I'm really tired now, but it is a good tired. There's nothing like a feeling of accomplishment to make the hard work seem worth it..... sooo true Allan!!!

Office Space

It was a beautiful, sunny day here in Kentucky. A one day respite from the clouds. The forecast calls for snow this weekend, so we were determined to get out and enjoy the day.

My sister had called last night to invite us to meet her for lunch today, and to ask for our help in finalizing the configuration of her new computer.

So after lunch we headed to her house (just a few blocks from the café where we dined). There wasn't much left to do. The new laptop came loaded with a three month trial of Microsoft Office, a suite of programs which she uses for her business. She could not find the registration key to activate it.

After a bit of searching, it was found and the trial activated. Since she can't do without it, we went ahead and upgraded it to the full Standard Edition.

Once it was all set up, I then exported her contacts from an old computer and imported them into the new setup. I also configured her email so Outlook would poll her mail server.

Before we left, I took this photo. Her workspace is a lot less cluttered than it was before she bought this new computer. Before, she had a monitor, keyboard, mouse and mousepad, and way too many cables connecting everything together. Those cables also snaked down below the desk to the huge tower case that held the CPU and all the drives.

She had been considering an expensive remodeling of the office to make it more efficient, but know she is reconsidering, since the area is much roomier and comfortable to use.

After we left her place, we stopped by home for a bit, then grabbed our cameras and headed out into the surrounding countryside for some sightseeing. I took Alison to see parts of Central Kentucky she had yet to see. We drove down to Boone Creek (named after Daniel Boone who established Fort Boonesborough near it).

I wish we could have gotten some photos while down there, but Grimes Mill Road, across which we drove was very narrow and winding, and there were no places to pull off that weren't private property.

We'll head back out there again soon, and see if there is a different approach we can take to that part of the creek where we can stop for photos.

Time to close. I'm hungry, and we have some Greek food for dinner this evening.
ebilflindas 11 years ago
Kentucky?
Why did I have it in my mind that y'all were somewhere like Mendocino County, California? Your sister's lucky to have you close by for technical support. My mom's too far for me to help--though she'd probably drive me nuts, too! ;)

Wow... you bring back memories of my road trip form this summer. Michael took me to Mammoth Caves... WOW!!
But I think my fav place was Louisville (sooo pretty and artsy!) and Woodford Reserve Distillery.... you ever visited? The fields are just gorgeous... and those Derby race horses and breeding farms....

Anything you recognize?? (Unfortunately my camera battery died just as I arrived to the Woodford Reserve grounds! Bummer, it was beautiful there!)

I replied to them via email:


Hi,

I saw the link to your Craigslist rant in my logs. If you have a problem with me, why did you not contact me directly?

A couple of folks visited my blog from the link, but none of them had anything to say. Apparently they are okay with my content.

If you don't like it, just don't read it.

Take care.

In Her Icy Grip

This is what I awoke to this morning. This is my new worry. Ice.

The last ice storm we had here was four years ago. It was called a 'storm of the century'. It crippled the city for weeks. The cleanup after the storm took almost a year.

I lived for 4 days without electricity or heat. Many people did not get their electricity restored for up to three weeks.

It was awful. A nightmare.

Our forecast originally called for snow overnight. Snow I can live with. But before going to bed at 1:30 this morning, I looked outside and saw that it was raining. I also noted that the temperature was 30ºF/-1.1ºC.

I turned on the weather radio to hear the new warnings of freezing rain. It's a wonder that I slept at all. But I did.

The forecast claims the rain will end by noon and that the temperature will rise above freezing.

I hope they are right.

For me, ice storms on a weekend are good excuses to have lazy sundays!

Are things expected to warm up for part of the country in the next day?

i'm late jumping in on the organizing chat -- but just a comment (msspider...)trust me, the time you save by being organized from looking for things is well worth the effort -- take it from someone who has a TON of stuff and knows where everything is.... well except for this stupid piece of software that i was hunting for for 3 weeks and then reordered yesterday and then looked up this morning and saw it in plain sight LOL

A bit o' food porn for you today.

I'm cooking dinner this evening. I decided to do a shrimp and veggie stir-fry.

The shrimp are now soaking in a marinade of soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, a dash of teriyaki sauce, garlic, and some dried red pepper flakes.

They have another hour or so to bathe.

Liquid Gold

I took this image late in the afternoon as we waited to hear from a good friend about plans to meet for dinner, I've gotten back into macro work since I built a makeshift light tent from a cardboard box and tissue paper.

The night before I took this, I ordered some new camera equipment, including a new wide-angle lens, a Nikon SB-800 flash, and a more sturdy light tent.

This got me all enthused about my macro work. So I set this up and took this photo.

As for the dinner, Alison and I met our good friend Agnes and a friend of hers for sushi at what is the oldest sushi restaurant here in Lexington, USA. Neither of us had ever eaten there. It was wonderful. The best sushi I have ever had. And it was very inexpensive.

