Randomness...

~ on average, I store about 500 megs of photos per month. I back 'em up to cd's and leave them on the computer. This process is now very routine... considering I had lapsed in the "back up to cd" part a while ago and had a craptastrophy with a hard disk reformat, and then "recover" which only - ultimately - rescued half the data.

~ Geo and I went to future shop ... he took a look at the cd players... and thought they looked bulky. He looked at the shuffle ... and was underwhelmed in a most significant of ways. In the end...

.. a sandisk 256 meg mp3/wma player, radio, voice thingy was the answer. It was pricier than the sort I had already tried ... but it worked out of the box and he was bopping to music in moments. The voice recorded part is a "wow" factor for him... (clarity of the sound and that notion that he can put the file back on the pc to store forever... hahaha) and he likes the radio. The best part to him...was the "cool red look" of the player. :) He's happy... I'm happy. :)

~ children... lined up for a wave pool birthday party...
Note to self: Daddies get seriously worn out, keeping up with a gang of kids in wave pool.


~ my dad... as I've mentioned before... carves. There are - or so I am told - two kinds of serious wood carver... one that is playing a game of exact notions and another that is in the game of making things that are pleasing to the eye. He started by carving birds... I will dig up some bird carvings... and you will say "ooooooo" and "ahhhhh". (i mean it! anyone want a peanut?)
He recently carved, for competitions...
a) A bowl

b) Flowers...

c) and a Gardengnome!!
