FULL WOLF MOON at exactly 5 a.m. CST on January 26, 2013
Saturday, January 26, 2013 - 11:38 p.m. EST - The full moon of January is called the Wolf Moon. Its Cree name is Gishepapiwatekimumpizun, meaning "moon when the old fellow spreads the brush." Other names are Moon After Yule, Ice Moon and Old Moon. In Hindi it is known as Paush Poornima. Its Sinhala (Buddhist) name is Duruthu. The full moon rises around sunset and sets around sunrise, the only night in the month when the moon is in the sky all night long. The rest of the month, the moon spends at least some time in the daytime sky.
      When I came downstairs this morning around 4:30 a.m., I could see the moon shining in the western facing windows.  It was so bright and gorgeous!  So, I decided to take a picture with my telephoto lens.  As you can see, it came out perfectly.  later, djb

Here's the driveway after the BIG snowstorm (less than one inch) this morning.
Friday, January 25, 2013 - I ventured out to get the newspapers through the snow drifts.  You can see my hoof prints in the driveway.  At least it looks pretty and bright.  I'm going to pretend that it's sand at the beach.  sigh....later, djb

    Here it is:  5:05 a.m on 1/24 - 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit outside and 63.0 degrees F (inside)
Thursday, January 24, 2013 - This is what the thermometer looked like this morning when I came downstairs.  The wireless transmitter that is outside must be very cold.  At least, it isn't BELOW zero.  Snowed just a little. djb

This is the thermometer outside the garage door.  I figured out that it's 5 degrees.  Brrrrr
Tuesday, January 22, 2013- Thought I'd take a picture of the thermometer showing how COLD it is here in NORTHERN Illinois.  WOW!  That reminds me....I think I'll put the one that goes with my automatic thermometer outside so I can see how cold it really is and I won't have to go out there.  Believe me, it is very, very, very cold.  If I were Denny and Avis, I'd stay in Florida.  haha  icicle ya later, djb

Here's Marc playing the guitar and Steady is on the drums at Holly and Dolly's in May 2012.

Friday, January 11, 2013 - Happy Birthday to Marc.  In honor of his birthday, I'm putting on a musical video I shot.  Yeah, it's a little grainy but it's still awesome! bye, djb

This camera (Kodak C875) was sitting on a shelf in the computer room minding its own business when I discovered it -- I didn't even know it was missing!
Wednesday, January 2, 2013 - Yesterday, I was looking for something else and I came across this camera (up above) that I had retired from usage a few years ago.  It is still in perfect condition. Thankfully, I had taken the batteries out of it so there was no leakage from those.
    This was a New Year's Day miracle!  oh boy!!  later, djb
