Save with Ting Cell Service

I have had a VOIP account for my home phone for many years, when that phone died I decided to switch my home line to my old cell phone. I like having the assurance of a second “home” line, even though I don’t use it a lot, it’s good to field sales calls and such. […]

Tovala: A Smart Oven

This post has absolutely nothing to do with photography, more about lifestyle I suppose. I want to introduce you to Tovala.

There is also a food-delivery plan, which is optional, that come with bar codes so you simply scan it […]

Book Cover With a Story

Wayfinding Academy

I support The Wayfinding Academy – Education the way it should be done. Wish I had had the opportunity when I was going to school.  


Now and then I browse through Kickstarter to see what interesting things are being created out in the world. I actually have to avoid the place because there are a lot of really great ideas and things people are bringing to the market that I inevitably think I need, so it tugs on my purse […]

This is supper cool and an area of photography I would love to experiment with. Here is your chance to win … but I will admit I hope I win. 😉  



Found another one of my photos in use, this time on Animoto. Animoto is an online video making program that for the past 5+ years I actually use, at least a few times a year. They have great templates and I really love the ease with which you can make a nice looking, high quality, […]

On Apple!

Yes! So this happened today … My photo of the Galapagos islands is in use on apple’s home page!! It’s small on a Macbook air screen and then there is another for Apple’s back to school offer. Since I am a fully indoctrinated Mac user I am really excited that Apple used my shot!!
