Be sure to watch the new highlight video I’ve posted on YouTube.

Some of the shots came out great.  I used the GoPro camera which is incredibly small and comes with a waterproof casing.  Without a zoom lense you have to be right on top of the subject.  Wish I could have gotten more footage but I was just a little impatient and wanted to get something put together.

Pointless thought I:
While driving in to Grandy, NC I see a billboard for Sonic.  At the same time I’m thinking about Hardees because I know there’s one in Grandy and I’ve been salivating like one of Pavlov’s dogs for the last 5 miles.  How can Sonic be in business with Hardees just down the street?  That’s like bologna competing with steak.  Notice that in the Sonic commercials they usually advertise desserts.  I guess they’re just an ice cream stand that happens to serve burgers whereas Hardees is a meat lovers burger joint.  Since we don’t have a Hardees on the beach I make it a point to grab lunch or dinner there when I’m on a road trip.  If you haven’t been to a Hardees lately you’ve got to check it out.

Pointless thought II:
A friend of a friend is a commercial fisherman and he hooked me up w/ some fresh caught shrimp for $3/lb.  Took it straight home and grilled it w/ some olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Simple and tasty.  Times like that it’s even better to live where we live.
