Weekend Reflections

Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. Click on the web address under the blog title and sign up to play with us!
 Between junky weather and taking lessons to learn how to use my new camera, I'm having to depend on my photo files for a while -- hope you can be patient with me!!  Here are some of my favorite friends at the latest turtle convention! Politics everywhere these days!!
Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.  Victor Hugo

Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand.    Mark Twain

You make me smile with that "turtles convention"!
Great reflection of the sun on the soft waves always brings me quietness and peace. Thank you for that!
I wish you a nice week-end, dearest Sylvia!

Those turtles are sure enjoying the sun. Fine contributions to this site.

Here's a quick lesson in learning how to use your new camera: Put in on auto, and click away! :-)

Seriously, though, one of my favorite photogs (kenrockwell.com) notes that today's cameras have terrific computer power and do all the good stuff automatically. You can't go wrong on the Auto setting for most pictures.

Have fun, whatever you do!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
