Oh well, it couldn't last forever...maybe I should move over to my gmail account. At least they have spam filters. My current web/email provider doesn't that I know of.

Autumn Sunday - Barb & Dave's yard
On our way home from Portland, Maine on Sunday, we stopped to see our friends Barb & Dave, who live in Massachusetts not far from Newburyport. Barb has done a great job with landscaping her back yard, and although it was a little past peak color for the foliage, it still looked pretty nice. I just walked around and tried to capture a little of the quiet ambience of a New England autumn Sunday. Luckily for you, I kept my yap shut and let Nature do the talking. I'm working on finding some appropriate background music.

Just got home from Boston and BLOGtoberfest. I'm kind of disappointed in the video quality. It looks a lot better on the camera than it does on the computer screen. There was very little light as you can see. The photos (see previous entry on my blog) came out a lot better.
Jenny Frazier (alleyesonjenny) did a great job organizing this meetup. It was nice to get some chat time with Steve Garfield, and great to meet Karen Gilbert of RumorGirls, along with their producer Frank. And nice to meet so many other nice folks. Bloggers are the nicest people!
I'm hoping we can get together a compendium of everyone's photos and video.

Steve Garfield, Karen Gilbert of RumorGirls.com and me. One of several photos taken tonight at BLOGtoberfest in Boston. Great party, Jenny (of AllEyesOnJenny). Thanks for organizing it. I'm so glad you convinced me to sign up. It was great meeting so many different people. I'm surprised I was the only one vlogging! See later posts here for video.

House Tour 4 - The Fortress of Solitude
This segment starts off the inside tour of the house with my office, which I'm so proud to have cleaned up over the weekend so it's not a total crack crib anymore. Sorry not to have posted lately, but I've been waiting for my new camera and 4 GB memory chip to come it.
The camera arrived on Friday and today the chip finally arrived, so I'm kickin' it now! For those interested in equipment, it's a Canon A630 8 mpixel camera that takes great video. The 4 gig chip will hold about 50 minutes of 320x240 video. I'm taking it to BLOGtoberfest in Boston this Thursday, so I'm hoping to have a lot of really fun video to post for you on Friday. There are a lot of cool bloggers, vloggers and podcasters coming from all over New England and Boston. East Coast fo'evah, peeps!

Next Thursday, the 19th, I'll be at BLOGtoberfest in Boston, and making video to post here. Should be a really kick-ass party. Lots of cool folks coming, including RumorGirls from Portland, Maine. If you're a blogger in New England, and especially Boston, come on down. Since I'm driving in from southeast Connecticut, I'm staying over at a nearby hotel, so who knows, there may be an after-party, too!
I'd like to add another house tour segment before the BLOGtoberfest entries. If the camera arrives on time, I should be able to. Any particular requests on what to cover? Probably going inside next time.

House Tour 3 - Alternative siding treatments
I took a ride down to the shore to show you a house that has a little different way of flaring out the siding shingles. I was fortunate enough to catch a really beautiful sunset, which I just had to get some footage of. So, it's less about the architecture than about the sunset, but what the hey...
Hope you enjoy
