Atlantic City Water Show 2006

Mystic Seaport Revisited

Hi Everyone,

Here is a rather old video (1994) from a side trip to Mystic Seaport, CT taken on a vacation in New England fourteen years ago.
The video was shot with a Hi 8 video camera onto Hi 8 tape. Ten years later it was copied onto DV tape and captured into a Power Mac. Then it was edited in Final Cut Express and recorded onto a DVD in iDVD. And then, it was ... blah. blah, blah.

Enjoy the show.

Some Sunsets

Hi Everybody,

Enough of cloudy gloom! Time for some color. Here are a few photos of our beautiful sunsets. Enjoy!

Photo One was taken on March 10, 2001.
Photo Two -- March 24, 2001.

Photo Three -- November 9, 2001.


Hi Friends,

The calendar says that spring arrived well over two weeks ago, but for much of the nation, it feels like it hasn't. Surroundings still look pretty bleak as flowers struggle to break through the soil. Oh, the birds are here chirping away like they always do in early April, oblivious to the cold, wind, and rain while they search for building materials to construct their homes in which to raise their soon-to-be families. Old man winter, though, just does not want to give up, or is it give in. Our forecast for the upcoming weekend is rain again, while next week is going to be colder than normal. How I hate to hear that. The birds may be cheerful, but all this cold, wind, and rain is getting to me.

I had planned to post some sunset photos, but since we haven't had an actual sunset in a few days, I changed my mind and decided to show you these photos of clouds instead. They are old, but they are still interesting -- kind of like a lot of people I know.

The first three photos were taken on June 24, 1997. The clouds seemingly just appeared in the sky, and in no time they were gone, the sky returning to it's regular self.

The fourth photo was taken on November 26, 2002. Can you see the face in the clouds? (lower center)
He seems to be laughing at us.

The last photo is from September 4, 2004. This strange cloud formation was the result of our regional nuclear power plant.
Makes you wonder.

Hi Everybody and Welcome

Hello Everyone and Welcome to My Blog!

You may already know me. I am Koobie's Mom. Sometimes I'm known as Zhaba, but that's another story.

While I don't expect to have a blog as busy as Koobie's, I will put photos, slideshows, or videos here that Koobuss is not interested in and therefore have no chance at all of appearing on her blog.

We have beautiful sunsets here. I will share many of my sunset photos with you. This one was taken on March 24, 2008, from the steps of our front porch.
