Scam I am

I have seen so many of these ridiculous "before and after" photos alongside products that probably have zero effect on the gullible consumer. Just a word of advice to people who don't know any better---before buying any magic wrinkle cures, study the before and after photos first. Take this one for example:

The before shot shows the woman in harsh, overhead light which always makes the subject look like hell on earth. The after shot shows direct lighting---there could even be a soft-focus filter involved. Honestly, both shots were probably taken in the same sitting. It's all about the lighting. Wake up and get with the program people!!

Winter walk

My high school friend Jay is in town from Michigan for the new year and we hit the wintry shoreline in Fairfield this afternoon. The beach is so peaceful when it's snowing...

...until the seagulls attack.

I'm an expert when it comes to ordering up a few "natural rages".
