I have a Nikon Coolpix B500 camera.
|I have a red one because... well... I like red|
It's nice. Nikon wants me to store my pictures in the 'cloud.' Of course, I don't use their 'cloud," mine are stored on my tablet. I don't want to have my 40,000 dog pictures floating around in their 'cloud.' I don't want to have to sign into their 'cloud' to look at them. Anyway, Nikon decided this camera was not going to rely on my USB cables, not a very smart decision. You see, there's a firmware update... To do this update, I need to download the files on one of my laptops, take the memory card out of the camera and put it into the laptop, transfer the files to the memory card, reinsert the memory card into the camera and turn it on. After the update is complete, I will need to take the memory card out of the camera, reinsert it into the laptop and delete the update file before inserting the memory card back into the camera. Son of a bitch!
I saw that the Idiot Jerk in the White House had a rally in Michigan last night. Believe it or not, I watched about 2 minutes of a replay this morning, volume turned down of course, it's better that way. His screechy voice makes my skin crawl. The visual was enough. This is a man who is seething with rage. His white base loves and shares his hatred. Oh, and white is the correct adjective. I saw one black person, and he was with security. In 2020 1/3 of the voters in America will be a minority. Their skin will be brown, or black. Some will have high cheekbones. Some will wear hijabs. We need to insure that not only are minorities registered to vote (they need to start registering now), we need to insure they go to the polls. This is how evolution happens. You know, survival of the fittest.
Since the temps are supposed to remain above freezing, this is the weekend I'm going to start my planting. I've got cantaloupe and squash seeds ready to go in the ground. And poppies. And black sunflowers... for something new. Leaves are budding on my nectarine and peach trees. I don't know whether I'll get fruit this year or not. Time will tell.
