I saw this bunny rabbit in a yard while on a walk with a friend. It gave me a chance to try out the zoom. I am very happy with how it turned turn.

One quick snack, I enjoy having is blue cheese on whole wheat crackers. It is a simple snack but taste great. Blue cheese have an earth taste that I enjoy. Blue cheese is know for blue veins of mold that runs through the cheese. Sometimes, I will get some Gorgonzola cheese which is another type of blue cheese which has a more potent taste.
I hope you give this quick and simple snack idea. Try different types of blue cheese. Some have a mild taste, while other are more potent.

While around the beginning of the year my old camera stopped taking pictures. After shopping around a little, I brought a new camera. I was back in business. So far, I have dropped this new camera in a mud puddle and dropped it several other time. I am glad to say I got the camera back to working good after leaving it in rice for a couple days with the lose of only one picture. That was two weeks ago now. This this week, I forgot I had my camera in my pocket and took it into work with me. Nothing to worry about there if I do not take it out. First break comes around and I was going to take my camera out to my car. I put my knife in the same pocket and it got pushed up next to my camera. When I took my camera out the preview screen was broke. It still takes pictures but it is hard to know what the picture look like until I load them on my computer.
I will continue to use the camera but, I am looking at getting another camera. I am thinking of getting a refurbished camera from Sony. I am hoping that since it comes from the factory that it will be okay. The camera will have a 16X optical zoom. That should help me get better pictures to share here on Mountain Highs and Valley Lows. I will order the new camera tonight or in the morning.

With the arrival of spring it is time to start the spring cleaning. I have already starting on doing a little extra cleaning in the house and a little yard work.
They are building new apartments in behind my house. I feel like I am cleaning out cobwebs in my bedroom and hallway more. It is almost like they reappear as soon as I take them down. I have swept and mopped the hallway and put two plastic shelves up for the books in my online store. Less room now in the hallway but I can still get through with no problems. I have straighten the boxes for my book store once again. I did not realize I had that many boxes for shipping my books. I hope my sales continue to go up. With the work I done in the kitchen and living room, I seem to have a little more room for the time being. That is until I get more books to sell. Today is the first time I turned on the air condition. I checked the filter which was still clean from my fall cleaning. I will check and clean the filter once a week and every other week depending on the dust.
Out in the yard I have been picking up trash and sticks little by little. I do not know where some much trash comes from since I stay inside most of the time. I need to take a and do a full cleaning around my yard. This past weekend, I refreshed the munch at the bottom of the front steps. I got the bag of munch when I got the new light switch for my front punch light. While working on the light switch I discovered one of my breakers is broke. I will have my friend and mentor come work on that. I trust his work more then mine or any one my landlord would get to fix it. I am still waiting for my land lord to fix the mud puddle problem I have in my parking spot. I am thinking of ways I can fix it myself. I am tried of getting out of my car and stepping into 3 inches of water when it rains. If I fix it my self I will give my landlord the bill. I am trying to decide if I will just plant grass in the yard or plant a little garden too.
The problem with spring cleaning is the list of things to clean seems to get longer as you start cleaning. I think I could take I whole week off and do nothing but clean and still not be done with the cleaning. While I will just continue to do a little each day. Maybe...

Valerie posted this video on her blog at A Mixed Bag: Saturday Special: Remember these? It made me laugh and miss the 1980s.
I still do not own an iPod. I do remember most of the things in the video.
