Photographs & memories *

Clems Christmas, 1962 In today's Staunton News Leader, retired editor Fred Pfisterer talks about how someone in his family dug out their old slides and transferred them onto a computer with a scanner, and then burned them onto DVDs as gifts to help in sharing old memories. I used my iMac and a scanner to do the same thing a couple years ago (onto CDs, that is), though I only scratched the surface of my grandfather's slide archives. For anyone who is lucky enough to possess such a treasury of photographic records, in slides or in print, I highly recommend taking the time to do likewise. Presented for your amusement is the Clem family at Christmas, 1962. That's me in the space helmet. On the floor is the board game "Video Village," based on a TV game show.

* That's the name of an old Jim Croce song.

Taking a cue from some other "photo-bloggers," I have put together a new photo gallery page:
Best photos of 2005. Not surprisingly, many of the 25 visual gems are from our trip to Costa Rica, including several colorful birds. I touched up a few of them by enhancing the sharpness.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
