My wonderful wife bought me a new 21.5" iMac for my birthday. It is speedy, slick, and has all sorts of nifty features (hardware virtualization!). But all is not rosy, because while people like to think that setting up an Apple computer is a breeze, it takes awhile to get your environment configured if you're as set in your ways as I am. Here's a quick list of applications I can't live without.
On Sunday, October 18th, I went to Tom Brooks' and Jim Reed's underground musical lair to take photos of the duo singing and playing their guitars. Their producer, Jodee, ran the soundboard and graciously didn't object too strenouosly to being photographed (actually she objected a lot, but I am selectively deaf). I had a lot of fun during the shoot, and I think I got some nice photos.
Jen and I partook of the 2009 Lititz Chocolate Walk. The Walk is a fundraiser, with the proceeds going to local Lititz charities like the children's hospital and the library.
This past Sunday (Sept 6th) my Mom suggested we go to Virginia and hike up Old Rag Mountain in Shenandoah National Park. What could possibly be wrong with getting outside and seeing a little nature?
On Thursday, August 6th, Jen and I drove to Hershey, PA for the 2009 Joyce Meyer Conference. Joyce is a Christian inspirational speaker, with plenty to say about living a Christian life.
