A Silver Lining

Yesterday as I was driving back to my office after a meeting I heard what sounded like a rock hitting the side of my car. When I got to the office I couldn't see any marks and thought maybe I got lucky. Then, when driving to dinner someone pointed out that my right rear tire was nearly flat. Ugh. I got the spare tire on and figured I would take it in to the dealership to get it fixed today.

So I drove into the Lexus service center today and they said it would take an hour or so to get fixed but in the meantime, I can sit in a comfy chair with free soda, fresh cookies, free wifi and the Michigan-Wisconsin came on the big TV. And Michigan just scored a touchdown!

Maybe I should get flat tires more often...

Imaging Society

You may have noticed that I haven't been posting here as much. That's because I've been putting a fair amount of energy into my imaging blog over at Imaging Society. Lots of useful news and information about digital photography and developing your personal workflow.

Check it out!

Countries I've Been To

I found World66 -- a site that creates maps of all of the countries you've been to. I have my work cut out and it begs the question - do you go for volume or try to fill in a region? I mean there are lots of Caribbean countries that would be easy to hit on a cruise but they would barely fill in dots. Now Greenland - there's a big dot! Russia too. I am hoping to fill in that little gray spot in Europe soon when I take a train through Belgium in a few weeks. Perhaps I'll even zip over to Luxembourg as well.

The bigger issue is that I'm still missing 3 contents and one of them - Antarctica - doesn't even appear on the map! Poor lonely Antarctica!
