My Digital Camera is a Great Part of My Life

      I live in the country where everything is beautiful and full of life. That is why I can not imagine living without my Sony Cyber-shot Digital Camera.
     My camera goes with me to Class Reunions, Family Reunions, Christmas, Birthdays, Thanksgiving , Baby Showers, community barbecues, picnics, to town, and out to eat. I walk with it in my hand in our yard. I take pictures of my pets, and any wild animals that I see in the woods behind our house.
     These are our Azaleas, we have so many, and some are about 20 feet tall. Our home is on a country road, we have horse farms as neighbors, peanut farms and farms that grow, corn and other produce, but my favorite is watermelons.

     This is one of my favorite spots in our yard. Can you believe that anyone not trained to take photos, can take such beautiful shots with my little hand held camera. Just look at the sunshine filtering through the Oak Trees.
      Behind the Azaleas about 30 feet is a fence where our neighbor lives. While I was taking these photos their two horses were watching me, and when I pointed by camera at them, they turned and ran off, kicking their heels in the air and nipping at each other.     This one of our children, as anyone with pets will tell you the same thing.
     I have so many photos of Kee, and I did not pay a penny, I just aimed by Sony Camera, and uploaded to my computer, for us to enjoy many years from now. I also print some once in a while with my printer which is an HP DeskJet, and I can use it with my Toshiba Satellite Lab top or with my Desk Top Bell Computer.
     One reason I order on line for almost everything in my life, is because it is so convenient, as we live 25 miles to the nearest city. And it is delivered to my door, and think of all the money I save on gas. Gas is now over $3.00 per gallon, and it has stopped us from going anywhere, unless we have to go.
     I have only sent one camera back to the online company--- that I had never ordered from before--- and it was a Binocular Camera that I had order for a birthday gift, and the company sent me a new camera. So I have been happy with living in the country and ordering online.
     My friends always want to know-- what camera I use, and who the manufacture of my computers and printers---. So, I thought I would share all this with you that reads my blogs.
     My Toshiba is eight years old, and I can remember when I purchased the HP printer. My desk top was purchased in 2003, and it is still working great.

     I could share photos all day with you, and I will share more. My cousin is taking me to the Gulf Coast for my Birthday Lunch, and of course my camera will be going with me. The place is he talking me will be a secret until I have the photos to share.
Everyone have a great week and enjoy life and share with others your wonderful photos.

Family Recipes

 Chocolate Candy for your Sweetheart          
                              Easy Recipe

Before you start plug in your crock pot. Turn it on low and put in the ingredients to Melt. Then mix all your other ingredients in a very large bowl. Using a spoon or your hands to mix it well. Then shape into small balls about the size of a pecan.

 Place all your shaped balls on wax paper as you finish them. Keep a check on your melting chocolate mixture. You might want to stir it to see how fast it is melting. If it is not melting turn your crock pot up higher.

When you have finished with shaping all your mixture into balls, you are ready to begin.Make sure your chocolate is ready and completely melted. Then use two tablespoons and pick each ball up ---like you might do with a meatball---and place it into your crock pot. My crock pot is small so I place about five at a time, very gently. Then turn each one over on the other side so the chocolate has completely covered each one. Then using the two spoons again; places each piece of candy on wax paper to dry.This candy is so delicious. I made a batch and took it to my class reunion, and it was gone in no time.

After it is dry you might want to buy some candy cups to place the candy in; however, I use Mini Baking Cups because they are cheaper. Or put in a plastic bowl with a cover.


2 sticks of soft Butter

2 Boxes of Powdered Sugar
1 14oz. bag of Coconut Shredded
2 1/2 cups of chopped Pecans or Walnuts.
1 oz. of Rum Flavoring
1 can of Eagle Brand Milk
