Frances is getting pretty good with the new camera. The pictures look good compressed for these web pages, but look very impressive at full resolution. To top it all off we finally have some snow around here!
Hannah took this great picture on the beach at McLeod Lake. I have now found out that it is a Morning Cloak (Nymphalis Antiopa), and in fact a butterfly.
It’s our 10th Anniversary already!
Here comes the geek. I’ve been using the Mozilla Firefox web broswer for quite some time, and now I’ve switched to Mozzila Thunderbird for email. With the Calendar plugin I’ve said goodbye to M$ Outlook. I’m doing this at work and at home. Here’s a few of the reasons why I did it:
- Tabbed Browsing
- No ActiveX controls
- Great Popup Blocking
- Live Bookmarks (RSS) – If you don’t know what this is “Google” it
- Extensions – great addons to make Firefox the way you like it
- Tabbed Browsing, yes its that good
- Thunderbird – email client
- Blocks embedded images – spammers don’t know you “read” their mail
- Will not run attachments
- Great Junk mail filter
Anyway, I highly recommend these programs. First try Firefox and when you realize that you’re not getting Popups and you get way less spyware and adware than with Internet Explorer you’ll want to try Thunderbird as well. Click the “Take back the web” image at the top to get started.
