This is the place to keep up with all the happenings here at any given moment. This where I can keep everyone updated & informed of all that is new and news with the family. There is the random stuff generated by various sources that have appealed to me, amusing bits, and thing that sometimes tick me off. It depends on the day – it runs the gamut in content. Be prepared for a surprise everyday. Thanks for joining me on the journey.
I am beginning to think that something out there doesn't want me to have a ring made by Le Vian. Today, I tapped my hand/ring against a counter at work and half of the ring went flying across the kitchen! Definitely NOT what I was expecting to happen. Upon a close examination I found that one of the butterflies had sheared off at the base where it connected to the main part of the ring.
I dropped it by Jared this evening on the way home and we're not even bothering to try to have it repaired. Store credit here I come. I'll be shopping for something else when I have a better day to do it. They did tell me that they had never seen a Le Vian piece have a problem and here I have had two in less than 6 months.
I have been so bad with my blog post of late. So many excuses for where the time has gone between them. Work, school, family, holidays and just plain ole not having anything exciting to report.
Let's see since the last real posting, I've begun my final module for school, which is photography. Since deciding to finish out my program with the photography module, I have picked up a new camera (Canon Rebel T2i) which is much better suited for use than just a point and shoot for the class. It is pretty hard to learn anything about photographing using the .raw format when all you've got to work with is .jpg.
I've already begun utilizing what I've learned during my course work to improve my overall photography. Even managing to do some head shots for a dancer.
Walt & I had a great Christmas party at the house the middle of December. Which was an awesome success! Looking forward to our next get together at the house for the Super Bowl. I spent Christmas Eve at Mom & Dad's house and part of Christmas Day at Barbara & Jimmy's house.
Mom & I attended Christmas with the Richmond Pops the week before Christmas. We both took loads of pictures.
I did have a three-day weekend for Christmas and New Years. Took a bunch of pictures and spent the extra time working on editing them. It fun getting out and taking a series of images from a new perspective.
The New Year
Here we are with January almost gone and February just around the corner. Where does the time go? Time to finally gather up all the remnants of Christmas and get them back into the proper boxes and back into the attic.
I need to get myself a packing list together for an upcoming trip. There will be loads of pictures after I return.
Dr. Michael Goldberg's just released "What the Tooth Fairy Didn't Tell You, The Wise Consumer's Guide to Dentistry in the Big Apple" explain the ins and outs of dental health. The stories and pictures will inspire and educate. The book is a guide to enable you to make health-saving, money-saving, pain-saving and time-saving choices. Although his book focuses on the New York City area, it is an invaluable resource for anyone who has a mouth, anywhere.
Proceeds from this book will go to support the DVI (Dental Volunteers for Israel), Trudi Birger Free Children's Dental Clinic in Jerusalem. Healing mouths is a worthy goal but Dr. Goldberg tries to heal the World by volunteering in a clinic where Christians, Muslims and Jews, children and dentist alike, routinely interact towards a common goal...getting and staying healthy.
