What’s Up?

For today’s post, I bring you a photo gallery of a nice group of wader birds. These photos are from my last trip to Florida. They are so incredible beautiful avians, I enjoy the photo shoots when they are the subjects.

Mac Attack

Believe it or not, I’ve been working very hard since my MacBook started acting up. The problem got worse to a point that I wasn’t sure if I could have the Mac working before I received a new iMac and migrate all the info. I could get only a few minutes out at the time from the old Mac. It would heat up and then shut off. So I transferred a few files here and there, I spent many hours of boring work, luckily I retrieved most of the data and image archives using an auxiliary hard drive. It’s not easy under these conditions. I’ve done migrations before, but with no problems whatsoever. Now I’m organizing my files from the ground up and will be back in business soon or so I hope… Sigh.

Important Note: I’m having some serious difficulties with my Mac, that prevents me from retrieving photos from the hard drive and some other important information. My blogging has been slowed down to almost zero. I have a great deal of data to recover from the hard drive yet. I’ll do my best to avoid skipping any posts or viewing yours too. Thank you! – H.J.
