For more than a year, I’ve been shooting sports photos using a monopod that’s too short. I didn’t complain because I got it for free from a friend who replaced it with a more expensive monopod. But we decided to get a taller one this year, since I either have to stoop with mine, or[…]

In my fatigue, when I blogged last night, I forgot to mention that the trip to Ponca City was entirely funded by my parents as birthday presents to Marline and I. They paid for the gas, the entrance to the Marland Mansion, and for our lunch at Blue Moon Cafe (in Ponca City) and for[…]

A Happy Day

Thanks to Richard and Cassie for the birthday comments, and to all the others who either emailed, called, or left notes on Facebook (which I’ll soon discontinue using). Marline and I had happy birthdays. Friday (her birthday) was a little busy, but she got the presents she wanted. On Saturday, we went with my parents[…]

The song says “tomorrow is just a day away.” Right now, though, it’s only a few minutes away. And in New York, tomorrow has already started. (The same goes for Europe, and everything else that’s east of here.) And tomorrow — Sept. 19, 2008 — my wife will turn 27. The following day, I’ll be[…]

I got to ride a Segway HT (human transporter) the other day. No, there are no pictures of me doing it. But I got a few shots of other people riding it. My friend Steve Boots brought his two Segways to my office, where my publisher and managing editor rode the vehicles. My experience on[…]

Artic Ice Doing Just Fine

The BBC reported today that the ice in the Artic failed to shrink to a smaller level than last year’s numbers. According to the article, 2007 set the record for least amount of ice (since records have been kept; only 30 years). Of course, the “global warming” scientists didn’t fall for the evidence. One said,[…]

Low Bills and Illegal Behavior

Don’t let the title fool you; this post is about two separate subjects. 1. Low Bills Marline and I have been enjoying very low electric bills, thanks in part to our smoky neighbor (mentioned previously). Since we’ve refused to fill our apartment with the strange and varied odors coming from our neighbor’s intake vents, that[…]

Football Season

Sorry it’s been so long since my last post. For the last two weeks of August, I was working day and night on the “2008 Seminole County Football Preview,” which is a detailed preview of all six county high school football teams. Exhausting. Marline helped me quite a bit. But it’s over now. Football season[…]
