I’ll have a really exciting announcement on May 2. It’s in the realm of environmental geology, hydrogeology, data management, GIS, and my all-time most favorite subject, three-dimensional data visualization and numerical computer modeling. So cool. Stay tuned!
Today is my friend Keely’s birthday. She asked for one thing: tell my friends that she is going to walk 60 miles [96.6 km] over 3 days. Why? The Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure fund-raising event for breast cancer research and patient support programs. She’s going to do the walk but she needs to raise an entry goal set at $2,300 [U.S. Dollars]. Her training has already begun. Her 3-Day begins on November 4, 2011. She is hoping to raise $5,000 [or more] in total.
The whole Komen foundation is a big deal. Back when I was in Syracuse it was just sort of catching on but it has exploded in popularity as a charity since then to one of the most respected and trusted non-profit organizations world-wide. More on that in a second. There are many international cities that host Komen events. In fact, a good friend just had her city’s event last weekend. It is truly a world-wide, world-class organization, spanning the globe in 50 some odd countries. Keely will train really hard for the November 3-Day event. 60 miles in 3 days is no easy task, even on pavement.

A change in the geospatial location of a facies does not necessarily impose adverse changes in the biota, environment, or geologic composition of the facies.
We took some damage here across central North Carolina today. A super cell tornado formed over Sanford, North Carolina and traveled north-northeast across the heart of downtown Raleigh. The damage was pretty widespread and moderate to heavy in some places. But all is good here. More of an update tomorrow if I can get access to all the roads and areas closed off.
Want to take better digital photographs of rocks, cars, cities, people, nature, or just about anything? Well if you read some of the articles I do, you’d better have about $30,000 handy, because you’ll need about that much to cover the costs for all the cameras, equipment, and gear I often see for suggestions. That doesn’t help a lot of us that wish they could take better photographs but can really only invest—in terms of money AND time—to the level of a point-n-shoot digital camera.
If you don’t care to capture better photographs and are content with blurry, low-quality party pics, then I suggest you support my sponsors and then close this browser for I just saved you a few minutes of valuable time. If you do seek improvement then stick around and read on. I’m going to provide you with my Five Basic Tips for Better Point-n-Shoot Photography that I believe will dramatically improve the quality and composition of your photographs in a relatively short amount of time and effort on your part. So let’s get started from the bottom up…

Howdy y’all! I hope everyone’s getting ready for the weekend. I wanted take a moment before mine starts to highlight two photography sites for my friends Lacy D and Gary Rea.
Lacy D. Photos is Facebook-based for now. Lacy really enjoys photography of automobiles and just about everything else automotive. She lives in the Southeastern US and down here, we just tend to see a lot more nice cars, cars shows, antiques, and customized cars. What can I say? The weather simply affords it when compared to the “rust buckets” cars become in regions where they put as much road salt down as there is snow.
So check out Lacy D Photos on Facebook: Photog’s (What’s That Behind the Camera?), and catch her on her Twitter page.
Gary Rea in contrast, lives up in the Pacific Northwest. He’s really interested in long exposure photography and light painting. Gary’s concentration centers around nighttime and low-light conditions by default. So, I can really appreciate his work and eyes because I am well-aware of what it’s like haunting the city streets late at night with camera gear.
You can find Gary at Gary Rea Photography
