I ditched my own photo gallery and went to Flickr photo gallery in order to display my photographs with better resolution. I liked my photo gallery, but the images that were uploaded to this website were not the greatest.

This is my new Apple Computer setup that I finally put on computer desk. I am really digging this computer compared to my iMac Pro computer which still is a good computer. The only real con is the lack of USB-C ports on the MBP, but Apple has always been stingy on putting ports on their computers. That's OK as I will figure something out and the blazing fast speed of this computer is amazing. The M1 Arm Chip is diffidently a game changer for Apple and I think Intel should be a little bit worried about Apple if they want to stay competitive in the future. This is just my opinion. I still can't get over how fast Applications are on this computer as I remember the good old days where you could practically take a nap waiting for an App to open up. Using Photoshop now is so much easier now with this MBP and the Philips 279P monitor really does the laptop justice when using it on a computer desk. I was doing some research online to find an affordable monitor and I almost pulled the trigger on another monitor (I can't remember the brand). However, it wasn't in stock and they were expecting a 3 - 4 week "delay" and I wasn't going to play that waiting game again. The Philips 279P had good reviews, but it isn't rank that high compared to other monitors. People have knock it for not being bright enough, but I really don't understand that as this monitor is plenty bright enough in my opinion. This is probably not a gaming monitor, but I really would not know as I'm using it for an Apple MBP and I don't game all that much. The monitor has an USB port that is capable of charging devices and I added a USB docking station that gives me four USB ports. Then I just plug a USB-C cable into my UPS to charge my iPad Pro every night. This is hands down the best computer setup that I have own so far and that is coming from a person who was happy with the iMac Pro.

It's a hot one outside as it got to 91 F and the hot weather is supposed to be with us for the next 7 to 8 days. This hot weather really doesn't make me want to doing anything, but I have managed to clean the bathroom up the last couple of days. Though it's a small bathroom which helps in that regards. I have to call Binson's Medical Supplies as my CPAP machine is not working right as the mask isn't getting a good seal. I have to get a new mask anyways as this one was a little too tight as it is. I was just to lazy to get a better fitting one, but on the bright side I shouldn't have that stupid red mark on my nose anymore. Hopefully, I can get the parts tomorrow as I really like using the CPAP machine for my Sleep Apnea.

I went to the dentist today to get my teeth cleaned and once again I have NO cavities. This really saves on me not having to get fillings done and that is a good thing as it is also good on the pocket book. Well, today is my sister's birthday who is 5 years older than I am and I turn 57 this August 28. Where have all the years gone? My late mother was right that life is short and fleeting, so make the best of it while you are on this good old Earth.

This is just a start of my new layout of LEGO Pepsterville as I am just under halfway done with it. I want to buy a few more table for the city, but I want to get the heart of the downtown done first. I eventually want to put a train that goes around it to make it look like a small town city.

I'm in the process of changing my LEGO city to a new layout and I'm also updating my administration page on my website. Well, I'm going downstairs to continue to work on my new layout for Pepsterville, but that's if I can stand being cold down there with the A/C on.

Well, I hit a snag as the pictures are a little too large for mobile devices. I'm seeing if I lower the quality down just a tad to see if the pictures will load faster. Hopefully, this will solve the problem as I will hate to use smaller size pictures.

I have improved my online trivia game where if the database table doesn't load then a couple of questions that is hard coded into the application. That way the game will still work while the database table is offline. I have been meaning to do that for awhile now and it was relatively easy to do.

Well, I am finally getting my gallery page the way that I want it and this website is really looking nice in my opinion. I still have a lot I want to do with it. However, it's a nice place to showcase my photography and website developing/designing skills. I have come a long way since the early 2000s in making websites and I will be able to focus more of my time on improving my photography skills. I just wished I had done this in my 20s and 30s, but you are never to old to learn something new.

Well, I redid my home page on my website as I wanted to make it look a little more cleaner and professional looking. I really have come a long way in the development and design when it comes to making a website. The nice thing about it is when I am finished I will be able to easily transport 99 percent of the code and HTML over to another website. Then all I will have to do is modify the CSS to fit that design of the website. Using grids and flex really simplifies this and cuts down on the file size making it easier to change to the design I want.

Wednesday should had been a Monday for me as nothing went right for me. I still haven't received my Federal Tax Refund and it took 2 hours only to tell me that it might be another 10 weeks before it's processed. If I don't hear back from the IRS to give a call back in 30 days. The only one I won't write about as it is very personal in nature and I will only say I am going to have more patience. I am not going to write any more as I am in a bad mood.
