This page begins with September 10th and the leaves on the ground in our "yard".  Then we jump to September 18th and photos of a pile of log length Birch firewood which we had delivered.  The only thing after that are several amazing photos of the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, on September 27th.  Click on any thumbnail to begin.

Begin September 10th
  Here are three photos taken on September 10th which show that the leaves were falling pretty rapidly on that date. Today, as I write this, it is October 1st and all leaves are gone from the trees.

  On September 17th at 10:30 PM a load of log length (42 feet) birch firewood was delivered to us and as the truck could not make it down our driveway, the logger unloaded it beside the road. The first shot here shows the pile of logs from down on our property; note that it's a downhill haul with the wheelbarrow after the logs are cut. The second shot was taken from the opposite side of the road. We started cutting and hauling it down to the woodshed on the morning of the 18th. On October 1st there were 8 logs left to cut. There were at least 60 logs delivered.

  The first shot here was taken from up the road and is looking at the butt end of the logs. On October 1st there were 8 logs left to cut and that is what is shown in the second shot. There were at least 60 logs delivered.

  On the 27th of September we happened to go out in search of Aurora Borealis and we were treated to one of the most incredible displays imaginable! We were never more than 500 yards from our house. WOW! The only thing which I have done to these photos is adjust the curves so as to bring out the brightness. I have not changed any colors.

  Now, here are some really amazing Aurora. Remember, I have not changed any colors. If anything, the actual colors we saw were more brilliant than you see here.

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.
