Just Can't Get Enough...






Wow, we just can't get enough of this new camera! I think my daugther likes Rebel Yell as much as I do! Look, here are some of her pics...


I will be taking a 3 hour class next week so then hopefully I will be able to do some manual manipulation as well. Great fun to try something new!

So today is our first real vacation day and it is sooo blah outside: rain and clouds and more blah. Sir C. is running in a Cross Country Camp at school this week and Miss M. is hanging out at home with me. We have already been 'fighting' about whose turn it is to sit behind the computer this morning (yes, I am completely addicted to the thing) but now she is in the kitchen baking cookies.

At least we have tickets to see the Mariners (baseball) for the four of us this Wednesday and on Friday G. and I will go and see Mark Lanegan (lead singer of The Screaming Trees) in action. We saw The Screaming Trees live in Berlin sometime during the early 90's and have followed them, and him later when he went solo, since. They are actually from around here!

Screaming Trees (1985–2000)

Along with Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Nirvana, Screaming Trees were part of Seattle's emerging grunge scene in the early 1990s. The band was formed in 1985 by Mark Lanegan, guitarist Gary Lee Conner, bassist Van Conner and Mark Pickerel.[3] Mark Pickerel would later be replaced with Barrett Martin. Lanegan said "I was such a shitty drummer that they made me sing."[1] The band signed to Sub Pop. (excerpt taken from Wikipedia)

And now: (he's cleaned up a lot better than I thought...)
