On a Roll

A Bagel Roll that is...

A Few Observations

I thought things would not be quite as busy as they have turned out to be. Funny how that works. 


In the department of "it's back again"...

I've been seeing quite a number of "how to blog" posts linked lately.  I find them amusing.  Then again I have never aspired to be a blogger with a huge audience so what do I know.  But what the heck I might as well jump in with useful advice! To that end, here are my rules: 

1. Start a blog.

2. Write when possible. 

That's it. 

No.  Nothing else.  

Really. 

Everything else is silly. For every rule about what to write and how to write it, you'll find a dozen popular blogs that break it.  So if you want to blog - then get a blog and write one.  Blog platforms are free. Until you do those two things you will never be a blogger successful or not.  

The end.

Every few once in a while some Indian (as in the country of India) gurus of some sort come to a hotel near my Starbucks. Not sure what they are in town to do. However, when they are in town, a bunch of Americans, mostly women, turn up at Starbucks for coffee dressed in white linen stuff - mostly sari type of dress, but there are some pants too.  

They look silly.  

If they were of Indian descent it wouldn't look silly, it would look natural.  But they look like Americans who are trying to be something they aren't in exactly the wrong place. It's good for a giggle though. 

****

Looks like Google finally managed to lure people into one of their social network schemes.  Just tell people that invitations are limited... that's all it takes. No matter what your terms of service, people will beat down the door to get in.  

Yes I'm in.  No I haven't posted anything except a few comments.  I don't have time for this. 

****

We have a bumper crop of mosquitos and other flying insects this year.  Not sure why.  It's nearly impossible to go outside even on nice days because of the swarms.  I want to find one of those old insect foggers that used to drive through our neighborhood when I was a kid.. I want to fog the little suckers until they are all dead.  Or at least keep them away from my ears!  

***

That's all I've got for tonight.  I do have pics, but no time to go through them and get them posted.  We shall see, maybe by midweek.

Where's My Extra Hours?

I have posted a few pics from my weekend over at my Posterous site.  I hope to get a few more up over here this week.  


I rented another lens from Lensprotogo.com.  I think it worked out beautifully.  The Nikon 18-200 DX lens which suits my camera.  For an everyday walking around lens this is the one I want.  I really loved the 28-300 I rented a few weeks ago, but it's heavy and my camera can't take full advantage of it. (*sigh*)  So, I think I'll be buying this one.  I'd love to rent the D700 and the 28-300 lens sometime, but that's a bit pricy so I guess I won't.  

No sailing this last weekend. Most of Boston Harbor was closed to traffic for Extreme Sail Racing.  If there had been some really good wind we probably would have made the trek down to the city.  But, without having a place of our own to use as a base down there and not wanting to get a hotel room, we decided to give it a miss.  The weather was warmish (mid to high 80's) the winds were light and lots of people head to the city for fireworks.  

Now it's back to work for me and maybe I'll even get to my feed reader!  Hope everyone had a great long weekend.

A Happy Fourth of July to All

Rather than double posting, I will simply say go here.

Enjoy the day!
