marit runyon1,475It's been a tradition for several years to meet for a New Year's Day Photo Walk around sunrise. City of Mesa down town is a fabulous place, and Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum covers a block with interesting buildings, water fountains, art effects, windows with posters, stair cases and fascinating architecture. The Light rail passes the art center on Main street. We could meet at the parking lot and check out the art center, continue downtown Main street and perhaps find a local restaurants for breakfast?  Please spread the word.

Mike Runyon28,336While I realize a lot of people have to work on President's Day, it is worth while asking for the day off. The traffic is considerably less and the crowds are diminished, making for far more photo opportunities. All those who can attend can meet just inside the main gate as there's a large area to gather and then proceed on through the event. There is a lot to see and do, as well as some great food to go with! There are numerous shows and great displays and has been quite the fun time all the years I've attended. You can buy tickets at the main entrance or you can usually pick up discount tickets at Fry's groceries. http://royalfaires.com/arizona/ Even though you may not be able to attend, please share this with any and all you think might be interested in the event!Arizona Renaissance Festival President's Day Photowalk2013-02-18 18:00:0020  
russ vallelunga28,976Sycamore is the second largest canyon in the Red Rock District of Coconino National Forest (the first being Oak Creek), but is lesser known, and less traveled.  It's also more pristine, less populated by 'venturers', and friendlier to unspoiled~nature photographic scenes.  A riparian habitat in the desert, the subjects to photograph range from macro to landscape.  30 minutes out of Cottonwood, Az, a light decent of 200 feet leads to a level, sandy hiking trail   I'm staging a 'hiking' photowalk here, September 16th (alternate date, Sept. 30th if the 16th turns out to be unsuitable due to weather).   This is wilderness habitat.  The trail is mostly sandy and smooth, but sturdy shoes are needed. Bring at least 2 quarts of water per person (or purification tablets for the natural springwater); pack a non-perishable lunch, plus snacks.  There are *no* toilet facilities in the wilderness. I will bring a light shovel and a couple rolls of TP; we shall be considerate in covering any natural wastes and elsewise packing out what we pack in.  Animal subjects may include Golden eagles, mountain lions, bobcats, badgers, great blue herons, and black bears (most are elusive, but it could happen) and certainly smaller birds, squirrels, rabbits, and reptiles.  Natural subjects include miniwaterfalls, sandy waterways with moss and fungi, and water pools bathed in red-rock reflections.   Flora subjects include cottonwood, sycamore, and Arizona walnut trees, & a variety of wildflowers, vines, moss and fungi.  The photowalk will end about 2 miles in, at a pool of water about the size of an Olympic sized pool, surrounded by rocks of many colors. You're invited to camp out overnight at the trailhead for an early start/meet & greet  (campfires may be prohibited--bring a camping stove, or cooler for chilled foods).  There's no moon on the 16th, so I will offer assistance in astro-photography if desired.   Morning travelers to the event should use a travel site such as googlemaps or mapquest to determine at what time in the wee-hours of the morning they will need to leave from their location to arrive by 7:30am, then leave 1/2 hour earlier (just to be sure).  Those arriving late are welcomed to follow down the well-marked trail to catch up with the group.  Photowalk: Parson's Trail, Sycamore Canyon, Az2012-09-16 16:00:0011

A little Repair Work
My Fairfax SPCD-7 vacuum crapped out on me yesterday when trying to vacuum the carpets. Now even though it was made in the early 90's and from what I've read online it was designed by NASA, although not used in outer space and originally cost around $2000, so you would think the power cord would hold up longer than 20 some years!
It seems the cord broke internally where it goes into the handle, so I figured I would just remove the handle and replace the cord. Wrong! I had to almost completely disassemble the machine to get to the connections! 
Maisy, one of my dogs thought I was spending way too much time fixing the vacuum and wanted me to throw her ball for her. You can see her ball on top of the vacuum canister where she put it so I'd have easy access to it!
All is now well as I got it fixed and reassembled and threw her ball for her!

Future News Headline?
The Obama administration is considering ordering the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office to revoke the trademark of the Indian Motorcycle Company, as they believe many Native Americans find the use of the word indian to be as offensive as the Washington Redskins moniker. 
It seems especially those Native Americans who ride Hondas, Yamahas, BMWs, Triumphs & Harleys are offended!

English Only!
While flipping through my Harley Davidson owner's manual, parts catalog, service manuals & and some instructions for a Harley Davidson battery tender I couldn't help but notice there wasn't a single word printed on any of them in Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, German, Portuguese, French, nor any other language but English! 
I've also noticed that most of the clothing sold at Harley dealers has Made In The U.S.A. stamped on the label.
It's good that Harley Davidson is a proud American company and not afraid to show it!
I imagine they do have manuals available in the native language of the countries they export to, but it's nice not to have to flip through a bunch of languages I don't understand to get to the English version!

