Pine Brook and Cameras

Alley Pond Park

Did two geocaches yesterday evening in the Pine Brook area. BT02-Behind The Depot is, as the name suggests, behind a Home Depot. BT03-Time for lunch is at a small park in a nearby residential area. Dinner was at Ruby Tuesday because I had a $4 coupon. I didn't go to the one at Willowbrook Mall in Wayne because of past experience with their slow service. Instead, I went to the one at Garden State Plaza in Paramus. I had the Buffalo chicken minis combo with salad bar.

I've gotten all the camera issues sorted out for now. I returned the defective Nikon Coolpix L11 camera to Cowboom last week and they issued a refund, including what they charged for tax and shipping, so I wasn't out anything on that deal. Then I took delivery of a Coolpix L4 the other day and another Coolpix L11 this afternoon. Both are fully functional, as far as I can tell. The test picture I took with the L11 is of the eBay seller's packing material. He apparently ran a cardboard box through a shredder. Rather unusual but that did the trick.


1. What kind of out-of-school lessons did you take as a kid?
I had piano lessons for a while. Stopped because I didn't like it.

2. What valuable lesson did you learn this past week?
Nothing much this past week. The week before... oh boy.

3. Who in your life really needs to be taught a lesson?
There are a few people. I'm not going to name anyone, so all I'll say is they are learning. Too bad it had to be the hard way.

4. What kinds of lessons would you love to have a private teacher for right now?
Any of the social graces, probably.

5. What steps have you taken to lessen the impact of these rough economic times?
Nothing that I wasn't already doing before the recession started. If you only start saving when times are hard, you're taking a bigger hit than if you had been frugal all along.
