I must say, this is not something I normally do, but I really feel that it's something I should do now. There's a family I know from back when I was in 4-H. I've hardly had any contact with them since then, but have seen them through Facebook. And now the Mom, Leigh, who I … Continue reading Goodbye Cancer—Fundraiser
As I was going through Instagram, I thought that I should make a list of my top ten accounts to share with you. It was actually pretty hard to choose only ten, but here they are, in no particular order. 1. Paul Nicklen Paul Nicklen is the co-founder of Sea Legacy, and a contributing photographer … Continue reading Top 10 Instagram Pages (In My Opinion…)
I took a lot of photos I like this year, but this is one of my favourites. It isn't a high quality photo, being a photo of two photos. But it's the story behind the photos that means something to me. I was staying in Ooty, Tamil Nadu, India, and had gone out to a … Continue reading Tea Field Ladies
It was only about a year ago that I didn't really know what Kickstarter was.

At the moment though, I am stuck on the rewards part. Now, one of my thoughts was to do a gift bag of items from India. Some … Continue reading Can You Help Me?

I recently needed to get a new passport, as mine had expired. And to do that, I needed a new photo. I'd not had any taken recently enough to use. But I hate that passport photos cost so much. I mean, really, $15 isn't that much. But it's the principle of the thing. They charge … Continue reading DIY Passport Photo
There's a closed road just down from where I live. Well, technically, half of it is open, and the other half is privately owned. But, as we're friends with the owner, we're able to use it to more easily get from our road to the next without going the long way around. At the halfway … Continue reading Railroad Crossing, Look out For Trains
