I am making a switch in where I host the video's that I make..They are all shows for guests, friends and family, but I always find with You tube, the quality is not there and I hate watching the nice pictures I take be chopped down to such a small size for you tube...
Now, I may chance my mind when I am in the islands trying to upload these! but I am giving VIMEO a try. You can watch my video's on there, and download for friends and family if you like...
So, the SD version is up and the HD version will be ready in 8 minutes. Not that I am impatient!
Here is the link to it on VIMEO, which if you have the fast internet (mother!) you should be able to watch it in HD and download it. Please let me know if it works!
This is what I did today for my mother in law et al on her trip from Australia to SoCal to UK and back again...
Since I am trying a new video site, I am also embedding it here to see what it looks like....
My mother in law immigrated from the UK to Australia back in 1967. She left dozens of siblings and relatives behind. She went with her husband and children. This is the first time she has left Australia since then and made the trek to California to see us, then we took her back to the UK to see her relatives. None too soon. It was a real pleasure putting together this video of our trip and stay. I am hoping by putting this up here, family and friends can get a higher quality video and share the memory with us. This is for the Harkers, Hammonds, Surrmans and Coopers in the UK and Australia. It was a pleasure to meet you all. This is especially for my mother in law though!
This is neat, there is a RSS feed you can use for getting my videos by using this! Video RSS feed
And I stayed up late editing the one for my mom and dad too.. So here it is..
The companion edition for my mother in laws video I did is this one that I did for my parents of the "rest of the trip", this allowed me to break it up in two shorter videos...there are also plenty of old cars in here for my father and brother
Starting to get homesick for my other home.... I am watching my old videos now..
Trying to get pictures of the hummingbirds coming to my feeder is a slow process. They are skittish!
Said I would make Bushwackers for a do coming up this weekend. Went to Costco to pick up some liquor, surmising I probably needed all three of these....
Looked in my cupboard above the fridge and apparently I think there is going to be a national shortage on baileys and Kahlua..I think I have enough to get me through the first few charters too with bushwackers!
I firmly admit it, I have been posting less on my personal blog. it has taken much less of my time to throw them up in an album on Facebook along with a comment or few while I am editing the pictures then to double post them on here.
I think all my pictures from the UK and Belgium are on there, so I may just make those albums public and if you want to see the pics, you know where to go. Not that Facebook isn't pissing off more then a few with all their changes and privacy concerns, but I share so much on here, it would be rare that there would be something on there that I would not share with anyone and everyone...expect perverts!
If you are on facebook, find me there...
While we were over in the UK I purchased one of the dutch gin bottles that we have many of under water in the islands. I was so surprised to see that they must have had glaze on them as none of the ones I pulled out of the water did!
My bedroom tv is starting to look a bit complex. We upgraded the DVR in there, then, I bought an Apple TV so I could watch that in bed as well as the Living Room..THEN we bought and installed a sling box, with the hope of MAYBE being able to see some of our Directv down on the boat. When/if I have a decent internet connection. Hope springs eternal doesn't it?
My poor husband, it is not often that he is allowed to eat a meal in peace. In fact, I think I have a great talent for taking pictures when he would least like me to take them. You should be glad that you don't live with me!
This is pretty much what he thinks about the whole camera thing..AND he semi cheerfully goes back to get it when I leave it in the car, or makes sure I have all my covers and lenses with me..
Of course, others eating with me are not spared either..My parents look a bit daunted at the food in front of them...
My dad did say that he got to eat in some pretty awesome places though from hanging around with me so maybe that is worth the pictures? This was in the Centre de Ville in Mons, Belgium..
Occasionally, I find a stupid one of me...This was at the dentists...How come if you live in SoCal you need such white teeth? I have found myself looking at teeth picking out the ones who have veneers etc since living here. Fairly pathetic..
My mother with her great granddaughter is equal partys cute and funny.She will show anyone, and if there is no one around, herself, pictures of her baby at the drop of a hat. I did have to laugh at my sister playing mummy for the weekend with strollers and such when we all met up last weekend did my heart good smirking a little..
I told Bazza he could stay home without me putting anything else on the social calendar this coming month...well besides a couple trips to the east coast for concerts and class reunions! The poor man will think being on charter is a breeze after all this come November..
