Travel Diary Day 2: Kauai

6.01 Hawaii-Aleutian Time
At 5.20 (11.20 Eastern) I pop into consciousness like a cork. After I brush my teeth I do the yawn-stretch-look-out-on-the-horizon-because-I've-got-a-balcony-thing people do. Jeez, the light is coming in fast. I'd better run out and get a shot. After throwing my laptop in my pack and looping myself in a tangle of camera straps I run outside. I turn on my camera: "No Card Read" in stentorian red. I'd left the SM card upstairs in the card reader. No worries. I have an extra card in my camera bag...Except it is filled with some pretty good photos from San Antonio. Mercilessly editing I scroll through the exposures and delete a couple of the less compelling.

The pink in the sky's going. I'd better get this shot. I rush down to the beach. It faces south, so I can't get a frame of sunrise, but I hope to catch some palms against the Southeastern pinkening sky. The better angle is from within the surf. I wade in. Waves kinetically slap my hips. I think about the life being bled from my battery. I wish I could get lower. I consider ducking down in the water to get a shot between waves. Think twice about that one.

Crank the F-stop wide open and the shutter to 1/50. I'm going to have to hold this camera real still while the waves smack me. Those exposures later. Here are a few from yesterday's travels, and then off to breakfast:

I rarely speak in absolutes when discussing texas holdem, but it is absolutely worth the study. Texas holdem is a people game played with cards, not a card game played by people, at least once you get out of the penny-ante level.

Playing texas holdem always keep your strategy in mind, raise your bets and your total slowly but steadily. If you know and understand something about this game (texas holdem poker, online poker) that your opponent does not, you will play a better game. http://www.texas-holdem-0.com

There is no such thing as society....There are individual men and women, and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look to themselves first.

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
