Photo Experiment

Had a bit of down time tonight, and started playing with a new version of the photo editing software I use most of the time. Found a new plug-in, and I like the results: Art Rose

New Year Check-in

First week of the new year is behind us, and how are things looking? Well, aside from the cold over the weekend, I think things are going okay.

I have not done formal resolutions for a while, but I have tried to improve myself, and sometimes a new effort matches up with the calendar. Aside from my New Year's Day Post

Happy New Year

Hello, and welcome to the new year! If you are reading this, then you are one of the lucky ones who made it through 2016. We lost a lot of important and highly entertaining folks in 2016.

Since this is a new year, I have decided that I should try those silly resolution things again. My two big ones I am willing to go public with are to get into better shape and the other is to complete another Project 365. So far, I am 100% on the second goal!

You should go look atp365.donaldharper.com and keep me honest.

As for the getting fit thing, I cheated, and started a couple of weeks ago. My two short term goals are to get to the point where I can do 100 push-ups daily (I am already up to 55 from starting at 10), and to be up and moving for at least 60 minutes daily. I have been tracking the movement for a while, and I am hit an miss. It is always harder over the holidays, but I think I can easily get that one going well.

See you in a while!

Happy Christmas

Note- This is late due to software breakage

Just a quick note before the end of the year to wish everyone a happy Christmas, holidays, and/or New Year!

Santa Train

TRF 2016

This last weekend was the last weekend for the 2016 Texas Renaissance Festival. Since the fall has been a bit crazy with sports and the new job that we only got to go one time this year.

Naturally, I took my camera, but as luck would have it, the battery which said it was full before I left was actually flat, and died on me. I ended up using my phone (Nexus 5x), which turned out took decent pictures within limits. Action shots were out. However, I did manage to get a a few I liked, so on the photographic front, it was not a total loss.

On the family and fun side, we all had a blast, as the weather was near perfect. We still did not manage to leave at the right time, and it did take us almost 45 minutes to leave the parking lot. Oh, well.
