Here are some photos I took this morning. I don't like the way Blogger makes your photos smaller when you upload, it takes away from the quality.

This one I took with my Canon, using a special setting.

Random, I know, but appreciate it for the artistic quality...

Loved it!

I recently read The Memory Keepers Daughter by Kim Edwards. It's a very good read. Only after a few weeks of finishing it I discovered there was a movie made based on the book. I usually don't like watching movies after I have read the book, but this one was actually pretty good. The book has 401 pages and everything is very detailed. Like most movies from books some details were left out, but the movie followed the book pretty closely. This is definitely one of my favorite books. Check it out at your local library!

Stop! It's Hammer time!

It is currently 1:25 P.M.
Someone just signed in for a computer and put the time down as 1:11! Not a child mind you, he is at least 18.
I rest my case...

State Fair, a GREAT movie, and frustration!

So this is a little delayed, but here it goes!
Tuesday I dropped off my photos for the state fair in Little Rock. I won't know how they did until at least the 10, that is when the fair actually starts. I hope I get to go back while it is actually going on, I have two main reasons, the first is to see how my photos did. The second is I want to try a Pig Licker, for those of you who don't know a Pig Licker is chocolate covered bacon! If I don't get to back whiloe it is going on I won't know until the end of the month when the entries are picked up. Here's a random photo from the road...

After we got back from Little Rock, Clay and I saw the movie Fireproof. It is so good! I would encourage everyone to go see it. I'm not married, so I can't say this for sure, but I think it will have an even bigger impact on you if you are married.

So let's move on to frustration, after 3:30 or so on weekdays there is a steady stream of young people who come through the library to use the computers. We have 10 computers, so once they are full we start a waiting list, everyone gets one hour and when there time is up we ask them to let someone else use it, then we call the next person on the list. So here's the scenario 10 computers, 10 users, one user gets up leaving 10 computers, and 9 users. So obviously the person being called would use the open computer. Amazingly enough at least half of the people say "which computer do I use", Okay once again just to clarify, there are 10 computers, 9 people using them leaving 1 computer open. Am I crazy or should it not be ridiculously obvious?!?

It amazes me, I'm to the point I just laugh and say the only one open. One day someone ask that and they response they got from my co-worker was "the one that's open, unless you want to sit on someone's lap!" I thought I might actaully pee my pants!
