Home Theater experience!

Well, we’re now the home theater people. We  were just a large TV, no sound system but a killer DVD player people. Now… we’re Killer HDTV, Killer Sound System, & Killer DVD people.

I did not get a Blue-Ray dvd player. I don’t feel the need. My movies look great and I don’t want to get the added expense of the new player and start buying a more expensive movie.

I know, I know… you wanted to see pictures and I will gladly provide you pictures that were taken with my new Nikon S550. Yes, I got a new camera. we’ll talk about that later.

Here’s the Before:



This is the During:


Here’s the After:

DSCN0044 This thing is really, really nice. Just for grins, we watched Die Hard and we turned it up really loud. When he blew up the elevator shaft, holy moeley… it’ was loud and our chairs vibrated.

Looking at this photo, I realize we need to dust under the entertainment center… that’s what happens with these 10 mp cameras, like the Nikon S550, they show up everything. The sucker can hide behind a credit card. My friend didn’t believe me, until I hauled out one of my credit cards and placed the camera right behind it. AND it’s only about an inch thick.

I decided to buy new when I decided to go to my Mom’s for Christmas. Grandpa has been really sick and I decided to go up there to see him and get some good pictures of him. I have a great 8 mega pixel, takes gorgeous photos, but it’s really big, too big for flying. And, the small point and shoot I have just doesn’t take good photo’s in low light, like indoor light. This Nikon has a “Hi Sensitivity” setting for low light or fast action. AND, it has face recognition… nice.

Here’s a photo of papa taken with the Nikon:


He’s wearing his “get that damn camera outta my face” smile. Do you like it????

OK, so I finally got my Christmas cards done. It took me all day to fold and stamp and sticker and jot notes. I only have 70 this year. That’s down by 30 from last year and that’s as low as I want to go. Some of these people, the only time we’re in contact is on Christmas and I want to make sure that I speak to them. The Christmas letter was good and I”m happy that everything went so smoothly. It took me longer than normal, but I did it even though I knew it was going to cost me pain. It did, but it’s over now and I can be happy with the result. I made sure to put extra stickers on Docs card… just cause I could! Oh go on

Finally, I put a Christmas smelling plug in smeller, cause our house doesn’t feel like Christmas, even with the Santa’s and poinsettia’s out.

Okie Doke… I’m off to bed. Love you guys!!!

    That looks pretty darn good though I have to say that BluRay is worth it. I have a PS 3 for mine and even on the old tv you can tell that it’s got DVD beaten silly. Actually so far the most economic way to go is a PS3 however if it’s not your bag it’s not. I hope you enjoy what you’ve got to it’s fullest…sounds fun!
