New Camera….

Posted in Cameras, Features, Toys with tags , , , , , on November 30, 2007 by gingerporter

During the Black Friday shopping trip we took to Stuff Mart…I was permitted to upgrade my digital camera.  It isn’t the one I am saving for…but that will be a long time coming.

We bought the Kodak SD710, 7.2 MP with a 10x optical zoom.  It has over 20 features for taking pictures.  My favorite feature so far are the manual settings.  They allow me the feel of a 35mm SLR but with the instant gratification of the digital technology.

The manual that came with the camera was sadly lacking in instruction.  After finally doing several searches at the Kodak site I tracked down the information I needed to properly use this camera. It has such nice features but if I can’t figure them out it does me no good to have the camera.

I have been doing some experimenting with both digitals that I have.  I do like the newer one better.  What really tipped the scales for me was the fact that I could actually purchase two other lenses for this little compact camera.

Kodak offers a wide angle and telephoto lense for the Kodak SD710.  I believe the lenses are compatible with all the Kodak S series cameras.  However they cost more than what I actually paid for the camera.  It will be awhile before I sink $150/lense for this camera. Continue reading

It has been quite some time since I added any pictures so I am going to add my fish. He is actually the family fish. My husband really likes this fish. He tells guests that we have an albino piranha (Tiger Oscar actually). He thinks he is a piranha when he tries to latch onto your finger when you feed him. He will swim up towards the top of the tank and bang the lid when he wants to be fed. My husband has him trained to do this.

He has taken to pulling his plants out and knocking over his castle. He seems to like playing with them. If you put reattach them to the gravel, he just pulls them back out. He resides in a 50 gallon tank. It is approximately 2’w x 4’l x 3’d. Tiger Oscar is maybe 7″ I believe. It is really hard to measure a fish when he won’t sit still. He does seem to actually possess a personality for a fish.

He really is alot of fun to watch swim back and forth. I know Loki (my African Timneh Grey) likes to watch him.

So there you have it Caedemon, Camryn, Noah and Adrian. Caedemon enjoyed fishing in my fish tank…he was just never able to catch the fish poor guy. It is hard to believe that it has been a year all ready. I guess it is my turn to come visit you this time…….

Blue Eyed Kitten’s…..

Posted in Animals, Beauty, Uncategorized on June 6, 2007 by gingerporter

We were helping a friend move over the weekend and they recently acquired two kittens. A male and female named Tiger and Blossom. What made them so cute are the blue eyes.

I have a friend who happens to like blue eyed cats. I thought I would post these for her…….Hope you like the kittens.

This tree was planted on my husband’s Aunt’s property around 1961. It came out of a little bucket. It’s a big treeeee now.

I thought it looked like looking thru a veil.

I just figured out if I don’t bold the script…it can actually be seen and read…:)  Sorry Folks….

This picture is of a Bleeding Heart. It is on the property of my husband’s Aunt and Uncle, who live in Ohio. She was telling me that she was very surprised to see the plant growing. They had it in a pot and it had died. Apparently some of the rhizomes had fallen down in the dead tree stump and started growing.

They do like shade and come in two varieties. I will post a couple links to information on these plants. I had no idea they were so poisonous.

The Cool Ones….Son #2

Posted in Kids on April 2, 2007 by gingerporter

Son #2 not wanting to be left out……takes his turn.  The boys crack up.  Every once in awhile we will get someone stopping by the house wanting hubby to sell his car.  Of course we all know that our marriage would come to en end before that car would possibly be sold. There are some things a wife just shouldn’t come between…..and a man and his ’57 are one of them….He jokes about it….but you know….I’m not quite sure…….

This was the serious look he was aiming for…..but this was the first shot I got…..
