Once I got the picture taking thing started 20 years ago, I just kept going. Thankfully, I should be a little more mobile, which is a good thing, since between the Sat-box, my PC, and Solar heating, I may have Nelly beat on heat generation.
The next photo set I blog will be from October of ’95.

Five days post-surgery, and most of the pain has subsided. Although the doctor had prescribed Oxycontin and Hydrocodone, I’ve made minimal use of them.

The first week of 2016 has not exactly gone as planned.
Wednesday morning at a quarter after midnight, I attempted to walk down the driveway. Problem was, the snow has gotten so compacted it did turn to ice. After about two steps, I twisted my left foot, landed on my ass, and sent my phone flying.

I’ve been doing this picture-taking thing for 20 years now. To close out this 20th year, I pulled out my old negative folder and scanned several negatives from that first year.

For years, Microsoft has been compared to the Borg from Star Trek. However, with all the bruhaha regarding how they are coercing Windows 7 and 8 users to upgrade to Windows 10, I feel that a comparison to the Cybermen from Doctor Who was more apt.
