    Those are great pics and I'm sure the videos are very clear too.

    Do you know that my husband's dream is to own a Gopro camera? The resolution is so good that Gopro is being used in the movies to capture action scenes especially underwater shots. In December of last year, we were in the mall and my husband was intently checking on the specs of the Gopro. He said that it's a professional camera, so small but so expensive with the low end costing 21k pesos (around $500). I handed him my credit card, a gesture for him to buy but he declined. And what is the problem? Our home computer is an old one and it may not be able to handle the uploading of the Gopro camera. So that means we have to buy a new computer first before buying a Gopro.

    That's too bad. I just looked up the price and here I think it says it's $349. This is his second one, don't know why
    He wanted another one but maybe because the second generation was better.

    He has a lot of accessories for it like a long stick and who knows what else. But he does make some cool videos, along with music and he enjoys it.

    Here is a video he made for Spanish class last year. They had to do a demonstration in Spanish. He did making a goofy sandwich.

    That's my daughters house where I always visit. Going again monday to watch this knucklehead :) and his 12 yr old brother.

    Go Pro is what my grandsons use, also, and my son has one as well. They all like theirs. I was really happy because I have been finding the accessory kits for Go Pro cameras in the Amazon Review Trader, and getting them for under $5.
    My son, Tony said that the box that I sent up for him was just stuffed with all kinds of accessories, so I am watching for camera things now that I can get cheap or free and send to them.
    Robin has a Canon 6D, so there are not so many good accessories for that as for the Go Pro ones.

    The pictures you posted from your grandson are beautiful, @Chrissy Page ! ! Now I can see why they have the floating handles for them, so you can do the half-in, half-out of water pictures. The underwater ones are just awesome ! !
    I would love to be able to swim and take pictures like that .

    Glad you can get those things on Amazon for a good price, Yvonne. Maybe that's motivation enough to get me doing it. Had nothing I really wanted but getting things for my grandson like accessories for his GoPro would be appreciated.

    I wondered how the half in-half out shots were done, lol.

    Thanks Kate, and funny thing is that his 12 yr old brother is very fair skinned with blue eyes and blonde hair. Yes, they have the same father, lol.

    Thanks Patsy! I may be moving there in about a year. I do have a room there now but only use it when I visit.

    I will have to rent a storage unit for all my stuff but that's not too bad and I'll save loads of money because I won't have any expenses except the storage unit.

    It's a big house though and sometimes I'm too lazy to get something from my room if I'm in the kitchen. :)

    Well I would need more because it's a two story! But after thinking about this for a very long time, the pros out weigh the cons.

    It will take a year for me to do this...downsizing etc. 17 yr old goes to college next year and although I'm not taking his room it will be a better time to move in.

    I hope so, Patsy. Lots of positives but a few negatives also. Mom, can you make dinner tonight? Mom, can you do this or that?

    I shouldn't complain because it would only be cooking and probably picking up or dropping off 12 yr old somewhere
    But I hate cooking anymore.

    You may hate cooking anymore. You're in a rut at present but once you settle in, I bet you enjoy doing the
    odd meal. I know its gonna be good, so be positive me girl - OK ? :)

    True, plus I wouldn't have to clean because she has cleaners come every week and I'd rather cook than clean anyway.

    Did I tell you I was lazy? :)

    Well since you're my twin from a past life, I'll go with your good vibes. Thanks Patsy, all joking aside. :)

    It's a major decision and I know I need to make changes and this will be the best for all. For one thing, if I need surgery for anything in the future living here will be a problem.
