About this site
Mike and I are having fun with the Internet and with sharing our adventures and travels with our friends.  We hope that the result of our efforts will be educational and entertaining (both for us and for you).  Come on in and take a look around.  And then send us an e-mail to let us know what you think of our efforts.
What’s New?

We decided we wanted a dog and had been scouring the SPCA’s and the pound.  We finally found just the right dog on Dec. 7th, 2002 (incidently Mike’s BD).  Her name is Brandy and she’s an Australian Shepherd.  She’s a wonderful companion and traveling buddy. 

There are 4 new pages of photos listed below.  Check ‘em out!

New  We’ve added a Net Cam to the site for live video.  This cam works whether or not there’s a computer running here since it’s got a built-in web server.

We’re married!  Click here for more info!                For those of you that didn’t see it, here’s the license plate on the Harley: 

Here are a few wedding photos to get you started! Photo link

Cable Internet

ATT Broadband has finally gotten cable Internet available in our neighborhood.  We signed up and went live on June 14, 2002.  So far, so good.  We’ve got no complaints and are quite happy with the speed.  I see that Comcast is going to be taking over ATTBI soon but that shouldn’t affect this site at all since we’re hosted by XO Communications.

Mike was using a Nikon Coolpix 950 up until November 2002.  His new camera (an early Christmas present from Michele, is the Canon G2. 

Michele uses the Canon S-100 Elph digital camera.

After the pictures are taken, we use the software Paint Shop Pro and Thumbs Plus to manipulate the images and create web pages.


Digital Camera Links

http://www.ckcpower.com                  Tom, in New York, is the kind of guy that finds a need and fills it.  We’ve bought monoculars from him to add “telephoto” to the Coolpix and S100.  we’ve bought the adapters from him to attach the monocular to the camera.  These are custom machined for each application.
