Steve Jobs 1955-2011

I just read the NEWS on my computer,
  today Steve Jobs died at the age of 56.

I love this comment, spoken by President Obama, "There may be no greater tribute to Steve's success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented."

Apple posted this statement on their website:  "Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being.  Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor.  Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple."

The nation mourns the loss of one of the geniuses of our time.  I can't imagine how different our lives would be without all of our iTOYS!  I am so thankful I was able in my lifetime to enjoy the fruits of his labor;  my Mac Book computer, my iPod, my iPhone, my iPad.

Across the globe other countries also mourned his passing...we felt like we knew him personally.  He was my HERO.  SO SAD.

This cartoon from  the internet is so apropos.  Steve would have loved the humor.   Words we use daily thanks to him!

God Bless You.

"A bad hair day?"   
" Hmmmppph!"

I love the curls, unruly or perfectly quaffed.  
her freckles make me smile!

My Punkin' Noodle.
There is none cuter, sweeter, smarter, funnier than my Girlie.
This picture cracks me up!!!

A ray of sunshine, she brightens everyones day!
She is precious and can do no wrong in her Nana's eyes!

We ride Dumbo every year at Disneyland or Disneyworld, 
depending on which coast we're on when we celebrate birthdays.

Great Grandma Decoteau and Girlie 9mo.
Who knew she would grow to become
such a "cutie patootie" at 4yrs!

My photography

Yes, it is definitely my passion.

My favorite pastime and every-waking-moment-fun-thing to do!  When my children were little I used my Brownie Hawkeye camera to capture funny moments like my son sleeping at the table while eating his peas!

Those good-old-days snapshots in black and white were all we had way back then!  But I'm thrilled to have preserved so many memories because I was such a camera nut!   My family made fun of me, always ready to take a picture of something, even food!!!  But everyone loves to look back at all of those old photos, enjoying every captured moment.

Over the years our cameras with black and white film gave way to Kodak color film.  Still taking great  pictures for our photo albums we forged on.  Unfortunately, we never knew what kind of pictures we would eventually end up with as we couldn't review the shot ahead of time and retake a bad shot.  We had to wait for the film to be developed and pray the pictures would all turn out.  Even my 35 mm camera couldn't always predict a good outcome.

Then came digital cameras and my first point and click was awesome.  No more film to deal with, and the screen let us review what we had taken.  Imagine that!  Then came my Minolta camera, my Pentax, and many more great little toys including my iPhone 4!  It takes great pictures and I use it often.  You never know when you'll need a camera !

In December of last year I purchased my latest camera, a Canon Rebel T1i /EOS 500D and I love it!  Especially my 250mm telephoto lens.  I'm hoping to get a 300mm telephoto and a Macro lens soon.

I enjoy capturing the beauty of nature as well as just plain everyday life.  I look forward to a day of photography and get lost in hours of enjoyment.

Today is beautiful, sunny and warm!  FINALLY!  CA has had a long, wet, cold winter and it's so wonderful to see and FEEL the sun!  It's 78 degrees in Kearny Mesa and we're enjoying a "sit" on the patio!

I think I'll read a book!  Now where did I put it?
