Dress Rehersal

*Video taken by Cloudia of Comfort Spiral. What's amazing is that she took the video with a Fuji FinePix A220 ($89 at Walmart) which has been described on camera review sites "as barebones as it can get." "Barebones" might be meant for a limited range of adjustment options on the camera, but obviously, it doesn't apply to the cability of the lens, itself. Also, the camera allows you to zoom in while in video mode which is not a feature available on all compact cameras as far as I know. I still can't get over the relative high resolution of the video on a YouTube video even without enabling the HQ option. My compact camera cost me over twice as much as Cloudia's Fuji A220 and its videos were never as sharp. Goes to show you that price doesn't always equate to "better." And you're correct that perhaps I really don't know everything about using cameras, but that's for another post.

This is just not fair. I went outside (30°F) to scatter some bird seed on the ground and noted that their water dish had totally frozen over. Poor things will probably complain to the other birds in the forest, and say that they'll have to look elsewhere for H20.

Rowena- I been post this one especially for you, LOL. On another note, the big problem we've been having in honolulu is we're all out of trees. The agriculture inspectors sent a few containers back early in the season, so that might have something to do with the lack of.
