The View I Choose to See on a Daily Basis [May. 15th, 2015|07:05 am]
Tomas Gallucci
It's been a while since I updated. And it will take even longer for me to make a proper update. But for now, I wanted to leave these photos here for your viewing pleasure.

The first two photos are the view I see when I pull into my "driveway". They were taken last November, shortly after I moved in.

Gorgeous. What a relaxing get-away from the hustle bustle of work.

You're not just whistling Dixie. Sadly there are developments that I haven't blogged about that make me want to get away from work permanently.Well, at least the current job.

That's amazing! Those views certainly make coming home an event. You're fortunate! Waiting on tenterhooks for your long overdue update (as I am, too) but in the meantime... who's your 2016 horse?

Re: Views

Thank you, Sir!

Yes, I enjoy being home in the evening when the sun is going down, driving into to that view and when the humidity isn't 1000% going for a walk around the lake.

Blogging and Updates

Please do write soon. I have been curious to know what you and yours have been up to for the past good while now. I think the time has finally come to spill the beans.

P.S. I have observed that you've always utilized the Subject field on LJ when leaving comments.I'm not sure how I feel about it. It's always been annoying as we thread deep into a conversation. But it does, sometimes, give context, especially if the reply volley of comments are quite delayed from the original comment or if something is being mentioned from a comment higher up in the thread.

Re: Views

I haven't been paying all that much attention to this cycle.

I did like Ben Carson for a while–I specifically liked the strategy that the Run, Ben, Run! superpac had: if Carson was on the top of the ticket in the general, they thought heh would pull enough votes from Hillary and therefore she couldn't become President.

I heard Carson's CPAC 2013 speech and I wasn't impressed. I was so underwhelmed, in fact, I was ashamed and disappointed I had been on that bandwagon for so long.

I like the idea of a firebrand of Cruz on the top of the ticket, but I'm not convinced he would make a good executive. And I'm not sure he'd tow the line either.

I certainly don't like Christie. With enough coaxing, I could probably get behind Jeb, but I'd certainly vote for anyone else before I voted for Jeb.

I can't believe that Huckabee is running yet again. That's just dumb.

I could probably get behind Rubio, but I can't get behind his amnesty lite program.

Frankly, my money is on Scott Walker right now. I think he's certainly electable and an able politician given that he survived a re-call and then got re-elected immediately afterwards. I think he has made the right moves in Wisconsin. I think he may be a little too socially liberal for my tastes. Maybe a Walker/Jindal ticket?

I wish that the DOJ would prosecute Hillary for all the money her and her family have laundered.

Do you think George Stephanopoulos should be the moderator at the debate given that he donated an undisclosed $70K to the Clinton Foundation?

I would comment on how the iphone6 really takes good photos but I fear this would start you on an apple rant :P

What lovely views you have :) I hope that the views help you to relax and contemplate the meaning of life etc. when things get tough? I find good views do do that!

I will say that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus do have an image processor right behind the sensor who's only job is to make the pictures you take look even better. You point the phone at the subject, compose the shot and the machine does all the rest making you look like a pro. Granted, with such a subject matter as I've showcased above, the picture really does take itself.

That having been said, the iPhone 6 is not a wundercamera. In the golden shots, the moon was quite visible in the sky to the naked eye. I think I could have done a better job capturing the moon had I had my bigger camera, although i'm not sure that I would have gotten the exposure right. So it's a bit of a give and take.

The views are lovely; you should come see them in person!

The views and, more specifically, the walking track around the lake came in handy during the week I took off after the "incident" (let's not speak of it in public.) Sadly though, there is still no real resolution to that story.

Yep, I KNEW that commenting on the iphone6 would be a mistake :P

Harketh! There be life down south!

I'll never live this down, because I'm terrible about not blogging anymore, but I was honestly beginning to think something had happened to you, like injury or heaven forbid, death since you wouldn't answer the phone when I called or texts or e-mails.

Very glad to know you're still alive. :-)

As to your post, looks like you've moved up in the world from where your former apartment was located. Rather ritzy neighborhood compared to some of the housing divisions I've seen elsewhere. Good job Furbie! :-)
