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.

It's pinewood derby time! I'm helping my grandson make a skateboard pinewood derby! It's going to be sleek and fast!

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.

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!

Apple announces new, smaller iPad Mini.

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.
