IF you have broadband…

…and IF you really wondered what was in “The Book” but didn’t want to cough up the $12.40 for the PDF, or the $47.53 for the paperback, or the $60 for the hardcover, AND… ….if you have Flash installed. You might just have a treat. Since it’s a file of 77.6 MEG, however, make sure […]

A statement, and a start.

I. AM. SICK. OF. FOOD. NETWORK. Mind you, I still love the channel. But…WHY THE HELL are they running “The Next Food Network Star” marathon over and over and over and over and over (and OVER)? I. AM. OVAH. IT. We know it’s down to Amy and Rory. That’s fine. I don’t need to keep […]

Is this insanity?

Or just a case of vanity? I thought this would be a better way of showing my journey through the years. Where I was, where I’ve been, and where I’m headed.

A request.

I realized (after spending two hours getting my PC to play correctly with a hard drive) that upon reading the previous post, my real request was lost in a sea of words. Here it is again. I do have a request, however. This requires YOUR participation. Since I’ve started sharing photos of me over the […]

Photos as promised.

Remember. I’m the one with the camera. You know the photos are being taken. ‘Nuff said. (Yeah, I did take offense to the person who said “I didn’t give permission for you to print the photo of {location} in your book.” My comment then, as it is now is the same: you invited me on […]

I was very impressed with the binding and production. Lulu.com, you’ve made me very proud!

As promised…

Here’s the photos of the former Newport News Coca-Cola Bottling Plant. A real shame to see the building go downhill the way it has. But… at least I’ve got some photographic memories now!

Have a Coke and …. a wrecking ball?

When I first moved to Hampton Roads (sorry, I can’t bring myself to call it “Tidewater”) some 27 years ago, much of downtown Newport News was vacant buildings. Fast forward 27 years and much of downtown Newport News is vacant… lots. The old Sears building is gone. As is the old Leggetts. The dozen or […]

Photography Pages Updated

Since Flikr and I don’t get along (it’s that transfer limit, etc.) I’ve redone my website to focus on that aspect of my life, as well as a few other sections. Take a look. I’m still going through photos to put online. (Warning, some of the sections have several hundred thumbnails to load, and make […]
