I Am A Moron
Hi, I'm Mike and I'm a moron. See the guy in the image below? That was how I felt last month when one of my hard drives began to act up and was making funny noises. No problem, thought I. I'll eject it, unplug it, plug it back in, and go from there. Bad mov...

A collection of Nebulae. The shot includes: The Heart Nebula (right), Soul Nebula (middle), Sharpless 202 Nebula (left), VDB14 Nebula (the blueish nebula to the left of the star at the far left that looks like an upside down "V") and VDB 15 Nebula (the blueish nebula just below VDB14 that surrounds a bright star).

February issue of Photoshop User Magazine is officially out. Very cool to have been asked to write an article on astrophotography by the editor. It's a scaled down version of my recent blog post series on the same topic.

I booked All About Moving to move my office and photography studio into a new location. It was the most professional, thorough, courteous group of persons I vould gave hoped for who worked extremely hard without any breaks. If you are looking for movers don't look any further than these folks. Not only will your move be handled diligently and carefully, you will pay less than what other movers charge.

Everything about Jeff and Swain Pools is top notch. Not only is Jeff extremely courteous and professional, he is fair, honest and dependable. He takes the time to walk you through any options you might have when needing his services and goes the extra mile to make sure what you decide is in your best interest. We tried other pool service companies in town before finding swain Pools. Some were unreliable, some didn't appear to have a staff that knew what they were doing. Since we started using Swain Pools for repair and service of our below ground pool years ago, our pool has never looked better in terms of water clarity. Every time Jeff has rendered advice as to what to do or how to do it, it has been spot on. This has saved us a lot time, aggravation and money. It's always a good feeling to know that when you need something done that you can't do yourself, your needs will be more than fulfilled by someone upon whom you depend, be it a mechanic, a plumber or a roofer. I depend on Jeff and Swain Pools and he has always come through beyond any reasonable expectations.
