I hope everyone had a fun and safe Christmas.  The weather here was fine.  Not too cold and little wind.   As all ways the food was amazing.  All so as all, ways ate a bit too much.  Thankfully there are many leftovers for today.  Spent most of the day relaxing and listen to Christmas music.  Then some TV specials.




Christmas Tree 2017

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 3, 2018 by getbent57

The first Sunday is traditionally the day we put up your Christmas Tree.   Being a fake tree is is easy to setup.  All ways test the lights before putting them on.  They all worked.  Well until I plugged them in once they were all on the tree.  The set at the top no longer worked for some reason.  It’s a small set so easy to take off.  So I had to move a few other lights around to try and fill in the gaps.  Time got around to doing all that.  Decided we will decorate the tree the next day.  Here is the finish product.

Tycka Camera 204 LED Lighting Panel Hands On

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , on September 25, 2018 by getbent57

The Tycka LED light panel model TK204 I ordered came in the mail the other day.  Took it out of the box and put the battery in.  There was good amount of charge left in it.  Turned it on.  Tested out the colour temperature and dimmer knobs.  Was very impressed on how well it worked. It comes with three accessories for mounting.  The next video project I work on will be using this light.  However first I must learn about White Balancing.

PlayStation_ClassicRetro videos games are all the rage these past few year.  Atari, Sega an Nintendo has all put out small consoles with many preloaded games on them.  Sony is having a go at it was well.  The announced on September 20, 2018 they are putting out PlayStation Classic.  This a small device that looks like the original PlayStation.  It will be preloaded with 20 games.  They haven’t named all of them yet.  But said a few of them, Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3 and Wild Arms.  In the box you will an  HDMI cable, USB cable (minus an AC adaptor for some reason), and two classic controllers.  So there is not analog sticks.  Just like the original launched with.  It will be out December 3, 2018.  As for a price.  Here in Canada it will be $130.00.

It is pretty cool and interested.  Just going to wait and see what the other 15 games are.  Will not be pre-ordering.  If there some good games I would want to play.  Then see one in store would think about buying it.

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 18, 2018 by getbent57

It has been has been way too long since I gave my motorcycle, 2006 Yamaha XT225, a wash and wax (September 17, 2018).  This summer was really hot with very little rain.  Didn’t want to waste the water.  Every year before the Cape Breton Bike Rally I would give it a good wash/wax.  Not this year.  There is about a week left in September.  So time is time is getting close to having to put it way for the year.  Made it to about two weeks into October last year.  Well see what this year brings.

The_Grand_Tour_GameWhile there is no word let on when season three of The Grand Tour will start.  There is some news to share.  That this years Gamescom (Think E3 but only bigger and taking place in Germany) they announced they were will be a game out about the show.  It is called The Grand Tour Game.  From what I have read.  It will be and episodic game.  There will be new content out with each episode of season three of the show.  Amazon is making the game with their Amazon Game Studios and will be on the PS4 and Xbox One.  From the trailer > here or below.  It looks nice but all so like a cell phone game.  There are some screen shots as well.  They show some four player split-screen, which is cool.  We all so see cars from the past two season.  Not sure when this will be out or a price yet.  Will be keeping my eye on it.



Cape Breton Bike Rally 2018

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 4, 2018 by getbent57

It is one of my favourite times of year, The Cape Breton Bike Rally (2018).  All ways like watching the stunt show.   Took lots of pictures this.  Think around 92 but narrowed to 24 of the best ones.  You can see them below.  Last year they had the show on a dead end street.  When people packed on both sides.  The run was much smaller.  This year the blocked of a street to give them more home.  So it made it look it was a lot less people there.  Plan to go back tomorrow to buy a shirt.  They have a new design this year.
