who knew vhs

VHS (Video Home System) is a widely-adopted videocassette recording ( VCR ) technology that was developed by Japan Victor Company (JVC) and put on the market in 1976. It uses magnetic tape 1/2 inch (1.27 cm) in width. Originally, the abbreviation VHS stood for Vertical Helical Scan, and was later changed as the technology gained in popularity.

Figured out something new on my tablet PC

I haven't had my Dell Latitude tablet for very long, just long enough that I feel pretty comfortable using it. But not so long that I know all there is to know about it. It's fun to discover something new every now and again.

Did a morning run with a buddy for an hour

Went out for lunch at this new restaurant with friends

Good food with good company

Walked at lunchtime

What a treat it was during my lunch hour today to venture outside and walk around the man-made lake behind the library. There I saw a blue heron fishing alongside a father and his two small kids, a couple of older guys with their remote controlled sailboats, which were just beautiful gliding on the surface of the lake. An older couple and their grown daughter sharing a picnic and a small flock of new ducklings and their mama happily swimming along. Not only did I get a great walk in but I got a great big dose of happy in the process!
