Wondering why I haven’t shared my 51st birthday waterfall pics yet? This is why. I can’t do anything with my RAW photos without making more of a mess. If you’re not into photography this is one post you can just skip.
Summed up in one line “I like almost everything better about Lightroom except renting it, but I’m trying to switch to On1“. I’m aware that my initial opinion is likely biased because I don’t want to learn another program. I’ve had different On1 offerings since it was On One somewhere back around 2015, but fell into using Lightroom and Photoshop more often with On1 as a plug-in instead of a stand-alone. Many of their programs can be used either way. And, to be fair I use programs until they won’t work any longer. So either one, On1 Raw 2021 or Lightroom subscription would both have a slight learning curve. I just prefer to concentrate on shooting than sitting in the office working!
My mom bought the series but we were both reading the second one, Dominion at the same time so I got a copy from the library. This is one thick book to finish in 3 weeks while you have lots of other stuff going on. My mom loaned me book 3, Deception with the promise she’d ask for it back if she got to it before I finished it.
The pic is of Tyler, well because it’s fall, I love my cat, and it’s the least blurry one form this last photo session. Yes, he got treats. This post and video talks about the
Oh my, I think I have too many tripods :O and that’s not even counting the little ones. Honey, if you’re reading this, yes I’ll be listing my 2 Mefotos soon and the glow in the dark Splat! 🙂 It took a bit to figure out what matters to me and what to look for in a tripod.
FYI the entire post is about hair and hair products
I saw a gal with beautiful curly hair at Chick-fil-a. It was after I had already discovered Controlled Chaos but went to ask her what she used anyway. She said, Diva Curl. I like that with CC you have one product for defining curls which I found out was not the case with DC. So I answered their questionnaire, a few different ways if I was between answers and then bought a sale package with some extra products thrown in. I’m am sticking with Controlled Chaos. Your mileage may vary.
Probably like lots of curly gals my curls are not the same all over. The back bottom part near my neck is the curliest and shrinks up the farthest in tighter curls, the bangs and top back are hardly even wavy and the rest is somewhere in between. It’s all frizzy and dry and grows slower than a child waiting on Christmas.
Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens had been recommended by my hairdresser.
I like most John Grisham books a little better than I did The Reckoning. Continue reading
It seems nothing is made to last anymore, regardless of what you pay! At least with appliances. I don’t know how the landfills are not full of appliances just a few years old. None of those appliances in the first house in 1993 ever had a problem in the 12 years we lived there. Not to jinx it but the fridge in the garage is from that house and is still working.

I’ve never been to DC, but I’ve always wanted to go so when hubby mentioned going for our 29th anniversary I quickly started gathering info and bought a more netcams, a new smaller lens ball and tripod, the Pedco UltraPod II Lightweight Camera Tripod Continue reading
I wrote a post recently and found that I was not alone in needing outside security cameras so to help me make sense of the choices I’ll share what I’m looking at. I’ve been compiling this post since then but finally made the time to look up the last of the ones on my list. Maybe you can benefit from my hours and hours of reading and research— we shouldn’t ALL have to go through that! Check marks by the ones I’ve narrowed down to.
If you are not interested in security cameras you can skip this post.