After we dined, Agnes accompanied us to a local pub where we met up with the members of the local chapter of Drinking Liberally for drinks, fellowship, and to watch the President give his State of the Union Address.

After that, we accompanied our friend to another local watering hole that is known for having the largest number of beers in the area. This place has almost 500 different brands of beer. It's an amazing establishment.

We had a blast.

Memento of a Wild Night

This is a memento of our wild adventure on the town last night. Our friend Agnes gave me this off of her keychain after I admired it and said I would love to have one.

Like I said in my previous entry we had a blast. We were sated with great sushi and many adult beverages. It has been a long time since I have drunk that much in one evening, and though it is something I wouldn't want to do very often, I don't regret doing it last night.

Pacing myself through the evening kept me from having a hangover this morning.

i find drinking a good amount of water before going to sleep keeps the hangover at bay too.
not that i drink much often, either, mind you :)

I drank water and Diet Cokes throughout the evening, and more before I crashed. I took 2 Advil as well.

Re: your entry from the 23rd: I love macro photography although I don't too much of it myself. And I love the moment when I get a package containing new photo equipment. I really enjoy the boost that it gives me, especially if I haven't been feeling too inspired with my photography in a while.

We also have a chapter of Drinking Liberally in Ithaca and it happens to be in one of my favorite bars in town. Too bad I didn't make it for the State of the Union address. Actually, I fell asleep after the first 10 minutes of the speech.

I agree with the water before bed. It does help. Also letting your leg hang off the bed helps with bed spins. My morning cure for a hangover is a very cold chocolate milk and a bacon egg nd cheese sandwich.

I didn't have any bed spins. We got home around 2:30. Ali was in bed asleep before I had my coat off. I was quite wired, despite all the alcohol. So I stayed up to post my entry and read my email. I finally went to bed at 4:30 and woke just before 9.

A couple of mugs of strong Kona and a hot shower, and I was in pretty good shape.

I love this last photo for the photo itself, and because I love a good whiskey/bourbon/scotch. I had never heard of this one before, though, until seeing this shot--and then this morning, while leafing through last month's Wired, lo and behold, a full-page ad for the very stuff.

I think it's a sign.

The Roller Coaster From Hell

This is the only photo I took today. Actually, I took several of this object, but this was the best shot.

I call it The Roller Coaster From Hell.

Someone very close to me has been on an emotional roller coaster of late. They have a lot of anxiety inducing frustrations in their life.

I'm going along for the ride. I feel every frustration right along with them. Then I have my own batch of frustration. The frustration that comes from wanting to help, to make it all better, but being unable to do anything.

We are both at the mercy of forces outside of our control.

Faux Roe

My new photography gear arrived this afternoon. In the small box was a Nikon SB-800 Autofocus Speedlight, a Tokina 12-24mm f/4 lens, and a really cool light tent.

The box was waiting on the front porch when we arrived home from a shopping trip. I had the box open and the contents spread across the sofa in seconds.

I put the new lens on the camera and took a bunch of shots with it. Nothing worth posting yet. I think it will be best put to use on landscape shots and shots of tall structures.

But I did put the light tent and the Speedlight to use. I took several macro shots using the flash off the camera, in remote mode, illuminating the subjects of the shots through the fabric of the light tent.

I've put a couple of them on my photostream. The shot above is the best, I think.

ohh... interesting. Glass decorative pebbles? The kind you put in flower vases and such? Or are they some kind of metal?

Glass pebbles. We stopped by an arts & crafts store in town today. They had them on sale for $1US per bag.

We bought 5 bags of different colors. :)

I like the way the light in the back looks like fire.

I want to buy some of those for my babies tank, they have some transparent ones and they like to gather them in one place.

Whenever I see something in a store that is colorful, shiny, and cheap, I can't resist buying it to use as a photographic subject. I have no idea what I will do with them now that I have photographed them.

There must be some way we can use them decoratively.

That's a good question. Perhaps I should buy an aquarium?

Let me know how you like the flash as you get familiar with it!

Re: Jan. 25th... I know how difficult that is and it can be so draining. Sometimes all you can do is let the person know you're there for them. The hard part is realizing that it's only that individual that can really make a change in their life. I used to think that if I said the perfect thing I could help that person realize so-and-so. But that's not always the case - they have to be willing to accept help and that can be an amazingly frustrating thing to witness. Especially with someone you love.

Anyway, hard to articulate these things without being cliche. But I understand your copper scrubbie!

Actually, she doesn't need to change her life. The circumstances are out of her control. She is at the mercy of heartless bureaucrats. But hopefully the dam will break and the things that need to be done will get done soon.

And as for the flash. I took some shots of our cat last night in our living room, using the flash, and a macro lens. I think they turned out pretty well.

that's a good idea... or you can put them in those glass cubic vases and just use as decoration... maybe add some fresh flowers... or those pretty curly bamboo shoots!
Well.... that's what I'd use them for, but I'm a girl LOL