Birthday Boy
Yoda will turn 11 this coming Monday. He's been part of our lives and home for the past 10 & 1/2 years. We got him from a Jack Russell rescue. Apparently he had been a gift to an older gentleman that ended up in a Colorado nursing home shortly afterwards and couldn't take him there.
Over the years Yoda has taught us many dog commands, such as a quiet woof in the middle of the night for me to walk him to the doggie door and again when he returns to put him up in bed. He has a somewhat louder woof for both breakfast and dinner, as well as when he's trying to get one of their stuffed animals through the doggie door and it won't fit. There is also one for when he decides it's time for their walk. His 2 furry sisters let him do all the woofing and just go along with his lead.

As you can tell from these 2 shots, the first taken when he was just a few weeks old, he likes his pillows! Although he's had his share of medical problems & surgeries he seems to be doing quite well now. 
He's definitely my buddy and probably the smartest dog I've had the pleasure of knowing!

Newborn Cacti
While doing some weeding in my cactus bed I noticed that my big barrel type cactus has given birth to a couple of little cacti. I thought they were kind of cute. The cactus is 15 years old and this is the first it's done this.

As a side note, while weeding a flower bed can be a bit of a pain, I can guarantee you that weeding a cactus bed is literally a pain. I have about 10 new holes in my arms that I didn't have when I started! You'd think the cacti would show some consideration with all that I was doing for them!

Screwed Again!
Same "Great Price", but 45 cups less for your money! When buying coffee this past week I thought it seemed the cans were somewhat smaller and when I got home I compared it to what I still had in the pantry. The "new" can is on the left. As you can see the cans have shrunken quite a bit, but the price didn't shrink.
I guess they thought by putting it in a newly decorated can, you might not notice the difference. I want my extra 45 cups back!
It's not just the Kroger brand, they are all doing this! Total rip off!

Bulova Accutron Railroad Approved
This was the first wristwatch model ever approved for use on the nation's railroads. 
Because of it's extreme accuracy of + or - 1 minute per month due to being timed with tuning fork that oscillated at 360 times per second and not using a conventional balance wheel. This particular watch in from 1970, but Bulova made the Railroad Approved for 6-8 years before and after this.

Powering Up
I had to replace the battery in my tuning fork timed Bulova Accutron Skeleton today, as well as four other Accutrons as well as the watch band on another Accutron. Went through all my backup batteries and still have one that needs a battery. Guess I need to order more.
The thing is the screws that hold the battery strap seem to be getting a lot smaller as I grow older. Not sure why that is, but one slip and I could damage the timing coils on the tuning fork, so it can take me awhile to change one.

Prescription Prices
We recently discovered that Maisy, one of our rescued Parson Russell Terriers, has developed epilepsy. At first it was an occasional seizure, but soon escalated into cluster seizures of 6-8 in a row, every week to 10 days! 
I took her to the veterinarian and got her on Phenobarbital, which I understand she'll probably be on the rest of her life, but at least it stopped her seizures!
It hasn't changed her personality, except now she's not afraid of the vacuum cleaner or my paper shredder!
One thing that threw me was when I picked up the 1st prescription at the local grocery pharmacy and it came to $52.19 for a months supply or a bit over $600 a year!
I called Wal-Mart's pharmacy and was informed their price was $30.37 which seemed better, but I thought maybe I could do better so I searched drug prices and found a drug discount card that... mehr »

I thought "Yeah right! Like this will work, but what the heck, it's free." 
I used it at Wal-Mart and all of a sudden Maisy's meds were $7.82! That's a savings of over $532 in the course of a year! Awsome!

Any Way you Want It!
I have the original Star Wars Trilogy in Laser Disc, VHS & DVD. Back in the day the laser disc versions of movies came out almost simultaneously with the theatrical release of the movie.
I'm pretty sure that won't happen with "The Force Awakens".

Just What I Wanted-NOT
I was waxing my baby yesterday to prepare it for the harsh Arizona winter when I happened to notice someone had dinged my driver's side door.
Now I always park far away from other vehicles when I take it out, so someone had to go to the trouble to park out where I was so they could bang my door when getting out of their vehicle. The only good thing is they apparently had those plastic strips on their door, so it didn't chip the paint and just left a small dent.
I can only see it from a certain angle, but now I know it's there and it definitely bugs me. If they're going to park out where I do, at least they could watch what they're doing with their doors!

