Videos

Update: I have added to YouTube videos that I took last September on this site and they are located on this page: Video – September 2013 or through the Videos Page (link below).

I’ve added a videos page on this site. Since I have a couple short videos that I wanted to share on this site. I’ll be adding specific pages for the videos by subject and the month when I filmed them.

I’ll be posting the videos on the site during the July 4th weekend and I’ll be sharing more videos on this site when I have made some more.

Have fun on the July 4th weekend everyone (early I know).

An Update

Hello All

During the 4th of July weekend I’m going to add more photographs to this site. The photographs would be on Pages under the Gallery section of this blog. I may work on a few posts that I may do over the weekend to come, I just want to see how much I’m able to write before publishing any posts – besides posting saying that I’ve added more Pages to this site.

There might be one or two things I may add to this blog over the weekend in addition to the photographs. I’ll mention something if I do or not add anything else.

On a side note: I have a few content idea’s on what I want to add to the site, but it’s just a matter of developing these ideas before adding them to the site. It’s just a matter of seeing if the ideas have any workability to them.

Though, I just may keep to blogging and sharing photographs on this site….

I’ll post something when I finally add stuff to this site over the next weekend.

Photographs of Mt. Shasta

Hello All,

I have added a gallery page for the time that I stopped at the Mt. Shasta View Point alone southbound Interstate 5 in Northern California.

This is one of many galleries that I will be adding to this site. When I do add gallery pages I’ll be updating the main Gallery page to show the pages that I’ve added along the what I say on the page.

The Site Title

Hello Folks

I’ll be changing the site title around for the next few weeks. I just want to try something different from Peter’s Thoughts. Also, I may change the tag line too to some degree. I’m going to see how things sound and how things work for the site. I may change things back if nothing sounds right.

The comments will be left open to those who want to comment.

Reading Books

For the longest time I didn’t read books outside of class. I haven’t been able to read anything from any genre that is out there. I have felt down for some time and I wasn’t in any mood or the patience to read any kind of books.

Last September while visiting Lake Tahoe for a month I was able to read 4 books and it took me about 8 days to read through all 4 books.

There is one that I started to read in May 2012 yet I didn’t finish the until last September (2013). Its called “‘Salem’s Lot” by Stephen King and the book is good and it seemed that I was on edge for a few days after I finished the book.

I should know better about reading any books by Stephen King while staying for month in the mountains. Since I tend to read books in the afternoon or into the late evening while up there.

I may or may not post about the books that I read on this site. I may put the title of the books on a page at a later date.

Digitizing Family Photo Albums

This is a small beach and a dead tree.
This is a small beach and a dead tree.

A few hours ago I thought of working on a project that would take some time to do. That project is Digitizing all of my family photo albums that my family has built up over the years. I figured that this would be a way to keep these photos that were taken over time. After scanning each photo, I thought of doing touch up to any photos that would need a touch up.

I know that it would take time to scan each photo into my computer and time to do any touch up to any number of photos. I would assume that doing this would, in a way, keep all the photographs for a long time to come. By doing this I would need a lot of storage space on my computer.

Though it would be sometime before I would actually sit down and do this, since the photo albums are in storage. Once I get everything that I need out of storage and set up a workhorse of a computer then I would start digitizing the photographs.

I doubt that I’ll scan the 8 1/2″ by 11″ pictures, I would defiantly scan the 3″ by 5″ photos into the computer and archive them onto a DVD disk. I, also, thought about putting the photographs onto a gallery style site of some kind some where and have it password protected, so that only a few people can look at the photos. Though, I doubt that I’ll be doing that last thing that I said, giving how many photographs that there are in the albums.

I even thought about turning this into a business of some kind, I may or may not though. A long story for another time.

I may add to this post or I may add a part 2 post at some point. Contact me or leave a comment below if you like to share thoughts about this. It would be a day or two before responding to any comments on posts or through the contact form.
