Hanover Maryland Businesses on FB, More Features

I have been working on several enhancements to the Hanover Maryland Businesses Page on Facebook.

Several page tabs have been added, including:

  • Hanover Maryland Jobs [now working, also see the "Use App" Button installed sometime ago providing the same type of data...]
  • Hanover Maryland Real Estate
  • Instagram Feed using a specific #hashtag for the area
  • Pinerest [added a board w/pins, specific to Hanover Maryland]

Illustrated below, the updated page and tab flow as provided to the page administrator [in case you are wondering why the page in your browser is slightly different].

I would also like to include a page tab that provides economic and demographic profile data for the area, however have yet to find an up-to-date source for the specific area of Hanover Maryland.

In the meantime, if you would like more information about the area- contact the West Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce or the Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation.

Spring 2017 Plants, Indoor & Out...

Years ago [about 17 or so], my niece and I created the house plant arrangement discussed in this post. The arrangement has grown so much, this weekend I decided to transplant one of the plants to a separate planter.

My irises are a little late this year. I think it is because of the warm weather false start in our area earlier this year.

Other things I have been up to?

Hope my irises start blooming this week...

Spring 2017 Hair

Recently, I have been out and about shooting video with my new camcorder. Mainly, trying to become more expert at capturing the moments I want to record. Though the unit is very easy to use I am still having timing issues.

In case you thought it was me [with the camcorder]-- here are recent photos.

Though I have not sported the "updo" that often, I will in the future. My hair is like a sponge when it is humid and I am going to use the comb whenever needed.

I set my hair every night [takes about half an hour]-- just in case I need to dash out during the day. I will be out a bit more in the near future, however mainly because I have to take care of some appointments.

I was over at the Thomas A. Dixon Jr. Aircraft Observation Area last Sunday, and it was crowded. That said, I did not capture any video worth showing. I need a little more practice.

Other things I have been up to?

Old Music & iTunes

All day, I have been updating my iTunes Library with old CDs from my extensive collection.

I had separate iTunes libraries on my Macbook and Netbook, so earlier this year I decided to put everything in one location and maintain the actual music library on a 32GB SD card shown as an inset in the illustration below.

Most days when I want to listen to my music, I use the RCA Cambio Windows10 platform with my TaoTronics Stereo Bluetooth Speaker.

Below, short video showing my work environment today, while porting more "old" music to my iTunes Library.

I love having all my old CDs digitized and available whenever I want to listen.

Canon Vixia Camcorder

Finally ordered a camcorder. The final decision came down to these two:

  • Canon Vixia HF R700
  • Canon Vixia HF R800 [see this link]

I opted for the 2016 unit [R700] because it was $41.00 cheaper. The specs on both almost the same, however the R800 has one or two added features.

I am very pleased with my new hardware. Its light, easy to use and has the high definition and external microphone support I was looking for. Two items I will be ordering in the near future, an external microphone and one additional battery pack.

A short demo video to show the type of output you can expect from this camcorder.

Above, I am using the HTML5 Video Player to provide either a MP4, OGV or WEBM version of the video- depending on the browser requesting the playback.

I am using a commercial software app "TheFileConverter" to convert the MTS video file the camcorder created, into the MP4, OGV and WEBM formats for use with web browsers. Shown below- part of the underlying html for the HTML5 Video Player.

I do not need to provide different video formats for my social media accounts and am so pleased I can now upload Full HD Video to my Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, and Youtube accounts.