I was waxing my baby yesterday to prepare it for the harsh Arizona winter when I happened to notice someone had dinged my driver's side door.
Now I always park far away from other vehicles when I take it out, so someone had to go to the trouble to park out where I was so they could bang my door when getting out of their vehicle. The only good thing is they apparently had those plastic strips on their door, so it didn't chip the paint and just left a small dent.
I can only see it from a certain angle, but now I know it's there and it definitely bugs me. If they're going to park out where I do, at least they could watch what they're doing with their doors!

Yesteryear's Vacuums
Two of the working Fairfax Vacuum cleaners I have and use regularly. The older one is mostly confined to garage & car cleaning these days, but both still work quite well.

A little Repair Work
My Fairfax SPCD-7 vacuum crapped out on me yesterday when trying to vacuum the carpets. Now even though it was made in the early 90's and from what I've read online it was designed by NASA, although not used in outer space and originally cost around $2000, so you would think the power cord would hold up longer than 20 some years!
It seems the cord broke internally where it goes into the handle, so I figured I would just remove the handle and replace the cord. Wrong! I had to almost completely disassemble the machine to get to the connections! 
Maisy, one of my dogs thought I was spending way too much time fixing the vacuum and wanted me to throw her ball for her. You can see her ball on top of the vacuum canister where she put it so I'd have easy access to it!
All is now well as I got it fixed and reassembled and threw her ball for her!

Chili Tonight!
This has been simmering since about 5:00am this morning and the aroma is is really starting to make my stomach growl.
It has about everything from the supermarket I could find that was either hot, spicy or both! Still have to wait for 2 more hours, till the wife gets home.

Some of the ingredients for tomorrow's dinner. Now that it's cooling off in the desert, it seems like a perfect time to whip up something to warm us up and this usually does it!

Back To The Future Past?
It would seem that Toyota has come out with a new car called the Mirai, which means future in Japanese. It runs on hydrogen fuel cells However Ricoh had a camera in 1988 called the Mirai as well. I have a couple of those.Ricoh's Mirai was the only autofocus slr they ever made and is a fun little camera to play with, but in 1988 it was pretty pricy, as is the Toyota Mirai. 
My brother said he wasn't too sure about getting in an accident with a vehicle filled with hydrogen and I told him I couldn't see a problem with that since it worked so well in the Hindenberg!

Shooting Venus
With the Canyon Lake Marina below it.
This was shot this past Monday at about 4:00am. There was no breeze at all and you could almost hear a pin drop. I actually could hear the fish jumping in the lake and the doors of a Jeep, which was at the marina, close and listened to the sound of its motor winding its way to where I was for over 5 minutes around the perimeter of the lake.
Other than the Jeep, I didn’t see a single soul for over an hour & ½. It seemed a little bit eerie, like one of those alien abduction movies or maybe The X-Files. Sometimes I’m not too sure what nasty 2 or 4 legged critters I might run in to when I’m out in the boonies by myself in the middle of the night, so I usually pack my trusty Walther PK380, just in case!

Probably smart to stick to the speed limit on a very curvy mountain road, especially at night, even if you are driving a Corvette! He was lucky the curb stop was there,  as it's a long way down!

Yesterday & Today
A couple of months ago I came across a shirt I used to wear 30 years ago, when out photographing in the desert. It had gotten stored in the loft when we moved in here 9 years ago and I’d thought it was lost. Much to my surprise I can still wear it and even button it, so I thought maybe I could try to replicate a selfie I took around 1985.
In the original shot I had a Nikon f Photomic, manufactured from 1959-1973, on the tripod and a Nikkormat FTn made 1967-1975 on the strap around my neck. Shot with a Leica M3, Agfachrome 50-RS.
In the recent rendition, the camera on the tripod is a Nikon F5, circa 1999 , and the camera around my neck is a Nikon F2-AS, circa 1979. And, yes I still shoot film, as well as digital. Taken with a Nikon D7100, Nikkor 18-140mm @ 23mm, ISO 200, f/8, 1/250 sec.

The first shot was done in the White Tank Mountains, west of Phoenix, while the recent one was shot in the Superstition Mountain range, east of Phoenix. I had briefly considered driving back to the White Tanks to see if I could find the same spot with the same cactus, but since it’s almost 70 miles one way, I decided against that one!
These days my hair is far more gray and sparse and it seems my cameras are getting heavier as the years pass, but I still love shooting on a regular basis.
As they might say on an AMX commercial “Finding a 30 year old shirt you thought was lost, terrific. Discovering you can still button it……….Priceless!”.
