Here’s another really strange discovery from one of our procuring adventures.
Let’s start with the easy part: it’s a chalkware, um… head, heads, bust, bursts? Okay, not so easy. It’s a double-ended caricature about 6 inches tall and weighs about three pounds. One way up it reads Jonah with a smiley face. Flip it over and we have somber Jake. On the back is engraved: PAT PEND TRADE MARK JONAH AND JAKE. Not much to go on.
It’s been eight years since our first and only cruise vacation to Alaska, which we thoroughly enjoyed. But we had always wondered about sailing the Caribbean from Galveston. The idea of skipping the airport delays and drama is appealing, despite Galveston being an 8-hour drive away.
Remember the wireless storage cards made by Eye-Fi? If not, you aren’t alone.
The basic idea behind Eye-Fi wireless storage cards was to bundle an SD media card with an onboard WiFi chip. This card, once inserted into your DSLR camera, allowed you to magically transfer images as you snapped them. It’s sad Eye-Fi didn’t succeed, because it was such a cool photography tool.
