Lunch on the web

Still trying to find work a rounds for the new Blogger problems. I really like using Picasa, but not being able to post from Picasa is rough.

I am finding more that I like about Windows Live Writer (it's another Beta) (and it posts to Beta, too). It also seems to have some pretty nice picture formatting abilities. And a spell checker that appears to reach out to word's dictionary. Actually I'm using it here and on the preceeding post about Fred's Cards.

I see Doug is still on the B+W run of images.  Looking Good...I like this quote:

Photography is a window into two worlds: The one that is and the one that we see. The two are not always the same.

Is this a good photograph? That depends on your point of view. I like it and that's the point of view that counts most to me.

Fred has a new product coming out...Wander on over and check out the images. 

Fish or Cut Bait, the old saying goes.

Well, I suppose I'm about to cast my line out and let it drop below the surface and see if there are any fishies about. That might be YOU!

I'm hoping here in this first effort to offer notecards to offer a high-quality product for a price that will serve the chief purpose of sharing my photographic passion with my blog readers, showing some favorite scenes to those would travel vicariously with me on a very local field trip around Goose Creek and Floyd County, and perhaps in some upcoming sets, introduce Slow Road Home readers to the actual images that either inspired a passage in Slow Road Home, or resulted after the words were on the page as a way of illustrating the narrative.

Wednesday Morning Coffee Muse

The north wind is whistling around the window frame as I sit at the kitchen table having my coffee and reading my email this morning. They were saying last night that this is a Pacific Cold front. I guess I should probably turn the AC off as this is more than likely the warmest it will get today and the outside temp just matched the inside temp...This place is just way too warm for this time of year.


I just love Rob Brezsny's horoscopes, this was in today's email...

Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
Goose bumps and burning sensations coursed through me as I meditated on your upcoming adventures. From what I can tell, your rambles will be both spooky and fulfilling. They'll knock you on your ass and lift your spirits, sometimes at the same time. They'll give you almost more blessings than you can handle, even as they invite you to take on responsibilities that will give you the chance to be a hero. Are you ready to have your certainties challenged in the most useful ways possible?

Nothing in the news catches my eye this morning. So I think I'll go ahead an close this out...I am still having issues with Blogger Beta but work arounds are being found. I like the formatting of BlogJet but can't get it to post to Blogger Beta so I am running it cutting out the code and pasting it into Windows Live Writer for posting. Live writer has a plug-in for Flickr that let's you browse your Flickr account (or any other) and place the picture code into your post...I like. If it just had a browser button or right click menu command for capture like BlogJet I would be a happy camper. Since everyone seems to be in software beta mode maybe something will shake out in the near future to make these posts easier.


Today's Photo

From this past weekend.



Fulton Mansion State Historic Structure is on Fulton Beach Road three miles north of Rockport. The three-story, Second Empire house was built by George W. Fulton, Sr.,qv rancher and businessman; he lived there from 1877 to 1893. The unusual house features innovative heating, ventilating, and food-preservation systems. It remained in private hands until 1976, when the state purchased the 2.3-acre site. The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975 and was restored in 1983. It is maintained as a museum by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.qv
