Remember that when you leave this Earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received, only what you have given, a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage. -St. Francis of Assisi

Another Gadget

Today, while printing all the tax returns, I ran out of ink for my printer.

I went to Staples to get ink and came home with a new gadget.

It's a tradition to buy myself a gift after April 15th
I would work so many hours that I never went shopping.
I would work, eat and sleep during tax season
 and not much of anything else.
I don't work that much anymore,
 but still like to get myself a gift.

The Kodak PlaySport HD Waterproof Pocket Video Camera, was on clearance and I also used a $10.00 coupon.  I'm not sure if I'll be able to set it up before I leave, but want to be able take pics and videos while traveling.

Some of the features:  Its the size of a cellphone and will work up to 10' under water. I love that its waterproof.  Full 1080p HD Video and 5MP HD still pictures.

Also, glare shield and image stabilization, I remember my husband had problems with these two issues with his cameras.  The package includes a HDMI cable and an USB cable for easy sharing on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. I may put some stuff on Facebook for my family, but not to sure about Twitter or You Tube.  It uses an optional Video Memory Card, so I'll be looking for one of these on sale.


  1. Nice new toy. You deserve it.

  2. Great camera. I love camera's I have a Kodak but not that beauty and a Canon that I love. If I get better this summer I may have to buy the next step up in Canon. Have fun and I can't wait to see some pictures.
    Travel Safe

  3. congrats on the new toy!!..I am sure you will be posting videos on your blog before long!!

  4. I like that it's waterproof. It would have been nice to have when I was in Hawaii. Oh, well.
