I've been copying old home videos from videotapes to my Mac so I can create DVDs for Christmas presents for my children. Have I ever mentioned I love the Mac? I bought my first one in 1984!

I finally got some Super 8 film reels from my dad, DVD'ised it, which required professional help, and then put some clips up on the internet with my my speaking narration and some music. I got my first Mac in 1991, Will get a new mac again soon. 
By the way, why haven't you added me back? You came highly recommended on Google+.

I bought my wife and me each an iPhone 5 today. I stood in line at the Apple store from 6:30 am. My son, Bryce, also got his today. Hopefully Kerry and his wife will get theirs tomorrow. I am very impressed with the new iPhone and its features! Four inch HD screen, new earphones, new map app, panoramic photos, etc., etc.

At the big Pinewood Derby race. I helped my grandson make a skateboard style car. It's got a professional gold colored paint job. It's cool.

I've been viewing & sorting our 1,000+ slides from years ago.  It's lots of work. Going to take them to Costco to have them digitally scanned.
