My Learning Curve

Time escapes around here. How do those of you who write often and check out everyone else find the time to do it? It’s a beautiful day but I got up way too early. Rare for me not to be able to sleep.

I’m trying to get pictures off my video camera. I have nearly 12 hours worth that need to be edited. Finally got the downloaded but the software that came with the camera won’t work with Vista and I’m having to improvise. I took the picture in wide screen mode and in the editing I’m seeing tall skinny people even when I know we are neither. Anybody know if that will change when I put them on TV?

They look fine on the camera, I’m just wondering if in the process of downloading something has gotten messed up. I need to get a DVD burned and give it a try. Here may be another problem. Our DVD player has been around for a while and would not show the snapshots that I put on a disk. Tried both CD and DVD and it didn’t like either one. So, I may have to get a new DVD player before I can check out the quality of the movies.

It seems God wants me to continue to stretch my brain as I have to learn new software way to often. Prayer appreciated!

Our west Texas grandchildren are playing in a golf tournament in Austin Friday and Saturday so we are going up to watch. Haven’t seen them since September and I am really looking forward to it.

Life stays interesting. Have some stuff to put up from a talk by Graham Cooke. I’ll get it done in the next day or two. Now I’m off to see what the rest of you are doing.

hi pat -- great to hear from you!

as for me, it seems like i have been crazy-busy for the past few weeks, but when I look back I don't see that i have done a whole lot... hopefully the next few weeks will be more purposeful for me.

I'm not good with the digital camera stuff....
Send it to me, though, I want to look skinny!

Hi, Pat. Time has flown for me, too. Enjoy the time with your grandkids, and if you see my parents there in Austin, can you give 'em a hug for me? (hehe)
