I think that this website, miss freddy, could be a useful resource for anyone interested in family photography.
Miss Freddy is a Professional Photo Organizer who explains how to take photos, how to save photos, then how to do just about anything you might want to do with your photos + slides + old videos.
I have boxes of old, old print photos around here and thousands of digital ones on a few computers, but I’ve never sat down and concentrated on getting ALL our photos organized. This website may be the key to me getting it done.
I think that the idea of going on vacation with the intention of traveling to small American towns is a fun one.
According to this article, America’s Coolest Small Towns by State, big cities get all the attention, while unique small towns go unnoticed. These small towns are worthy of a visit if for no other reason than “the added appeal of home-spun charm and hometown heroes.”
I read the list and have visited 12 of the 50 featured small towns. I’ve been to: AZ, FL, HA, IN, ME, NM, NY, NC, OH, SC, TN, AND VT. This means I have 38 to go, should we get the opportunity to travel again.
I think that the Netflix produces some good and some not-so-good TV series.
In the good category I’d put Dead to Me, with Christina Applegate, Linda Cardellini, and James Marsden. I watched Season 2 and enjoyed it as much as Season 1, which was stellar. This show is one to watch if you like mysteries, dysfunctional families, and contemplating what it means to be a friend.
On the flip side, I watched 3 episodes of Sweet Magnolias, a TV series based on novels by Sherryl Woods. Set in SC, this show was probably meant to be an engaging look at family dynamics and female friendship, but it was predictable and maudlin. Much too slow-paced, shallow, and sappy for me.

QUESTIONS OF THE DAY
Do you have your photographs under control? In other words, can you find them when you want ’em?
What do you think about traveling to small towns to experience their unique charm instead of going to big cities for a vacation?
Have you watched the TV shows I mention above? If so, did you like what you saw? If not, what are you watching instead?
