Photo A Day#710 "Cobblestone Road" I finished up an assignment in Elkorn and instead of coming back to the office on the main roads I came back on the back roads. One of the roads I was on was Cobblestone Road between Elkhorn and Delavan. The wind was really kicking up the freshly fallen snow and once the sun ducked behind the clouds it got kinda dark, oh and it was cold. I had to wait a few... minutes for the light to be just right to get this photo, if I took the photo before the sun was behind the clouds the photo was way too bright and when it was behind the clouds at certain points it was losing the detail in the shadow area, so this was a compromise and was able to get the both of what I wanted.
This week's revelation that the U.S. National Security Agency included online gaming in its menu of surveillance techniques should come as no surprise.
The only question I have is, "what will they think of next?"
We all get so busy this time of year, I’m sure you’ll agree that there is no time for mistakes or for making dishes that don’t turn out. That’s why I tend to stick to the tried and true -- those recipes that have stood the test of time. Many of these recipes have been passed down from friend to friend or from one generation to the next. Making the recipe is a sweet way to remember the person who first gave it to you.
Photo A Day# 703 "Fog" Today was just a foggy day , all day. This is the entrance to Yerkes in WIlliams Bay. The fog along with the dullness of the ground and the overall grayness of the photo is what I like about it. I didn't want to go black and white with this photo, cause I think it would have taken away the subtleness of the image and the overall mood .
As our country’s political parties continue to revel in, and exploit, each other’s blunders -- be it the government shutdown or a crashing website -- the media feed off it like sharks in chum-filled waters. Meanwhile, the nation continues to suffer the consequences of an ineffective government at war with itself as politicians insist on fighting for the agenda of their sponsors rather than for the good of their country.
