Todays blog is the first I have done for a few days now.Perhaps because I feel blogging stale, I'm really not sure.I do know that I dont look forward to posting like I did a while ago. It may be the lack of interesting things happening to blog about during the long Winter days, is the problem.I think you really have to be motivated into blogging, which at the moment I'm not. Also after over two years blogging I still have my trusty band of readers (bless them) but very little in the way of new readers or more to the fact, commentors. Maybe this should tell me something, just maybe my blog does not appeal to a wide enough set of readers. All this has put serious doubts in my mind about carrying on blogging, over the next week or two I will give it some serious thought.
So to todays blog. Over the last few weeks Sue and I have been struggling to get the Video part of our "Finepix" camera and also our phone to record us a couple of decent Video's. To no avail I'm afraid, although the "Finepix A700" is a great little camera for stills. So last week we were shopping when we saw this tiny little Video Camera being demonstrated, after watching we decided this could be just what we were looking for. I then went into another shop and saw this advertised for £75.00 BP. After a little haggling we came out with this camera , the Flip-Video-Ultra-Camcorder-60-Minutes in Black (look it up), with a USB connecting lead for £71.00 BP. I cannot praise it enough, its just so simple to use and has fair picture quality too. See for your selves below, The first Video was taken in our "Local" the Kings Arms, it was taken to test how it coped with low light levels, as you can see it did well!!!.
Although the group are no budding "Beatles" etc, they did provide some reasonable

Not thinking straight again, have put these the wrong way to how i planned them, Bu***r.This next Video is of our latest aquisition the "Raclet Quickstop" folding camper. I joined several takes together to make these shortish clips. To get the Camper erected to this level took Sue and I exactly 4 mins 20 seconds. It also has underskirts and beds plus a full Awning, (not fitted).

Finally this Video was taken as five seperate short clips then made into a Video (so were the others). This Camera has built into it a mode for editing the film and joining it into a full video. No memory cards etc, its internal memory gives 60 mins full Video time. This is first part of the town centre, then out onto the Sea front, showing the Pier, finally showing the award winning park and Childrens play area.

Joke of the day

A husband wrote the following letter for his wife and left it on the dining-room table:
To My Dear Wife,
You will surely understand that I have certain needs that you, being 54 years' old, can no longer satisfy.
I am very happy with you and I value you as a good wife. Therefore, after reading this letter, I hope that you will not wrongly interpret the fact that I will be spending the evening with my 18-year-old secretary at the Comfort Inn Hotel. Please don't be upset - I shall return home before midnight.
With love from Your loving husband.
When the man came home late that night, he found the following letter on the dining-room table:
To My Dear Husband,
I received your letter and thank you for your honesty.
I would like to remind you that you too are 54 years' old. As you know, I am a maths teacher at our local college and I have to inform you that while you're at the Comfort Inn, I will be at the Hotel Fiesta with Eric, one of my students. He is very virile and, like your secretary, he is 18 years' old. As you too have a good knowledge of maths, you will understand that we are in the same situation - although with one small difference: 18 goes into 54 a lot more times than 54 goes into 18.
So it'll be well after midnight before I get home.
With love from Your loving wife.

heheheh love that joke!
I think you should keep on blogging just whenever the muse hits you.
I've been blogging a little less frequently recently, mainly because it's winter (*blah!) and I don't seem to have been doing much that's blogworthy.... there's a limit to how many times I can post a pic of my lovely grandson! So keep on blogging.... I'll read 'em!
I'm thinking of buying a little video camera too, they are so small these days, and make such good videos.

Hi Bob ~~ Pretty darn good effort for a real quickie, and lack of
inspiration to blog. Well done.
Keep at it, just when you feel like it. Good joke, especially the maths part of it. Thanks for your comments and I am glad you enjoyed the post. I have been lax lately because of the pain I am having, can't think straight. Plan to post later tonight. Take care, Regards, Merle.
