Three more photos from the Pizza Shoppe today. I need a Rolaids…
During my visit to the Apple Store I took a quick lunch break for some pizza while I waited. i liked the high ceiling and lighting so out comes the trusty old iPhone for the shot. And while i’ve got the photo on the Mac, let’s add some symmetry!
I’ve posted this scene before but this is a different angle. This scene begged to be photographed with the iPhone! Speaking of iPhone, I was in Downtown Summerlin today at the Apple Store trying to turn off that damned Two Step Authentication. It had me locked into a loop in that the verification codes sent to me were always wrong, if they were sent at all.
Long and grumpy story short, as alway the good folks at this location figured the situation out and I was able to close down that function. The gal who helped me acknowledged that there have been issues with this for a while now. What prompted me to enable the Two Step was when very recently Apple released some nice updates for my new MacBook Pro.
I was offered the choice to enable and took it as I also use Two Step for Gmail and this website during logins. But it turned out to be a really bad choice on the iPhone and iPad. Got an iPhone? Stay away from the Two Step Verification. Such a beautiful day today, I’m going to take a long and hot walk in a bit, after eating two huge slices of pizza downtown!
I tried several different settings on my Nikon today, results are OK I guess. Redundant photos…
Just a few photos from the Nikon today. I drove out to Red Rock Canyon, it’s been a week or so and I’ve got some video from there today too. Not surprisingly there are very few people out there for a Saturday with the July Fourth holiday fast approaching. I had a quick text volley with my daughter late today, some of the family is at the lake for the fireworks which are a day or so earlier than the usual early. Wish I were there of course but I’m also happy to be home.
I got the actual date for her purposefully delayed wedding reception for August, more on that in a future post. I’m considering taking my Nikon with me this time as I would really love to capture the best photos I can possibly get for this occasion, it’s really important. And of course I’ll share these photos with you in this space!
I’ve been thinking about my future a good bit lately on several levels. My health has stabilized well regarding my blood pressure, it’s in a stable targeted zone these days. And my A1C (blood glucose) level is well controlled at 6.5 over a ninety day period. Perfect. Life here is good. The bills are paid and I’m considering a short trip later this month depending on funds. But the main thing I’ve pondered is whether I’ll stay on in Las Vegas.
I’m not so sure I could live in Michigan year around anymore. The trips I’ve made up there for the family Christmas have been great except for the weather. It’s bitter cold. I’m not 25 years young these days and have come to truly understand why mature adults choose to migrate to southern latitudes during those winter months!
Hell, it’s 105 degrees outside and I just love it. Winter in Las Vegas isn’t winter to me, it’s more like several months of early autumn weather in a row. And I’ve thought about the kind of house I’d like to own here in the future as well. It’s really amazing to me how my life has changed over the decades. Years ago I’d never have imagined or considered living in the Mojave Desert. Today it appears that while Michigan will always be home, Las Vegas is where I choose to stay.
I snapped these photos on the way home from the pharmacy while stopped at a traffic light. There was a space between some palm trees and bushes where this view could be seen. Another reason I keep my Nikon ready!
