Temperature Drop

Temperature Drop

Blame it on La Nina, but the temperature drop last night was significant.  We got our first snow of the season (see my season watch).  I didn’t take a picture of it because it’s lack luster.  In a picture you’d think it was a heavy frost.

Tim Horton’s

We went to Tim Horton’s for lunch because I had a gift card for the place.  I’ve been a couple of times for doughnuts.  We decided to try it for lunch.  I’m not impressed, and neither was Elizabethe.

If given the choice between Dunkin Donuts and Tim Hortons, I think I would go to Wegmans for donuts, and Burger King for lunch.   I know coffee drinkers who like one or the other.  However, since I’m not a coffee drinker I can’t find anything at either donut shop to draw me in.

A few years ago Burger King and Tim Hortons merged.  I can’t say I’ve noticed much of a change in Burger King, and I wasn’t a big enough fan of Tim Hortons to say if anything changed there.

Well, that was our date for the day.

Shoot Tomorrow

I need to get ready for my shoot tomorrow.  I’m going to set the heater tonight so that it will be warm for the morning.  The shoot is first thing in the morning.

Four

Getting up at four takes its toll.  In order to get Marilyn to the airport for her flight we had to get up at 4pm.   It really wasn’t hard, but I woke at 2 a.m. and couldn’t go back to sleep.  It took its toll around 4 p.m. this afternoon.

We got her to the airport on time, and on the way home looked for a place to grab breakfast.  What is it with Rochester that nothing is open before 6 a.m.?  In California that would never fly.  Here… even fast food places a Californian would find open 24 hours a day are closed here — even Dunkin Donuts was closed!!!

We finally found a McDonald’s open, but by that time it was 6 a.m.  I’m guessing they just opened.

Painting

I’m speaking at the Tri County Networkers on Thursday.  I’ve decided to speak about digital painting and how that fits in to my business model.

I have a bit more work to do on it, but I was in a rush because we have our temple shift tonight.  (Elizabethe and I do volunteer work at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the New York Palmyra Temple.)  I might do some more work on it tomorrow, but for now, this is where it stands.

Pageant

I’m thinking the Hill Cumorah Pageant letters haven’t gone out yet.  Normally by this time of year our phone is ringing off the wall.

If you are NOT participating in Pageant (i.e. you are not waiting for a letter), get your reservations in quickly.  Once those letters go out rooms will disappear.  (There are very few places to stay in Palmyra.  Rooms go quickly.)

And, for Pete’s sake, stay here a few days.  There’s plenty to do in the area, and we’d love having you stay in Palmyra.
