WiFi

Okay Doctor Who Fans, I have a real experience for you. This happened to my Co-Worker this morning on the way to work. She was listening to Songza at the bus stop when the following showed up on her cell phone WiFi.

Okay I have to say that it would creep me out a little. It especially crept out my co-worker since she just watched the episode the night before.

So harmless crazy doctor who fan? Or is there something in the wifi?

You decide 🙂

Wraps Bachelorette Style

Here’s a quick easy recipe for all you bachelorettes (or bachelors). 

Ingredients:

Wraps (I used the Sun-dried tomatoes wraps)
Roasted chicken (one you can get from a grocery store)
Bagged Salad (or a head of lettuce)
Sweet Chili Sauce

Take slices of roasted chicken, some of the bagged salad and drizzle sweet chili sauce on a wrap. Fold the wrap. 

Voila 

Anyway I made this simple recipe and it was my lunch for 4 days.

Cream Corn… Anyone?

I have a new recipe that I have tried from Pinterest. This recipe is for Cream Cheese Corn. Here is the link from the original recipe. 

http://www.thetwobiteclub.com/2013/11/baked-cream-cheese-corn-with-crumbled.html?m=1

The only change I did was add Okra to the dish. Here are the ingredients. 

 

  • 4 cans Libby’s whole kernel corn, drained
  • 12 slices bacon, split
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 2 – 8 ounce packages cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or melted butter
  • About 15 okra cut into pieces

I added the Okra as I added the Cream Cheese to the skillet. 

I have to say this is my first real time saute onions in butter and not burning them. Worked really well. 🙂 That is my real proud moment. 

Anyway this was a great recipe as an alternative to Cream Corn. I brought it to a wedding and it went really quickly. I almost didnt get any. 

Enjoy!

Seeing the Milky Way through my Camera

I was able to take my first night photos last week while in British Colombia. I was so excited! I worked for about an hour at about 1 AM.  But I was able to get some good shoots. I have put all the shots that I did so you can see the good, the bad and the ugly.
I like learning from all my shots. I hope this helps anyone else that wants to learn too. A couple of notes about some conditions of taking these photos. I don’t have a remote yet for my bulb setting on my DSLR. So some of my shakiness may have come through. Unfortunately I was near some houses and a gravel company so its not the best for the lighting of the ground.

Another issue, when I reimaged my photos through Picasa it changed the colouring of the photos a little. All the pictures seem to have gotten lighter and a little orange.  I don’t know how to fix this. Hopefully I can figure out how to fix it for my website.

I have put all my main settings below each photo so you know the details as well.

I want to thank the blog Leanne Cole Photography . I was able to get the recipe of night photography from her blog.

The recipe is: ISO – Greater than 3200, F-stop as low as you can go, and exposure time 30 seconds.

Funnish Fact for the Day

So while searching the internet about Tornadoes I came across an article about myths of things to do in protecting yourself from tornadoes. One of them being is opening your windows to equalize pressure. Apparently this is a myth. And now that I read about it, I feel stupid for even believing it. Reason being its a myth? Because its a TORNADO, If its crossing your path, its going to send debris through your house no matter what. Plus you are wasting time and could put yourself in danger if you go to open a window when there is a warning.

Why did I not think of this before?

Another myth that I know I was taught in school is about how the southwest corner of the basement is the safest place during a tornado. Again, when you think about it, it totally makes sense that it is a myth. Its a Tornado, no matter which way it comes from its going to through debris anywhere.

Here are the articles I found.

On a completely side note of crappy information, I found this one site that said to stay in your car. This I know is not a fact. DO NOT EVER stay in your car during a tornado.

Moral of this story: Question everything and do your own research!
