Yes I am looking out of my room door. In a small courtyard, 4 walls do make a pool.

The drain system is very poor and whoops, the rain got very heavy.

At the door step! (the white object is a splash guard so I can have the door open)

As the storm started up again in the night. The courtyard does drain and in an hour or so the water had receded.

20170718: New Toy! Graphic creative Fun!

Print

OK, this is just to show what kind of silly “Far Out Design” abilities I have here.

A simple logo of elements or a a special wreath of some design is all possible.

I just got this and was playing around last night, I have 1000s of elements to use, or can create to use my own “special elements” in this program.

Several setting of how many times the pieces are copied around the circle too so while this is 6 sided, 4 or just 2 is possible .

 

Woman and rain shower

And yes, they can be transparently added to other images.

sorry I just happen to love the overall of this image… the idea of adding some words in the banners is just too obvious to me & the fun of these flowers in this arrangement, well I am a nature & landscape photographer!

I can not use USA courts as they have offered to “Just Kill me.”

I do have to eat & pay bills, keep equipment running.

I did create the International Space Station, no small piece of Human History…

Nope, the USA gives me nothing for my creation.

However just as I gave the USA the International Space Station to save it, so to this day do I continue to help… A Recent offer of Fresh Drinking Water for the Poor.

So if you can spare a $1 or $2, think about helping some one who did so much for the DREAMERS of the World.

20170602 Just reliving a nice memory 160.5mph! Dreamed of doing it and Then DID!

 

As a little boy, I saw Formula 1 racing as the BEST! It was about driving skill and world wide too.

It was not that NASCAR pushing and shoving while driving in circles…

Well, I always wanted to at least just once drive racing fast in an open wheel race car. 2015, Oct. I got that chance. I bought myself 2 drives of 8 minute each.

When the driver’s was held, the instructor said that the cars would only do 150mph in a single or double drive. You would have to buy a 3rd drive to go faster as the governor would set. He hear my groan and and I said I had the dream of doing at least 150mph. He quickly added that if you drove really good you could get to 153mph, but you had to be right on the sweet spot the whole time.

Well, the first 8 minutes I let myself feel into the car, what and where that sweet spot was at.

The 2nd 8 minutes I let it all hang out, it was the ‘QUALIFYING RUN!”

So you might imagine my surprise when I pick up my computer printed certificate and it said I did 160.50mph….

Yeah, I could have had fun being a real race car driver….

Enjoy this video of those 2 runs & the certificate shown at the end!

20170519: Friday Funnies!

Print

Having spent 57 years laughing at people who want to live forever & believe some religion can produce your past in a “new world that never dies so your physical body lasts for ever & ever”…

I have as far back as I can remember used the saying “Born to die.”

After all how long do you think you will like eating chocolate pudding for every meal of every day… Eternity is very long.

I will take the experiences of this life and move on!
