Funky, spooky pix

Hey all - the other night was the closest the moon will be this year, it's the hunter's moon, and it was awesome here up north. After walking the dog, and fueled by a couple of beers, we decided it would be cool to take pictures of the moon and the house. So we got the camera and ran the battery out taking pix with every possible camera setting. Note: beers + manual settings on camera = not the least shaky camera-holding ability in the world. (Later found out that my camera charger is missing, so these will be the last pictures until I find it or get a new one. Which is sad because we just put up a bunch of kitchen trim. Oh well, you'll just have to use your imaginations.)

Anyways, here are two of the better ones:

On this second one, note that all of the lights inside and outside the house are energy-efficient CFLs, which are really great for energy conservation. And cheap to run. And cool-burning, so you don't have to worry about the house burning down (as long as you have newer wiring, right?). May we point out that they do NOT give off a cold blue light if you pick your paint colors properly? Our house glows with a warm tone, and it looks fab. Just remember to RECYCLE your fluorescent bulbs properly - they contain mercury, which should NOT, repeat, should NOT be put in the trash.

Speaking of spooky, tomorrow is Halloween, which is amazingly huge in our neighborhood. The porch is great for distributing (and eating) candy, and we'll try to squeeze a photo or two out of the poor camera, and get you some details.

Happy Halloween!
