Although I have taken two days of photographs, I didn't see any purpose in adding them to the video content.
I managed to acquire some clips around the village as I went for a short walk.
Everything on today's blog entry is mostly based on the weekend.
This is a rather interesting live recording as the house band is quite good.
I was waiting at a red signal light the other day and,
in some ways,
it is similar here; soon,
the light turns green and, everything starts moving.
one can be grateful for a situation that occurs.
It is possible to acquire much as one welcomes the opportunity to do so.
I will not act as if I have not been outside for a while; I am simply grateful to have been outside.
Considering that is has been a cold, overcast and, raining Sunday,
it was rather productive.
I did get outside for several hours and,
I observed red pine cones for the first time;
they were not too well photographed but, I will try again soon.
I spent time thinking about what I had on hand to insert into the George Harrison videos.
I did develop some different content, now everyone can see that my office is fully a mess.
I had to work during this pleasantly bright warm Friday.
After work, I went to the Susquehanna river at the AES Westover Generation Plant.
The power plant is abandoned however, this is one of the more scenic locations in the immediate area.
I arrived at about 18:40 and, I was able to work both sides of the river; the sunset occurred on the Westover (power plant) side of the river.
At this time, the Susquehanna River is at a all time low water level since 1910.
Although, the river is always to be considered dangerous, I did enjoy being up close to the running water as I photographed it.
The rail road bridge in the photographs is also abandoned.
Indeed, this is a sizable amount of infrastructure to walk away from!
The generating stations (power plants) at Big Flats, NY and Bainbridge, NY have also been abandoned.
Some attempt is made to describe them as inactive with the potential of being restored if needed.
When I was about eleven years old, I lived on Grand Island, NY.
Technically, we lived closer to the city of Niagara Falls, NY than the city of Buffalo, NY.
My family was not wealthy by any means of the imagination but, we sometimes had a small amount of money to spend here and there.
Over on Military Road in Niagara Falls, a department store was going out of business and there was a very large tent sale in the parking lot.
The area of interest that occupied well over one hour of my time was,
a large assortment of many thousands of LP's.
The price was right at 12 for $1.oo.
Mom bought me $5.oo of LP's!
Farewell to Paradise (1973) by Emitt Rhodes
was one of the dozens of LP's that I brought home and discovered.
Basically, the albums were the 'not as popular' inventory.
Fundamentally, I embarked on a excursion that would broaden my musical horizons.
Today, on this Friday, I finally applied imagery to the song
'Warm Self Sacrifice'.
It is now 34 years since I first heard this song.
I was working on this blog well into Friday morning,
I had to postpone the completion of this until later Friday evening.
The passing of Dick Clark (1929-2012)
is reflected by some of the introduction that he wrote in 1996 for
the Connie Francis CD Box Set 'Souvenirs'.
I never really thought that I would be going up against Gannett Company.
I now realize that this company is not going to achieve any meaningful results in the 21st century, the reality is that anyone with a blog page can significantly contribute to the media on a global basis.
The situation has deteriorated at the Gannett Central New York facility.
So....it is a early Saturday morning,
I have slept for a few hours, I will sleep a few hours more after I post this entry.
I do like the two music videos, both of them have good starts.
There should be reasonably good weather for the weekend, I hope to be out and about with a camera.
A very good weekend to all!!
It was such a pleasant Easter Sunday.
I enjoyed dinner with my mother and two of my uncles.
I walked over to my moms house and, along the way, I stopped at the creek and took quite a few bright photographs with blue water that was cold to the touch.
I arrived at dinner just on time without more than two minutes to spare.
