Well, it's hard to believe that it is the end of the month. There is a cold spell that will be covering Michigan the next couple of days then it will really start to warm up (I hope). The Detroit Tigers start the baseball season tomorrow and the weather at game time is only going to be 34F. They say it's the coldest opening day in 36 years and all I know is the lucky fans that are able to attend the game are not going to be so lucky. I might watch the game, but I probably won't as I really haven't been into sports this year. I am trying to walk at least 3 miles a day, but had to take a break as I have a big old blister on my right foot that broke open yesterday. It was killing me last night and didn't feel all that great today, so I did to take a day off. I really need to find better shoes, but I am having a hard time find my size. One more week and I get my second Covid-19 vaccine shot. I will be glad when that is over with, but we all still need to be careful as there are still plenty of people that need to get vaccinated. I just hope there are not too many people who decide not to get it, but I think most will.

It's going up to 63 F today here in Livonia, Mi and later on I will go for my daily walk. I am contemplating in wearing shorts this afternoon, but I will make my decision based on the current temperature. I am pretty positive that I have finally found the design of my website and my content management system (CMS) is working good (knocking on wood). I think during the week that I will start working on my trivia game that is here on this website and I might add a registration system so people can add questions to the trivia game.

I stopped going to church a long time ago, but when I did it was at St. Michael's. The Roman Catholic Church is giving the church a facelift and I have to say so far it is looking pretty darn good. I think it was a good time for them to do this with COVID-19 happening as there wouldn't had been too many people going to church anyways. As for this website, I have been updating and making improvements to this site. I will never stop working on it, but I hopefully have the overall design of this website done. I am trying to make the site look professional and have the links make sense to people visiting. I am going to be adding more content and finally start improving my photography trivia game. I have a lot of things already done for the quiz, but right now it is in the background. I need to add a registration system in order for the quiz to really full shine. I will be also adding a photogallery of my work and hope to get that up as well.

I went for a walk today and wanted to take pictures of the big houses that are being built where the old Rosedale Elementary School used to be. Those houses are big and I really don't think they fit to well with the existing houses in Rosedale Gardens subdivision. Though they might look a little different once they are 100 percent completed, but the house on the right looks almost all done. This is only about a 1/2 mile away from my house. I heard the existing neighbors really didn't want these house to be built and I can say I don't blame them. However, money talks and obviously the City of Livonia cares more about money than what current residents of the neighborhood think and feel about it.

I getting there with the website and I getting back to walking to lose weight. The last couple of weeks I have been watching what I have been eating and the last 6 days I have gotten back to walking. I purchased an Lectric eBike Step-thru that will be coming in then 3 to 6 weeks. The maximum weight limit is 275 lbs and I have to lose another 35-37 lbs as of right now. Losing weight at 56 is no fun, but I hopefully will squeeze a few more years out of this body. As for the website I am getting there, but I have a ways to go until it is done and I'm satisfied with the site.

Well, I finished the LEGO Medieval Blacksmith set and I really like it. Well, other than the tree as I think LEGO could had done better with the tree. Don’t get me wrong the tree is nice looking, but the apples look to nice to be on that tree? However, I’m not a tree expert, so I might be all wet. I want to put this in my LEGO city, but It isn’t a modular build and it might look out of place. I will figure it out as I really do like this set.

Darn, Meteorologists had to be correct in their forecast for today! On the bright side I have a snowblower!

This website also deals with Photography and I am a big time Sony Alpha Camera photographer. I like Sony cameras which seems like an odd choice as most people are familiar with Cannon or Nikon as camera brands. My favorite type of photography is wildlife especially take pictures of birds. I can't wait until warmer weather where I can sit outside to take pictures of birds in fight (BIF) as those type of shots are cool looking, but one of the tougher shots to capture just right. I plan of setting up a photo gallery of my favorite shots pretty soon on this website. Stay tune for updates that are happening soon!

I have redone my pagination links and hopefully they are working properly. I'm pretty sure they are, but I have to add more comments to see for sure. It will probably take me some time before I can really tell if the links are working correctly.

The Miniature Photographer website has a new look! I am finally getting to know PHP with Object-oriented Programing and CSS Grids! I still have a lot to learn and still have to make improvements to this website. However, I am much further along than I have ever been in my life. I just wished that I had done this when I was younger.

Improved my CMS upload images to save to a better image size and eventually will be getting away from thumbnail sizes.
