Everyone from around the world was invited to submit videos, including home videos, of the life around them on Saturday, July 24, 2010. That’s a very large concept! With over 80,000 submissions and 4500 hours of […]

Saguaro Costume

My 12 year old daughter has come up with some of the most interesting Halloween costumes over the years. Since she has been old enough to decide her own costumes, she’s been: a black cat (twice), Laa-Laa (from Teletubbies), Madeline, a spotted bat, a computer (with working parts), a Borg, and a scarecrow. But this […]

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Arizona

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is in southern Arizona, right on the U.S./Mexico border. My family and I have been wanting to go there for a while and we recently had the opportunity. What surprised us the most was how few people we saw (only one other vehicle on the 22 mile loop). I was […]

T-Shirts, Clocks, and More

We’ve tried Zazzle, Cafe Press, and the several other online t-shirt stores. They each have their own pros and cons. For the most part, I keep going back to Cafe Press and Zazzle. I absolutely love the postage stamps I’ve made through the Zazzle website with my very own photographs and computer designs. Tip: Sign […]

Saguaro Fruit Harvesting

My family and I live on an acreage south of Tucson, Arizona. We are fortunate enough to have land with many mature saguaros (as evidenced by many of my photographs on this site). We’ve owned our land for four years and we’ve lived on it for slightly over two. In those years, we’ve never quite […]
