Miscellaneous stuff at the end of the week

Isand66 will love my 3 backpacking alcohol stoves that I made from beer cans.  They weigh virtually nothing and will each boil 2 cups of water in 6 minutes.  Then there is this weeks benetton find for 50 cents this time.  Next would e a very nice lunch with YW chai seed orange turmeric bread.  Today's new batch if aranchello.  Part of this weeks batch of marmalade, strawberry ginger apple jam and caramelized minneola marmalade.  Two mini BBQ / smokers made from tin cans and tea tins.  A nice  vegetarian lunch of failed hamburger buns made originally as a kaiser roll (that were too soft and disintegrated as hamburger buns) that were resurrected as a grilled pepperjack cheese sandwich, bean dip, chips, salad and little melon.  Even rejected failures can usually be used for something else like croutons, altus, bread crumbs.....

How do you like the pictures my newer, if still old, Sony webbie Video camera takes?

tell any difference in the quality my Sony Webbie Video camera pictures over the cell phone ones?

Certainly an improvement, though some seem to still be out of focus.

the auto focus function.  Don't know what I can do about that but will look at taking pictures farther away and then croping them later.  I'm thinking it may be a macro focusing problem?

Are you using the flash?  If not, maybe your lighting is too low which is causing you to get some camera shake.  Does the camera have a fill flash function?

in the bright AZ sun and half indoors.  No flash on this video web camera.  I don't know if it has image stabilization though.  The instruction book seems to have gone missing.  I may just have to get a camera that has a macro function, image stabilization and a flash.
