Muddled, mystified and mad....

I would have uploaded a new video, including MUSIC by now: except Blogger is acting most contrary. When I try to upload any length of video, it just keeps "uploading" and never processes. (stupid age of stupid machines) I checked Blogger "issues" and sure enough, since last November, there has been a periodic video uploading problem: it hasn't been fixed so far. So who knows when another video will appear, if ever: my patience runs very thin in this venue....

More Movie Maker Madness

I was fiddling with visual effects and inserting still photos into a video. Works pretty cool! Easy too. Now, I just have to arrange some musical background. I don't know how to do that yet....

The Winter Wonderland Water Feature



I am keeping the water feature running through this winter. It is almost leak proofed, such that it only requires three or four 5 gallon buckets of water per day. I get up in the morning and put in a couple of buckets from the outside tap. And in the evening I put in one or two more. Lately, it has been unusually cold: 6F yesterday! Which means that without any thawing, at all, I have to break the ice two or three times a day, instead of just once first thing in the morning. Yeah, the heater I dropped in the pond today looks unsightly, but hopefully it will reduce the ice thickness, and especially keep ice away from the pump!
