VARIOUS PICS FROM CELL PHONE CAMERA WITH ‘VIGNETTE’ APP:

These images were all taken with the HTC EVO 4G with the Vignette camera app. It makes the camera phone more fun to use… I was just experimenting and thought I’d share…


Mariann at the bar last night is some filter mode I forgot…


My workspace in Diana mode 16×9…


Some of the crap on my cube wall at SCIC…


Twenty minutes after taking a picture of Crevice Kitty, I am at the last light before arriving at work… This is one of the oversaturated filters…


Mariann this morning sleeping with Crevice Kitty tucked right into her legs… Crevice Kitty is otherwise known as Ella and she loves getting into warm crevices…


Mariann in the mirror at the bar with baby eating dinosaur…


Tin ceiling with lights and you can also see where the two taps are located. I recently added the second tap and it is nice to have two different brews available!


Bar with tap heads in wall…


Bar area in faded print…

YARBZ POOL UP AND RUNNING JUST IN TIME FOR THE FOURTH OF JULY HOLIDAY WEEKEND!


We worked hard to get the area cleaned up yesterday. I took a vacation day as did Mariann and we spent the hours from 0700 to 1730 putting in back in order. The flower boxes at the back side of the pool will be filled this evening and the bushes still need some trimming but we’re ready for swimming. The weather has been so good for the pool this year I hope it continues. When we pour the concrete, the decking will come out. We may not get to the concrete untill 2011. We’ve got to pay off the liner first… Cheers and stop by if you’re in the area.

TESTING THIS BLURB APPLICATION FOR BOOK PREVIEWS. THIS ONE IS MY TRAVELS TO SPAIN IN OCTOBER 2007

This book was made shortly after we arrived home in late October 2007 and is chronologically organized covering all aspects of our trip beginning at our home with the stuff we packed. It goes through the airport and travel phases and finally into Spain. We arrived in Madrid in the morning dog tired from too many hours of travel and had to navigate using Spanish language signs through Madrid’s Barajas Airport to the rail line to the subway and then to the high-speed train from Madrid to Toledo where we have booked our first night.

The photos will show how tired we were. All through the rail portion of the first day, we were totally beat and on edge. Once we arrived in Toledo and checked in, we had been up close to 24 hours. We decided to stay up until 9 PM so we could sync up with the local time. We ended up wondering around the streets of the old city for hours, climbing and descending the steep stone streets before finally ending up at a restaurant & bar across the street from our hotel. We ate jamon and drank Spanish beer and wine until we collapsed into our room at 9 pm. There was an open air ‘rock’ concert in the Plaza de Toros which reverberated around the city that night and actually helped us fall asleep with the cool breeze falling into the bedroom from the ancient open window of our room above the stone courtyard of the hotel and apartments. Enjoy if this www.blurb.com widget works well enough.

This book was preliminary and I am looking to re-publish with tighter editing. Cheers, Yarbz

POOTER SATCHMO DIAGNOSED WITH MALIGNANT TUMOR ON HIS TONGUE :-(

We just got back from the vet and Satchmo has cancer. We will probably have to send him off on a kitty journey in three or so weeks… Sad news… He is a good pooter. We figure he is about 15 to 16 years old…

Here is a pic of pooter Satchmo from 2001:
