Street vs Park

Day 7

Nite Camp Style

7:30am - As you may know, the Scampy RV Team makes our Nite Camps on the street. If we changed our Nite Camp Style to RV Park camping, we would not have been able to stay here in the Town of San Ardo.

The pic below is where we made our Nite Camp. It's about a mile southeast of the center of San Ardo.  It is sooooo quiet here on this lovely Sunday morning!

11:20am - Boid loves veggies!
As you may imagine, the area around the Town of San Ardo is mostly agricultural based. 

This morning as we drove, we came upon a field of some kind of green leaf veggie. I tasted it. Couldn't identify?

When that green leaf was placed into Boid's cage, he began eating it! I was surprised at how much Boid loved eating that leaf!

John & Mimi have told me that their budgies love veggies! Now I know that Boid is a "Bird of a feather!"

Boid says, "Hi to Buddy and Ollie!" [John & Mimi's birdies]



4:30pm - City of Salinas
We have arrived in Salinas. It was our intention to do laundry today. We visited three coin laundries. All three packed!

Sunday may not be a good day to do laundry in a working class neighborhood. We will try doing our laundry again mid-week.

Flowers
On the way out of San Ardo this morning, Little iPhone captured a pic of big and gorgeous sunflowers. A farmer planted sunflowers as a border to the crops growing in the field.

San Ardo sunflowers!


ZTE Mobley
There is a lot of talk around the RVing crowd about a device called:
ZTE Mobley

Are you using the ZTE Mobley?



Image Test
Hi Everybody!

We wish to post images on our Blog which are the best for you. Our friend Kevin Read [Of Kevin and Ruth fame] clued us in that our images [when expanded] are much too small.

Below are images which have been resized. Would you please do us a favor?

Click on an image. The image should then resize. What we are looking for, is an image that grows to fill your computer screen complely.

Please send us your thoughts about these images in a comment.

Thank you sooooo much!


A: 1920 x 1080

B: 1280 x 720

C: 640 x 480

  2. Hi George. Is there anything you can do to make your photos larger? For example, I click on that photo above of your nite camp site, and it comes up about the same size. I can't stand that. I want to see the full screen version!

    1. Hi Kevin,

      If you use the Google Chrome browser, you will get what you wish for. A larger pic,

      I am guessing that you are using the Safari browser. For some unknown reason, often Apple does NOT debug stuff like this?!

  3. I use the Google Chrome browser and I am unable to enlarge your pictures, too. They are very small.

    1. Hi Linda,

      Thank you for commenting!

      Did you see the "image test" that I Blogged? I'm interested to know if you saw any difference between the three images?

  4. I use the Safari on my iPhone. Simply tap the photo a couple of times; it opens in a separate window and then use your fingers to enlarge.

    3. On my PC #1 and #2 fill my screen tho somewhat fuzzy. #3 remains the same.

  5. Number 1 is the image that fills the computer completely but the quality is very poor, very fuzzy.

  6. For me, using a Firefox browser, picture "C" comes out best. It just about doubles in size and mostly maintains focus.

    Pictures A and B enlarge just fine, and when clicked upon they fill the browser window, but get a little fuzzy.

  7. Try small pieces of broccoli for Boid. Also, the dark leafy greens like spinach, kale, and dandelion leaves are very good for him. Bird seed alone does not provide enough nutrients, especially millet, even if it is sold as "bird food." There is also a very good pelleted food for parakeets and others in the parrot family.

    I learned all of this a long time ago when my son bought a baby cockatiel from a breeder. Check out this web site: http://www.petbudgie.com/feeding/

    Be careful about just picking something from a field, however. It might contain pesticides and might even be something poisonous to birds.

    1. Hi Steve,

      Thank you for commenting about my IMAGE TEST.

      There was no resolution to this image question?!?

      It seems to me that I should continue doing with images what I did in the past.

  12. Using the Mobley. Have used 29.5 GB and still have 5 days left in the billing period. Bought it directly from AT&T online for $99. No activation fee. Activated it online.
    A day or two later got an email to call a number to verify my identity. Took just a few minutes and all is fine. Pay $20 a month. Great speed. Reset the device to never turn off instead of the default of turning off after 30 minutes. Purchased an AC adaptor on ebay to allow me to use it in the "house." Actually, our home is our motorhome. Works as well as everyone says and am really glad we got it.

    1. Hi WF,

      Thank you for letting me know!

      When did you buy your ZTE Mobley? I tried to order today, and found out that no orders will be accepted because they are NOT in stock.

      I'll keep trying,
      George

  13. Got it about 3 weeks ago. Got it 2 days later. Glad I jumped on it as soon as I started reading all the buzz about it. It is a stand alone plan as our phones are Verizon and we have no other account with AT&T. So far it's been great! Sorry you are having trouble finding one.

  18. George. It looks like you are taking a small picture and resizing it which is why the big one is fuzzy. The trick is to set your (phone?) camera to take the picture in the resolution that you plan on using on your blog. You wont have to resize and there will be no loss

    1. Hi Andrew,

      Thank you! I've begun to look at iPhone's camera features and settings.

      I appreciate very much your heads-up! 😀
