Saturday Mornin' Rant

I'm so sick of this hot ass, humid, muggy , stankass dirty south weather!!!!!! Was gonna take the camera out and get some pics but wouldn't you know it......... the lens just fogs the fvck up. I couldn't live in this shit if it weren't for air conditioning. Hell, the dogs don't even want to go out in the shit. They just want to lay around in the cool of the A/C all day.
Sorry for the rant, but sometime you just gotta get on here and say fvck it all!!!!

Finally bought a new camera.
Took a while but I decided on the Canon PowerShot SX10 IS
I found the camera online for $335 and managed to buy another $164.99 of accessories to go with it. I'm not going to even mention where I bought it, as I have some issues with their online communication skills!!! Not to mention the HIGH PRESSURE PHONE SALES WEASEL!!!!:(
Below are my first shots with it set on automatic.
Yes I'm photographically illiterate!!!!
How photographically illiterate is the Uncivilone????
Well.......
I still don't have the heart to retire my trusty old 1.3 megapixel Sony Cybershot DSC-S30. It's been my only camera since 2001 when I first entered the cyber world.
All my previous photos were taken with it, and she was great for Ebay photos. My dad still has his and loves it.
OK.....enough crying over the old Cybershot!
My new Canon PowerShot SX10 IS takes video! Yes, I've uploaded some video taken with it today ! The files are quite large for such short clips though? I've got to figure out how to make them a little smaller? Anyone got any suggetsions? They're just short little clips but are huge in megabytes? Didn't even have any clips under 20 megabytes to email?

Anyway.....I love the clarity of the videos. I don't like that you can hear the buttons and the zoom in the audio of the video? I was impressed with the zoom on the river shot with the gal in the boat. But, it's much harder to hold a camera steady than one of those palm held camcorders.

I do like the fact that it does it all ( stills and video). But I will probably get a camcorder in the future?

Then maybe I'll be wishing I bought one of the Canon Rebel SLR's???? I'm way too photographically illiterate for one of those at the moment, so I'll continue to hone my skills with this point and shoot for now!

I had to use my two favorite subjects for my first photo/video shoot with the new toy of course. Abigail and Emily aren't impressed!LOL
Gosh.....they're getting old:(

Happy Trails Lulu

My mom's little fur buddy Lulu passed away last night (8/10/2009). She went to be with her best buddy Maggie ( pictured below) who passed away July of 2007. Mom called me tonight and let me know. She's so strong at handling heartache. Seems to be handling it a lot better than I could.
She passed in her sleep as Maggie did a few years back. Had a good life and lived to be 12 years old and got to spend over 10 or 11 of those years with my mom.

Mom and aunt Eva rescued her from a puppy mill back in 98 or 99. She was kept in a really small cage with hardly any human contact for the first year or so before mom came along.

Mom saw her and it was love at first sight. She's been an inside dog ever since. Got to stay in the cool of air conditioning and my mom makes the best chicken concoction to mix in with their dry food. Lulu loves to eat.

She got breakfast every morning and mom would even give her a taste of something at lunch, and of course she got supper too!

My sister's boxer Missy has been her companion since Maggie passed away. Missy would come over and stay with her every day while sis and bro-in-law were at work. Mom said Missy could tell something was wrong with Lulu yesterday and wouldn't leave her side. Guess I need to get sis to send me some pics of Missy.

Here's the Link back when Maggie passed. Here's another Link for pictures of Lulu too!

We love you Lulu and you were dearly loved and will me missed by us all!
