My wife purchased a Saints ball cap and three Saints shirts. I purchased two more T-shirts to go with my old, faded, Saints pull-over warm-up and my New Orleans ball cap (I threw away (donated to Goodwill) my old #2 “Brooks” jersey a few years ago!) I may purchase a new #12 “Colston” jersey.

I will keep on trying. I can feel the potential of this Nikon D90 camera, I just have to become proficient in its use.

I have been challenged by the new JVC Hard Disk Drive Camcorder. It is not as simple as I had anticipated. Mastering the software to get the completed video from the camcorder into the computer and edited is not easy. As I get use to the procedures and the new software, I hope to speed […]
