This was performed 11/15/2014 at the Marblehead H.S. in Marblehead, Ma.  I have sat and endured many plays staring in Nursery school up to and including High School.  That’s what you do when you are a father of a grandfather.  Last night was an incredible performance by some remarkably talented young men and women.

I had an opportunity to do a timelapse last weekend while staying at Niagara Falls.  We had a view of the falls from the sixth floor and I had an opportunity to put to work my Jobi Gorilla Tripod.  I was amazed that it actually wrapped itself around the railing on the balcony.  My 60D was secure and I went out for dinner.  When I came back my 60gig card was full with over 2000 shots.  Since I didn’t have my laptop I needed to go out and get another card for close up shots of the falls.

I’m at 20,000 feet on the first leg of our flight to Toronro, Canada. First stop is Chicago then Buffalo and an 1 1/2 hours drive in a rented car. Knowing that I live in Portland< Maine why Chicago? I don’t know I didn’t book the flight. The return is trough D.C. I know the reason I don’t fly to Toronto is because it is so more expensive to fly direct and I save enough money that a rental car is not a luxury.

So with Paul Simon playing on my iPad I passing the time with a little writing. About a month ago I installed the wireless Zagg keypad andI must say it is much easier than than using the iPad keyboard except that I lose some of the auto correct and auto fill items. I think next time I will try using MS Word and the blog writing feature.

Anyway The short visit to Toronto is a visit to family and Toronto always offers a lot of great photo ops and on the we back we will stop at Niagara Falls. Judy has never been and I think Judy will like the Maid of the Mist ride. It is always exciting to go so close to the falls and experience the the power of and the beauty of being so near.
