As I type this it is 1 outside!!


We should have a "Don't Like" button installed just for you guys!! "1" is just not an acceptable temp. Hope the Camaro is tucked in a warm garage!

I know it's cold North of here, because we are at 23 with freezing fog north and west........................but it will be 50 this afternoon.

Chandler called me yesterday to let me know he would be spending the night thursday and Friday so we can ramp up all aviation activity from RC to 1:1 scale. He's been wearing out the RC Sim so I think he's ready for solo. Chandler is a great example of what a child is capable of if you get them interested in something. He struggles in class, but he knows every sports team/player statistic, and he has burned a hole in this RC flying thing. Kind of like the lesson Lamar Steen discovered and taught with the Skybolt in a Denver shop class.

Merry Christmas to the MA2A family from the Nehmers. Photo below isn't the greatest in quality but significant for holiday memories. For years Mom and Dad had a cabin in norther WI that we celebrated many Christmas at. Life may change but the good memories remain.

Mike, Belle doesn't seem to mind the cold very much even without a coat. It was -18F here this morning and she needed to be called back into the house. She just loves being out in the cold, running and playing while begging for us to join her.

Peace to all.

You're right; but the great thing about Labs is that they don't hold a grudge. As soon as the antlers came off (approximately one tenth of a second after I pressed the shutter), Lola was back to her usual, happy self.

So my sister, mindful of the string of Cardinals I've used in my Christmas cards in recent years, posed a question: "No Cardinal In the snow this year? Poor Lola..."

To which my devious mind responded, "Why not? We have the technology..."

Merry Christmas one and all. May the New Year bring the blessings of good health, the love of those around you, and plenty of CAVU skies.

A Zimmermann "hack job" is something most of us aspire to!

I fired up my Nikon Coolscan 9000 today for the first time in a decade. First thing I discovered is my $7,000 scanner is no longer supported, requires a firewire 400 cable, and the driver compatibility stopped somewhere back when Steve Jobs was cleaning out his garage to solder up some experiments.

Good news is, a Google search brought me to an 80 buck program called "Vuescan" which took about three minutes to download and install, and it runs the 9000 like clockwork. I also discovered that my 9000 is still in great demand and brings 3-5 grand depending upon condition. Looks like another piece of Nikon gear is put back into service.

The portrait above is JR's Sweetie (R), her sister (L), and Tatum, Candace's daughter. They wanted a Christmas gift for her Mom and we haven't had great portrait weather, or the time to shoot it, until late yesterday afternoon. Stevie Wonder could shoot a great picture of Candace, she doesn't have a bad expression.

I'll tell you one thing that you realize when you begin scanning film, we remember it as much better than it actually was. "sharp" is a relative thing. I scanned a dozen slides from the 40's this afternoon, to quote Gru (Despicable Me),"This is garbage!" Even my treasured Kodachrome 25's and Fujichrome 50's pale in comparison to the vibrancy we casually capture today.

Just back from church with the family. Santa has been to our house, the two grandchildren are hyperactive and bored in equal proportions and I had to go into the loft to find the tricycle that belonged to the two-year-old's mother, because the three-year-old had got a bike from Santa and wasn't prepared to share. Turkey is still in the oven so, before the alcohol appears and I become incapable and asleep in front of the TV - a Happy Christmas to all our MA2A community and their families.
