I’ve been trying to post more often lately. Really. I’m not going to commit to anything crazy, like a post every day (like both of my brothers are trying to do), but I just want to get something up here more regularly than I have been.
Tuesday night, I finally had a good night of bowling again. I’ve been struggling a bit lately, and my average has dropped a few pins in all my leagues. One of them ended last week, and the other two have a couple of weeks left. Then the summer leagues start. Anyway, Tuesday I shot 194-215-258 for a 667 series. Not bad. In the 258, I put together eight strikes in a row from the second frame through the 9th frame.
Yesterday, I got a color calibrator for my monitor(s) at home. I chose this one despite mixed reviews at Amazon (and elsewhere), because the positive reviewers were all very happy with it. I ran through the setup, and it seems to have worked nicely. The color on my monitor looks much nicer, and at the very least it at least did something. The real test will be when I try to print at Costco, soft-proofing with their custom printer profile. The whole idea behind it is to be able to see on the screen exactly what the print will look like.
After calibrating, I was going back through some old images, and some of them looked quite a bit better. Here’s one I found from a year ago that I apparently didn’t think much of the first time through, but I like it now:
Tomorrow night, I fly out to Phoenix to visit my brother and his wife. I’m going to get to two Mets@Dbacks games while I’m there. Hopefully, they’ll play better than they did in their 13-1 loss to the Pirates last night.
The hardest part of posting more often is coming up with good post titles. It tends to get very repetitive.
