acclimation – finally

Sawadee Khrap

Well I think I have actually becoming more Thai now – This morning it was 80*F  (26 C) in the house and I thought it was cool.  Haven’t gotten used to metrics yet so I still use Fahrenheit.  I expect it to reach about 96-7 today outside in the shade.

I have had to start drinking a flavored electrolyte solution about every other day to compensate for the sweating, although I am not as bad as when I arrived.  It’s amazing how much better I feel after having the drink – didn’t realize how much water and salt loss there is on a daily basis in this weather.  I don’t have the constant sweating like before – but apparently it is still going on to cool me down but not as noticeable. If I start getting really tired during the day then I make sure I have been drinking enough water and solution.

Anyway – just a note –


Why bicycle shorts are always black

Not sure who the teams are but my friend sent me these photos to prove a point – “Always wear BLACK bicycle shorts”.



I find the same thing in the studio, so I never have the boys wear black or even dark clothing – especially shorts (if they have any on, that is.)

Although it does give you something else to look for when choosing your favorite teams.


went to full version Windows 7

Just got the computer working again – bad motherboard, replaced – some bad memory, replaced – bad CD writer, replaced.  Took a week to get it all done and 2 days more to reload the software.

I now have 64bit Windows 7 Home Premium – and I am really liking it – this blog entry was made using “Live Writer” – really nice.  and I now have Messenger install too – Skype works better and I really see a difference in the monitors (ATI Radeon 4550) – Lightroom and Photoshop are showing and working much better.  So far – So Good

Inserting maps, photos, videos, seems to be much easier with “Writer” than with “Blogjet” that I was using earlier – Writer actually shows me a preview of what it will look like in my blog – very nice.

I am going to see what Live Photo Gallery will look like and maybe start uploading to it. – Just a snippet and one or two images for each post and the rest in the Gallery – we’ll see.

Well this is just a test and enough for today.
