Kazuya did not get around to labeling and giving me his photos taken after October 1st, until October 26th, so this page shows several of Kazuya's photos of various subjects. There are several baked goods photos (all delicious to eat) and then some photos of a visitor to our house on October 26th.   Click on any thumbnail to begin.

Kazuya's Baked Delights - October 2nd through October 26th
  Here is a Lingonberry Cheesecake. This was so very delicious.

  This is an Apple-Sweet Potato Pie. I don't know where Kazuya found this recipe, but it was a surprise to find the orange chunks in the pie. Of course it was delicious. Oh, by the way, the crust is 144 layers thick. It is composed of a layer of dough, a layer of butter, a layer of dough, a layer of butter and so on. The crust takes nearly a full day to make.

End Kazuya's Baked Delights, Begin A Postal Surprise
  Here are two photos of a box of Oregon vegetables which were sent to us by a friend. The vegetables were all home grown by the friend and were so very tasty. The two beeswax candles that look like pine cones are amazing too.

End A Postal Surprise, Begin October 26th Visitor
  In mid-afternoon on October 26th we returned from town and after we had brought our shopping bags in the house we were on the porch enjoying the day. Kazuya heard and saw something off in the woods. At first he thought it was some bird, but then it came closer and we got our first glimpse of it. It was an Ermine (Mustela erminea). It explored tha area around our house for maybe 15 minutes, just running through the woodshed, around the house, jumping and practically bouncing off trees. We hope that it will stay here and continue to entertain us from time to time. We have a lot of Red-backed voles and Meadow voles here and they are one of its favorite foods, so we fully expect it to stay.

End October 26th, Begin October 27th
  The night of October 27th we went out on the porch at about 11:30 PM and noticed that the Northern Lights were out so we took a few shots from the driveway, like we always do, and then we walked up the road 200 or 300 meters and shot more photos. This one shown here is an attempt to combine three separate photos that were quite nice. All three shots were taken from the exact same spot with the camera on the tripod, so it was relatively easy to align the three shots, but then combining them so that the different lighted areas showed to the optimum amount took a lot of playing around. Anyway, this is what I ended up with.

End October 27th, End October 2016's Photos, Begin Miscellaneous Links
  Here are links to separate web pages - all of them will open in a new window (or new tab). The first link shows some photos of our DVD Collection, an AVI Movie of our Home Theater System and 9 photos of our Sharp Aquos TV. The 2nd link shows our entire DVD collection in DVD Profiler (if you're asking yourself what might be good to rent for the weekend). The DVD's will be sorted by date purchased. You can click on the "Title" Column to sort that way if you desire. The 3rd link shows our entire DVD collection in php DVD Profiler, which is much more sophisticated than the plain vanilla DVD Profiler just above it. The 4th link takes you to a set of pages which show you the FRONT cover-art of our entire DVD collection.
