Facebook Platform Changes…

:: Tags: Facebook, Networking


Facebook has just published a new detailed list of changes it expects to add to its already complicated Platform over the next six months. They have also provided a time-line with the projected launch dates for these new features. Even though this information is intended mostly for developers of third-party applications, it also gives users a chance to figure out how best to interact with the new features and applications once they are implemented. Check it out… Facebook:  Developers Roadmap»

Awesome Halloween Costume – Watch more Funny Videos

My brother just sent me the link for this video and I thought it just too cool not to share. I’ve been trying to figure out what to dress up as for the Halloween party this coming Saturday night, but up until now I’ve been kind of stumped. I know it’s way to late to try and pull something like this off, but theres always next year…!!!

The 2009 Boating Season…

:: Tags: Boating, Friends, Thoughtful


I’ve taken the time to put together a small collection of photos that Julie and I took during this past summer. Most of these photos never made the normal journal posts because they were on our small camera (the one Julie uses) which doesn’t get downloaded very often. After cleaning out our little camera for the up coming holidays, I realized that I really hadn’t posted a whole lot of photos from the boating season. I normally try to post at least two boating photo stories a month during the summer, but this past summer was so busy I just didn’t have the time. So, as a tribute to this past summer, and the fun and sun that it gave us, here are some pictures to keep us warm over the winter…. Enjoy!!

The Harvest Moon…

:: Tags: Boating, Photo


This past Sunday on the cruise back from dinner at the Fort Washington Marina, we noticed the moon rising behind us and had to stop the boat to try to capture it. It was the harvest moon and even though the full phase of the moon was the night before (I think?), it was still a spectacular site… especially from the water! For shooting free hand from the back of a rocking boat, I’d say the photos turned out pretty good, but I really wish I’d been on a stable platform with a tripod… then they would have been awesome!
