on closer inspection...


Mapped the south 40 this morning and noticed a problem.  On closer inspection of the individual images, I found that the exposure and focus was off quite a bit.  Checked the images of the north 40 I shot yesterday and found the same problem.  Here is a comparison (the middle photos) of the first test I did and the mapping I did yesterday.  As good as the image is once all the pictures are stitched together (bottom photo of the south 40 I shot this morning), I might as well try to eek out a little more detail.  Looks like I will have to try a work around I found online and re map both missions.  If all goes well, I reckon I will shoot a tutorial video on the fix since there isn't one on YouTube yet.  87,91,60,0,B

You are a trailblazer John. Keep on keeping on, and we will keep watch. Not sure where all this technology leads us, it is certainly a double edged sword in so many ways. The virtual Pandora's box rubicon is ahead.

At least from your vantage point you get the best of both worlds! I like your style sir.

The key to embracing technology is to use it for what it is meant for...to gain an advantage over the problems in the world instead of trying to gain advantage over other people.

Well said. Thanks!

It would be great if you could explain why you left your homeland, which is a bastion of influentials for TFL. It is no secret that your corner of the Empire State has some very deep ties and retains to this day much influence though like yourself, it is common that they wield that influence from other locales. From my vantage point, these folk take a much greater liking to Switzerland than Israel, but that has just been my observation. If I were a betting man, I would say they largely retain their empirical ambitions but perhaps of a less Zionist perspective even though many are Jews.

I would love to hear anything you are willing to offer for inquiring minds as to just what you (or they) might be up to.

Billy Joel's song Miami 2017 alludes to some of these aspirations does it not? Didn't that song come out in the 70's? And Trump, the NYer, home base next county over from Dade? Please fill us in on what you will oh wise one.

good job on QC - that's a significant difference in photo quality. I'm sure many
Mavic owners/photo enthusiasts will appreciate the tutorial on the fix/remedy you came up with.
OK, now I get it.
liked this one too, but can see why it didn't make the cut… can't tell if it was before or after.

Joseph Smith, the Mormon hails from your neck of the woods also does he not? Goldman Sachs set up shop in Salt Lake City pretty thick since the mortgage meltdown. I tried to talk to the Mormons when they approached me to discuss the Book of Mormon with regard to understanding how their version of Christianity and their proclamation that they were trying to restore Jesus church meshed with using their required tithes to buy businesses rather than help the poor, but the guys on the bicycles don't know anything about that. Then, most recently, according to the Deseret Times, and other Mormon publications they have decided that homosexuality is cool with God. It then became clear to me they were Jews not Christians. Just saying.

"As our second largest office in the Americas and fourth largest globally, Goldman Sachs Salt Lake City will experience..."

Quentin Tarantino thought Ezekiel 25:17 should have read:

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

FWIW, for my money, the Mormons COULD HAVE simply said that owning a business that provides returns can help more needy than simply donating tithes to causes that always need more money and we would have to figure out new ways to get that money. But they didn't. They went ahead and embraced fallacy over gods law. But they do have a powerful backer that also supports that ideology.

Lloyd Blankfein made a mistake in his embrace of LGBT, just as many others have. It is shameful that G_D aka Lloyd_Fein sold his soul to the devil. But that does not mean it is too late for the rest of us to repent.

Best I can offer for everyone tonight.


Todd said...

Just to be completely transparent I refuse to believe that prudent child rearing can be accomplished in the LGBT accepting realm. What to be done with mutants taught they were born that way is beyond my pay grade. But people fashioning themselves as worthy leaders who adopted the legitimacy of this doctrine in the boiling of the frog fashion have sold their followers short of truth and long of lies in Goldman parlance.

I do know the Baptists have faced a huge amount of backlash for their unwillingness to adopt these doctrines. I suspect once all the dust has settled they will be proud that they stood up for the truth when everyone else decided the acceptance of the politburo and the malinformed trumped the truth. It is a sad day in America, for that there is no doubt.

Nice Hat John!

Todd...The reason I left my "corner of the Empire State" was $1,000/month in property taxes for my 2,800 sq ft house on 35 acres.

Margery Bills said...

Today or soon you could be having the property in N.Y. with homesteading senior taxes for around $3,000/year or so. Sad. But you are doing well where you are. There is always change.

Margery Bills said...

As for me, my military family came here and wanted me here near them. Then some died and I am still here. I have thought many times that I could have left. But here I sit like a dufus.

My daughter blew up when I told her I had bought land in Terlingua. :-)

I think my son here in Texas might snap up anything I have.

I moved out of NY because I couldn't afford a mortgage with all the taxes. I bought a house in PA where the taxes were half that of NY. Now PA is following NY and it's time for me to sell my house here.

In defense of Lloyd, there is an interview of him on CNBC circa 2010-2012 where he stated a reluctance to embrace social liberalism (which is from whence today's gender dysphoria advocates spring). His comment was something along the lines of "We will see in time just where this social liberalism gets us". Clearly he was better informed on just where that train was headed than anyone I had spoken with. The popular discourse on these subjects today has rendered me speechless. Who would have thunk that all of human history could at a single moment and forever after be derided as hatred by the mainstream when the truth is that love for ones progeny demands rejection or hate of evil framed as love. Strange times we live in.
