James 3:14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.  15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.  16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.  17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.  18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

So I fought with the new borescope and my little Samsung tablet computer for a couple of hours.  Ultimately it turned out my tablet is one of the few models that simply won't work with the scope.  I was able to get it to work with my PC but that doesn't do me much good out in the field.  Now I could have just returned it but I am determined to use it for looking into tiny places.  So what did I do?...bought another tablet.  Found a pretty good deal on an eight inch tablet that runs Windows 10 instead of Android ($87.99 including 2nd day shipping).  Downloaded some free recording software and everything is a go now.  Disclaimer: This is just the tablet's home screen wallpaper - not an endoscopic view of a tiny miraculous underworld at TFL.  72,75,60,0,W

the good tripod

Been fighting with 3 cheap broken down tripods for years.  These were about 20 bucks each at Walmart and the heads are either stripped or at least a leg or two has to be held in place with duct tape.  Finally upgraded to a Zomei - the illegitimate (and much cheaper) cousin of the Gitzo...which was the workhorse in the industry for this type of tripod back in my photo days.  Note: A Gitzo tripod with a ball head costs almost $1000.  94,97,59,0,C

what is it?

Was really hoping for a gusher yesterday afternoon.  Even had my GoPro set up down in the canyon to catch the flash.  Nice big red blob on the doppler radar was heading right for me out of the north and then it wimped out.  Storms come and go pretty quickly out here.  89,92,54,0,B
