iMovie Is A Pain

12:32 pm:
Yesterday I tried to use iMovie to edit a video about Señor Tránsito's tail lights. As I Blogged to you yesterday, I cannot figure the iMovie thing out.

This morning, before dawn, I began working with iMovie again. Same problem. I finally edited that video a little while ago, and published it too.

Would you believe, that I still do not have iMovie video editing down solid! Anybody who says that iMovie is an easy program to use must be living on a different World from the one I live on!


Replacing Tránsito's tail lights.





2:43 pm:
Stripping Original Vinyl
The plan was to lay the Vynal Plank Flooring on top of the original linoleum vinyl. However, while removing the existing threshold, it became clear that the original vinyl was barely attached to the subfloor.

It appeared to be a simple job to remove that original vinyl. So, that's what shall be done!

5:44 pm:
What is Yuh?
George, Little iPhone, and MacAir Computer are over at a Starbucks Store in the City of Missoula Montana. We are here for the WiFi! Of course, we always buy an Iced Latte and something to eat when we go to Starbucks. Because our values mean that we pay our way!

The young fellow who was at the register asked, "What can I get for yuh?"

We receive a lot of "Yuhs" here in Montana. Actually, "Yuh" has become a universal utterance by young folks everywhere that we go.

Why has a "Yuh" displaced the "You?" Nobody on the Scampy Team knew the answer to that question!

How about you? Do you know why "Yuh" took the place of "You?"




9:55 pm:
Construction Zone
When the Scampy Team found the site if their Nite Camp, the interior of Scampy looked like a construction zone! We had worked all day without keeping our work place in order!

It took about 20-minutes after Little iPhone captured the pic below to make everything right again.

It's a mess. But our flooring 
project is coming along nicely.

    1. Hi Barb,

      I think regular pictures are just fine too!

      However, videos may even be finer! Whatta "yuh" think?

    2. Since you asked:

      1. Videos don't play well on my primary equipment.

      2. I don't have a MAC and do not run Windows on my PC.

      3. Takes too much time to switch/boot Linux just to watch a short video.

      4. Therefore I rarely watch videos.

      5. Your still photos are terrific!

      6. Your written descriptions are great and can't possibly take longer than making a video.

      Just my preference, but I'm only one person so do what you want. Thanks for asking.

    3. Hi Barb,

      I believe very shortly, my videos will be watchable on both PCs and Macs.

      I shall continue to publish photos on my Blog.

      But I have a questions for you, Barb. You commented:
      "1. Videos don't play well on my primary equipment."

      1. What do you mean by "primary equipment."
      2. What aspect of playing are you commenting about?
      [Audio?, Video?, Something else?]

      Thanks,
      George

    1. Hi Kathy,

      Thank you sooooo much for your very nice compliment!

      I'm thinking that making videos about what I am doing, may be something that a lot of Readers like a lot!

      Of course most of my Blog will be made up from my writing and photos.

      It's just a matter of time before I am comfortable with editing videos with the help of iMovie.

  4. George, I’m 83 and you’re 81. We’re old farts. Language changes and we remain in the old ways. Pretty sure I used language when I was young that my parents questioned.

    1. Hi Bill,

      Your comment is a good answer to my question:
      "Do you know why "Yuh" took the place of "You?""

      I'm close to 81 years. My birthday is in November!

  5. I think "yuh" has replaced "you" in many instances because it takes greater phonetic exercise to say "you". In other words it can be attributed to unintentional vocal laziness.

    1. Hi Peter,

      It may be that language change as this You/Yuh one happen because young people want to conform. They quest to be part of the in-crowd.

      If people in the in-crowd begin using Yuh, others follow.

    1. Hi Ed,

      Why ask? Young people do not know why they began using Yuh instead of You.

      This kind of thing is a subconscious phenomenon. As Bill in Chico commented, "Language changes."

    1. Hi JJ,

      I never even contemplated replacing my Written Blog with a Video Blog.

      I'm just going to publish a few videos now and then.

  8. I think it is used with the phrase "what can I get for ...." because it's being said quickly and repeated so often. They probably don't say it in regular conversation.

  9. I don't care for the use of: basically,exactly and the one that is really pushing me over the edge is:LIKE-like-like every 3rd word...How bout yuh?
