Flying High

Flying High

   I wanted to capture the her hair flying up just after the apex of the upward swing, but although I have frame with this taking place the pictures are all blurry.  The light is from the wrong direction and I just didn't have enough of it to get shutter speeds needed to freeze the frame.

   Mira, Pokie and I went on a bike ride on the Military Ridge trail this afternoon.  After an ice cream stop Verona we went to Hometown USA Community Park to inspect the playground equipment.  Our ride was around 8 miles.  I had an additional ride from and back to Elmwood Park for a total of around 25 miles for the day.
   The weather cooled off yesterday and I went for a ride.  Enjoyed it so much and decided to do it again today.  Winds were from the northeast and fairly substantial, so I decided to to by Martinsville-Waunakee ride in reverse.  The skies were cloudy and there was rain to the south of us, but it was a fine ride.  During my rides these days I have been re-reading William L. Shirer's Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.  My emphasis in this reading has been to focus on how the Nazi party gained popularity in order to be elected into government.  During my ride today, Norway and Belgium fell under Nazi occupation.
   After 188 days of continuous runtime, the Data Dragon locked up. No indication as to why, but the run is by far the longest that system has had since going online. I have RAM upgrades in the near future anyway, which I hope will help performance. Clearly, however, the system isn’t perfect. The Snow Dragon also had a crash last week after running over 50 days. The crash was a familiar, partly operational crash that looks to be related to the video card. Mouse action continues to work, but the system is otherwise halted. One monitor displays no background. Not sure what causes this, but it is rare.
