Watch the New Mobile Home Appear

In general, “moving house” means that a person is moving out of their current place of residence and is about to start living in a different location.

In a mobile home park, “moving house” literally means that an old mobile home is being taken away so that a new one can be put in its place. In this blog, I have photos (most of which were taken by Shawn) of a new double-wide mobile home being put in next door to us.

Instagram Photo Project: Food and Politics

Looking back, it seems that there were two main themes to the photos I posted on Instagram in March.  One of them was food.  I have a ton of food allergies, so when I find something that is safe for me to eat (and that tastes good) I celebrate it.

The other theme was politics.  I’ve been paying close attention to the presidential primary / caucus “season” this year.  The inane words of a particularly orange candidate inspired me to create little drawings that could be described as political cartoons.

The photos you se...

Watch the Mobile Home Disappear

Shawn and I live in a mobile home park. Life here is a bit different than what one would experience in an actual house or in an apartment.

When people decide that their current home is insufficient, they attempt to sell it. They “move house”. In a mobile home park, when a home has become unsuitable – the house moves.

Realizing that this is a rather unique situation, I decided to take photos of the mobile home next door as it was being prepared for removal. I’ve also got a few photos of what the lot looked like after the mobile home was taken away.

These photos were taken...

Instagram Photo Project: Happy Moments

I took a whole lot of Instagram photos in February of 2016. Some of them were part of my photo project. I turned 42 years old, realized that 42 was “the answer to life, the universe, and everything” and set out to find the questions.

In addition, I started taking photos that were unrelated to the initial project. (Those photos will appear in a separate blog.)

Instagram Photo Project: Start of a New Year

Life got super busy in January, so I didn’t end up taking too many photos. These photos are part of my Instagram photo project which began when I turned 42. The number 42 is “the answer to life, the universe, and everything”. The photos are the answers. I leave a comment that explains what the question was.

The photos you see in this blog are from December 30, 2015, January 7, January 12, January 16, and January 28, 2016.

Instagram Photo Project: Celebrations

The last two months of the year are filled with celebrations (and all the work and stress that comes with them). For me, it is extra difficult because of the added allergens. My way of coping with it was to take photos of the things that were worth celebrating (even if the only thing to celebrate was that I survived an allergen encounter).

The photos that you see in this blog were taken on November 2, November 5, November 13, November 18, November 20, November 22, November 23, November 24, November 25, November 27, December 3, December 4, December 6, December 9, December 10, December 12, December 13, December 15, December 16, and December 17, 2015.

Heroes of the Storm: Leveling Up

Heroes of the Storm is a fun game that I’m hoping to play more of in 2016. I have a tendency to play a few matches, and then go back to Diablo III. By the time I return to Heroes of the Storm, I’ve forgotten which buttons do what. If I played more frequently, this wouldn’t happen.

One of the problems I’m having with blogging about Heroes of the Storm is that I don’t seem to have a whole lot to say about the game. I haven’t played enough to offer new insights about specific Heroes, and I always play with an A.I. team (and against an A.I. team). This keeps things simple – but doesn’t give me a lot to write about.

I’ve decided to start posting blogs that show my progress as I’m leveling up my Heroes (and my Player Level).

There is another issue that is making it difficult for me t...

Instagram Photo Project: Fall Photos

My Instagram project started the day I turned 42 years old. I realized that 42 was “the answer to life, the universe, and everything“, so I set out to find the answers. The photos show what the answer was, and I post the questions as a comment. The 42 best photos are going to eventually end up in a photo book.

The photos in this collection were taken during the Fall. Some actually look like Fall, and others were just whatever happened to be the answer at that moment. These photos were taken on October 2, October 4, October 14, October 15, October 24, and October 25, 2015.

Instagram Photo Project: Studio Move 2015!

Every so often, Shawn and I feel the need to move our studio from one room to another. Our home is small, so the “studio” consists of our computers, microphones, other electronics, and the furniture they sit on. It’s the stuff we use to do the writing, podcasting, editing (etc.) work that pays the bills.

In this blog, I have all of the photos I took while Studio Move 2015 was in progress. I wrote captions in the form of an answer, and comments that reveal the question (to match the rest of my Instagram project). The photos in this blog were taken on October 17, October 18, October 19, October 20, October 24, October 26, October 30, October 31, and November 1, 2015.

The studio move itself is physically difficult...

Instagram Photo Project: Scattered September

My Instagram Photo Project started on my 42nd birthday. I realized that 42 was “The Ultimate Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything“. My plan was to see what answers would appear. The photos are the answers, and I left a comment that explained what each question was.

The photos you see in this blog were taken on September 4, September 5, September 7, September 8, September 12, September 14, September 15, September 18, September 21, September 22, September 24, and September 29, 2015.
