Google Eye Glasses

Holy Cow, this is totally interesting! Kind of weird, especially seeing something like this so soon in my life time (It looks like something from Back to the Future). In some ways I am kind of worried, because people are already glued to their iPhones, etc… won’t this cause people to be distracted ALL THE TIME?? and wouldn’t someone wearing these while, say… walking or driving, possibly get hit by a car or run into something/someone because they were watching what is in front of their face on the screen rather than in real life?

Yes it is cool, but it’s still weirding me out and also worrisome…

The Love Letter

The Love Letter

This is about an old love letter found underneath some linoleum in an old house. A marriage proposal.

They say lighting doesn’t strike the same place twice, but these bolts have bombarded the same area over eleven hair-raising minutes.

Each individual lightning bolt pounds the ground with an average power of one billion volts, so the force of dozens of bolts a second over more than ten minutes can barely be imaged.

Tour guide, Roch Hart, 52, took these incredible shots from his roof in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, just two miles away from the lightning strikes.

“After a day of tours I noticed this storm develop,” said Roch.

“Realizing the potential I ran to the roof, stationed the camera on my tripod and began taking photos. The storm was unleashing all its power only in one area.

“Due to Albuquerque’s high altitude of over 5,200 feet, plus the very dry atmosphere and moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, the conditions were right for multiple lightning strikes in a short time.”

Over 200 people a year are killed in the US by lightning strikes, and New Mexico is often the state with the most deaths.

Roch explained why be had to be careful when taking these awesome pictures.

“You take every precaution to not be that highest object, yet it is possible to still be hit,” he said.

“The scariest moments are at night when you can’t see the storm developing over your head.

“All of a sudden a very bright light with amazing power conveyed by the clap of thunder makes you dive to the ground, then gather up your stuff and head for cover.

“The power and sound is very exhilarating and with each strike you capture you want more.

“Photographing lightning has become a passion. Someday I would hope to travel the world in capturing lightning.”

No wonder we had such a “hair-raising” night.

SNOW!!! April 3, 2012

The past 24 hours here in Albuquerque have brought us an estimated .72inch of precipitation and 1.6 inches of snow. (At least that’s what weather.com says). All I know is it has been coming down continuously in one form or another since around 7 or 8 last night. =) I LOVE IT!!! It isn’t sticking, and it’s beautiful!!! We are all very grateful that we have warm, dry shelter and transportation, and we pray for those who are less fortunate than we are. I am sitting here looking out the window at the snow just coming down! How truly blessed we are to have this beautiful world and all that is in it. I am jealous of my hubby, he has today off, so he’s snuggled up at home reading a book and watching the snow. Lol. But at least I have a big window to look out at it and enjoy! I have heard many people today say, “It’s nasty out there!” But I like to say, “It’s beautiful out there! But please be safe!” I hope you are all safe and dry and enjoying this beautiful day as much as I am! What a wonder the world is! =)


Families Can Be Together Forever

This is one of my favorite songs, and one that means a great deal to me. I KNOW that my Family can be together forever if we are obedient and faithful to the Lord and his commandments. I am so very grateful and blessed for this knowledge and confort in my life. I love my family with all my heart, soul, and being. We strive daily so that we can be with eachother forever. =)


I Am a Child of God

This is my Mom’s favorite song, and continues to be one of mine. It is such a blessing to know WHO WE ARE eternally and infinitly, WHERE WE CAME FROM before we were born, and WHY WE ARE HERE on this earth.
