San Diego Photos and Video

Category: Photography,Site Updates — Posted by Michael at 1236

I just posted a few albums of photos from my trip to San Diego. While out there for a week on business, I added an extra day to do some sightseeing. Even though I didn’t have a ton of free time, I managed to see much of the downtown area, tour the USS Midway, take a boat tour of the northern part of the bay and go to the amazing San Diego Zoo. I also got to spend quality time with old friends and coworkers and we ate ate incredibly well throughout the week with meals of Mexican, Italian & Thai food! I’ve also included a video of the adorable pandas at the San Diego Zoo.

The photos can viewed right here. Enjoy!

California photos posted

Category: Photography,Site Updates — Posted by Michael at 2317

Friends Central Perk setI have FINALLY taken the time to get my California photos posted on the site. It’s disgraceful that it’s taken me so long to get this done, but anyone who has seen me in person since February has probably already seen them on my iPad or at least that’s how I’m making myself feel better about taking so long!

The pictures are from my visit to with Marianne in Los Angeles County. We went to a bunch of Back to the Future filming locations plus Griffith Observatory, Warner Brothers Studios, Universal CityWalk, Long Beach, La Brea Tar Pits, the Queen Mary, Hollywood and more. Check them out here.

More photos will hopefully be coming soon. I have a LARGE selection from my trip to Michigan and some photos from the New Hope Ivyland Railroad excursion to Lansdale.

Omnibus catchup update

Category: Life — Posted by Michael at 1140

I was recently told by a someone whose opinion matters more to me than most that I don’t write in my blog enough anymore and that my weekly Twitter summaries are all that are there anymore. This post is my attempt at fixing that a little.  If you don’t like reading things that jump from topic to topic you may want to click away now! You can consider this a bit of an omnibus update focusing on what’s going on in my life instead of just random comments on world events.

I’m back from my vacation in California. I spent a little under a week in Los Angeles County with my friend Marianne who I’ve not seen nearly enough of over the past decade. Besides doing a lot of long overdue catching up, we visited Griffith Observatory, Long Beach, the La Brea Tar Pits, Hollywood, Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank and more. And of course, we visited more than a few filming locations from the Back to the Future movies. You’ll be seeing and reading more about this great trip when I eventually get my photos posted online.

After many months of spending a crazy amount of time trying to find all the various pieces for the bathroom remodel, it was finally completed a few weeks ago. All of the hours taken up by searching for the the stuff we needed for that project can now be committed to other projects. The next big one is working on digitizing the dozens of VHS home movies that have been sitting around quietly decomposing in a cabinet. I wish I’d started that project about 5 years ago, but better late than never! Now I just need to get all of the home movies on film reels converted before “vinegar syndrome” does them in!

So, there you have it. That’s what I’ve been up to, plus working on planning a vacation to Michigan later this year. Now that you’re caught up, hopefully I’ll do better at keeping up with this my blog going forward.
