitting that he be buried here.

My Sister let me borrow her "BOOK"

Built-in Orderly Organized Knowledge Device
by Marielle Cartier
Executive Director, Alliance for Canada's Audio-Visual Heritage

The "BOOK" is a revolutionary breakthrough in technology: no wires, no electric circuits, no batteries, nothing to be connected or switched on. It's so easy to use even a child can operate it. Just lift its cover! Compact and portable, it can be used anywhere--even sitting in an armchair by the fire--yet it is powerful enough to hold as much information as a CD-ROM disc. Here's how it works ... Each BOOK is constructed of sequentially numbered sheets of paper (recyclable) , each capable of holding thousands of bits of information. These pages are locked together with a custom-fit device called a binder which keeps the sheets in their correct sequence. Opaque Paper Technology (OPT) allows manufacturers to use both sides of the sheet, doubling the information density and cutting costs in half. Experts are divided on the prospects for further increases in information density; for now BOOKs with more information simply use more pages. This makes them thicker and harder to carry, and has drawn some criticism from the mobile computing crowd. Each sheet is scanned optically, registering information directly into your brain. A flick of the finger takes you to the next sheet. The BOOK may be taken up at any time and used by merely opening it. The BOOK never crashes and never needs rebooting, though like other display devices it can become unusable if dropped overboard. The "browse" feature allows you to move instantly to any sheet, and move forward or backward as you wish. Many come with an "index" feature, which pinpoints the exact location of any selected information for instant retrieval. An optional "BOOKmark" accessory allows you to open the BOOK to the exact place you left it in a previous session--even if the BOOK has been closed. BOOKmarks fit universal design standards; thus, a single BOOKmark can be used in BOOKs by various manufacturers. Conversely, numerous bookmarkers can be used in a single BOOK if the user wants to store numerous views at once. The number is limited only by the number of pages in the BOOK. The media is ideal for long-term archive use. Several field trials have proven that the media will still be readable in several centuries, and because of its simple user interface it will be compatible with future reading devices. You can also make personal notes next to BOOK text entries with an optional programming tool, the Portable Erasable Nib Cryptic Intercommunication Language Stylus (Pencils). Portable, durable, and affordable, the BOOK is being hailed as the entertainment wave of the future. The BOOK's appeal seems so certain that thousands of content creators have committed to the platform. Look for a flood of new titles soon.

Way too much time on your hands

Check out this You Tube Video.

Go to you tube and search for "Extreme Sheep herding" These gentlemen in Wales had too much fun, too much time on their hands. Their is no way that they could have done the work that they did with too much ale in them.

Enjoy it as much as I did.

I hope that I can photograph something like this on my trip to Minnesota. This was taken in February at about 33 thousand feet over Mono Lake. This is according to the pilot on the flight.
